"Get the Gold Guy, John!"
As you know, we just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Ten years ago, on our honeymoon, this is one of the beautiful places we visited. As cheesy as it sounds, there is nothing more spectacular than New York City at Christmas time. One of our favorite memories from our trip was the day we visited Rockefeller Plaza. You can just imagine the people around this very popular tourist attraction. Many couples/groups were getting their pictures taken in front of the famous Rockefeller Christmas tree. Matthew and I LOVE to people watch - especially when we are visiting other places. The FUNNIEST lady was desperate to get her picture taken in front of this tree. She caught our attention with her heavy New York accent dictating to her husband just how to get the best photo. She apparently REALLY loved the gold statue as well. Over and over she would repeat, "John, John, get the gold guy, John. John, get the gold guy!" If only I could some how stream the sound of her voice begging for a picture with the gold guy... It. was. HILARIOUS. And now, this phrase from this complete stranger on a random day in NYC, makes it into our weekly conversations one way or another.
