Live from New York it’s….

October 31st, 2009

As noted in the previous post, last weekend I had a Girls Weekend in NYC.  My girlfriend Christian and I had SUCH a great time!  Here’s the recap…

Friday morning we took a {REALLY EARLY} flight from RIC to LGA and were in the city by 9am!!  Major amounts of coffee were needed to get us to the airport that early.  Christian also packed her trusty NYC map and we were checking out the lay of the land before we even touched down.


Our first stop in NYC was my Aunt Totty’s apartment to drop off our bags.  She and her husband have an amazing place right in Midtown and offered us the place to ourselves for the weekend. {Ironically Aunt T and Uncle T were headed back to VA for a few days.}  Here’s the view from one of their bedrooms.


After a quick hello to Aunt T, Christian and I hit the pavement.  Operation STUD {also known as Shop Till U Drop} had begun. We navigated the subway like pros as we went down to Ground Zero, up to the Upper West Side, over to SOHO and back up to Chelsea.  It looked a little like this.

Have no fear.. we did stop long enough for lunch.

P1010164What?! Were you expecting to see food?? After a glass {or two}, we were back on the streets.

We spent the remainder of the afternoon hitting a few more stores and then we went back to my Aunt’s to relax before dinner.  Christian and I had plans to catch up with an old friend that has been living up in NYC for the past 3 years.

Honor suggested her favorite local Mexican spot for us to meet. Salsa Y Salsa.

P1010169Let me just give Honor props now.  She was out LATE the night before and was majorily hungover all day.  I think she was still hurting a bit by the time we caught up- but she was a trooper!

P1010166After dinner we hit a few more bars… and then called it a night.


On Saturday, Christian and I had a slow start, but nothing a NY bagel couldn’t fix.  Since Operation STUD was still in affect, we decided to switch it up a bit and hit some thrift stores.  Christian had heard stories of rich ladies dropping off their Designer labels after wearing only once.  We knew it had to be too good to be true and we left empty handed. Bummer!

Operation STUD was proving to be a very unsuccessful.  {Let me go ahead and admit here that yes- Christian and I know that there is more to do in NYC than just shop. Sure there are cultural things like the MOMA or the Guggenheim, but when you have money burning a hole in your pocket that is all you can think about.}  So if we couldn’t spend money on clothes, we thought we should spend it on food.  Thanks to my trusty iPhone we found a great burger spot called Pop Burger..




We also took a break to catch up with a college friend of Christian’s.  Ellen and her husband had just welcomed a new baby girl into the world.  Miss Millie was only 10 days old when we met her.  What a cutie!!


Before we knew it, it was Sunday and time to pack up and head back to The Old Dominion State.  But before we left, we grabbed some quick breakfast and checked out Rockefeller Center.




Thanks for the great hospitality NYC.  Even though Operation STUD was a total bust, Christian and I still had an awesome time!
