Autumn in New York-3

Okay, here is the rest of the NY trip! Thursday night we went to Lion King! (yes, TWO broadways! We are spoiled) It had some amazing costumes! We loved it! Then we went to Plataforma (Ammon & Carlo's favorite Brazillian place)- it was soooooo yummy! Friday we went to Lo'Real & had a mini shopping spree-FREE STUFF!! We got to go into their employee shop & pick whatever we wanted! Then we went to Cafeteria, a great little place to eat & Crystal & I got these cute hot chocolates! (we all know how I feel about hot cocoa...) Then we went & shopped our hearts out! Started at the Diesel sample sale, then to the famous Canal street where Crystal had her first experience in the "underground" rooms! lol! Ammon & I were pro's at knocking down the price for her! After we got her knock off bag, we went to SoHo! We kept Crystal naked in her dressing room almost the entire time, throwing pant after pant & shirt after shirt. (by the end of our trip she walked away with 3 new skirts & 3 new jeans, 1 sweater, 1 top, 2 necklaces & some HOT stilleto boots!-Ammon really made her trip incredible!) After fun shopping (and lots of walking!) we went home to clean up! We took a boat tour at sunset around the city!! GORGEOUS! & So fun! Then back to the apt for dinner & games with some of Amms & Carlo's good friends Kevin & Alex-who cracked us up the entire night! Friday was AWESOME! Our last day, SATURDAY was my favorite. We rode bikes through the city & over the Brooklyn Bridge! We went to Grimaldi's Pizza- a famous Pizza joint in Brooklyn, and before it had even opened the line was down the street! After our AMAZING bike ride, we went to the Plaza hotel to see Ammon's salon, Warren Tricomi. (and I got to see my headbands on display!) We had a relaxing night just hanging out & laughing. It was an amazing trip!!

Ammon's scar is healing!

Our Lady Liberty

Look at the city behind us! This is my favorite

We were cracking up! I kept trying to take a picture of Crystal with the statue without her hair in her face- NO MATTER WHAT WE TRIED, we couldn't do it!! Here are our attempts:

George Washington Arch- one of many stops on our bike ride

Wall Street

So like I said, the line was long. So while we were waiting Ammon provided some entertainment!
Ammon's Dance Moves
One of our favorite SNL skits- 'Suprise Party' impression

Thanks for inviting me to NY, I can't wait to go back!

Hey Mari. It's Chelsey Booth. Ammon and I were BFF in hair school. I'm not sure how I came across your blog but I'm so glad I did! It's so good to see Ammon's face again and see he is doing well in NYC. My hubby just finished law school at Chapman and he is waiting on his bar results... seems like you guys live close to us, we live in Orange. Check out our blog! Tell Ammon hi for me!
