After stuffing our faces, we headed to the subway and on to Rockefeller Center to roam around. I hadn't been to New York City since I was a child so it was fun to check out all the sites.

Next on our eating adventures of NYC, we were off to dinner at Barbuto. We started off with a less than stellar round of sangria that was quickly forgotten after the amazing food. We started with a yummy, cheese plate. I then had the spicy sausage ragu with kale and goat cheese which was so good. However, the knock your socks off dish there was the potatoes with pecorino and rosemary. OH MY GOD, they were seriously like the most delicious, crispy, little things I've ever had. You can just ask my friends what a big deal I made about them and how I shoveled them in my mouth.
After dinner, we headed to Times Square to take in some more city sights. There's something so interesting and crazy about the hustle and bustle of that area.
Sunday morning, Lauryn and I were up and out by 7:30am to get in a nice, long walk along the water.

So after fueling up with brunch, we headed to the 9/11 Memorial which was pretty incredible to see. There were so many people there paying respects and remembering - such a moving experience for so many people. Following the Memorial, we headed over to the water to take another peak at Lady Liberty (Lauryn and I had also seen her on our morning walk).

So there you have it, a recap of my weekend. It was full of fun, food, and awesome friends. Who could ask for anything more?
