If you remember I said I was looking to have some more “me time” this year, even if it is just a little bit here & there – a walk at night alone, dinner with friends, etc. It has really helped me in so many ways.
Recently I had an entire DAY away. God, I know it probably sounds horrible but I haven’t had a day to myself in over 4 years. It was a blast. I missed my little guy tremendously, but I knew he was having fun with Daddy & heck, he even got a little gift from Mommy to let him know he was always on my mind….
So…what did I do you ask? I went with my dearest friends into the city to see Late Night with Jimmy Fallon… What a great time!
Seriously – I felt like a kid skipping school. Kim & I met our other two friends on the train – same line, different stop.
We get to Penn – I, “Miss Pees a million times a day” headed over to the bathrooms while our friend Azad hit up the bar & ordered a round of Patron shots! HA! God I love these girls! Ms. Tequila always makes it a point to be a part of our mama’s night out…so day shouldn’t be any different, right?
Soon after we raced over to 30 Rock to stand in line for our tickets for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. We had our reservations in hand & even through it wasn’t a guarantee for tickets, we were close to the front so we had a pretty good chance! After we got our tickets we had some time until we had to come back for the show so we headed out to a local pub for some drinks & appetizers as a quick, light lunch.
As we headed back to get in yet another line based on our numbers, wristbands, etc., we were pulled away & those blue wrist bands were ripped off & greens ones were on – we were now a part of the band bench – #bandbenchbitches
Basically we were on stage when SchoolboyQ had his performance at the end of the show. It was a great experience & a lot of fun – I was so happy to have been able to share it with these mamas!
The line up for the show was eh… Mitt Romney, Mark Rivera and SchoolboyQ…, which I didn’t care too much about because lets face it I was there to see Jimmy Fallon. Yeah – it’s an upstate thing – and apparently I have a type for funny, dorky, thin guys with dark hair – aka my husband too!…. BUT… When Denise found out that morning that James Purefoy was going to be on the show – it just made it 10,000,000 times better! James Purefoy is an amazing actor & his most recent roll as Joe Carroll on The Following is CHILLING!
After the show we went to a great place for dinner… Chips & Salsa. The food was fabulous, but the drinks, specifically their margaritas not so much. The waiter was fantastic – great personality!
My 15 seconds of fame – being on TV w/Jimmy Fallon –
Definitely looking forward to seeing The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon – back in NY!
