I can’t wait to tell you more about our trip to New York City! Just thinking about the past week puts the biggest smile on my face. Will do a complete update with pictures soon, but until then here's a brief overview in numbers…
3: Years we’ve been married (a little early, October 20 is our anniversary) and the reason for this trip
5/4: Days/nights we spent in NYC
4: Celebrity spottings (Kelsey Grammar, Patricia Heaton, Mickey Rourke, Cynthia Rowley)
5th: Row to watch La Cage Aux Folles
6: Pairs of legs in La Cage that made me insanely jealous (who cares if they belonged to men dressed as women?)
1: Times we went the wrong way on the subway
0: Times we took a cab other than to/from the airport
$20,000: What our Peter Lik bamboo photograph is now worth! (We didn’t pay nearly that much, obviously.)
2: Peter Lik galleries we visited
0: Peter Lik photographs we purchased
1: Times Michael knew exactly where we were
6th and 30th: Cross-streets of our hotel
86th: Floor of the Empire State Building with the most amazing view
$0: Amount we put on a credit card. We saved for almost a year and will have nothing to pay off next month. AMAZING feeling!
6: Times we said we could see ourselves living in NYC
6: Times I immediately prayed, “But I’d rather stay in Dallas.”
1: Number of birds that touched my foot (to which I loudly yelled, “Oh my God I’m going to get Swine Flu!” I hope no one was paying attention.)
3: Lbs EACH cookie weighed from Levain Bakery (I wish I was kidding)
10: Times Michael or I said, “Girl? Guy?” and neither of us could come to a conclusion.
2: Times I got teary on the trip. One was when we went the wrong way on the subway. Other was visiting Ground Zero.
90: Average weight of a 5’7” NYC resident (male or female).
74: Average temp while we were there
1: Number of blondes in NYC (that would be me)
And one last number…
28: Age Michael turned today. Wish him a Happy Birthday!
