48 Hours in NYC!
We just got back from our quickie trip to NYC this weekend, and I wanted to share some photos before I get propelled into the busy week!
We came for the MacKenzie-Childs meetup that I had at their Manhattan store and reallllly wanted to make it a longer trip, but with our kitchen still in pieces, it just wasn’t in the cards. Totally okay because I have to come back soon anyway! So of course, the eats.
On Friday, we went to Franny’s in Brooklyn JUST for the white clam pizza. Holy cow. That pizza was one of the best flavors I’ve ever had and you can be sure I’m already recreating it. It was AMAZING – caps lock necessary. We also got the pizza with meatballs (I don’t love meatballs, but everyone else loved this one!) and the margherita. So, so good.
Annnnd since we were so close, a quick little late night trip to Doughnut Plant. I was so full from the pizza that I only tasted the pistachio yeasted (which was to die for) and the tres leches (also incredible) but everyone was dying over every doughnut.
Especially Max. Of course.
Eddie said the red velvet was great and my friend Natalie said the peanut butter and jelly was perfect.
It was SO chilly and rainy and generally miserable on Friday and Saturday, which was such a bummer because this is the first time Max has been here since he can walk – and we love walking and exploring! I was so poorly prepared wardrobe wise that on Friday night I wore a lululemon windbreaker OVER a denim jacket because I was so cold. I seriously looked like an idiot. But I was warm. How can I pack all the seasons for Max, but not for myself?!
Saturday was the meetup!!! IT WAS SO FUN! Thank you guys so much for coming! I loved meeting everyone and the minute I walked into the store, I died… how adorable was this setup?!
Aside from the miserable rain, Max was having a major toddler day. We tried to get about 50 pictures throughout the day with the 3 of us and he wouldn’t have any of it. He refused to take off his coat and kept yelling “walk outside!” He was just so excited about the city, so Eddie walked him back and forth for the four hours of the meetup, in the rain, mostly to watch construction and so he could see as many buses as possible. HAHAHAHA. It was too cute.
This was essentially his attitude the entire time. He wanted to color in all the books! And refused all photos and smiles.
After the event, we did a quick shake shack run (we don’t have shake shack and we were in an almost 2-year withdrawal!) in the rain and then had a wild and crazy toddler night in the hotel with Max crashing at 5:45. He refused to nap all day, but he ended up sleeping for 14 hours straight!
Thankfully this morning we got to take him out and explore a little bit. Eddie and I have been to NYC a million times together pre-Max, so we didn’t care about making organized plans. But we wanted to walk Max through Central park and show him a few other fun things!
And that was our quickie trip!
It ended with Eddie getting two sandwiches and grabbing me an almond croissant from Bouchon for the road… which was an excellent idea. Of course!
Hope you had a great weekend! xo
