Went off to NYC again.

Saturday I went to NYC again.  I really enjoy it as does my family.  This time we went to see Phantom of the Opera, which is a childhood dream come true.  As some of you already know my memory is kind of fuzzy when it comes to my childhood.  One thing I remember is being a child and looking through the Phantom of the Opera program my mother brought home when she saw it.  She would take it away and tell me that it wasn't for me to look at.  I would always end up finding it again.  It came around here a couple years ago and I wanted to see it but it didn't work out, so when Dad suggested we bring Mom for her birthday.  I was on it.  We watched the movie the week before and the build up to the day was driving me crazy.  I was beyond happy to see it finally and it was AWESOME!!! I enjoyed every minute some parts were slower, but over all it was great.  I wanted to get the CD but they wanted $50 insane!!!  I'm going to wait and find it here locally for probably $20. 

The rest of the day was fun we went to the NBC experience which was neat.  We saw where they tape NBC Nightly news, The Jim Fallon Late night show, and Saturday night Live.  I don't think it is something I would go to again, but it was neat to experience once.  Then I made the family walk 30 blocks to go to a stamp store.  The Ink Pad was a cute store and had tons of stamps but it was too much to process and it was too hot really enjoy.  I ended up with one stamp that I wanted.  I'm not sure if I can convince the family to go again.  Probably not.  Oh well. 
Pin It Now!
