It’s Friday! Tonight we’re heading into the city to celebrate Allie‘s birthday. Since we haven’t visited the city since we moved, we decided to make a little trip of it! We’re staying in an airbnb in the West Village near my old Chelsea apartment and planning to hit up some of our favorite neighborhood spots: running on the West Side Highway, coffee at Birch, egg sandwiches from The Commons, maybe a cheap mani-pedi for me (why are they SO expensive everywhere outside of NYC??). Then it’s back to work for me on Sunday where I’ll be getting elbows deep in our Thanksgiving catering menu. And as promised, here is my game plan for how to attack your Thanksgiving prep so that you can spend the actual day with you guests and not in the kitchen. Ready, set, go!
