Seize the Day

How was everyone's weekend?

Mine was pretty darn fantastic!  I spent Saturday in New York with one of my best friends from high school, as well as one of her sisters and he sister's friend.  We had tickets for Newsies, and as we were making our way toward the Nederlander one of my friends stopped short and gasped when she saw this: 

Also exciting: the Godiva store was to the right of Chop't.  We had truffles for dessert. :-)

I've only been to Chop't once before, when visiting that friend in D.C, but was amazing!  And my friend loves Chop't so much she would probably benefit from some sort of 12-step program, so we were both incredibly excited to see that they were in New York, too. 

My salad consisted of baby spinach, romaine lettuce, crumbled egg, carrots, broccoli, sunflower seeds, and smoky bacon ranch dressing.  SO good.

Then it was off to the Nederlander, where we waited in a line that wrapped around the block.  It was ridiculous.


I hadn't seen the movie in awhile, possibly since high school.  Which is probably kind of good, because they did make some completely arbitrary changes that might have bothered me more if I'd seen it more recently.  But changes or not, it was an incredible performance, and so much fun!!  I haven't seen any other shows that are nominated, so my opinion may not count for much here, but I will still be extremely surprised if it doesn't win the Tony for best choreography. 

Covert picture in the theater before the performance started.  I'm a rebel!

 Next we headed down to Veselka for dinner:

7 plates for 4 people.  But we're not gluttons. :-P
Everything was amazing.  That picture above?  It's not even everything we ordered.  There were no leftovers, unless you count the 3 quarts of borscht my friend ordered to go. ;-)


  1. wow you gals really know how to chow down! My kind of ladies!

  2. Wow...your weekend sounds super fun and that salad - yum! Have a great Wednesday, sweetie.

  3. Oh wow sounds like you had an amazing weekend and that salad looks delicious!!

  4. It's great that you can just pop over to New York whenever you want and do awesome stuff! :) Sounds like a day full of adventures!

  5. Sounds like a fantastic time! All the food looks yummers!

  6. Why go to Godiva, when I'm pretty sure there's a Leonidas in NYC? Seriously good Belgian chocolate (and I've been to Belgium. They're actually there, too, haha).
