So, Meeker and his family and I went to New York City for his cousin’s wedding. I feel so lucky to have a family of in-laws that included me on a fun trip like this. Besides celebrating the marriage…
The happy couple – Sharon and Kyle – congratulations!

…we ate a lot of good, good food (and not just pizza and bagels, I promise). Think swanky Italian restaurants, steakhouses, and yummy brunch menus.
Saw the city on foot…
New York Stock Exchange
Trinity Church Graveyard
The tree at Rockefeller
Bought Meeker the first scarf he has ever owned…
‘I’m wearing a scarf’ face
Found this Christmas tree ornament (!!)
Bought it even though we don’t have a Christmas tree. (How could I not?!)
And one of the major highlights of the trip was meeting Caitlyn from Cait’s Plate!!
Remember her??! I was obsessed with her and her blog (which is no longer in existence) – and we have kept in touch over the past year. She and her boyfriend (whose name also happens to be Mike) and Meeker (my Mike) and I sat talked for over an hour like old friends. It was like we had known each other forever – we are basically the same person – and I gushed about how much I loved them both for the rest of the trip.
We went to Le Pain Quotidien, where I got a pumpkin muffin (delicious) and decaf coffee.
Like I said, I feel so blessed to have been included on this little vacation, and enjoyed every second of it. It is probably the last trip Meeker and I will take before Baby Cakes arrives, so I’m happy to have had the time! Plus, I’m just head over heels in love with New York City.
Have you ever been to NYC? Is city living for you or not?
