Our experience, in a word, was Phenomenal. We had the absolute best time ever in New York. Our hotel was perfect, the experiences were outstanding, we didn't want to leave!
Next time we won't be bogged down with all the tourist stuff so we can actually venture out and hook up with people! We honestly didn't know where the time had gone. It just flew by. There was so much to do and to see we were going nonstop. Luckily we got all of the tourist trap spots out of the way this go round. It was such a bummer to wait in line for so long. We seriously spent more time on lines waiting to get into the attractions than we actually spent viewing the attraction itself. We were lucky enough to save a few bucks via a CityPass ticket book but man, I hope to never stand in another line again… Really the only main attraction we missed was the top of the rock. I am still pissed with myself for losing those tickets. There is always a next time though!
After New York we returned to put the final touches on our Halloween Birthday party for shuttermonkey. He turned turned 30! So naturally we have to celebrate in style. There was a lot of food (way too much food, anyone want some?) a lot of fun, and a lot of crazy costumes! It was a blast. Never again will I be planning such a large affair… It's way too hectic and stressful. Even now I still feel like I forgot something! but anyway, if you haven't already, go glomp the monkey and congratulate him on 30 years of taking up space on this rock we call a home.
Now it's back to work… bear with me while I play catch up. :B
How did you guys spend the last couple of weeks. Have any interesting halloween stories to share? What's the haps?!
