a white morning

So What - Miles Davis

What a great morning! Thankfully, when I woke up, it wasn't snowing like it currently is, blowing in gusts that threaten to shut me up in my house for the foreseeable future. As planned, I woke up at around 8:00 this morning so that my dad and I could drive into the city for breakfast and do a little bit of walking around. It turns out that our usual breakfast spot, The Grey Dog, was closed! But fear not, our backup plan was just as splendid, and I got some awesome shots of the food.

Where exactly did we go? With my quick-thinking mind (oh yeah, props to me), I offered up the brilliant idea of going to the Clinton Street Baking Company, which I'd heard has some of the best pancakes in NYC. And it surely did not disappoint.

Unfortunately, I've been sticking to a [mainly] gluten-free diet recently, so I opted for an "omelette du fromage et jambon". That's a ham and cheese omelette. Which, might I point out, was bigger than my entire face. Even while folded up in that manner that omelettes tend to be folded. Instead, my dad got the pancakes. But, HOW COULD ANY HUMAN BEING RESIST THE TEMPTATION OF THOSE DELECTABLE BLUEBERRY PANCAKES!? So, I had to surrender.

Fortunately, it didn't start snowing until later in the morning, and I got the chance to walk down to Washington Square Park for some photo ops.

It was FREEZING, so I wore my heavy off-white North Face jacket, cherry red Dr. Martens, high socks, and a black sequined beret that I actually got at this holiday market thing that they have going on in Union Square by the Greenmarket.

Thank goodness I've got nowhere to be this afternoon. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
