A Few Recent Meals + Magnolia Bakery Cupcake

magnolia bakery chocolate cupcake

Yesterday, I was all excited to report that it was already Tuesday. And now today, while I’m thrilled it’s already Wednesday, it almost snuck up on me in some ways. Like, oh, I need to post about food today? Ok, shoot, let me pull something together. I was in the city at Bloomingdale’s on July […]

Catching Up + Forty Carrots + Fashion + The Plaza

forty carrots frozen yogurt

  The days are totally slipping away from me! Ugh. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that there’s really nothing I can do about it. Some weeks I have more time to think about and write posts and some weeks, I just don’t. I feel like I said this last week too. Ah well. Just […]

Busy June Weekend Recap

vegetable pizza

    June weekends are always busy weekends. It started Friday night with pizza from Stella’s. My son had an all day carnival type thing outside at school as a party celebration for the 8th graders. He was full of sun and clearly tired when I picked him up from school. After forcing him immediately into […]

Thinking Out Loud 4.7.16

frozen yogurt

  I think it’s great that Amanda (our weekly Thinking Out Loud host) has been enjoying herself in Hawaii but if you want my opinion, it’s time for her to come home already. My days are not the same without talking to her all day long! Saturday night following the 10k race, I had to […]

weekend sentence per picture #3

fruit flavored Dasani water

  I snacked on watermelon while food shopping at Trader Joe’s. I saw these cute cake pans in Target which made me want to make a layer cake or rainbow cookies but I didn’t buy the cake pans so I won’t be making anything. It doesn’t take much to convince me to have dinner at The […]

Weekend Thought Per Picture

ice cream sundae

  Friday’s roses. All for me. Dessert appetizers: The chocolate-covered strawberry was mine but I snagged some of the fudge from the top of the fudge brownie too 🙂 I will admit my frozen yogurt creation is not the one on the right. I want this collapsible water bottle. My son shared his onion rings with […]

Frozen Treat of a Weekend

Berry Good Yogurt Cafe

Friday night sushi for dinner is the best way to start the weekend. Especially when it’s all you can eat so you keep ordering more. And more. My son talked me into Cold Stone after dinner even though I was extremely full and didn’t want to overdo it the night before my long run. I […]

Islanders Won & Other Weekend Stuff

food shopping

  It’s a real good thing that I type and you read rather than I talk and you listen because I have no voice left after yesterday’s Islanders game. It was a crazy intense, loud game (hence the no voice thing) that ended with an Islanders win (2-1) in overtime! I didn’t even play the game and […]

What I Ate Wednesday Fun

nisen sushi

  You are going to be so proud of my will power. I was in Whole Foods on Monday shopping for Rosh Hashanah and completely held myself together when passing the food bar. The roasted vegetables display was bountiful and beautiful BUT I was able to resist and my wallet was super thankful. I have even held […]

A Mile In My Shoes

It’s fun sometimes for me to look back at old blog posts to read what I was doing and saying a year ago. Like a year ago today I recapped the walk to Fire Island. The onion rings were totally worth the walk to Surf’s Out on Fire Island. Possibly the best onion rings ever in my life. […]

Thinking Out Loud – Crumbs vs. Frozen Yogurt

lulu rain jacket

  Thinking Out Loud posts are a lot like what our phone conversations would sound like if we were actually speaking instead of me writing and you reading. Although, I rarely talk on the phone since I prefer to text and I never really talk about running with my friends because they don’t run but  when I am […]

Catching Up With A Thought Per Picture

prime happy hour

  Oh hi. Let’s catch up with a thought per picture again, okay? My friends and I realized Friday night during a beautiful evening happy hour at Prime that we take living on an island for granted. For your information, my idea of happy hour involves water spiked with a lemon wedge, especially when running long the […]
