March 27th


I’m packed and leaving for a long weekend in NYC. Theater, long meals, dancing until the wee hours of the morning, walking, walking and more walking.

You know.

(Do you know? Because I don’t. I’m trying to play it cool, while my suitcase with approximately 35 different outfit options screams otherwise. Be cool, Donley. Be cool.)

I’ve had one previous trip to NYC which was really only 8 hours wandering in the city by myself. The rest of my Big Apple knowledge comes from television and film. As such, I anticipate finding my soulmate at Serendipity. Getting mugged for my Louboutins. And seeing a giant marshmallow man near the Empire State, which may or may not also have a huge gorilla hanging off the top.

All bound to happen. Right?


The good news: my good camera is packed. My shenanigans will be recorded. It will be a weekend to remember.

  6. Oh I love me some NYC!!! My parents are from there and I used to go up there yearly to do inner city ministry and service projects, but it has been a while since I was there. Hubs has never been to the city – I’m hoping it can happen in the next few years – I love it there! Have fun! And no matter what you think you have to experience, I promise you that you do NOT want to eat a street hot dog. Trust me. Just don’t do it – most locals won’t. 🙂

  7. Good to know about the street hot dogs – I can’t believe Liz Lemon would lead me astray! I know nothing about New York, but if it were me I’d probably be trying to get myself to Purl Soho if at all possible.

  8. How much I envy you right now…..
