Double Digits and New York

Perhaps a confusing title, but these are the two things on my mind today.

First, according to my little baby ticker, we are now in double digits until baby arrives. 98 days to go! The 6th month is coming to an end next week. Wow!

Second, we spent the weekend in New York City, trying to take advantage of being able to do things spur of the moment while we still can. We drove up to NYC Saturday morning (about 5 hours). Here's our trip in pictures. Hope you enjoy (and thanks to hubby for always being in my pictures!)

We spent the day walking around the city - it was beautiful but cold.

Had a delicious lunch at Junior's complete with their world famous cheesecake.

Had a FABULOUS dinner at Dylan Prime, a steakhouse in Tribeca that I highly recommend.

Then on Sunday morning, we went to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes.

It really was a great trip, spending time together and getting into the Christmas spirit.

Sunday was capped off by hubby reading his first book to baby before we went to of my favorites from growing up..."Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." I know, not exactly an uplifting book but it made me laugh and warmed my heart! It was a very, very good weekend.

25 Weeks

For your viewing pleasure, baby and me in all our glory at 25 weeks! I'm almost exclusively wearing maternity pants now (they are just so darn comfortable) but am still holding on to some non-maternity shirts (which are getting shorter and shorter by the day as my belly gets bigger and bigger).

Hubby and I are heading to New York City this weekend to celebrate his 32nd birthday. Interesting little fact, yesterday was the 14 year anniversary of our first date! We'll always remember that since it was the day before his birthday, which is actually today.

I'll hopefully have some fun pictures to post afterward. I got tickets today to see the Radio City Music Hall's Rockettes Christmas show. And we have dinner reservations for Saturday night at a steakhouse called Dylan Prime that came highly recommended. I'll let you know how it goes. Can't wait to see the tree and all the lights. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
