NYC Girls Weekend
Well, we sure had a lot of fun when I visited NYC with my mom and my best friend’s Mom and met my best friend up there. (Got that?)
It was SUCH a blast. We got to do such girly things, like get our make-up done at Saks and buy macaroons and see Newsies. Have you ever seen Newsies, the movie? The musical is incredible. Not only does it feature three things I love (boys, singing boys, singing and dancing boys), but it also features former cast members of SYTYCD. Big plus for such a big fan.
We had incredible food, first at Bistango, my gluten-free love in the Murray Hill area, and then at the Blue Water Grill, a restaurant that is bestie’s favorite and now one of mine, as well. Mahi over three cheese polenta? Yeah, OK. I’m in.
I also had my first martini (well, it was my mom’s, to be fair) and tried the first olive I’ve ever enjoyed. I’ve been trying olives every time I meet them for the past five years, and never before have I actually got past that first sour bite. And now I think I might be a convert, much to my delight. It’s so much cooler to get a dirty martini with three olives and a side of rocks than a Cosmo, IMHO.
Here are some pictures. Go see Newsies and go on a trip sometime with your Mom, your best friend, and her Mom. It was TOO much fun. Room happy hours and night caps are better with girl talk.
