Hi loves! It has been a while since I have blogged, but I promise that will not happen again. I just got back from spring break last week and I had the best time EVER. It was different than normal, no bikinis, no beaches, and no suntanning. Instead, I traded all that for snow boots, coats, and scarves. I spent eight days in the city that never sleeps, yes, you heard right, NEW YORK CITY! Instead of going day by day of what I did, I am going to highlight my favorite moments from the trip. 🙂
Schmackary’s is all about cookies and let me tell you- it is YUMMY!! All the cookies are baked fresh daily, and there is such a variety including “the kitchen sink”. I would recommend Schmackary’s if you have a big sweet tooth like me.
My next favorite part of the eight days was Sunday morning brunch with all the girls. We went to a place in Greenwich Village called Village Prime and it was DELICIOUS!!! They have a special, $19.95 for your entree and AUCD mimosas or sangria. For the city, that is a deal of a lifetime. I will definitely be back when I visit again.
Biking through Central Park. If you haven’t worked out in a while (like me), good luck! It was so much fun, but so many uphills you have to bike. I thought my legs were going to give out on me a couple of times. :-O
On Tuesday, we went on top of the Empire State Building. It was such a BEAUTIFUL day outside to do it too. You could see miles and miles of city, absolutely breathtaking. With 16 girls, you know this called for an hour photoshoot (even with the security guards.)
Okay, so we may or may not have went to a few different dessert places. A few of us girls had a BIG sweet tooth. Plus, the night we came to Max Brennar Chocolate Factory is the night we say KATY PERRY!!! Ah, we were on such a high for a few hours. Pictured here is: S’mores Sundae, Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Crepe, and Heart Lava Cake with Ice cream and shot of expresso. So YUMMY YUMMY! This place is heaven. I would definitely recommend it!!!
Of course, I had to get my macaroon fix at Maison Laduree.
This was a pretty cool experience. I had the opportunity to go up 22 floors and see the NYE ball. It was beautiful and HUGE. Definitely exceeded my expectations and something I’ll never forget!!
FINALLY IT SNOWED!!! After 5 days of perfect weather, my parents and boyfriend come up for the weekend and it SNOWS. It was enough to make everything wet and FREEZING, but made for some good pictures. 😉
One of my favorite memories of the trip was the 9/11 Memorial. It was heartbreaking. They had real footage and audio in the museum and it was just horrific what those people went through that day. A day we will never forget. <3
You know I had to do the obligatory Gossip Girl photo at the “Met Steps”. Love that my boyfriend was a good sport and took it with me. 🙂
An absolute MUST if you are in NYC. Black Tap Burgers!!!! There is one in Soho which I don’t recommend because the restaurant is literally an alley, but there’s one in meatpacking district as well and way bigger. It is still a good 45 minute wait to get in but absolutely worth it. These milkshakes were beautiful and delicious. Best $15 EVER!!!
To finish off the trip, we walked the Brooklyn Bridge which was a great last view of the city!! So sad to leave the city, but glad I am home safe & sound. 🙂
This trip was definitely one for the books, I met a lot of great girls who will be lifetime friends and places I had never been before. My boyfriend finally got to experience a “real” taxi experience. I am glad to be home, but can’t wait until my next adventure! 🙂 Hope you guys have enjoyed my favorite memories of the trip as well.
