hello brooklyn

Love this view!

We strolled all over Brooklyn Heights before brunch! :)

Every where there were blooms!  I can't wait for it to happen in USNY!

The Brooklyn Bridge! :)

Glass house.

Rachel & Jared - our amaze friends and great hosts!

John and I!  

Smorgasburg - food tents everywhere - we'll have to go there next time!

Jared loves following the blog...and photo bombing...he SO wants to be in it!

Don't mind my brunch belly!

I'm finally getting up a post about the great long weekend we had in Brooklyn and LI last weekend!  We had a great Texas dinner Friday night with a small group of friends at Hill Country.  It was super yummy so I got my beef brisket fill - I just wish they had the picnic tables outside as it was so warm and nice to be under the twinkling lights!

Saturday Rach and I juiced it up before our class at her gym which kicked our butts and I was glad it was over.  It was similar to a barre class that I've taken in Saratoga, but just different methods of small movements.  While we were there, the guys were played some hoops.  John hurt his ankle and both of them got sunburned - more sunburned then our friend who is very fair skinned!  Rachel and I hit up Sephora & Nordstrom Rack - I can't wait until Albany gets a Nordstrom (anything!).  That means I'll actually have to drive to Albany.  We hurried back to meet friends for dinner and drinks at Houston Hall - it totally took me back to our bachelorette trip to Austin.  It was such a great weekend last year and Houston Hall definitely gave us that Texas vibe!  We made our way back to some old stomping grounds - Thunder Jacksons (I helped crush a boot), Coyote Ugly (face palm - and way different now/ still creepy) and then headed back to BK.  

Sunday we enjoyed a wonderful brunch in Brooklyn Heights and enjoyed walking around the waterfront.  It was a little chillier that day, especially near the water, but the sun was still out and shining so that helped.  They've really built up the waterfront area and it was great to see all the activities; the market, to the outside sports complex and just nature coming alive!  We had to cut our Sunday short in BK as we were heading out to LI for an engagement party for Nick and Valerie.  Our friend Jamaal came down from Saratoga as well so that was a good time at a local Italian Restaurant.  We wrapped up the day at Nick's parent's house which was beautiful.  We all did have to get up early to head back to Saratoga for work on Monday.  It was definitely a struggle!  I can't wait to go back to Brooklyn and LI to explore some more in the future, however I'm really looking forward to a low key weekend in Saratoga! :)
