Just got back home from our anniversary trip. We had a blast. We ended up staying at the Marriot Marquis Times Square (which was literally across from the theater). Saturday morning we wandered up and down 5th avenue and ended up spending two hours in Saks. P got two shirts, we got A a cute dress, bought perfume for both moms for mothers day and I got these shoes . I'm still a little shocked about the purchase (especially since they cost more than my wedding dress). I don't think my heart or stomach (or bank account) could take buying these on a regular basis, but my god are they comfortable (and cute!). I've always wanted a pair of designer shoes.

Sat night we went to dinner, bought a round a drinks for 5 cute military girls on leave and having a night out. Then we headed to see the Addams Family with Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth. The show was fabulous. I really can't remember the last time I laughed so hard at a show (I couldn't breathe at some points). Two sections of dialog that stand out (approximations because I'm not sure I remembered them verbatim:

This house has been in our family since my ancestor Alfonso D'Enormous was deeded the land by Queen Isabella for services rendered.

Who's the man in the dress? That's Aunt Herman. He's Wednesday's uncle twice removed. They removed it once and it grew back, so they removed it again.

I pre-ordered the soundtrack (it won't be available until June 8). I have to say, despite having her hips replaced a few years ago, Bebe Neuwirth still has it. I'm in awe of how good she looked and how well she dances.

Best Anniversary so far.

I'm continuing my pattern of posting about my vacation with a daily update.

I've decided to basically do a summary post at the end of each day for my trip here.

Full Day 2 )

We landed yesterday about 9:45 pm local time (aka 3:45 home time). We got our luggage and then headed to get the shuttle to take us to the car rental place. And that's when things started to go a little downhill and I got very cranky from doing too much on too little sleep (see post below for why I was seriously sleep deprived).
