{NYC} Day 4

Thursday morning we woke up bright and early, and made our way to the Today Show! We got there a little after 7 and there was already a crowd. Also it was freezing that morning, yes freezing!! It was cold and super windy and I couldn't keep my eyes from watering and we were shaking to death! Crazy weather for mid-July!!
Before you can enter the area designated for the audience to be in, you had to register, and then they had a sign station! So we made one...mainly for the boys! The intern took this picture of us!

The set-up...the main part is way down there where the pink sign is!

We were worried that we wouldn't be on TV, or see any of the anchors..but we were wrong about both! Al did a walk around of the whole perimeter and we both got to shake his hand!

Filming a segment!

This pic was from my sister who taped the show for us!! 

After we got on TV we stayed a little longer then decided to was too cold!
Next up was Top of the Rock. It's an observation deck at the top of Rockefeller Center. I read a lot on this vs. the Empire State Building...and even though they are both great, a lot of people said this one because you get views of the Empire State Building too! See we choose Top of the Rock! (Since we went, the observation deck on top of the Freedom Tower has opened too!)
Seriously stunning views....

If you look closely you can see where the ball drops in Times Square!

Our (expensive) souvenir photo!

After we came down, we grabbed some coffee to warm us up and sat for a few to people watch....

A little selfie fun while Paul was on the phone!

Next up we headed down to the Meatpacking District to walk the High Line. This was another popular recommendation on blogs I read when doing research.  The High Line is a revitalized urban park on top of an old railroad! It was so neat and the architecture is very modern and clean...they have all sort of food vendors, music, and more! 

We grabbed empanadas and street tacos for lunch there! YUM!

Once done, we headed over to Soho! Two things I wanted to do there....Georgetown Cupcakes and to visit the Birchbox shop!!  Both did not disappoint!

I bought some goodies here....

 and we ate some goodies here!!!

These babies were soooo good!

On our way back to the subway I spotted Dean & Deluca....any true fan of Felicity would be excited!!

After that it was back to the hotel for a little bit to rest and get ready for our night! We had tickets to see Wicked and I was SO excited!! First though we grabbed dinner at a very yummy mexican restaurant. Have I mentioned yet that that day, Thursday, was our actual TEN year anniversary!!! So so grateful to be married to this amazing, handsome man!!!

 The restaurant was right next door to the Gershwin Theatre!

Wicked was so good!! Even Paul enjoyed it! After our play, we walked back over to Times Square to hit it up at night!! And man it was definitely crazy at night!! FULL of people, and even though the pics don't show it, it was so bright outside, almost like it wasn't dark! I just took it all in!

So pretty!!

Times Square selfie!!

This day was my favorite day of our trip!! It was a perfect anniversary day and I wouldn't have traded it for anything!!
