Girls Trip

Jordan and I are going away. Far, far away. We are having our first annual mommy/oldest daughter get away. As you know I have had a mini breakdown about only having 525,600 minutes left with her at home, so we have decided to take advantage of at least 8640 minutes by traveling to Washington DC to visit Georgetown and American University, then on to New York City (NEW YORK CITY!) for a tour of NYU. We are both so excited to get to go! Thanks to my husband for *allowing* (wink, wink, nod, nod) us to go. Thanks to my parents for helping with the remaining famous five. Thanks to the internet for allowing me to scour every nook and cranny for good deals, cheap flights and an awesome hostel in SoHo. (And no I don't watch horror movies, and I haven't seen the movie Hostel) We came in way under budget thanks to and a super deal from Southwest. We are planning on doing all the usual DC things, as well as a lot of New York things! Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Greenwich Village, Ellis Island... all the touristy things to do. We will be flying back into St Louis just in time for the Hope Reunion!

Yeah for you. I heart NYC. When I was in high school I was going to work for the New York Times :-) Oh well. Hope you guys have a great time. BTW, if you want to hit a broadway show, check out the half price ticket booth for great deals. I forget the exact location but ask anyone and they can tell you. And hostels are a great way to stay cheap. Did that with my mom and brother in NYC.
