the end. New York.

Our last full day in New York was one of my favorites.
We went to Norma's for Breakfast.

Enjoying my way expensive french toast. Seriously the best I've ever had.
Don't worry I haven't stopped loving OJ it was just $8 for one glass.... yikes.
David got the Wazzle.
A waffle covered in a fruit puree then torched and covered in a sugary glaze and topped with more fruit. It was only 1 waffle but he couldn't finish.
The best part was the personal maple syrup.
It was an amazing place to eat breakfast our last day in the city, but really expensive.
We made ourselves feel better by saying we were going out to celebrate me receiving my associates, and I deserved it! Botany was NOT easy!

On the way out we stumbled on this. And I'm so glad we did. Because of this.

We did some last time shopping in the big city and then David had a big surprise for me!
We took the Subway over to Central Park and walked through what felt like the whole park.
It's so gorgeous!
met color me katie here.

My Surprise. Loved it!
After the boat ride we went home showered, and changed. (Much needed after being splashed with pond water by the stranger.) David then took me out to dinner for our last hooray.
the end.

* I know I have more pictures so even though I say this is the end. It's probably not.

Lombardi's Date

Yes we went to Lombardi's AGAIN! but how could we not go again it's too good. It was so hot this day I felt disgusting. So we went home showered and changed before going out to dinner. It was so much fun. I wasn't lugging around water bottles, shopping bags, and whatever else. We just walked around and enjoyed ourselves.

While at dinner we sat close to Jennifer Love Hewitt who I mistook for an annoying girl. Seriously she was picking at this guy's hair like a monkey. Then I realized who it was. I was embarrassed for her. She sat there for a long time picking hair and taking pictures. Weird. Good thing I don't like her anyways or I would have been seriously disappointed.

After dinner we stumbled upon Little Italy again. Funny how we are always finding ourselves in places without planning it. We got some Gelato at a cute little cafe. We had to eat outside because it cost more to sit inside. I love New York and it's separation of the rich and poor.

It was a really fun night, and it felt so good to be clean instead of gross and sticky.

Lincoln Center

So beautiful it get's it's own post. It's very peaceful at night and the fountain drowns out some of the city noise, so you could just sit and think. Maybe make some paintings/art/wahtever. You can also see the temple while sitting on the fountain. It is a very nice place to be at night.

A NYC Sunday

We thought about going to church this day, but then decided not to. Maybe I shouldn't be admitting that on here but o well.It didn't even feel like Sunday it was amazing. It always feel's like Sunday in Rexburg even if you skip out.

be prepared we ate a lot of food aka. pizza this day. don't be grossed out.

We unsucessfully found a chinese resturant called the Lunch Box (we found it the next day) but I'm so glad we didn't because we found the most amazing pizza place. I can't compare it to Lombardi's because they are two different kinds. But this place had my kind of pizza. I don't know how to explain how the kind of pizza I like is different maybe even almost better then the kind of good Lombardi's provides. Let's just say it was my favorite and I will go a lot when we live there. I can't remember the name but it was right next to the Empire State building.

For dinner we had.... Pizza. I know. We really love Pizza you have no idea. We went to Patsy's and then had planned to go to Serendipity after. Little did I know there was a Patsy's right down the street from serendipity, we walked forever from Patsy's to Serendipity only to have to wait another hour for a table. I should have known there was a Patsy's close by because me and my mom ate there when I went back in High School only we didn't know we were eating at (so i've heard) one of the best pizza places in the city. So we walked around trying to find another place to get dessert but couldn't, gave up, and went back to Serendipity. It was ridiculous! However we did end up meeting the guy from Will and grace. It was a silly night.

Another day in NYC

Saturday was our tourist day. We went to most of the big tourist spots.
Grand Central was beautiful we spent a good amount of time just standing around looking at the ceiling and people.

Then we went to the library. This was tricky to find because there are a lot of libraries in New York, but we found the one and only. Sadly the front of the building was being renovated I wanted to see the front in all it's glory. However the inside was still gorgeous. We weren't allowed to take pictures in the famous reading rooms but it was gorgeous however not as big as they make it look on TV.

We also went to Ground Zero, they have started building the memorial so there wasn't much to see of the actually sight but they did have a place for people to go to see a model of what the the new memorial and building would look like and a time line of what happened that day with peoples stories.

Of course there was a lot of shopping and a lot of walking.

I love this building.
I promise I am going to wrap up our New York trip this week. I need to. I can't remember what we did exactly each day. I guess that's not a big deal but I would like to be able to.
