My normal routine goes like this: Tues-Sat: work. I might go and spend time with my boyfriend after work, but normally I go home. I sometimes make myself dinner, normally just have a big meal during the day and have a snack at night. I work late two nights a week, and days I don’t, I like to spend time watching hulu or netflix and knitting.
Now, Friday nights are hard sometimes because I have to work the next morning and sometimes I’ll go to a party or out to dinner or dancing so, sometimes, that’s interesting (like Saturday mornings I’m sometimes the teeniest bit hung over. Not often!). Saturdays, weather permitting, I go running after I get out of work, then, I’ll have some “me” time (paint my nails, do a hair treatment, eat some chocolate, you get the idea!) then I might go out to dinner with my boyfriend or friends maybe go to a party. Sundays are for laundry and putzing around the house. Mondays are for errands, grocery shopping and sometimes cooking.
And that’s it. I’ve been doing that for about three months now. I do things I enjoy but day trips are so easy to do where I’m located (two hours from Boston or New York).
So, yesterday, Christana and I took a bus to NYC for the day.
We went to Soho.
Everyone knows Purl Soho is the best, at least I hope you do! I love this store. I wish it was my local yarn store. Almost as much as I wish WEBS was my LYS but Purl always has niche yarns – I picked up some Loft by Brooklyn Tweed. Hoping that I will be back soon – there was some more yarn I wanted just didn’t want to buy ALL the yarns on this one trip.
We did meet up with some other people for a bit and then went to the met. This girl was on a mission to instagram this shot.
I’ve never been to the met and it was very much fun – hoping to go again and soon. Maybe on a less crowded day!
All and all it was a good day, we ate good food and chatted as we headed to our various destinations It was definitely a day made possible by the introduction of an iphone into my life – I used it constantly to look up where we wanted to go was! I do have more various moments and share as well as yarn, more later. (we DID miss our bus – somewhat epic and crazy taxi ride, stressful running through port authority and waving after the bus – still did miss it. LUCK us – it was not the last bus – so we just had to wait 2 hours for the next, so at least we made it home, though at 1am)
