Joey Kola the warm up guy was really what made it a lot of fun. When he came down let us know what the show was going to be about, give us some directions and warm us up, he actually gave me the first 1, 2, 3 giveaways...bottles of water. Of course the giveaways at the show were great too, but books are very heavy to carry around NYC.
Restaurant Week. A gourmet lunch with cocktails, and dessert. After lunch we strolled the streets of NY some more. Stoping in Saks 5th Ave and trying on some very ugly but very expensive hats, laughing the whole time. We had the best time together that we lost track of time on our way back to the train station. We had to run the last few blocks to Penn Station so we wouldn't miss the train. Talk about making it to the station on time.
I arrived home to find a happy ending to my already wonderful day. My kids, mother and husband made me a welcome home sign, complete with a drawing of Lynn and I and a Martha Stewart Sign. It was so cute. In all my excitement I didn't realize how excited they were for me.
