So this weekend I was off from work, so I made a trek to the dirty Jerz for some fun. It was one of my sorority sister's birthdays this weekend and she lives in NJ and invited me to come hiking and drinking with her and her friends. Even though this was my last weekend in the city, it sounded fun to me. Count me in.
After hiking on the Appalachian trail, we stopped for dinner at a Jersey diner. I've barely experienced any type of diner, let alone a Jersey diner. Let's just say that I was impressed. The picture below however, stole the show.

Also, Janice's dog Daisy provided me with some entertainment. I had half of a blueberry muffin wrapped in plastic wrap in my purse and Daisy unwrapped it and ate it on Sunday morning to provide herself with second breakfast. She's a smart little bugger.
As I was meandering around town today, I ran into an adorable European-style coffee shop and since I had all the time in the world I stopped. I can't really describe how I felt in the store, but this feeling of happiness came over me as I watched the shoppers scurrying by the front window with their purchases. I think it might've been the fact that I was listening to Christmas music on my phone. But something about Christmas music and sipping that cafe au lait in that quaint coffee shop made me just relax and enjoy the evening. I sipped coffee, people watched, and read Anne of Green Gables on my eReader. Such a lovely day.
However, the excitement isn't over. As I passed Barnes & Noble today, I noticed a picture of Rachael Ray and stopped. She was doing a book signing for her new book tonight!!!! I met her in person!!!
For dinner on the way home I stopped at the happiest place on earth. No, not DisneyWorld, even better.....Whole Foods.
I'll leave you with a gross picture of my dinner.
