Amazing Friends Make Amazing Vacations

Roommate M and I decided to take advantage of my last fall break ever and took our first ever trip to the big apple, New York City. It was really my first time traveling with a friend and let me tell you, I had an awesome time. One good friend is all ‘ya need to explore the big city and have a good time 🙂 Though it does make it difficult to get lots of pics of you together. From airports, taxis, and subways, to lots of map reading, walking and blisters, I couldn’t have asked for a better fall break

Here are just a few pics from the trip!!

Not Always Good

I know I am supposed to be posting something good about every day. But honestly, there are some days that just aren’t great, or even good. Is that so bad? No, no one asks for a bad day but that’s just a fact of life. In fact, I know for a fact it was not a great day because I continued my stress shopping and am not even that excited about anything I bought…..probably because I am afraid to balance my checkbook. But it’s not an awful thing to have a bad day every now and then.

On the up side, I am trying my best to look forward to the rest of the week. My birthday is this week, which I never look forward to, BUT I am going to NYC for the first time with my roomie and am excited! I feel like I should be more excited, but I know it’s going to be so much fun toolin’ around the city!! I am going to be a total tourist and am not afraid to be: Central Park, Times Square, Empire State Building. Yay!
