NYC pt. 2

 On the second day of our trip we took a train to Mahwah, NJ to visit family and to see my cousin kick some serious b-ball butt!
  Isn't my niece the cutest!!
On the third day we went uptown to The Museum of Natural History
(Mark was excited to pin point the shooting locations from the movie "Night at the Museum", LOL!)
 Before the sunset we crossed over to central park
Strawberry Fields
and then it was off to a yummy dinner and dessert at Serendipity (I recommend visiting this place after you've had dinner elsewhere, what we had for dinner was ..bleh)
 The Sundae was say the least 

Part 3 coming soon...

Our anniversary trip to NYC - Part 1

To celebrate our 3rd year wedding anniversary Mark and I took a trip to the city .

The view from our hotel in Midtown
We were exhausted from the early morning flight but we hit the road anyway towards Rockefeller Center.
I was so excited that we arrived on the last day of the famous tree.
 These folks camped out (in the cold, ill add) for two days just to see Kelly Clarkson and Charles Barley host SNL
 Smooching up Matt Lauer at the NBC gift shop
Stopping by the famous Magnolia Bakery.. YUMM!
 After having a delicious red velvet cupcake we finally gave in and headed back to the hotel for a nap.

When we woke up we went to times square to visit the Madame Tussauds wax museum.
 Later on we headed back to Rockefeller Center to see the lights at night and have dinner at Del Friscos Grill.

  More pictures to come...

"Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite.."

I often stop to think "why me?" and of course, I then take a minute to thank god for all the blessings he's brought to my life. Today I thank him for my greatest gift..

3 years ago on this very day we made the most important decision of our lives and vowed to grow old together, it was magical...

Happy hour and a baby,

On the Monday after ringing in the New Year I enjoyed a little date with my some of my dance girls at Shuckers on the beach. It's so difficult for us to keep up with each other since things are so hectic when we're in rehearsals or class and our personal lives make it even more complicated to see each other outside of dance-related events. We also got to meet a future member of the troupe - baby Valentina!
 The view was gorgeous, the cocktails were delicious, and the company was superb!
