Weekend in NYC

Last weekend, my husband and I spent some time in NYC. We went to his company Christmas party, spent the night at a nearby hotel and did some shopping the next day. We had to see "the tree" of course. So I put together some photo collages of pics I took while we were there.
This was a really cool tree in the hotel lobby.
The tree at Rockefeller. I was trying to find a link to the story behind this year's tree. Basically, it was a couple's (who are no longer alive) very first Christmas tree together. And the wife used to say that one day this tree would be in Rockefeller Center. I wish she were here to see it made it there!

Look at those crowds! And the pretty angels and huge snowflakes on the building.




A necessary visit to Anthropologie at Rockefeller Plaza. Love that store and their really cool displays. I could spend hours in there! But we didn't, we had too many other stops to make. We also spent some time in Bryant Park. There was a great Holiday Fair going on with some really cool and artistic vendors. I didn't get any pics, but they were all set up around the ice skating rink and another beautiful tree. We also walked past the windows on 5th Ave, really cool but another very crowded spot! Our weekend was a lot of fun but it went too fast. Before we knew it, it was time to pick up the kids. We make run back in after Christmas with the kids. We'll see if we have the energy!

Oh man I'm so incredibly jealous!!!! Anthropologie, the tree, the lights, vendors. One day, I will visit there. Of course I also want to visit Tinsel Trading Company. I'll need to save for a year first before I go there!
Have a wonderful Christmas Dawn and the Happiest New Year to you and your family.
