Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I had absolutely the best weekend! My weekend actually continues today because schools are closed for Rosh Hashanah. On Friday, my college friend and maid of honor, Elizabeth, flew into New York. I had Friday off work too so I picked her up from the airport early in the morning and we headed straight to Carlo's Bakery.
I got a cannoli and a cream puff and we ate them by the water, taking in the early morning view of the Manhattan skyline. Then, we headed to do some local boutique shopping. This is my favorite kind of shopping but I haven't hit up all my favorites lately since going back to work. We stopped for lunch and ate outside and enjoyed a few Octoberfest blue moons. Yum!
The next morning, Elizabeth, Brittany (another sorority sister), and a couple friends went to brunch at Calle Ocho on the Upper West Side. I've never done brunch here but it was amazing. Unlimited sangria in really awesome flavors with any entree purchase. Clearly we enjoyed several, then headed to do some sight seeing.
We stopped by Belvedere Castle in Central Park then headed to the Frying Pan in Chelsea. The Frying Pan has been on my list for a really long time but I haven't been since I moved to the area. It is a bar in an old boat that is docked on the Hudson. It was a really neat bar that I'll definitely be frequenting more (at least until it gets cold in about two weeks, ha.)
We took a walk on the High Line (which is an above ground park on an old railroad bed) and then checked out a couple bars.
We headed to Shake Shak for dinner and we may or may not have chosen to go there because of the movie Something Borrowed. I rarely eat a cheeseburger and fries but this one was so worth it. Whatever is in the Shak sauce is pretty awesome.

Yesterday, Corey and I did brunch then relaxed most of the day. We watched football and Mad Men reruns on Apple TV and made homemade chicken noodle soup and fresh baked bread in our new bread machine for dinner. Yum!

Happy Monday!
