Ode to Al

So, T-2 days til Allison comes to visit. Hooray!

We have high and lofty plans for this weekend. She will start it off by riding the good 'ol Chinatown bus- a quality 5.5 hours of togetherness with interesting people and the occasional expired tapioca pudding smell. We will then enjoy the festivities in the City... Halloween on a Friday night in New York City. Oh boy. Not sure if we'll make it down to the parade, but it's sure to be crazy.

Saturday we will be getting up super early. Like 5am, folks. Yes. The dream of SNL tickets always trumps sleep. We're hoping half the people who would be in line anyway are still hungover from the night before. But we'll be there bright & early to get the impossibly hard to come by tix to SNL. Ben Affleck is hosting. Enough said.

If we don't get them, we'll then head over to the Today show and wave to our parents on tv and anyone else who is up that early. Afterwards we'll try and get tickets for Letterman. If that fails, we'll try lottery for a Broadway show and if three strikes we're out happens... there's always TKTS.

I can't wait! What fun it is when your best friend (and Bride-to-be) comes to visit!

I'll leave you with a few of my favorite 'Carrie & Allison in NYC' pictures:

And I think this one pretty much sums it up.
