So recently I'm talking to the bestie and we mention how much fun it would be to do a couples trip to NYC. She and I had been talking about going together every since seeing Rent together in High School. Fast forward 4 hours later and we have flights booked and Airbnb places favorited. For our trip we would be taking the very next week.
You heard that right. In a matter of an afternoon, we noticed that JetBlue was having a hella good sale to NYC for the next weekend and decided, why the heck not?? My planner side freaked out for a second but then pulled it together for some last minute researching/travel binder making. <---(Nerd status right there).
It was a (cold!!) whirlwind of a weekend but we had so much fun cramming in all the sights and even met up with an old friend of ours from High School! Tab had never been, so we hit up a lot of must see tourists spots while still making time for some fun new places to eat and explore.
Our AirBnb place! It was so quaint and perfect!
And my sexy husband. Sometimes I still can't believe he's mine. :)
We saw this guy in Washington Square and I immediately thought of Home Alone....
Pleaseee tell me I'm not the only one.
Central Park is my favorite part of NYC. There's just something about the magic of all those trees and lakes and bridges in the middle of such a busy city.
It was cold, but so beautiful with all the changing colors!!
This was the first time I had seen the WTC memorial because the last time we were there it was still under construction. The reflection pools were so beautiful and serene and I thought they perfectly memorialized the lives that were lost.
We met up with an old friend, Meghan who took us to a delicious Thai place and showed us around some local bars. At one of them I even ran into Project Runway Season 13 winner, Sean Kelly! Jon is totally the one who spotted him!
Museum of Natural History!
Which had the cutest christmas dino!
And after Tab and Brian caught their flight out (they had to leave a few hours earlier than us) I drug Jon to the courthouse to see one of my all time favorite shows being filmed! Law & Order SVU fans unite!
I am so glad we got to visit this city with these two awesome people. I love traveling so much and to share that experience with people like Tab and Brian who we love and are such a big part of our lives back home just made for a really awesome time!
Ah, NYC. You just never ever get old.
