Priscilla...Queen of NYC

Hey there!  Happy President's Day (boy do I love working for a company that goes by Federal Holidays!)  I sure am glad I had off today though, I was exhausted from our weekend away in New York!  On Friday, after another busy week, Seth and I (along with a few friends) headed off to NYC to have some fun and unwind from all the craziness that is law school :)  We didn't get in until pretty late on Friday, but late is relative I guess, because midnight in Times Square is like noon in D.C. - packed and as busy as can be!  After a walk around the city, some pizza and such, we headed back to the hotel to rest up for the weekend!

Saturday we got up and had some breakfast/lunch to give us some fuel for a busy day of touring the city.  One of our friends, Daniel, had never been to New York before...which of course meant we played tour guide and showed him all the must-see spots :)  Central Park, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, etc... there wasn't a spot we didn't cover...and our feet told us so after the day was done...but not to worry, our big Italian dinner (and the wine) gave us enough courage/energy to pull ourselves together for a night of dancing and fun!  And to top it all off, some of our favorite New Yorker friends met us to make the night even better!

 These street performers were pretty funny!

The size of this dinner was ABSURD...but delish!

 After a fun Saturday night, we got up on Sunday morning, ate at our favorite Irish Pub, and headed off to see "Priscilla: Queen of the Dessert."  For those who aren't familiar, the musical was directed by Better Middler and is about a group of three drag queens who are traveling across the Australian desert in a motorhome in search of one of their sons/ex-wives...it's hilarious and a must see for those who like the theater!  Man, do I wish D.C. had theater like NYC!

Well, that's about all she wrote for this weekend!  We are home safe and sound, and trying to get ahead and ready for another fun weekend...as Seth's brother Andrew comes to visit!  But until then, much love and happiness to you all :)

Hands down you guys are the BEST tour guides ever! You're friends are lucky. Can't wait til' I get to go on the 'NYC Tour' with you guys.

Can't wait to hear about Andrew's visit.
