Hi, there! Happy Saturday! :mrgreen:

So, here’s why I love New York City so much:

  • A bunch of my good friends live here
  • The food!
  • You can walk everywhere

My day included all of these elements, so I enjoyed a nice, little Saturday in the city.

This morning, Caitlin, her mom, and I met Theodora and Ashley for brunch at Friend of a Farmer. This restaurant was highly recommended, so I was really looking forward to brunch. I was also wicked hungry!

Friend of a Farmer was absolutely adorable”” warm, inviting, and very country chic.

Not surprisingly, my meal started with an iced coffee with milk.

Caitlin and I shared the fresh seasonal fruit plate, which was served with an amazing maple cream sauce. It was a perfect compliment to the sweet fruit. In fact, it was so delicious, I sort of wanted to drink it! 😉

For my meal, I ordered the Farmer’s Special, which was grilled open face cheese and tomato brushed with olive oil, fresh basil, and garlic dressing on homemade bread.

Ladies who brunch.

After brunch, we said goodbye and went our separate ways. I did some shopping, sightseeing, and lots and lots of walking around the city.

Eventually, I found myself at the Union Square Farmers’ Market.

Being there put me in such a good mood! The weather was beautiful!

While wandering around, enjoying the sunshine, I sipped a cold pear cider.

Then, I headed to Billy’s Bakery for a cupcake. A number of people left comments on CNC, sent emails, and tweeted me about this bakery, I just had to check it out”” and it did not disappoint! Thanks for the recommendation, guys!

I bought a Carrot Cupcake with cream cheese frosting, and it was excellent.

The carrot cake wasn’t as good as the cupcake from Baked & Wired, but the frosting gave it a run for its money! Holy yum! Why is cream cheese frosting so amazing?!? I could happily eat it everyday. Really.

My feet were killing me after walking for 3+ hours around the city, but now they’re feeling rested and ready to hit the pavement again.

See ya!
