4th & Swift: ladies’ night dinner

Last night, Amanda, Kacey, and I went to 4th & Swift for a ladies’ night dinner. The three of us wanted to go there for awhile, but the menu is a bit pricey. Luckily, it’s Midtown Restaurant Week, so we were able to take advantage of their cheaper prixe fixe menu.

We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to share.

Kacey and I ordered the same choices, while Amanda got the melon salad, trout, and blueberry pie. The three of us were full and happy after dinner, drinks, and catching up. Cheers to ladies’ night!

New York trip: Friday

Last weekend, I went to New York with my boyfriend. We had awesome adventures and I took a ton of photos, so I’m going to make three posts about the trip (one per day we were in New York). I’ve also done this because I wanted to schedule some posts while I’ll be on the dreaded family vacation of doom at Disney World until Saturday. -_-

Ceddy and I arrived at LaGuardia on Friday morning around 9AM. We took the MTA bus into the city, then took the subway uptown.

First, we stopped at the Nespresso café on 5th Avenue. We sampled the caramel espresso, while Ceddy shopped for other flavors.

Five words

In five words,
you replace today’s exhaustion
with elation.
Standing behind me,
you rest your chin on my shoulder,
hugging me closer.
“Welcome to our new home.”
