New York: Day 3

Hey Y'all!!!! :)

I'm so excited because it's only 5 more days til Christmas!!! (Well technically 4, since I'm posting this at 1 am on December 21st)

Today was a really relaxing day again. I woke up at 8 and got ready. After my sister and Scott left for work, I went across the street to a Ukrainian restaurant called Veselka. I got a breakfast sandwich from there, and then got some coffee from Starbucks. I went back home to eat, after repeatedly pushing instead of pulling on my sister's entry door for 10 minutes, and watched some reality tv.

Afterwards, I climbed into bed, and began to read The Hunger Games! Everyone I know that has read this book, most notably my sister, has absolutely loved it and raved about it. I started reading it, and must admit it is pretty amazing. I'm so excited to finish it.

After talking on the phone to my old friend Allie, I took a nap because I wasn't feeling well. Afterwards, my sister got home and we went to dinner with Scott.

I wanted to include this screenshot, just because my sister and I have the immaturity of 5 year olds, and we died laughing at this:


 My favorite restaurant in East Village is The Smith. I love it because they always have amazing food, awesome service, white subway tiled walls, old timey pictures of flappers and other women and men lining the wall, dimlamp-post lighting, along with table candles, a front wall that slides open when the weather is nice, and tables ranging from two-people-to-a-table to huge booths. And when they give you the check, they attach a postcard with their restaurant name and a cute picture--which I always keep as souvenirs. Every time I've gone, it's never let me down.

Anyways, tonight wasn't any different and the food and service was amazing.

I had a Blood Orange Cranberry Spiced Cream Soda to drink:

And for my entree, I had Spaghetti & Meatballs:

I always have to include the lame pictures my sister and I take:

After dinner, we went to Momo Fuku's (Milk), which I've always heard my sister and Scott raving about because of their delicious pies, truffles, and cookies.

We always have to get dessert, mainly because Scott has the strongest sweet tooth I've ever encountered. Scott always gets something I think is really interesting:

CEREAL MILK. I tried his one time, and it seriously tastes exactly like the milk that's left in your cereal bowl when you're done with Cheerios or some other sweet cereal. It's actually reallyyyy good.

I just got a plain ol' chocolate cookie though. It was pretty good, not the most amazing cookie in the world.

I wanted to include some pretty pictures of the busy streets on the walk home:

Then we came home and played around on which is always fun. You should check it out.

We watched some silly Youtube videos and now I'm laying in bed.

Tomorrow (or technically today haha) I'm trying to finish The Hunger Games, and maybe go out and get some supplies to make these Christmas cookies I found on Pinterest. If I do, I'll be sure to include it in my post tomorrow.

Lastly, I wanted to give a few shout outs.

Foremost: to Nicki Hodgins. I love you so much and you'll get through this cause you're so strong. I'm always gonna be here for you, so don't ever hesitate to text or call or come over :) meef

To Dree and Hailey, Happy Birthday pretty girls! I'm so lucky I met both of you through ADPi. You both always add something special to my day :) Have an amazing day.

Lastly: to Ches Edwards. You've become my best friend and one of the best parts of my day. I love our 3 hour phone calls, and one-eye covered FaceTimes, and how I can get choked up on the phone or how we can tell each other how we feel without judgment. I'm very grateful to have met you, and I can't wait to cheer for you January 3rd. When I get home, my creepy self will probably go straight to your house, since I know where it is and everything. You're too cool---I promise I'm not being sarcastic :)

Well I'm exhausted and about to head to sleep. I hope you all are filling your days with holiday music and getting even more pumped for Christmas. My parents are coming on Friday and I couldn't be more excited!

Love you all :)
