This morning, I sit in an Austin airport awaiting my flight for my very first trip to New York City. Remember back in December when I talked about having pneumonia? Then I mentioned just how tough it is to be sick and be a Mom at the same time? You guys know what I’m talking about. There are just a few things that Moms have to go through when we’re sick… things our Mother’s never mentioned. I called it the Stuff Your Mom Never Said You’d Experience in MotherHood Handbook. A lot of you guys could relate.
Well, that post and a low key blogger contest with Vicks, to see who could come up with the most creative post, landed me a trip for two (my husband is rather thankful he gets to come too), to NYC!
Want to hear something REALLY ironic?
I’m sick. As I type this, I’ve been sucking on cough drops and have my Vicks NatureFusion in my carry-on. The doctor seems to think it’s allergies, but nevertheless, I thought it was pretty ironic that I won a trip to NYC from Vicks and now it’s the only thing keeping me going as I travel on that trip.
Anyhow, I’m still excited. I’m still pumped. I’m still caffenated.
I’m a Texas girl. I’ve got a little twang to my talk and the furthest north I’ve ever traveled was when we lived in Charlotte, NC. How do you think this Southern girl will fair in the big apple? We shall see! I can’t wait to update y’all when we return.
I just want to give a BIG thanks to Vicks, once again, for working with us on the Vicks NatureFusion blogger contest and choosing MommaFindings as the big NYC winner. Have you been to NYC? Tell me the ONE place I have to visit while there. I’m a newbie.
Oh and just to give you guys a, first hand, look at how I’ve LONGED to go to NYC since forever, check out this post that I wrote in 2009 about one day visiting the big city.
