NYC...what is it about you?

So you guys may have noticed the lack of posts lately, this is due to the fact that Jenn is saving some of her creations for a body ecology e-book that she is putting together for the end of summer. AND because we took a vacay to NYC! The most happenin' place on earth! It feels weird being back in our hometown in Canada, everything is so much slower pace, but we will admit, we were pretty exhausted by the end of our trip. I was looking forward to relaxing a bit because as you know, New York is everything but relaxing.

All in all it was a very successful trip we saw some fab broadway shows (Avenue Q, Book of Mormon, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, we were sitting in the front box (for How to Succeed) - so close to Daniel Radcliffe! who is an absolute sweetum, he can really sing and dance! If you have a chance to see "Succeed" go see it, it was one of the best shows I've seen, all I could say at the end was WELL DONE! Everything was so sleek and together, very satisfying. Book of Mormon was another story, it was incredible, I can't believe Matt and Trey (the creators) actually did this, after it was over Jenn and I were just confused as to how it actually existed. We already knew most of the jokes before going in to see it and still found it hilarious. The concept was just so clever, it totally met and exceeded my expectations.

And Avenue Q was amazing, of course.

I'm looking forward to watching the Tony's this year, I have a feeling it will be pretty epic.

Serious amazing times!

Sweet Potato Rolls from Cafe Blossom (vegan restaurant), the almond sauce was what made it :)
Another highlight was eating at Cafe Blossom, a vegan restaurant (it was the first that popped up when I searched vegan restaurants NYC). Everything was so fresh and packed with veggies like these Sweet Potato Rolls. The salads were rather simple but the cashew ice cream definitely made up for it. I bought a bag of cashews at the Whole Foods there so you can be sure we will be attempting a re-creation. 

The cashew ice cream that our mom said was the best thing she ate on the whole trip.

Me with an ellie I found just wondering around on the street, lol.
