Girl's Weekend to NYC!

We had another Girl's weekend to NYC and had a fantastic time ... as usual.

This trip, Maren was kind enough to drive us up in her Sequioa (very nice) which was a step up from our previous years in the 1970's conversion van. But hey, I cannot complain, we had alot of fun driving up in that van and were so greatful that Jana's in-laws let us borrow it!!!

Maren also got us a wonderful room at the Marriott Marquis ... so very nice!

Friday night we took the opportunity to go to the Manhattan Temple, which was just beautiful. When you are inside, you forget that you are in the middle of NYC and all the hustle and bustle. It was wonderful!

Saturday we had the pleasure of going to Jana's cousin's home from brunch in Queens. As Maren says, 'to see how the locals live' ... Jana cousin was a great hostess and served a wonderful brunch.

We then made our way to Canal Street ... for those of you who are not familiar with NYC, this is bargain central ... let's just say, they find things that fall off the back of delivery trucks ... but mostly filled with knock-offs. We had fun bargaining with the MANY street vendors.

Our goal was to also get a chance to see a show, but Maren, Jana and I did not purchase any tickets prior to arriving in NY, so we stood in line at the TKTS for discount tickets to see the Drowsy Chaperone. It was great because it was playing at the Marriott right down stairs. The show was hilarious! We had a great time. Lenore and Judith went to see Madam Butterfly and said it was wonderful as well.

So yes, another fun and successful trip to NYC with good friends, a lot of laughs, and very little sleep!
(Our next girl's trip will be to Germany where Brooke is moving this summer, watch out Brooke, here we come!)
