NYC Part 2 and a Celeb Spotting

Happy 1st day of summer everyone!  I guess that means that these 90 degree temps and 80% humidity are appropriate now?  My sister and I made it home from NYC yesterday just in time to sit on the couch and watch True Blood.  Traveling is exhausting.  Anyway, back to recapping my NYC weekend, did you miss part 1?

NYC Weekend So Far

Saturday morning after a breakfast of bagels, we set out on an adventure of the city.  My sister hasn’t really seen much of NYC so we wanted to show her around.  Of course the many parks and dog runs were a high priority.

Union Square Park

And of course a stop in the Union Square Lululemon shop was a necessity, the bf got a little nervous when he saw me talking to a sales lady.  I escaped without spending my whole savings account though.

We went into Crumbs and just stared at all the cupcakes, they all look so amazing.

Washington Square Park

I was about ready to jump in this fountain, it was so hot!  Both my sis and I ended up with sunburnt shoulders, woops.  And of course we stopped for some self-serve froyo, because no trip to NYC is complete without it.

After and exhausting afternoon of sightseeing, we all needed a nap.  The three of us passed out for a little while, and woke up to start getting ready for dinner.  My one request of the weekend (besides froyo obviously) was to go to my favorite Mexican place, Hop Devil Grill.  They have the best sangria, and I’m obsessed.  It’s located on St. Marks between 1st Ave and Ave A.

After stuffing ourselves to the brim, we moved on to Horseshoe Bar on the corner of 7th Ave and Ave B where we spent the remainder of the night playing games like Photo Hunt, Lawn Darts, and Big Buck Hunter.  My sister was amazed at my bison killing skills.  She was pretty excited about spending the majority of the evening in Alphabet City because she is as obsessed with RENT as I am.  Her and I thought it would be completely appropriate to burst into song and dance in the middle of the street, but the boys disagreed so we refrained.  Our night ended with a few Natty Lights and Man vs. Food episodes at home, all in all a success.

Sunday I managed to sleep in until 10:30, which is amazing because lately I’m always wide awake at 8:30.  After lounging around for a bit, the bf, sis, and I went out for a little run.  I wore my new Lululemon shorts with a back pocket, so I was finally able to bring my camera to take some pics of the path we always run along.

Luckily there was a great breeze coming off the water yesterday that kept us a lot cooler than if we had been running through the city.  Yesterday was so hot and humid!

Group runs are so much more fun than running solo, I loved having the bf and sis with me.  After a run through the Stuyvesant Town sprinklers and a round of cold showers for each of us, we again set out to explore more of the city.  This time we ended up in Soho, where I had my first celeb spotting!  There I was walking down the street and a very skinny lady was walking towards me.  My first thought was “wow she is very thin”, then “she kind of looks like Rachel Zoe”, finally “OMG that is Rachel Zoe!”.  Rachel Zoe and her husband walked right by me on the sidewalk!  I used to watch her show, The Rachel Zoe Project, on Bravo all the time, so I was pretty excited.  And yes, she is that skinny in real life.

All in all, it was a very fun and eventful weekend, and I am exhausted today.  Luckily I only have to get through 10 days of work before I’m off on my week-long OBX vacation.  I hope everyone had a great weekend, try to have a great Monday as well!

  1. I’m severely jealous of your tan. And weekend. But mostly your tan… lol

    Your run looks like it was gorgeous!

  2. I love the lulu shorts!! I have the same ones and I freaking adore them…which sucks because now I want to own every item they sell.

    • I went in two separate lulu stores in NYC over the weekend and had to restrain myself from purchasing everything, the shorts are amazing.

  3. Ahhh, can’t believe you saw Rachel Zoe!!! She kind of scares me…but I would have been SUPER excited about seeing her!

    I love how the bf is copping a feel in that running pic 🙂

    3. As does the sangria
    4. LOVE those shorts! Too cute
    5. The white shirt is sooo cute! Where did you get it?
    Love ya!

    • Aww thanks girl, and the white shirt is BCBG from last summer, I dunno if they still have them, but they made dresses this year that are exactly the same.

  5. I LOVE the pictures!! You look adorable in all of them. Also, how cool is it that you saw Rachel Zoe? Thats awesome.

  6. Love those running shorts you have on! How cool to see a celeb!! I’m embarrassed that I don’t know who Rachel Zoe is, but I’m about to do some googling! 😉

  7. You are so tan! Jealous!

    Super cool that you saw Rachel Zoe. I totally watched her show. Are there not going to be more seasons of that? Bummer.

    • Haha just wait until I come back from North Carolina in a few weeks, that’s tan! I actually think I read the show is coming back this summer, it might be now?

  8. OK didn’t realize you are obsessed with RENT too…. we need to talk. I’ve seen it 7 times haha.

    • Oh, I own the movie, I’ve seen the play multiple times and I cry every time I watch the special features disk about the creator of it.

  9. I second amy: I’m jealous of your tan and your weekend. And your new plaid lululemon shorts. I’ve been eyeing those all spring.

    • Yeah I was too, and I told everyone to get them for me for my birthday, but then I asked if anyone was and my bf said no so I bought them for myself, haha.

  10. I’m so jealous you saw Rachel! I loved her show. Is it coming back?! Hmmmm.

    Also did you get that white top from Target? It looks like this one I have but mine isn’t as low cut (that’s not an insult, although on the computer it may come off wrong). I was wondering if you cut it or something? If so, brilliant idea. If you have no idea what I’m talking about please disregard this comment, ha.

    • I actually think the show is coming back this month, or came back last week, something like that. I’ll have to look into it! And the shirt is actually BCBG, I love it and have it in a blueish purple too!

  11. Good lord you look sooo pretty! Love the pics, looks like you had a blast! And a Rachel Zoe sighting is major!

    • Thank you, you’re too kind! I know I was so excited, I kept looking at all the celeb gossip pages yesterday to see if there were any pics of here there, haha!

  12. Sheesh, I need a weekend like that! Looks like non stop fun! How tall are you? You have some legs lady!! Bet your bf loves that!

  13. I am SO jealous of your NYC adventures! It looks like so so so much fun!! If I ever come back we should meet there and go for a run, I’ve always wanted to do that but it’s always raining 😦

  14. Where did you get that white dress shirt? I love it

  15. […] loved Make it or Break it.  Oh and The Rachel Zoe Project came back last night!  Ever since I saw her in Soho, I’ve been anticipating the return of the show.  Last nights episode was all about this […]
