Fun at Conference - New York Style!

Hi, everyone. I just got back from conference, and wanted to share some fun photos. 

Besides the stress of traveling, and coming down with a cold on my first day there...I had a great time. 

Here's the fabulous view from our 27th floor room overlooking Times Square!

The first night was a blast, with Annette Bower, Me, Susan Berger, and Char Chaffin having drinks and dessert at Junior's, directly across from our hotel.

The second night I went to see a Broadway Play, ON THE TOWN, with Char Chaffin and Susan Berger. A lot of fun was had.
The next day our fabulous publisher, Debby Gilbert, invited Char and me along for a walk through Central Park to the Zoo. After viewing the fun animals, we took a long boat ride around New York. 

I was able to see the World Trade Center's Freedom Tower, The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as many other awesome sites.

Authors Dinner - With Debby

The next day, Debby took some of us to Little Italy for a Five Course Meal. Can you say FULL! But, Yum!! 

Here's Karin and a BIG bottle of Red Wine (and yes, we killed it) - along with Lori, me, Char, Debby, and Dawn.

Lunch with my BFFs, Char Chaffin and Callie Hutton.

    You cracked me up with your comment about the ceiling.

    1. Hi, Bonnie. Yes, it was a great time. My first time in New York, and it didn't disappoint! And yeah, those lights were even funnier looking in person. Not sure what the designer had in mind...lol
