Many of you know that I have a "gentleman caller" (which is now what I will forever call him...makes me feel all Jane Austen-y,) who lives in the bustling metropolis of New York City. Over the past year-ish that we've been dating we've bounced back and forth every month or so between Boston and NYC, and I was so excited to get to take a little impromptu trip to see Mr. B this past weekend. Knowing that this might be my last trip to the city for an extended amount of time, (more on that at a later date...promises) I wanted to take the opportunity for us to visit some of the places that were a bit out of our routine, so on Saturday we decided to head over to the famous Katz's Deli for some AMAZING Pastrami sandwiches and then jump on the train for a trip to Coney Island. We ended up having a wonderful day on the beach, (hypodermic needle free thank goodness,) boardwalk, and with a little stop at the NYC Aquarium (b/c y'all know we can't resist a good aquarium!) I loved experiencing the nostalgia of old New York and the carnival atmosphere (complete with a corn dog from the original Nathan's... you know how happy I was.) The day was a bit overcast and it really made the area look so vintagey and washed out... I couldn't get enough of it. The only thing that could make it better would be to see it at night with all of that glowing neon.) Check it out below...

|I am obsessed with old signage....as you can tell from basically all of the following photos|
|I wanted to ride Spook-A-Rama SO bad!|
|Literally the only photo I took of the two of us...separately. (This is Andrew trying to look as cool as me in my sunglasses and me eating a delicious corndog.)|
|This was basically me dying. DYING for yarn.|
|So I was trying to not be a total creep while taking the photo over a woman's shoulder...which resulted in a blurry photo where I totally looked like a creep :)|
