End of the Macy's Parade, with all of the other balloons in the distance.

Since I have been living in NY for the last four months, I have gone to three major parades in NYC. Seriously? Not to mention Nyack (the town I live in aka the cutest town on the planet) has a parade about every 2 weeks, awesome.

The first was the Yankee Parade in November. Just in case you have been living under a rock, the Yankees won the World Series. Lis, Nate and I went to the parade about an hour before it started, assuming we could get a good spot and see all the hot Yankees. Not so easy. We were basically walking through the streets of NYC along with a million other Yankees fans, just following the chanting crowds. It was quite an amazing experienced. I have never seen so many people soooooo jazzed about anything! Except for me being jazzed about Hugh, Vicky B., and Sassy...just saying. We did not get to see any Yankees up close, but it was a shitshow of awesomeness. Also very random, we ran into Amy amongst 1 million people. Welcome to New York my friends, welcome to New York.

Next was the amazing, emotional Veteran's Day Parade. I took the day off work to go see Amal walk in the parade as a Vet. It was spectacular! Tony Curtis was the Grand Marshall and there were Mounties!! I love Canada!!! (Not as much as USA, obvs). It was soooo amazing seeing all the Vets watching and stopping other Vets in the street to shake their hand and chat. It was very emotional and really gave me great sense of Patriotism! I am so proud of my Dad, Amal, Nate and all of the other Vet's out there doing what they do. Thank you, and I love you!

Last, but certainly not least, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Yeah, I just said that. Amy, Becca and I were there there, in person, super close, having a spas attack!! It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in my life. It was so surreal being there when we always watch it on tv. The balloons were amazing and all of the celebs made me go crazy! I love celebrities!! So, you can only imagine how amped I was to see so many! Carly Simon, Cindy Lauper, The Roots and Jimmy Fallon, Ziggy Marley, EJ and Hope from Days of Our Live (hahahaha), Miss America, Andrea Bocelli, and about 20 others, that I cannot remember at the moment. It was amazing! Believe it or not, it was easier to walk around and find a spot at this parade than the crazy, insane Yankee Parade.

I guess I should now consider myself a Parade connoisseur... Enjoy the Pics!!
