A visit from Twinsie.

Last week Christy (whose birthday is today!) came to town for a visit.  I was already excited for her to come, but I'd had a sort of rough few days leading up to her visit so it was especially nice to get to see her and do some fun things.  Christy is one of the nicest, happiest people I know and is generally a delight to be around.  We've been friends since we were probably 7 or 8 years old and have shared many things over the years, including a love of Lipsmackers sparkly chapstick and The Simpsons, driving lessons in the church parking lot, and sandwich bags full of Marshmallow Mateys during early-morning seminary.  The day before coming to NYC, Christy ran the Boston Marathon in record-breaking heat and lived to tell the tale.  She is a champ.

During the week, Christy explored the city on her own while I was at work and then we spent the evenings eating delicious food, reminiscing, and somehow never taking a picture of us together.  On Saturday we went for a run (which was a liiiiittle tough on both of us) and then hit the ticket lottery for Newsies on Broadway.  It's a pretty popular show right now so I knew our chances weren't great, but Christy's name got called for the last pair of tickets!  We visited the Waffle Truck in celebration.

The waffles are so delicious, you guys, I can't even talk about it. 

The show was awesome. So fun, and it made me want to watch the movie again. Basically the entire cast was wearing vests and leaping and punching the air. There was so much air-punching! It was awesome. The dancing was fantastic and there were at least four former So You Think You Can Dance boys in the show.

So that was fun. Come visit me and we will eat many delicious things and see fun shows and I will only maybe make you go running. Deal?
