I was in the city Monday night and definitely felt the FA LA LA feeling as soon as I walked out of Penn Station.
It takes a lot to get me out the door and into the city (by train no less) on a Monday night following a holiday weekend but I wanted to go which made it fun and worth it. Isn’t that always the case? When we want to do something, we find a way, when we don’t, we find an excuse.
I was in Trader Joe’s yesterday and look what I spotted! They have GIANT CHOCOLATE BARS. And when I say giant, I mean giant. These chocolate bars, which come in both milk and dark chocolate, are over four pounds of chocolate!
Yesterday’s workout was a great one. I remembered to bring my jump rope with me to the gym so I broke up my treadmill run with jump roping segments combined with lower body strength stuff and loved every second of it.
I always leave the gym so energized after these types of workouts which is exactly why they will continue to make an appearance in my routine each week.
Remember a few weeks ago when I was all about finding coffee mugs that matched?
While I still want to get this All That Glitters coffee mug from Henri Bendel, I am glad that I didn’t part with my cute little cup and saucer set that matches my dishes because they are the perfect size for coffee from my Nespresso machine.
I was lucky to have received a Nespresso machine to test out and I have really loved sampling the Gourmesso line of coffee. I think that what I love most actually is how fast the machine brews the cups of coffee! I literally turn the thing on and it’s ready to brew me a cup which is great for the impatient must have coffee now side of my personality.
So I finished watching Gilmore Girls last night on Netflix.
Three major thoughts/questions for you:
1. I loved the episodes and so much of it was touching/deep/funny but did anyone else find long stretches of it boring?
2. How do we feel about Rory’s relationships? There was a time in my life when the whole Logan thing would have shocked/appalled/disgusted me but the older I seem to get, the more I understand. Things like that can happen and they happen more than we think.
3. Is it believable that Rory didn’t have an amazing job at the age of 32? My mother is stuck on that one.
On This Day:
I always enjoy looking back at posts but this week’s On This Day round-up really features some great posts that I have written in the past!
12/1/15: Winter Weather Workout Favorites – This list, mostly of lululemon workout apparel, still holds true for this year as a complete list of my winter weather workout favorites! I haven’t bought one new thing yet for this winter and there’s a good chance that I won’t purchase another thing until Spring.
12/1/14: Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies (with dairy free version) – I made my famous oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies just last week for Thanksgiving! So delicious and always a hit.
12/1/13: A Life Without The Scale – One of my most popular posts ever about why I gave up the scale. I have no idea what I currently weigh and I am totally fine with it.NYC, Giant Chocolate & Nespresso #thinkingoutloud #NYC #Nespresso #chocolate #traderjoes Click To Tweet

Favorite coffee flavor/variety these days?
