so we had a blast in ny and who wouldn't, it is ny! we flew in mid afternoon and made our way from jfk to brooklyn where we were staying. the lady we were staying with wasn't home yet so we headed to a bar for happy hour. we called it an early night as we were pooped from the flight and having to get up so early.
friday the mister and i started the day off with breakfast and walked around the neighborhood of greenpoint and did some shopping at some thrift stores. we spotted this citroen broom wagon which is a french truck that was used in european bike races to pick up the riders that couldn't go any further. it is so cute and we were both surprised as the stickers on the back were from a local surf shop in sf, so they must have been from the bay area...way to represent!

|we made friends with this kitty named fatso at a coffee shop...you can a glimpse of my new jeans and yellow cardigan!|
at the salvation army i scored a cute bright yellow cardigan that i have been trying to find and some killer high waisted silvertab jeans...anyone remember those from the 90's? so awesome and they fit like a glove! they looked so good with what i was wearing that i kept the jeans on ;D i never really do that...i am the type that likes to treasure my new finds and wait for that special day to bust them out but i was feeling crazy so i threw those high waisted babies on!
we then hopped over to a bar and stayed there for the majority of the night....i made my way home at around 1:30 and didn't make it back to brooklyn until almost 4AM!!!!!!!!! the subway system there is crazy, great but so confusing especially at night when trains don't run as often and you have no idea where you are or what direction to go...thankfully people there are really nice and really helpful!
