- New York always welcomes me with open arms. Last week- I spent Monday and Tuesday in the city. The experience is always fresh...always a new surprise. While the purpose of this last trip was primarily work, I got a chance to stop in a few of my favorite places which included Aero's Studios. Love it! As I slowly walked through the main level of the large space filled with beautiful things perfectly placed, I see Mr. Thomas O' Brien heading my direction. Actually, he was heading out of the door and I just happened to be blocking his route which gave me the perfect opportunity to give my 5 minute speech. Of course, I over-thought what I would say and what his reaction would be and we exchanged warm greetings. While I missed my opportunity to chat, it was great to have my second meeting with Mr. O' Brien (the first meeting was at a book signing in DC-we chatted for 5 minutes about blogging and my love of all things Thomas O' Brien). I am looking forward to our 3rd meeting!
- You cannot go to NYC and not experience the restaurant scene. I can now add two restaurants to my resume- Del Frisco and Chat & Chew (see pictures above). Del Frisco can be described as a high end steakhouse with prices that reach to the sky. I ordered the filet with a potato. The dressings for my potato were so plentiful that I could hardly fit them on the table. Steak was cooked to perfection. A+ for food and service. Chat & Chew serves comfort food in a trailer park chic atmosphere. Delicious. I ordered chicken wings, fries, mac & cheese. Although it wasn't our first choice (we all wanted to go to Cafeteria), it gets an A for food and service (no "+")
- During the long weekend with the fam (this was before my work trip to NY), mom and I did a little shopping on Sunday afternoon. I came across two little pieces of artwork that I knew I had to have. Mom agreed so she insisted treating me. I love their simplicity and their significance. A couple of years ago, we took spent two weeks in Paris and London as a family. Thanks mom!
I am off to a meeting with a client. Furniture was delivered earlier this week and now it is time for the finishing touches-decorating.
Enjoy your weekend.
