if you follow me on instagram you would have seen my little post about me visiting the big apple next month. y'all have no idea how badly i've been wanting to go since the first time i went two summers ago! i fell in love with the city then and there and i'm so excited that orly is going with me this time around because eventually at some point in my life, i would just love to live there! i see it and i really hope he loves it just as much as i do. i kind of know he'll enjoy his time, but don't think he's up for moving there, he's more worried about our dogs not having a backyard and all that.. but like i've told him before, new york is your backyard. so, fingers crossed!
anyway, the last time i went was with my family. there was eleven of us. we were in new york for about four days but with such a big group it was hard to do everything in such a short time! of course, i want to visit the statue of liberty again, and the empire state building and rockefeller center. but i also want to do the things i didn't get to do the last time i was there. like go to brooklyn, or go to a museum, or maybe a show! i don't know i kind of want to do a mix of things. i want to do all the touristy stuff within the first day or two but i also want to do some local things, and i made it a point to be there on the weekend, because i definitely want to go to new york's flea markets. there are so many but i really want to find some vintage treasures. you never know what you'll find, so i'm excited!
the things i remember the most of my trip were the amazing buildings, the rain and the walking.. oh the walking! and lets not forget those blisters! i took the wrong shoes last time but i am definitely not making the same mistake this time around!! i'm ready for this! i was mentioning to orly how badly we all had it, there was a point where i had to stop walking for awhile and switch shoes with my sister and that still didn't help. i remember being seated to eat at rockefeller center and ordering way too many margaritas so i wouldn't feel the pain! worked like a charm!
well, below are a few throwback pictures of my trip there. sorry, not all are too great, they were all taken with my iphone. i'm so happy my brother was nice enough to buy me a new camera because i will definitely put it to good use on my trip!
hope y'all have an amazing thursday and enjoyed my throwback pictures! i can't wait for this trip! i am way too excited, already planning my outfits and all :p
