Or in other words -shop till you drop!
Our day started after I mastered the waffle maker at breakfast
We headed up 5th Avenue to Trump Tower because this houses Niketown and we love Nike, but not Trump!
Security was hot as you would expect but must be costing the tax payer a fortune. The main man must have been expected, arm guards were present, police, bag checks, barriers etc. The building is impressive inside and out
Hubby wanted us to bring him something silly back and when we saw this T-shirt
I knew it was perfect, unfortunately we were not allowed to buy it as not US citizens and therefore not able to contribute to the electoral campaign, which is odd as surely that is over. #disappointed! Lots of other things we were not allowed also in his shrine!
The window displays and decorations were amazing, I managed to snap a few pics between shops
Even the fire engines had Christmas lights
We managed a slight deviation to see Grand central and my favourite tower the Chrysler Building.
Safe to say we walked miles, and my arms were now longer than when we started.
Back during one of the ‘athons I started following Paige a knitter, blogger, mother to three things and a runner across the pond. When I knew I would be in the neighbourhood I dropped her a quick email and asked if she was free for a meet up. I was so pleased when she said ‘yes’. Paige and thing two (who is a bit older than Madam) met us at Ippudo a Japanese restaurant, our first visit to one. What a lovely time we had. Food was amazing (I’ve already looked up and we have one in London!) and Paige and thing two were just as I imagined and it was like meeting up with old friends. Blogsphere is wonderful.
So lucky to have met such lovely people through this blog.
Two very tired girls headed to bed. Happy with our adventures.
