new york city

i had such a great time in NY last week for our girls weekend. we celebrated kamilah's birthday and also did a temple session together, which was really one of the highlights for me. it was so cool to be in the temple with so many close friends.

fyi - she designed the dress she's wearing, sooo talented!

leah doing her thing! check out her beautiful shots HERE

we ate delicious food all weekend which is naturally one of the best parts of being in NY.
lunch at carmine's in times square - so yummy.

the trip would not have been complete without a little karaoke madness,
though i'll refrain from posting the video footage here

and of course, riding the subway all over. some of the ladies took some crazy pictures on the subway but unfortunately none of those ended up on my camera. we also had a few run ins with some subway crazies but our trip would not have been complete without them.

kamilah and kijuana - these sisters are so beautiful and seriously so much fun!
their mom and aunt were in town for the fetivities as well and i gotta say it's clear where they get their charm from!

we had good weather all weekend and sunday was particularly beautiful and warm. we took a long walk across the brooklyn bridge and got so caught up in taking thousands of pictures that kelly, cathy and i almost missed our flights home. i had the typical run-through-the-airport-with-a-huge-prego-belly-bouncing-around experience but happily made it home safe and sound.

the ladies on the brooklyn bridge patiently waiting while leah and i took many a photo!

it was such a fun weekend. i feel lucky that i get to do these little girls weekends usually a couple times a year. i'm guessing this will be my last one for a while as the new babe arrives though. thanks ladies for all the fun, the shopping, the cupcakes, the laughs and laughs and laughs!
i love you!
*and a special thanks to mehrsa and jared for generously letting me crash at l'hotel bybaran! you guys are the best and it was great staying up until the wee hours of morning chatting away!
