This past weekend, my cousin Julie came to visit all the way from Miami. Having visitors is always an adventure because A) sharing The Shoebox is just silly fun and B) getting to see New York through someone else's eyes is refreshing.
J and P at 5 Napkin Burger for dinner.
My favorite... Lobster roll sliders.
I told Jules we could do anything she wanted... and she wanted to go to the Empire State Building!
Believe it or not, I'd never been and I'm SO glad we went. The views were amazing, and we saw a couple get engaged! I couldn't help noticing how pretty the ring was and how cute the boy was... Naughty Teddi.
Dinner at Stanton Social! So so good.
My favorite cocktail at SS... the Strawberry Fields.
Grey Goose Citron, muddled strawberries, lemon syrup, fresh lemon and a Riesling floater.
Will most definitely be recreating at home this summer.
We had brunch with Jamie and her kiddos at Alice's Tea Cup. Yum!
Except for a bit of rain on Sunday, the weather was absolutely gorgeous... clear, sunny and breezy. We had a great time exploring NYC by foot. Jules, you are the perfect houseguest. Come again soon!
