New York City: Day 1!🍎

June 8, 2017

“Jumped in the cab here I am for the first time…” -Miley Cyrus

I am in New York!!!  It’s been a crazy day!  Here’s a timeline of my first day in NYC.

6:00AM: Wake up not very happy at first because why am I awake at 6AM on a summer day?  But then, my mood changes when I realize today we are going to NYC!

7:00AM:  Arrive at DFW international airport✈️

7:30AM:  Buy chicken minis from Chick-Fil-A and my typical caramel frap from Starbucks.  Food and frap in hand= happy Kaylee

8:30AM: Board flight and realize the flight has TV’s with lots of free movies!! (Shoutout to American Airlines).  I ended up watching Passengers and 9/10 would recommend.

9:00AM:  Take off from DFW!  New York here we come!

1:30PM:  Arrive at New York-Laguardia Airport!

1:50PM: Get in an interesting looking taxi that reminded me of a small school bus.  Side note: New York drivers are insane.  Lots of honking.

2:55PM:  Arrive at our hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, in Times Square to drop off our luggage.

2:57PM: Begin frantically sprinting to Rockefeller Plaza in order to make it in time to see The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

3:09PM:  Arrive at Rockefeller Plaza with 6 minutes to spare!!

5:00PM:  Sit in a live taping of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon!  What an amazing experience. 

 Tips on how to get the tickets:

  • Follow @FallonTix on twitter
  • Make an 1iota account in advance so you aren’t slowed down when trying to request the tickets
  • Turn on notifications for @FallonTix account
  • Be ready to request the tickets the moment they go on sale
  • Warning: Tickets sell out unbelievably fast so be prepared!! Tickets for June sold out within 5 minutes so be quick.
  •  The tickets for an entire month will go the month before and they will announce the ticket relase date on the twitter page

If you are able to get tickets: Congrats!  You did it!πŸŽ‰ The show was incredible and Jimmy was very nice!  I even got to touch him!!!

6:30PM:  Go to NBC gift shop and find souvenirs from all my favorite tv shows including The Office and FRIENDS!!!!

6:45PM: Dinner at Harry’s Italian Pizza Parlor inside Rockefeller Plaza.  Very yummy!

9:00PM:  Walking around through the city as I spot one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen with my own eyes.  My jaw literally dropped and my hand went to my mouth when I saw this church.  What a sight to see.  I think the fact that this gorgeous, ancient church was smack dab in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city was what struck me.  Amazing.

9:30PM: Dessert at Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.  In honor of seeing Jimmy Fallon (and because it is an amazing flavor) I got “The Tonight Dough” flavor which is a mix of chocolate, caramel, brownie, and cookie dough (all my favorite sweets combined into one #score)!

10:00PM:  Taking the elevator up 70 floors to the Top of the Rock at Rockerfellar Plaza.  What an incredible view!!!  Definitely worth the money!  

11:30PM:  Attempt to find ourselves on TV as we watch The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon as it airs on NBC.  

1:30AM:  Time for bed after a long, but great first day in the Big Apple.
