Hardcore and her boyfriend, The Ned, are in town, so we went out tonight and drank lots and lots on other people's tabs! That sounds like we were stealing, but it was totally kosher - we knew them. Well, I knew them. I'm not making any sense. I drank a lot.

Friday is one of my intern's last day, so today my coworker and I took him and our other intern out to a Greek restaurant for lunch. I sure was a lot luckier with the free lunches when I was an intern...but I was also a good intern who wasn't extremely annoying. Thank goodness for changing semesters.

For my mom and Princess Leah's last morning, we went to the Barking Dog for breakfast. It seems like I only go there when I'm saying goodbye to someone! So sad.

Breakfast : Mozzarella & Sundried Tomato Omlete

My mom, cousin, and I woke up with a full day in front of us. First we went to the Chelsea Flea markets bright and early at 7:30 am. After that, it was off to breakfast, then to Central Park for a carriage ride, then MAJOR shopping starting at the Rockefeller Center H&M all the way down to SoHo and back to the Upper East Side Bloomingdales (NOT the new one in SoHo, where there was a line to get IN!). We were beat, but not too tired to have a nice dinner to celebrate their last night in the city.
