Good morning, everyone! I just had a great workout at the gym and am about to go to Starbucks for breakfast (we are completely out of food). I ran for 25 minutes this morning before doing a Nike Training Club 15 minute abs workout. Feels good to be back at my gym!
Take a look at the second part of my NYC recap!
NYC Recap Part Two
Our third day in NYC was a long one, but fun! We started out the morning by grabbing coffee and heading back down to Times Square to do some more shopping. I got some cute stuff from H&M (blazers for $7!!) and then we took a break for pizza.
As you all know, I love pizza. Like, really really love it. It’s almost embarrassing how much I want pizza. So of course I had to get pizza in NYC. We were pressed for time so we popped into a tiny little pizza shop near the theaters and grabbed some slices to eat outside. I had a slice of their white pizza that was so perfect!
After shopping it was time to see our second show. We saw Romeo and Juliet, which was starring Orlando Bloom as Romeo. It was amazing! Even though I’m pretty sure we all know the story (and how it ends), they did a great job at making it seem new and interesting and I was never bored. Orlando Bloom was also great in the part and we could literally hear the teenage girls swooning.
We had really close seats, which made it even better. At the end of the show they auctioned off Orlando’s shirt for charity and 2 different women paid $1500 each! It took forever to get out of the area because of the crowds waiting by the stage door. I’m pretty sure he had better sense than to go out that way, but it was funny to see anyway.
After the bus took us back to our hotel, I quickly changed and headed out to meet up with one of my college friends, Morgan, for an early dinner.
We met up at a Thai place called Lime Leaf and I had basil Pad Thai for dinner. Looks boring, tasted delicious!
After dinner, my cousin, sister and I went to Hell’s Kitchen to a wine bar. I had a glass of cabernet that was delicious and we ordered a couple small plates to share.
After a few bars and staying up waaay too late, it was time for bed! Considering I can count on one hand the number of times I stay up past midnight in a 6-month span, I did not end up going for a run Sunday morning like I’d planned.
Sunday we grabbed breakfast at a diner next door, then got on the bus to head home. Goodbye, NYC. See you next time!
Have you ever met anyone famous?
If you’ve been to NYC, did you see any Broadway shows?
