We were certainly ready for elevensies by the time we finished observing New York. Happily, we had plans to meet Justin's friend Anthony for lunch at Elmo's in Chelsea.
|Looks meh, but was actually delicious - apple walnut French toast. Mmmm.|
|I added an egg so it was a healthy meal choice. :)|
We hopped in a cab as we tried to figure out what to do next. Justin recalled fondly a cake at the Plaza, so we jumped out there to seek it out.
Did you know about the food court under the Plaza? I didn't!
"Your parents would love this place," Jason commented. I completely agree.
|Chocolate and vanilla crepe cakes. Dozens of crepes with cream in between each layer. No wonder Justin's a fan!|
Cake in hand, though not in stomach yet, we decided to check out the windows along 5th Avenue. It was frigid and crowded and all kinds of fun.
|I really liked the combination of greenery with white lights above windows.|
|Made with pearls!|
|With remarkably-beaded lions!|
|Beautiful woodcut scenes at Tiffany's!|
|Justin feigning interest in looking at more windows!|
|Inspiration for how to decorate my music room! (Snow, chandeliers, and wine glasses strewn about = fashion!)|
|Look! China! I totally missed the floating spiky cloud princess when we were at the wall, though.|
From there, a quick dinner and the terrific Spring Awakening. Whoo!
