Add new experiences

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)

What’s more than this?

What's more than this?

I went to New York City yesterday with a good friend. We went to the Met and this is the Egyptian section. It was nice to get out of my normal routine of everything and go somewhere that’s more than me, more than Connecticut.

Although I did meet some people that blamed me for the world’s problems (a.k.a harassed us then called us racist. Weird combination but it happened), we also met some people that helped us with no second thought. Nearly unheard of for New Yorkers. I got to see a good friend and I got to go to Purl Soho and other various stops – more about that later.
