Woke up bright and early, rented a car and nearly flew to Jersey. I picked up my Zip car on the UES at 8:30am, was in Trenton by 9:30am and was at the Cherry Hill Nordstrom by 10:15am. I made some quick returns and one awesome purchase. Then I headed up to Florence to spend the day with the Fam (and pick up my new TV) and had an awesome home cooked dinner made by my Aunt Dawn. Then I "helped" Jonathan with his Math project, but really I got a little more involved. You can say I got a little too excited about picking the crayon colors and coloring in little boxes. My Aunt said my eyes lit up when I found the gel crayons. What can I say, I've always liked to color. Then I jumped back into the car with my new passenger Toshiba) and headed back to the city. And just like heading South it was just as fast going North, I was in Hoboken by 9:00pm and home by 9:30pm (it was a little rough getting through mid-town).
Then I set up my new TV, which is much better than the tiny thing that once lived in my living room.
A very long and successful day of SHOPPING!! My friend Tanya was such a dear to be my personal shopper for the day and help me find a dress for the two upcoming weddings I will be attending this Spring. First stop was L&T finding 4 options, then Bloomingdales who had 3 solid options and finally a tempo with the winner! A cute 1-shoulder, short, black satin dress with pockets! We rewarded ourselves with a cupcake, which I think was fitting since I'm sure I burned a lot of calories trying on, zipping up, and doing a twirl. Next step - accessories! But out of some of the solid options are dresses I'm going to put in my closet anyway.
Usually I have cases of the Mondays, but today I apparently didn't. After work I had a brow wax/tint because a girl needs eyebrows especially if they are naturally blonde. With a quick trip to Eli Zabar's to pick up ingredients for Wednesday's dinner I headed home to make lasagna. I made two bread-pan loaves of the yummy goodness; one for lunch tomorrow and later this week and one for the freezer. I then thought, why not prep all the ingredients for Wednesday's dinner with Mike & Jean. Then why not check a few more things off my list while I'm at it... and so I did. Now I'm updating my blog then hole punching all my handouts from my NYU classes for my uber organized binder I'm putting together. Woah, I'm exhausted...
