Nothing but Nelson in NYC

Brad and I have had the pleasure of spending the past few days in New York City. Brad was there for a work event, and I was just along for the ride. We had a blast, seeing some sights of the city and spending some time with his friends and co-workers. Brad got to NYC on Wednesday, and I joined him late Thursday afternoon, in time for the cocktail party.

On Friday (while Brad was in meetings all day), some of the other spouses and I (and Luke, too!) had a chance to explore the city. After a quick breakfast, we headed Rockefeller Center before going to the NBC Studios for a tour.

We were not permitted to take photos during the tour, but we saw the studios where they film the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, Saturday Night Live, and the Today Show. After the tour, we made a quick stop at this lovely little shop...

Where we enjoyed these treats...

                         This was mine--chocolate chocolate!                         Red Velvet

Nate--thanks for the recommendation! (He suggested we check out the bakery)

Carley (and Luke)


We headed back to the hotel to get ready for the evening festivities. I may or may not have talked Brad into visiting the Shake Shack with me. Delicious!

We also checked out Times Square so I could play tourist with my new camera

That's for you, mom!

Friday night was a fabulous dinner dance. Brad's coworkers are a LOT of fun to be around!

After exploring the city a bit on my own on Saturday morning, we met up with Matt and Shannon to explore Eataly and Central Park.
