Movies and Mix Ups: When a Promotion Goes Bad

Image
On Saturday I got up excited to see a premiere of the new Lorax movie.   I got up early. Got dressed. Got my daughter ready. All before 9:30 AM.   This was no small feat. Remember, I have a toddler . My fellow Pittsburgh blogger, Natalie from http://www.thebusybudgetingmama.com/ hooked us up with passes. Unfortunately, we never saw the movie. The premiere turned out to be a promotion gone bad. I was excited to see the movie and very proud that we made it out of the house . I also invited my cousin and her daughter to join us. Nothing is better than free, family fun!

I'm in NYC this weekend, viewing the city, visiting with friends and family, and taking it all in. It's been written about so much because it is true. There is no where like NYC. We left Manhattan and within thirty minutes, English had become a foreign language . We were in the Bronx and Spanish was all around. We even stopped in a bodega to get directions only to find out that the store worker spoke limited English. Go figure?! In any event, I will have much more to update later. I am off to dine and party. I do enjoy living in Pittsburgh , but there's no place like New York !!!
