Live from New York City!.....

In the heart of Rockfeller Center!! That's where we are staying around the corner from Radio City Music hall and a few blocks North of Times Square. Incredible time we are having! Being typical tourists. Love it... We've done the double decker bus tour that showed us the sights of the city...Battery Park, Brooklyn to Harlem even. We've taking in shopping...from bargaining with shady people in corners of chinatown for fake designer goods (right before under cover cops pull up in vans to haul their fake goods and them away) to shopping on fifth avenue for the real goods. I am the luckiest wifey around.. Brett surprised me by buying me a souveneir (sp?) from Tiffany and Co. It was a part of my birthday present (as if this trip wasn't enough) and he wanted me to have something to take home and remember this trip. Such an AWESOME hubbie I am married to! What girl doesn't love Tiffany's? The rest of our time spent on fifth ave was enjoyed by people watching, window shopping, ohhhing and ahhhing. The United Nations assembly was here when we first got here and the different country big shot leaders were hanging out all around us. Our street the hotel is on was closed off here and there for secret service and we've been tickled by watching them all over the city escorting who knows who around... We even cruised by the Waldorf Astoria where the President was. The secret service, guys with machine guns and K9 dogs didn't want to extend my invite for Mr. President to eat dim sum with us in Chinatown! It's crazy to see how buckled down security is around these leaders... I do appreciate the big SUV's that they are escorted in having the country flag and name on it though....helps me know who I am looking for! Anyway..so that has been part of our entertainment. I am beat from walking everywhere...but can't wait to get up and do it again today! We're being fed well... Still have to make it to Little Italy like every has recommended. Plan for today- CELEBRATE my wonderful husbands birthday!!!!! Happy Birthday Brett!!!!!! The day is his...I am sure he's exhausted himself from escorting me around shopping (I won't be able to get him to shop at Target with me anymore when we go home) We are braving the subway this afternoon to head to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium and then I am certain we will find some sports bar to sit at and take in Sunday football. Preferably one with NFL ticket. Perfect day for him if you ask me! That's all I got for now, but more stories of great times had to share with you all when we return to the desert!
