NYC Winter Fun

Yummy scones from Alice's Tea Cup

Warming our bones after a hard morning of Ice Skating

Ice Skating at Central Park

When my mother came to visit we had a full itinerary planned while she was in town, as I'm sure most of you do when you have a guest in town.  She has always wanted to go ice skating in central park.  An enhanced desire came about, of course, by the movie Serendipity.  (I must admit mine was too, love that movie!)  So we made our way to Wollman Rink, and then to Alice's Tea Cup on the Upper West Side, for what I personally think are some of the best scones around.  I think Mom agrees :-)  What fun winter activities have you been up to?  Do you have fun holiday traditions?

Off Broadway Show

He fell into toxic goo in New Jersey, and now is a super mutant. haha. Sounds odd, I know, but I promise hilarious.  
Drinks allowed in your seats, no intermission, and they don't really care if you turn your cell phone off or not.  Yuuuuuup, that's how you are greeted when seeing Toxic Avenger at New World Stages.  Definitely not your typical night of theater.  Okay, so maybe it's not a life changing piece of theater, but was I entertained? Hell yes.  Especially on a Monday night when Broadway stages are dark, why not check out Toxic Avenger?  My friend Brenden and I found ourselves laughing, clapping, and toasting with a jack and ginger as performers worked the stage.  Fun, fun, fun.  Tomorrow I'm off to see A Little Night Music with Katherine Zeta Jones, and Angela Lansbury! Stay tuned!

Holiday Cheer

My boyfriend and my first Christmas tree! yay

Wonderful gingerbread constructions by friends :-) 

Decorating the tree, aaaaaand the holiday season is official! 

On the 1st of this month, I had some of my close friends over to make sugar cookies, decorate the tree, have food, drinks, and to be merry.  It's just not Christmas without our annual holiday cheer gathering, and my great grandmother's sugar cookie recipe.  Sorry, can't share.  Do you and your friends and family have any special holiday traditions?? Love to hear! Maybe we can incorporate them next year.
