4th Visitor of 2013

Okay, so my mom was both the 3rd and 4th visitor of 2013 but she just can't get enough of The Big Apple! Here is a recap of what we did while Mom was here:

I've recently started taking orders for my New York famous cookies and with a somewhat large order Mom was able to give me a hand while learning some of my secrets. ;) 

Speaking of Baking... Mom and I took a cupcake decorating class and I must say these are not bad for our first attempt.

We followed tradition and had dinner at our favorite Mexican spot in Mount Kisco.

While Mom was here we had the delightful task of visiting the DMV and officially removing my California plates on my truck... Bye bye CA!

After a very VERY busy week Mom Joe and I set off to spend the day in the city and then send Mom off to the airport... This was our attempt to get a picture at the Mount Kisco train station.

One of Mom's requests was to go to Dylan's Candy Bar.

My Dad's heaven!

These are the dresses made on Project Runway made entirely out of candy from the store.

Moms first visit to Central Park!

We had a great time! Can't wait for her to visit AGAIN!

Let Laughter Happen

Over the weekend Joe and I were able to see our all time favorite comedian. We purchased these tickets months ago and were extremely excited to see Enrique Iglesias at the world famous Radio City Music Hall.

This was by far one of the best shows we've seen. We cannot wait to see him again!
Below is just a picture of Grand Central Station that I love...

Happy Easter!

So this year is our first Easter in New York... even though our Easter this year was not our usual Easter we did enjoy ourselves.
Joe and I both decided not to sit around on Easter but to get out and enjoy the city. We woke up Sunday morning, made breakfast together, then caught the train. Our first stop was a secret little place on the Upper East Side that offered all you can eat sushi.

Then because Joe and I both gave up candy for lent this year our next destination after lunch was the famous Dylan's Candy Store. 

Surprisingly, Joe and I didn't buy any candy for ourselves but we did come across this beauty:

I know what your thinking but no, we did not purchase this $25 candy bar. Joe had a good time finding candy jars in our future sons names:

No, I'm not pregnant but Joe and I decided sometime ago on three names for our children. Our future daughter's name is not as common so we were unable to find a candy jar to photograph.

After the candy store Joe took me to my favorite bookstore where we picked up some very different additions to our bookshelf...

Our future family was definitely on our mind during the Holiday and we just couldn't resist picking up some of Joe's favorite books as a kid for the bargain price of $1 a book! 

After the bookstore Joe and decided to rest our feet and catch a movie in Union Square. We did miss our families back home but Joe and I both had such an amazing day with each other.

Happy Easter Everyone!
