Morning! And happy Wednesday to you all! My recap this week was from last Friday, featuring all my eats from a fun day in NYC with my sister! Our morning started at 3:00 a.m. Yes, 3:00 a.m. We got up at such an ungodly hour in order to make our way to Rockefeller Plaza to see One Direction at the Today Show’s summer concert series. Luckily I brought a lovely mix of overnight oats in my bag to eat! This mix was 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats, 1 ripe banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 3/4 cup of almond milk, and topped with ginger cashew granola and peanut butter in the morning. Taste.
The show started at 7:00, but the website for the event told us to be there by 6:00 in order to get into the plaza…lies. My sister and I arrived about 5:45 and found ourselves in this crazy line wrapping a couple of blocks around the plaza.
After waiting maybe a half an hour a police officer came around with a big megaphone informing us that no one else would be getting in to see the concert because they were already over capacity (later we found out over 18,000 people attended!). At that point tons of people started bailing out of line, so my sister and I thought we’d stick it out a bit longer to see if we would have any luck. We didn’t. However, we did overhear some other ladies in line talking about the free The Wanted concert in Central Park as a part of the Good Morning America summer concert series, so we thought we would take a chance and run up to Central Park and see if we could get into that concert…And we did!
I could not believe how close we were to the stage! It was such a fun and upbeat set of songs that the band played, we had a wonderful time. So glad we ditched the first line to get into this concert with no wait!
After the concert we hung out a little longer in the park and had some snacks. My favorite snack combo lately has been pistachios and raisins, yum!
Then we did a little shopping in the city and stopped for Starbucks. A soy chai for me, close but no cigar on the spelling of my name.
Soon after we stopped for lunch at Lenny’s. Still one of my favorite vegetarian sandwiches around (which I need to try and recreate at home)!
Once we got back home we sipped some mocktail strawberry daiquiris, yum!
And for dinner we had leftovers, I made a nacho bowl! It was a delicious mix of tortilla chips, black beans, roasted broccoli, green chiles, cilantro and salsa. Wish I had some avocado to top it off!
Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday! Make sure to stop on by Jenn’s blog to see where this WIAW party started.
