NYC 2012

Hans and I had a wonderful trip to NYC. It was my first trip, and I am already ready to go back! Thanks, hubs, for making it a trip to remember.

We did make it to the 9/11 memorial. It was beautiful, peaceful, and quiet. I almost feel badly for taking pictures, but I wanted to capture the memory. Always say a prayer - even 10 years later.

My FAVORITE part was Times Square. We went a bunch of times just so I could soak it all in. Loved all the activity there - even in the rain!

Also on my list was to walk through Central Park - here is the Boat House. 27 Dresses, anyone??

Oh Lenny...our doorman at the hotel. I loved talking to him and he gave us great tips on where to go and what to see. He recently auditioned for Big Brother! Team Lenny!

Rockefeller Center

Empire State Building - so fun and awesome! We picked a great day to go.

I wanted to go to this section of Central Park so badly! All I could describe was that it was in scenes from Maid in Manhattan and Enchanted. So beautiful!

And the food..... Carnegie Deli's fat sandwiches.

Buddakhan in the Meatpacking District - here is dessert - Almond Bread Pudding. Hans states it is the BEST thing we ate all weekend.

Buddakhan and some more goodies. These are the BEST - edamame dumplings and chile rock shrimp. O.M.G. I want some now.

Bouchon Bakery - heavenly!
We walked the Brookyn Bridge then through Chinatown and Little Italy. We hit Lombardi's for the best pizza I've ever had. So delish.

We saw Eric McCormack (Will and Grace - see below), John Larroquette, James Earl Jones, and Ricky Martin - all on Broadway right now. We also saw Carla from Top Chef!

Hans and I also went to see The Lion King at the Minskoff Theater. Hans has never seen it, and he loved it. I love how the animals come right through the crowd - so amazing.

Central Park self pic!

Trump Tower and his new motorcyle. Hans watched Paul Teutle build it on his show so he was excited to see it in person!

Cosmo in Trump's bar!

We also stopped in Serendipity and had a frozen hot chocolate! This sweet treat was one of the main things I wanted while in NYC. It was well worth it :)

I loved every second of our trip - even my sore calf muscles and blisters were worth it! Thanks to my awesome hubby for the memorable trip. I really appreciate you letting me act a fool when I saw all the famous people - especially still loving me after I chased after Ricky Martin's car. That's love, folks.

I can't wait to hit the Big Apple again soon!

SO FUN!!!! It looks like y'all did it all. I am very jelous that you saw so many celebrities. I will never admit this to Ryan, but that is always my main goal when going to NYC. And, I've never seen one! Maybe I'm trying too hard :)
