NYC Day 2

For those of you who are new around here, I went on a trip to New York in December with two of my sisters and one of my best friends. We were there for a long weekend during the most magical time of year.You can find the recap from Day One HERE. Now let's jump in to Day Two!We woke up pretty early on Saturday morning to make it to our breakfast reservation at Sarah Beth's. We visited the central park south location because we planned to spend the morning wandering around Central Park. I'd highly recommend making a reservation before you go. They get really busy. The fat and fluffy french toast is literally to DIE for. Guaranteed to make you feel fat and fluffy as soon as you finish. I'd recommend splitting since the portions are huge. My sister, Anna, ordered the green and white scrambled eggs so we had something savory (and somewhat healthy) to go with our fat and fluffy french toast. After breakfast, we walked thru The Plaza Hotel (since it's right next door!) and then made our way into Central Park. Walking thru the park was one of my favorite parts of our trip. There are so many iconic views but it's also just such a beautiful space. I'd recommend visiting Bethesda Fountain area while you're in Central Park. It's stunning! If you visit during warmer months, you could also take a boat ride while you're there. We took a car back to The Palace to change clothes and get ready for lunch.Funny side story: This particular morning, my sister let me borrow a beautiful Italian coin necklace that was given to her by grandfather after my grandmother had passed away. At some point when I was getting our of the car to go into the hotel, the chain broke and the coin fell onto the seat of the car. When we got up to the hotel room and I took off my coat, the chain fell off but the coin was nowhere to be seen. I FREAKED. OUT. We looked everywhere for it and Mary Margaret said she thought she saw a coin on the seat when we got out of the car. After a very lengthy and difficult process of tracking down our Uber driver (he spoke hardly a word of english), we were finally able to get the coin back by midnight that night. Talk about a heart attack!After we changed clothes, we got a quick burger and fries at Shake Shack and then walked over to The Met. We passed some beautiful brown stones on the way there. It's amazing what you just stumble upon in this city.The Met was absolutely beautiful! We decided to purchase The City Pass to save a bit of money on some of the sight seeing we wanted to do. It was well worth it.Once we were done at the museum, we headed back to get ready for dinner. We made a quick stop at Laduree for some macaroons and holy moly y'all. These are to the most delicious things I've ever put in my mouth! Not only is the little store front like stepping back in time to Paris in another century, but these little cookies are heavenly. You must get you some while you're here.On our second night we ate at Butter in Midtown. Split an entree to save room for dessert. They have a pastry chef on staff and the man knows how to make a dessert. We split the crispy chicken with the sauteed black kale and for dessert we had the raspberry beignets with vanilla dipping sauce. Y'all. My mouth is watering just thinking about how amazing it was!After dinner we walked back to our hotel to change into warmer clothes so we could go gawk at the tree and watch the light show in front of Saks a few more times.We got in bed a little on the earlier side that night since we were all worn out. Plus we knew we had a long day of seeing all the things the next day!Here are a few links of what I wore on Day Two![showshopthepostwidget id="2320007"]Day Three includes our crazy experience having tea at The Plaza, as well as our time spent in DUMBO and what we did our last night!Stay tuned!
