One of my favorite little bakeries, Le Pain Quotidien, was just a couple doors down from our hotel, so we ate breakfast there on Friday morning. This bakery is a chain but does not feel like one! I think there are three locations in NYC and a few overseas.
Pretty Christmas decorations:
I did just a little shopping-not much!
Don't worry, nothing too expensive in there--just some pretty red lipstick! I am not usually a name brand kind of girl but I do love me some Chanel lipstick. Plus I just like going in the store if I happen to be nearby--it makes me feel very feminine and girly!
If a trip to the city isn't in the cards right now, Magnolia has a great cookbook that apparently gives away all their best secrets! So you can have all that yumminess in your own kitchen.
I ran in Dylan's Candy Bar just for fun. I just love going in there! It makes me feel like, well, a kid in a candy store.
I just realized I am seeing a bit of a pattern here...bakeries, cupcakes, and candy, oh my! Sounds like I need to take a step away from the sweets! ;)
I will recap the rest of our trip in another post. Right now I'm going to go take care of a sweet little man who is feeling under the weather with a bad sinus infection. We are staying home from church this morning in hopes that he will get well quickly. I hate missing church but I am so thankful for technology! So here's my gratitude list for today: live streaming so we can still be with our church family in worship this morning. Safe travels home. Conversations with cherished friends. A sweet little hand on my cheek last night, because someone needed his mama a little more than usual.
I am so looking forward to celebrating Christmas. I hope you are too!
