pure joy

Inspired by WeezerMonkey's post, I thought I would share a couple of recent inexpensive purchases that have resulted in an extraordinary amount of joy.

First, while at Target, my absolute weakness, I discovered 100 calorie pack Cinnamon Sun Chips. Yum!

Second, also at Target, a pink and tan Issac Mizrahi raincoat went on sale. I've been eyeing this jacket for some time now, but couldn't rationalize spending $60 on it. I wasn't even sure if it was a "so ugly, it's cute" kind of jacket or if it was just ugly. Well, when I saw that it went on sale, it suddenly appeared super cute. Looks cute with jeans and a white t-shirt.

We leave for New York tomorrow night at 11:10pm. I am so excited! We have a jam packed weekend planned. Friday morning, just a couple hours after we land, I'm going on a Sex and the City Bus tour and then in evening we have tickets to see Duran Duran (obviously, Rob's guilty pleasure). Saturday we're looking forward to strolling the streets, eating some delicious food, and hitting up some recommended shops before seeing Legally Blonde in the evening. Sunday we're meeting some East Coast family for lunch and more roaming the streets. We leave bright and early Monday morning, actually it may not even be bright when we leave. We land in LA at 10:30am. I took the entire day off, but Rob, the workaholic in the family, is heading straight the office. We decided to rent an apartment from Craigslist for $180/night rather than spend $300/night on a ghetto hotel room (and last year when we went to NYC, we brought home bed bugs from a decent hotel). I'll let ya'll know how the apartment rental goes...may be the new way to travel.

Have a festive, but safe, Halloween!

Ditto on Cinnamon sun chips. gotta get me some of that.

Oh that's a great idea of renting an apt instead of hotel room. Let me know how that pans out since I've been dying to go to NY. Have fun, I know you'll love Legally Blonde.
