{life} happy 2012 - NYC recap

Hi friends! I hope that y'all had a wonderful new year's celebration! I celebrated in NYC with my wonderful boyfriend. My trip to NY was wonderful. I exchanged presents with Seth, went to lots of cute local restaurants in the Murray Hill area (see bottom of post for links to restaurants we went to!), went out with our friends, and caught up with a sorority sister who lives in NYC.

Picture heavy post once again. Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my last post!
I feel like I say this all the time but I'm trying to be a better blogger. 
Starting a new semester is always so hectic!

My second night in town was just in time for the Champs Bowl - aka the Notre Dame vs. FSU game.
Boyfriend went to ND, I go to FSU. It was quiiiite interesting. 
Needless to say... the best team won. ;)

First night out!

My sorority sisters were visiting NYC too! We met up with them a block from where Seth used to live.

Boys being boys....

We went to a bar called Kiss & Fly for NYE with a bunch of his college friends. First, we went to one of his friend's brother's ballller apartment in SOHO. Um. If I ever have to live in a big city I WILL have an apartment just like it. It is happening. It was huge! Something you would see on Sex & The City (Big/Carrie style.)

NYE! I don't really like this picture.... but you can see the dress!
Sidenote: Having only boys to take pics for NYE is so not ideal.
In the most baller apartment everrrr.
Right before midnight!
YAY 2012!

Restaurants visited while in NY - not as many this time. We were trying to save money! lol
*The Three Hens - We went for brunch. It was delicious! They serve water in a mason jar - 'nuff said.
*Brother Jimmy's - We ate a late lunch here after running errands all day. Service was a bit slow but food was pretty good! Not exactly comparable to true Southern food, obviously, but it was a good effort for the city!

I had a wonderful time. I can't wait to catch up with your blogs and see how your holiday seasons went!

PS. Watching the National Championship right now - who are you rooting for??

xo, Jen
