Thanksgiving New York Minute

Thanksgiving weekend was spent in New York City with my sister Kacey and our fabulous hosts Catherine and Preston Wallis. Catherine and Preston got married in September and have been living in NYC and since I am so close we decided that it would be a great place to spend Thanksgiving. The only time I have been to New York is for the US Open and I wasn't able to see any of the city so this was a whole new experience for me. Catherine made sure I got the full New York experience.

We started Thanksgiving Day with the Macey's Parade. Lucky for us Preston works on 6th ave and 34th street so we got to watch from his office. We were up on the 11th floor and sat on the window seals, it was the perfect view. Our sweet family friends the Matheson's invited us over for Thanksgiving dinner. We love this family. They have the cutest kids and really made it feel like we were with family.

Friday we needed to regroup a little bit. We slept in and then took a nice walk through Riverside Park where You've Got Mail is filmed. We showered and went out for a day of attempting to shop, sightseeing, and then seeing the Rockette's Spectacular Christmas show that night. The perfect way to start off the Christmas season. We walked all around 5th Ave and Rockefeller Center before heading home.

Saturday was more sight seeing with Central Park, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, more shopping and of course Serendipity for some lovely Frozen Hot Chocolate.

We had such a great weekend! We missed being with our family but Catherine is about as close to family as you can get for us. Thanks for such a great weekend Preston and Catherine! Thanksgiving in New York City can now be checked off the bucket list!
