Sweet Baby Cheeses, It's Halloween!

Best quotes from last night....

Phil on divorce: When someone your age dies what's the first thing you want to know. Died of what?  Right?  You want to know it is something that can never happen to you. Well it's the same with divorce. Tell me it was booze, cheating, physical abuse. No problem, I'm a monogamous social drinker and Claire only sleep-hits me.

Gloria on why the saying should be it's a doggie dog world: Who wants to live in a world where dogs eat each other?  Doggie dog world is a beautiful world of little poh-pees.

Claire to Jay on costume selection: You can't just show up with a backwards cap and call yourself Snoop Dogg like you did last year. Jay: I didn't even know who that guy was. Haley turned my hat around and told me to say it. I thought he was a dog detective.

Waiting, but RESTLESS

Well, hello there....it's been too long, internets.  The truth is I have so much to blog about, BUT as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am waiting on a real fancy "blog makeover" and did not want to post until it was all new.  As you can see, I gave in (mainly because the one person who reads this blog gave me crap).  Here are all the things I need to blog about: soccer, a family field trip, NEW YORK, USC football, and the house...and since it's late and I am praying that my new fancy blog will be up tomorrow, I will just give you a few house pictures because that's easy!  ha!

I can not believe how fast this part has gone.  In a matter of weeks, our whole house has been framed and our windows and front door have been set.  It's been unbelievable the changes that have taken place and the big decisions that still have to be made.

I Heart New York

In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York
-Alicia Keys and Jay-Z-

In two weeks, at this very moment, I will be boarding a plan to come home.  Leaving "the city that never sleeps" to come home to "the boys that sometimes sleep".  BUT the four days before this very moment?  I will be galavanting around New York City with my love! 

I actually can not believe that we are going!  It's been a trip we've wanted to take together since we got married -I went years ago with all the girls in my family, and he went in high school.  I am kind of counting this as our 10 year anniversary trip because I know we won't be able to go anywhere for our "big 10" next year after just moving into the new house!  The only things that I KNOW we will do on this trip are:  Empire State Building, NBC Studio Tour, American Museum of Natural History, and a hop-on/hop-off tour of downtown. 

Oh and we got WICKED tickets!  I have wanted to see this show since to started!!!  To say I am excited about this is a gross understatement.  I. can. not. wait.

What we'd love from you are recommendations for restaurants and "must-do's".....Come on, my New York peeps!  Leave a comment helping us make a plan!!!
