3rd Visitor of 2013

Two days after Valentines Day and three days after Mallory and Brian left we had another visitor fly into town. (What is with these crazy west coasters that want to visit the New York in the dead of Winter?) 

My Mom came back for her 3rd round of the big city! This trip was not like the others because we had to spend most of the time indoors and not running around town like usual. We visited our favorite used bookstore in the city and then had a nice lunch. 

While my mom was here I had to take a trip to my companies location in Queens and my mom decided to come with. (Please note I have NEVER driven anywhere in New York except right around where we live) It was an experience but we made it! The photo above was from the parking lot in Queens... amazing!

 While my mom was here she just had to try out my new Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.

We didn't do much this trip but she will be back soon and can't wait for the weather to warm up!

Valentines Day

This year we had a very full schedule and decided not to do much for Valentines Day. On the actual day I was scheduled to work overtime and get home around 7:00pm. My work day was extra stressful and I decided to leave work and get home by 6:00pm instead. I got home just as Joe was walking up. He then informed me that he had to grab the car and he would be back... oh and that I ruined everything by coming home early. (He was kidding of course) ;) He returned and told me I was not allowed in the kitchen for any reason. In the next few minutes he began to bring me the following:

The best most relaxing Valentines Day ever! I am both a very spoiled and very blessed wife.

2nd Visitors of 2013

Joe and I were excited to hear that two of our very good friends were going to visit us this February. Although February is not the most ideal month to visit the east coast we were excited to show them around. Unfortunately, their visit was cut short a day because of Blizzard Nemo but we made the most of their remaining time.

While Mallory and Brian were here Grand Central Station was celebrating it's 100th anniversary!

We got to see the 9-11 memorial

and experience Times Square at night

We were so excited to have them visit and cannot wait to see them again soon!
