NYC Photo Diary #2

NYC feels like it was forever ago. Tyler and I couldn't have asked for better company and hospitality in the big city. It was a big step for "us" being able to meet each other's high school and college friends. Since I'm from the West Coast, he's barely met any of the girls and guys that played a huge part in my life. You can tell stories about them, but it's just not the same. I'm grateful he was able to witness the wonderful, hot messes we really are and even more grateful he's accepting of it.

Some of these pictures are from the day I met up with my high school and college friend, Danielle, as well as a couple fabulous ASU DG's, Jessica and Kendall. What I thought was going to be a quick bite to eat, turned into a boozey brunch at Poco. Several glasses of sangria and horseradish bloody mary's later, we stumbled into a beautiful secret garden and determined a drunken photo shoot was necessary. Since my plans for shopping went out the window after the second sangria, we ended up meeting Tyler and his buddies at McSorley's Old Ale House. This bar dates back to 1854 and obviously has a lot of history {read good ole' wiki here if interested}. In regards to beer, you have the option of "light or dark" - nothing fancy - and a round consists of two beers per person. I thought I ordered two beers by accident, but turns out that it's just their standard. After we finished a couple more rounds, I parted ways with the girls and continued on to Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. Needless to say, it was the most entertaining treat - EVER. Tyler and I had a hungover date night in Little Italy filled with pasta, more wine, cannolis and espresso before heading to bed early in preparation for shopping the next/last day. We did some quick damage before heading to Times Square and stumbling upon Bouchon Bakery where an obligatory box of macaroons was purchased. Due to a time crunch, we didn't get to indulge in the airy treats until we sat down in the airport - but they were definitely worth the wait This was Tyler's first macaroon experience and I am happy to report it was verrryyy positive. 

This is the last of my bajillion pictures - ENJOY!
