Fun in NYC

Part of my stress leading up to the marathon was because we were going TO NEW YORK WITH NO KIDS and I wanted to savor every single second. And eat every delicious thing in the city. We were incredibly lucky to get to stay with one of Sol's friend's sister--in a gorgeous apartment right off Central Park. We flew out of Houston early Saturday morning--but enjoyed not hauling kids through the airport and getting to sleep or do whatever we wanted on the flight.

Sunday was pretty much dedicated to the race--but after resting and showering we headed out to Times Square to see Rock of Ages. It was a lot of fun and the perfect choice because it appealed more to the menfolk than most shows. We ate a ton of pasta at Carmine's afterwards and were full and happy.

On Monday we WALKED. Over 8 miles. I was hurting for some of it but think it was really helpful in getting me to recover quickly. We went to the J Crew Bridal Store for me to try on dresses, had lunch at a sweet cafe and walked to LaDuree for some authentic Parisian macarons. Of course.

I can't even tell you how fabulous it was to spend some time with my favorite dude with no one interrupting us. SO fabulous. We did a pretty impressive job navigating the city--I think we only got on the wrong train once. I normally find New York overwhelming but I enjoyed every second this time! And Sol was a great sport--pretty much everything we did was exactly what I wanted, and he humored me in letting me take pictures of ridiculous landmarks for friends and eating all the macarons.

  1. It sort of appears like you photoshopped the bottom two photos - you both look SO similar in both photos.

    1. I was only going to post one--then I decided I liked them both and I didn't care. :)

  2. Sol is a pretty cool dude. So happy you guys got a weekend away! You deserve it! Can't wait for Boston 2016!
