|| dinner with the gang & arlene's grocery ||


// after dinner we walked down to arlene's grocery. on the way, jessica volunteered to give an interview with investigation discovery (i think it's a tv series) about a date from hell she had - it was hilarious!

// arlene's grocery to see fishdoctor
// it was an awesome night of meeting new people and exploring new places. fishdoctor (the band) was amazing! check out their music and don't forget to like their facebook page here and follow them on twitter, here!

// the next morning (sunday) we had to get up early and jet back to long island for my aunt's surprise party. it was a long and amazing day of seeing family mom hadn't seen in 25 years and family i'd never really met!

// monday, mom and i spent the morning driving around her old neighborhood. i practically died laughing at the stories she was telling me of her in her youth...

|| hell's kitchen flea market ||

// saturday morning i woke up bright and early for an acting class with my cousin. my cousin is a casting director in ny as well as an acting coach. before mom and i even got to ny, my cousin informed me that she had a class starting the saturday that we were in ny and she wanted me to sit in on it... OK!!!!
it was fantastic!
i loved seeing her in action with the students. i learned so much!

// after class, we headed to the hell's kitchen flea market. the one place that was a "must-see" on my list of things to do in ny.
// i purchased a vintage betsy ross flag & a metal cuff bracelet. the hell's kitchen flea market was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. 
// that night, jessica invited me out to dinner for one of her friends birthdays and then to her boyfriends bands gig at arlene's grocery...

|| times square and the counter ||

// as we are walking down the street, i start taking pictures of all the lights and the signs and then i grabbed jessica and said "jess, wait! i know this place, it's famous or i've seen this in a movie or something!" she looks at me, laughs and says "kerrin, this is times square!"

... don't tell anyone i did that!

in my defense the last time i was in times square, this huge mall area with the tables and chairs and staircase wasn't there. it was still two roads. lol 
// we walked up times square and then finally made it to dinner at the counter
// this place was good!!! it was a perfect ending to a very packed friday.

// after dinner we went back to the hotel, i needed my beauty sleep because the next morning i needed to be up and ready for my acting class...

|| times square best western ||

// ma and i wanted to stay at least one night in manhattan so we were going to search the city for a cheap hotel until one of my mom's clients, who works for best western, offered to get us a free nights stay at the best western in times square... nahh, i think we'll pass! 


BAZINGA! 

// when we arrived at the hotel, the front lobby was packed full of people we could barely see the front desk. once we fumbled over a few people, the front desk...uhh... dude told us that they had to bump our room. ma & i looked at each other in slight panic. he then handed us our key cards and said "you go in the elevator and push the 'PH button', your room number is 1602". ma says "PH button?" {don't forget her accent, people}. the lovely man behind the counter replied with "PH stands for penthouse, we needed to move you to that room". my mother, not understanding that the Lord was trying to bless us, starts arguing with the man "why did you have to move our room?!?" he smiled and said "you ask questions, i take it back!"  ma and i looked at each other in amazement , laughed and said "ok then, thanks!"
// my back is to our front door. you see that tv on the wall? it was on a track in the ceiling and you could pull the entire screen across the patio window if you wanted. oh yeah, we had a patio...
// look to the left of the big building and down that street is times square
// here's our messy unmade bed {my back is to the patio window}. it was up on platform that my mother kept forgetting was there so i would hear her stub her toe on it often{4 times to be exact}.

// and now for the pièce de résistance... the bathroom!
// as you walk in, to the right, we have the amazing jacuzzi tub! the entire bathroom was marble
// as you walk in, to the left, we have the toilet/bidet{weird}. you can see the wall behind the toilet? well, behind that was the shower with two shower heads. the entire bathroom is an open space. those two metal squares on the floor - heaters to warm up the cold floors - ya!
// the huge hanging white square to the left with the outlet on it is the back of the mirror. and who doesn't need a flat screen in the bathroom?!? i sure do!
// see!
//  the amazing sink. i have to say this is probably my dream bathroom. wouldn't you agree?

//  after settling in to our new digs, we remembered we hadn't eaten any dinner yet. diane and jess met us at our penthouse, we added a few more layers for the cold weather and we were off to dinner in times square...
// jess and i on our patio
// number of days we have been in new york: {still} 3
// number of uncontrollable & excited "oh my gosh's" coming from my mother{see my vine feed}: 93
// number of new friends: 5
// number of slices of pizza i have consumed: 3
