Second – I am finishing my political work on this campaign this week! YEA!
Third – This past weekend my husband showed that he is the MOST amazing man ever. And no – I don’t think he has even read the blog previous… I haven’t told him about it. :)
Friday we went to his office party in Fairfax VA. (In the D.C. area for those of you outside of VA.) It ended fairly early. I was under the impression that we were just gonna stay in Fairfax that night, maybe go see some of D.C. on Saturday, and have a good weekend… I was PUMPED about the notion.
Late in the week (at packing time.) He said that he had a surprise for me, and that he needed to tell me about it so that I would pack appropriately.
We were going to leave the party in Fairfax and travel the next 4 hours to New York City! We were also going to go ice skating in Rockefeller center. For those that do not know me very well, I have a list of 33 things I want to accomplish before I die. Ice skating with a date in Rockefeller center is one of those things! We had not accomplished one in a while.
So…. Here I am – on skates –
On the ice rink
Under THE Christmas tree
In Rockefeller center.
Ronnie skated too….
He had never ice skated before.
Neither of us fell down.
Even with all these people watching!
We also made it for part of the Today show.
Went to see the Empire State building – I didn’t want to wait in the line to go to the top… maybe next time :)
And yes - - those skies ARE blue in NYC...
and THIS made me laugh out loud... as well as the LONG lines waiting outside!
Went to Macys at Herald Square…. Recession??? I think not. Haha
Then after the insanity of that area of town, we relaxed in Central Park for a while.
At first I thought I wanted to take a horse and carriage ride – but they were really stinky – I changed my mind.
Later, we were able to eat at Serendipity - you know, the restaurant from this movie...
There was a 3 hour wait. We put our name on the list and then went to see Grand Central Station... Where we just happened to walk in as they were doing a light/sound show on the walls.
We sat here.....
We sat here.....
and watched the show.
We thought about shopping here -
We ended by going back through the insane crowds to see this.
We were glad to see this sign - Maybe now we can get some of the stree resolved!
I will do another post maybe tomorrow to discuss the Philadelphia stop as well as Baltimore.
WHAT A WEEKEND!
