Instamix: NJ/NYC/CT & Bridal/Bach Party

Hey everyone! I am currently in CT visiting my nephew and taking care of him for the day which is why this update is pretty late. This weekend was super busy with filming a tutorial Friday morning before heading to NJ for my sister’s bridal shower and bachelorette party the next day. So let’s get started with it.

I was assigned to take my sister into the city by noon. Once we got there, we were greeted with some lunch to start the day – the Bayou Beast from Two Boots. A pizza loaded with creole ingredients of shrimp, sausages, endives and more.

Then we headed over to the surprised location with sister being led in by blindfolds. The girls arranged a cupcake baking session at Butter Lane for everyone and the favors were monogrammed initials of bride and grooms on the aprons. I didn’t know this but my youngest sister alerted to me that right next door was listed as top place to grab ice cream. Unfortunately by the time we were done, we were all on a sugar high and there was already a line forming, so saving Big Gay Ice Cream for next time. =D

Next, the 10 of us headed back to apartment to get ready for a night out with few drinks at Top of the Standard located right in the Meatpacking district. Last photo in set is one of my three sisters and I.

The view at the top of Standard was definitely amazing but be sure to make a special stop to the restroom. It’s more amazing there too. ;P After some drinks, we headed to a private dinner reservation at Spice Market. The food there was pretty good but we must have all the air blasted into our little corner, because it was freezing.

Overall it was a great night and the girls did an amazing job putting everything together. The next day, it was off to CT to visit my nephew since I haven’t seen him in forever.

Was trying to take a photo of us but looks like he wanted to be in the limelight – lol.

Alright, that’s it for the updates. I am heading back to MD later tonight. It was a great weekend, but it’s time to head back and see hubby. Miss him terribly! I hope you all have a great Monday!
