I know what I'm needin', and I don't want to waste more time.
I'm in a New York state of mind. -Billy Joel
Our weekend was fast and furious.
So, hold on...here's the run down...
First night on the town.
We ate at a delish Thai place, Peep.
the pad thai was to die for.
Also, their bathroom was freaky.
From the outside, it looked like a mirrored wall.
From the inside...you know, where you do your business...was glass.
you could see the entire restaurant.
I have never used the restroom so quickly. I thought, surely, someone could see me.
Perhaps, that's where the name came from?

b-fast the next morning was just down from our hotel at Local
super cute decor.
It really amazes me what New Yorkers can do with such a small space.
They just make it work
we enjoyed breakfast with this lady. She kept us laughing the whole time.
ok, not really. But, she was sitting by us outside with her super adorable little girl.
(also, can we please talk about Buzz's incredible fashion choices!)
we stayed in SoHo, next to Prince St, and it was the perfect location.
Scattered on the nearby streets were great little boutiques and hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
A charming (not so little) neighborhood

Saturday morning shopping
Girl! talk about overwhelming. and that's before we even get inside the stores
I was in sensory overload the entire weekend. Probably, why i came home empty handed.
i was too busy soaking up the scenes and sounds to focus on shopping.
I completely loved the time browsing with the gals, though.
we all snicker, gawk and swoon over pretty much the same things.

LC chose this as the musical to see (it was her birthday trip!)
and we were pumped!
It was incredible. the harmony, the dancing, the production. we all smiled the entire time.
I love musicals!
can't you tell by all the !!!!!?
Here's a taste:

Saturday night we treated ourselves to some Fig & Olive
it was all so fresh and filling (my 5months preggers body appreciated that part)
Rach's friend, Brett and our friend from college, Emily joined us for dinner.
We toasted Lauren's 30th, ate for a few hours and laughed our faces off (figuratively, of course)
(most photos cred: rach)
Sunday was a shorter day, as we all had to face reality and go back home
It really is nice to just walk through the city and take it all in.
really, though, there is too much to take in
(buzz's outfit, again!)
(just cred: rachel)
Central Park was a perfect ending to the trip.
We were all kind of tired from walking so much and just laid our bodies down in an open field.
We simply enjoyed being together and being in New York.
I'm so thankful for my friendship with each of these
girls, ladies...not sure what to call ourselves.
The time with them is always ridiculously short and leaves me aching for more.
Even if we didn't spend our weekend in NYC, it would've been perfect.
but, really, NYC was perfect.
and Happy Birthday Lauren (LC, Else, E's mom)!!!!
Thanks for the excuse to go to NYC!
(also, i rarely call Laura, Rachel, Lauren, or Kyla by their real name. nor do they call me katelyn)
thankful for great weekends and THE best friends,
