NYC Picnic

Sunday, May 26, 2013

As of writing this (10:30am on 5/26) I am on the Greyhound Bus to New York City. My best friend lives there and her and her boyfriend are hosting a Memorial Day picnic in Central Park. The best part? She has no idea I'm coming! I don't have plans to see her until they come down to the shore where I live later this summer. But they sent me a "courtesy" invite on Facebook and when I thought about it I realized I didn't have any big plans this weekend so there's no reason I can't go. Luckily since I got the invite I have all the info about the particular area in the park they're meeting, etc. I am meeting another friend and his fiancÚ (who my best friend also knows) and surprising her, and she is going to flip out. It's about a 2.5-3 hour trip so I still have awhile to go, but I love traveling so it's fun for me.

The only concern I have, is the food situation. I'm pretty sure that her and her group of friends are pretty healthy, but a lot of time during holidays that's all thrown out the window. I'll do my best with what's provided and try not to overdo it. Also, Happy Memorial Day to all of you and I hope you're all having great weekends and getting some time off!

    Best of luck Erin! You can only do so much when you don't have control of the food options, you can only control the portions to a degree. I'm sure you'll do well.
