More Christmas Cheer

Last week was full of even more Holiday fun!

On Wednesday I went into the city to meet my dad and sister for lunch in Bryant Park. We ate at the Bryant Park Grill, which is always one of my favorites.

During the holidays a Winter Village gets set up in the park with lots of shops, a skating rink, and a big tree. Even though I didn’t have time to look around this time, I went last year and there are so many cute things to look at!


Here is my sister and I in front of the tree!

On my walk back to the train, I passed Baked By Melissa and had to pop in for some cupcakes! I got a box of six:


Triple Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate PretzelHot Cocoa (mini of the month), Cookie Dough, Tie Dye

These are awesome cupcakes and if you haven’t tried them you haven’t lived.

On Friday, I met my Little and my Little Little at Peddler’s Village!


Peddler’s Village has a ton of cute stores and bakeries and the whole area is decorated for Christmas!



They even have the gingerbread house contest displayed in the gazebo


I would definitely suggest either Peddler’s Village or New Hope if you want a quick holiday getaway!

Empire State of Mind (or not)

Yesterday the boyfriend and I went to Manhattan to see the Empire State Building! Or we were supposed to because we’ve had tickets for over and year… but I walked out the door without them.


Instead, we met my dad at the Bryant Park Grill for a fancy lunch. I had a stir fry salad, which was good, but the best part was dessert. Behold, the Chocolate Peanut Butter S’more:


It was great.

So we didn’t have a plan, but since the New York Public Library is right behind the grill, we decided to go there. It is a beautiful building inside and out.



They have a great exhibit going on called The ABC’s of It: Why Children’s Books Matter. It was a great look at what books teach children, and it made me pretty nostalgic. You can see things like the original Winnie the Pooh stuffed animals, a life-size setup of Goodnight Moon, and art inspired by different stories like Where the Wild Things Are.

After the Library, we went back to Bryant Park and watched some intense ping pong! Thanks for an awesome day Jack!
