New York City

I love the city but I exspecially love the city during Christmas time. There is something that is magical about it. The crowded city streets, crazy crowds, and decorations all over the city always seem to put me in the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite parts of Christmas time in New York City is the Christmas Markets throughout the city. My absolute favorite is the Bryant Park Christmas Village. You can buy ornaments, accessories, and my personal favorite is the food. The fried pickles and Nutella Banana Crepes are my favorite. This year I went to see the Radio City Rockettes for the second time. I have loved the Rockettes since I was a little girl and I am so happy I was able to see them again. We decided to do the Top of the Rock and that never disappoints. The views from the Rockefeller Center are breathtaking. It’s my favorite view of the city.Our final night we did a NYC harbor tour, which I have never done, and loved it. The tour stops in the financial district, Brooklyn, and the Statue of Liberty. We went at sunset so we got to see the sun go down over the city and it was just beautiful.I feel really blessed to have the opportunity to go to New York. I’ve been three times in the last three years and I never get tired of this beautiful city. 

One of my new favorite places for New York style cheesecake is Eileen’s Special Cheesecake. So yummy!

We had such a great time in the city. I hope you have all had a great Thanksgiving vacation and hope you enjoyed taking a peek at mine!

New Orleans

We drove until late last night to arrive in New Orleans for a quick trip. We stayed overnight at a hotel and in the morning went down to the French Quarters. Of course we had to stop by Cafe Du Monde for some Beignets. It was so good!

Next stop was the French Market for a bit of shopping. This place was actually pretty cool. They had all sorts of music playing and everyone was selling various things. Plus it seemed like there was a saxophone player on every corner. The French Quarter also had different local food places that sold typical New Orleans food. It was a very fun experience to be here I will say that!

My outfit today was very simple since I’m traveling so much. My top is Target, my jeggings H&M, and my shoes are also from target.
