New York City

I got a great opportunity to go to NYC for a pretty inexpensive trip. It was really fun and I went with three fun girls from my ward who have all been before so I was in good hands. We had a blast and it was the fastest, and most exhausting 36 hours of my life!

Early morning train:) The train was really great to ride

View from the Ferry

Me on the ferry

My first cab ride:)

My first real Broadway show! Mary Poppins was awesome!

Yummy food at an awesome restaurant in Brooklyn

Our NYC tour guides

Dinner was amazing! My friend was friends with the cook and she spoiled us with yummy Thai food.

24 layer chocolate cake! Thanks Catherine for finding this gem for us:)

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge on our way back to the hotel at the end of the night

Grand Central Station

Central Park

Ground zero in the works

The view from our Hotel room, it was so awesome at night too! It was the 32nd floor

The toy store was unbelievable and I took a million pictures.

Something for me to wear! I made my first skirt using this tutorial and it turned out great! I had some issues along the way but not near as many as I expected since I've never done something like this before. The zipper was a learning curve but I got it in and it actually looks decent. (thank goodness for this tutorial) I am for sure going to be doing more projects like this in the future since I LOVE the way it turned out.
