i always look forward to wandering around the holiday markets that pop up around the city during the month of december. in fact, you need to see this throw back to when we went a few years ago to the one at union square and i was 37 weeks pregnant with conrad! that baby bump was no joke. the best part is that it definitely got even bigger if you can believe it in the following few weeks.
josh and i checked out the holiday market at columbus circle last week and picked up a few fun little gifts for the kids while also taste testing some of the food vendors we hadn’t tried in years past. in doing so, we discovered the best nutella filled churro i have ever had. we had to go back and take the kids on saturday night for more churros on our way home from visiting santa at the plaza hotel. they agreed, incredible churros… and they are brutally honest when it comes to if they like something or not, even when it’s sweet and you think they will, ’cause they are kids and they like anything sweet, right?! lol. nope. dark chocolate? a hard cookie?! they don’t hold back their opinions and i love them for it. i plan to have nutella stuffed churros from the market at least twice more this month because you gotta live it up during the holidays when you are giving yourself a free pass on sugar and treats and all things delicious and also, that churro stand won’t be there in january so gotta get my fill.
a few photos from the market…
we also tried authentic bratwursts sold by germans no less (although i couldn’t get myself to add the sauerkraut on top of mine so not sure how legit it is)!
what’s up, handsome! not that i’m endorsing the no-beard look, but you know. love him no matter what. ;)
i bought some of these pretty colorful christmas trees made out of pipe cleaning brushes and spools. the owner has an etsy shop here (although i don’t see any of the little trees currently listed.)
the nutella filled churros i was telling you about. i had no idea i even liked churros before this experience. now they are probably in my top five favorite treats.
this is kind of gross, but i couldn’t get enough of it. an ‘i heart ny’ shirt with a cockroach on it. haha! i maybe got the t-shirt version for samson. he just loves bugs so much right now, i had to.
also, how sweet is this tote bag? not that i love spotting rats in the city (or thinking back to our days in our tiny harlem studio apartment where we had a serious mouse issue that was not fun whatsoever), but i loved how clever this was. (the shop can be found online here.)
keeping with tradition, we got the kiddos a new wooden puzzle from kubiya games (the shop is also online here.)
hoping you all had a great weekend! it snowed briefly for a few minutes last night and definitely got us very excited! we’re ready for a white christmas. :)
