Spring in New York

And I don't mean the "new York". I mean the Big Apple. The city.

Took my last airplane trip (at least for awhile) to New York City. I went with my best friend Ali, who just so happens to have a very cool sister who works as an assistant costume designer on broadway. Ah, it's good to have connections.

Anyway we enjoyed central park, Brooklyn's botanical garden, Times Square, shopping and the highlight: 2 broadway shows including the opening night of American Idiot by Green Day. Of course it was a big-to-do and a handful of celebrities were there: Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, Rosie O'Donnell, Edward Norton, of course the band Green Day among some others. I only saw them from a distance, mostly because I'm too shy to approach them. Oh well.
We partied into the night (2am, not bad for a pregnant woman!) and enjoyed all the free food at the after party.

I have to admit that I was a little intimidated by New York before going there. It just seemed SO famous and so daunting, that I would never feel quite comfortable. Nevertheless, it was great! I heart NY! Truth be told, I think I might just be a city girl. If that's even news to anyone.

Amazing fabric stores: floor to ceiling of every kind of fabric and related material you could possibly imagine.

First time to NY? Gotta go to the Empire State Building, right?

Michael & Sarah's wedding

Nate's youngest brother, Michael got married Easter weekend. Youngest in that he came about 3 minutes after his older twin brother. Anyway, now everyone in the York family is married. 4 sets of Mr. and Mrs. York. Whew! It is finished. Beautiful wedding, great people, fun was had by all. Congratulations Michael and Sarah!

Nathan and his other 2 brothers, Ryan and Allen in the bridal party. Love how they all held their hands the same way, with their left hand on top so that their wedding bands show.
