I had such a great week with my husband!! Monday I flew into New York to be with Drew for a few days. Flying without kids is an amazing experience. I didn't even care that I had a layover. Being able to sleep, read a book, listen to my ipod or just sit and relax was so nice. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love my kids and they are both amazing fliers but wow that was so easy by myself. After landing I took a taxi to our hotel. The firm was paying so of course it was a nice one. The best part was the view!
That night we went to dinner, Wendy's is so good and cheap, then to Best Buy to look for Nintendo Wii games and accessories and picked up a few books at Barnes & Noble. Shopping in America is so fun. We also stopped at Junior's our favorite New York Cheesecake spot.
The next morning Drew had to work so I went up to Westchester to visit a few friends. We made some great friends in the short time we lived in Westchester. Hopefully, they still remember us when we get back. After one friend went into labor I headed back to the city for a nice lunch at Drew's favorite restaurant. The food is amazing. I absolutely loved it!
After that I went out shopping and Drew went back to work. Later that night we watched a movie and just chilled.
The next morning was the big day! Drew was being sworn in to the New York Bar. It was great it took a whole 15 minutes! I was really glad I was there but couldn't believe how short it was. Why was law school graduation so long? Here's a clip of the important part...
After that we went to Grimaldi's. Their pizza is the best! They have good root beer too. Man I love food in New York. Good thing my doctor told me to gain some weight! After filling up on pizza we met up with Chrislynn, Drew's sister. She's so sweet to trek into the city pregnant and with her little guy Richie. It was really nice seeing her and being able to spend time together.
After saying good bye to Drew I met a few friends for dinner. It was so good seeing some of our old law school friends. I really loved our time living in the City. We had such a great experience and met some of the coolest people. I hope to keep in contact for a long time no matter where we live.
The next morning I had an early flight out of New York. Thanks so much Maggie and Aaron for letting me stay at your place! It was so nice being able to see my husband and friends. I miss everyone but I also missed my two little kiddos. Thanks so much to everyone that helped out! I really appreciate it!
