9.5.16 – NYC!

5 Sep

Kyle and I went on a little “baby moon” over Labor Day weekend to New York City! Our friend, Fatima, graciously invited us to stay with her and planned a super fun weekend for us complete with an itinerary. I decided not to take my camera, but I still snapped a few pics on my phone. Here is a little recap of our weekend:

Day 1: Arrive to NYC in the evening and meet Fatima at her place. She lives in Hell’s Kitchen really close to Times Square with an awesome view of the sunset every night!

We had a late dinner at ABC Kitchen. One of my favorite parts about our trip was all the yummy restaurants Fatima planned for us to visit. Almost all of them had smaller portion sizes. We ordered a bunch of items to sample and share which was really fun. ABC Kitchen had an amazing atmosphere with delicious local, organic menu options.

Day 2: Kyle and I spent the morning having breakfast in Bryant Park and exploring. We met Fatima for lunch at the Rink Lounge at Rockefeller Center. Then we did the “Top of the Rock” to check out the views at the top of Rockefeller Center. The weather was perfect! Then we walked over to Central Park and hung out for a bit before heading back to relax before our play. We picked up some Shake Shack for dinner and headed to see Book of Mormon and really enjoyed it.

Day 3: Kyle and I headed to find the “best bagel” in NYC at Best Bagel, and it was really good. We did a little more exploring including checking out the Flat Iron building. We had a late brunch at a really fun restaurant called Beauty and Essex. Then we walked the Brooklyn Bridge and left a little lock there. After the bridge, we headed over to Soho to do a little shopping. We ended the night at Graffiti where Kyle and I had our first taste of Indiana French food, and it was really yummy! We topped it off with a little ice cream down the street from Big Gay Ice Cream.

Our flight was the next morning, so we made a stop at Amy’s Bread to get some breakfast and goodies for the road. The weekend flew by. We can’t thank Fatima enough for hosting us and planning such a fun weekend for us. Time to get ready for a very special girl’s birthday and these baby boys’ arrival!
