Welcome to New York (you know, the concrete jungle where dreams are made up?)

I DO love that song, btw.  Anyway, we headed right to NYC after my mom’s and boy were we in for a surprise!  So, I had reserved a suite-like room at the W.  I had stayed with my sis there before and had stayed in one too.  We got a GREAT rate, what a normal room would cost, and with Oscar it just works better.  ANYWAY, we get to teh W around 10:30 and we are taken to our suite palace.  It was absurdly awesome!  It was a HUGE living area witha  half bath (in all modern decor, beautiful) with 2 STORY windows and a loft with a bedroom and full bath with a shower and separate tub AND…a TV in the mirror!  I believe Husabnd called that “heaven.”  The room and whole experience was amazing!  Husband Oscar and I had such a wonderful time!  Here are pics of the room.  Thanks W!  It was awesome!

 

 

OK, I LOVED it!  Anyway, while we were there, we walked on 5th Avenue (with Oscar and it was sooo crowded!) and I did not buy a THING!  wootwoot!  Go me!  We also had a lovely dinner at a steak house, worked out, relaxed and just “hung out.”  It was fuuuuun!  OK, now I need to go unpack.  Biyeeeeee!  (for now)

Bad Blogger begone!

Stupid stupid blogger!  So I left my computer charger on the bed rather than in my suitcase, so I could not post while in NYC!  Boo!  BUT, good news, here’s a slew of good posts comin’ at ya!

OK, so

Here were some of the eats as the TGiving table this year…Most were staples, but we had a few newbies this year!

Usual suffing, cranberry crap and candied yams(these were new to the table).  I did not partake in any of those.  TGving really isnt my holday.  I don’t like that kind of food.  Come to think of it, none of the holidays really feature my fav. foods, except-don’t get grossed out-Easter b/c I really love ham!  Never had it growing up but the saltiness is to die for!  I know, it’s gross.  Also on Easter, there is this amazing lasagna my Mom-in law gets.  YUM!  Can’t wait for Christmas (where I was promised it would be featured!)

Cornbread muffins- had about nine all of them.  My mom made hers in heart shaped pans and got the mix with real corn from Trader Joe’s, while the ones I brought were jalepeno cheddar left over from…a while ago…I steered clear of these (the slices under the muffins) and went for the “hearty” ones.  😉

String bean casserole- I dug into that initally but wasn’t really diggin’ it.   My mom used frozen stringbeans instead of the canned processed salty mushy ones I prefer 🙂

A new and DANGEROUS (meaning multiple “seconds”) addition- Sissy’s macaroni and cheese.  Damn you, Sara!  Soooo good!

Here is my lovely balanced and colorful plate (and must-have diet dr. p)

And for dessert- some carrot cake and apple pie (with coffee on the side- tried the coffeemate pumpkin spice…eh.)   Didn’t really have a lot for dessert-was fu-ul!  (and maybe I grabbed another cornbread pre-dessert as well)

Also at the dinner table…was me induring an incredibly awkward conversation started by my dad (surprise, surprise…this seriously happens EVERY time my family approaches the dinner table!  oy!

Also as the dinner table,

Mom and Aunt Susie were there too but they narrowly escaped the camera!

All in all the holiday was a BLAST!  Hope your was amazing as well!
