Friday Daydreamin': New York

This Friday....I'm dreaming about one of my favorite places on earth. 


When I met iKeith and we started to get serious we talked about his West Point Reunion.  Before I knew it that time was upon us and I happened to be 11 weeks pregnant with Alex.  Luckily, my morning sickness ended right before the trip and I got to buy a bunch of new clothes and shoes because my Colorado outfits were not good enough for New York!

I'm sharing more than one picture today because there was no way to just pick one.  I loved every minute of our trip even though it rained almost the entire time.

I got to see Keith's dorm room, where he studied, where he ate and where he walked in a square when he got in trouble.

So much history in one place and the stone buildings are breathtaking! It kind of reminds me of Hogworts!

Then we spent two days in THE CITY.  We walked and ate and walked and had the most amazing cup of coffee from a little place in Grand Central Station and I saw Mama Mia.

I loved Central Park and wanted to spend the entire day there.

Do you have a favorite vacation picture? Link up with Becca at R We There Yet Mom and tell us all about it!


  1. I have a photo of me in Singapore that will forever be my favorite photo of myself. Mostly because it shows the happy.

    I love New York too. I've been a couple of times, but I would love to go back. It just has this energy that you can't feel other places.

  2. So many memories about NYC today. And West Point looks amazing!!


  3. You and Shawn are both making me want to book a trip to NYC for next weekend. M and I have never been but we talk about going all the time. I think we kinda want to take some friends with us and we're not sure who to ask. Anyway, it looks like you had a great time!

    So he really had to walk in a square? That sounds like torture.

  4. These are fabulous pictures, Connie! What an awesome trip! Those buildings are seriously amazing. How great to get to live in them for awhile! Most dormitories are not nearly that nice! But I guess it is West Point... :o)

  5. Great pictures! I love the pictures of West Point.

    I don't go to the city often, it's not my cup of tea, so I often times feel like a bad New Yorker for not liking it. But whateves. I've got my mountains!!!!

  6. West Point = Hogwarts! That is awesome!!

    I have always wanted to go to NYC! Looks like a fun trip!

    And yay for new clothes! I love getting new clothes then going somewhere to show them off. :D

  7. I love NYC! The energy alone is so exciting! The way you described West Point is really interesting. Love the shots!

  8. Looks like so much fun! I've never been to New York {well, okay I had a layover one time, but that doesn't count}. Those pictures are great, and yay for new clothes! New clothes always make me happy!!!

  9. looks like so much fun, I've never been but always wanted to go!

  10. Awesome!! I was born and raised in upstate new york for 14 years....and I've never been to those places...they look beautiful!
