so our trip to NYC... we really did have sooooo much fun.
the city really is amazing, not to mention that my sister lives there :)
for me, that is what the trip was about... visiting my sister.
she spoiled us all.
here are some pics and stories to document the trip.
i am genuinely sad (mad) i didnt take more pictures... of more of the places we went.
(like all the places we ate, the markets, china town, dave and i at Chicago, and a picture of dave at all would have been nice.)
oh well, i'll get over it... just another reason to go back someday. i am however slowly forgiving myself for not getting more pics... well, because i was trying to keep track of a 2 year old in NYC. i suppose that is a bit more important than fulfilling my scrapping desires. on to the trip...
first stop... MSLO, workplace of my sister.
VERY VERY cool environment... white, glass, clean lines, fun organization... with hints of color and creativity everywhere... we got to see the test kitchen and some studios... so much fun. we got to meet quite a few of my sister's co-workers... all of whom were so so so friendly and nice. beautiful people. inside and out.
then, dinner here... dallas BBQ. dave loved it... i'm not a big BBQ fan, but it was good.
ok, what next. (not sure that i'll be going in order anymore...)
let's just keep talking about food...
(can i say that i have been craving these next 2 places since we got home... and probably will continue to do so until i go back.)
i had MOO SHU FANTASIA (Sauteed shredded cabbage, carrot, glass noodles, mushrooms and soy protein. Served with 4 wheat crêpes) and this. um... yeah. my sister also introduced us to 'edamame'... soy beans.... yummmmm. for real, they are great, i just tracked some down at whole foods market here in town :)
omg... seriously people... it was sooooooooo delicious.
here i had... Spaghetti alla Carbonara - Bacon, Onions, Cream Sauce ... tasty and sinful... hey, i was on vacation!!
do yourself a favor, and eat at both of these places if you ever go to NYC. you'll thank me later :)
we also ate at bubba gump's. im not much for fish, but dave said his mahi mahi was the best he's ever had.
melissa surprised mom and i with pedicures, tasti d-light (YUMM!! yeah, you better get yourself some of this too), and some yummy chocolates... as a belated mother's day gift. soooo much fun to be pampered! oh, and i also got some fun scrapbook goodies at a very fun paper store with my bday gift certificate from my sister :)
the subway... an interesting experience. or what lilly likes to refer to as 'noisy'... and said 'i'm ready' every time it made a stop...
ok, i think that is all for now!! (i've been writing this entry over the past 3 days... so i think i better post it now!!) plus, lovely blogger is not letting me add anymore pics at the moment, so ill post more. separately. later.
have a great weekend!!
