Finnnnnally it’s Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend, who’s with me? I wanted to share my camera roll from our mini getaway to NYC last weekend for my hubby’s birthday. We had a lot of fun in the city packed into a few days. I love that we still live so close to the city, we have decided we are definite going to start going there more often on the weekends. We stayed at the Mondrian Soho, and since we brought our babe decided to upgrade to a one bedroom suite so there would be two rooms (basically, so we’d have room for a crib). If you’ve stayed in NYC, you know the hotel space is almost comical, especially if you need a place to set up a crib. But, I have to say the Mondrian has it figured out. I love the decor – the carpet is cobalt blue, and everything else is white – so fresh!
My little enjoying the Soho views from “her” room.
The view from the shower was pretty incredible – it would be amazing to shower there every day.
I love the architecture in Soho, it’s so beautiful. We spent the entire day on Saturday just walking around.
Of course, we had to make a pit stop at Georgetown Cupcake – never disappoints.
More views from our hotel – waking up with amazing views is one of the things I miss most about living in the city.
My little thought the city was so loud, HA! We thought this was so funny – she never did this when we lived there, but every time a siren would go off (or anything really), she would cover her ears.
We went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in the city (Isola Trattoria, which happens to be at the Mondrian) for my hubby’s bday dinner. It’s definitely a great date night spot, the decor is amazing, and the mood is very romantic. We had our favorite babysitter come to our hotel and stay with Sophia while we had a night out – it was so nice, we hadn’t done that since we moved.
Of course, we were up early the next morning with a toddler in tow, so we took full advantage and headed to one of the best breakfast/brunch spots in the city – Bubby’s in Tribeca. This is such a fun (and kid friendly!) brunch spot, you definitely need to go there if you visit NYC. The food is amazing. I had the huevos rancheros (SO good), and my hubby had one of the specials (can’t remember what it was, but he said it was one of the best breakfasts he’d ever had).
After brunch, we walked around Tribeca – my ultimate dream neighborhood in NYC. I think I’d move back to the city for the perfect Tribeca pad, too bad they’re so expensive. We humored ourselves and took a look at real estate postings as we walked by the real estate offices, and found our favorite for a cool $33 million – no biggie.
