Quick trip || NYC

 One of the reasons we timed my moms visit when we did is because Keith and I had a quick little trip to NYC planned.  I don't talk much about working or my job on this blog but I am blessed with a great job for a great company.  We have a contest every year and the best of the best are awarded with a trip and a few other perks.  I was fortunate enough to win this year -- so did my dad, who also works for the same company.  So an extra bonus! 

This years trip was to NYC.  Trip was all paid for, along with some spending $ and a few other sweet surprises!  Most of the pictures below were taken with my phone -- it was just easier.

Friday morning we headed to our company headquarters in New Jersey and heard a very inspirational speech by Jim Abbott and from the senior leaders in our company.

The below pics were taken with my dslr when we did a little walking around Friday afternoon.

First stop we made in the big city -- we had to pick the boys up a souvenir. 
 Not that they needed any more toys! ;)

One of the highlights was getting to see one of my best friends and my college roomie, Ashley.  I haven't seen Ashley in over 2 years.  Crazy how busy life gets.  But we just picked right back up - we're awesome like that. ;)  And I also got to spend some time with Paige (pics below), who I've known since like 1st grade -- she's one of my oldest and dearest friends!  And seen me through some pretty bad haircuts. Ha. ;)

Formal night....being awarded.

We spent all day Saturday with Ash, Tony and Paige.  We met them for brunch and then walked to Ash's apartment and just hung out all day.  It was seriously one of the most fun days I've had in a long time! The pics below are of the view from Ash's apartment -- WHAT?!  Crazy nice!

We saw Jersey Boys Saturday night and it was SO good!  My company also had a few "Tiffany" gifts that we got to choose something from.  I went with the wallet.  SO nice!

It was a nice little trip.  We had a blast hanging out with my dad and Kathy and I felt honored to be a "champion"  for my company.  But the best part of any trip is coming home.  I was so happy to get back to my boys!  A big thanks to my mom for keeping them.  They had a blast too!
