Saved by the bell, or better yet a clock as I almost realized I didn’t blog today. Blame it on Soho, where I spent most of my day looking and shopping for clothes. I have to admit, I haven’t been shopping there in a really long time. So going in almost every store from Broadway-Laffette-Wooster Street was essential. I also ended up with two pairs of new shoes, a dress, a shirt, and a Lulu lemon workout outfit. Lucky? Yes. The later was curtsy of Mauro, who impulsively rushed to the cashier after I tried on the workout gear saying that “I needed it”. Now I feel even more obligated to stick to my summer workout/diet plan!

So after spending almost all of my paycheck (I need an economics class), I decided to have a very low key lunch, at Subway. Quite the opposite end of the spectrum when compared to Nello but while Mauro sat in mortification, I enjoyed a salad. Reminiscing over my high school days where most of my “free periods”were spent.

Finally after shopping from 10am-6pm, and walking all over the place, we mutually agreed to call it a day, and head back to my apartment.
