Spent Thursday, well into the night, walking around midtown Manhattan with a friend, taking pics of the holiday decorations. The city looked especially festive this year.
Then home for some hot chocolate. I tried one of the packets I got as a gift from a friend:
|Hot Chocolate Truffle Double Chocolate|
Friday, another friend and I saw "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." I never read the book, so I'm coming into these movies cold, but I enjoyed it a lot and can't wait for the final chapter. This one ended in a definite cliffhanger.
