The Concrete Jungle and Me

New York City. I am so in love with this city. It fascinates me. This trip I finally got to learn the bones of New York. With Mike being in classes all day Sunday and Monday I had to be alone in NY and find my way around by map! It wasn't all that bad. Mike and I rode on the NY Site seeing buses. At first I thought they were going to be so stupid. I mean it's the typical tourist thing to do, but they turned out to be really fun. It was worth every penny. My favorite tour was the drive through Harlem and Uptown. We drove around Columbia University, which was gorgeous. Every building was jaw droppingly beautiful.

I figured out the subway system and now ride it like a true New Yorker. Well, almost. A real New Yorker comes equipped with headphones, a book to read, and a bag or backpack full of food and other hobbies to keep them entertained. I brought nothing and I'm sure I stuck out like a sore thumb, but I had way more fun watching everyone around me than I would have listening to music or reading. The sound of the Subway is like music to my ears. You can feel the rumble inside your chest! Below you can tell I was to inspired by all of the cathedrals. There's one on almost every block. Each one different than the next. They are huge and amazing!

This trip was also ALL about shopping and food. I am a huge foodie and I knew I had to stop by a few places to get some good grub. One of those places was Bill's Bar and Burger. Below is a pick of the wonderful delicatessen we indulged in (thanks Kathi for helping us find the place). This, my friends, is the Campfire Milkshake. Oh my, it is soooooo good. Made with homemade ice cream, home made marshmallows, and roasted and toasted for the finishing. It's amazing. You must have it if you ever go to NYC!

Happy Halloween?

You might have wondered why there's a question mark at the end of my happy Halloween. Well let me inform you that our Halloween was very happy up until about 10:00 pm when Remee woke up vomiting from an overload of cookies. Poor thing didn't go back to sleep until 3:00 am when she finally stopped spewing! But before that, Halloween was a blast. Remee loved taking candy from people and stashing it in her bag. And surprisingly she loved being in her costume... and I loved seeing her in it. She was adorable. Everyone was wondering where I got it. I found it online for only $15.00 plus shipping. Now it's even cheaper than that! Not bad right?
