I am so sad for New York

I am so sad for New York

I was in bed last night reminiscing about our recent holiday to New York with my husband. My heart was a little achey. I felt so sad for the New Yorkers after Hurricane Sandy hit. I watched it all unfold on the tv, twitter and live YouTube updates. I text my husband furiously all day Monday andContinue reading →

I’m home and it’s back to normal programming

Hi there! We are home safe and sound. We drove straight to the kids school and grabbed them out of class (even in my stinky clothes when I hadn’t showered for 30 hours – noice!). They were so happy to see us! And I haven’t stopped smooching them. I’ll be asleep by 7pm I bet.Continue reading →

Today is my last day…

(sshhh I’m reading in the NY Public Library) (In Grand Central Station) … Well it’s come to an end. I’ve squeezed the life out of New York! I’ve loved every moment of it. I’m ready to go home though. I love Australia and I love Wagga AND I can’t wait to see my boys. IContinue reading →

We spent the day wandering

We spent the day wandering the streets of Manhattan. Hubby and I walked for hours and hours taking it all in. It’s our last full day and we wanted to make the most of it. I’m sad it’s all coming to an end… You want your shoes shined? Sit right up there! A street vendorContinue reading →

Central Park Conspiracy Theory

Central Park Conspiracy Theory

Today I walked about 1.5km to The Highline. Amazing! It stretches 1.7km and was old railway lines above the city for freight trains. It’s since been handed to the people of New York and a body corporate looks after it. Anyway, google it if you’re wanting to learn more. It was so cool. Got toContinue reading →

Shopping and eating in NY

There is a never ending amount of shops and food places here in New York. I have eaten more than I care to remember. It’s Summer here and there’s nothing like putting on a skirt from your own wardrobe to realise it’s not fitting very well haha. Oops. I’ve been walking kilometres and kilometres everyContinue reading →

The BlogHer conference is over. I loved every second of it. I really hope I can come back next year. It’s in Chicago for 2013. I’ve learned lots and you will see some additions and changes on how I blog in the coming months (I have so man ideas!). I’ll do a wrap up postContinue reading →

The people you see in New York

The people you see in New York

You all know I’m in New York for a blog conference thanks to Kidspot don’t you? Ha! I forgot for a while what I was actually here for. This city has consumed me in so many ways. It’s better than I imagined. I am enjoying it so much. But today I had some serious stuffContinue reading →

World Trade, The Empire State, Obama and falling asleep…

Poser! Check me out! Yesterday we went to the top of the Rockafella Centre to see the 360 degree views of the city. Amazing! No words. I still can’t believe I’m here. I may have gone here… We went to Ground Zero too. This was beautiful and scary at the same time. It’s so hardContinue reading →

We made it to New York!

We’re here! Yay! I’m bursting with excitement. So much to see and do. The flight was great. We watched movies and ate the whole time. I dozed a little bit, but it was hard to sleep. As soon as we landed I couldn’t wait to get my camera out. Look we’re on the wrong sideContinue reading →

So I’m off to New York in the morning. We’re heading to Sydney at an ungodly hour! My husband has clocked off work. My Mum is here. 3 spreadsheets, 2 pages of notes and 4 phone numbers… we’ve been over everything. I’ve had a spray tan, had my nails done, packed the bags, cleaned theContinue reading →
