josh and i had a meeting in midtown last week and so we met our babysitter at bryant park so the kids could ride the carousel and play with her there while we were away before meeting back up afterwards for some of our favorite pizza together at lunchtime!
for a minute there, it felt like the olden days when i’d load up eleanor and samson before conrad was born and head to bryant park to meet josh for lunch back in his banking days! his favorite pizza spot in midtown was little italy on 43rd (the grandma’s style!) and it was so much fun to sort of revisit that old lunchtime memory together. anyway, it’s still our favorite pizza in midtown, and i included it on this pizza map we did of our favorite pizza spots in nyc if you’re interested.
josh and samson in front of that big bank of america tower where papa used to work! it’s so funny how much we see that building pop up in movies and tv shows the last few years. it’s definitely a beautiful building.
the pizza we go crazy for from little italy on 43rd! the place is tiny and standing room only, but it’s close to bryant park so easy to just get your slice to go and eat outside when the weather is beautiful. we love the grandma style original slice (it’s the square one!)
making a guitar out of a paper plate and getting into the music! she kept saying, “mom, what song is this.”
also, nothing to see here. just a whole lotta pizza grease on one of my favorite skirts thanks to a little pizza that go shoved onto mama’s lap. honestly, this is nothing my bleach pen and self can’t figure out together, and i love that sort of challenge. i poured a ton of water on it to try to lift it the best i could while still at the park and got the rest of the grease out at home later that day. also, one of the reasons i so love new york. i don’t think anyone looked twice at the spot on my skirt during the rest of our time out together.
don’t even mind if the kiss lands on my nose. i’ll proudly take it!
is it so wrong that it’s not even 9AM and i am craving pizza already? happy monday, friends!
