Happy New Year! I know I have been MIA for a bit - blame the holidays and traveling - but I am back for 2012! One of my resolutions for the New Year is to post at least 3 times a week on my blog, so be prepared to hear lots from me starting as soon as possible!
I spent Christmas with my Dad and step-mom in San Antionio, TX this year. (Check back soon for a post on a cool, unusual gift they got me that relates to my Operation: Princess Pen Pal project.)
After Christmas, I flew to New Jersey to spend some time with David, his family and his friends. It was an awesome trip and I even got to cross some items off of my bucket list while in New York City. Check out my photos below:
|David's dad took us skeet shooting. At first I was a little scared, but then I turned out okay. I think I got 8/10 in the competition.|
|We spent New Year's Eve at David's friend's place in Brooklyn. They made this sparkly pinata filled with candy, which David got to bust open at midnight. I hope I wasn't the only one that grabbed and ate the candy out of it :o)|
|Later in the evening, we went into Manhattan to meet up with some of David's college friends. Instead of taking a regular yellow taxi back, we grabbed a bicyle taxi!|
|Outside of Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey. They film Cake Boss here on TLC. I got two chocolate covered strawberries, a brownie, a cannoli, a coffee mug and a chocolate chip cookie! Everything was awesome, but the cakes are definitely the coolest thing Buddy (the Cake Boss) makes.|
|I randomly spotted the ball that drops at midnight on NYE in Times Square while walking down a side street!|
|I don't know what these red stairs are for, but I had to take a photo because they seem to be in everything. Plus, there was a billboard for Wicked in the background, which we saw later that day.|
You might have recognized the Times Square stairs from the following:
|Jay-Z and Alicia Keys filmed part of their "Empire State of Mind" video on the stairs.|
|At the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree!|
|Ice skating at Rockefeller Center! It was freezing that day, but skating was so much fun!|
