Girls Only- New York Style

About a month ago, we found out that my little sister had no plans to do anything special for her 30th birthday.  My mom and all the rest of us sisters put our foot down. One simply cannot ring in such a special birthday quietly, at least not in our family. So we concocted a plan: pack all the ladies into a car and head to one of my sister's favorite cities. The fabulous guys in our family released us to have a girls weekend to remember. We had an absolute ball shopping in thrift stores full of name brand goodies ($6 Jason Wu shirt...yes, please), drinking obscene amounts of divine coffee, walking our legs off, exploring side boroughs, giggling as we attempted to annoy each other when the subway cars were packed, and indulging in gluten-free deliciousness at every turn.

I was only willing to drag my heavy camera around for one day; so here are a couple iPhone shots, too.

Now that's how to ring in three decades.
