Obsessed with NYC (catch up post)

My mom turned 60 in August 2010 and her one birthday wish was to go to New York City. So, my dad being the awesome guy that he is, said he would pay for mom and myself to go to NYC for a weekend!!!  We decided to plan the trip in early December so we could experience NYC during the Christmas season!

Let me just say....I am officially obsessed with all things New York City!! It was the most amazing trip! We had such a great time, eating, sightseeing, and my favorite, shopping on Canal Street. We got to see the Rockettes Christmas Show, which was awesome by the way! We did all things touristy and enjoyed every minute of it!! The only and I mean only downside was the temperature. When we arrived on Thursday evening it was relatively cold...high 30's...cold but bearable. Friday was the same, low in the 20's & high in the 30's. But by Saturday the temp dropped, wind kicked up and we were miserable!!! The wind just cuts right through you. We have since decided that our next NYC trip will be planned during the Spring or Fall. Maybe Daddy will pay for that one too :)!!!
