New York:Part One

Last Thursday I headed to NYC for a girls weekend with two of my sweet friends, Amy & Joslyn.  We've been friends since high school and our friendship is such a blessing to me.  The big apple did not disappoint.

Thursday night we went to a nearby restaurant for late night snacks and a couple of drinks.  The food was decent but nothing to write home about.  It was great to just catch up and share lots of laughs.

Friday was jam-packed with shopping.  I found a few new pieces to add to my ever needy closet. Friday night we enjoyed a late dinner at Balthazar.  I've always heard such great things about this spot.  It was good but nothing ground-breaking. The Chicago dining/foodie scene has really distorted my views on food.  I find myself being quite the dining critic which is ironic because I can rarely make anything edible in the kitchen myself.

I didn't snap pictures of our entrees but did manage to snap shots of our two desserts. 

After dinner, we strolled through SoHo laughing and window shopping.  I spotted this piece of art in one window.  I'm so artsy...not.

We stopped by a bar and had a couple more drinks before heading back to the hotel.

Back tomorrow with another recap and more pictures from our trip!
