The "Top of the Rock"

My new ring from Tiffany's!! :)
I'm here! I'm here! We returned home last night from a fabulous trip to New York City (my Christmas present from Ben) and I just had to blog about it so I don't lose what little amount of readers I have left after this blogging drought. :)
Ben and I left at the crack of dawn Thursday morning---literally, the plane left at 6:15 am and we had checked into our hotel and were on our way to breakfast by 9am. Not bad! We stayed at the Marriott Renaissance in the heart of Times Square, and could not have been in a better location. The hotel was perfect and had great views of Times Square--I'd definitely stay there again and recommend it to anybody planning a trip to NYC. We packed as much as we could into the 3 days/nights we had there, and besides the bitter COLD weather, wouldn't change a thing. Some highlights include eating at Nobu (my FAVORITE!!) and Ouest, seeing Phantom of the Opera and Wicked (loved, loved, loved it!), going to the top of Rockefeller Center for a killer view of the city, doing an amazing Foods of NY tour in Greenwich Village (highly recommend this), touring the Guggenheim (not into art and most of it was very strange, but my architect hubby loved the building), shopping til we just about dropped, and getting the best 30th birthday present from Tiffany's! Baby boy must have enjoyed New York because he didn't stop kicking/bumping/wiggling the whole time. He's the only one of our children who came with us, and was very well-behaved if I do say so myself. :)
My wonderful in-laws kept the children for us and it was so nice to enjoy ourselves and know that Grayson and Emma Claire were having just as much fun at home with Gee Gee and Pop Pop. Thanks again, Nancy and Carroll!
