A Early Birthday Surprise!!

OK, let's just start right off the bat and say that I have the best FREAKING husband in the whole world. Many of you know that we changed our New York trip (the one that we've been planning since we got married) to go to Hawaii with Mel and Kirk.

Ben has been dropping hints around lately that he wanted to tell me my bday present now, so we could plan. Now my bday is not until June 5th. Not too far away, so I told him to stuff it and keep the surprise to himself (I love surprises). But today he finally just told me.

WE'RE GOING TO NEW YORK!

Not just for a weekend, but for week and for the forth of July to boot. This means that we get to watch fireworks over the statue of liberty. He he he. I am giddy just thinking about it. He he he. See I just can't stop.

This morning Ben was saying that we need to buy tickets for some shows (like Wicked) now because they are so popular. He said, "We could see one a day, or even one in the afternoon and one at night, unless you think that is overboard." I laughed and said, "I think I'll manage!" I mean, come on, does he honestly think that I would get sick of MUSICALS. PU-LEASE!

So anyways, I just had to spread the AWESOME news and ask any New York pros out there, I know you're there, to give me any advice on hotels, shows, tickets and places that we must go and eat! Woo hoo!

He he he (See, still excited!)

Here are some of the ones that we Might See...

Wicked because... Well, It's Wicked.
I've seen Lion King in LA, but Ben REALLY wants to, so we just might.
Hello? Do you know me? Mary Poppins is my IDOL!The MOST beautiful music I have ever heard. I HAVE to see this one. Ben has already, but too dang bad!

Any others that YOU recommend?

I guess we are New York pros since we spent a couple of hours at JFK yesterday, This is such exciting news!!! Way better than your original plans! Can't wait to hear all the details you are planning. Now we really will have to recreate a 4th BBQ when S&P get back from Puerto Rico!

AHhh exciting! How did I miss this update? WOW. So, NY! I'm jealous. You have to see Aida. It's the best. Last time I was in NY my family saw that, it's wonderful.

I'm sad we can't go with y'all! Maybe next time. :)

Megan....I hope you remember me from your ward in Provo last year. I check your blog every once in a while and I am so excited that you get to go to NY! We lived there last summer and it was amazing. If you are looking for some fun places to eat go to Ellen's Stardust Diner and Cafe Lalo. Ellen's Diner is near Times Square and it is a lot of fun! Cafe Lalo has the best waffles in the world! Dylan's candy bar is a fun candy shop and Patsy's is a great place to get pizza! If the line to the top of the Empire State Building is long, go to the Top of the Rock. There is usually no wait, and the view is just as amazing if not better. Hit up as many broadways as you can...they are amazing! Wicked is a must! Hope you have fun....Im jealous!
