***DISCLOSURE: Even though it sound like all we did was eat, keep in mind, we shared everything. We even shared our little waffle, each of us having only 2 bites. And Tuesday when I had to get on the scales at Dr. C's, I hadn't even gained any weight; thank goodness.
November 19: Woke way to early like 3:30AM to catch a 5:30 flight after 2 hours of sleep you would have thought I would have been able to sleep on the plane. Maybe a little, but not much. We had a short layover in Minneapolis and then onto NYC. We arrived around 1:30PM. We got our week's metro pass for a mere $30 which is the way to go if you will be there for a week, totally worth it. We boarded a bus, then the metro and then walked the 2 blocks to Shelley's apartment. Oh, it was so good to see this dear friend of mine. I have been so blessed to have the McConkie's as my friends. They are the kind of friends that you can go without seeing for a good while and pick up just like you had seen them a week ago. They have the cutest little family ever. Being the gourmet cook that Shelley is, she made us a delicious taco soup for dinner. After dinner my cousin Kyrie came over and she then took us to Cafe Lalu, which is the cafe where Meg Ryan waits for her email friend to visit her in You've Got Mail and then he doesn't come, well he does, but he doesn't. I love that show and I loved this cute cafe. I had the best chocolate mouse cake ever! Of course every night we talked late into the evening with our friends and cousins.
|Isn't this the sweetest Melanie ever!|
Good By NYC, Until Next Time!
PS. We also had Levaines Bakery chocolate peanut butter cookies which I brought home and were still delicious a few days later. Had tea at Jocque Torres, a cupcake from Sugar Plumm and a bagel with sun dried tomato cream cheese from 72nd Bagels. Kyrie had also bought Thompsons everything bagels with vegi cream cheese from the supermarket which were delicious too and can be found at your local supermarket; check them out, yummy toasted!
