Happy New Year!

I hope that you all have had a wonderful start to the New Year. Despite being sick, we had a great time ringing in the new year in NYC.
We were lucky enough to have a hotel room with a view of some of the Times Square festivities. With the window open we could hear all of the musical acts (multiple performances of each act!) and hear the crowd when they counted down. It was a fun experience and the most exciting New Year I have had in a long time.
We could even see Carson Daly do his t.v. broadcast thanks to the zoom on my camera. The teenager in me who watched TRL all the time was a little too excited about this.

At midnight we saw tons of confetti!
It was everywhere. We even saw confetti still flying through the air on Monday before we flew home.
The real reason we were in NYC for the weekend was to see shows, mainly to see Billie Joe Armstrong in the musical American Idiot, which was amazing. We also saw the play La Bete and the musicals In The Heights and Spiderman. Of course a trip would not be complete without dinner at our favorite Cuban restaurant, Victors and a stop at Pinkberry. We also tried Shake Shack for the first time and loved it!
It was a great way to start this new year!
