"Feels like I'm in Grand Central Sta-tion" - Beyonce

So, I went to New York this past week...for 9 days. That's right - 9 whole days. Like I said before, this was the first time I had traveled back since I left over a year ago. I was both excited and apprehensive at the thought of going back to my old stomping ground. A lot of change happened while I lived there and a lot has happened since I left – all good things. It should come as no surprise that my bag came in just under 50 lbs, and that was before I left. I’m not proud...I never am.

Anyway, my hosts were absolutely wonderful – letting me come and go as I pleased. I forget what it is like to live in a vacation destination. For all of the fun it brings, it also comes with a few added inconveniences when you’re dealing with a 20-something and her loaded rolling bag. NYC ordered the perfect weather for my vacation and I’d like to think that I returned the favor in food consumption and general merriment. Let it be said that I took more pictures in this trip alone than I probably took in the entire time I lived there*. Even better news, I’m going to throw some at you today.

You had to know these were coming. I tried to condense and even still, this is what I came up with...

Breakdown: wedded bliss, random City pics, day Yankees game, The Oprah Show, the cutest dog (in a bag) on the street, U-s-h-e-r, rooftop party, Bleecker street flea market, and Carrie's apartment from S&TC.

*In my defense, how many times in your life do you get to attend a live Oprah show? Every illegal picture was worth it.
