NYC, Wicked, and The Rapture

First of all, let me say how happy I am that we all survived The Rapture!  Have you ever been a part of such craziness in your life as last Saturday?  My dad, my mom, Michael, and I took the train into NYC for the day.  It was such a beautiful day, which is saying a lot if you know how the weather on the East Coast has been lately.  I don't get a chance to go to NYC often, so I was super-excited to go and spend the day there.  I was all set to take lots of photos, since I was carrying my camera in my new Jo Totes bag, but I got all caught up in the sights and didn't take too many.

We rode into Penn Station and walked down 7th Street towards Times Square.  7th Street is in the Fashion District, and I was all about being a tourist that day, so I whipped out my camera when I saw Parsons New School of Design.  Helloooooooo?  Tim Gunn?  Are you in there?!?!?!?

The city was teeming with Mennonites that day.  I'm not sure if it was because of the anticipated Rapture, or just happenstance, but either way it was a strange juxtaposition to see all of those white bonnets in the middle of the Big Apple.

Are you ready for the ultra-touristy shots?

My parents dressed in green because we were seeing Wicked.  Could they be any cuter?  There is no one in the world I would rather spend time with than these two.

It was an interesting day to be in NYC because of the whole Rapture thing.  Fun, and interesting.  The crazies were definitely out.

Well, that crazy is always out.  :)  But there were a few more that day...

Let's just cover up a few things in this next photo to protect your tender eyes.

Suffice it to say:  YIKES!

But the real reason we went to NYC was to see Wicked.  And it was absolutely amazing.  I haven't stopped thinking about it!

Have you seen it?  I would love to know what you thought!  (I also loved how Rachel and Kurt performed "For Good" on Glee tonight!)  It was a fabulous day.  I can't wait to go back to NYC!


  1. Awesome!! I'm glad you had a great time. Pics are great. I like the one of the button and the needle! (I heart Project Runway too) Also, the Naked Cowboy is from my hometown, who knew?? ;)

  2. Wonderful blog, Amy, we did have a wonderful time. And I was so thrilled to see Kristin Chenowith sing "For Good" to close the Tuesday Opray episode. Seems everyone was in a Wicked way this week.
