New York..New York..Is it everything they say?
Well….It looks as though we are going to be able to pull this New York for Christmas thing off afterall woot.
We calculated that with gas (15 hour drive) 3 nights hotel, a Broadway show, meals including one very fancy New York style dinner in a high chic restaurant (Dave used to be a chef, loves loves good fine dinning) that we are going to need 1500$. We have 500$ saved now that we would have spent on Xmas shopping any normal year, and our parents offered to gift us cash this year so we could go, so if we get 500$ from either side of the family then we have have enough, even if we fall a bit short, were going because our souls and hearts need an escape from everything this Christmas, we just need to be alone, just us, remembering our Evan. Well we will bring Oliver along for the ride as well of course. I am excited at the prospect of walking through Central Park with Oliver, and going to see Chicago on Broadway. (We already saw everything else playing, as we were avid theatre goer’s in Toronto and saw Wicked 2x cause I love it that much,) After watching so much How I Met Your Mother-I have had New York on the brain and craving it..
We hope to arrive on the evening of the 23rd or 24th and stay 3 nights. Maria, this mean we HAVE to meet up, how many times in life will we get this opportunity. How far do you live drive wise from central Manh? We will have our car so we could always drive to you if needs be.
So now is when anyone who has spent time in NY give’s me hints and tips..We are looking for a pet friendly hotel in a central location, I have a couple bookmarked and they are pricy like 200$ a freaking night, but the one I want is right in Soho which is important so we can walk everywhere we need to be. Plus that one is not only pet friendly they delight in having pet’s and the bellboys carry dog treats 🙂 Oh I also want the Cosmopolitan but I am not sure they accept pets.
For such a bratty little puppy I sure do love him haha. He is in his kennel right now, cause I was trying to nap and woke up to catch him in the act of chewing my wooden African trunk, he already chewed the crap out of the corner of it last week and made me cry as I love it, but this time I caught him in the act, so he knows what he was doing wrong. I have him baby gated in with me at all times, that’s not enough, I can’t get distracted for even a minute, or he is into something he shouldn’t be. I tried to puppy proof the place, but I can’t move furniture off the ground. Geesh. Also his bathroom training has gone right out the window since the move, he pee’s inside at least 2x a day where he was fully trained at the old place. Frustrating….I am gonna get signed up for Dog school so we can both learn how to better do this training thing.
