The City That Never Sleeps

It was our very last day and uptown was calling our names. We wanted to venture to all facets of the city, so this would be our final ride through the town.
The Dakota building is pictured above. This building is one of the greats of New York. Not just because it will not only be remembered as John Lennon's home, but the grandeur it represents on central park west.
Couldn't help but snap the picture above my sweet husband. He loves Seinfeld and this is where he resides.
Saint John the Divine's church is spectacular. There is a famous statue outside where the angel is fighting evil. This church is stunning.
We made a quick stop once we arrived to Central Park East. I was admiring the view and happened to look up at the trees.
It has always been a "someday" of mine to see the beginning of fall in the city. Well I got my wish. The leaves had truly started to fall, and the wind got a little brisk. It was officially autumn in the city.
We ate an early lunch at the famous Stardust Diner. This is where the staff sings as you eat. It was a fun stop. Not to mention the talent!
We wanted to try a different museum experience this time. We found this treasure. Discovery at Times Square is remarkable.
Took these quick pics in between exhibits.

And we made our way to the official Paris Baguette grand opening. Couldn't help but love sitting in the window people watching enjoying a fruit tart.
Ran into this gem on the way back through Times Square. He is working his way through Real Estate school in NY. We had the best conversation with him. Oh and a little banter of course!
So once we got back to the hotel we noticed a slight change of weather. Since we are from Oklahoma we didn't take the dark clouds too serious. However, New Yorkers are used to being in a tornado watch. Our sweet friends Koby and Sarah were at the airport when they realized their flight was going to be almost 6 hours delayed. Only in the city can you pull off last minute tickets to Newsies for 4 and Times Square hotel an hour and a half prior to the show. We did it! And it was worth it. So glad these two came back to Manhattan for an unforgettable night.
It was picture perfect! We were able to meet the lead role Jack Kelly. Koby was friends with him through their Disney internship. He was such a down to earth guy. We chatted with him asking him all sorts of questions including what his schedule each week was. I was star struck.

His face was all over in advertisments. Couldn't help but take this picture.
We went to a famous pizzeria in Hell's Kitchen close to Restaurant Row. It was delicious. This is where Elaine told her famous celebrity stories and such. It was an unforgettable night.
What a true adventure to have with my sweet mom. I have a feeling this will always be "our city." Even though we will venture to new ones; New York will always be our first love. We hope Chicago is our next spot. We will see how Chi-Town treats us.

For MAJ...you are such a special and significant person in my life. How can I ever begin to thank you for all you have done and all you will do? Not only for me but my handsome husband and joyful Izabelle. You have beautiful qualities I hope shine on in generations to come. I am grateful you were a mom to me growing up versus the luxury of your friendship. You see, because you raised me instead of being my friend first I now know how things might have turned out. Your friendship and guidance mean the world to me now. My favorite thing about us is our giggles. I love to laugh with you. Cheers to you! I am forever grateful. I truly relish in the moment due to your significant LOVE and grace.

Cheers to you New York. Until we meet again!

About Me

Dreams really do come true. I have shared many days with the love of my life, Scott. We met in the winter of 2003 and married in the spring of 2008. We welcomed our sweet bundle of joy to the world August 2011. Izabelle has been a true blessing from our Father. We also have a furry pal named Bernie. I love my family and couldn't be more thankful for friends. My hope is that our blog will help share our days with the ones we love.
