Yesterday evening Matt and I came back from a four day trip to New York! It was my mother-in-law's birthday on Sunday and we all gathered in the city to celebrate since my brother-in-law now lives there.
It was a great weekend of eating and drinking and exploring. The temperature wasn't much lower than here in Charlotte, but it felt FREEZING when you're walking around most of the time ;)
It's completely overwhelming finding things to do/eat in New York since there are so many choices, so here are some highlights that I would recommend:
- Chelsea Market Food Tour: This was the best tour I've ever taken and I am not completely obsessed with the Chelsea Market. I highly recommend it, especially if you love to eat. :)
- Da Andrea: Thank God for Yelp!! That's how Matt and I find every restaurant we go to when on vacation. We found Da Andrea on yelp, and it was some of the best Italian food I've ever had, and very budget friendly. Even our waitress was Italian. You know you're at a good restaurant when you want to have a little bite of everyone's dinner!!
- Balthazar: This is where we had Joan's birthday dinner. We all really loved this place!
- Rocco's: Amazing dessert, need I say more. It was SO GOOD! I ate so many desserts in New York (and the scale showed it when I got home!)
We always love visiting the city, but it's nice to be home! (Although whenever we do go, we joke about moving there. Matt's career has many options there, and I love dreaming about being a decorator there. Fun to think about, but I don't think we could survive there!)
In other news, today is a really fun/exciting day. I'm having a photoshoot of a space I decorated. I can't share all the details yet, but I will as soon as I can!
