Sharing Christmas in NYC with you!

Every year my family and I do our annual trip to New York City to take in all the Christmas sights and decorations. It’s always a great time and we’ve got our little routine we follow. We start off in Penn Station and then walk to Macy’s and then Lord and Taylor to see the Christmas windows. Then it’s to the Research Library on 5th and 42nd to check out the exhibits and lovely reading room as well as Bryant Park, the Pond and shops behind the library.

Sadly, we got to the library too early this year and it was closed, but that made for some extra time for something old – St. Patrick’s Cathedral – and something new – a walk through Tiffany’s and Cartier to check out some bling.

While we were near St. Pat’s, we hit Rockefeller Center to see the tree, promenade and skating rink as well as the NBC store. My daughter is totally in love with PSYCH and they have collectibles from that and a number of other shows.

Then it was walk up Fifth Avenue, including Tiffany’s and Cartier (sigh, such pretty things) and over to Grand Army Plaza and Central Park. We hurried up to Columbus Circle and then pushed on until we were in Lincoln Center where we had tickets to see THE NUTCRACKER. It was lovely as allows and after a quick dinner, it was back to Penn Station and the trip home on the train.

So much to see, but it was a lot of fun. Just a bit chilly with weather in the twenties, but at least it was sunny and pretty nice outside.

I hope you enjoy these photos! If you can’t see the slideshow, you can click here to see the album.

Guilty Pleasure Freddie Prinze Jr.

Copyright Miramax PicturesI’m back and I want to thank all of you who were able to drop by and visit with me at the RWA Conference. It was a pleasure meeting you and being able to share a little time with you. I’ll have some photos for you tomorrow!

I was exhausted when I got home, but it was great to be able to hang with my family again. One thing we did was catch up on some our favorite shows that I’d missed while I was away, including PSYCH (so much fun!). One of the shows featured Freddie Prinze Jr. as a nerd-in-hiding which of course prompted today’s Guilty Pleasure.

There is a boy-next-door dimpled cuteness to Freddie that is so hard to resist! My favorite movie of his is SHE’S ALL THAT with Rachel Leigh Cook (who also did some time on PSYCH as Shawn Spencer’s girlfriend). Yes, I know it’s that silly Cinderella girl-takes-off-the-glasses-and-becomes-hot story, but sometimes you just need to believe in the fairy tale!

Do you have a favorite Freddie Prinze movie? Do you hate or love those fairy tales kinds of movies? Inquiring minds want to know!
