hello erin »

the big apple.

This past weekend my mom, sister, and soon-to-be sister in law all took a girls trip to the city that never sleeps. It was one awesome trip to say the least- we ate, shopped, saw the sights, hit up the holiday markets, and got to experience the big city in all it’s christmas time snowy glory.

Before we left I surprised everyone with matching PJ’s- it’s not a legit PJ party without lots of leopard print.


We stayed at the Roosevelt in midtown. It was the PERFECT location! Walking distance to 5th ave, Times Square, and Central Park.2013-12-15_00092013-12-15_0007

We ended up doing a “hop on- hop off” bus tour around the city. It was the perfect way to see the sights from the comfort of a covered bus.


We went to see the rockettes in their Christmas spectacular. These ladies blew. Our. Minds. How it’s possible for them to be SO in sync is beyond me. They also had a 3-D portion of the show so we scored some awesome glasses that we all wore over our real glasses.



It’s snowed. And snowed. And snowed. And we froze, froze, froze. But it was so magical being in the city in a snow storm! I definitely learned the magic of a good layering system. And finally got to use the fleece lined leggings my bestie channing scored for me at a gas station in CO a few years ago.


Overall it was such an awesome trip. But I was so so happy to come home and see mike and lex! I missed their faces big time!!

    Courtney - I love visiting New York and I’m sure seeing all of their Christmas stuff was amazing…..but, I can’t do the cold like that! NO way. My first visit was at the end of November and it was downright miserable. Our next trip at the end of April was MUCH better 🙂 You look lovely!
