NYC: Thurs: last minute tourist

The original plan for the day was for Dad to skip out on the morning portion of his conference and go on the Statten Island ferry with us. So we got up and got dressed in time to meet him after an early morning meeting. We were ready to go when he called and said he couldn’t swing it and he needed to so some things at the conference. Bummer.

So we reevaluated and decided we weren’t in the mood to site-see, we were in the mood to shop. So we wondered uptown getting postcards, last minute gifts and the trims we regretted not buying the first time in the Garment District. We ended at the M&M store and decided to have a nice girly lunch at the Olive Garden in Times Square. Lame to go to a restaurant we have at home I know but it was the cutest OG I’d ever been in, we had a window seat on Broadway and the soup and salad really hit the spot!

After that we wondered back down to our hotel, shopping and taking last minute pics along the way. We got a little down-time (ie early packing) then freshened up and went back up to Times Square to meet Dad, Jim & Lori for dinner.

I may not have met all of my goals while we were there but I did were a pair of fabulously impractical shoes to dinner. Not my over-the-top-impractical sandals because it was cold but fun heels non-the-less. I also wore a flower in my hair. *wink* We went to W46th and ate Brazilian in an old brown stone off of Broadway. The food was excellent and the company even better!

Afterwards we went back our favorite Marriot bar overlooking the Square where we had more fun, drinks and dessert. It was raining by this time so we watched it pour on the people below. We finally called it a night, said our goodbyes and subway-ed back to our hotel and bed.

Thanks! They are actually pretty comfy as they are my MK event shoes. I did change into the little red flats I had in my purse on the way home though... *wink*

I've been reading but not doing much commenting, but I had to say I love your stylishly chic outfit in that first pic!! I think you're definitely a girl after my own heart. ;-D Black, with denim and splashes of red is a favourite combo of mine, and I love your shoes! ;-D
