A New York Hour

Sometimes we go out for lunch.  We work in the Upper West Side so food options are aplenty but today we chose to be tourists.  I don’t know how the idea came about (ok, it was me, I brought it up) but we decided to go to Gray’s Papaya Hot Dogs.  Their “recession special” is only $5 and it includes two hot dogs and a drink. How fancy are we? πŸ˜‰

   
    
    
 But really, my favorite part is just walking around the upper west side.  It’s so nice and calm and much more family-oriented than other parts of the city.  A couple of days ago, I hung out with my friend, Rick, and we walked past the Museum of Natural History and I was reminded that I definitely need to take a trip there soon.  I think one of the best parts of living in New York is that you can live here your whole life but there’s always something new to discover.

Lake George

Yay, first post of this here blog!  It’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally made it.   I’m so excited for this little corner of the Internet.  I want it to be a place where I can post my fondest of memories.  With Summer finally coming to an end, I’ve always considered Fall an unofficial start to a new year.  And I would be lying if I didn’t say that the best times I’ve experienced in New York didn’t begin in the fall.  I can’t wait to share so many more fun times to come.

The first great memory I wanted to share for this post is our recent trip to Lake George.  Having awesome friends who are also coworkers, it’s hard to get the same time off so we took advantage this past weekend and went camping upstate.  I’ve only known Tatiana and her boyfriend, Todd, for a short time (1 year!) but they’ve already become awesome adventure buddies!

  

Packed Car!
  
  Of course, one of the reasons this campsite happens to be a favorite of mine (besides the beautiful view of the lake) is because it’s animal friendly.  Our dog, Pierrot, loves the outdoors, he even recently survived an 8-mile hike with plenty of energy leftover.  He’s so tiny and pocket sized, I love taking him with us everywhere!

We were tipped off to a secluded spot by our camping neighbors, only a short trek away.
