Engagement Trumps Birthdays

The first 24 hours in NYC were epic. It started out at dinner with Jon to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary and ended with a Saturday brunch with the besties celebrating our engagement.

Rewind to the beginning…we got into NY around 4pm.  We were staying at a hotel because Jon’s parents were “painting” the apt (which turns out wasn’t true).  We got to the hotel and I immediately ran off to get a mani/pedi because I was in desperate need of one (anyone that lives in London understands). I knew I had to be ready early but  I thought I had enough time to get both a manicure and pedicure but I was wrong.  I wound up getting a pedicure and half a manicure (no polish).  I headed back to the hotel to shower and get for the dinner.

We met Jon’s sister, Erika, at the restaurant for some drinks before dinner.  We caught up, laughed and everything seemed totally normal.  Jon and I went upstairs for dinner to enjoy delicious sushi.  He decided he wanted to give me my birthday present after dinner and I wasn’t going to say no so we went back to the hotel.

I walked into the room and there were rose petals, flowers, presents, candy, champagne, and some other things all over the room!  I was in shock! I turned around and Jon was down on one knee.

After spending time together we headed down to the lobby where I was surprised to see my family and his family. We celebrated with toasts and drinks and then headed to a bar where I was surprised again by all my friends.

After a crazy night out which ended with dancing to a cover band we woke up to meet the girls for bunch at barmarche which I highly suggest you visit if you are in NY.

I still can’t stop smiling and can’t believe I’m engaged!

I keep forgetting that my birthday was on Saturday too.  I don’t really care though because the engagement definitely trumps the birthday.

Let the wedding planning begin!

My First Trip Back To NY (HOME)!

We went back to NY for a friends wedding and it was a perfect weekend and perfect timing.  It was just about 2 months since I’d been back so this trip was more than necessary.  It was the most tiring weekend ever because we were always on the go but worth every second.

Lots of friends, family and errands packed into 3 days. The wedding was BEAUTIFUL and we danced, drank, and laughed until 3am!

Jen & Shanna met me out after the rehearsal dinner on Friday!

And here are a couple from the wedding. Ziff you requested to be on the blog about 5839205839206034 times Saturday night so here you go.

Look at the cake!!!

Mr. & Mrs. =)

 

Before.

Looked like they really enjoyed that shot.

Marissa, Rachel & me

And last but not least….The food was really good.

It felt great to be home.  It actually felt like I never left.  Everything picked up right where we left it.  I dragged Shanna around the city on Friday running errands like I always did when we lived together. We ate lunch at our favorite “fast food” restaurant, Nanoosh, where we devoured our Lebane wraps in 2 minutes.  We talked while we literally walked downtown then uptown then back across town.

Can’t wait for my next trip to NY in December!

**If anyone doesn’t want a photo of them up here let me know and I’ll take it down.
