Even though spring here in NYC is off to a very lackluster start, I’ve been closely watching the tiny buds on the trees and religiously checking the 10-day weather forecast, and I believe warmer days are coming.
As I press my way through these remaining chilly days we’re having, the thing that helps me most is daydreaming about my list of things I’m looking forward to. I’m sharing my wish list in hopes it might inspire you to create your own and motivate you to go about checking things off the list too. Newness and life will be ushered in by spring, and it’s the perfect time to try something new in our lives too.
Fridays are special days around here. Because Sundays are like work days for us, Fridays are the new Saturdays. And it works out great, because we drop off Jameson at daycare, finish up a little work, and then have the day to relax, enjoy each other, and hopefully enjoy something new in the city.
This past Friday we headed down to the Lower East Side in pursuit of “the best pancakes in the city.”
In the spirit of celebrating my friend’s birthday, I suggested she and another girlfriend make a trip from D.C. up to NYC for some fun this past weekend. We had such a good time celebrating her in Vegas last year, that I figured it was worth repeating, even if just on a local level. It was great to celebrate her, and selfishly, I’m always looking for an excuse to get together with friends.
Here are a few highlights, which made for a really fun girlfriends weekend in NYC…
When Jordan and I were dating and living in different cities, we both looked forward to when the other person would visit, and we’d get to introduce them to our favorite food spots (mine in D.C. and his in NYC).
Since those very early days, Jordan has been telling me that I had to try this one spot in NYC with crazy unique burgers — a Slovakian burger that’s wrapped in dough and deep fried, to be exact.
On Saturday, Jordan and I put Jameson down for a nap, and figuring that we’d bought ourselves about an hour and a half of kid-free time, went about the business of relaxing. Jordan watched tv from the couch and I cooked lunch, all while beautiful snow was falling outside of our windows. Ahhhh.
