New York, New York!!

by on β€Ž02-02-2017 03:40 PM

Joe and I made a quick 'couple day' dash up to NYC last week and in case you missed some of the highlights on my Instagram page, I thought I would share them in this week's PMStyle blog. So, here goes, the 'Top Ten' coolest things about our jaunt into the Big Apple:

 

#10: Eating Breakfast with Steve Martin

Around the corner from our hotel was a humble upper east side diner called 3 Guys. Ok let's qualify humble, bc the Upper East side is way swanky so I purely mean, this was not some Michelin Star joint. Joe and I order omelettes, coffee, we sit at the counter. And well you don't say, why yes, that IS Steve Martin seated right behind us in a booth. Green jacket. 10 o clock. Cmon, for real?!? Yes FOR REAL. this selfie which hopefully went unnoticed, came out pretty good. 

 

#9 CNN hailed our cab

 

So we pull up to the corner of our hotel, it's raining and we have just arrived from the train station. We stop, pay, and get out, and who should be waiting curbside, in the rain, eager to score our vacating cab - Christiane Amanpour, that famous CNN international correspondent. She was super nice...and she was wearing what looked like cashmere sweatpants. Just saying.

#8 Couples massage

 

My hubbo is very comfortable in his manhood, meaning he is perfectly happy to don a robe and slippers for a spa service. One more reason to love him.  Ours began w an Italian honey tasting (bc honey is good for your health) and ended with a sigh

#7  Going to the theater

 

We saw The Front Page featuring Nathan Lane, John Goodwin, and a host of other well known actors. It was funny. It was long. Did you know in some theaters, for $35, you can buy "standing room only" seats? You actually have a seat, er standing spot, for the whole show. I never knew. I wore heels. We sat.

#6 The train

 

I love a train. I grew up riding them in Europe so I find something soulful about watching the world zip by as you ride to your destination. 

 

 

#5 Laura Geller Doing my laundry

 

I forgot to take a photo of us, bc I was obviously too busy spilling wine. Laura has neon lips that hang in her living room and a view that is breathtaking. We sat for hours over vino, which I clumsily spilled all over myself so at one point she did my laundry while I sat in an oversized tee shirt she loaned me. Her son Daniel is a love and he spent the night zipping around the apartment on his hover board. #coolkid

 

#4 The city skyline

 

Speaking of great views, when the sun sets at just the right time and angle, and you are standing on just the right corner, you get a view that could be a painting...

#3 Magnolia Bakery

 

We had to buy some treats to bring home to my Mom & Dad and famous NYC cupcakes fit the bill. It took every bit of willpower for me not to dig into these.

#2 The butter dish

 

This video requires little setup, it illustrates one of the simple pleasures, er luxuries, of hotel life. Room service. Breakfast. And a butter dish that is stinkin adorable and fit for a princess...

 

 

#1 visiting Jill Martin behind the scenes at the Today Show

 

this was the number one treat of treats. I wanted to see my girl GILI Jill in action. And what a morning to visit the studio. In a matter of an hour, we ran into Glenn Close, Laurence Fishburne, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee, Natalie Morales, Al & Matt, Katie Couric, and Tamron Hall. Tx girl!!! So much fun.

Thanks for sharing with us.  I love visiting New York.  My late husband and I used to go several times a year.  He'd sometimes go with just a daughter or two to see a show.  There's nothing ike New York.  I especially love watching you and Isaac.  I think you missed your calling.  You should have been an actor.....Oh!  Wait!  When you and Isaac are together, it's like watching a sitcom (a compliment).  You are refreshing to watch.  Don't ever change.

The selfie with Steve Martin is hilarous. 

 

He looks ever so casual sitting there enjoying his breakfast in a green jacket...

Thanks Shawn for sharing your fun gettaway. You are ONE LUCKY WOMAN. My hubby broke his knee before Christmas and we are pretty much stuck. He's in the recliner and rings the bell.  What I would give to go to NY with my husband.

You grew up riding trains in Europe?  I thought you grew up in Michigan.  And maybe in Mexico. Never heard you talk about growing up  in Europe.   You share every other thing in your life over and over and over ...

What an awesome mini-vaca. My version is going to Dallas shopping (2.5 hours away) since that is the closest mecca to my little one horse town in Texas. Looks like y'all had a fab time. I am loving your hair in these pics. You have an awesome  start on a bob!  Pretty soon you will have the chicest bob on TV. It is my fav hairstyle. It is flattering on any face shape. I have worn one for years, after I got over my big 80's hair. LOL Luv ya girl!

I also love NYC and have probably visited there 30 times in my life.  However I can't say I've ever seen a famous person there.  I must not stay in the right hotels. 

Good for you that you had this experience.

Dear Shawn,  first...I want to say I like you & congratulations on your new family.  I am a Christian first and foremost -- which is why I am reaching out to you to share my personal opinion.  I would appreciate it if you could refraim from expressing your "policital points of views" (subtle and not so subtle) ON AIR !!!  I find this is becoming more and more on your shows (the latest talking about how you and Joe spent NYE in front of the TV watching CNN and Anderson Cooper)!!  Actually, all you had to "share" was the fact that you and Joe spent NYE watching TV or the ball drop...whatever !!  You did not specifically have to call out a station or a person's show !!!  This indicates to me that the FOX NEWS channel is not on your list of favorite TV stations!  HOWEVER, it is a source of news (real news mind you) that people do in fact watch.  It's offensive to those of us who actually prefer listening to both sides of stories and making up our own minds.  That said, the real reason I am posting this is because I have been a QVC shopper (big time shopper) for close to 30 years!!!  That may come to an end if this constant "chatter" about politics (innuendos included) do not stop !!!  A shopping channel is NO PLACE to air your positions and I'm not the only one that feels this way.  I would STRONGLY encourage you to keep it "real" and stick to selling products.  You are intitled to have your political views and SO ARE YOUR VIEWERS.  I watch QVC to escape the scathing banter on "news shows" -- so, please just keep this channel what it was / is -- A SHOPPING CHANNEL.  May GOD continue to bless you and your family in this coming year!  Thank you for listening.

Actually, I don’t think anyone cares about your personal views on anything. I think speaking about the products is the important thing and stating facts not opinions. Shawn, you are an attractive woman that can sell a product, but there are many many more hosts that do a far better job. Perhaps someone like Amy or Antonella or Leah could mentor you! That is a great idea!
