Hello! Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving eating too much and lots of laughs with family and friends! We had quite an eventful day starting with a large family breakfast where Cory’s brother shocked us all by showing up for a long weekend vacation from Florida! Crazy!! I am still full from all the wonderful treats and stories I filled up on! Today marks the first day of listening to Christmas music and decorating the house! Tis the Season! For all of you out there Black Friday shopping be careful and stay warm, and make sure to step back and be thankful! I am so grateful for everyone in my life… a loving husband, amazing parents and wonderful in-laws also including a brother and sister thanks to my marriage! makes for a very lucky me!

Darling’s! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend… I was able to take a girls weekend to Chicago with my mom, and did we have a great time… We started the night out dressing up and heading to the John Hancock Building taking the express elevator up to the 96th floor Signature Lounge… we lucked out and got a seat on the outer edge overlooking the city scape and it happened to be sunset! Cheers to a wonderful friendship and to amazing views in downtown Chicago! I have more of this wonderful weekend so stop by again real soon! xx

Hello! Today I want to share with you the last day of our short little vacation to NYC… we got to see and do everything we wanted plus more in our short trip! I hope to go back someday for another adventure and even a show or two! Cory and I decided to take it down a notch on our last day walking to see Rockefeller Center even got to see a few skaters! Tis the Season! Followed by more shopping in Times Square and another walk through Columbus Circle on our way to see the Lincoln Center, Julliard and the chance to pop in and watch a private NYC Ballet Class a once in a lifetime opportunity and one of my all time favorite parts of the whole trip… Getting to see the amazing dancers of the company practice was something I have a hard time explaining… the feeling were just overwhelming there was so much talent and poise… a girl could only dream to look half as good as they do.. I give them all my respect and appreciation and hope that next time we are in town we will be able to watch them perform!

Darling’s! How are you?! I have some more New York City fun to share with you today! Day 3 was a little more laid back than day 2- thank goodness… I loved it all but a girl can get tired of walking! Cory and I headed to Times Square to explore and pop in and out of the many amazing stores that line the square! Disney has castles and tree’s and all sorts of exciting things to see… not sure how you would ever get a child to leave : ) ToysRUs has a full size Ferris Wheel inside that you can actually ride!! Amazing right!! Who can go to Times Square and not check out the M&M World and Hershey! After having seen most of Times square we headed to see Columbus Circle and saw the shops and Julliard… meeting Cory’s cousin for lunch at Indie (crazy good salads) and she took us to the best kept secret Levain Bakery… Cookies that are so big and so yummy…. we just had to get a few different flavors to try…Central Park was beautiful the sun was shinning and the street performers were talented and funny and just down right amazing to watch! Headed back through the theater district and just had to end the day with a Philly from 99 Miles to Philly- YUM!

Hello! I have some more exciting photos to share from our recent trip to New York City! On day 2 we did more than I ever thought possible… walking almost 20 miles (yikes!) We started our day taking the subway once again to Union Square… followed by a short walk to Madison Square Park- we then did pretty much the entire lower east side, including Little Italy, China Town, Financial District, Brooklyn Bridge, Lunch at Grk (amazing!) Wall Street, Statue of Liberty from the Pier, Brookfield Stores, Ground Zero Memorial, Soho followed by a great dinner at Bareburger… whew I am tired just thinking about all the walking we did! But wow was it amazing! We had our friends showing us around, or we never would have made it to all those amazing sights… lucky for us they were willing to show us!! Here are just a few of the many photos that were taken on day 2! Did I mention it was a beautiful fall day!
