deck the halls and go to mall!

still have last minute shopping to do.. we rush to get everything done and we go from place to place visiting friends and family. its all exhausting but at the same time the excited from being festive seems to be the wind under our wings lol.
i feel like a little elf wrapping presents hamging decorations and spreading joy and peace!.

last week i got to enjoy the rockettes christmas show. it was beautiful. i felt like i was 9 yrs old.. from there my friends and i went to rockefeller center to see the enormous tree and beautiful star on top!.. then we walked down 5th avenue where there were gorgeous lights and displays everywhere!.. then went to central park for a carriage ride. Then to this fabulous restaurant on the upper west side. It was called "accademia di vino" where the owner treated us amazingly. He brought raddiccio to our table and showed us how beautiful it was before its cut up. It was brought straight from Rome, Italy. Again amazing! The cheeses there were to die for. The wine excellent and robust! And they had riccotta cheese cake drizzled with honey. Which is one of my favorite desserts. harder to find then the normal new york cheese cake.

Then i poured myself into bed and had plesant dreams! lol
I hope all of you are taking advantage of such a wonderful season and holiday and enjoying wherever you are!
