In the Evening

Mid mornings to late(ish) afternoons are our peaks here. We are up and out that door exploring while most of you are all sleeping and then we come home and trot out a blog post. It’s like our homework and we giggle to ourselves as we tap tappity tap out our posts and then file them with a “IT’S UP” where the other quickly reads the post and tells the other how funny we are.

Cause we are.

Then there is a cheeky wine. Then maybe a skype call home to the kids. Then we get ready for an evening drink and dinner somewhere. We can then choose ensembles and take the time to do makeup and change outfits and have fun like you did when you were in your twenties and you were going out. TIME TO OURSELVES. What a thing we Mum’s don’t get. I am soaking it up. We scrawl through emails and comment suggestions from all our readers and whatever is the most common is where we end up going.

Tonight the winner was Eataly on 5th Avenue. It was like a huge food hall, but like a David Jones Food Hall all with the most amazing Italian places and a beer garden on the rooftop where we sucked back a bottle of Prosecco like it was nobodies business. Then downstairs we wandered through all the shops. ANYTHING Italian you could want was here.

And some other things too popping up. Nice brows.

Mrs Woog wanted me to take these pasta’s home to cook. I am NOT cooking this holiday, you just cannot make me.

We came out and looked up. LOOK! That skinny famous building. Otherwise known as the Flatiron building.

And some other fancy, nice one. The empire state building keeps changing colours to different countries for the Olympics I think? It was Green and Gold when we went past!

It was time for dinner and drinks. And drinks. We like drinks. And this building. The Chrysler building. It’s both our favourite’s – just down the road from where we live and what a view we had of it tonight!

It was Italy’s time on the Empire State Building when we were there.

There is just something happening here every single minute. This is 10.30pm on a Monday night.

I was drinking wine. How unusual. Looking old around the eyes Beverley – REHYDRATE already!

There was Olympics on. Only showing Yankee’s winning events. How are the Australian’s doing? We have no idea.

And there’s me taking photos. Always with the photos.

And the pizza.

    Oh my god, we are leaving in 7 weeks to head over to the Big apple. My very first time out of Australia and I am very excited. Getting even more so, from seeing your snaps. Thank you for sharing. I think you’re funny. Bam I’ve said it.

  3. Have you been to Balthazar for brunch yet – voted one of New York’s finest. Norwegian Eggs were superb. Like Eggs Benedict but with salmon and sits on top of little cubed sautéed potatoes. Best brunch I’ve ever had. Oh and brownies from Fat Witch bakery (check out their website, on Oprah’s favourite things list and really yummy brownies) and
    Oh I wish I was there!!!!
