Friday, Mama Jill came to play for the day-we shopped, lunched and had blow-outs, basically the best day ever! I had my two friends, Catherine and Erin come over for bubbles and snacks before we headed uptown to see the Nutcracker. Cross that off the Christmas bucket list! We had a late dinner at Aria, the best Italian food in the city and then finished the night at the Ritz. The gingerbread house above is made with real candy and the smell of deliciousness hits you as soon as you enter the Ritz lobby! We made a friend at the bar and enjoyed more champs and people watching! After a fancy night out with my girls, I headed to my favorite family's house and babysat for three boys overnight so their parents could enjoy a little stay-cation! To say I learned a lot about Star Wars, Pokemon and just boy-speak is an understatement! We checked out the Christmas lights, made birthday cards, hit the park and played Candy Crush-all in all a very well rounded, full of adventures type of weekend! Excited that we are in the home stretch before Christmas, which means I have a party pretty much every night this week, so I'm hydrating until the first one! Have a fabulous week!
