Lansfords Take NYC

So here's how it happens. My sister in law gets awarded a fancy Gracie award for Best Sports Anchor of the year, her school decides to fly her to NYC to receive the award in person and the rest of us Lansford ladies get lucky enough to tag along for an extended girls weekend. Recipe for perfection I say!

We took on the Big Apple for five days so instead of boring you with the details of our daily schedule, the highlights by category are below.

That being said, nothing pictured below will top exploring the outskirts of Times Square four nights in a row to hunt down the Jamaican men selling questionable purses, watches and sunglasses! No pictures cause we clearly didn't want to get caught or impaled.  

Touristy Spots

9/11 Memorial

Brooklyn Bridge against cityscape

"Dog Protection" in the subway

Cityscape on Ferry Ride to Lady Liberty

Last night hurrah at Newsies
Bike Ride in Central Park
Group Shot in front of Ellington Circle

Singlehandly the most overwhelmingly shopping experience of my life. That is a lot of store...
Tasty Bites
Usually while in New York, I love to shop. Given my growing bump, that was a no-go this time around. I made up for it by researching yummy bites and iconic food spots for us instead. Pretty much every stop was a huge success.

Sunday brunch at Sarahbeths

Getting excited for our "Fat and Fluffy" french toast and pancakes.
My Lemon Ricotta pancakes and as you can see from my bacon, their "sides" are quite generous.

Sampling Hersheys products in Time Square

Quick trip to Harlem for some chickin and waffles

Sylvia's handsqueezed lemonade


Shake Shack (of course)

Dragon Fruit on Canal Street while bartering for questionable merchandise.

Juniors Chicken Parm

Juniors Devil's Food Cheesecake
Visiting Buddy's

Black and White cookie, brownie, lobster tail, cannoli, red velvet cupcake- All so good!

We planned to enjoy these after an easy dinner of Grey Papaya hotdogs but the NYC heat got to them for sure.
No muss, no fuss. Just yummy thin crust pizza at Grimaldis in Brooklyn.
