Luckily, two of Ben’s best friends live in New York and another one lives in Boston and took a bus out to NYC. We only see them once a year or so (at weddings) and I know that really sucks for Ben. So, we had already planned to spend a lot of time with them this weekend.
After dinner we went back to his friend’s apartment and just hung out. I slacked all weekend on taking pictures, but I swore I took a pic of their apartment and can’t find it?! I’m so intrigued by New York City living since I’m such a suburbs girl.
Dinner Saturday was noteworthy – I think this is the first time I’ve had real New York style pizza?! Pizza is my favorite food and I don’t know of any good pizza places near my home. I was looking forward to carb loading before the race with a big ol’ slice.
My mom and I split 2 slices and I think I am a fan of thin crust?! I would have never expected it since I’m such a bread fan, but I think thin crust might be my new fave (outside of legit Chicago deep dish in Chicago only).
I figured since we were flying out of JFK there would be a lot of food options past the security line. Wrong. There was only one place open and all they had were plain bagel sandwiches or muffins. Bah.
At 6am Peet’s opened and I bought an iced coffee. The sunglasses are necessary given my extreme lack of sleep this weekend.
I am so so ready to go home! I would have went straight home Friday if it wasn’t for Ben and my mom being here with me.
Now I’m blogging from the air on a Virgin America flight. It’s so fancy.
We’re supposed to land around 11am and then I am hoping to get some errands done before I go back to work tomorrow. My boss text me as soon as the news the marathon was cancelled hit – I think she thought I would end up working today, but I’m kind of a zombie.
