my mom's visit!

Wow!  So much happened in the month of October!  I'm already using past tense, because my mind will explode if I try to cram any more events in this mental file.  One of the most fun happenings of October 2009 was the much anticipated arrival of my mom!!  She and her 2 sisters stayed with me over Columbus Day wekend.  Yes, we all 4 stayed in my "cozy" apartment.  It really wasn't half bad.  My mom and I snuggled in my twin bed and my aunts shared the sectional couch.  I think the fact that they are all super-organized didn't hurt much, either.  Anyway- we had a blast!  I always love getting to hang out with my mom, but getting to see her interact with her sisters was priceless!  Here's a very small peek into the craziness that we packed into 3 days!

Mom's finally here!!


No time to lose- off to a Broadway show!

"The Hill" -they hated it.  REALLY hated it.

Central Park


So sweet- my mom let me use her teacher discount at the Apple store to buy a new computer!

(isn't it fabulous?  i'm 25...who needs a savings account?)

Rockefeller Plaza- Isn't my mom beautiful?

The Statue of Liberty...again.

The South Street Seaport


The New York Food & Wine Festival- they saw Alton Brown! PLUS, we ALL met Bobby Flay!!

We walked all over lower Manhattan

Finally...if you know my mother- you won't be surprised- there were sweets the WHOLE time...lots and lots of sweets!

Mom- hurry back!  I miss you already!!!
