Welcome To New York

First off, shout out to all of my amazing Instagram AND Twitter followers! You're a real gem if you're willing to put up with me and all my ramblings (Real Housewives live tweeting and excitement over's new releases are plentiful, let me tell ya) day in and day out. 

Secondly, if you are one of the lucky few who follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter then you probably know that I just came back from an amazing weekend getaway to New York City. Technically, I traveled to upper New Jersey to attend an annual convention held by an organization my father is a part of, but with our hotel being less than 15 miles from The City my siblings and I decided to hop on a bus... then a train... then another bus... then another train... then a subway (I had NO IDEA traveling in NYC was so cumbersome) to visit the Empire State Building, Times Square, 5th Avenue, Madison Square Park (where we just happened upon Madison Square Eats, an amazing pop-up market with delicious mango lemonade), the Flat Iron Building, the 9/11 Memorial, and Central Park throughout the weekend.

The trip was amazing and each time we traveled into the city I was more and more convinced that New York is indescribable because it was hardly what I was expecting it to be. I planned on writing this article and detailing where each picture was taken and doing a little brief about fun tourist-y things to do if you've never been to NY, but really all I have left to say is that if you've never been I highly suggest you go just for the great experience and if you have the opportunity to go in May make sure you stop by the limited time pop-up "shop" Madison Square Eats because for a little girl like me from a small town in Middle Tennessee it was like taste buds frenzy. And while you're there don't forget to check out Uma which serves interestingly tasty sushi rolls that are like the Asian version of burritos and whichever shop it is that serves the freshly made mango lemonade because it is to die for.
