NYC briefly.

in Weekend Recap

Did I mention we went to New York?  We did!  Went with a few fun gals and we got in on a Thursday night.

Amy D and I hit up Vero, a wine bar that Shane and I had stumbled upon once before.  We hit the jackpot with reverse happy hour 10pm-1am.

The next morning was breakfast at Ess a Bagel and shopping in Williamsburg; we went to quite a few boutiques.  I bought some sunglasses, a necklace, and of course – COFFEE.

Retail therapy requires snacks, so of course we went in search of ‘em.  Hit up Momofuku Milk Bar for boozy hot chocolate and compost cookies – words cannot describe the deliciousness.  Marisa and I took our milk mustaches very seriously.

And Amy D and I had a photo op with the CRACK PIE.

Happy hour with a friend from high school, always good to catch up!  Then we followed up on her suggestion of Artichoke Pizza.  I was surprised, but shouldn’t have been, to discover it was like artichoke dip on a pizza.  Incredible.  And caloric.

We were  crammed at the back of the shop but still managed to get a pic.  Marcie, Marisa, me, Amy!

Those are my mother-in-law’s earmuffs and they are awesome.

Saturday was brunch at Cafe D’Alsace and BOOK OF MORMON.

At our box seats:

And Marisa had planned a nice dinner at a Tapas place to be followed by going OUT.  Here’s our out faces:

We didn’t stay out too long though, which was great because – I’ll be honest – this trip was the first time I’ve felt truly overwhelmed by New York.  All the people, the traffic, the subways, everything.  Too crowded for this Texas gal.  It’s fun to visit but the weekend was enough.  I mean, you never anticipate it being a relaxing trip but I was worn.out.

But not so worn out that my college dance team friend Brooke, Amy, and I couldn’t go out for brunch.  We caught up a lot and guess what – now, a month later, SHE’S ENGAGED!!! Congrats, Brookie!

A blast of a trip.  Sad to head back, but we didn’t leave without delicious bagels and some other treats.  And yknow..sometimes “I JUST WANNA HAVE FUN WITH MY FRIENDS!” ;)
