Coach and I at Farm Aid 9-09-2007 NYC
I love this shirt he is wearing: “I’m looking forward to regretting this”
Now, I have to preface this favorite N word….I really am not a big fan of NYC. I know, lots of folks LOVE this place, not me.
( you don’t have to tell me how wrong I am…it won’t work and BTW: my favorite CITY is: Chicago. Yeah, there, I said it!)
I have more cons than pros….
(1) IT is loud…the car horn honking alone makes me want to hurt someone.
(3)Loud. Yeah, the loud part really annoys me.
Coach has surprised me with not ONE, but two trips here for birthdays.
Plus a trip in between for my Cuz’s West Point Graduation/family trip.
First was for my 35th. He booked the flights, the hotel and dinners without me knowing. SURPRISE!!!
We had a short, but wonderful weekend in the city. He splurged and got us a room at the Four Seasons…upon arrival a bottle of my favorite wine was waiting and one of those ever elusive BLUE boxed gifts……Yes, from Tiffany.
I think he said something to the fact of…”every girl needs at least ONE gift from Tiffany’s”
Yeah…and where did you learn this???? BUT I DO agree!!!
For my 40th Birthday, after I was told that all my friends were too busy to get together, Coach decided that we ALONE would go away and celebrate.
Yeah, I should have known better…
He had 7 of our closest friends surprise me for a long weekend in NYC.
I was flabbergasted. And yes, that is hard to do. The trip had been strategically planned for weeks and I had NO clue. NONE. He did not even tell me where we were going until the night before we left.
Dessert at the Mandarin Oriental
The weekend was full of limos, ROSES, fine wine, good food, lots of laughs and a great concert featuring MY favorite performer Dave Matthews with Farm Aid. Coach does it big, or he does not do it all…we had VIP seats at Farm Aid….I think I still have that vile of sweat from John Mellencamp somewhere….
We had such a great time….
what is the limit of people in ONE limo???
oh, I wish I could freeze those days and relive them over and over.
The nine of us trying to purchase subway tickets alone was a comedy….you should have seen us ALL trying to fit in before the doors closed. TOO FUNNY.
Enjoying the concert…it was SOO much fun.
When do I get to have my NEXT surprise 40th??? HMMMM??????
