took a bite

Seemed like the day would never come, but I finally got a break from school! I decided to make the most of my 2 weeks off by spending 5 days of it visiting my sister in the Big Apple. Last year Erik and I visited for our first time, making sure to hit all the tourist spots. This time was fun because I got to spend time with local New Yorkers and spend a little time doing what they do. Since I’m sure no one likes to see a million pictures of the same two people with different backgrounds, I decided to choose just a few to share.

The first pic of my visit. With all the humidity and heat, I decided it’d be a good idea to get something in while still in the comforts of A/C.

Although my sister was a little embarrased to be looking like the tourist, we did have some fun taking random pictures in odd places.

I have always wanted to see a Broadway play – what better one to be my first than Phantom!

One of my most favorite things in the whole wide world is to try new food and new places to eat. I loved every place I tried, and on my last night out we stopped by this place after the play. I love cheese. Last year I discovered the wonderfulness that is a cheese plate. Most of the time the plates include about three somewhat uncommon cheeses. The place we went has over 40 cheeses to choose from to create your own plate. Needless to say, it was the perfect ending to my trip. (I also partly want to visit again just so I can eat there.)

And yes, this photo wasn’t taken during my trip, but it happens to be one of my favorites – a few of the presents I brought home for my two handsome boys. PJ’s from Chinatown and New York outfits for their Build-A-Bear’s.

Thanks Jenn for letting me crash on your couch, embarrass you in front of your friends and drag you all around the city. Thanks to the grandparents for watching the monkeys so I could have a more relaxing vacation. And thanks to Kel for getting me the sweet hook-up on tickets (which BTW, I’ve never flown JetBlue before, but I loved it! Free satellite TV & radio in every headset – super awesome.)
