new york city

Lance & I decided that the past few months have
been mostly vacation with a little bit of responsibility.
Don't get me wrong, we have been extremely busy!
But between the couple weeks of school we have had:
our wedding, our honeymoon to the Dominican
Republic, Christmas break, a St. George visit,
Merrell cruise to Mexico, and, the latest, a trip
to the Big Apple. What fun we had! Among
other things we:

Saw Mary Poppins on Broadway

Shopped on Canal street (notice my new Dolce
and Gabbana purse. It's real, I promise! :)
I've been putting off getting a new one so I could get
this in New York and I love it! The leather is so
soft and I love the colors too. We also visited the
Young Designers Market. If any of you are going
to New York you should go there! It was so
inspirational to see all these young people with
new and wonderful ideas. It inspired me to be
more creative and to make the best of the
resources I have.

Saw the statue of liberty ( do you see it
so tiny in the back?)

Visited the M&M factory on time square, ate
in little Italy and China town, saw Lance's mission
friend, Suvi, went to the Federal Reserve
Bank where over 180 Billion dollars of gold is
stored, and spent a full day at the Armory Track
& Field where over 200 schools compete in
the largest indoor track meet in the US. Wooh!
That was a lot.

What took the cake of the entire trip, though,
was our visit to Nasdaq. Nasdaq invited New
Balance, the sponsor of the track meet, along with
3 other schools to ring the closing bell for the day.
That's right, Lance was up on the big screen in
time square! What a neat experience. And, as a
little perk for being his wife, I got to tag along in
the studio. We had to go through all the security,
then munched on the complimentary treats
and drinks, then were shuffled into the studio.

All in all, we had a great time in New York (despite the
below zero temperatures). It was so much fun to
spend time with my amazing husband! I have
traveled a lot and been all over the world but
nothing beats traveling with the one you love.
We look forward to lots of travel in the future too :)
