The City.

A few weekends ago, my super awesome boyfriend's super awesome job took him to New York for some work things. And being that my boyfriend is just that--super awesome--he decided that it would be super awesome if I joined him. Especially because I have a super awesome friend who recently relocated there. So we packed our carryon bags for five super awesome days in one of my favorite cities. 


The red eye went quick but the next day was long. I'm sure that was partly due to the fact that subways were having traffic congestion and I didn't even know that was possible. But we finally made it to the upper west side to Brynn's apartment in the sky. We almost didn't make it because Devin was distracted by the fireplace in her lobby, but I was cranky and wouldn't stop til I found a bed to catch some shut eye. Four hours later we hit the streets to find food. Indian it was. Dev needed to get some work done so his was hand delivered by yours truly. Plus he had a hard time leaving his newest bestie: Beju the hairless cat. He later nicknamed her Bejeweled and after that, their bond was unbreakable.  We had a movie watching snuggle party for the rest of the night and it super awesome.
The next day we had a mission. And that mission was accomplished when we scored spectacular seats  to Newsies on Broadway for a super awesome price. Our next mission was to eat super awesome food. That always happens to be our default mission. We ate at Stardust Diner and Shake Shack. And saw "Starry Night" in real life. Talk about a jaw dropping experience. Speaking of Jaw Dropping. Newsies. Also Jaw dropping.





Brooklyn was our plans for Saturday. I'd never been to Brooklyn before so I was quite excited. Especially since we were starting or day at The Brooklyn Flea. I had my heart set on one item: a vinyl record clock. And wussed out. I've regretted it ever since. However, meeting Epperson from Project Runway season 6 almost made up for it. Is it pathetic that I recognized him? He was stoked about it we are now homies for life.  No shame. #realitytvjunkie Then we ate delicious gelato while planning out how to accomplish my second mission of the trip: find Sister Zimet. Which happened to be a SUCCESS. It took a lot of scheming and maybe a little bit of lying but WE DID IT! Tears were shed and it was the most joyous reunion of three best friends ever! We were on such a high that we just had to feast. And that we did at the most delicious restaurant in Chelsea Market. By that time is was snowing and time to have another reunion...with the boy who spent the whole day working.







Super Bowl Sunday was filled with church going, The Met browsing, play watching (we couldn't resist), napping, and football watching while feasting.  I picked Once. He picked Newsies. He loved Once. I loved Newsies. How perfect are we for each other?! Aweee. And then there was Beyonce. Who won the superbowl.



Our last day in the City started off at the butt crack of dawn to go watch the Early Show. We froze our butts off but we made it on television several times so it was all worth it. Then we headed back to Brooklyn for more missionary fun. This time it was planned, but just as good. Oh how we miss our Janey. Then it was time for the dreaded goodbyes all around and we made our final subway ride back to JFK. 



I Love New York City!!
