New York, New York

Less than 48-hours after arriving home from Texas, my sister and I hopped on a plane to NYC for her graduation trip.

It. was. amazing.

We took 689 pictures, but I'll spare you. I narrowed it down to just 11 favorites to showcase the highlights from the week.

We, of course, loved Times Square and could have spent a month standing there watching all of the people.
Being the "small town" girls that we are, we were thoroughly fascinated with the public transportation and got a good amount of thrills out of the subway...
...and the taxis.
We saw the Statue of Liberty,
and fed squirrels in Battery Park. (This was a supervised activity, don't worry.) Emily handled the squirrel feeding with class...
...and I was totally freaked out.
We enjoyed MANY HOURS of shopping and were quite excited to purchase a few *Ahem* underground item. (Translation: we bought many cute purses that look like the real deal but are not -- and you have to go into secret rooms to look at them. It's fun. Really.)
We saw "The Little Mermaid" on Broadway,
and then enjoyed and amazing desert buffet at the revolving restaurant on the 48th floor of the Marriott Marquis.
We shopped some more,
had a great time on the Brooklyn Bridge,
and ended the trip with more shopping.
I loved traveling with my sister and it was so fun to explore somewhere new together. We walked and walked and walked until we just couldn't move anymore. It took me two days to get my energy back when we got home.

I think it is safe to say that these two sisters *heart* NY!
