You may have guessed by some of my pictures popping up around the internet that I am on my way to New York City today. With too many things packed, my Mom and I loaded up the car and we are off! (I’m actually writing this on Sunday night, so let’s just assume this is the case.)
The city is about 5.5 hours from my little inn so we are driving. Though, after arriving safely into the city, the car will be parked and quickly forgotten as taxis, subways, and feet will be the preferred mode of transportation.
My Dad is taking care of my little inn and my kitties while I’m away. Thank goodness for Dads. Though, I’m pretty sure Sebastian may have wanted to come along. Either that or he was just obsessed with the my new bag. It’s where he spent most of his Sunday.
I have somewhat of a plan for this trip thanks to all your fabulous suggestions. Thank you so much! So far, here’s what I’ve come up with… We will attempt to eat at Sarabeth’s, Sullivan’s Bakery, Lombardi’s – supposedly ‘the best’ pizza, Serendipity – frozen hot chocolate, some place in Soho (either Balthazar’s or Hundred Acres, or Boquera). We will visit the magical land of Soho, we will attend the blogger social (more on that tomorrow), visit Rockefeller center, attend the musical Once, stroll through central park, visit the highline and other things are still TBD. Sounds pretty good, right? I’m thinking I should have a better plan, but I’m also hoping things will somewhat fall into place.
I’m a bit nervous about this trip, but I’m also super excited! It’s been so long since I’ve visited the city and took sometime away from work, so I’m really look forward to it.
And thanks for everyone’s help last night! I posted this picture…
… on Facebook and Instagram. I’m trying to figure out what to wear to this darn blogger social and I can’t make up my mind. Instagram seems to favor the one on the right while Facebook was pretty much a tie. The outfit on the left is black shoes, blackish/dressy jeans, a yellow and black gingham shirt, and a black tie. The outfit on the right is brown shoes, maroon chinos, a navy gingham shirt, and grey tie. I’m still undecided by I’m leaning toward the one on the right. It just seems more ‘me’ and more ‘Inspired by Charm’. Does that make sense? If you have some advice, please PLEASE let me know in the comments. I’m brought both along just in case.
And finally, I’ll be sharing my travels as we go. You can follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instragram.
I’ll be using #IBCinNYC to keep everything organized. I’ll also let you know tomorrow how you can follow along during the blogger social as well.
Wish me luck!!
