Sometimes mom just needs a break and a little getaway...right? In the midst of a hectic schedule full of school, homework, sports, and a traveling husband, a getaway helps to restore the balance of the craziness, at least that is the hope. So, somehow I was amazingly able to coordinate with three other moms (our husbands are all friends from college) and meet up in New York City for a quick two night trip. I'm still in shock that something major didn't come up that prevented any of us from making the journey.
So, what exciting things did we manage to do in 2 short nights?
Of course we enjoyed the view of Times Square from our room at the Marriott Marquis.
Some fabulous burgers and drinks at Five Napkin Burger. It's located in the Hell's Kitchen area of New York City and highly recommended. If you are in the area and craving some delicious fare, this will not disappoint.
A pre theater meal at Bond 45. Honestly, you can not go wrong with this amazing Italian restaurant located just off of 45th and 7th Ave near Times Square. I think we are all still dreaming about the mouth watering open faced lasagna and homemade tiramisu.
A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder was a delightful Broadway show that provided some laughs and comedy along the way. One little warning: the theater is very small and seating a little crowded but still worth it to see this amazing show.
Of course a few toasts to enjoying a wonderful two nights away from our fabulous kids and our husbands that were able to manage and hold down the fort while we were away. It definitely was a much needed few days/nights of relaxation. Of course, the wonderful foggy weather at JFK airport extended my weekend one additional night...but I'm already asking....when can we go again?
