I'm Down With NYC

Hey New Jersey, I'm baaaaaack!  After not being home for almost a year, it feels great to be back for a visit.  The hubs and I drove down yesterday morning, dropped the kids off at grandma's, and headed into the city for dinner and a show.  My best friend and her husband live in Midtown, so we met them at Lime Jungle for some mexican and $5 'ritas and then headed to the Nederlander Theatre for Newsies!

I'm not going to lie, I was super excited.  I probably watched Newsies 6,000 times as a kid.  This is back when I was in love with Christian Bale (who's kidding who? I still am) and had delusions about being a broadway star despite the fact that I'm tone deaf (ok that might still be true too).  Needless to say, I've been looking forward to this show (and having a babysitter!) for weeks.  After trying on ten different outfits this is what I decided on:

H&M top, a.n.a pants via JC Penney, Kate Spade bag, Michael Kors watch,
J.Crew necklace, Forever 21 sunglasses, Nine West shoes
Arm Party:  Jewelry by Lindsay, vintage,  J.Crew

Here I am.
Starting to get awkward.
Things have officially broken down.  This is my Broadway pose.
And we're walking...

The show far exceeded my expectations.  I loved every second.  And after twenty years, I'm still in love with Jack Kelly and still get heart pangs watching the actors on stage.  Seeing their joy during curtain calls just made me ache for that adrenaline rush.  I think being a performer is in your blood.  It's definitely in mine and I need to find a way back to the stage.  Maybe in five years when Cooper is in kindergarten...but that's another story for another day.

Here's some more pictures from the evening:

Intermission with the hubs.
Sometimes I wear glasses.  (Usually when I want to see stuff).
Sometimes I take them off for photos so I can look pretty for instagram...and facebook...
and twitter... and my blog... and just in case anyone pins it...

All in all it was a great night spent doing what I love with people I love.  Win.  Win.  

What did you do this weekend?  Hope it was fabulous!

I've got brunch tomorrow with the girlies!  Can't wait!
