I Love NYC

I love NYC - I mean I really, really LOVE NYC!

We celebrated our anniversary a couple of weeks ago in this fabulous city!

This was one of the best surprises my sweetie has pulled off. Here's how it went down...
I was in Idaho on our actual anniversary. I spent that day with Mom B. at BYU education week - loved it! Dave was in Arizona. He called me during the day and told me that there were a couple of things that I needed to look at in my email when I got home that night. There were 2 emails from Dave. The first one said: "Happy Anniversary. You're the best thing that ever happened to me. Lets go find Delilah. I love you forever. Dave" There was also the link to the video "Hey there Delilah", you know, by Plain White T's. Love that song! Hmmm..... :) I was afraid to guess... The next email was from Jet Blue - 2 airline tickets, 5 days in NYC! (And amazing babysitters all arranged too: mom and dad B. flying down to keep the kids!!) AND... we were going with the Sabeys, our dear friends from dental school days in Birmingham - WOO-HOO!!! Love them so much! I was so SURPRISED! (especially since we spent 10 days on my dream vacation in the Mediterranean in May - one of these days I'll post the pictures - there are TONS - I am working on an imovie - stay tuned).

(Seriously babe, you blew me away!)

We had a wonderful, super FUN trip! We saw and did tons: Wall Street, Federal Hall, Time Square, Ground Zero, went up inside the Statue of Liberty, toured Ellis Island, saw Phantom of the Opera, Little Italy (Mmmmm), China Town, saw Mary Poppins, walked the Brooklyn Bridge, watched BYU's awesome victory at the ESPN zone in Time Square, desserts at Serendipity (yummy), went to church in the Manhattan temple building, ate at Tavern on the Green, Grand Central Station, top of the Empire State Building, cheesecake at Juniors (yummiest!), US Open (saw Oudin and Federer play and win - saw Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban), Yankees game, The Met, and biked Central Park. It was a blast!

So here are the highlights - I made a little slide show (this links to my Shutterfly site) and I also added them as an album on my Shutterfly too incase you want a better look at the photos. I still am not loving the quality of the slide shows... I have been experimenting with different formats - think I might need to purchase the HD subscription through Shutterfly to increase the video quality... still figuring all this out :)

NYC is on my must see list. Sounds like a great time! It's hard to believe we're all old enough to celebrate these 15-16 year anniversaries. Where does the time go?
