WIAW from NY

I am so happy to be back at WIAW this week. I missed everyone last week but I definitely was loving my vacay in NYC!
Brian and I at our Friends wedding
Although I am Detoxing this week (read no food), I have plenty of delish foods to send your way from my trip. To stay with Jenns theme of fun, food, and fitness I will be throwing in some pictures of my hotel workouts and some super fun vacation pictures...

Peas and Crayons
Here is all the different eats and fun moments of the trip followed by some hotel workouts
My sister and I enjoying some drinks our first night in the City.
 First Up is a few pictures of wedding food. I can honestly say this was some of the best food I have eaten and the most amazing, extravagant wedding I have been to.

From top left: Cocktail hour sample plate with chickpea salad, lentil salad and hummus. Braised short ribs and Chicken and waffles (sounds odd I know but so good). Wild Mushroom Angolotti (to die for) and a gotham salad.  Black and white sesame crusted Salmon. Chicken Martini shot, and last but not least desert drinks ( I did not partake in those). 

My favorite non wedding food is found at Ess-a-Bagel. The best Lox Bagel I have ever had and although it was $12.75 it was so worth it!
*on a fun side note they also make vegan cream cheese (made from tofu) in TONS of different flavors. We liked the bagels so much we went back again, however this time I just opted for  Egg Whites on a salt bagel.

Next I went to my BFF's Bridal shower and sampled a few good eats. It was held at a culinary school how could they not be good?

Caprese skewers, fruit and cheese, Peaches wrapped in prosciutto, Veggies, Super cute cup idea which I filled with a Gin Limeade... so delish! And for dessert we had Meringue topped with raspberries filled with Balsamic reduction. 

 The number one reason we went to NYC! RICE TO RICHES!!!!! If you ever are in the City this place is a must. They have about 20 different flavors of rice pudding and delish toppings for it. I only eat half so I always have leftovers. Its way to good I have to savor it.

Ok now that you have seen some of my indulgences while on vacations I leave you with 2 of my hotel workouts and a few pictures from the trip. There will be more to come along with a SUPER AWESOME giveaway coming shortly.

Big Brother and Sister 

 Getting my dance on a t the wedding LOL and Making fun of some others in the process in the process and yes my sister and I have matching tattoos LOL
 Polar Bear at the Central Park Zoo
 Alison Wonderland Statue in Central Park, one of my favorite memories of visiting NYC with my dad

Ground Zero... Breathtaking to say the least. Its crazy to think it was been more than 10 years now. 

Ok Ok I think I have overloaded your brain (if you even made it this far haha) so I will bow out now but there will be more fun things to come. My review of the Waldorf NYC... is it really as good as everyone says or is it all just hype? HMMM Lots of awesome NYC pictures and a giveaway. Stay tuned!
