adventures in new york


Anyone ever watch the game show Shop 'Til You Drop? I really felt like I was on this show on this week! Two friends and I rented a car to go shopping at Costco and a grocery store one evening. We had to have the car back in 3 1/2 hours, so after traffic that left just a small portion of the time you really need actually in the store for shopping. It was hilarious pushing those monster carts around like a madwoman, swerving around old ladies and people lackadaisically gazing at the yogurt - all to hunt down the real treasures like deli meats and diapers. Ah... good times. Disclaimer: I've never actually seen the aforesaid game show, but I have heard of it and did feel like dropping once I got home.

Charlotte loves being up on her feet lately...

...but hasn't quite gotten the hang of her walking toys. Don't you love the socks and shoes yet pant-less look? Me too.

It's a very cute picture. Way to use your time efficiently too - by speed shopping.

I can't even imagine...i think you will go into shock once you get out of the city and run errands like most normal people!

Another reason to be so happy about leaving the city. When you leave, you are going to look back and miss all this....we hope:)

That picture is cracking me up; thanks again for the loan of the jumperoo. She seriously loves it.

Costco leads the league in lollygaggers moping around the store aimlessly. It's the worst to get around with your Giant Cart, especially when you're on a mission to get Gatorade and candybars and that's it. Glad you mentioned it.
