Rollin’ on the river

Monday already?

I had a fun-filled weekend.

A mani/pedi Friday afternoon.

Modest Mouse at The Wellmont on Friday night.

Tubing down the Delaware River for my best friend’s birthday all day Saturday.

Cleaning out my closet, doing laundry and food shopping, cooking/prepping for the week all day Sunday.

Am I the only one that gets totally distracted by looking through old memorabilia while they clean? Like this ticket to see Fall Out Boy from 2005…I was a senior in high school!

There’s also been a lot of snacking on all the goodies I received from Melissa, my Foodie Penpal! I can’t wait to reveal what was inside on July 31!

Time for a refill on my iced coffee and to tackle the week! See you Wednesday 🙂


(Mostly) wordless weekend


My weekend began slow, but it turned out to be quite eventful!

Last night I met my best friend for dinner in Montclair. We had planned on using a Groupon at Mediterranea, but the waiters wouldn’t let us order with it in this awesome lounge area in the back of the restaurant! After a long talk with the manager, we ended up just ditching the place and going to a fancy-ish (for us) Italian restaurant called Acapello Ristorante a short walk away.

There was lots of wine involved. I got a delicious (un-pictured) pasta dish with shrimp, calamari and clams in a light tomato sauce and cookie cake with mint chocolate chip gelato for desert.

Cabernet Sauvignon...yum!

It wasn’t the healthiest meal, but I really enjoyed the food and the company. No guilt here 🙂

Today I had grocery shopping on the agenda! My friend Brooke recommended I check out a farmers’ market about 15 minutes away, so that’s where I headed.

I walked away with two huge bags of produce for $15. Definitely will be visiting the market again.

After putting away my groceries, I made a quick pre-run snack and headed to my favorite running spot – a nearby duck pond with lots of flat paths to explore.

Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread with half a banana smashed on top

perfect day for a run!

three miles done!

Now I have to force myself off the couch and over to the laundry mat.  Some chores just have to be suffered through. I’m sure twitter will keep me occupied while I’m waiting for my clothes to be cleaned, however.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday night!
