Have any of you ever had one of those days that you didn’t plan out, yet it turned out to be exactly what you wanted to do? Well yesterday I had one of those days and there were numerous points in the day where I just stopped and thought “this is exactly what I want to be doing right now.” Here’s how it went down:
I arose after a slumber of about 11 hours, showered which I usually hate but liked for some reason yesterday and made my way to brunch with my closest girl friends. We went to Resto to celebrate my sister’s and my birthday a day early. (Today is actually my birthday! Yippee!) You’ve got to check out the menu for this place because it is insane. If you are a fan of animal parts like pork belly and blood sausage, you MUST go. If you’re not, they still have tons of delicious things you can eat but the food is Belgian so everything is really unique. I had a glorified grilled cheese with fancy cheese and awesome bacon which was out of control. They also have glorious french fries with a homemade mayonnaise – the only correct way to eat a fry. The decor is the restaurant is incredibly charming and if you are a party of 6-8, you should request the table right at the front window. With the windows open and the sun shining and the breeze blowing in…it was just perfect!
After brunch we rolled our fat selves to Madison Square Park to stare at the cute dogs, bask in the sun and digest. Although it was only in the mid 70’s, people were already almost naked in their skimpy bikinis trying to soak of every bit of sun they can to get that wonderful tan. We laid there for a bit, chit chatted and all that and then headed over to the Limelight Marketplace. What once was a church turned into nightclub, has now become a high end shopping center including boutiques selling, caviar, hunter rain boots, and Baci Gelato (WHICH ROCKED MY WORLD). Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hazelnut. Just do it. It’s just so strange how my Mom used to tell me about her crazy nights out dancing at this famous club, and now I was perusing the gourmet cheese selection in the same place.
I even spotted a celebrity!
Can you guess who it is?
Oh, just Jimmy Fallon. New love of my life. Unfortunately he was there shopping with his wife.
While at the Limelight, I got a Tarot Card reading that scared the living shit out of me.
It was so accurate to everything that was happening in my life that I didn’t even know what to do with myself. She knew things only my immediate family knows. Personality traits that I like to think I hide well. My future love life?? It was creepy and amazing at the same time. She even told me that I need to detox my body to better focus on my life. How did she know I was thinking the same thing the other day?!? Maybe a future life change coming up? Keep a look out!
From the Limelight, we all headed to Chelsea Market where I was overwhelmed with how much I could have eaten, had I not gorged myself on grilled cheese and gelato earlier. MAN!!!! The whole place was filled with things I love.
Strange cupcakes I’d probably eat. No lies.
And then I was so thirsty I could die, so I got an Iced white tea, called Blue Moon which was white tea with hints of blueberry and vanilla. IT WAS SO GOOD MMMM MMMM!!! At that moment I was like “this day is just so perfect!”
Then I headed home to sit on my roof and relax for a little. No tan, but it was nice. You know how it goes.
Ordered in dinner and watched the Miss USA pageant with friends. My sorority sister was competing so it was wonderful to see her looking so gorgeous on live TV! I did not like the girl who won so I’m calling for a rematch! She kept saying “Hi Mom.” It bothered me.
It was just one of those really perfect days. Didn’t do anything I didn’t want to do. The weather was wonderful. The company was just right. It was just great. It would have been better if my friend won Miss USA, but fate says there’s a reason she didn’t, so how can I be mad? I think she’s meant for even better.
