Heading to NYC this weekend

No, I'm not going to NYC to meet an agent or editor. *sigh* I wish! But what I AM going for is pretty darn great anyway.

This weekend is a big one. For starters one of my best friends is getting married in Brooklyn, which means I'm making the short two and half hour trek to the city. Ahh, but here are a few stellar side bonuses to this journey.

1. My first overnight stay away from my son since he was born. Two years ago. Meaning I can get ripped at the wedding and not have to worry about waking up in the middle of the night for anyone or getting up early. I. Get. To. Sleep. In. Woohoo!

2. I get to spend two days my oldest friend catching up, venturing around the city, jumping on the hotel beds and getting all dolled up for our friends super special night. Love road trips with good friends.

3. I'm going to The Strand. If you're like me and have never heard of this place let me tell you it's a giant bookstore in NYC. I'm oh so excited about this because I hear you can get ARCs there. *gasp* I even heard you can buy them for $1.99. I might die if this is indeed true. I'm so psyched to see this place and praying I get books - lots of books!

I'm pretty upset about my camera being broken but I'm determined to have some way to take pics this weekend which I will of course share. A book store that boasts 18 miles of books. Yeah, I think I need some pics of me there for sure. Not to mention the fact that one of my BFFs is getting hitched!

* Please oh please share with me if you've been to The Strand!

SO fun! Enjoy your trip. Sounds like it's going to be a blast.

I'm so jealous of your trip to The Strand! I've heard nothing but amazing things about that bookstore.
