Okay, so remember how I was stranded? Well now I am here until FRIDAY! Holy smokes. After a minor freakout I decided to breathe, call work, figure it out, and lace up my running shoes. Of course, this morning it was sunny and beautiful here in NYC (REALLY Southwest?!) so I was pretty pumped about a run on the Hudson River Trail.
So beautiful! Of course, there were some crazy icebergs in the river too.
I spy the Statue of Liberty! I ran a wonderful 6 miles in about a 8:30 pace. I took my time, brought my camera, and loved every second of it. I also got to wear my sweet glove mitten dealies.
The mitten flap tucks in the back of the glove! How cool is that?
After my run I met up with my amazing friend Jes from my second Bike and Build trip. Can you believe that I was so excited about what we ate for lunch and seeing her that I didn’t take any pictures of us together! Here’s what we looked like on our cross country cycling trip.
Tomato, mozz, and basil. Of course, the waffle fries didn’t hurt either.
You better believe we ordered desert! We decided to share the chocolate eggrolls (complete with peanuts and banana)
Holy freaking smokes. These were insane. We each had 1.5 and moaned through every bite. There was also chocolate and caramel dipping sauce.
Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh. During lunch I got the call from Southwest that I won’t be getting out of here until Friday, so Jes and I made plans to meet up either tomorrow or Thursday! So good to see you lady!
After lunch I stopped at the grocery store to gear up for the storm of the century. There were SO many people there! I grabbed my essentials (of course, these are Madeline essentials which meant sweet potatoes, yogurt, and brussel sprouts) and then headed back to my bro’s apartment for a nap! After my napski I worked on a couple of things, read a little, and decided that it was time for dinner. Since I went a smidge overboard on lunch today I kept things pretty light.
Marshall does not have a functioning oven, so I needed to limit myself to the microwave and stove top! Sweet potato topped with sauteed brussels was just what the doctor ordered.
Oh, and check out what my new haircut looks like when it isn’t professionally styled!
Hey there no makeup face! I am really loving my new do!
Okay my friends, I will be holed up here watching the Biggest Loser and fending off the snow! Michaela doesn’t have work tomorrow due to the storm so if the trains are running we have big plans for a romp in the snow.
Have a great night everyone!
