Our First Snow!

Excuse my excitement - but --- it SNOWED last night!  Living in So Cal and Las Vegas my whole life has made me extremeley sheltered from cold weather.  However, I am getting a crash course in it this week!!  It has been COLD and WINDY and it SNOWED!  

While it is COLD - I am excited to try out the snow!  Here are some pictures from my walk to work!

This weekend was filled with many Christmasy activities around the city!

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes!  Much better than expected!

The Charmin restroom in Times Square!  Yes - I am weird getting excited about a huge public restroom but....

 - it only is put up before Christmas
- it features fun things to do such as getting your picture taken on a large "throne"
- each bathroom is decorated and is cleaned after each use!
- I LOVE FREE RESTROOMS - probably because I have the world's smallest bladder and am always looking for the nearest place to "go".  

It was not as good as the one two years ago but it was still entertaining!

Shopping at the Holiday Market, near Columbus Circle - note my boots in the pic -- my very first pair!

The famous Chocolate Orange - I absolutely love whacking it on the ground/table, etc!

There was one slight disappointment among all of the fun.....

I LOVE Sarabeth's jams - especially the blood orange marmalade!  So I decided to go to the famous cafe for breakfast located just a few blocks from our apartment.   The boyfriend loved his french toast (which I should have ordered) but I was not too happy with my pumpkin waffle :(  Sounded great on paper but didn't quite deliver.  I was intrigued because it was served with raisins, pepitas, sour cream, and honey...... but it just did not come together.  

This next week should be quite busy!  9 days till I leave for CA!!!  So excited to go home and see my parents and Holly!

Love, Allison
