Well, Hello Strangers…

Oh man, have I missed you all!  It’s been almost 6 months to the day (!) since I last posted and lots of things have changed in my life.  First of all, WordPress has made a lot of upgrades to their blogging platform, so it feels really weird and unfamiliar and it’s making my armpits kind of clammy.  I’ve also been at my not-so-new job for a little over 8 months now and I am incredibly happy with the company I work for and the people I work with.  They make me laugh and I wear a lot of Chambray now…and combat boots.  I took a real vacation to visit my roommate from college and other friends out in LA which almost spurred a spontaneous move out there, but decided I would miss New York too much. I’ve also started saying “Oh man!” a lot in everyday conversations (see above), so look out.  

Keeping with tradition, I have continued to eat my way through Manhattan, Westchester County and some of Long Island, and have found some things you might find interesting which I will post about in the future.

This little tidbit was sent to me this morning and it came in the form of: Ice Cream.

Frozen Yogurt, to be specific.  You all know that I can tear through a pint or 9 of ice cream on occasion, but here’s a reason to not feel as guilty when doing so.  My best friends Ben and Jerry have come out with a line of GREEK FROZEN YOGURT.

Imagine your loyal breakfast friends Fage or Chobani made into a tasty dessert! Frozen yogurt with fiber?  It’s like Jamie Lee Curtis’ dream!  Flavors that I am most excited for are banana peanut butter and blueberry vanilla graham – hot damn!  No more flavors with the word Chubby in them for me!  I hope my local bodega carries them soon so they can charge me $12.  Yay Manhattan!

And yay for being back.

All in favor of a 4 day work week raise your hand.

I was so busy having fun this weekend that I didn’t post anything for you all to read!  Not that you were sitting by your computers reading blogs or anything.  I’m sure you all were at the Jersey Shore, barbequing with family and friends, slammin back hot dogs, tanning by some body of water or in a park if you live in the city.  Way too busy to be glued to your computer.  I can’t wait to tell you everything I did this weekend.  It was such a blast.

Friday I went to the Intrepid Summer Movie Series to watch Top Gun on the deck.  I had never done this before, but apparently a lot of people knew about it, and for good reason.  It was so much fun!

That’s a big boat! How cool is this!

That’s a big line!

The view made the wait much more bearable.

As we climbed the stairs with the masses of people, I never thought we’d get to the top.  It was very obvious my apartment building has an elevator, hence my wheezing.  When we got to the top deck, we raced to find the perfect spot for viewing.  Bank of American sponsored the event so they gave out these padded mats so that your butt didn’t fall asleep during the movie.  So thoughtful! We spread out our blankets and jealously watched as some people set up awesome foldy chairs.  Next time, we bring chairs!

Me and my friend Alex waiting for the movie to begin.

Never to be without snacks, my mother raised me well, I bought us chips, popcorn, and cookies!  Combine that with the white wine and vodka with smuggled in and I’d say our dinner was pretty perfect.  It’s pretty crazy to think you are sitting on this massive ship watching Tom Cruise when he wasn’t the worst person on the face of the planet with the New York skyline to your back and the water in front of you.

The view was gorgeous.  Especially this view:

A tramp stamp of the New York City Skyline complete with Lady Liberty herself!  Thanks for sitting right in front of me!  But otherwise the view was just:

Beautiful.

You know what else was beautiful?  Going to the Shake Shack twice this weekend.  I’m not sure how people picture heaven, but mine might look like this.  Especially since this picture has been photoshopped, as there is NO LINE.  IMPOSSIBLE!

Is this not what the big house upstairs should look like? Full of these delicious babies known as the Shack Burger?

It’s a cheese burger with this special sauce on it and it is out of this world good.  Get an order of fries too and you won’t be sorry!  I’m a Jewish girl so a shake with a burger just doesn’t seem kosher, but for those who can stomach it, DO IT. (Don’t mind my cheeseburger.)

Other momentous points of me weekend included getting a bit of a tan and BUYING A LAMP FOR MY BEDROOM FINALLY!

For friends and family who know me and my undying search for a lamp for the left side of my bed, the quest is now over.  Alert the media! I found this adorable white lamp at Home Depot and it was even on sale! Be still my sale loving heart.  Now my OCD self can rest easy knowing that the two sides of my bed are equally anchored with lamps.

It’s like a little lamp puppy it’s just so cute.  Love.  Now what else can I fixate on and annoy everyone about?   A headboard maybe?  🙂

So that was a brief synopsis of the highlights of my weekend.  I hope everyone had a good one too!
