August 30th,2016, I flew from Oklahoma to New York to Visit my big sister and my nephew. I have not seen them in six months, and with everything that I am going through mentally and emotionally it was very much needed to be around my sister. I have been to New York before but, not long enough to enjoy the air.
Flying out of Will Rogers airport at 11:30 am to Charlotte,North Carolina for a 3 hour layover, which was not that bad. It was so awesome to be in the Tar Heel State, and even with tempation of Tar Heel and Panther apparel everywhere i kept my composure.
When I was flying over New York and saw the lights it was super beautiful! Seeing my sister was awesome, I did not cry at all, I am sure leaving will cause water works though.
Got my metro card(transportation pass) and we went grocery shopping as well as checking Target for planner goods. It is a lot of walking but, definitely not something to complain about . I am getting all my exercise while I am here .
It was a very gloomy day and it was raining so we stayed inside all day. My sister and I were planing in our Happy Planners while my nephew was sleep. We ate some yummy Chili and Sweet potato fries. Watches the Secret life of Pets, which was a cute movie . We were jamming to Pandora and just bonding with each other, telling her about love, work and other everyday things.
DAY THREE: Friday September 2nd,2016
My sister was OFF and we went to NYC! Time Square is an amazing place to be! Went to the Disney store, couldn’t find the Little Mermaid collection that I was looking for but, it was an experience . Met some Rappers that were selling their cds, and pursuing their dreams. The Naked Cowboy and cast members of Broadway shows were on the sidewalks as we traveled to other parts of NYC.
Exploring with my Sister , Nephew and my brother in laws roommate (Who gave me my Bluetooth headset) went to wall street , and staten island where I got on the Staten Island Ferry and see the Statue Of Liberty. The beautiful Skyline of Manhattan from the boat. Another amazing trip to Time Square where it got a little dark and you can see a little more of the lights of the beautiful scenery. A street performance was doing flips and somersaults over people. Watched a Spraypaint artist create a painting of New York City and it was really beautiful. We went to the first part of Central Park, which is a Huge by the way!!! Rice Black beans and Chicken is was was for dinner.
DAY FIVE: Sunday September 4th,2016
My first Planner meetup! Which was the most amazing thing to encounter! I met some of the owners of my Favorite Etsy Sticker shops, learning about the background stories on how they started planning. My Planner Buddy Jennifer Sole was there and it was pleasure meeting her as well. Super sweet person. Learning about different planners . Finding my new Target Dollar Spot Planner..
DAY SIX : Monday September 5th,2016
HAPPY LABOR DAY!!! It was a chill and have a rest day for everyone. Washed some laundry, which took about an hour, walked back to the house… and just relaxed , watched Youtube Videos on Travelers Notebooks, and Plan With me’s, while I assembled my new Target Dollar Spot Planner. Finished the day with a Chicken Salad which was super yummy.
