I thought I'd share some pictures of what my sisters and I did in New York and tomorrow I'll give you the Martha low-down. I brought my nice camera, but never had the energy to drag it with daily. We walked so much, so I just ended up using my iPhone instead.
I LOVE NYC! I'd been there once before when my husband and I got engaged, but I got to see a lot more this time around.
We hit China Town to score a cute knock-off bag for my sister who didn't get to come :(
There was a sweet Lego store at Rockefeller Center. My boys would have drooled all over the place.
There was a huge Toys 'R Us in Times Square. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pose with Ironman.
Here are my sisters in Times Square. My little sister Cassie is 7 months pregnant and she was such a trooper. We walked and walked and walked and she was right there with us. She scored some discounts when she bargained, due to her prego belly. It was really funny.
She even got a nice present from a bird in Central Park. So thoughtful :)
There were so many cool buildings to look at. I should have taken more pictures, but I was too busy looking.
We had hot dogs at the original "Gray's Papaya." Yum!
We went to M and J Trimming. My sister took this picture. I wish I had taken some, but I couldn't pick my jaw up off the floor to take one. WOW. That place was incredible. Billions of trims, buttons, elastics, and everything else crafty. It was astonishing.
My very favorite part of NYC is the subways! My sisters would laugh at me because I got so excited to use them. Thanks for the tip on the Subway app too. That helped SO much.
There is so much incredible tile/mosaic work in the subways too. My sister Jodi thought it would be cool to do something like this as a kitchen backsplash. I agree. So awesome.
I'll give you the Martha report tomorrow. It was seriously fun. My sisters got some sample products in the audience.
Thank you all for sharing your great tips on where to go and what to do. We had so much fun. I will live on all the memories for a long, long time.
Thanks for reading.
