City That Never Sleeps

One of my all time favorite places to visit.  What's not to love??  The theater, the restaurants, and the shopping.  Oh, the shopping!!  And for me, the only way to go to NYC is with my sister.  Since she lived in NYC for 18 months and goes there almost 2 weeks out of every month now, she KNOWS the city.  Not just the tourist spots.  But the absolute BEST spots.  
Our weekend to New York was so much fun. It started with us jumping on an early flight the night before we were supposed to leave because it was supposed to snow all day the next day.  We pulled up to the Waldorf Astoria around 1:00 a.m. and woke up in the city that never sleeps.  

When we woke up the next morning, it was snowing and cold.  So what to do but shop, eat, and go to see 2 shows!! We headed to TKTS in Time Square but the line was so long that we just went directly to the box office to buy tickets.  
First up was Beautiful, the Carol King Musical.  My favorite of the weekend (Although all the shows we saw were amazing).  

We shopped, shopped and shopped some more eventually stopping in Bryant Park to have dinner at Celsius and visit the Christmas Market before going to see our 2nd show, Pippin.  

The next morning Holly had made us appointments at Dry Bar, a salon that only washes, dries, and styles your hair.  It was such a nice treat to get our hair done.  After dry bar, we walked up 5th Avenue and looked at all the windows all  decorated for Christmas.  My favorite windows were at Tiffany's, of course.

We had brunch at Barney's and then headed to Tory Burch.  Note to Chris: these are not all my bags!  Hehehe.  Holly styled me for this shot, and two of the three bags belong to her.  

Matilda was our 3rd show of the weekend and oh my word, it was amazing.  Kind of hated that I didn't have the kids with me to see it.  But I did buy the soundtrack and shirts from the show for them.  

Time Square at night!

Dinner at Ruby Foo's!  Yummy!

Our last show for the weekend was to see the Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes.

Fantastic weekend I will never forget with the best sister EVER!
