My husband and a few other members of his work team won an innovation award for a new medical device (sorry, can't really legally say until it's actually released) at his company in October, and so we were flown out and completely spoiled--a two night stay at the Carlton-Ritz (at Central Park), a mystery dinner party the first night and also the fancy award dinner the last night.
It was a short, but amazing trip, and we tried to squeeze in as much as possible. I actually visited two famous knitting shops! Needless to say, there was a lot of subway and walking trips that weekend. Lots and lots of walking.

We had such a great time. I really didn't think we would be able to go to NYC for many years. So glad he's such a hard worker and is changing lives for the better. *Proud Wife*
