thanksgiving in nyc

thanks to finishing up jury duty in time, i was able to go to new york for thanksgiving
and it did not disappoint!
sadly, i don't have many pictures to document the trip since everyone got sick after the first day.
a lot of time money we had planned to do fun things ended up being dedicated to extra sleep and lots of emergen-c.

but here are a few from the first night while i still had the energy to take out the camera:

lady gaga partnered with barney's and opened up a holiday workshop
there she is above cutting the ribbon with a giant pair of scissors

she took good care of us who braved the cold weather by sending cute mini cupcakes and cocoa
you can't really tell from the photos but the cocoa was topped with glitter!

chad and i in the workshop with our gaga treats

we were out and about in the city when i spotted this billboard across the street..
mathew gray gubler from criminal minds [i love him!]
the picture above was actually taken at the spiderman theater, which we happened to see
we also saw how to succeed in business and daniel radcliffe winked at chad from the stage
it was quite the experience
we ate way too much pizza at grimaldi's and chocolate at max brenner
saw justin beiber perform on the today show [although we couldn't hear him over the screaming]
enjoyed the holiday window displays
saw quite a few celebrities out on the streets
and walked in our soggy wet shoes until we couldn't walk any more

i also got to spend thanksgiving with some of my very favorite people
the nielsens were so kind and generous to invite chad and i to eat with them
and then i lost a coin toss and saw the muppet movie instead of breaking dawn
you win some, you lose some

chad and i had flights back around the same time
so once we got through the insane security lines, we had a farewell treat
which of course we had to document

new york, once again you treated me well
