This was the first weekend I can remember where I had no plans. Literally ZERO plans! No coffees, no brunches, no phone calls. Nowhere I had to be or go or get dressed up for or prepared for. Nada. Not even on Friday night. What a treat. And the best part about the summer in the city? Everyone on the Upper East Side leaves for the Hamptons so it’s extra quiet. It’s like a vacation in and of itself.
Garrett and I cooked dinner (aka he cooked dinner) and watched a documentary. When it was over, it was still pretty early so we went off to play tourists. I’ve never been to Serendipity 3 before and I guess I thought it was overrated and a tourist trap, but I was still willing to try. Who in their right mind would turn down any kind of chocolate?! We expected long lines because it was 10pm on a Friday, but we only had to wait 25 minutes! While we waited, we zipped across to Roosevelt Island on the tram– another first for me.
Verdict on the frozen hot chocolate? SO GOOD. I’m kind of mad I had it because I’ve been craving it ever since. I didn’t get the concept of how something could be frozen and hot… but it’s just like a hot chocolate flavored slushy. YUM. Serendipity 3 definitely a touristy spot, so the crowd is strange. If you’re into people watching though, it’s the best in town.
Teddy and I walked so much on Saturday. My legs are actually kind of sore… just from walking. I added it up and I think it was over seven miles that we logged between the morning and the night. Insane. We picked a new route in the morning and Teddy had so much fun running up and down grassy hills with some new puppy friends. Too cute!
The park was actually pretty surreal in the morning. So perfect, it felt like I was walking in a movie set! I mean… look at that lighting!
This is just a PSA… the avocado toast at Le Pain Quotidien is one of the best I’ve ever had. Delicious. And they have THE best lemonade in the world too. The perfect summer meal.
More walking on Saturday night. Again a gorgeous NYC scene.
And today was spent catching up and relaxing and all the puppy snuggles we could fit in!
Hope you had a great weekend! Anything fun?!
