With our east coast time winding down, we finally decided to celebrate our 5th anniversary/my 30th birthday by going up to the city at Christmastime and see the show. We drove up to NJ, and then Cydney watched Addy for the day while we took the train up and experienced what we like to call the New York Mega-Date.
Christmas window shopping (our favorites? Tiffany's and Bergdorf Goodman... well done, 5th Avenue)
The Rock in daylight (sadly, no Tina Fey)
Doug holding hands with an idol in FAO Schwartz
(I think you'll be pleased to see we took FULL advantage of the self-portrait pose. It's almost like we just superimposed ourselves in front of a bunch of NY tourist traps. Tricky, eh?)
The Rock at night
Finally seeing and LOVING "Wicked"
Maybe we were hungry, but I was really craving pizza so we found this delicious formerly-known-as-Ray's pizza place that was so SO good. But have you seen that Office clip where Michael talks about his favorite NY pizza? We were almost tempted to eat there too.
We had time to see everything on our Christmas sight-seeing list, and even had time to just sit in the ridiculousness that is Times Square, sip hot chocolate, and share a black and white cookie. The weather was perfect, and we loved how easy-going the whole day was.
The whole mega-date was a true, true success.
