This past Saturday, I gave myself a day off.
It was my first day off since Allison was born on December 28.
Leaving home was not as hard as it could have been; I departed before 6 am. The children were still asleep.
I was expecting to ride to New York with my dear friend, Shannon, but a sick child prevented her from coming.
We are moms before we are mom bloggers, after all.
I had breakfast with Delilah, who is lovely and taught me about QR codes.
I had never been to New York City before. Not ever. I assumed I’d ride along and gawk at the sights on the way into the city.
Except no one else wanted to drive.
So I did.
They may not have been so sure, especially after this –
But we made it there and back in one piece.
In fact, the only difference between New York City driving and driving in any other city? There are more yellow taxi cabs.
We waited in line for Getting Gorgeous.
I thought it would be a day of pampering. Instead, it was a day of learning and of friendship.
I did have some gorgeous makeup, thanks to Leora, but even makeup was secondary to laughter and conversation.
After the event, Joey, Jessica, and I walked. We talked. We shopped. We met up with Melanie and ate cold tofu and sauteed vegetables at a restaurant.
When in Rome, right? If New Yorkers eat their sauteed vegetables and tofu on ice, then I will, too
Except, don’t ever order hibiscus iced tea. It is awful.
