My Favorite Things... December 18th

So I'm going to be definitely moving next month... Probably to Queens, although we're still not sure. But in the meantime, I am visiting my favorite Manhattan establishments...

Wild Ginger with my usual favorites (spring rolls, shumai, and pineapple fried rice):

Mozzarella sticks and a "high c" smoothie at Good Stuff Diner:

And my favorite, banana bread french toast at Sacred Chow:

And incase you're wondering, that's blueberry sauce on it-- incredibly delicious!

We also got some holiday treats (from Figi's) too!

Red velvet petit fours and it came with a sample of free fudge (which surprisingly wasn't very good!).

Here are some recent pics of Peanut that I wanted to share too... starting with bath tub play! lol

On my bed...

And these adorable close-ups!

What are some of your favorite things (for the holidays or anytime of year)?

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! I'll be Upstate visiting relatives, but I'll update when I get back!

My favorites are definitely of the sushi variety! I have this conveyor-belt sushi place I go to all the time with sushi friends - new friends and love taking people there, so fun! Went tonight actually!

That's exciting *(?!) about moving next month! Yes, you must hit up all your faves before then!!

Other favorites of mine include WHole Foods - love it! And... holidays in general, a fav!!

Wow, such yummy eats!

Peanut is too cute! I feel like I always have more things to say in response to the food you post, but then I see adorable Peanut & all my thoughts fly out of my head so I can coo about Peanut. Haha!

Peanut is so cute!!
Hi this is my first time on your blog. Let me say, you're such a beautiful girl! I hope that you've completely overcome your anorexia. I know far too many of my close friends suffering that.

As for Christmas, my favourite thing is spending time with family, cooking and opening presents!

Merry Christmas, and strength to you!
