Sunday in the (High Line) Park with Amanda

Today was a really great day.

One of my best friends in all the land (Amanda) came into the city and we ate, walked around, ate, shopped and ate some more. Did I mention we ate? Out feet were screaming by the end of the day but it was well worth it. Oh, Amanda also gave me the most beautiful peacock-themed notebook and cameo ring for my birthday. She’s a keeper.

We started our expedition in Chelsea with a delicious lunch at Cafeteria. It’s a restaurant I used to pass by quite often when I worked on 17th Street, so it was cool to finally sit down and eat. I had a croissant breakfast sandwich with avocado (yum) and she had a ridiculously large 3-tiered chicken club (also yum). I have to add, everyone who works at this place is seriously nice. Exemplary customer service all around.

Amanda had never been to the High Line, so after lunch we went over and checked it out. I love the High Line, it’s really beautiful and a nice getaway from the city streets. Although, today it was really crowded so… we didn’t stay up there too long!

I put a few things in my mental shopping cart and will be returning soon, with August-birthday-month coupon in hand. Our day of walking around called for a serious refuel, hence our next stop at L’Arte del Gelato. I had an affogato, which was simply perfetto, and Amanda had mint chocolate chip. It was a win all around.

With our tummies full of gelato, we made our way back to 5th Avenue and set out for a little shopping. It was quite successful, as I now have a very cute yellow dress from Joe Fresh hanging in my closet. Our day then came to a close, as Amanda had to get back to Long Island. We browsed a few more stores and made our way up to Penn. It was great to have her in the city for the day.

Fun-filled Sunday, y’all.
