New York New York!

Who's going to New York this weekend?
Oh, that would be meeeeee!
My darling darling has gotten me a plane ticket to visit my best friend as an early birthday present. We always try and spend the weekend together for my birthday in NYC - this will be a weekend early, but no less fantastic. My aunt will get back from the country on Sunday and we'll have dinner, so I'll get to see her too. Yay!
Charlie will be staying to have a man weekend with A and our friend K who is coming to town to help him study.

I may not have kids, but I have a terrific husband.

EDIT:
AND! I dyed my hair dark brown.Charlie likes it.

AND! Even cooler!
I got a package from Kara today!It is yummy! Two fantastic looking wines two fancy kinds of almonds, and chhhhhheeeeese sticks! A was also very impressed and seemed to think if Kara was single he should leave me for her. Silly terrific husband.

  14. Awesome, enjoy your trip. Nice box of goodies ya got there.

  15. Ooh! It must be goodie week! Looks good!

    NY is only 2 hours from me, hint, hint... Not that philly compares at all though. NY really does have us beat. I am a native new yorker though- so I may just be biased!

    I like the hair, but I miss the red a bit- I am partial to fiery red hair & it seems to suit you ;o)

  16. I love New York City and I envy you!!!! I know you will have a great time. YAY for A for being so nice. (Happy early birthday!)

    Love the new color. I am afraid to color my hair because I am sooo lazy, I would never keep it up. (No highlights or even fake finger nails for the same reason.)

  17. I'm so excited that you are going to NYC. Please, please, please with cherries and LOTS of fat free cool whip smooch Anthony Bourdain if you see him for me :-)

    YAY - you recieved the goodies and everything arrived in one piece. Did I bubble wrap the hell out of that thing or what?

    Can't wait for the full NYC update
