Birthday Getaway

I have been having a few computer internet connectivity issues.. hence the absence.

We had the most marvelous birthday weekend.. as most of you may have read M and I celebrate birthday's back to back which makes celebrating all the more fun. We are not big on gift giving and usually try to go on a little getaway.. whether it is local like a few years ago or last years trip to Vegas. This year was another year to keep it local. 

I caught a bus to New York City and met my husband for dinner. It was a crazy rainy day of course and the bus was 15 mins late but thankfully the restaurant was very understanding. We had a steak dinner at Del Frisco's and were both surprised when it ended with a dessert platter with two candles :) wherever I make a reservation and they ask if we're celebrating something special and we are I make a point of mentioning it no point in hiding it right? Sometimes it results in nothing and sometimes you get free dessert :) and no we did not take any pictures :(

Our bellies full and with time to spare we slowly strolled down to the Brook Atkins theater to watch Waitress the Musical. We had spectacular seats.. never have we sat this close to the stage.. and wow.. the show was wonderful. The entire cast had brilliant voices and though the lead was originally supposed to be performed by Sara Bareilles the understudy was just as amazing.

After the show we walked to the hotel.. we usually always end up going back home with me falling asleep on the way there and the magic of the night long gone.. staying in the city really made a difference. 

The next morning we were sadly up before 7 am, no matter what we do we just can't sleep in anymore.. no matter how much we want to.. we went down to the Flatiron District for breakfast at Sarabeth's.. oh my was it good.. M had the Almond Crusted French Toast and I the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

After breakfast we strolled around, took a picture in front of the Flatiron pretending to be all touristy, window shopped, ducked into a few shop until we made it to Washington Square Park.. 

then back up towards Union Square and stopped at a pizza place called Marta where we met up with some friends we hadn't seen in a long time. We were so busy talking and catching up we spent over three hours eating a pizza and once again forgot to take pictures.. :(

After lunch we were ready to head back home we caught a taxi to the bus station and we were back home before dinner..

Thank you for the zipper pouch and card love. My couch is more comfy than the dining room chair. I get more support for my back ^__^. Your book sounds very intense; it's crazy how ppl end up thinking of and planning murder.
