Shopping, Soho, and SNL

Over this past weekend, our good friends (Aubrey and Matt) were in town...see our Princeton post here... and of course we had to take the train into NYC for one of the days!
We definitely made the very most out of that day (we were there for 12 hours!), and we had SUCH an amazing time!  

Here we are with our tickets before the train!

First stop - Times Square!

After shopping around, and exploring new shops, we took the Subway to Soho for the first part of the afternoon :)

Had a delicious lunch at Fiat Cafe

And shopped around there for awhile!  
Next up was our afternoon treat - Magnolia Bakery - so yummy!  
(The banana pudding was everyone's favorite hands down)

After waddling out of Magnolia's, we got to get the after-hours backstage tour of some of the NBC studios - thanks to Aubrey's good friend who works for the Dr. Oz show!

Dr. Oz studio!

Jimmy Fallon studio!

And much to John's delight - we even got to go up to the SNL floor - and peek around while they rehearsed for the night!  And guess who walked by, while we tried to act cool....?

Oh just these guys....

It was so much fun - and such a great experience!!  Thanks again Jen!!

Outside 30 Rock :)

What's a trip to the Big Apple without stopping by FAO Schwarz?

For dinner - we had a fabulous meal at Uva in the Upper East Side - amazing!
We loved the prosciutto and mozzarella platter, the pesto pasta, and the Nutella cake for dessert. 
Definitely recommend :)

Thanks for the wonderful visit, Aubs and Matt!!
It was the most amazing weekend!!
