We did some people watching ( is there a university near here??) and relaxed and chatted. It was so nice to have a friend from home here in the city with me :) We got back to the apartment, and got everything situated for a good night's sleep.
The next morning we took a nice walk over the central park, and made our way to the resevoir.We did a short walk around, and then went to Blooming Nails for a mani/pedi. We both agreed it had been too long since we had done that! We went back to the apt, and got our selves together for some shopping - we went to a place on 105th street - Ashley Stewart - I saw it on TLC's What Not To Wear - not going there again as we found nothing.
After watching some of the original Fantastic 4 movie (thank you TiVo!), we crashed, incredibly tired from all that shopping!
Sunday morning we all woke up late - coffee started around 7:30, and we read the Sunday NY Times and snacked on some sweets from Starbucks. I should have gone to the bakery across the street, but frankly I forgot it was there until after I left Starbucks. Next time :)
After some reading, coffee, sweets, snoozing and more snoozing, Ann and I went to Timothy's on the River for brunch. We were surprised to learn that mimosas and bloody mary's can't be served prior to noon in NYC - learn something new everyday! We did get to have a bloody mary dessert after our tasty omlets.
Ann packed up her back pack, and we took the subway to Macy's. Ann said "this really is the largest store in the world!". Ann found a pretty casual dress and an awesome Calvin Klein t-shirt - me, nothing. I'll go back later. Then we walked across the street to Penn Station so Ann could catch the Acela back. It was about 5 minutes late, but I have a feeling she'll enjoy the 3.5 hour ride with her book and no demands :) Thanks Mike for stepping up so she could come.
