Working it out

It's been a busy couple days. On Thursday I had a chance to help Deidre on a shoot up at Columbia so we trekked up there and did headshots for a nonprofit she has been working with. It is great to be able to see what kind of gear you need and just really working free lance all over the city. It is way different than in Ca where you have a car to haul all your gear. SO I am grateful to get to tag along and also be of some help. After we finished that we called the Hughes sisters, Sara and Emily who are in town from Ca and we know from OCC and made plans to pick them up in the cab and head over to Bushwick for dinner. It was great to see some familiar faces as I am definitely missing all my friends at home. We went to a darling little place by Deidre's called Robertas and had yummy pizza and salad with ingredients from right on top of the containers that made up the back patio. You can check out there site here.

Friday was a day for me to just get out and explore the city. I went to one of my favorite spots, Union Square and was so pleased when I cam out of the subway and realized it was the Market Day. I love the market there. I bought (yes I know I am on a buying freeze but I couldn't help myself) a darling little t shirt. I mean come on. I had to right.

I did also buy a couple sun dresses at F21 because it is so hot that is all I want to wear. Pants are out of the question right now and shorts aren't even that comfortable. I also took a little break and sat in Filene's to take in the view that I love so much.

After that I made plans to meet up with Sara and Emily and some of their friends. I am doing my best to meet new people and get out of my apartment regularly. And I am so glad I did because it was a lovely evening. I had had a late snack so I wasn't hungry to meet them for dinner so I just walked the streets around the Village and met up with them on 2nd and 5th. From there Sara the human disposal was in the mood for dessert so we set out to find a good spot. After poopooing Chikalicious mostly because there was no available seating we headed south to Dessert Truck and boy did it not disappoint. I think between the 6 of us we ordered one of everything. I had the Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Rosemary Caramel and blackberries. Yep Ridiculous. Sara ordered three things but the best had to be the donuts with the vanilla creme filling. Emily had a Rosemary and a Thyme ice cream while Kylan had the frozen hot chocolate and Julie ordered the berry something or other. ALL of it was tasty. Major dessert score. Major girl in the city score.
