Scenes From The Weekend


The Tofu Buff Bowl at Noodles & Co.

A chocolate caramel apple from Kilwin’s is as good, if not better, than the chocolate covered apples from Disney World.

When there’s so much good chocolate to go around, you don’t limit yourself to just one dessert.

The Kilwin’s fudge guy talked me in to the just made, still warm, sea salt caramel fudge.


Uh huh. SO delicious. Even after my chocolate caramel apple. And oh, after I tasted this chocolate fudge frosted brownie from Torta Fina.


Yes, I satisfied my sweet tooth just fine thank you.

Saturday’s run by the beach made me love my Mizuno Wave Enigma 5’s even more than before. They took a long time to break in but now, with each run, I am happier and happier with them.

I packed my post run cooler with watermelon and the mandatory post-run oats in a jar. After a run at the beach, one must refuel and hydrate immediately. And put on a light weight sweatshirt because I get cold from sweating in the heat.

I saw this lunch bag at Denny’s (a children’s store here in New York) and I sort of want it for myself. It’s insulated and really roomy too!

I still can’t get my grocery shopping down to a science and that has to change. I am tired of going to Trader Joe’s every other day although maybe it has something to do with needing watermelon.


Instead of going to the beach yesterday, I chose some me-time in the form of working in the morning and hitting the mall in the afternoon which meant window shopping while enjoying a Red Mango parfait.

I needed clothes (as usual, it’s a never ending hunt) but found none so I went with some makeup stuff instead.


And now it’s Monday which I am not exactly in the mood for but apparently I have no choice. Sometimes I really miss being a kid. As if the cupcake lunch box wasn’t evidence enough of that.

Do you remember your lunchbox from when you were a kid? Which cartoon was on it? Mine was Cabbage Patch Kids!

Favorite kind of fudge?

What’s your favorite way to spend time by yourself?

      OMG your girls need the backpacks and lunch bags from Denny’s this year. so so cute! And what’s with our Mizuno’s, isn’t it crazy how long they took to break in and now feel great?! Whatever the reason, I am really glad.

    I haven’t thought about my lunchboxes in forever. I would imagine that I likely had a Power Rangers one and a Scooby Doo one. Need to ask my mom. I like the Noodles and Co Buff Bowls! Except that I wish the Bangkok curry one had cabbage in it, like the regular noodles do. Sad face.

      So many nice lunch boxes out right now, especially over the last three years or so. Many more options for us adults, probably because people are trying to eat healthier/pack lunch for work.

    Loving that lunch box! I had a pink and purple one in elementary/middle school that I lost at camp eventually, then started using the ones my parents had in the “lunch box cabinet” in our house when I was in law school to tote snacks around, meaning one from LL Bean that’s navy and red and 30 years old, and a big snazzy one from a Ritz Carlton in Florida 🙂

    I need to find a Kilwin’s. Can’t believe I’ve never heard of them, but I guess not as popular in my area of New England. I keep seeing Sarah post photos of ice cream and drooling!

    Best kind of fudge is peanut butter fudge! I have a serious craving which I’m hoping to fix this weekend 🙂 Best way to spend time alone is manicure/pedicure or a massage. Although I love love love shopping, I tend to spend too much money if left alone for an extended period of time 🙂

    It’s nice to see that Red Mango made an appearance. I used to bet on seeing it weekly. What’s been going on? Oh wait I know.. you’ve been eating all that chocolate. Which um.. looks delicious!!!

    Strawberry Shortcake lunch box! My favourite way to be alone is to run (duh), sit in the sun by the water on a chair and drink Corona and either listen to music or read a book. Ahhhh. Bliss.

    Love the cupcake lunchbox! And getting grocery shopping down is one of my ultimate goals. I usually only try to go once a week to make sure I stay within the budget I have for me and my boyfriend, but by the time Friday night rolls around it feels like we have no food! I am still trying to figure out how much he eats. It’s frustrating because he goes out to lunch more often than I do, but won’t tell me weeks he plans on packing or eating at home. Ugh!

    Have I ever told you how jealous I am that you can enjoy all the desserts while you’re out and about? Dratted allergies 😡 And if you didn’t buy that lunchbox, you definitely should have! I actually can’t remember what was on mine as a little kid… but I’m thinking it was probably My Little Ponies <3

    A HUGE yes to all of the chocolate. And that ice-cream… can never get that image out of my head because now I want some multi layered froyo!
    As a kid I LOVED cabbage patch kids. I thought they smelled like the bomb <3.
    When I am alone I like to read and walk outside. Honestly being introverted, I enjoy doing anything by myself. However there are a great deal of things that are much more fun when you have others to enjoy it with as well.

    You can’t NOT try the freshly made fudge at Kilwins! I swear they make the best everything. It hit the spot on Friday night and I’m going again tomorrow ha. No shame. But you already knew that. I run and then I eat a ton of ice cream. #balance

    My lunch box wasn’t anything special. I think it was just purple. And I don’t think I have ever had a funky flavored fudge. I need to find some!
