    That seems like a pretty cool day!! I can’t imagine how all that snow must be for you, with being from FL and all. Have fun with it! 🙂
    Your apple pie looks awesome! I love cheesecake but that pie.. oh yum.

    Wow, I know how miserable wet, cold shoes can be–smart purchase with the rain boots! The plaid is pretty awesome, no lie.

    That was cute – except they called your blog “IW of a College Student!” Oh well – what an amazing time you’re having!

    I know you’re a FL girl, but I’m glad you got to experience some good ol’ snow….it does a body good! AND it gives you reason to purchase super cute boots and eat scrumptious soup! Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Oh man, I measured a little while ago and it was 19 inches and counting. My bf lives and works in NYC and said the slushy mess was awful. Very cute rain boots, so necessary. I’m always jealous of my sisters super cute Burberry ones.

    I’ve never had Jr’s cheesecake, but I had their fish once and it was awful. I guess never get a protein from a place known for their dessert!

    Glad you got to enjoy some extra time in NYC even if it was unplanned. Those boots are super cute. NY women are always so fashionable. 🙂
    Hope you get home someday…

    Whenever I wear my rain boots, people comment on them, and I always say, best purchase I EVER made! Seriously! I never realized how much of a necessity they are until I had them. Yours are SUPER cute.

    My goodness that snow is CRAZY! Glad to hear that you were still able to get out and about in NYC though – LOVE those boots!

    Enjoy the rest of your time in the city! If you’re looking for a great breakfast, with entertainment to boot, check out Ellen’s Stardust Diner. It’s one of my personal faves and I go everytime I’m in NYC. 🙂

    I really like that NYC labels its calories — even though I feel informed enough to make healthy decisions, there are always surprises (even with soup sometimes!) so it’s nice to have more information to help make good choices.

    I LOVE that NYC requires calorie counts on their menu. I wish it was a nationwide law! And your boots are so cute!

    Looks like you’re having fun in NYC! That’s just a hop, skip and a jump from my little town in NJ so I visit all the time. 🙂 Your boots are adorable!

    Really sucks about the weather, but in a way, it’s neat you get to extend your stay in NYC and explore the city more. I adore your rain boots…can’t believe they’re only $25!

    NY Cheesecake is delicious! I’ve had Junior’s before very tasty! But the best I’ve had there is at Carnegie Deli! Soo good!

    Did you actually get to meet Kelly Ripa? It doesn’t look like she interacted with the bloggers at all.

    You guys definitely made the most out of your situation, looks like a blast!
    Love the boots, mine are one of the best investments ever made too! They are so easy to slip on to walk the dog when it’s cold and rainy!

    The rain boots is a new trick I just learned after living in Wisconsin for 18 years. Perfect for a college student on the slushy days of Wisconsin winters and the fall and spring showers1

    Wow I can’t believe that’s all the snow NYC got! I’m 30 min outside of the city in NJ and we got 10 inches! Yikes!

    Haha, kind of funny that they called your blog “the inner workings of a college student”, lol. Hope you’re having fun in the best city ever!

    I LOVE your blog ( i read it multiple times a day!) and i just wanted to say that i am SO jealous of the fact that you are stuck in NYC right now! I’ve never been. I’m going in June, and being stuck there would pretty much be my dream! haha

    p.s. LOVE the boots!

    It’s snowed here THREE times in the past week and a half. It’s actually been 6 years since it snowed like this. It was coming down like crazy this morning. Have fun exploring!

    They have to calorie count EVERYTHING? That must be so hard for smaller home-made businesses :s eek!
    I’m glad you made the best of a bad situation by exploring the ciity more 🙂 who says snow has to ruin the fun!?

    Being that I am from Seattle one would think that I own many pairs of boots. Nope not one – I am very jealous of your boots. They are super cute!

    I am with you on this whole “stuck in the big city thing!” Definitely torn between being excited about being here and feeling bad about missing work! Enjoy the rest of your extended snow day!

    way to put a positive/fun day on a wet situation (pun intended). Great eats!

    Will you be back on Orlando next week? I’ll be there for work and thought we might be able to meet for a run on Wednesday? Of course that probably depends on where you work!

    I would really love a piece of that cheesecake your mom ordered! And that apple pie! The flaky crust alone!
    If you get a chance, John’s Pizza is my favorite in NYC. They make a delicious thin crust pizza and offer whole wheat dough if you’d like.

    Buckwheat chocolate, eh? Interesting…

    Love your rain boots! Where are they from? I love that you are trying out all of these places near my work that I’ve never been to. Now I know what is next on my list to try!

    Good idea about the boots! I bought a pair this year and I don’t know why I waited so long to buy some! Quesion for you: where did you get that vest you were wearing?!?!? It looks so cute!

    cute boots!
    im not a big cheesecake fan either but they said new yorks is the best…

    Glad you enjoyed NYC, even in the snow! Snow storms are fun in the city because there is still so much to do. My office was closed but instead of venturing out, I just relaxed and enjoyed my unexpected day off 🙂

    I don’t eat at fast food or chain places often, but the calorie counts don’t really affect my choices when I do. I think for other people who be more into the calorie counting method it could be beneficial.

    I follow your blog, and as a Southerner who has lived in New York a long time, appreciate your insight on my new home town. I am glad you still got to be out and about, and sample the city, despite the snow.

    Happy to see you all made the best of your unplanned extended stay in NYC!! It was kind of gross out yesterday, but it didn’t seem to stop you – I on the other hand hibernated in my apartment as much as possible after stepping in a huge slush puddle :/

    AHHHHH BURR!! That picture needs some hot soup, warm bread and a hot tea STAT!!!

    That was so nice of you to treat your mom. Sometimes the snow in the city is so beautiful, but such a nuisance. The rain boots are a must. I wear mine all the time in the snow!

    Your mom should also check out Roxy’s Diner in Times Square for amazing cheesecake. 🙂

    Looks like you had another great day, aside from the snow (wet snow is NOT fun!). I love that soup place! I think more restaurants should take a cue from that and post the nutritional info for their goods out in the open. Now you made me want to make some crusty bread for a soup night one of these nights … mmm!

    Check luggage prices – it might be cheaper to mail your stuff back. One price boxes hold a lot!

    Cute boots! I really need some cute snow/rain proof boots.
    Also, calorie counts are only required in chain restaurants. So most restaurants in nyc don’t post calories because they aren’t chains.

    You went to Juniors and didn’t try the cheesecake!? It’s supposedly the best ever. I hope you’re Mom enjoyed it 🙂

    February 12, 2010

    How pathetic is it that I got really excited that I could see my office in the background of your second picture?!? hahaha

    Anyway, wow, I’m sorry you had to endure the snow! However, it looks like you fared just fine! Glad you’re enjoying NYC.

    A good way to ensure a great hotel gym is to check out http://www.HotelGymReview.com before you leave for your next trip. Also be sure to write reviews about the facility. We’re a new website so we really need people to write reviews.
