Filling in Some Gaps

So…before we get to New Year’s, I thought I’d fill you in on a few gaps I’ve left you with!

So after Disney, we got a short break and then Thanksgiving!  We wanted to host – it would just be 3 guests – but please remember that we still haven’t finished unpacking from our move – don’t have our plates and glasses – have a miniscule sized kitchen – and barely have any places to sit in our shoebox apartment…still…with the help of a bus ride to Boston Market I think we did a good job 🙂

I can’t say enough about how amazing Boston Market  is to provide holiday service – they really are the experts.  I swear it tasted better than anything I could have whipped up.  We stuck with canned soda in fridge for this feast – but I’ll tell you that Boston Market does sell fountain Coke products in case you were wondering.

Of course I took the kids to Macy’s Santa Land to see the real Santa Claus.  I mean, if he’s the one in the nationally broadcasted Thanksgiving Day Parade, then he MUST be the real one!

Santa brought me the perfect gifts, combining my love of soda and Disney 🙂  (and yes, my family did get me the necklace I talked about here!)

Our Holiday celebrations were full of family, friends, love and laughter.  Just wanted to share some of my joy!  Apparently so did Coca Cola – enjoy 🙂

One of things I love about living in the city is that “THEE MACY’S”…like Thanksgiving Day Parade Macy’s…”Miracle on 34th St.” Macy’s, is MY Macy’s.

Today I went there to pick up a shirt and a birthday present for my sister.  I quickly found a shirt I think I like…I’ll keep the tags on until I’m sure I’m going to wear it. Then I went to the children’s floor because I always give it a quick walk through in case something jumps out at me.

Well, no piece of clothing jumped out at me, but the entire floor had music blaring and mobs of people – something BIG was going on.  That something BIG was a Ralph Lauren promotion of the movie PAN that opened this weekend.

Oh my goodness! There were tables of craft projects, temporary tattoos being applied, photo ops with this guy available:

AND….photo ops with a star of the movie, Levi Miller! What a cute kid! I didn’t take any pictures of him because he was always posing with another child and I didn’t want to invade their privacy. I was able to get one of those pirate hats you can see two photos above.  I’m going to save it for Halloween and let my son with food allergies trade me some of his candy for it.

I passed by Levi & the bear on my way to the McDonald’s on that floor.  I waited behind 2 people and finally ordered my Diet Coke, only to ONCE AGAIN, be told they have no soda.  WHAT IS GOING ON MCDONALD’S??? This makes twice this week that I have visited one of your restaurants and waited in line only to be told that there isn’t any soda I want. For the love of all goodness- POST A SIGN and STOP WASTING MY TIME!!!!

Thankfully there is an Auntie Anne’s on the children’s floor and they were able to provide me with a decent Diet Coke – Thank you Auntie Anne’s!

I started down the never ending maze of escalators from the 7th floor and noticed a Clinique display that looked awesome.  They had this cute Clinique Pretty Wow, Pretty Now 7 piece kit with bag.

I thought my sister would like it so I grabbed it and went to pay for it. Turns out it’s Clinique Bonus Time through October 25, 2015 and so I got a 7 piece gift set with my purchase – SCORE! Thanks Sis for having a birthday this time of year!
