If you’ve been within a 50 foot radius of me you’ve heard my proclamation of love for this place. Alex, on the other hand, differs in his opinion of the taxi laden city. The only representation of New York he’s experienced firsthand has come from Home Alone 2 and a plethora of violent city based video games, with various rap lyrics in the mix. This would taint anyone’s imagination, and I think Macaulay Culkin's sub par acting abilities are mostly to blame. But despite his Utah superiority complex (don't get me wrong, I will always and forever love Utah!), he’s taking me to NYC for my birthday. Excuse me, I’ve got a best husband in the world nominee. And the best part? He’s actually kind of excited. I’m bound and determined to change his mind on this trip, and show him why a. The Shake Shack will change his life, and b. that it is the greatest place on Earth.
Next week cannot come soon enough- New York (and Alex) I love you!
