I couldn’t help but think of that Mister Rogers quote as I walked around today. My husband is in Teach for America and he has his first big meeting today. He spent the day at Starbucks and is now off to Manhattan. Anyways I met him and walked him to the subway and then ran some errands (post office, buy a magazine, quick grocery run). As I was walking around I figured I should do a blog post about some of the reasons I love this neighborhood.
Many of the stores have classy windowscapes such as this
This is a legitimate store; they sell superpowers and the proceeds go to a program http://www.826nyc.org/ that encourages children’s creative writing
Melissa Sweet, a famous bakery, puts this on their sidewalk sign:
How cool is that? As I walked around I got a major craving for mac-n-cheese so I headed to the grocery store and picked up this:
It’s ok, but not great. It was only 300calories, but it has way too much sodium and it’s more like noodles in cheese sauce than mac-cheese. What I was craving was the crunchy toping you end up with from the ones made by Annies.
I also grabbed a fountain diet coke on the way home.
Boringlyadditionally since I’m doing this for accountability I should add that I ate a lemonhead from my wedding stash earlier.
Our wedding colors were yellow and blue so as favors we gave out lemonhead and dark chocolate Lindt truffles.
