man oh man did we have fun. we were ready to live it up, since we were free from responsibility for the moment. their 2 older kids are the same age as our 2 older kids and all of those kids were in d.c. so we thought we would be really close by, just in case :)
we rented an apartment, hit up b & h, times square, several bakeries (including magnolia & levain), saw a show (leap of faith), walked and walked and walked, ate and ate and ate, took the staten island ferry, went to the today show, walked around central park, met up with my cousin, went to the met, found some delicious bagels (ess-a bagels), stayed up really late and had a grand ol' time.
enjoying the sights & smells at magnolia....
ann curry. she spoke to me. all i could say was "you are so pretty". she laughed and said it's all make up. then she leaned in really close and said "see, i have freckles under there. lot's of them!". then she touched my arm and said "but really, how are you doing?"
we are pretty much best friends now.
we headed over to carmines for a delicious italian dinner. then we closed down times square looking for some action. we finally settled on a 2 am snack at a deli.
we decided to make a tradition out of it and go back every year.
also, i just saw avengers and couldn't help but notice that it was filmed right on our stomping grounds... 39th & park!
