Once Upon a Time....

Once upon a time there were two sisters who went to New York City to visit their friend Mia Fran. They meant to blog about it after they got home but because they don't see each other as much anymore and Kate has all the photos and her internet is really slow it just hasn't happened yet. Well one sister is doing her part and blogging with the photos she does have and expects the other half to add hers as well.
In NYC we:

ate out for every meal
drank lots of coke and diet coke because DP is hard to come by
learned the subway system

got rained out in Central Park twice
had Pinkberry for the first time
watched the Olympics
slept in
ran along the Hudson-Becca
hung out at the pier
played fun games with Mia
rode in a limo around the city-Kate
ate cupcakes, cake, and banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery
walked around Soho
found out how much it costs to go to NYU
saw the DC and Manhattan temples
had a mouse jump out of a garbage can and almost hit her in the face-Becca
caught a mouse inside of Mia's apartment
saw Jay-Z and Beyonce-Kate
waited in line at the Shake Shack for 45 minutes for some delicious food
rode a bus to D.C.
chilled with the East Coast relatives
rode in an old convertible around a beautiful farm in Maryland
stayed up late
ate 10:00 pm dinners
helped cousin Jessi clean out her closet and inherited treasures
saw Mary Poppins on Broadway
got yelled at by a mean bus lady who is in denial about her not so important job
sat by a model on the bus back to NYC

helped Mia pack for her move to SLC
saw some crazy fashion
had our own medals ceremony for ourselves complete with flowers

went to the MET and saw an awesome exhibit on the roof

ended the summer with a bang!

the NFT is such a great invention. I am glad you guys picked up a copy. That trusty little teensy fold out map of the subway is such a gem.

I totally forgot you gals went to NYC. Looks like a blast. Did you bring me back a Magnolia cupcake?

What's with the spacing on this post? Whatever I'm not fixing it. I hope everyone can deal.

It looks like it was lots of fun! New York is not on my list of places i want to go... should i change my mind?
