I meant to stay in NYC over the weekend once I returned from Paris but my allergies dissipated that desire pretty quickly. But I knew I was returning the next weekend as Nick and Whitney were in town from Singapore and it had been a year since I last saw them.
I love these two a great deal and I'm excited to meet their new baby daughter when they return to the States someday. Moving to DC made me realize that seeing friends if only for a few hours is worth the time and money when they aren't that far away. And this was a quick trip. I came up Saturday morning and left Monday afternoon. I wanted to see everyone and eat everything.
The traveling was during the World Cup and thank goodness for Twitter to keep me posted on the games. It was a good year for games. No one was really sure who would take the championship and I liked that.
I arrived in New Jersey where Nick picked me up for a BBQ with Whit's family. There were a couple of us including Trish who traveled to the suburbs to see them.
I really didn't take too many photos except of this little boy who loved drawing with crayons on my legs. I wished the crayon markings had actually transferred.
Nick and Whitney and a really good blueberry pie we ate that night. None of us were hungry for it but we had to order it.
