Dreams of NYC

The Big Apple better watch out...my posse and I are heading your way soon.

Well...at least two of my sisters, a friend and I are taking our first trip to NYC. I'm going to consider them my posse because the trip was my idea!

I am probably more excited about this trip than I have been about a vacation since my first (and second) trip to Kauai...or paradise as I call it.

I'm not sure if my excitement is because I've never been to NYC and there's so much to do and see...

OR if it's because so many of the shows I watch on TV are set in the city.

Here's how I'm envisioning our visit going...

Cue dream sequence music...

We'll be picked up at the airport in a taxicab by Ranjit from How I Met Your Mother...

and he'll drop us off at MacLaren's where we'll suit up and be AWESOME!

The next morning we'll get up and grab a coffee at Central Perk.

Before heading out for a day of sight-seeing and shopping.

We might even end our evening at a fabulous bar doing some karaoke like this Fab Four...

What? You don't think ANY of that will happen. Really?

OK, I admit that my dreams of hanging out on the couch at Central Perk with Monica and the Gang probably won't come true.

But what about all the cool places I see in the reality shows that revolve around NYC.

We could stop by Mood and pick up some fabrics...

and run into Tim Gunn who will tell us to "make it work!" I think this would totally be the way he'd look at us if we were to try and design an outfit for him!

Or we could just go into Second Time Around - the cool upscale resale shop featured on Bravo's Fashion Hunters.

I'm pretty sure I still can't afford anything in the store even if it's priced 75 percent off the original price but wouldn't it be fun to browse?

Then we could grab a bite at one of the city's many food trucks...

Maybe we could even find the Korilla truck from the Great Food Truck Race show. I'd love to find out if they really did add money to the till.

No matter what we end up doing, where we end up visiting and who we end up seeing, I know the trip will be great.

Any suggestions on must dos while we are in town? Send them my way!


  1. This sounds so dreamy!;0) I have always wanted to go to nyc. have fun!

  2. Have a great time!! I've always wanted to go to NYC too!

  3. I'm living vicariously through you since I have never been. Now go to Paris or London, and I can give you all sorts of ideas! ENJOY! (and keep your eyes open for brushes with fame!)

  4. Wear comfortable walking shoes. I just came back from my first NYC trip with my girls and our feet hurt. Balance your walking time with taxi time and subway time. Definitely get a 7 day metro pass. Taking the subway was uber fun and saved us a lot time
