Thank you all for your supportive comments!
I think that I ended up spending around $700 on my trip but we did some amazing things while there. We went to a Cabaret show at the Carlyle. We saw Chicago. We were going to see The Book of Mormon but it was $460 per ticket. Um, no thanks. I did the Hop On Hop Off bus through downtown and uptown. We had a drink on the 48th floor of the Mariott. The bar rotates so we got to see the entire city at night. That was $46 including tip. I saw Times Square and it is so much like I thought but better. I got my haircut and it is kind of growing on me. I took the subway. The only other time I've taken the subway was in Korea and its much easier to navigate when the directions are in English. LOL! I went shopping in Soho and ate at a few real NYC delicatessens. I saw St. Paul's Cathedral and Ground Zero.
Overall, it was a very cool experience. I'm glad that I did it but I would never trade my life for living there. I missed Lil Punk so much and it was so wonderful to see her yesterday. I realized that I'm not materialistic and my life is full of wonderful things where I live including my family, job, and my home.
Have you ever went on vacation and had fun but realized that you are so appreciative of how your life really is?
