The last day in New York

 The morning started off with cake for Lindsey. And we sang happy birthday, which was special with my croaking voice and it is always magical when Lauren sings;)
We had to hurry out the door to meet one of Connie's author friends at High Line park. It is a really cool park that used to be raised train track and has not been transformed into a very long and beautiful park.
 We started at the end and made our way down it and it really was so cool.

 I liked this fun little spot where you could watch the traffic.

Here is our host the lovely Elizabeth Eulberg. She really was lovely and easy to talk to. I felt like I had known her for years.

We walked all around the west village and that was my favorite part of New York. 
I saw the building they filmed for the TV show Friends (below), and Kiefer Sutherland's house (not pictured)...
...and the "house" of the girl from Sex and the City. I don't even know her name. I have never seen that show.

 I just really liked the colors of the buildings above and below.
 And I accidentally took this picture of my feet and found it later.

I saw this flower and was pretty amazed. It looks like something straight out of wonderland. I have never seen anything like it before.
 When we got back it was time for Connie and I to pack up our stuff so we could go and make our flight. 
 It didn't take long for me to miss these girls. They are the best. I don't know how I got so lucky to have friends like them in my life.

On the flight home I worked some more on my crewel and counted down the minutes until I could get home hug Russ, kiss my children, and go to sleep in my own bed. 

Thank you to:
-Connie for making sure the trip happened 
-Lindsey for riding a bus (or was it train?) from DC to be with us on your 30th birthday weekend.
-Lauren for hosting us and letting us sleep all over your apartment and embarrass you on the subway...and probably everywhere else. I can't wait for the next trip with you girlies.

As for my opinions of New York - it was a fun place to visit and there is so much to see and do that I would love to go back, but NOTHING (except food) is convenient in NY. I live in a place where a lot of things are convenient and I rather like that. And sometimes I feel like too many people is just that - too many people.


  1. Lindsey took a train, silly. Poor Lauren was so embarrassed so often.

  2. I've never been to NY. Mostly because I'm afraid of my plane crashing. But I would maybe take a chance to see that flower. Neat!

  3. I've enjoyed your ny posts- so glad you got to go. There is no place like it.

  4. HER NAME IS CARRIE BRADSHAW AND HOW DARE YOU. i own the entire 6 season box set if you ever want to borrow it. and both movies. of sex and the city that is. but i think you figured that out by now.

  5. i'm so glad you got to go to new york, and glad you had a fun time. i totally get what you're saying about convenience and too many people... but i still think i'd like to live there for a little bit :)
