In New York City...

Cristhian and I didn't do much this week (since we were emotionally drained from telling our families news about Baby B). Knowing that we had an exhausting weekend in NYC prevented us from really exerting too much energy.

On Friday, S, and his friend, A, made their way to my home in Connecticut from Merrimack Valley. Shortly after, Cristhian came home with his sister, B. We five partied watching American Ninja Warrior... until two in the morning. And of course we woke up much later than we wanted to- we didn't end up leaving central Connecticut until nearly noon! With traffic, we got into Queens at 2. S and A left and went off to Brooklyn. From there, Cristhian, SIL and I were fortunate enough to check in early. After replenishing our systems (and charged our phones!) we made our way into Times Square to meet up with my cousin and her boyfriend. After eating at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., we just walked around Times Square. ... I SO wanted to grab food from The Halal Guys, but the lines for each cart was so incredibly long that I was just like, "EHHHH. WHATEVS!" After parting ways with cousin L and her boyfriend, the rest of us made our way back to Queens. EVERYTHING is open in NYC... it's basically 24 hours all day, every day! We found a Chinese take out spot and bought some 6 packs (and soda for me) and binged in our hotel room. Needless to say, we slept so well!

After getting ready and checking out at noon, we ate some good ol' dim sum. NOM! I haven't had dim sum in sooooo long.

After, we made our way to the 9/11 Memorial. Sad life. Then the Chinatown and Little Italy sections were where we went. We had a deliciously crispy, yet ooey gooey pizza from Sal's. The prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato grinder Cristhian got was also out of this WORLD! It was ridiculous!

Overall, it was a great weekend full of relaxing and semi-sight seeing. Can't wait for the next one!

How was your weekend?!
