Little Moments - May 2014

I took these photos on the bus after a Costco trip because I want to remember what an ordeal it is here in the city. I take the bus uptown, shop, and then walk a few blocks with all of my groceries to catch the bus back home. It's a pain. It's tiring. And it shouldn't be this hard.
Enter Google Shopping Express! I got my first six months free and all I had to do was download the app, place my order, and ta-da!!! My groceries were delivered to my door day of. They don't deliver produce though...that's where Instacart comes in. These two services changed city living for me. No more walks to the bus stop with groceries in tow. INCREDIBLE!!!
Speaking of shopping, after Christmas I swore off shopping for clothes. I was over commercialism and just kind of sick of it. I went four months without making a purchase and it felt good. Not that I'm a big shopper, I'm not. I don't even enjoy it all that much. But in New York your walk anywhere is accompanied by so many store windows, sometimes it's hard to keep away. I saw these darling booties on sale for $50 at Anthropologie and I was sold. I'm no fool. I bought them in a heartbeat. And just like that, my four month, self-inflicted shopping fast was over. So sorry, Scotty.
Our news station did a story on this little boy whose wheelchair got stolen. I covered the follow up when someone donated a new chair. He was so outgoing and fun and I felt honored to meet him. 
Kels and I hit up Madison Square Eats and then munched on our goodies at this pretty spot. 
Sprinkles opened up an ice cream shop right next to their cupcake store on Lexington. It's divine. 
The good weather brought so many outdoor meals. I grabbed dinner in Midtown and then met Scott right outside his office on Park Avenue. It was a beautiful night. 
Twinning with the one and only Kathryn Hauser! I look up to her so! 
Another day, another story. At a Bridgeport school celebrating a group who had just returned from singing for President Obama. 
A fantastic Girls' Night Out with these lovely ladies! We all met after work, got manicures, and then put ourselves in a chocolate coma at Max Brenner. The night couldn't get better when...
we stumbled upon this scene in the Union Square subway. This creepy subway artist had us all laughing and quickly backing up. We didn't know what to think. 
A midweek meet-up in SoHo with Jules. 

Crews had just completed a lot of construction near One World Trade. I had to go to our old neighborhood and check it out. I couldn't believe that you can now stand right next to it after the area was blocked off for more than a decade. 

Scenes from our bike ride in Brooklyn. The Empire State Building peeking through the Manhattan Bridge. 

People catching rays wherever they can. I had a good laugh at this scene while on a run. 

Metro-North had their fair share of problems this year. The latest was a malfunction on the bridge causing thousands of commuters to get stranded at the South Norwalk station on a Friday evening. I was working nightside and did live hits throughout the whole ordeal. I became so familiar with Metro-North as a passenger and also as a reporter - I felt like a lived on those trains.
