New York City is one of my absolute favorite cities. Jason and I had the privilege of going to NYC last week with my mom for her 60th birthday. We had so much fun celebrating in the Big Apple! We ate (a lot), went to the theater, and enjoyed hanging out in the City. We saw three fabulous shows (Thanks to the Half Price ticket booth): Cat on a Hot Tin Roof - starring James Earl Jones & Phylicia Rashad, Mary Poppins, and Legally Blonde. All of them were great shows but my favorite was Legally Blonde. If you are planning a trip to Broadway anytime soon, I highly recommend it. We laughed hysterically!
This was not my mom's first trip to NYC, but it was Jason's first time. If you know me at all, you know that I am the natural trip planner/coordinator in most any group, so I was happy to plan our itineraries for each day. Most of all, I was really thankful that my mom and Jason were willing to put up with my "tour of NYC via the best food joints". Oh, the perks of having a pregnant travel guide. =) My favorites? The Buttercup Bake Shop - cupcake heaven! And, Good Enough To Eat - a fabulous little place in the Upper West Side serving yummy comfort food...macaroni and cheese to dream about.
My mom is such a fun traveler. She loves to laugh and I'm convinced she can have a great time ANYwhere. I'm so glad she's my mom! Thanks, Mom, for letting us celebrate in style with you!
