the plaza, nyc

After the initial shock of the huge event in our lives, Ryan said he had another surprise for me. He secretly booked a room at The Plaza for the night and he even packed a bag without me knowing. So his plan wouldn’t get discovered, the little sneak even went as far as to buy new PJs, toothbrushes and toiletries so I wouldn’t realize things were missing from our bathroom! How cute is that!?!

Now, some may say it’s a little strange, but every since I saw Home Alone when I was 9, I’ve wanted to stay at The Plaza during the holiday season. After the most recent hotel renovation, they turned hotel rooms into condos so I thought my dream of staying at The Plaza would never happen.  But then Ryan surprised me and told me we were going to stay there (apparently they only converted some of the rooms)!

Checking in to a five star hotel is not something I’ve ever done before, so as soon as we walked through the lobby I was smitten. I couldn’t stop smiling!









After we checked out of the hotel, we went for a walk in the park again and saw a heart etched into the bridge at the exact spot Ryan asked me to be his wife (eek!). Everything was so perfect, it seems too good to be true!
