Out and About in NYC

Hello There!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of going on a girls trip with my bestie (Laila) to NYC!  We had an amazing trip full of laughter and inspiration while Rich stayed home on daddy duty.  

We arrived on Friday afternoon and immediately checked into our hotel, The Waldorf Astoria!  This hotel is so beautiful and you feel like you are transported back into a time when Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and every President of the United States since Hoover has stayed.  You can feel the history in every corner of the hotel.  

The hotel is so beautiful!  I am in love with the concrete and gold look (can't you tell from our candles).

This is the lobby.  I mean how beautiful is this?  Laila and I checked in, grabbed a glass of wine at Peacock Alley (the bar) and went to our room.  The room was a bit outdated but it was nice to be transported back in time.  This hotel is set to undergo a major renovation in the spring so it was nice to be able to experience the old charm before its gone!

The rest of the weekend we explored the city.  We ate amazing food and walked A LOT.  On Saturday it started snowing!  We are two girls from the south so the snow made the city even more magical.

By the end of the day the city was covered in snow!  I kept saying "wow this is like a foot of snow", but kept getting corrected (it was really only about an inch or two).  Can't you tell that i don't experience snow that often?

We met up with my cousin, Will, who runs his own blog Scrimshaw Collective.  He was an awesome tour guide! The snowy city at night is so magical!
