I'm in an Empire State of Mind

I booked tickets for my mom and I to NYC on Jan 28th and I am so excited. We have not been on a vacation together since I was a pre-teen, and we are long over due for some serious mom/daughter time. I can't wait to get a week of just the two of us, no real estate, no distractions. Plus, I fell madly in love with this city about 3 and 1/2 years ago. We went several times in a year long period for our Amazing Race promotion events. I admit, I really wish I could share this trip with Joseph as well, it is kinda "our city," because we truly have had some of the best times of our lives in this spectacular city.
Here are a few pics of our NYC adventures.

Out and about n the Meat Packing district

Eating breakfast at about 3:30 a.m. after a night out at Marquee
There is a whole fabulous after party scene at these amazing sit down breakfast spots in the city

Central Park
glad I threw this raincoat away...

Erika, the producer that recruited me for the RACE and someone that was on Survivor...they were trying to do the "bump"

This club overlooked the city, the girl on the far left is Danielle from the RACE

Pre TAR flies party with our cast
(TAR flies are avid Amazing Race fans who throw the Racers a red carpet event..very surreal)

the Double D's and I (that was the cast's nick name for them)

the interviewers and Joseph and I
Can't wait to share new experiences with my mom. It is restaurant week in NYC...very exciting. I am looking forward to amazing food, wine, entertainment and shopping.
ciao for now!
