And I wonder...

So school must've started because I see uniforms and children flayling around as I walk to the train everyday. It's crazy to think that they take the bus to school in New York City. Can't imagine growing up here...crazy!

In more important news...Chad's jersey will now officially say "Ocho Cinco" on the back. Wow.



Reunited and it feels so good. Here are some pictures from our NKOTB and Neyo experience....

Pizza in the park

So today Heather and I grabbed a slice and went to check out the stage for this afternoon's concert (in celebration of NFL kickoff). Usher, Natasha Beddingfield and Keith Urban are the entertainment with "NBC stars" joining. We hope to see Jim from the Office. Of course it starts at 3:00 pm, so we'll miss most of it, but it'll be fun nonetheless!

Since Columbus Circle was closed off for the concert, we headed around to Central Park, ate our slices and contemplated about living in this really tall building that is birds-eye-view from the park. We could only imagine the view back.

Today show in the morning. Pizza in the park for lunch. NFL kickoff in the somewhat evening....I think I like this City.

A funny thing happened on the way....

So Heather mentions that New Kids on the Block are doing the Today show this morning...nice! We detour from our normal route and go to the show...get right in...and watch the kids do their thang. We could see really good because turns out...KNOTB didn't have a lot of people there. Ne-yo joined "the Kids," making it ever more "on-my-way-to-work awesome!"

We left at NKTOB, but heard Ne-yo singing "Closer" as we walked away. Oh what it is to live in NYC!

Heather took some pics, so they will come soon!



Is that down right sexy or what? (picture below). Let's take a minute to think of what he's singing and how it sounds. Could it be Don't Drink the Water...perhaps the opening tease to Two Step? Oh how my imagination runs free!

You: "Hey Carly.... whatcha doin on Wednesday, September 10th? "

Me: "Oh I don't know...going to work...may grab a coffee...eat some lunch...check how the Manhattan Mamas are doing....go see Dave Matthews (i.e. my husband) at the Garden."

Freakin Ah!! My life just got 50 times better! If he sings Dancing Nancies...oh if he sings it!!! And at Madison Square Garden? Oh to be naive with my money!

By the way...Julia Roberts is hosting it and all the money goes to charity. Yes....that is why I paid entirely too much (and made Roomie do the same) for only 200-level seats.....yes.....


I'm just sayin, Harry Potter wants to wear a dress and Rachel Dratch does. Could they be pulling a little presto chango on us? You be the judge...

SNL stands by my theory...

And why I love email forwards: Part One

At FLORIDA: it takes four, one to screw in the bulb and three to figure out how to get stoned off the old one.

At ALABAMA: it takes five, one to change it, three to reminisce about how The Bear would have done it, and one to throw the old bulb at an NCAA investigator.

At OLE MISS: it takes six, one to change it, two to mix the drinks and three to find the perfect J. Crew outfit to wear for the occasion.

At LSU: it takes seven, and each one gets credit for five Semester hours.

At KENTUCKY: it takes eight, one to screw it in and seven to discuss how much brighter it seems to shine during basketball season.

At MISSISSIPPI STATE: it takes fifteen, one to screw in the bulb, two to buy the Skoal, and twelve to yell, 'GO TO HELL, OLE MISS'.

At ARKANSAS: None. There ain't no 'lectricity in Arkansas


Pa-lease, what I watched last night was not the 90210 I know. The only thing that remained the same was Nat and the Peach Pit - though I wonder, did the After Dark shut down?

But what's that you say, Kelly and Brenda were on the show last night too? Whatever! Dylan's baby mama acted like a 12-year-old when the hot for teacher showed up at her door. The real Kelly Taylor would have made him work a little harder - especially after insulting her. And if you think Brenda isn't going to work her way into that story line, you're kidding yourself. Maybe that is one thing that will remain the same. The female Walsh twin has issues - and bad teeth, what happened?

Maybe it is because I was actually a teenager when I watched it the first time but I miss the good ole days. Da-nanana- da-nanana-cha cha.

Btw, I dedicate this post to Ben Lyons - a fellow old school 90210 fan. Keep it real Ben and if you ever find yourself at home in NYC look me up. xoxo

Holy Scott!

Amelia, my good ole' buddy in Atlanta, just informed me that Willard Scott was the first Ronald McDonald ever (she also said to thank Kristal & Stephen). She told me this because I love random facts and once used to report "Who Knews" while I worked in Atlanta. Well...here's a "Who Knew" for Peaches to Apples...

Who Knew?

Willard Scott made Ronald McDonald even more creepy when no one else thought it was possible.

Busy swizie

So...Heather and I get internet today at the casa, so updates will be a lot more fun and frequent! I've been very busy at work this week (hence no post from me since Friday!)...but promise more NYC shenanigans very soon!

Let's just say I have a story about the meat-packing district that involves a married Canadian who was offended I didn't want to break up his marriage. Who knew?

Oh yeah - Heather and I have discovered the gold that is Cold Stone's Peanut Butter Cup Perfect..in a quart!! Yes folks...dreams do come true!



I didn't realize how much I would miss that big red bulls eye but it looks like they miss me too and are on Target once again. WOOHOO!!!

According to The New York Times, "Target to Open Designer-Focused Stores in New York" ...

Target, continuing its flirtatious relationship with Manhattan shoppers, plans to open four “pop-up” stores around the city next week to sell fall merchandise by its 22 designers.

Fashions and accessories by three of them — Sigerson Morrison, Jonathan Saunders and Anya Hindmarch — will be sold in the city a month before they are available anywhere else in the country.

Target is calling these temporary stores bodegas to convey an egalitarian and very New York shopping experience, said Ms. Tesija. They will be located in vacant storefronts in Midtown, Union Square, SoHo and the East Village, and will open Sept. 12, which is the end of Fashion Week.

At the pop-up stores — which will be open for four days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. — merchandise will be priced on average at $25.
