summer ending.... sigh
hope everyone got off to a good start to the week. it's only been around 100 here which is a nice change from over 100 every day.. ha yeah not big difference but you'd be surprised how great the high 90's feels after over 100 all week.
I'm staying indoors mostly this time of year, except for my before dinner bike rides. Instead of going to the gym I"m biking for a half hour or more around okc. I'm going to start back up with my workout here in a few weeks what with school starting back Aug 1st!!! UGHHHH. but it'll be nice to be back on a routine actually. what with getting out of classes at 2:10pm can't really complain, plenty of time to get back to the gym before supper time. ha
I am going to book my trip to NYC at the end of this week. A BIG THANK YOU to Anders and Gregg and the guy who stayed at the apple. I couldn't find the apple, but I found a place on times square called the Hotel which had a 2 room suite for 3 nights at $1300 total... however my sisters say sharing a room with 2 queens will be absolutely fine in which case I might book something at the Edicson or St James.. I like the idea of the best western in Hell's kitchen 'cause I really like that area, but it had rooms with double beds only. I'm not sure if that is the hotel you can see from the High Line or not, but does anyone know what that hotel is near the high line? I'm also getting excited about the shows, I am going to wait to pick what shows a few more months, but right now I'm thinking that War Horse would be something really different what with the puppetry and all, plus my sisters both like horses I guess. I want to see a good song and dance number so probably "Anything Goes" although who knows if Foster will still be in it by Dec.... :( another choice is "follies" with Bernadette Peters? maybe? Wicked or Phantom of course always golden choices (but I've already seen both, wicked in OKC and Phantom in London, hee hee) I noticed another play opening that I'd really really like to try and see a play opening this fall called Relatively Speaking, 3 one acts with some great actors on stage... hmmm but not sure the content etc... Gregg thanks tons for all the options, I WILL shop the Union square. I went to that very Dean and Deluca in soho the last time I was in NYC. yum. although my main destination was uniqlo I'll admit. I really like the idea of finding the candy store. Also I remember quite a few interesting shopping booths at Bryant Park in Dec '09. I'll hit up the blog for more ideas closer to Decemeber... right now I am just getting the hotel/flight done by next weekend, that's my main goal. I got my last three water park checks to put right back onto my credit card for the plane ticket, and the hotel I'll just make a reservation and pay that LATER of course. :) My sisters are so excited asking about the tree and people ice skating at rockefeller center. ha also macy's and the window displays. I'll be watching over them protectively the whole time of course, and reminding them not to just talk to just anybody. we are from the south after all. ha
