the big apple

This post, along with many other catchup's, is well overdue. But like I always say, better late then never!

Last week I had a work trip planned to New York City. It would be the first time in the big apple, and I was definitely going to take advantage of my two cousins living there and willing to show me around.

I flew into La Guardia airport Sunday around 12:30. I took a taxi (first one Ive ever been in by myself, i know, dont judge until youve been in a cab in south florida) to the hotel to check in and drop my bags off. The ride into the city was almost like me living out a childhood dream. Im sure all the New Yorkers out there are asking "Is she kidding?" right now. But you have to understand. When I was little, I dreamed of moving to New York. Becoming this big fashion designer, or magazine editor. Living it up on the upper east side (I know, a little too much gossip girl, sorry). Looking up and seeing these huge buildings. Waling down 5th Ave. Shopping, shopping, oh and some more shopping. So, when I saw the city skyline as we drove over the bridge, you could imagine all the things going through my head.
 

Once I was settled in I gave my cousin Kristin a call. She's originally from LA but once she graduated college she ended up moving to the city and landing a pretty nice PR job. My other cousin, Ryan, her older brother, lives in the city as well and works for a record company. (I know, totally livin the life the two of them, can you say jealous?) But they both were awesome as usually. Kristin taking me around during the day. Giving me the express tour of the city. We walked everywhere. Time Square. Central Park. Rockefeller Center. Empire State Building. Apple Store. (squeezed that one in there. hehe). Madison Square Park. The Flat Iron building. You name it, we went there.

Work was also really good. The company I work for has offices all around the country (I guess world too) and Ive now been to 3 of them. Boston. Atlanta. New York. Ive decided, New York is by far my favorite. The people were so nice. The hotel is literally right across the street. Its on Park Ave so its within walking distance to any place you can imagine. The boss even ended up taking me to dinner one night at Les Halles, which is Anthony Bordain's restaurant. The Filet Mignon with Bearnaise, was absolutely to die for! yum yum.

So the trip was a success. Cant wait to go back (they say in prob bout  60days they want me back up there). And for you? Here is a bunch of photos from my trip:
