happy new year, lovies! hope you all had a fabulous weekend ringing in the new year!
the house was perfect. it was close enough to town but far enough away that we weren’t worried about keeping the neighbors up with our late night dance parties.
we drove down mid-morning on friday and headed back today. we spent the night in on friday and headed to explore woodstock saturday. tiffany and i vacationed in phoenicia a couple of summers ago and we knew we couldn’t go back to the catskills without a trip to our favorite restaurant, shindig. you most certainly cannot pass up the tinker tots when you go – they have the important job of transporting the ranch aioli STRAIGHT to the mouth.
we stopped in a couple of stores and finished our afternoon out at one of the coolest bars in the town – station. there isn’t much to it, but holy moly it was real cute. some of the boys played pool while the rest of us relaxed and enjoyed some hot toddies.
our friend, katie, shares her birthday with NYE so we were sure to celebrate real well on saturday. that night we ate an amazing meal put on by a couple of the girls. some college drinking games, a dance party that carried us into 2017, and a competitive game of exploding kittens was how we rounded out the night.
i woke up new year’s day and, like the rest of america, felt like i needed some health in my life so i headed to a local juice bar and picked up a bunch of juice. after, a big group of us headed down the road for a long walk. a nap, some reading, football viewing and more lounging was how we finished up sunday. tomy and benji scoured the fridges and threw together some of the most amazing pizzas for sunday night – bacon, brussel sprouts and carmelized onions – yes please.
overall, it was an absolute blast. if you’ve never been to the catskill area – i HIGHLY recommend it, there’s seriously something for everyone.
i’ll leave you with this little funny – my friend, jess, randomly exchanged all the toilet paper rolls with these ones that she found on etsy… it provided us, with a bunch of laughs.
happy new year – may 2017 bring everyone health, happiness and endless travel! xo
