Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made

Sorry again for ignoring the blog for so long! J & I just got back from a 9-day trip to New York City, my second city and second home. Only a 7 hour plane ride, we try to go back every time I start missing my friends like crazy. Since 2010 was such a busy year for us, this would be our first trip back since 2009. Nothing changed though, I still felt at home, I still chose a downtown hotel, and we still go back to Max Brenner even though we know how sick we feel after each time we eat there!

For those planning a major shopping trip, I highly recommend taking a trip to NY's renowned shopping outlet, Woodbury Commons. Many rent cars, but since we are not used to driving on the other side, I suggest taking a bus from Port Authority that costs $43 per adult. The trip is only an hour long, and the return trip is open and you get to choose when you'd like to go back to Port Authority. Don't forget to bring a little suitcase or a carry on bag to stuff all the shopping!

A NYC favorite of ours are little mini cupcakes Baked By Melissa. She has, literally, a "hole in the wall" stand in SOHO where each cupcake is sold for a dollar. (6 for $5.50 and 12 for $10). They are tiny, but oh so moist and tasty! My personal favorites are red velvet and mint chocolate chip. You must also checkout Shake Shack at Madison Square Park, where people can wait for hours just to get a bite of the juicy Shack Burger and their cheese fries.

I think I just may start a new blog just on New York! There are so many things to see and do, but I must say nothing would have been so awesome without my amazing friends! xxx
