i have been having a rather new york week.
wednesday, my friends and i braved the torrential rain to see the rockefeller tree lighting. of course, we didn't get there three hours before, as we should have if we actually wanted to see it being first lit, but we saw it eventually! nonetheless, we had an adventure, saw the saks fifth avenue window display and got a hot dog. holiday cheer was everywhere. christmas time in the city is the greatest. i wouldn't want to be anywhere else (except maybe at home in connecticut getting and decorating our christmas tree!)
the gorgeous tree came from connecticut and has over five miles of led lights decorating it.
the next night, my mom took emily and me to see wicked for emily's birthday. i had the slightest idea of what the musical was about and was happily surprised. emily has been singing ever since.
and if you wanted to know what the new 2010 new year glasses look like, voila!
but what will they do for 2011? it must take a year to figure that one out!
oh! and of course, there were chestnuts roasting on an "open fire" (on the side of the hot dog stand).
this weekend brought many lively adventures with new and dear friends and also hours upon hours of lounging around my apartment catching up on sleep. it ended with dinner, a movie and hot chocolate in lovely company. oh and buying santa suits. more on that another time.
