on wednesday we took a special trip to the city to soak in everything christmas, shop and just hang out. we took a little bit different route than usual and decided to put off shopping too much and may i just say, best decision ever! it's so much less stressful to simply browse around and take everything in (for us, that is!). although, i didn't subject myself to anthropologie because if there's no room in the budget for it, that's just plain cruel. and truly, at six months pregnant, i haven't felt like flexing my shopping muscles in the stores this year.. it has been a very amazon christmas thus far :)
when we're in the city during christmastime, we love to stroll by the tree, grab a cappuccino or italian soda at the coffee shop by the ice rink, stroll down maiden lane and check in at gumps to look at all the beautiful christmas decor. we ended up seeing a movie too and i managed to find every decent bathroom in the surrounding area (i recommend the westin, gumps, nespresso and the daily grill!). we ended the night with dinner and topped it off with the most lovely and decadent chocolate dessert.
ham face :)
we just love christmas!
what are some of your favorite ways to soak in the christmas season??
