I do my little turn on the catwalk...

MiniMac is off to his grandparents tomorrow. It is time for an adults only weekend/weekday getaway. As soon as we kiss that little man goodby, we are flying to:









Why? Because:












But also because I will be watching this for several days:



















One of my amazing Christmas gifts from JMac was a well-crafted and well-orchestrated surprise trip to NYC for Fashion Week. I get to see some of my favorite designers and access to meet several new ones. I am trying to quell my giddiness. But why should I? I know. I should not. When JMac told me, I made an enthusiastic sound. Something like a squeal. A sound I didn't think I could reproduce since I was wearing my cheerleader uniform in high school. But it did prompt me to pull out my new Valentino tuxedo jacket and do my own little turn on the catwalk. But trust me, in the Apple, I will leave the real work to the professionals.

Looking forward to the Fashion Extraordinaire, some gorgeous dinners, great wine, a little Valentines Day love, and some time alone with JMac. And I fully appreciate the lengths he goes to to give amazing and thoughtful gifts. Although, the first time we went to NYC together, we brought home an amazing yet unplanned souvenir. His name is MiniMac and he just turned four. And no, we are not planning on that same unplanned activity.The only souvenir I plan to bring home is present for MiniMac. Oh, and maybe a little Chanel for my arm.

Have a fabulous weekend and week. I will be back on Thursday!

Have a fabulous time. Dress very warm. That city is so cold and windy in the winter. Brrrr. I grew up in NJ so I know this to be true. If you get a chance take the Circle Line cruise around all of Manhattan. It's great.

Okay, I'm not even going to try to hide the fact that I'm jealous. Me too would love to go to New York Fashion Week...Sigh.

And JMac truly is awesome, what a great, romantic mini-vacation he has planned!

the walking man said...

I already know what the T shirt miniMac is going to receive will say
"My mom went to fashion week and all I got..."

HalfAsstic.com said...

Have fun! And, by the way, you're dooming yourself by saying there will be no more "unplanned surprises" coming back from NY with you! TAKE IT BACK! QUICK! LOL

Baloney said...

Nothing wrong with MiniMac#2 - but, hey... that's your call. ;)

Fun times! My daughter is going to intern this summer for a commercial and fashion photog, so she'll be getting a little taste of this life. I'm saving your cocktail recipe for when it hits 70 here. We're expecting snow on Tuesday! :(

Vivienne said...

Wait! He takes you on a whirlwind trip to NYC during Fashion Week and you can't stay awake for your post-trip romantic evening? I think you maybe need to get up early then.
