>Last weekend’s trip to NYC with the girls was nothing short of a blast. The photos from the trip speak for themselves.
Check out the slideshow below and make sure to crank up the volume.
(Sidenote: All photos were taken with Viola’s Canon Powershot G12.)

Ticket? What ticket?

Dip your card? Hmmm. I’ve never seen such wording any card accepting machine before.

Bundled up so warm, this guy fell asleep on the job.
A Gas Mask Bong?! I wouldn’t know anything about that.
Lunch at Cosi’s.
Barbecue chicken pizza was outstanding.
Viola and Marzena took the “come in from the cold” sign a little too seriously and made themselves feel right at home.
Shoe Department at Saks Fifth Avenue.
We stopped by Cafe SFA for late afternoon apps and drinks.
The next series of photos require some serious explanation. It’s not what it looks like. It’s worse.
As Saks Fifth was closing down for the day and we were making our way out of the 8-story shopping center, Marzena noticed The Bridal Salon within the store was still open. And when we walked in, there was no one there. The entire bridal salon with hundreds of designer wedding gowns at our disposal … Like OH, EM, GEE!
Call us crazy but we wasted no time in grabbing a dress each and running to a fitting room. Prancing around in expensive wedding gowns and taking photos seemed like a lot of fun at the time. We feared someone would come in at any given moment and order us to stop this charade. But no one came and we continued to try on dresses and loosing sense of time. We probably would have tried on every dress in the store if it wasn’t for the fact we suddenly got locked out of our fitting room. Wearing just wedding gowns, and all of our belongings locked in another room we needed to get help. Bernadette, the only smart one who didn’t participate in this dress-up, went to get help. That’s when we realized there was no one around and the entire SFA store has been closed for 45 minutes. Bernadette finally tracked down the store security who were already locking up the main doors. The looks on their faces when they walked into the bridal salon and saw not one, not two, but three “brides” was priceless. They were confused and laughed and said they never seen anything like it. Apparently, someone forgot to lock up the salon when they left home for the day. We changed back into our clothes and left the store with an exciting story and photos to remember it by. But I’m sure someone got in trouble the next day for leaving that door open.
