NYC, Part I



We got back from NYC yesterday afternoon and the trip was a blast but also incredibly tiring! Guys, I'm pretty sure my days of bachelorette parties are dwindling quickly two straight nights of gallivanting is not as easy as it used to be. Why oh why does this have to happen? One night a weekend out is pretty much all I can handle these days which is incredibly depressing. I'll recap the bacheloretty party tomorrow but today I am sharing our time in Manhattan. There was lots of delicious eating and quite a bit of shopping and now I have to go on a strict diet and a strict budget. Sigh.

First stop was food at ABC Kitchen. So, so good.
Making the journey to SoHo.
The weather was wonderful so there were tons of people out in Washington Square Park.
I don't know if I ever shared my love for the Louis Vuitton Evora MM in the Damier Azur. I've started saving for it and reckon I can buy it in like 20 years because I suck at saving money.
My hubby wears John Varvatos cologne so I had to snap a pic :)
More handbag lusting happening at Mulberry in SoHo.
C. Wonder was beyond amazing! I picked up some gifts for friends and one for myself.
Drinks at Balthazar
Going on a trip with just one other person results in a lot of solo shots.
Good drinks, good atmosphere
Empire State Building
Lest you think all we did was eat, drink, and shop-- we also visited the Lunch Hour exhibit at the New York Public Library. It was so cool and FREE! We really enjoyed it!

I have to be honest, not the best cupcake I've ever had. It was just okay. 
Being tourists in Central Park

Love all the bench dedications in Central Park

The lobby at the Carlton Hotel
Loved the Carlton Hotel! The service was great and the hotel was beautiful!


Thursday night we had dinner at David Burke Kitchen. The cheese plate, the tuna tartare tacos, and the ricotta donuts were divine. Avoid the Margherita pizza. We sat in the garden and the weather was perfect.

All in all, it was a great trip and I'm glad my sister and I finally got to go to NYC together. School started today so I am back to the daily grind. Thankfully, we still have a week until the kiddies show up but I am sad to see summer go! It went by so fast and I don't know if I was as productive as I could've been. How many days until Christmas break??
