The Girl Guide in the city
We had a pretty low key and mostly unplanned weekend. It was nice to just hang around the house on Sunday and knock things off my to-do list. Luke and I made banana bread and it was so delicious! I used this recipe and supplemented the flour for a GF option, used coconut sugar, and replaced the sour cream with Laava dairy-free yogurt. I crossed my fingers that it wouldn’t taste horrible and it worked! It made for a yummy dessert after our Sunday night dinner at my parent’s house.
My best friend recently moved to Nashville (you might remember my road trip with her this summer!?) and she was back in NYC for the weekend. Earlier in the week I made plans to take one of the boys in with me for an early Saturday dinner. That morning everyone woke up a little sniffly and with the rain I ended up making a game time decision to go solo. It ended up being an awesome night and I was actually so thankful to have some one-on-one time with my friend sans kids. We realized it had been seven years since we went out alone together in the city.
I squeezed in a little shopping right before dinner. First stop was one of my favorite boutiques in SoHo. Its a must-visit if you’re ever in the city. I fell in love with everything…these pants and this sweater. After that I visited one of my new favorite shops for closet staples in search for a bootie. I ended up buying these which are amazing. They’re made in Italy and the leather is so soft. I highly recommend all of their shoes.
For dinner we went to little prince and it was delicious. The restaurant was small and cozy and exactly what we were looking for! Order the quinoa appetizer:)
