Tag Archives: New York

It’s been a while since I perused etsy, but every time I’m in the market for something unique, particularly for a wedding or for the home, it’s the first spot I hit. Nesta Home caught my eye quite a while back. I love the urban prints they put on canvases and pillows, but it was this new driftwood line that really caught my eye.




Of course, the city prints are still my absolute favorite.

I wish I had more rooms in my home. I’d love to do a whole room just of these city pieces.

We went off today white water rafting over in Eastern Washington and had an absolutely fabulous time, but all the sun and physical exertion has me beat. I have the feeling tomorrow is going to be another lazy Sunday… which are usually my favorite kind of days.

This past week I was in New York City for the first time in nearly ten years, and I’m feeling terribly romantic about the city again. Husband and I both had to be there for work, but we flew in a few days early to enjoy ourselves a little. And enjoy ourselves we did! Great eats, a great show, fabulous shopping and a whole lot of sunshine. We really lucked out – it was 70 and beautiful all weekend. The best thing? Newsies on Broadway. I’ve never been big on musicals, but the husband loves them, particularly Newsies. And a friend of his was in the show! We had amazing seats (Thank you Aaron!) The show was so much fun, and besides Aaron, there were three guys we recognized from So You Think You Can Dance. So much talent! And oy, the restaurants in NYC are unbelievable. So much good food. Here are a few pics from the weekend and a few places I’d highly recommend, which I found mostly based on recommendations from a few of my amazing friends.

Carnegie Deli and their fantastic pickles
Soup Dumplings at Joe’s Shanghai
Rosa Mexicano makes fresh guacamole at the table
Everything at Philippe, particularly the duck (oh the duck!)
Steak Frites de L’Entrecôte (just like Paris!)
PJ Clarke’s has great parmesan tots and bread pudding
Great Italian and great service at Osteria al Doge
Yaffa Cafe and their famous carrot dressing
Zio – we did drinks and appetizers, but I’d love to go back for dinner

So much good food! I can’t wait to go back and try more!
