* WARNING - this is going to be a long one, so if you're in a hurry come back later! :)
TGIF! I always dread weeks after vacation - they seem to drag on FOREVER! Since I finally found time to upload the rest of our NYC pictures, I thought it would be a good time to fill you all in on what we did Friday, Saturday, & Sunday while we were there (I already posted about Thursday here).
Friday we had originally planned to go to The American Museum of Natural History; however, we all got a late start so we decided to just use this as a shopping day instead. This actually worked out very well because it ended up raining on Sunday so we went to the museum then. Back to Friday - I got to go to my beloved Bloomingdale's as well as Belly Dance Maternity (FYI, like everything else, maternity stores are WAY better in NYC than in Nashville). The husband got to go to a few places he wanted to visit as well, including the NHL store (a woman must have been involved in designing this store because it had a Starbucks inside - this was my saving grace). I didn't buy anything at Bloomingdale's (they don't have a maternity section apparently); however, I did almost get Abby her first North Face (yes, they totally make them in 0-3 months!) until the husband talked me out of it. We decided that it was silly to get her one for her first winter since we really don't know how big/little she'll be and there's always the potential that it wouldn't fit until it was too warm for it. But don't you worry - she will definitely have one next year now that I know they come in teeny tiny sizes!
If you tell me this isn't the cutest thing ever, I might just call you a liar (j/k)!
One of my goals during this trip was to find 2 dresses - one to wear to my high school reunion and a baby shower and another one for my other baby shower. I totally succeeded at Belly Dance. I think I probably spent an hour at least in the dressing room trying to narrow down what I wanted. In the end I couldn't pick just two and went home with 3 instead. Here are the ones I got (sorry, I can't make them any bigger)and I can't wait to wear them - they all look SO good on and are SO comfortable!
Found here - paired with red pumps & jewelry - yes, please!
Forbidden Broadway Sundae - if I would show some will power I might not have
that double chin that's beginning to form. :)
