With apologies to John Denver

My bags are packed, I'm ready to go.


I'm leaving on a jet plane.

This blog is officially on Spring Break, and headed to New York City. Yep, this Southern girl is heading to the Big Apple and will try to cram as much as possible into the 120 hours I'll be north of the Mason-Dixon (cause you know they might not let me visit again!).

I want to go here.


Ellis Island Museum

And of course, we have to stop here.


American Museum of Natural History

And I have to see this.


Ground Zero
Who could pass up a parade? I mean aren't we all a little Irish on St Patrick's day?

The young un wants to stay in the hotel all week, but maybe the promise of a trip here would help convince him to leave the room.


Toys R Us Times Square

Or maybe a flat out bribe from here.


Dylan's Candy Bar

How amazing would it be to have lunch here.

Followed by a sweet treat here.
 src=Magnolia Bakery= yummy cupcakes

Which I'll probably have to walk off here.


Brooklyn Bridge

That's just a little preview of the next week. I'll be sure to post our adventures in the big city as whenever I find wi fi and convince the Mr. that I do know how to operate the mactop. In the meantime, I guess we'll always have Twitter :)

Spring Break here we come!

Have a great time. I fell in love with NYC when I was a kid and lived 30 minutes outside of Manhattan. SO much to see and do!

What about FAO Schwartz? Is it still around? I've never been, but would think it would be magnificent to see!

Heck, all of NYC would be magnificent to see!

Have a wonderful time, take lots and lots of photos and for the love of God, be safe!!!
