I'm in New Jersey!! My trip went completely as planned...amazing! Everything was on time, actually I was a little early getting into Newark, and my luggage showed up, I rode the train to the rental car counters, and I even got a free upgrade to a midsize b/c they were out of compacts.
On my drive from the airport to the hotel, I caught the quickest glimpse of Manhattan, and I got giddy! I'm so excited to be here!
Now I'm sitting in a very nice one-bedroom suite, getting settled, checking email and waiting for my friend, Virginia, and her hubby to show up. Our plan is to head into the city tonight for dinner. Woo hoo!
Time to go find a snack to tide me over until dinner! Catch ya later!
Update: Just got back from my adventure to find a snack...I was looking for some cute little Italian place to grab a slice of pizza...and there were plenty of those, but they were all on the other side of the highway, and there was nowhere to turn around. Let's just say that I saw quite of bit of small town NJ on my quest that eventually took me through the McD's drive thru...oh well, next time.
Oh, and I already had to act like a NJ driver when I slammed on my brakes and punched the horn as some idiot in a Lexus almost pulled right into me! And, have you seen all those Dunkin' Donuts commercials w/ Rachel Ray? I was wondering why it was such a big deal for Rachel Ray to do an ad for them...and then I got here. There are LITERALLY Dunkin' Donuts on every sinhgle corner! I think I passed about 10 in the less than 10 miles I drove!
