New York….What dreams are made of!
Ever since Carleigh (my 18 year old daughter) was a little girl, we talked about going to New York for her 18th birthday. 18 years flew by and it just so happened that CJ, of J Majors Bridal (my friend & neighbor along with her daughter Erin) , presented a perfect opportunity to make our dream happen….Bridal Fashion Week!!
All of our goals were met:
-started out with attending couture bridal gown fashion show presented by Lazarro
-ate incredible food
-visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral
-shopped til I dropped
-ate more incredible food
-went by Rockefeller Center skating rink
-another bridal fashion show, presented by Claire Pettibone
-shopped some more
-got sandwiched by protestors and feared for our lives in Time Square
-went to Ground Zero
-shopped in China Town, Soho & Greenwich Village
-attended the Knot party
-stood right next to Martha Stewart at the Martha Stewart Party
-went to Ron Ben-Israel’s cake shop
-bought lots of cake supplies at New York Cake & Bake
-went to the top of the Empire State Building
-went to the m & m store
-got my toenail torn off by a “friendly” samaritan
Needless to say, it was a whirlwind 4 days and I was exhausted. I was so glad to get back home & get to work. However, if I had the chance to do it all over again….I would in a New York minute!
