On Sunday, my hubby and I had a chance to have a daytime date together. Our children were with my dad and he didn't have work which never happens LOL So we took the opportunity and ran!
Our original plan was to go to Films at Lincoln Center to see The Big Sleep but it didn't work out for us. Parking took forever and then afterwards we couldn't find anything to do! Can you believe that??!! The book store we frequented was gone, the movies were finishing too late (we had to be home at 7pm because my dad was bringing the kids back), and I didn't want to shop in a store (shocking I know!).
So my hubby got a smashing idea and we heading off to good 'ole Times Square! We parked our car at 48th street and walked our way over to Times Square (42nd Street). On our way we found a bakery that we were just reading about that morning so of course we had to check it out!
It's called Amy's Bread and located in Hell's Kitchen. I have never really walked around or checked out Hell's Kitchen (another area in the City like Chelsea, Greenwich Village, or Chinatown) before so it was super neat to be able to do so.
We ordered a red velvet cupcake and a blondie and it was super yummy! I love checking out new places and comparing them to others. My husband is a big foodie so he has loads of fun with this kinda stuff.
Afterwards we kept walking and discovered a mini flea market happening by Times Square which neither of us had seen before but then again it was a Sunday and it has been a long while since we have been in that area on a Sunday-especially without the children.
There were goodies and food from the left to the right of me. I kept thinking how much my friend Brittany would love to see all of this. I hope one day she can visit. New York has its pluses and minuses but I have to say it always surprises me. The City (what most New Yorkers refer to as Manhattan) is sometimes hard to deal with, I won't lie. People push and shove and they live in their own bubbles most of the time not even acknowledging other human beings. Thats probably the thing I dislike the most and also the feeling of always having to be on the GO...ugh I really don't like that.
But its these surprise flea markets and the like that do thrill me and keep me interested. I found a few goodies-one particular goodie that I cannot wait to mail to Brittany. I am dying to tell her so I have to pack it up and mail is soon before I spill the beans hehehehe
We ate lunch/dinner at Heartland Brewery. They have many of them throughout the City and it was a while before we have been in this one. They brew their own beer and make their own sodas-pretty cool.
We stuffed our faces with appetizers-we had Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls, Herb Crusted Chicken Tenders, and Grilled Chicken/Vegetable Quesadillas. I also had a mash potatos because I love potatos-I won't lie hehehe
Our last stop was the Disney store which is new and I haven't been to-of course I was thrilled and making a mental check list of what "Santa" may get them for Christmas. We walked around Times Square a bit and I captured my hunny with Disney in the background. Sssshhh don't tell him I put a photo of him on my blog heheheh He is such a cutie-even with that fur on his face (yes I am anti facial hair-on my guy only though LOL).
A neat thing happened at the store. An employee came up to me and complimented me on my outfit and my look. My husband loved it hehe
Spending alone time with my husband is always a joy. Our day was amazing and I often looked back on it during this past week because on Tuesday my husband fell very ill and was injured. He has been in the hospital since then but will be release today. He is doing much better but needs to heal and rest.
I thought about our date everyday and how much I really adore him. Not just because he is my husband but because he is such a phenominal man-I truly love the person that he is. He is my favorite person in the world and I dedicate this post to him.
Love you P.B. (initials of his pet name)!!!!!!!!!!
