Anyways, while there, we probably walked a marathon. We went EVERYWHERE and just enjoyed stumbling upon different shops and restaurants. It is my favorite way to travel! We both agree that Chelsea and Greenwich are our favorite parts of Manhattan. We joked that we were going to by a brownstone on 11th Street. aah dreams.
When I go to new places I am all about finding interesting places to eat so we had fun going to all sorts of places but our favorite was Pipa Tapas y Mas, a really cool spanish restaurant I fell in love with a couple of years ago. The atmosphere is really cool with old wooden tables and about a hundred chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Not to mention, the food is amazing.
As for shows we saw Spring Awakening (our favorite), 13, and Wicked. It was exciting to think about Matt one day being up on stage. It was also scary to be reminded, once again, of the number of people living in the city with the same goals as us. We constantly have to remind ourselves that if we follow the Lord's will we will always be in the right place. We also have to recognize that the Lord's plan for us might look nothing like we think. It brings such peace to know we are not in control...
Anyway, here are some pictures from the trip.
In the New York Public Library (which is gorgeous! if you go to New York, don't miss it)
All of us except Matt
We had 6 people in one hotel room to save some money. Therefore the boys all slept in one bed together. As you can see, it was pretty funny.

matt and I play a game we call 50 years where we say 50 years whenever we see a cute or funny old couple. This would be an example where someone would say "50 years"
