    Some of the sidewalks/roads had several inches of standing water on the way to work from the bus stop this morning so my shoes/socks got wet. I had to take my socks off - bare feet is warmer than cold, wet socks.

    My husband took the day off of work today, because he needed to have some work done on his car. Costly way to score a 4 day weekend.

    Re: RCMC # 136 - It's Not Easy Being Green - Hop to it everyone....

    Okay...good gosh I've been busy. Up until this upcoming weekend, there's been NO downtime since I got back from the honeymoon. So here's what I've been up to:


    New York was amazing. Cold, but a lot of fun. We did nearly anything and everything you could think of. Tickets to Letterman, was on the show. Stood outside on the TODAY Show. Was on multiple times. Went to the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square many times (right down the block from our hotel, the Manhattan Club). Grand Central Terminal, Yankee Stadium, The Apple Store on 5th Ave., Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 9/11 Memorial.....and I think that's it. Might be missing something..

    Food: STREET VENDORS. My gosh. Street food in NYC is absolutely wonderful. Aside from that, Carnegie Deli was amazing. Junior's Cheesecake nearly every night, and I'm sure I've got diabetes because of that alone. Breakfasts at Fluffy's, and dinner at Guy Fieri's place off Broadway.

    Entertainment: Newsies....if you ever get a chance to see this show (they're starting a national tour this year, and for all us SoCal-ers, they're going to be here March through April of next year), GO SEE IT. The set was really, REALLY simple (three rotating staircases), and the cast carried the play well. Music is high energy and just a lot of fun to sing along with.

    Funny Story about Newsies though. The night we went, I accidentally double booked our one and only fancier dinner at this place called Hillstone (on 27th? Close to that...) for 6:30, and Newsies at 7:30 at the Nederlander Theater on Broadway and 41st). I thought Newsies was the night after our dinner. I get a e-mail about the show at 7:00. Tickets were back at the Manhattan Club (our hotel on 56th St). We had to scramble, get a taxi to go from 27th to 56th, grab the tickets, and back down to 41st for the show, in 30 minutes. It was a foolish mistake, but thankfully she's understanding. We made it to the show, and ended up grabbing dinner at this place called cinema cafe after we went up to the empire state building that night.


    In really short, that was new york. Any other questions about it, let me know.

    Once we got back into LA on thursday, I had one final surprise left. She's never stayed at the Grand Californian Hotel, and neither have I. I had asked a friend inside the company to help me with getting a room, and as a wedding present, they graciously surprised me with paying for the entire thing. I had planned on paying half with them. Anyway...we get into LA, she's hungry and tired from a 6 hour flight and thinks we're going home.


    Not.

    I start driving south, and she wants to know what's up. I start to tell her that I have one more surprise and we aren't going home. I told her the plan and she was beside herself, and excited that I had kept a surprise for that long (I'm notorious for not being able to keep a surprise, because I get too excited to give it to the person). So we check in, and when the Cast Member was telling us our room, he said: "go down this hall, make a right, another right, and the double doors are your room at the end of the hall. Happy anniversary, you have one of our best suites in the hotel."

    It was unreal. Disney magic at its finest. Even I didn't expect that!


    Now fast forward to the last few weeks: work, work, work, work, work. Friends coming over to see the new apartment, now that it's all set up. Last friday as a late wedding present, my wife got me tickets and VIP to see Switchfoot at the Wiltern. Got to meet the band, hang out during soundcheck, front row the entire show, etc. Then this last week I got accepted to CSUB for my undergrad studies (communications major), so I'm filling out FAFSA, and getting all the good stuff lined up for classes this fall. Since nothing is planned this weekend, I'm going to sleep in, do absolutely nothing but get my blog updated, photoshop, and just hang out and really unwind from everything going on. And now I'm gonna shut up and finally share some photos from everything.

    Oh, and if you were wondering about how close it was for the Switchfoot show, this is what it was like ALL night.

    It's hard to believe that it's Playoff Hockey time again already. A wild game between the Hawks and the Blues. Hawks are up 3 goals to 2, in the 2nd period.

    Blackhawks lost in triple overtime. Not a good start to the playoffs.

    My husband is off today, and he is taking me to pick up my new glasses at noon.

    Happy Good Friday, everyone.

    Apparently I need to start getting up earlier so I'm not so far behind. Like... when the alarm goes off and not 10 minutes later.....

    I got up earlier today because I didn't shower last night and needed to shower and wash my hair and was STILL late leaving the house. I drove in since I was too late to make it to the Transit Center and catch the bus but traffic was light so I got to work a little early.
