New York, New York

So this last week I tagged along with my husband on his work trip to New York. It was so much fun! Best trip ever! But I'm an idiot and didn't take a single picture. So I will try to recap my trip borrowing other people's pictures so you can get the idea.

We arrived Tuesday night and started our time in New York with a slice of pizza. Yum.

(See how happy my husband and I are eating pizza. Doesn't it look delicious?)

Wednesday my husband had meetings so I braved the city alone and did a little shopping. It truly was pure bravery. I had to face stores like Abercrombie where they made their store employees parade around the front door like this:

I mean, come on, if you think stunts like this are going to bring in shoppers, Abercrombie, come the store in my home town doesn't do this? Maybe I should let them know what their New York counterpart is doing. I mean, purely in an effort to make them more consistent.

Wednesday night we had more pizza right before we saw this guy:

(Isn't my boyfriend so handsome?)

Sigh. I'm not going to lie, we shared several magical moments where I'm almost a hundred percent certain he was looking at me. Hugh Jackman put on such a great show. He was funny, witty, handsome. Seriously, what more could you want? The eighty year old women surrounding me agreed.

Thursday, I walked around in these shoes for 9+ hours (and this is the actual picture because I took it just now) and my feet fell off.

But before my feet fell off, we went to a taping of David Letterman and got to sit in the front row because apparently they thought we were loud and full of energy in our "interview" before the taping. They don't have me pinned at all. It was so cool. Jude Law was the guest. He pretty much looked exactly like the picture below. With the hat and everything.

That night we went out with my agent who rocked some cute and very high heels to try to close the distance between our height. She looked hot. :)

(So this picture is from our last meeting. Imagine us both looking even better! I know, it's hard to believe, but that's the kind of luxury taking no pictures affords us. We can remember things how we want to remember them.)

Friday I got to see both my agent and editor together over lunch. Having two of my favorite people in the same place doing one of my favorite things (eating) was awesome!

(That's me on the left [obviously]. :) Sarah, did you know this is the only picture of you in the entire webiverse? I mean, if that were me, I'd probably want this to be the only picture in existence of me, but now I have even more regret that we didn't take a picture. Because your super cute self needs some more web time and the world needed to see that awesome shirt you wore to lunch that I wanted to steal.)

My amazing editor brought me a sneak peek of my book cover!!!!!!!! I almost died. I can't wait to get the final version and show all of you. I love it so much.

So, as you can see through my picture extravaganza, I had the best trip ever to New York. How are you all spending your holidays??


  1. YAY!!! I'm glad you had so much fun!!!! <3333

  2. YAY! I'm glad you had such a great time! Hugh Jackman is SO handsome. Love him. And I'm dying to see your cover too! :D

  3. So, I was loving this post. I laughed. I felt jealous, but happy for you. I was totally entertained.

    And then you TEASED ABOUT SEEING YOUR COVER. MEAN!! You can't do these things, Kasie!

    *whiny voice* I wanna seeeeeeee.

    In other news, your editor is very pretty! And so is Michelle, though I already knew that. The three of you could form a beautiful Cool Girls Clique in the publishing industry and everyone would want to be you and be your friends.

  4. This is hilarious. I almost forgot what you look like with all the other people standing in. :p

    This does indeed, seem like the best NYC trip ever! ;-D

  5. OMG!!!!!! Hilarious!!!!! Next time you come to NY maybe I can scoot in and meet up with you!!!!

  6. Sounds like you had a great time, but those shoes. I can't believe you walked around for 9 hours. I couldn't have made it for 9 minutes.

    Have a Merry Christmas.

  7. Now I can't remember how I stumbled onto your blog/twitter (as is often the case), but here I am. And now here you are -- all bookmarked and everything.

    Love using other people's pictures. Funny!

    I will be back for more.

  8. If you are going to replace yourself with other women, at least have them look like you. What? You couldn't find a single Jennifer Garner or Rachel McAdams? Come on. And those shoes ... I bet you were eye to eye with your husband.

    It's been fun catching up on your blog.

  9. I LURRVVEEE those boots! They are just too cute! They do look a little painful though for touring a city!
