Last weekend I went to New York for a girls weekend.
I took the bus up on Saturday morning and navigated myself to Jen’s apartment on the Upper East Side.
We met up with the girls at Max Brenner.
Even though it was three in the afternoon, I had to get the chocolate chip pancakes. They did not disappoint.
Then we wandered around for the afternoon/early evening before having dinner and drinks.
On Sunday morning, we planned to meet for brunch at Hannah’s apartment in Brooklyn. Jen and I decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on our way.
It was a gorgeous day, perfect for a walk. Also perfect for brunch outside on the terrace followed by a visit to a nearby park.
Mid-afternoon, I met Amanda for another walk, this time in Battery Park.
We also stopped for a snack and had some delicious sangria and great conversation at a perfect window seat.
After my afternoon with Amanda, I headed to meet some of my favorite people from high school for dinner.
After some debate we decided as a table to go for the Sunday Supper: whole fried chicken and a bunch of sides, an appetizer, and dessert! Great decision.
Monday I spent the day with Jen. We got bagels, mani-pedis, stopped in to see her mom and 4-month old niece, had Thai food for lunch, and did a little shopping.
I wanted to show you my manicure–I went a little trendy and got one different color nail–but I forgot to take a picture and now they’re all chipped.
I hopped on a 5:00 bus back to DC.
I read O, The Oprah Magazine, and watched an episode of Downton Abbey. We made great time back to DC getting in around 9:20.
It was a great weekend filled with some great girl time. Love girl time.
