weekend in the city

by Joanna on September 30, 2012

Last weekend I went to New York for a girls weekend.

I took the bus up on Saturday morning and navigated myself to Jen’s apartment on the Upper East Side.

Not kidding when I say that the only reason I didn’t get on the subway going the wrong direction was because when I looked at the photo in. my. phone. I realized the sign said downtown. Yikes.

We met up with the girls at Max Brenner.

Even though it was three in the afternoon, I had to get the chocolate chip pancakes. They did not disappoint.

Then we wandered around for the afternoon/early evening before having dinner and drinks.

On Sunday morning, we planned to meet for brunch at Hannah’s apartment in Brooklyn. Jen and I decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on our way.

It was a gorgeous day, perfect for a walk.  Also perfect for brunch outside on the terrace followed by a visit to a nearby park.

Mid-afternoon, I met Amanda for another walk, this time in Battery Park.

We also stopped for a snack and had some delicious sangria and great conversation at a perfect window seat.

After my afternoon with Amanda, I headed to meet some of my favorite people from high school for dinner.

After some debate we decided as a table to go for the Sunday Supper: whole fried chicken and a bunch of sides, an appetizer, and dessert! Great decision.

Monday I spent the day with Jen. We got bagels, mani-pedis, stopped in to see her mom and 4-month old niece, had Thai food for lunch, and did a little shopping.

I wanted to show you my manicure–I went a little trendy and got one different color nail–but I forgot to take a picture and now they’re all chipped.

I hopped on a 5:00 bus back to DC.

I read O, The Oprah Magazine, and watched an episode of Downton Abbey. We made great time back to DC getting in around 9:20.

It was a great weekend filled with some great girl time.  Love girl time.
