My Beautiful Visitors!!

Two weeks ago my mom and Gretchen (my sister, Alysha) came across the country to visit me!! I was so HAPPY to see them and spend time showing them my new home :) We had so many things to do and see in only a few days and we wasted no time! Here are only a fraction of the pics we took.
Times Square on a Saturday night is a must if you wanna see all the crazy people dressed up.
I let Lysh take a pic of my belly to take home as a souvenir. It's growing!!
Got some Bubba Gump's shrimp on Times Square with the best frozen lemonade.
Lysh with Miss Liberty. We also took a ferry out on the water to get a closer look.
"Top of the Rock" at the Rockefeller Center where Bryan works.

Shops on 5th Ave. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Sorry, I cut mom out.

And the famous... too bad it was a 2 hour wait to get in. Maybe another time.
We hit up The Addams Family musical. It's not as good as some of the other shows we've seen, but it was still really fun!
Checked out the protesters on Wall Street...
Brooklyn Bridge!
Shopping in SoHo and HAD to stop at the famous Lombardi's Pizza for lunch. Sooo yummy!
And being goofy in the park.
Thank you for coming to see me! Come back sooooon!!

Washington DC and Baltimore

Since we've lived in NY, we have been lucky enough to travel along the East Coast a little bit and have seen some really cool things! It is kinda a pain to leave the city because we either have to figure out the train thing or rent a car (which is sooo pricey on the weekends!). But, this past weekend we got a car and drove to DC. We drove through DC when we moved across the country, but didn't get to spend much time in the city, so we wanted to go back. We jumped on one of the bus tours and went all over the city, getting off at different stops to run into museums or take pics. I couldn't get over all the amazing buildings! I am a huge fan of the style of architecture in DC and it was fun to see everything in person.

The Lincoln Memorial was probably my favorite thing we saw!

Mr. Lincoln himself.
We were lucky enough to stay with Bryan's cousin, Juliette, in DC, then got up early the next day and drove to Baltimore to meet up with our friends, Dennis and Taya Pitta, and catch Dennis' football game! Such a blast! It was a great excuse for me to bust out the purple skinnies to wear to the game.
Yay #88! Luckily, the Ravens pulled out a "W" and we had an enjoyable night at dinner after the game. We really loved the Baltimore stadium, but the city was more ghetto than I thought it would be.
Did I mention the weather was PERFECT?? It was. 65 degrees and only sprinkled for a few minutes. Didn't even have to wear a coat and I was loving it! Kinda mad I didn't get a pic with everyone in it. Oh well. Thanks Pittas!
