NYC Date

Josh and I had such a fun NYC date the week before Valentine's Day. This "date" was definitely bigger than our normal "dating budget", but we counted it as our Valentine's Day/birthday/belated-Christmas date. It was such a fun day! 
My wonderful sister-in-law watched our kids for 9 hours(!!), which was a true act of love! 
 We took the train into the city and then had a delicious lunch at Parm on the Upper West Side. We had heard about their famous chicken parmesan sandwiches and they totally lived up to the hype. Yum! (The picture doesn't do it justice. So good!)
 Then we headed to the Gershwin Theater for Wicked! 
Fun fact: the Gershwin Theater is located at the bottom of the Paramount Plaza Building, which is where Josh goes to work everyday!
 I've been wanting to see Wicked for years! ...Ever since my choir friends in high school raved about it years ago. It totally lived up to the hype! Josh and I loved the story, loved the music, loved the acting and all the talent. It was fantastic!

After the show we walked through Time Square to see the big ad the LDS church put up for Christmas time. That message definitely stands out among the other worldly ads. 
 We ended our fabulous NYC date with banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery. This was our first time trying it and we loved it! We've got to go back sometime because I'm still thinking about it.
Such a fun day with Josh! We checked off three big things from our NYC bucket list and it made for the perfect date!
