went to NYC this weekend for a very, very quick visit. nothing related to fashion week either! no IFB conference, no shows for me this season :( however, my parents happened to be in the big apple *plus* a friend who just moved to jersey city has been wanting us to visit her *plus* it was the weekend before MDH’s & my 7th wedding anniversary soooooo, it just all came together for a fun getaway :)
one of the best things to happen on this trip (other than walking around with my parents in times square) was staying with a good family friend in new jersey. she lives mere steps away from the ferry that docks at the world trade center & even that was a less than 10 minute boat ride! my world is overturned now that we can actually go to NYC & not have to stay *in* the city & pay outrageous hotel prices or bum floor space off of pals who live in less than 400 sq feet! she has a gorgeous HUGE apartment with at least 12 foot ceilings, 2 beds & 2 baths! also, she’s the kind of friend who loves company & we never feel we wear out our welcome. plus, we’re good guests & buy her dinner & help her put ikea furniture together…so you know :) even though i look upset on the boat ride back (it was a long & weary day), i’m truly ecstatic!!! hahaha!
