How Pinteresting: NYC Edition

Today has been a hard day for me at work. I have too many things on my To-Do list and what feels like not enough hours in the day. However, it's my lunch break and I'm going to zone out and have fun on Pinterest for today's How Pinteresting Wednesday!

Since I am only 16 days and 7 hours (approximately) from landing at Newark and spending a weekend with my Jersey Boy in NYC I thought today's How Pinteresting should be a NYC Edition.

Time to go play on Pinterest. I'll be back....

I have to admit this is what I'm most excited for... Newark International Airport. Only because that means this is all really happening and my Mr. New Jersey will be waiting for me outside security. 

Found here.
Then of course there is the dreaded Turnpike. When my aunt (who grew up in New Jersey) found out I was going she told me to avoid it at all cost. However I think to get to Jersey Boy's house we have to go. If only it really looked like this:

Although Mr. New Jersey lives in (surprise) New Jersey, he lives just over the George Washington Bridge from New York City (where he also works) and we plan to spend most of our time there. 

Found here.
Aside from the fact that I'm so excited to meet Mr. New Jersey face-to-face (beyond excited...excited doesn't even begin to describe how I'm feeling!!) I'm also excited to visit NYC. My high school theatre troupe went one year but my family couldn't afford it (even with fundraising) so I didn't get to go.

Since this will be my first time (and part of me likes the idea of my first time being 1-on-1 with a special someone versus a large group of HS students) there are so many places I want to see. 

Like the Empire State Building:

Found here.
The Statue of Liberty:

Found here.
Central Park:

Found here.
There's also food I want to REAL New York Pizza, a gooood Jewish deli bagel, and of course New York street food like "Dirty Water Dogs" (one of Anthony Bourdain's favorites). 

Found here.
Honestly I'm most excited to meet my Jersey Boy and see what the chemistry is like in person. Everything else is just a perk.
