For those in the States, I hope you all had a fab Thanksgiving holiday! For me, I took a short trip to NYC. Other than visiting fam, my goal while there was to try to eat all the carbs (I came pretty close).
One cool thing about not living in the City anymore is that when I go back to visit, I have zero qualms about doing all the touristy things. I used to pretty much steer clear of anywhere in Manhattan above 34th Street, but now, I am all about Midtown. Part of the fun of being in the City is seeing all the wonder in the eyes of people who are just visiting.

Below is a medley of pics I took with my phone, some of which you may have already seen on my Instagram. As for today, it's back to the grind!
It was a bit cold on my first day in the City. / Shopping and skating at the Winter Village in Bryant Park. / The diversity of eats available is awesome - some Azerbaijani for this evening.
Love Asian bakery breads! / FAO Schwarz - can't visit NYC during the holidays without coming here. / My fave part of the store is the Build-Your-Own-Muppet section.
One of Tiffany's windows. / Love seeing the city all dressed up for the holidays. / Some macarons and "serious" reading on the evening before Thanksgiving.
Grand Central Station on Thanksgiving eve - packed! / The New York Public Library is dolled up for the holidays. / The epic hugeness that is my brother-in-law's wallet.
Loving (albeit it super-posed) pic of my nephew and I finishing up the tree trimming - cue the warm and fuzzies! / Home-made food is the best - beef noodle soup with wontons and fish cake. / Love ya, NYC!
My last bit of food in NYC - the black & white cookie, where "two races of flavor live side-by-side." / Finally at home, robed up, snacked out, and prepped to do some serious holiday shopping.
