Great News!!!!

I have been planning a trip to New York City for my birthday and am using money that I got from investing to fund it. Well, right before christmas I did not have enough money to start booking hotel and plane tickets with confidence. Its a good think I asked everyone for cash for Christmas! I now have enough money to go!!!! I actually booked my hotel and plane reservations last night! My mom and I will be going to NYC Mar. 23 - 27. We will be staying at the Radisson Lexington Hotel and the Grand Hyatt New York.

Btw, the Radisson Lexington Hotel is the only hotel in Manhattan to have a starbucks IN the building!! I am SO excited!!

Last Minute Gifts

If you are stumped on gifts this year and can't figure out what to get me, I am about to save you.

There is still time to get an gift certificate! So if you *cough jeff cough* are doing some last minute shopping today *cough jeff cough* I suggest going the amazon route.

Its Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Christmas

It is finally getting below 50 degrees!!! For the past week it has been in the high 70s and that is no fun for Christmas. So finally in the mornings it is getting cold. However, the highs are still in the 60s. But long as I get to use the seat warmer on the car at some point during the holidays I am happy.

Christmas Weather/Giant Tree Rant

I love Christmas for many reasons including the weather. I love the cold weather because it makes me not sweat (I have sweating issues). This year however, I am still sweating. No, my sweating issues have not gotten worse. The reason for the continued sweating is because it is spring time. Last night I literally drove with the windows down. It was 76!!!! AND I saw butterfly yesterday in out backyard! As much I love the spring weather, I want cold!

I am not the only one who is complaining though. We planted some bulbs in our backyard and in order for them to bloom in the spring they need cold weather to trigger their biological clock.

I am blaming all of this on the global warming.

Oh yeah, speaking of global warming. Did anyone else hear about how at a tree lighting ceremony in Seattle the mayor went on a rant about how the North Pole is melting and how Santa won't have a home? Yeah...that was a bad move. For such an environmentally concious city you would have thought that instead of depressing children and possibly educing nightmares they would have done like GE/NBC who put solar panels on the top of the GE building in Rockefeller Center which will power the enormous tree in Rockefeller Center. And oh yeah, the lights on the Rockefeller tree are super efficient and super eco friendly LED bulbs. So to NBC, GE, and Rockefeller Center I say, "YES! I LOVE THAT!" and to the mayor of Seattle, whoever let him give that speech, and whoever did not think to make the tree "green" I say, "BOOOOO!!!". Hopefully more giant Christmas trees will go green next year following the example set by NBC/GE.
