Yankees!

Today we went to a Yankees game! It was so much fun! They played the Texas Rangers and kicked their butts. Seriously, it was kind of a boring game because they got beat so bad. Both Jeter and A-Rod hit home runs, and so did one of the Texas guys!

I went with a bunch of English girls, and didn't realize until they started asking me bunches of baseball questions....they don't have baseball in England. I knew that, but it just didn't click. So, I spent a lot of time trying to explain the game. If you know me, you know that I don't know a lot about baseball. There was a lot of "uhhh...i think its like....kinda like...uhhhh" but I think they got the basics of it by the end of the game.















Cute photo...but my eyes are closed! Figures!

Betsey Johnson SAMPLE SALE!!!!

I worked a couple days at the Betsey Johnson sample sale. No, there weren't any fights or anyone getting trampled or any of those crazy sample sale stories. Did you hear about that riot at the American Apparel sample sale in London? Yeah...none of that.

It was basically just a small conference room in a hotel full of racks of clothes and tables of accessories set up basically like a retail store. Very low key. It was pretty calm with a few rushes here and there, but it was basically like working any other retail job. I was on the registers for most of the time.

Dad and Kurtis: Day 3

On Sunday, we took the 'uptown' bus tour that led us through the Upper West Side, Harlem, Museum Mile, and past Central Park. We got off the bus at Central Park and walked around and had some New York hot dogs. Sooo good, but so bad.

We had a pretty chill day. By day three, we were all pretty tired out. So, we headed back to the hotel for a while. Dad and Kurt tried to fix my computer for a while and we just lounged around for a while. Later, we got food and watched some tv.

It was pretty low key, but it was just nice to hang out with them for a while.

I feel like I'm missing something that we did on Sunday, but I can't figure it out! Dad or Kurt - let me know if I forgot anything!

Dad and Kurtis: Day 2

We decided to get one of those bus tour packages and check out the city. It worked out really well because we got to see a huge chunk of the city, more than if I had tried to take them around and show them things!

We started off the morning with the 'downtown' leg of the tour. This ended up covering a lot of what we had seen the day before (WTC...Wall St...Battery Park...) but thats ok! We also transferred to a 'Brooklyn' tour bus that took us around the Brooklyn botanical gardens and the downtown area of Brooklyn. It was fun, but SO HOT. We ended up on a bus with a glass top instead of an open top, and it was like a greenhouse. I was about the die by the end of that leg of the trip.

We then hopped back on to a 'downtown' bus and we took it all the way up to Rockefeller Center. Dad really wanted to go to the Top of the Rock, and I'm glad that we did. Most people think to go to the top of the Empire State Building, but this way when you take photos, you have the Empire in the skyline!














After that, we walked to Times Square and had dinner at Bubba Gump's. I think this was probably the highlight of the trip for my brother. ;)

Then, we hopped back on another bus. Seriously, so much bus riding that day! We took the 'night tour' which is probably my favorite leg of all the touristy NYC bus tours. It takes you all over the city and even into Brooklyn. We got some great shots of the New York skyline from Brooklyn. It was a lot of fun!















It was a packed day and we were all super exhausted by the end of it!

My dad and brother visit! Day 1

My dad and brother came to visit me and I was super excited about it! My dad was here in high school (about 40 years ago!) and my brother has never been here, so I was eager to share one of my favorite cities with them.

On Friday, we went down to the Financial District to check out the World Trade Center site and Wall Street. I haven't really been down there yet, so we all got to play tourists together. They are in the process of rebuilding the WTC buildings, so it is just a huge construction site at the moment. We did go and check out a free museum that is displaying the plans for the new WTC and had a lot of information on 9/11. It is supposed to be completed on Sept 11, 2011...but it barely looks like they've started! They best be gettin on it.















We continued to walk downtown to Wall Street and see all of those places downtown. We had tickets to the Statue of Liberty, so we just moseyed on down to Battery Park to catch the ferry. We had to go through airport-style security just to get on the ferry, and once again to get into the monument! Crazy! It was really fun walking around the island and taking photos of the Statue and all that.

After that, we went and got pizza at a really great spot in the Financial District...I wish I could remember the name! And then we headed back uptown.




















That night, we went and saw Avenue Q!!!! I have been wanting to see this musical for forever, and it was amazing. If you don't know, Avenue Q is basically an adult musical spoof of Seasame Street. The actors use puppets to sing songs about porn and racism and its really hilarious and silly. We saw it at the New World Stages which only had about 500 seats total, and we were in the third row! Great seats! My dad and brother aren't really ones for musicals, but they seemed to enjoy it as well.

It was a long and tiring day, but a great start to their trip!
