Happy Thoughts:


New York

This weekend I took a spontaneous road trip with my husband's cousin to New York. I have always wanted to go there and finally I was able to go. It's always been a dream of mine to go there, and I never thought I'd actually get to go. It felt amazing! I'm totally in love with it, and I could see myself living there someday. The city was amazing, so much culture, different ethnicites, languages, and it was beautiful! 

We made our way all around the city we took the subway, we walked for hours, and we even had this cute little Italian guy drive us around Central Park in a pedi-cab. Central park was so much fun. It's so big though! I never ealized how big it was. There are tons of things to do there alone.

There is this bridge in the middle of Central Park that looks normal from the top, but when you go underneath it's the most amazing thing, the walls are all tile and have the beautiful designs. I could have spent hours in the one spot.

Our main goal of the day, for some reason, was to eat at Gray's Papaya. If you've ever seen the movie "Fools Rush In" You'll know what I'm talking about. It's the hotdog place that he loves so much, and he has reason... the hot dogs were SOOOO good!

We took the subway and made our way alllll the way to the other side of the city to see the Statue of Liberty. We didn't wanna take the ferry across the island so we just admired it from afar. There were too many other things we wanted to do.

We saw the most amazing view of the city when we went to see the brooklyn bridge, this is where I completely fell in love...

After that we had enough site seeing and ventured downtown to do some shopping. The shops were so cheap and had the cutest clothes we shopped for what felt like forever! and took some great pics downtown as well.

I love vities with tons of architecture and details and they definitely have it, I found myslef taking tons of pictures of the buildings. They were just so pretty!

We stood on the pier for a long time just looking at the view, and watching the helicopters take off from the heliport. It was such a beautiful day!

We stayed pretty late, we wanted to get a taste of the nightlife which was so much fun, we ventured through Chinatown, and Little Italy. I loved little Italy. THe music and restaurants were so romantic I can't wait for our trip there for our anniversary.
