Road Trip 2011 – West New York, NJ – Day 30-31

From Connecticut we headed toward NYC, but we never actually ventured into the city proper.  Ben and I have been to NYC numerous times and didn’t really have any desire to venture in… especially driving.  Luckily, however, an old manager from my retail days at Nordstrom in Charlotte (who has since been promoted numerous times and now has a position over many stores in the NE), and her fun sister, were not only at home in West New York, NJ, but they were free to have us as guests for a couple of days!  This might be the worst photo yet of me ever posted on this blog!  But it’s cute of everyone else, so it goes up 🙂

Ben and I considered going into the city to sunbathe at Central Park, but Megan & Caitlin were going to be sunbathing poolside at their friend’s apartment, so we left Ben to some alone time, and I went with the girls shopping and then off to the pool.  I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally be able to enjoy the Summer.  I feel like the past few years I’ve spent the entire Summer being a complete workaholic and missing out on all sorts of simple Summer pleasures and festivities.  Just being able to spend the day by the pool, soaking up some good ol’ Vitamin D, is priceless right now… especially considering these Casper-white legs…

Check out this view from their friend’s apartment… I don’t think I’d ever leave the window if I lived here… no one in NYC gets a view this nice…

After several hours by the pool, we decided to end the night with a fajita dinner party… much fun!  And how perfect was our timing since Megan and her sister were both flying out of the city, to different destinations, at 5am the next morning?  Feeling thankful for this road trip and having many friends across the USA!  Can’t believe it’s already been over a month on the road… the time is just flying!  🙁
