We also had the pleasure of walking the Brooklyn bridge - something that neither of us has ever done before. In case you are wondering - the bridge is only about 1.25 miles long - not bad at all, unless is happens to be pouring down rain (and I mean pouring) and its 34 degrees outside AND you don't have an umbrella!
Finally we made it to Brooklyn and treated ourselves to the best pizza in New York - Grimaldi's. Well worth the trek in the snow and ice to get there - and made for some hilarious memories not caught on film - such as the cars next to the bridge here. When one of them passed - it splashed water up on to where I was standing and SOAKED me. Did Ron come to my rescue - nope - he just laughed. Niice. That's okay - he got his when we walked under the bridge - and amazingly - at that very moment - a car passed and splashed water on top of his head. What a great day.
Finally - we spent my Birthday shopping, shopping, and well shopping. Ron had planned an elaborate day for me - starting with breakfast at Sarabeth's - my fave. Then we walked down 5th avenue to Tiffany's - where he had a special "viewing room" set up for me and the ladies there had set out my gift (Ron had already bought it in Dallas - but we got to pick it up in NYC) on the table with two glasses of champagne (they didn't get the memo about Boomerang). It was such an amazing day so far - and I loved my bracelet he bought for me!
And then - he topped it off with a fabulous dinner at CraftSteak in Chelsea. The only night I actually wore heels in the cold weather - thank the good Lawd for Taxis! It was the best 30th birthday I could have imagined!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday with you families and friends. Peace and Joy to you for 2009!!!
