Blogging from JFK!

So... I'm a bit internet obsessed, I guess you could call it- I'm sitting here at JFK, on my Macbook and realized they have wireless! $4.95 on my debit later, and I'm blogging from the airport!

The ride went well- we picked up Danielle and stopped at Starbucks on the way. I was in the mood for a cool drink because the humidity was already getting to me- so I had them blend my grande soy latte with ice, frappuccino-style!

Then were off on the road, and even though we made a couple stops along the way, we made great time! Danielle and I ate our packed lunches around noon- I had my edamame corn salad with bulgar and a nectarine, and had some soy crisps a bit later.

Finally, we met up with Carolyn and her Mom in Chappaqua, NY! After some debating, we decided on going to a local italian deli for an early dinner, and then going for dessert at the famous Jean Jacques in Pleasantville!
The owner of the deli made me his vegetarian italian special- a wrap with eggplant, mozzarella and roasted red peppers. It was absolutely delicous!

Jean Jacques was adorable! We were all stuffed from our huge wraps, but couldn't resist their gorgeous pastries and little scrumptious cakes... after much deciding, we chose a chocolate caramel mousse cake to share! It was to die for. I definately ate a third of the miniature cake, if not more!

After another stop at Starbucks before we left (I didn't get anything this time), we set off for JFK!
We got through security amazingly fast, and we're actually a couple hours early! Our flight leaves at 9:20, and we're all settled at our Gate, ready to set off for Italia!
I stopped for some fruit and water at Panini express, and had a big green apple along with 1/2 a carrot cake clif bar for a snack to hold me unti we're on the plane.

I'm satisfied for now, and just starting to get really excited- less than two hours and we're in the air!!
