This past week my mom, sister and I went to NYC! I finally saw Les Mis for the first time since 3rd grade and I’ve never loved the music more. In law school I use to put the Les Mis soundtrack on and my roommate thought I was crazy. But looking over at intermission and seeing my sister Jenny crying made me remember that I’m not alone in my love for that musical.
Similar to my love of Les Mis, I am borderline obsessed with the show Gossip Girl (said with one hand over my chest and the other to the sky). I guess everybody has their favorite show – David’s is Breaking Bad. My sister’s is Grey’s Anatomy (is that still on?) Anyway…. This Hotel is Chuck Bass’s hotel in the show and I’ve ALWAYS wanted to stay here. It was special to watch the sunset behind the New York City skyline from the Empire Hotel’s rooftop.
We shopped, I got to hang with ‘the Geeg’ and I went running in central park. The weather was ON. POINT. with 70 degree days and crystal blue skies. We had brunch at the Nomo Soho, which wins my award for best ambiance of any restaurant ever, although Laduree comes in a very very close second. Just having the Cobb girls in my favorite city for a week was a rare a special treat. It was one of the best trips of my life and one I’ll remember forever.
