We slept in on Saturday. That was glorious. I don’t even know what sleeping in is anymore but her apartment stayed so dark where I slept that I was asleep till like 10am which was amazing. We had plans for brunch in the city with some friends at noon. We hit up Charlie Bird with friends and had an amazing brunch.
The brunch ladies…
After brunch, we all walked around the village doing a little shopping. We walked in and out of a few boutiques, found a fab rehearsal dinner dress for my cousin, and stopped for a special cupcake treat at the Magnolia Bakery. I had the red velvet cupcake and honestly I was a bit disappointed. I was hoping for some awesome cream cheese frosting, but instead it was a really light cool whip type icing. Oh well…
Sunday we walked in and out of some shops in Brooklyn and had brunch at a local spot called Sweet Chicks which is known for their chicken and waffles! It was a cute spot with excellent food.
We headed into the city early evening to do a little more shopping and exploring and I made her take me to the famous macaroon spot, Laduree. It did not disappoint at all. I honestly expected it to be even more ridiculously expensive than they are here at home which is $2.50 per macaroon. They were actually only $2.70 there which is still ridiculous but not as bad as I was expecting.
We met up with our good friend (and sorority sister), Megan, and had an awesome dinner in Soho at Navy. This is a tiny restaurant, but the food was incredible. I would definitely go back to this spot. It was so much fun to get to catch up with Meg. She had been out of town all weekend; but flew in town late Sunday afternoon, so we were able to catch her for dinner!
I hated saying goodbye, but was so happy that I was able to make it out on Monday. They all had to go back to work and I grabbed a famous NY bagel and coffee and grabbed an Uber to take me to the airport. I had an easy trip home and was happy to see my sweet baby to pick me up at the airport on Monday!!
It’s amazing how much I appreciate little getaways like this now. I was so spoiled pre-baby where I used to sneak away for the weekend all the time to catch up with old friends, but now these trips are few and far between. It makes me that much more appreciative of the little time I get with great friends and family that live far away 🙂
