Jack Frost, This Is Not A Threesome

What a week!

A Toast To Us!

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary a/k/a the Silver Anniversary on Valentine’s Day. Getting married on the one day when everyone comes together to celebrate love seemed like a good idea at the time. Not so much every year since when we try to get a dinner reservation.

Our son turned 21 on Wednesday and I turned my legal age on Friday. My mental age varies from 17 to 35. 

My husband surprised me with a weekend in NYC, knowing there is a strong possibility that I might adore this town more than him. He was a NYC virgin, so he wanted to check out his competition.

As you have probably heard by now, last weekend was the coldest on record. On RECORD!

These two lovebirds grabbed a big suitcase, loaded it as if we we heading to the Antarctic and hit the road. Nothing says sexy like a pair of long johns, said no one ever.

The Man I love in the City I Love

We arrived Friday afternoon when the weather was tolerable. After a nice meal at Sardi’s, followed by cocktails and dessert, we headed out to explore all the tourist spots. I do believe my boots earned travel miles.

It was spectacular! Watching my husband love it as much as me was priceless.

Chelsea Market

The next day we bundled up for a walk to The Chelsea Market. Walking allowed us to take in some of the world-class architecture that makes this section so special. I could see the hubby’s wheels turning with every piece of wrought iron.

We spent hours in the Market experiencing everything edible. Breakfast at Sarabeth’s, Halva at Seed & Mill, and a little something sweet for later from Li-Lac Chocolates. There are no calories when you’re celebrating love.

When we stepped outside Jack Frost was there nipping at everything nipable. TAXI! 

Greg wanted to go to Ground Zero, I could have passed on this stop, but I strapped my loved goggles on a little tighter and made the best of it. It was just a little too somber for me.

Lady Liberty Freezing Her Torch Off

This part of town sits right on the Hudson River, which is not exactly a warm spot. There are no words to describe the wind and cold. Wait .. I can think of two, and they both start with F! 

In order to thaw, we blew across the street to Brookfield Place, where I was greeted by a dog wearing beautiful leather boots and a Burberry coat. All I’m going to say about this place is, if it weren’t for my soul, I would really enjoy living like the 1%. 

Still shivering, we sat down in PJ Clarke’s to enjoy a bowl of soup, sip a cocktail or two, and admire Lady Liberty in the harbor. My poor girl out there in a dress with no coat!

Our Attempt At A Selfie

We ended this weekend sipping champagne, singing along with The Jersey Boys, eating cupcakes in bed and enjoying each other’s company. My cupcake never tasted so good.

The celebrations continue today with a birthday dinner for Zachary and mwah. We are looking forward to breaking with our offspring and their significant others. I’m sure they’re looking forward to us picking up the check!  

Cheers to the last 7 days! The brightest spot of winter so far!

Enjoy the Ride!

  1. You made a very bitter cold weekend sound delightful!

    1. God knows we tried! I never knew I could run in heels, but guess what? I can!

      1. NYC is a funny place. It can be hot or cold or damp or humid. You can never tell. I always wear the wrong stuff but I never even try to wear heels there.

      2. I NEVER wear heels EVER. But of course this was the day that I decided to get all gussied up … I was sprinting and dragging my husband…lol

  2. Nice smile. Happy anniversary. I am with you on the mental age.

  3. Congratulations on your Silver Anniversary. We celebrate ours in May!
    As for age, we act our shoe size (him 9 and me 7). Works for us!!

    1. That works for me too! Cheers to you 2 kids too!

  4. Congratulations! And Happy anniversary! What a wonderful, albeit freezing, weekend.

    1. Thank you! We refused to let Mother Nature ruin our weekend.

  5. As you know, I hate the cold, but I am jeal! I would spend hours in the cold just to have every single memory that you now have! Wonderfully written. I feel the love, excitement and happiness. I also feel like I was there, but then that would have been an orgy and if threesomes weren’t welcome…

  6. Good for you two!
    Congratulations!

  7. Wonderful! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate. I fell in love with New York City on my first visit. I went on a school trip during the Christmas break. It was like she was wearing diamonds, rubies and emeralds just for me. Several trips later and even more years I was able to introduce my hubby to New York City as well and I’m happy to say he was just as enamoured.
    Congratulations on your wonderful celebration!

    1. That is the perfect description. I also went on a school trip, came home and was looking for housing…lol. Every time I visit my battery gets recharged.

  8. Happy anniversary to you! How do you do this? We visited New York this past fall, and not one funny word appeared about it in my blog. But you see it! Every time!

    Your weekend sounds peachy. Nothing silver about it, except maybe the ice. Here’s to 25 more, if not anniversaries, then at least trips to New York.

    1. Thank you! We are heading back to visit Central Park soon, Jack Frost blocked that tour.

  9. You and I both visited NYC for a few days in February. The weather when I was there, from Monday to yesterday, was about 40 degrees warmer. Nevertheless, I am very warmed by this wonderful post.

    1. Thank you! 40 degrees warmer would have been down right balmy!

    Happy Anniversary!!! I love your selfie attempt! We got to get you a selfie stick! But then it would be intervention time! So maybe not! LOL

  11. Just found you, and you made me laugh! Congrats on 25 years! Brrrrrr…..I’ll check back when you thaw out!
