New York State of Mind

Day 1 was nothing short of a massive success for these two West Virginia unleashed in the big city. The first picture we took on day 2 was in front of our hotel. Not because it was some glamorous or fancy hotel but because it was called the pod. See Kasey and I call each other P {:her little girl even calls me Aunt P:} because we say we are 2 peas in a pod. So this picture was a must. 

After what I think was our only non-selfie picture of the weekend it was off for an early morning coffee run and on to Radio City to see the infamous Rockettes Christmas Spectacular. As we walked through the city it was a much different picture at 8 am than it was the night before. It was Santa Con the first day we were there and there were literally thousands of people, girls and guys, dressed up in Santa costumes going on a bar crawl. This meant by 8:30 that night there were just a bunch of drunk Sanatas loose in the city. It was interesting to say the least. So being out in the city at 8am meant that Sanat's were still in bed across the city and the streets were practically empty. 

 Fun fact for the weekend: The weather was amazing the entire time we were there. It was in the 60s the entire weekend. It was so warm that we both opted for ice coffees on our way to the Christmas Spectacular. 

The chandelier in Radio City was in-cred-ible.

SO we did the obvious thing...take yet another selfie. 

The show was one of the top two highlights from the weekend for both of us. It could have gotten even the grouchiest of Scrooges in the Christmas spirit...until they walked out. As we walked out of the theatre the streets were once again jam packed with tourist. 

After the show we did as the locals do, we grabbed some food from the food trucks. Then we did as the tourist do and ate it in Central Park. 

While at lunch, I found my future husband...but apparently he is dating 25 other women? Really Ben?

After lunch we went to Hillsong NYC at the Best Buy Theatre where John Gray spoke. It was perfect and I loved the opportunity to show Kasey what I am a part of on this side of the equator. She loved it too!

Then we did a bit more shopping, because why wouldn't you? 

We made one last stop at Macy's just to see it...all NINE floors of it. It was an incredible sight to see. Every floor was decorated and I am fairly sure they have every piece of clothing, purse, perfume, shoe, and houseware item known to man. NINE floors of a store that is an entire city block. 

We loved every second of the weekend but after a whirlwind 48 hours, we were pooped. 

NYC we will see you next year.
