New York, New York

I have to admit I totally could live in New York. Not forever, just for a few months or a year or something - I just love it! I grew up going a lot with my mom and fell in love with just about everything. So when I was interviewing for this job about two years ago and they asked me how I felt about having to possibly go there every year for business I thought I had died and gone to heaven. So now every spring break I take 15-20 students to the city and meet with designers, showrooms, trend forecasters, etc. and am just fine with "having to" (hah!).

First night at ESPN Zone!
(sorry it's a little blurry, I left my good camera at home)

The fun part is Jared gets to come too. Although it seemed funny that I was waking up at 8am to go to meetings and he got to sleep in and shop all day (I think the guys at the NBA store knew him by name at the end of the week). We had such a great time - we went to Bryant Park where New York Fashion week just ended, walked around Soho for a while, shopped pretty much all over (I have the best husband in the world, love you babe!) and ate at ESPN Zone not once but twice!

Bryant Park

These little dogs were waiting on their owner outside of Starbucks - so cute!!

Reading brail.
(Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm blind. This time I think my glasses gave it away...)

Little boutique in Soho that I love!

Oh and we got to meet with Tommy Hilfiger at their corporate office! He was so nice.

Last night at ESPN Zone in Times Square, Jared couldn't get enough!

Like a kid in a candy store...

Counting down to next year's trip already.

I just love how everything is right at your fingertips and you can walk just about anywhere. It's like home away from home. But it was good to come home to warmer weather, and I did miss my cold-hearted-love-withholding-catdog Chauncey.

So fun:) Loved your last comment on my blog, I'm gonna have to figure out a way to get to the Lobby of Hobbies, without Ryan noticing a decrease in our bank account:) See you guys tonight!!!

That looks like so much fun! Definately the best way to spend your Spring Break. I heard about the crazy airplane experience! My heart was beating out of my chest just listening to it!

Someday we're gonna get there. Mike has always dreamed of going at Thanksgiving time. I think that would be a good time to go too - walking around the streets with leaves falling - feeling like I'm in a classic Woody Allen film. Eating tasty foods and seeing beautiful things. Though the tasty foods part sounds the best. But then there are times that I imagine that NYC would make me feel like the galleria does - poor and poorly dressed.

Wow yall had a good crowd of students this year!! I'm jealous that yall met Tommy Hilfiger! That's so cool. Alex and I miss you and Jared but we are so excited to meet up when we get settled in Killeen/Harker Heights or wherever we can find a house to rent. :-)

P.S. I started my own blog but it's a Food Blog only. I'm quite obsessed with cooking these days.
