My role model (mom) turns 88....

WooHoo.  She's turning 88 and I can hardly keep up with her!  My mom and I are spending a weekend in NYC to celebrate Mom's Day, her birthday and all other happy occasions we can come up with. 

We arrived Thursday afternoon.  My hotel of choice went over the top this time - PENTHOUSE - 2 BEDROOM SUITE upgrade. 

If that isn't enough, we arrived at the suite to find a veggie platter, cheese platter, 3 platters of SWEETS and a bottle of champagne.  How cool is this?!  Mind you, my mom is wondering how did I pull this off and perhaps I'm a secret Rock Star or something.  Nope none of that, just fortunate to have nice the hotel biz!

Our first evening we attended a charity dinner and theater - The Addams Family with Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth.  It was entertaining enough and just looking at Nathan Lane's face keeps me laughing.  Today we have a full day planned - workout, lunch, museum, dinner & theater again with friends. Tomorrow is another full day - workout (every day of course - mom's a fan of the tmill and bike!), outdoor art/craft show, more museums and dinner @ a veggie restaurant I hear is fabulous.  Short day on Sunday of working out, lunch and home. 

The weather is spectacular.  Hear it's even forecasted to reach the 80's tomorrow.  No matter, it won't get in our way.  We are two girls on a mission to have a great time in NYC!  Like mother, like daughter!!!!!


  1. Wow, that's awesome!! Happy birthday to your mom, you ladies have fun!!

  2. What a great trip! I hope you have an incredible time.

    Don't tease us; we know you are a superstar!
