A New York State of Mind: Part 2

It’s the last day of the month! Wow! Before November is gone, I wanted to share the second part of the New York trip my hubby and I took a couple weeks ago. Click here for the full recap of day one!

We slowed things down a tiny bit for the remainder of our trip, but the fun didn’t stop for a moment.

A Thankful Heart

Is it just me or did the month of November fly by?! I know we have a few days left, but we’ll be in December before we know it! 

Before welcoming a new month, I wanted to join Aleigh Moore‘s linkup for the final installment of her ‘A Thankful Heart’ series. You can check out my previous entries here and here

Now let’s get to a few more reasons why I’m thankful!

Holiday Hosting With Stella Cheese

Now that Thanksgiving is over we can all relax right? Hahaha. WRONG!!

The Christmas season is upon us which means decorating, holiday music, shopping, planning, and of course, hosting some fun and festive gatherings! 

Christmas Eve dinner is at our place for the second year in a row, and as I consider different menu options I want to have great appetizers in place. A cheese board is a definite go-to in my book, and this year I’ll be using one of the many flavorful options from Stella Cheese!

Delightful Dining at Atrio Wine Bar & Restaurant

My husband and I visited New York City a couple weeks ago. You can read more about our first full day in the city here, but our trip really began that Friday night. 

As soon as we dropped our bags we hopped on a train to Conrad New York, located in Manhattan’s famous Battery Park City. We had a reservation at their dine-in restaurant, Atrio Wine Bar & Restaurant.

There the feasting began!

A New York State of Mind: Part 1

I can’t believe that this time last week I was in New York City with my husband! We were there to celebrate my birthday which was on the 14th, but the joke was on him. I decided to do a reverse surprise and I planned this weekend getaway without him having a clue!!!

I’d been to New York prior to this trip, but my last visit was about 10 years ago. This was my hubby’s first time!!!

Our trip was wonderful in so many ways. Not only do I want to share some photos from our first day there, I also want to link up with Aleigh Moore’sA Thankful Heart’ series because I’m truly grateful for the time we had. I missed last week’s linkup because of the trip, but you can see my first entry here. Visit Aleigh’s blog if you want to join the fun, and I hope you enjoy part 1 of our experience!
