Earlier this month I spent a fabulous weekend with friends in New York City.
Well, to be exact, we stayed in Hoboken, New Jersey - and took the ferry over to the city each day.
The views from our apartment in Hoboken were amazing.
I took this pic from the ferry dock - waiting to head into the city on Friday morning. Woo hoo!
I grew up north of the city, but it was honestly the first time I've ever spent a weekend there just strolling around - shopping and eating. It was wonderful. We spent time in a ton of fabulous stores - Fishs Eddy (I really did control myself and did not buy much - only a couple of dishtowels) and ABC Home - floors and floors of deliciousness. I kept myself in check here as well - only buying a necklace that was on sale! Yay me.
I did hit one yarn store - String, but did not buy a thing. (Although they did have a beautiful selection.) I wanted to visit the Lion Brand Studio Store, but we ran out of time. (They close at 5 and we did not get out of ABC Home til... way after that.) Next time!
On Saturday morning we went to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, but it was raining and there were really not many vendors there. I was a little disappointed. By the afternoon it had cleared up though and we spent most of the day shopping in SoHo, where I bought a cute little bracelet.
One of my favorite buildings - the Flatiron Building. (You can see what a gorgeous day it was!)
Hoboken is really a lovely place as well. Lots of adorable little shops and restaurants and old buildings.
Look at that sky! Gorgeous. ♥
