New York, New York!

Last Thursday I met my mom in New York City along with my boss, her daughter, a co-worker & her sister. It was a quick trip - we left Sunday but we fit tons in those 2 days and it was so much fun! I forgot my camera on Friday...I was in shopping mode rather than tourist mode. We went to Chinatown, Macy's & the Hard Rock in Times Square for dinner. And let me just note that Saturday it was down right FREEZING...I was convinced I had frost bite on my fingers and toes...I guess I didn't, but whatever it was still cold!

Saturday we had a very busy day...keep in mind we walked to and from all of these places! We were very tired Saturday night!!
Christmas market in Bryant park
Grand Central Station (they also had a Christmas market inside)
Walked down 5th Avenue by all of the fancy shops & Rockefeller Center
Central Park
FAO Schwartz & Apple Store
John's Pizzeria - YUM
Rockefeller Center at night....biggest mistake ever to go there on a Saturday night before x-mas!!
Ended the night @ a brewery near times square

Yummy looking cupcakes @ Bryant Park!

Soo many Santas around NY that day - it was for real - look it up!

Pretty buildings @ Ave of the Americas & 42nd street

Mom & I
  Sunday morning mom and I got up and made our way to Grand Central Station to catch our train to Connecticut. Sadly I don't have any pictures from Connecticut - I didn't even take any pictures of the snow :( Just on my cell phone. We spent Sunday - Wednesday with my grandpa and came home Wednesday night. It was a great trip but I'm glad to be back home and ready for Christmas!!
