Girl's weekend in the city.

A couple of weekends ago, I had a girls weekend in the city. I’d been looking forward to this weekend for months.

Two years ago, I had a girls weekend with my best college girlfriends and we promised to do it the following year. Well, life got in the way and we were not able to do it but we certainly made up for it!

I talked about them a couple of years ago in this post if you would like to know a little back story about our friendships.

Unfortunately, Sherie was not able to make it so it wasn’t 100% complete because we missed her sassiness but we still managed to have the best time. I’ve seen Jihae (happy birthday Jihae!) and Stacy a few times in the last two years but Charmion I had not seen in two years so it was great to be reunited. She is the most chill of all of us. No joke; we tease her about how chill she is. Nothing bothers her.

We were not able to begin the weekend on Friday evening like two years ago but I did manage to get to the city early on Saturday that way I could feel like I had the whole day. We stayed at The Kimberly which wasn't the most convenient because construction is going on right now and their valet service is pretty much a joke to the dismay of Stacy who had driven to the city. Good hotel (think old time castle decor) but due to something they cannot control we won't be heading back until the construction is done.

After we checked in we had plans to go to the Met museum. Let's just say that shopping got in the way, majorly. Basic.

We did dinner at Sushisamba and then after we went bar hopping and proceeded to have the most random, fun night. It ended at a trip to Rite Aid to pick up some snacks at almost three in the morning and then when we got back to our hotel we just laughed and talked (we already have our next reunion planned for next year, God's Willing) until we fell asleep.

You see that gem on the right? It's their amazing version of s'mores! You roast it in the fire and it gets nice and warm and when you bite into it it is cold because of the ice cream. It was so incredibly good. It took so much out of us not to order another round.

We woke up a little later than we intended and had brunch at The National and I seriously had the best potatoes I've ever had.

I don't know if I should even mention the amount of time I spent checking out all the fishes at the hotel. I guess there are some people who were born to be cool and others who were not. I'm in the latter.

I did not take nearly as many pictures as I intended. I seriously slacked and the pictures I did take were taken quickly without much thought into it. I really just wanted to savor the time with these beautiful women that I've been so lucky to call girlfriends for fifteen years. I feel I've been really blessed in the friendship department and am so, so grateful for it. Lord knows I've needed them in the last few years and I've never been disappointed. I hope that I'm as a good friend to them as they are to me. ♥

What a fun weekend for you ladies!!
Tell me more about this s'more and ice cream concoction. It sounds like something I'd probably need seconds (let's be real, thirds) of!

Girls weekends are so good for the soul. Looks you guys had such a great time. By the way, my big boys are sitting next to me and they both screamed "Nemo" when they saw the second to last picture :). Hehehehehe, you are appealing to kids too :)

Oh I love this! My sisters and I are trying to do a girls trip next year. It is always fun! I love the hotel pictures. Too bad it wasn't as great as you'd expect. I guess with the busyness of the city, it is hard to do a ton of construction during the day which might be a reason.
But bad valet? Ick!!! There's no excuse for it.
Glad you had a great time though.

"Huge hoops will always be my favorite." <-- me too. I wear them ALL the time.

I can't believe it was two years ago ?! I feel like you just posted about your weekend spent with them. Time Flies.

I want to try the smores/icecream business. Your food looks amazing. (both meals)

I'm the latter too and Nemo fishes rock ! That's okay that you took less photos than you intended sometimes it's just good to hang with the people who are near and dear- especially if you haven't seen them in a couple years. I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend.
