Christmas in NYC

Last week was a hectic one. On Tuesday our babysitter for Thursday (8am-7pm) had to cancel due to having the stomach flu :( I was super stressed because finding another sitter (who you can trust and be in your home ALL day with our love bug) isn't easy. Luckily that same day one of our other sitters who is in grad school called me to say that her classes just ended and to let her know if we ever needed her during winter break. Let's just say I was elated with that news. Prior to finding this out I was searching high and low for someone to come over and meet with us prior to Thursday - but it all worked out - WHEW!! My mom took off from work Friday and came down Thursday evening - and when she is here, all my worries are gone! My dad and Maggie came Friday night so Henry had a friend to play with all weekend!

So Thursday morning Henry and I left the house around 8:30am en route to NYC for the long weekend for Henry's work Christmas party. We first had to stop in the King of Prussia mall area for a meeting of Henry's - so I did what any other childless mother would do and shopped at the mall SOLO! Around 11:30 we headed into the city to grab the train to NYC. The train is always so relaxing to take - no traffic and only 1 1/2 hours and you're in the heart of NYC. We got to our hotel room (right in Time Square) around 3pm and I relaxed and Henry was off to meetings. One of the perks of Henry's frequent travels - we were upgraded to a club level suite and in NYC that means a lot since they try and squeeze as many rooms into the building as humanly possible.

Each night they had dinners planned for us. The food was amazing and meeting everyone was a lot of fun. It's always nice to put faces to the names I'm always hearing about. I've met a bunch of them, but his company keeps growing so there's always someone new. We walked EVERYWHERE and were able to see all the sights the city has to offer. During the day on Friday the guys had meetings so the ladies met up and just shopped and walked all day. We left Friday morning at 10am and didn't get back to our room until 5pm - and we had a blast!

On Saturday we all went to see the Broadway musical Memphis. I didn't know too much about this prior to going but it was such a great show! We were in the 3rd row center and had an amazing experience!

Note: Don't mind my tired eyes in some of the following photos - being 33+ weeks pregnant and staying out until 1:30 am some nights isn't quite ideal!

I'm sure I'm leaving something out - but you get the jist of our weekend! It was a lot of fun but tiring. I spent Monday recovering with a lot of rest!
