Weekend Antics.

Just to warn you, this is a long post.  And about halfway through I lost it all, threw a little temper tantrum and then started all over again. Life is tough. Hopeful I learn from my mistakes..

This weekend was a little bit of a crazy one.  We met up with friends ate/drank a ton and explored different places in Manhattan.  All in all it was pretty amazing.  Sunday was a day of husband/wifeness.  Is that not a thing?!  We had a lazy morning and then decided to walk the High Line Park and see where the day took us. It was an amazing day of just wandering.  Get ready for an overabundance of pictures..

The High Line is just beautiful and they have done an amazing job with it.  There are flowers everywhere and patches of grass to picnic on.

There was a zoo in the middle.

{You didn’t think I meant a real zoo did you?!}

Amazing art.

SO beautiful!  I found this restaurant while we were walking along that looked amazing! It’s called The Artichoke Basille’s Pizza.  Artichokes and Pizza?!  You know I can’t say no to that.

Image

But no, we did not eat there.  Maybe someday.  Although, unfortunately, they do not deliver to Washington Heights.  I checked.

After walking the whole High Line we wandered around the Meat Packing District for awhile and then towards Chelsea where we found this…

Image

YES!  I have been excited about this for ages!  We finally got to go!

It’s really nice inside, all brick which I love!

Image

And there was so much goodness everywhere!!!!  So much temptation it was hard to say no.  There were cupcake shops and bakeries and gelato oh my!  It was pretty much like heaven! We walked through a really cool place called the Fat Witch Bakery.  They bake all kinds of brownie-esque goodies which are named witches, and being the lover of Halloween that I am, I thought it was pretty awesome!

We tried some fantastic brie that melted in our mouths like butter and some cookie butter which was also pretty great.  Luckily, we managed to get out without gaining twelve pounds.

After the market we were pretty hungry and decided to find dinner.  On our walk we noticed some pretty funny places.

{I took this one for my Dad, but I thought it was cute.  Right next door was Tea & Sympathy and Carry On Tea & Sympathy.}

We found a place doing happy hour and early diner deals so we stopped there.  J had some sort of chicken over mashed parsnips, while I ate a sea bass.  The food was pretty good but the atmosphere not so much.  Overall, it was an okay place.

{Why so serious J?}

After dinner we planned to see a movie in Union Square so we found a Duane Reade to stock up on supplies.  Water, Swedish Fish, Riesins, Jelly Bellies.  You know, the usual.  Can’t watch a movie without popcorn.  We decided to see the Dark Knight Rises and I liked it.  I think J is pretty lucky that I always want to see boy movies.  I CANNOT WAIT until the new Bourne movie comes out.  I’m in love with Jeremy Renner. What?  Who said that?

Continuing our weekend into Monday night we met up with one of J’s old friends from ships that he hasn’t seen for 5 years!  It was a blast!  I enjoyed meeting her after so long.

We hit up the infamous Blockheads for some Mexican food and Red Nose Bulldogs (you have to experience to understand).  Amazing.  Moved on our usual route to the Pig and Whistle for some beers and we ended up being out so late we had to make a stop at ahemmcdonaldsmhm. What?

Anyway, we had an amazing weekend!  But now I have to recover.

Byeeee.
