NJ Trip Part 3-finale

NYC has always had my heart. Everytime I'm there my serotonin levels get a major boost, its like the city's energy recharges my batteries. To get an additional boost we hit Starbucks, I figured since I was on vacation I could put a moratorium on my Frappacino hiatus. There we found Wooly Bear, our trip mascot, he was meant to come home with me.

We bought ticket for a 3pm show so we had some time to kill which we used to explore Knitty City.

What a fabulous store! The staff was eager to help me find something special that was made locally. I decided on this scrumptious silk, I just adore the colors.

We strolled through Central Park before heading to the theater. The park was lovely and many tees and flowers were in bloom.

Stunning views abound.

We stopped to see the memorial for John Lennon at Strawberry Fields in the park.

We attended the play Impressionism which was starring Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons, one of my favorite actors. We were in the third row and it was absolutely amazing to be so close to such talent. The play was delightful and even coaxed a tear or two from my eyes in the end.

We finished our evening in Little Italy and had a fabulous dinner at Lunella Ristorante. I had an incredible Osso Buco with risotto, mmmm I can't sing high enough praises.

We then headed back to Penn station and took the train back to Morristown. The next day the weather was rainy so we hit Short Hills mall where I fell in love with a stunning orange Fendi purse. I did manage to resist and made it home with some money still in my wallet, not much but at least something. We ended up spending 6+ hours waiting at the airport and then had the long flight. By the time we arrived home at midnight I was happy to be back in familiar surroundings and to sleep next to my dh once again. We crammed quite a bit into four days and it truly was a delight to go back. Next time I won't wait so long.
