The City Doesn’t Sleep and Neither Do I…

This past girlie weekend was a BLAST! Karen and I took a little road trip down to NYC on the bus to visit our buddy, MaryAnn, for a weekend of non-stop fun.

Get ready for a few photo friendly posts recapping my weekend!

It started with an evening bus ride after work. We chatted, napped and woke up ready to party it up in the middle of NYC.

We met up with MaryAnn (who lives in NYC) and spent the rest of the evening catching up and enjoying a few drinks. By the time we rolled home it was almost 3am. WHO AM I?! The lack of sleep didn’t stop us from popping up early the next morning to fuel up for a walking photo tour of the West Village.

 

The tour was put on by Photo Walk-Abouts. It was a nice mixture of history, photo opportunities and just basic wondering around. Here is a quick look at some of the photos that came from our tour.

 
 
 

I loved that there were signs of spring EVERYWHERE!

The Village has wonderful architecture and so many things to check out. I was amazing at all the cool shots I found just by taking a minute to look around me.

 
 
 
 
 
 

The grounds were beautiful within Church of Saint Luke in the Fields. I could easily see myself sitting in the garden, knitting with an iced coffee in hand, and watching the flower bloom.

 

 
 
 

 

Once we were done with our tour, we were famished! We made a little pit stop at a place called The Pink Tea Cup. It was so nice that we were able to sit on the porch area and do a little people watching while we ate.

 
Drinks were consumed. Pink Mojioto, Watermelon Honey Lemonade, Water!

Mmm…honey!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Lovely lunch company.

From there we did a little walking around and made our way to our next stop, Mood Fabrics! Karen and I had Groupons and were on the quest to get some awesome fabric from THE fabric place for the Project Runway peeps.

Next post…Mood Fabrics, Dinnah, a crazy show and a girlie brunch to say good-bye to NYC! Here is a little taste of what is to come…creeeeeeppppyyyy.
