I have to cut this short as it’s already 11PM and I got to wake up for the BlogHer 5k tomorrow. I just couldn’t go to bed without posting. :)
Today could NOT have been any cooler.
First let me preface this with… I LOVE… love.love.love New York. Really, I do. Always have. Every picture hanging on a wall at my house is an old black and white photo of the city. Specifically from the 30s and 40s but the era doesn’t really matter… I just love New York!
Now that we got that out of the way. :) Today started with a fun train ride from Baltimore to Penn Station with a bunch of amazing local bloggers. (more about my train hookup here)
I didn’t eat before I left. It was 5:45 AM and I simply grabbed my bag and headed out the door. So by 7AM my stomach was growing. I had a granola bar with me but I knew it wouldn’t hold me over until I got in the city so I hit the cafe car.
Ugh.. Bad I idea. Look at this selection!
Would it kill for them to have a banana or something. Geesh!
I settled on some hummus. It was really the only thing work eating in my opinion.
Of course I was hungry in an hour so I ended up eating that granola bar I brought.
Before I knew it I was in the Big Apple. Just walking out of Penn Station made me smile.
Since I was a bit early I decided to visit my Great Aunt and Uncle in Brooklyn. So I walked to Port Authority to hop on the subway. When I got there I was surprised to see a farmers market!
How cool is that! I love that fresh produce is popping up everywhere! They even had fresh fruit venders along side the hot dog and pretzel guys. (Hmmm Totally spaced on taking a photo)
Anyway… I had a wonderful visit with my Aunt who is a young 89. We chatted and chatted and chatted. It was nice and long over do.
On my way back I purposely got off at Time Square just so I can take a nice long walk back to the hotel. (Carrying my luggage by the way.. talk about calorie burn!)
I checked in, registered for the conference and then headed to a party. Not in a very partying mood mind you. I was simply too tired.
Speaking of… I really got to go to bed! I have to be out the door at 6:30 to meet for the 5k. You can bet your butt I’ll be sleeping in my running clothes tonight! ;)
Here’s my food journal! Not bad for a crazy filled travel day!
