Thanks to the generosity of my old boss, my cousin, and my aunt and uncle, I had amassed a large amount of Macy's gift certificates. Being my first visitor-free weekend after the holiday, I thought it would be a good time to go shopping! I headed down to Herald Square and braved the never-ending crowds at Macy's, and I managed to spend every last time of my free money. I then cruised across the street to get some necessities at H&M. Woo!

After walking by the store every day, my parents went to Orwasher's Bakery to get some yummy fresh breads for breakfast. I finally have sourdough! I haven't been able to find that here.

Today we went exploring. I took mom and dad on the subway down to Herald Square, and we went to the Empire State Building. It was so freaking cold on the observation deck. I got some pretty pictures, though, so it was worth it. I'll post some here once I figure out how. After that, we walked around Herald Square a bit, then headed to Little Italy, which was still decorated for Christmas. I loved all the guys standing in front of each restaurant on Mulberry Street trying to convince you to come in. "Hey, Bella, you want to eat here! Best food in Little Italy!"
