I Heart New York
Last week my husband and I took a trip to NYC for 4 days and had a fantastic time! The main reason for going was because I was invited by Bose to attend a special blogger event at the Trump Soho hotel, which I'll share more with you in the coming weeks. This was my 3rd time to New York, but first time going in December. As much as I wanted there to be a little bit of snow (it just makes the Christmas season seem that much more exciting), it was dry, clear and sunny, which was perfect for all of the walking we did. We managed to squeeze in quite a bit of sightseeing and EATING...by the last day I was absolutely exhausted! The first night we stayed at the Trump Soho, which was absolutely beautiful and had the most amazing view from the 34th floor. The remaining nights we stayed at the Best Western downtown, which was decent (and affordable) but definitely not a 5 star hotel! Today I'm sharing a few highlights from our trip. Thanks for letting me share. Do you have any plans to travel over the holidays or in the new year?
Central Park - it was a gorgeous day!
Rockefeller Center - I wanted to go ice skating but at 18 weeks pregnant, I didn't think it was such a good idea!
Some highlights from the ABC Carpet & Home store in Manhattan...6 floors of absolute home decor bliss! My husband even enjoyed strolling through the store (well, for a short time at least).
We had to stuff our faces with a giant ice cream sundae at Serendipity. It was worth every bite (and calorie and fat gram)!
