Weekend in Pictures

Hello there loves! How have your weekends been? I apologize for my small hiatus but I'm back and ready to blog. Haha. First and foremost, I would love to thank Toni from ssssht for featuring me on her Blogloving Friday. You can see the post here as other bloggers and I talked about our Christmas wish lists. My weekend was pretty awesome aside from one hiccup. My mother fell down some stairs and sprained her ankle but thankfully she's alright. She was a trooper though as she went into the city with us anyway and went to Macy's on 34th St. I didn't want to make her walk all the way to Rockefeller Plaza to see the tree as it's quite a walk from 33rd because that would be just cruel but I'm glad she was able to go into the city with us and enjoy the Christmas decor as it adorned the streets and inside Macy's. On Friday, I went to the mall to finish Christmas shopping with Brett and on Saturday, we went into the city with my mom. On our way there, we saw a tree in my town made out of plastic bottles and it looked so cute on display.

I love that they had a picture of John Lennon under the tree. =]

From there, we took the train to see the Macy's windows. It was hard to snap pictures because of all the people that crowded the displays but it was so cute! It told the story of Yes, Virginia as she wanted to know the truth about Santa Claus.

The detail that goes into these windows is just insane. I apologize for the terrible quality of the picture by the way. It was difficult to get a good shot.

We then went into Macy's to see Santa's Land on the 8th floor but the crowds of people made it nearly impossible. I did manage to get a picture of the beautiful decorations in Macy's and some of the stocking stuffers that were on display.
I've always wanted a huge lollipop like the one above but knew I would never be able to finish it. Luckily, I was able to get a picture with it. =] It was from Dylan's Candy Bar.

Due to the ridiculous amounts of people that crowded the streets, we took one last shot and went home to watch a movie and eat homemade pizzas.
I love this picture with Brett even though he was freezing and not really in a mood for pictures but the picture captures how beautiful the lights were near 34th street.

All in all, this weekend turned out to be just what I needed. It ended too quickly and I was unable to see friends from home that I would have liked to see but I'll be home in 3-4 days for three weeks so I'm sure I can make it up to them. =] How were your weekends?

Oh no, that's definitely no good about your mum, I hope she has a really quick recovery. She must be a trooper if she headed into the city with you guys - wow, insane. The plastic bottle tree is so cute I've never seen anything like it - except one time when I was in Hong Kong there was a tree made out of Barbie Dolls haha. It looks like you guys had a fun time, and it's so good to get into the festive spirit. (:
