Me: "Well isn't Carrie Underwood still singing?..." :)

  1. It was fabulous!! I love hearing your favorite things about the trip and the city. I had forgotten about those avocado shakes - yum. We should find a recipe for them. I laughed about the Today Show comment. I guess what's so funny about it is that I seriously did not see why people were sticking around. haha. I loved the comment about mom's favorite child too.

    I'm going to add a few: watching you fall in love with little things in the Chelsea Market, eating gourmet vegetarian on the Upper East Side squished between two parties on both sides (that's NY for us!), getting free fragrance soap in the Village, handing out (watching mom hand out) McDonald's coupons on the street, going into the temple in Lincoln Square, mom's conversation piece -- the temple pin -- and hearing her bring up the Church any chance she could, seeing how people fall in love with you wherever you go (ex: the temple worker, the waiter, etc. etc) and getting a full week to talk to my amazing, deep, vibrant younger sister. I loved our trip. Thanks for showing me some great new places!!
