Fab Friday Faves 6.19.15

Hello Friday!  I don't really have much exciting to say this week...  I have a sick cat, so I have been doting on him and until yesterday (when I went to the New Whitney Museum) had only left the apartment for an hour at a time.  Since Saturday.  So not me!  Josh actually ended up not being able to come back from Mass until Monday so I had to make the emergency middle of the night vet trip by myself in an Uber!  Too fun.  It's times like this when I wish I had some here that I could just call to come over to help me and to keep me company.   I also have been pretty stressed and tired and not feeling well so even though I had the opportunity to catch up on some blogging and other stuff, I really didn't.  You know when you just get in a funk?  Hopefully this week coming up is better, and I hope you all have a great one too! 

 1.  I found this great place called Smith and Chang when I was out for a (pre-emergency vet trip) walk Saturday afternoon.  There was a great Flea Market/festival in Hamilton Park, right behind the mall and on my way over I stumbled on this gem.  It is the cutest place, set up like a vintage General Store with local products, trinkets and antiques for sale.  They serve all the coffees of a normal coffee shop plus Jersey city made pastries and desserts.  They also have a super friendly staff and clientele which is hard to find here.  Amazing!  I actually went back on Wednesday as well, just to get out.

2.  Josh sent me this adorable flower arrangement before he got back on Monday.  He knew I needed something to cheer me up and it worked and made me smile.

3.  I love a lobster roll more than any food on the planet.  Well lobster in general really!  Monday was National Lobster Roll Day so when Josh got home we walked over to the new Luke's Lobster location in Hoboken to celebrate.  Delicious!

4. Wednesday was Birchbox day, one of my favorite days of the month.  I was lucky enough to get products from some of my favorite brands in the world but nothing I had tried before!

5. I had been eyeing up Steve's Ice Cream for months now at our local grocery store, and with our time here coming to an end I thought I better finally give it a try.  I don't actually LOVE hard ice cream, so I got a flavor I knew that Josh would like and eat, but he is lucky he got any haha.  So good!  The ice cream is made in Brooklyn by a small local company which I love.  Their flavors include Cold Brewed Cinnamon Coffee, Coconut Key Lime, Southern Banana Pudding and many others.  If you see this in a store, or if you are over in Brooklyn and see their store, be sure to give it a try!
