Sister adventures in New York.

Oh hey -- hi there. Yes, it's been a while. Winter needs to go home.

A few weeks ago my sister came to visit me, and I meant to blog about it earlier, but..I kept opting to watch Netflix like it was my job. This was officially the first time she's ever really visited me here in New York, and it was the first time that we got to hang out together -- just us. Needless to say, I was really sad to see her go (despite our mild bickering..because who doesn't fight with their siblings, right?).

We basically ate food, ate food, and ate more food. Oh, and we went to an Arctic Monkeys show -- but really, food was the highlight of her trip here. We went a little crazy trying to hit all of the places we had on our list, though it was all totally worth it. Well, except for the ramen. That was a little bit disappointing.

First stop? Pizza, of course. I picked her up from Grand Central when she arrived on a cold Thursday night, and we went straight to Union Square to grab a slice from Joe's. So delicious I could cry.

We did a trip to Katz's -- though if I'm honest, I think I like Carnegie's better. We also went to grab brunch in my neighborhood twice over the weekend, which was nice! I haven't really eaten out in my area so it was good to get a feel for it. We went through my closet and donated about two-thirds of my clothes, saw the Arctic Monkeys (YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW MANY FEELINGS I HAVE ABOUT THIS -- they were so good, the show was so good), trekked it to Grimaldi's in the snow, saw Monuments Men, stuffed ourselves at Max Brenner's, and finished the trip off with some ramen. I had heard a lot of great things about Totto so we went, but I was really quite disappointed. The pork bun was great, but the ramen in itself was...not that fantastic. Maybe it was that particular night, not so sure, but I don't think it's somewhere I'll be going back to.

To top it all off, we tried to pull an all-nighter the night she left (cue my exhaustion at work the next day and my inability to concentrate on anything) so that she could sleep on the plane. That included a lot of browsing BuzzFeed quizzes, online shopping, and talking about how awesome it would be to live together.

Perhaps one day.
