New York {Day 2 & 3}

The next day we got a late start but were ready to meet some more friends in Chelsea. We started out by walking around theChelsea Market and finding a place to nosh. Everyone wanted to go to a diner but Chris and I were in the mood for something a bit lighter. So we went to LePain Quotidien to share a bread basket and a ham and gruyere sandwich.
By the time we were done our other friends were in Chelsea and we all walked over to the construction of the World Trade Centers and the Memorial. Unfortunately we didn't have the forethought to book tickets and didn't get to go and see it. By the time we were ready for the next site it was time for us to go home and get ready for the party! So we primped and changed and scuttled over to DinoBarbeque. It was so lovely! They decorated it so it was like we were back in North Carolina and they both looked great. Laura wore a beautiful white strapless dress with a sweetheart neck, a flowy bottom, just above knee length and a sparkly belt. There were wonderful toasts and delicious food. We had so much fun. And it was relaxing but Chris and I were still pretty tired so instead of going to the after party we went home to get some sleep.

Everyone else was leaving the next day so they packed and then we all went to brunch with the rest of the wedding party. After brunch we went to the Bronx Zoo! It was so nice! The weather was just perfect and we saw a ton of animals. Since it was Sunday it closed a little early and Chris and I went back to Harlem to get some sleep before his interview and my day of work. We ordered a pizza for the two of us and had a nice night in until...Chris realized he was supposed to be at his social! Whoops!
Monday we took the same train in opposite directions, me to Rockefeller Center and Chris to the Bronx. It was so cool to be in the NY office! Walking around our office was probably the most tourist-y thing that I did while I was there! It was so fun, and everyone was really sweet. Chris came to meet me so we could wade our way to the bus together! It started down poring as we were walking! But we made it without being totally drenched. Then home we went! It was so nice to sleep in our own bed, and wash our faces in a sink that was normal size and not fight 4 other people for it! All in all a great trip and I'm ready to go back! Have you guys ever been to NY? Do you live there? (jeal) Do you have a favorite memory of NY?
