Week One

Hey hey awesome people!

I have spent the last week in a sleep/food/walking/talking/general epicness haze and it's been brilliant!  My boy has been completely amazing, taking me to all these cute little eateries and diners, letting me go to bed early and sleep in late (and take naps in the afternoon, woohoo!) and we've been kicking back, relaxing and spending some well-needed time together!  It's been *so* great!

I've realised, in picking out pictures I've taken so far on this trip, that I am completely and utterly in love with food (and you, S, don't worry!) I'm one of those people that goes 'WAIT! Don't start eating! Let me take a picture!'  I find that I associate a lot of memories, particularly of America, with the places we've gone to eat; it helps remind me of the things we did the day, where we went, the things we talked about.  So here are some of my many food pictures so far!

Here I am looking *really* unenthusiastic about my awesome sundae which we ordered in Serendipity (have you seen that movie?  Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack, really cute!) It was absolutely huge, full of fresh bananas and the most incredible peanut butter pie!

We wanted pancakes for breakfast, so we went to a sweet little diner called 'Brownstone Diner' and picked up some super scrummy pancakes!  I had mine with bacon, egg and cheese in it (devilishly delicious, I've never eaten anything like that for breakfast before!) The pancakes were light and fluffy and the eggs were cooked to perfection!

Fast forward to a different breakfast!  This time we went for bagels (S had a croissant) at a little cafe called Cosi.  Mine was packed full of eggs, bacon and cheese (are you sensing a theme here?  I think I've found my favourite breakfast combination ever!) on a perfectly toasted bagel!  Oh man, it was super tasty!

Here is a sneaky picture I took of S with his breakfast croissant, which was apparently delicious!  This guy has to put ketchup on *everything*.  Literally.  I've double triple warned him - NO ketchup on the roast dinner I am cooking tomorrow.  On pain of death!

In other, less food-related news, we went to Dave and Buster's (it's like a grown-up arcarde - *so* awesome!) and won like a million tickets!  Okay, it was actually about 3,000 but woo!  We've walked a lot around New York, Jersey City and Hoboken, watched a movie at the cinema, taken the two cute little doggies out for walks (will post pictures of them next time - prepare for the adorableness!) and just been having a great time!  I really needed this break so badly and it's been great for me and S to spend some good, quality time together!

The rest of next week (since I fly home on Friday night, boo!) we're going to watch the Giants play tomorrow, cook a roast dinner, celebrate our own mini-Christmas while I'm here, go gambling at a casino and have a completely wonderful time!  I hope you guys are doing great, I've got so much catching up on blog reading to do when I get home!  Take it easy, have a wonderful weekend!
