Springtime in New York

I was in New York earlier this week for three nights, and it was just awesome.  I love New York... really, really love.  If it were a few hundred miles closer to my family, I'd move there.   Anyway, I arrived on Sunday night, and made it to Times Square (where my hotel was) around 10:30 pm.  Since it's the "city that never sleeps", I decided not to either ;)  I wandered around a little, and even found myself on the Times Square Jumbotron!  (Far left hand side, in the grey coat with the red bag).

The next morning, I got up early and made my way to the studio where Good Morning America tapes live.  Unfortunately Robin Roberts was out sick (boo! on multiple levels), but I got to see George Stepanopoulos, Amy Robach, and Josh Elliott!  That was a thrill.

Even more thrilling were the day's guests - Nick Lachey and Mark Wahlberg!  I'm a big celeb junkie (it's totally my guilty pleasure) so this was especially awesome.  It was so fun to see them in person, and was a great way to kick off my trip.

The trip was for work, but between my meetings and training, I was able to squeeze in some solid tourist-time.  I saw the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Bryant Park, Madison Avenue, Park Avenue, Times Square and Central Park.  I walked miles, explored a little, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

It was a great trip.  A ton of work-related work, but also fun.  (Until my flight was canceled.. but that's another story).

Until next time, New York!
