Jersey Shore

The shore was really beautiful - and even warm (when the sun was out and the wind wasn't blowing too hard). I enjoyed watching the waves, dipping the very bottom of my feet in the water (once, for a second - it was COLD) and eating beach snacks (combos, double stuff oreos, and goldfish).

Espresso and a free puppy

On Monday afternoon, we drove down to Cranbury, NJ (after stopping at Anthropologie). We spent most of the time in the Book Worm, a great used book store.

Bren told me about this sign, and I couldn't resist getting a picture. I also got three books, Spook, When I was Puerto Rican, and Dreaming of Snow in Havana. All for $4 - gosh I love used book stores!

After that it was time for some ice cream and sitting by the lake.

Back to the city

We started the day by chilling in Union Square park and Washington Square Park and then walking through SoHo.

Then we were back on the subway and on to Central Park. We stopped by Dean and Deluca for some sushi and walked to the Alice and Wonderland statue to eat. It was so warm that I kicked off my shoes and rolled up my jeans.

Ahh, sushi and edamame...

Then on to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which was incredible and overwhelming. I saw more art in a few hours than I've seen in my entire life.

The Temple of Dendur

Efes for dinner in New Brunswick - falafel sandwich and dark cherry nectar


On Saturday, we drove down to Princeton in a drizzling rain. We had pizza for lunch and a successful trip to the awesome consignment store (cardigan and gray top). By the time we left the store, the sun had come out. Next, we went to the Bent Spoon for ice cream (one scoop coconut and one scoop lavender mascarpone).

Then we walked around Princeton's campus - such gorgeous buildings! I can't imagine how much tuition must be - maybe I just don't want to know.

Can't resist blooming trees...

After Princeton, it was back to New Brunswick and then to Origin for Thai-French Fusion (awesome deliciousness).

From Central Park

At The Cloisters

So far, I've had Greek food (heaven!), Thai food (double heaven!), a Papaya King hot dog, a knish, gelato (Bren said it was as close to Italy's as she'd ever eaten in the states), and some fancy tea.

Yesterday, we saw Times Square, The Cloisters, Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, part of Central Park, and a very busy part of 5th avenue.

Not sure what the plan is for today - it's raining, so I think NYC is out (and honestly, I'm not sure I'm up for that much walking two days in a row! ;) ) Maybe Princeton?

Otherwise, I'm enjoying visiting Bren and hanging out with Rogue (who remembered me, or at least acted like she did).

Cool stuff on Brenna's ceiling
