Prepping for a family trip to NYC

Prepping for our family trip to NYC -

Next week all of us are heading to NYC for a long weekend. I’ve got the Better Homes & Gardens’ Stylemaker event to attend, and my boys are tagging along for the ride.

Can I be honest? I’m so not prepared for what to wear for this trip. Maternity clothes throw me for a loop – it’s really hard to feel polished and on top of my style game right now when all I really want to do is give in to my love for Lululemon leggings (what I typically reserve for lounging at home when non-knocked-up) all day every day for the rest of my days. Plus I’m still kind of in that awkward phase where *I* feel like I look pregnant and not just all-the-burritos, but apparently people are still shocked when I tell them no, I am in fact, expecting. “WHAT?! OMG!” (tangent: Could people maybe act a little less shocked? I mean come on. Did you really think I let myself go this much in the gut? SOB)

We are really excited to show NYC to Jude. It’s one of our favorite cities and he’s old enough now to experience it. We’re definitely hitting a few faves like the Shake Shack and Eataly, but I’d love to hear any suggestions you have on NYC with kids. Thoughts? Suggestions? Favorite hidden gems?
