2015 – Carie’s Birthday Wish

Many of you know that I started a new job earlier this year.  It takes me to New York City at least once each month (I’ve been twice in 3 weeks, but that’s another story).  For her birthday this year, Carie talked repeatedly about wanting me to go to the Today Show Plaza in New York and hold up a birthday sign during the Today Show.  I thought she was joking at first, but she continued to mention it.

When I found out that I had to be in New York on her birthday week, I decided what the heck.  Madison & Mackenzie conspired with me to create the sign.  I snuck it into my luggage and made plans to hit the Today Show early one morning of my trip.

I showed up before dawn today not knowing what to expect.  Turns out, I was the first person in line.  I grabbed a spot on the rail and hoped that I’d get in one of the camera shots.  The girls tipped Carie off and they recorded the show and watched for the birthday wish.  I’ll figure out how to save the video off of the DVR, but in the meantime here are a few photos of Carie’s Birthday Wish.

Here’s what it looks like to be first in line.  You line up at this random light pole, cause that’s what the security guard told me to do.

One of the producer’s took this photo for me.  The sign says “Happy Birthday to the real Carie Bradshaw”.  (Part of it is hard to read.)


Here’s me and Al Roker wishing Carie a Happy Birthday!
