50 states: New York state of mind

So the post I had planned for today will have to wait because I'M GOING TO NEW YORK on Monday. My college's basketball team advanced to the National Invitation Tournament semifinals at Madison Square Garden with their win over Northwestern last night. As soon as my blood pressure returned to normal (the game went into overtime), the fiance booked my ticket (God bless airline miles) and my whirlwind adventure was set into motion.

It will be my first trip to the Big Apple and I would love, love, love and appreciate any tips on yummy restaurants, good record stores, can't-miss vintage shops and quintessential New York must-sees.

One stop will definitely be the Brooklyn Bridge. I'm not sure what draws me to the incredible structure, but it's so romantic and majestic.

Thanks, girls. I am beyond stoked right now! It's all happening so fast.

Kayla: I would love your opinion on fun stuff to do/see. I want to visit the MoMA and Brooklyn Bridge for sure, but would like to also check out cool record stores, restaurants and vintage/antique shops.

I wish you could take me with you... I am so beyond overdue for NYC. Damn those planes and the cost for tickets! Gets me every time. Usually because I also found a fabulous bag that month.. or shoes! Whoops!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
