christmas time in the city

Last weekend I got to go to New York City with Ryan, Dad, Mom and Grandma Potter. We had a grand time. It was the first time for my Dad and Grandma. We squeezed alot into the 4 days we were there.


We played touriest by seeing most of the "must see's".

Central Park. Wicked. Times Square. Manhatten Temple.
Rocfeller Center. Empire State Building.
Staten Island Ferry out to see the State of Liberty.
China Town. Soho. Grand Central Station. Washingotn Square Garden.
Financial District. Ground Zero. Tried to go to Regis & Kelley, no luck. lots of subway rides.

Christmas was every where I looked and I loved it! So many Christmas trees all over the city! I love this time of the year and NYC definitely know how to get into the Christmas spirit!



and of coarse, the tree at the Rockefeller Center

Oh I LOVE New York City!

We ate ate and ate lots of delioues food.
Shake Shack. Rice to Riches. Pink Berry.
Jr. Cheesecake chocolate mousse. Lombardis Pizza. Magnolia Bakery red velvet cupcake.
Kat'z Deli Pastrami sandwhich, Nutx 4 Nutz. Hale and Heartly Soup.
yummm nyc has the best food



Shake Shack

I got to see my dear friend Cynda her hubby Ben and meet there cute friends Mike & Kristen.

We also got to see Scothcy, no MB sadly.

oh and I cant forget our 3 celeb sightings...

Louie Vito pro snowboarder, Crystal Bowersox- American Idol, the "angry elf"- Elf


It was a perfect weekend spending lots of much needed time with my parents and grandma, they are the best! We had loads of fun exploring the city, and not getting lost once! I am pretty proud of that accomplishment, I mean I get lost here in Corpus. But thanks to the iTrans NYC app I download we made it around just fine, it was a life saver. If you are planning a trip to New York and need help on the subway it worth every penny of the $3.99. December was the perfect time to visit, seems like a lot of other people thought that too. Saturday night at the Rockerfeller Center was not a good idea crazy crazy crowded. Next time I think I would like to see the city in the summer and just relax in Central Park and the Met the whole time, until then good-bye NYC!
