Easter Weekend




 March was still cold but our studio was signaling spring.
Easter weekend was one to remember. 
The sun was shining and Scott didn't have to spend one hour in the office.
So, we decided to make the most of our time together. 
 We have a list of things we want to do and see while we live here 
and every week we try and check something off. 
The day before Easter we covered a lot of ground -- after 1:00 PM that is. 
Because Saturdays were made for sleeping in -- at least in the Maddux home. 
It was a compromising kind of day. 
Macy's Flower Show for Kylee. 
And ice skating at Rockefeller Plaza for all. 
First up -- we went to the Jacob Javits Center for the auto show. 
It was my first time to this building and quite frankly, I'd never noticed it before. 
I felt like an idiot, because it's huge, and like how can you miss a building that looks this cool?
Oh, and the cars were pretty neat too, I guess. 



 Thankfully, they had a Pinkberry station,
which got me through the rows of cars I didn't care about.
(AKA all of them).
Meanwhile, Scott was sitting in drivers' seats and dreaming of the day -- dream on, buddy.

 We walked across 34th Street with the sun shining down on our faces. 
I almost cried tears of joy because it felt so good. 
Sun, don't be a stranger. 
I need you. 
Next up, the annual Macy's Flower Show






 The wait wasn't long at all and it only takes about 15-20 minutes to move through the line and see the whole thing. 
The theme this year was "The Painted Garden" with an Asian and Indian influence. 
The flowers were gorgeous and it made me feel even more like spring was here to stay. 
 We had dinner at The Counter in Times Square. 
It's a custom built burger chain.
They are all over California, so Scott had been there before.  
I'd had not and am usually against eating in or near Times Square
 because of all the "tourist" restaurants.
But, I was pleasantly surprised. 
We came at the right time, didn't have to wait, and the burgers were delicious. 
It would be a great place to grab a bite before a Broadway.  
 Then, Scott Maddux made my dreams come true and took me skating at Rockefeller Center. 
I'd spent time interning at 30 Rock three years ago, 
and it's one of those places in the city where I have dear, wonderful memories.
Midtown is crazy during the holidays. 
So we figured it would be better and warmer to ice skate closer to springtime. 
I had awaited this night for some time.



 We weren't freezing and thankfully, it wasn't too crowded. 
We had an hour and a half to skate and take in all the scenery. 
We made fools of ourselves on the ice and then took a few breaks to rest our feet. 
We sang and danced to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and 
One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful", to name a few. 
It was a magical New York night -- one I won't forget. 





 Easter Sunday was beautiful and relaxing. 
We enjoyed church in the morning and Sunday naps in the afternoon. 
We ate way too many Cadbury eggs and Starburst jelly beans. 
Our baskets and celebrations were simple -- just how we like them. 
It was a weekend to remember with my main squeeze. 

(Oh and take note that I wore the same shirt on both Saturday and Sunday. 
I'm every fashion blogger's worst nightmare. 
Luckily, I think I showered?
Sue me.)
