The Housewife Crashes NYC!

So to say that I've had a busy summer so far would be an understatement....

Both kids are in swimming lessons right now, Jack just started tae kwon do and The Wolf Pack was here last weekend for a visit...while I'm trying to keep up with The Hubs, work, cooking, cleaning and everything that comes with being a housewife.

Is it time for school to start yet?

No really, I'm having a pretty kick ass summer -- no complaints from me.

While The Wolf Pack was here, we decided to hop on the train and spend a quick night in New York City (since two of us had never been there before, including me). By the time we were headed home Sunday evening, we were moderately hungover, exhausted with very sore feet and had a ton of pictures on our cameras.

So thanks for everyone for hanging in there with me! School starts back up in September and then I'll have more time to blog (and I'm really looking forward to that -- for the reals!).

BTW, this is my new favorite song for summer. There's something about Katy Perry that bugs the crap out of me (I can't figure out what) but I can't resist her bubble gum, sugary pop music. Loves! Enjoy the song (see if you can catch all the cameos in the video) and try not to laugh at my NY pictures!

This was the view from our hotel room at The Strand. Very nice place and I would totally stay here again!

The Strand also had a rooftop bar with an incredible view of the Empire State Building. It was even better after dark.

Times Square, bitches! There were SO many people here. The energy of this place was overwhelming, but in a good way. I wish I could put it in a jar and take it home!

Central Park. Once of my favorite parts of the trip.

High browin' it with martinis at The Plaza. I'm a classy chick, even in places like this...(those coasters were leather. Leather, I tell you!)

Rockafeller Center and I had to stop by my employer's main office -- the NBC tower.

Grand Central Station...where's the flash mob when you need one? I almost started singing "do-a-dear" at the top of my lungs but then I decided I didn't want to get arrested....

The Wolf Pack at dinner. The food was just so-so but we had a good time. Wine pairings always make the night more fun heehee!

And you can see that the wine was starting to affect us here....

And even more here at the roof-top bar after dinner...but daym, we look hot, right? All that anti-wrinkle cream I'm using is paying off. It doesn't hurt that I've got a cute wolf lady beside me, either.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. As I said, you'll start seeing more of me come September, in full sass-mode -- whether you like it or not!

Speaking of Katy Perry's song, I seriously need to shoot you an email about an event in Philly next week :)

Glad you had fun in NYC!

Looks like you had a ball! I had a girls weekend in Dallas and that KP song was on our getting ready playlist for sure!
