little italy + sunday funday

28 Mar

Little Italy might be a tourist trap, but I have to say it’s fun and adorable. Almost every restaurant has someone standing outside the restaurant enticing you in by telling you about the food. Delicious! Homemade! Your money back if you don’t like! I have a fur coat – believe me! (I’m not making that last one up, I swear.)

So, Saturday we chose a restaurant with an early bird special – novella.

The highlights:

mmmm, carbs.


shared an appetizer with mah date, danny!

salad with my meal!

(I know, I know – my highlights to LITTLE ITALY didn’t even include any pasta, but I wasn’t thrilled with my choice and only ate a few bites. Little Italy is definitely a place of trial and error. πŸ˜‰ Danny said the sauce on his spaghetti was awesome, though!)

Sunday Funday looked a little something like this:

Got to wear one of my [many] new finds from a really cute, CHEAP new boutique in Soho. (!!!!)

Made a pit stop at cupcake Land in Williamsburg (didn’t even have to go through peppermint forest ;))

(Red velvet so I could compare to Crumbs!!)

nothing comes close - as of yet!!

And believe it or not, with all of this, I still managed to get a good weight training/cardio work out in… πŸ˜‰

      I’ve been meaning to, as well! I always forget to grab the ingredients when I’m at the grocery store.

    I’ve only been to Little Italy once and I didnt actually get to eat there (we ate in Chinatown instead), but I’m DYING to go back! I desperately want to save up for a flight to NYC and eat my way through it πŸ˜‰

    Looks like fun! Though, I have to admit, there’s no way I would’ve made it out of there without a huge plate of pasta, haha! I’m a bit of an addict, I think πŸ˜‰
