Exciting News to Share!

For me, this is exciting.  For others, maybe not.  But, you have to know my husband to understand my excitement.  My husband doesn't like to go anywhere.  He loves his couch, his TV and hanging out at home.  So, when he called me from work a couple of weeks ago telling me he won Employee of the Year, I thought that was great news until he told me that we would be going to New York City---all expenses paid!  I couldn't believe it!  Plus, he's getting a bonus--a substantial one at that!  This is a man who doesn't like to travel and he's just as excited as I am!  I haven't been to NYC since I was 15!  And we still laugh wondering how he got Employee of the Year.  My husband isn't exactly 'Mr. Personality" when he's at work---but, he knows his job and is an excellent worker. 

We fly out from Portland, Maine on Friday morning April 8th and return on April 10th.  We're staying at the Michelangelo Hotel (very, very nice) and will arrive there from the airport in a limo.  Our first evening there, we'll be going to dinner at the Harvard Club and I have to dress semi-formal.  La-dee-da!

 Before dinner, my husband and I will have our portrait taken.  From there it's the Awards Dinner.  Once dinner is over, we'll be going to the top of the Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock)--70 stories high!  Did I tell you that I don't like heights--even in buildings?!

Saturday we have a choice of different tours----we chose the "Bite of the Big Apple" tour and the "NBC Studio Tour".  We also will have free time for shopping.  Saturday night we're having dinner at the famous Palm Restaurant.  I plan on getting the 6 pound lobster! 

After dinner we're going to a Broadway show to see the "Jersey Boys".   Then Sunday we check out.  I'm not sure when our flight is as we're not coordinating it--someone from the company is.  I'm hoping that we'll be there for awhile on Sunday as well so I can see more of the sights. 

So, I'm excited.  I plan on taking lots of pictures and will make a mini of my adventure. 

Wishing you a wonderfuly day!
