I loved my second Christmas in New York so I couldn’t wait to post a few of my favorite pictures from the holiday season. So when Amber chose this topic for FMM, I put this post back on the front page. The holidays are such a great time, and this year was one of my favorite Christmases so far.
Having Dad here made me feel at home, and I got to enjoy some pretty cool things with him. Boyfriend got to enjoy some one-on-one time with him too when he took Dad to the Giants game. And we spent a lot of time with his family during the week as well.
I love being a tourist in my own city, and this year I had a great excuse because Dad was here for Christmas. We saw the tree at Rockefeller Center and many other cool sights. Isn’t this tree huge?!
It doesn’t look quite so big when you stand on the other side of the plaza, but it’s still beautiful. Christmas music plays as people ice skate which really sums up Christmas in NY, at least in my opinion.
I got a lot of awesome prezzies, and I can’t decide which one is my favorite. But these Ugg gloves are definitely near the top of the list. They are so warm! I also got a pair of lovely Ugg slippers that I wanted too. And I got the Pandora bracelet I wanted with charms from my bf and my dad and a gift to enhance my workouts which hasn’t arrived yet, a new Bible that I requested from Mom and a Scrabble calendar which I hope to use to improve my already stellar game. 😉 I also received a pair of Coach gloves to match my new coat and a beautiful Coach bag. Boyfriend knew I wanted pearl earrings because I mentioned it once in passing…He is so good! Can we say Merry Christmas to me?? 😉
See my ear?
My boyfriend gave me the bracelet and the tree, and Dad gave me the heart. I treated myself to the clock last night because I want it to represent the time and patience I must have in order to continue losing weight. Plus, I just like to buy pretty things.
Sadie liked her prezzie too. She has not stopped playing with her ball since she got it. I kept interrupting her for pics, and I think she was a little annoyed by it. 😉
As you can see I racked up on the gifts, but I also received tons of love and fun and got to share some too. It was a lovely holiday, and I am looking forward to what the new year will bring. What did you do the celebrate? Did you get any awesome gifts? If so, will you tell me about them?
