change of plans

hey everyone!

I’m back from New York, under some pretty crazy circumstances.  Yesterday, we went to the city, all was well and good.  I saw Times Square, Madame Tussades, Wall street, and ground zero…yada yada yada.  Then here comes the twist – the HUGE snow storm expected to hit my town was blowing in and the forecast was looking pretty bad.  When we finished up in the city yesterday, we headed to our hotel in NJ and our chaperones had contacted my school’s administration and they said we needed to leave ASAP.  Low and behold, at 5:30 a.m. this morning, we were on the road headed south to beat the storm – meaning no more NYC, no more shopping, no Rockefeller Center.  Our bus finally got back around 2:00 today after 8 hours on the road!  The roads were horrible and we had to drive at such a slow pace.  Anyways – I was greeted at home by like 2+ feet of snow outside and it is still coming down.

Sadly, I didn’t get anything in NYC.  I’m so bummed, because I had all these plans to buy some clothes, but mother nature decided otherwise :/

Before I leave you all, I’ve got some looks from Wednesday and Thursday, and, of course, some of my adventures in the big apple.

Have a wonderful night – be safe if you are stuck in the snow!


  1. Aw man! sorry to hear about your trip! Maybe they'll reschedule or something :/ At least you got to see some things. I've never been to NYC!!!

  2. oh snow, ruins everything! But it sounds like you hit the most important spots (aka, toys r us) :)

  3. sorry you didn't get to shop girl!! but at least you got to do some cool stuff while in nyc. have fun playing in all that snow!!

  4. Awww I'm sorry your plans were ruined my love! But looks like you still had a great time. And I'm loving your outfits :)

    Hannah xo

  5. gorgeous photos love!!
    I am glad you enjoyed your NYC adventure! EVen if plans were changed!
    your out fits are fab as always. xoox

  6. Awwwww Emily, that's so sad but at least you get to visit NYC even without the shopping. I knew you planned to do a lot of shopping but there will be a next time.

    Now, go and play in the snow.

  7. Looks like you had fun :) That's a total bummer about the storm though. It's so full of spirit in the city this time of year...

    Much love!

  8. Sorry to hear you had to leave early!.. Looks like you had a blast anyway =)

    ... lovin' the wax brangelina :P


  9. wow those wax things look soo real! crazy! hope u had fun girl!

  10. bummer you guys had to leave early, but at least you did get to do a few things. i guess it only means you must go to new york once again :)
    hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  11. Argh that sucks!

    I went to NY last year and took pic with the Wax People too! Did you saw the Rachel Ray one?? Haha and the Britney Spears one? She was doing a strip-tease lol.

    Oh a Barbie House! But MY dream was the Hello Kitty House (or was it Sanrio House)? Close to the 'Believe it or Not' exposition, I don't know if you saw it. :)


  12. Emily, I'm so sorry to hear that your plans got ruined! But, good things come to those who wait, and I'm sure you'll have the opportunity to go on a huge shopping spree through New York City at a later date when the weather was better! And the bright side? You took some amazing pictures at Madame Tussad's!!

    Don't worry about the prizes arriving before Christmas - before, after, it doesn't matter to me. When they get here they get here - just enjoy the holiday! No stressing!! :)

  13. hope you enjoyed your stay! I got caught in the snowstorm too, without my hat and the wind demolished my umbrella. Everyone's hoping school will close 'cause of the snow but I doubt it may happen. Madame Thessaud's (probably spelled that wrong) is always a fun place to go (My old summer camp took us there often), did you play American Idol? Well looks like you had fun, as for me i'm pretty snowed in at the moment.

  14. girl you're rocking the sassy n cute outfits, love it! dont know if you're the emily who's new-ish on my blog and/or recently asked me a questoin in the comments about if ive always been fit. yes. but for some reason probably thinking it's a diff Emily :)
