    Have fun in my city!!! I think figs go well on sandwiches that you eat right away, otherwise they do start to take on that gaggy texture. Lesson learned 🙂

    Welcome to the city! You should definitely go to the semi-secret froyo shop at Bloomingdale’s (7th floor). Their peanut butter and plain flavors are the BEST I’ve ever had. Plus portions are huge!

    My first trip with my now-husband was to NYC too! I’m also heading up there this weeknd — this time with friends. I wish I could meet you all for fro-yo, but I don’t think it’s in the cards! 🙁

    Flying seems to get more expensive lately but you are getting less and less out of it!
    Can’t wait to get some pumpkin spice coffee/tea from Starbucks ASAP, so fall like and comforting!

    Looks like it’s going to be a great trip! You’re right about wifi and flying….once you have it, you want it on every flight!

    Have fun in new york!! It’s awesome that you and Derek got a second chance!

    You can tell that you have grown up as a person since 2006 and become more comfortable in your own skin. You look gorgeous! That’s totally inspiring!

    I was just thinking I needed a coffee or tea- and then you mention a ‘grande non-fat awake tea latte with one pump of pumpkin spice’! Of course I ran out and got one, and it was so good! Now I have to stop myself from ordering one of those every day. It’s going to be tough.

    I’m highly amused that my eye immediately went to the GT plate in the photo of Derek on the couch. Go Jackets!!!

    It’s almost impossible not have fun – or at least be very, very entertained – in NYC. Hard to believe I haven’t been in my home city in over a year!
    Enjoy your trip!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    I like Awake tea (but never had the latte)…and I like Pumpkin Spice Lattes… I didn’t know you could (or ever think to) combine tea + a flavor shot. Iiinteresting…

    We just flew on Continental a couple weeks ago (we belong to their One Pass program for the whole 1-2 times a year we fly… at my slow rate, I am soon to earn a free domestic flight – it’s only been 4 years!) We were initially assigned the last row (right in front of the bathroom). Which I didn’t think twice about, but my husband – at 6′ – said heeeck no and moved us. He found us an exit row with only 2 seats – nice!

    Glad to hear your plans were not impacted by Earl — our St Martin vacation ended and we came back to NJ last Friday, right before Earl swept through the Caribbean on Sunday/Monday!
