Fun New Things

Sigh, and yet another Monday morning is upon us. I got home from NYC around 8:30 last night and immediately settled in on the couch to catch my favorite Sunday night shows like True Blood and Kourtney and Khloe. The rest of my New York visit with the boyfriend was fun and exciting.

Yesterday morning after I finished posting and updating you all on Friday and Saturdays activities, the boyfriend and I headed out to start our trek uptown to the Natural History Museum. We made a pit stop at the Union Square Whole Foods store for some lunch first. Shocking, I know, but this was actually my first time in a Whole Foods and I was not disappointed. I checked out both the salad and hot bar, but ultimately ended up getting a Turkey and Pesto Mayo sandwich. It was delicious, although now I think I’ve been bitten by the Whole Foods bug. Thankfully the closest one to me at home is still a little bit of a drive, so I probably won’t go completely broke. After a little subway misstep (taking the express A train all the way to 125th street instead of 81st) we finally made it to the museum.


Being a weekend, the museum was a little crowded, but we still got to see the exhibits we were looking forward to, the dinosaurs and gemstones :).

Chomp chomp!
After walking around for a good 3 hours, the bf and I were both exhausted and hungry again. Luckily we stumbled upon Shake Shacks newest location as soon as we exited the museum. The line was out the door, but we decided it was worth the wait.

I ordered the Shack Burger, fries, and a diet coke. The bf got the same and then a Black and White Concrete (milk shake) which was incredible.

Yummy, yummy burger

I’d like fries with that please!
After eating, it was time to head back downtown so I could pack up my stuff and get right back on the subway and head to Penn Station. That’s always the worst part, saying goodbye and traveling home all alone. You would think after a year of doing this, it would get easier, but saying goodbye is always hard. At least I know that I’ll be seeing the bf every weekend this month and there won’t be any long 3 week breaks again.
Alright, well I’m off to read about what everyone else was up to this weekend. At least I always have that to occupy and entertain me on Mondays :). Have a great day everyone!

  1. Crinkle fries are always so hit or miss with me. But those fries look just PERFECT!

    That was your first time at Whole Foods? Awesome! I honestly don’t go there very often at all- usually only for specific things (ahem salad bar…). It’s a really cool place, but a little out of my budget to be going on a regular basis.

  2. Those fries have my tummy growling. Yay for your first time at Whole Foods. I don’t do my big shop for the week there, but always pop in to pick up odds and ends.

  3. I’ve only ever been to Whole Foods once. The closest one to me is an hour away and downtown. I don’t drive downtown because I get lost. I’m sure that has saved me a fortune. Just a regular grocery store is bad enough! 🙂

  4. I have never been to that museum! Looks like you had a great time! THAT BURGER LOOKS DELIGHTFUL!

  5. That burger looks awesome!! And crinkle fries are the best!!

    Have a great day!! 🙂

  7. everytime I go to the natural history museum I always secretly hope everything will come to life haha!

    • Hahaha I asked the bf if we could get married in the Marine Life hall, and he said only if we could pretend we were being attacked by the giant whale. I love it there.

  8. I want those fries! Yum!
