Because I haven't taken a "girls trip" in 10 years, because I have a wonderful husband, because I love to shop and dine out, or just because I was asked.... I WENT TO NYC!
Last week, I went to New York City with three other ladies for a long weekend get-a-way. It was AWESOME. We shopped, did some sight-seeing, ate at wonderful restaurants and went to the theatre. It was wonderful.
In January, my friend Helen said she wanted to go see New York. I, of course, was happy to oblige. I have been a couple of times before, but am always up for another short trip. I don't really enjoy NYC for longer than a few days -but a quick four day trip sounded perfect. And it was.
We ate at one of my favorite restaurants- NoBu- twice!!! They have two (well, 2-1/2) locations in NYC, so we visited them all. Literally. We also did some shopping - which, well - lets face it, is always a good time. I really enjoyed the time away and spending some quality time with some pretty terrific ladies.
Meanwhile, on the homefront - Greg (aka- dad of the year) was keeping Jake happy and occupied. They played outside, went to Nana's and even went out to eat. Of course, I was soooo excited to see them both when we got home. Unfortunately, Jake got pink eye at church that morning, so my first day home was spent at Children's Hospital's afterhours clinic. Oh, well! Parenthood 101- you take one small break and you WILL PAY! ha!
Here are a few pics of the trip! We've already decided that we'll have to go back in 3-5 years! I like to plan ahead!
