And this one...
We went to a great little place called Egg for brunch, walked around some vintage shops, went to a couple really cute baby stores, and stopped for an ice cream at Penny Licks. We then headed back and stopped to go to this fantastic Indian market that has every thing you could ever imagine and then hundreds of things you couldn't. I was in heaven of coarse and wished I could just pop down there once a week to cook with some new and crazy ingredient I've never heard of.
That night we cooked some pizzas at Katie's (which has started my now pizza craze/mission to create the best homemade pizza). The next morning we took off at 7 to head to Maryland for the Stewart/Archibald wedding. I was so excited to go inside the Washington DC Temple. It was a beautiful sealing that we were so happy we could be at.
We spent the in between walking around Bethesda then driving around Congressional to feed Rob's golf appetite for the weekend. We then arrived at Ashley's house in Potomac which was an absolutely lovely area that I'm quite sure I could live in. Their wedding was beautiful (as is not evident by my ghastly pictures, again my apologies). We had such a blast dancing and sharing that special time in their lives with them. Thanks for the invite and being such gracious hosts!
We made our way back to NY by about 2 AM and majorly crashed. We woke the next morning to a relaxing day we just spent with Katie and Jeff around the city. Something you must know about Katie and Jeff is that there could not be a more perfect couple for me to spend time with. I love it. Katie shares my passion and talent for cooking and food. Jeff shares my love of all things music. So that night Katie made us some great Indian food and Jeff made us some sweet sweet music! Haha...really though, Jeff is amazing! They have a little recording studio in their living room and upon finding out I'd attempted to write some songs he insisted we record something! It was really so much fun, he had Rob going on the bass, me singing and playing guitar, and he was on the drums. After we recorded it he would play it back and grab an instrument. You want to lay down some trumpet over that? Some piano, some (actually good) guitar? No problem Jeff will just improv you some beats. We had a blast and were so sad to leave the next day. It was so kind of Katie and Jeff to have us stay in their sweet Harlem nest and we hope we're invited back sometime. :)
We headed back to Colorado after that for a few days which I will post at a later date partially because I don't have the pics and partially because this is the longest post of all time.
PS-The Neilson family band sings second rate Sarah originals coming to a store near you soon. Thanks for coming along on our trip with me!
