As a little birthday treat, the mister decided that we should take a trip to New York to visit our good friends that we hadn’t seen in almost a year. We didn’t have a ton of time but we finally agreed that five days in the city would do us some good. And honestly, it was just what we needed.
Our only two goals were to see our friends and eat good food. Mission accomplished. We managed to eat delicious Italian food at Frank, demolish Doughnut Plant’s PB&J doughnut, indulge in a giant scoop at Big Gay Ice Cream, eat way too many fries at The Grange, buy out all the cookies at the Momofuku Milk Bar, and top it off with spicy ramen and buns at the Momofuku Noodle Bar.
Eating aside, we were able to spend quality time with the people we love. We even met up with another travel blogger, Dani, who we had previously seen in Finland and Sri Lanka as well as one of our best friends, Ashley who was thrilled (and hilariously shocked) when we told her of the new adventurer on the way.
This trip–albeit short–was exactly what we needed. Here’s to hoping we make it back once more before the baby arrives.
