Jet Setter

I feel like such a jet setter. A few days in Boston and then straight to New York.

I've never experienced getting yelled at by a cab driver until Boston. It was kinda weird. And I never knew I can get sick of lobster. I have to say though, the buildings in Boston are beautiful.

The How Conference really wasn't what I expected. I have mixed feelings about it. I am very grateful that work sent me, but I think I set my expectations too high. I should of scheduled more fun sessions, instead of trying to cram in as much CSS training as I can. I also felt like some of the presenters weren't as prepared as they should of been. The resource center was totally awesome though. I actually got my pack and ship box today. So I guess the best part of the conference was the Veer guys and the resource center. Still, it was a great time.

And then there is New York.

I always have fun when I go there. I didn't do as much shopping as I really wanted to, but M did come home with a whole new wardrobe. I did get myself a little souvenir...New York City in a bag from MUJI.

Also spent a day in the country. R has a little house in Catskill that had an awesome view of the Hudson River. It was really breath taking.

Did I mention we even made to to New Jersey. M and I went to an old friends wedding. We had to beg a cab driver to get us over there after another cab driver kicked us out of his cab when we mentioned New Jersey. LOL

The view from the hotel was amazing. And we had a great time hanging out with old friends and making new one. A toast to table number 7.

I think my favorite was visiting the Brooklyn Museum to see the Murakami. It was a great exhibit. Floor to ceiling paintings and rooms papered with fun patterns. This little guy was my favorite.

I also got myself I new travel buddy. Maybe he can be my new jet setting partner. Hopefully he'll be able to visit a few more places this year. Meet Ibbs.

Its good to be home, and to be with the girls again. Its really hard to be away from them for so long. Maybe one day we'll take them on a road trip with us.

Whew... that was a long one.
