I {heart} New York - Part 3

It's finally Friday and I wish I was jetting off to NYC for another fun weekend.

However, since we don't have anything scheduled this weekend, I have to admit that staying home sounds pretty good, too!

But...I would like to share more NYC layouts with you. (All of the projects I'm sharing today used Studio Calico products either from their product lines or from their monthly kits.)

The first stop on my guided tour that day (thanks Laurie & Connie!!!) while Tom was in meetings was to Grand Central Station...

The shops at Grand Central Station were amazing, so I didn't argue when the suggestion was made to stop for a snack. I just had trouble deciding what to get. So... I got a canoli AND a cupcake. (The best cupcake I've ever eaten.)

We finally met up with Tom for lunch. We met at Rockefeller Center. !!! In front of the CHRISTMAS TREE. All day I had to keep reminding myself that I WAS REALLY THERE!!!

After Tom was finished with his meetings for the day, we headed to Times Square to wait in line for discounted show tickets. Needless to say, as it was my first time IN TIMES SQUARE (!!!), I took a fair amount of photos. I had to make a 2-page layout to share them. And since this layout makes me happy, I have a few extra little details to share with you...

And there's one last layout to share today - another 2-pager. This layout documents my first dinner in NYC. It was quite memorable...not only did the waiter surprise with a dessert plate to celebrate our anniversary, but since the tables were so close together, my purse knocked over a woman's water glass as we were being seated. I was horrified! But, the restaurant was a cool sight to see, the food was AMAZING, and the icing on the cake was coming home to catch it on an episode of 'Sex & the City' a couple months later. Neat, huh?

This reminds me that I didn't meet my goal of completing my NYC album over summer vacation. I need to get scrapping...

Love your pages! It is so fun to see all of your pictures. Even if it didn't get done by end of summer you have made a lot of progress on your trip :)
