Well my cunning plan finally paid off, I have spent the last few weeks sort of mentioning that I would really like to go for my 40th birthday in May..as previously mentioned in a post.  Well he said he would quite like to go but not until November as he likes to experience the whole Christmas thing..so that’s it..we are going on 24th November and we are taking Connor with us ( not sure if NJ is ready for Connor though)

I think we could hear Barrie screaming with excitement from across the pond…an extra bonus is that it’s thanksgiving while we are there and also Robby’s birthday so a whole bunch of celebrations along with my belated birthday and mine and Tony’s 10th wedding anniversary, I think we will probably be partying for the whole week. 

Up until now I haven’t sold any of my latest cards or made any as commisions but I think I might do for the forseeable future so I can earn some money for my stash fund….thats if anyone wants them of course !!!

Well we have had a pow wow today and the bad food ends tonight at bedtime.  We have all put on a bit of weight over Christmas so off it has to come.

Tony and I have been chatting some more today about the USA trip and we have come to a compromise.  I would like to go in May after my birthday, but he likes to go in the winter to soak up the New York Atmosphere so we are going to go about 24th November – two days before thanksgiving, and stay with Barrie and Brian in New Jersey for about 7 nights.  During that time we will catch the train into the city a couple of times and by doing it that way, we will save ourselves a fortune in hotel charges..money which could be better spent on Diamonds…or Stash !!

As I dont have any card pictures to show you today…I thought I would add a couple of pictures taken the last time we went to NYC.

Taken on "The top of the Rock" - The Rockerfeller Centre.

That is the Empire State building nestling between us.

We got engaged on the 102nd floor of The ESB on 18th December 1997 so every time we go back to NYC we always go there and reminisce. Ahhhh

America Here I come…I hope

Well those of you who know me will know that one of my very best friends lives in New Jersey in the good old U S of A.  I have been to visit twice already, once on my own as Tony said I could go a couple of years ago and I had the most fabulous time. Both of us went in January 2008 and combined it with our fith trip to New York.  I am desperate to go again and so he said if I save the money to go then I can go.  I am hoping to go shortly after my 40th in May which gives me another incentive to lose the weight….but I also have to save the money for the flight ( I have £60.00 already)  and then I need some serious stash spends !!!!

Here is a piccie of my friend Barrie, her husband Brian and their son Robby..
