Well, I have returned. From a three day (my FIRST) weekend away with my best friend to NYC for her 40th! We’d planned it for months & boy it flew by. I missed my kids but it was good to get away and celebrate with her and remember what I was like before multiples. We saw shows (and movie stars!), shopped all over town – in new skinny sizes, toasted her birthday at a beautiful roof top bar, and ate at hot spot restaurants. We WALKED – uptown, downtown, and across town – so we earned that yummy cupcake from Magnolia Bakery 🙂
But most of all we reconnected. It’s so hard to have any time to carry on a long conversation when you’re rushing home or have antsy kids trying to hang up your phone or are just watching the clock. But here was three days of off-the-clock laughing and talking and comparing notes on work and marriage and living life. And after all these years we STILL learned new stuff about each other – so cool. So even better than sitting three rows from the in person version of Chris Noth and buying that gorgeous Sue Wong cocktail dress was hanging out with my friend. Here’s a few pictures that capture our days in the Big Apple……..
