Meals and Things

I thought it would be good to share some random meals I’ve taken pictures of in the last couple of weeks!

I think you guys saw this on my Sardinely Delicious post, but I really enjoyed this mish-mosh of sardines, kale, tomatoes, and crackers!

20190315_115819

Keeping up with the fish theme I am back into lox and avocado toast-I’ve been loving it with a few slices of tomato stacked between the lox and avocado. It’s just so satisfying and delicious!

This gorgeous dinner was at Joey one late Saturday Night. We had the Korean Cauliflower, Lobster Ravioli, and Molten Chocolate Cake. It was an excellent meal!

We are loving sandwiches in this household (not anything new). This particular one was made by us for dinner one night-slices of beef, white cheddar, and a mixture of horseradish and mayo all sandwiched between two slices of sourdough.

20190315_195908

This one was from the mall food court and featured turkey, chipotle mayo, tomato, avocado, and other goodness! The panini press crunch is everything!

20190316_171135

We shared this hazelnut chocolate from Godiva after the panini as our dessert…we always need dessert.

20190316_172350

We tried out a new bakery and got a few things to try! The almond cake was a bit dry, the nutella cheesecake was good, and the fruit topped parfait/cake item was delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

Burgers with tomato, peppers, and white cheddar.

20190317_185842

For our burger side we roasted some potatoes and Brussels. I don’t have a post roasting pic, but this was too pretty to not snap one!

20190317_174108

What have you guys been eating lately?

 

 

Sardinely Delicious

Get it?? Sardinely like certainly?? Okay maybe just me, but y’all know I’m a big cheese bun ๐Ÿ™‚

20190315_115819

Anywho, if you haven’t already guessed this post will about my current favorite thing to eat-sardines. My sardine journey began one day at Costco. The sweet sample lady was handing out smoked sardines on Ritz crackers…I gave it a shot and became a little obsessed.

I love the Wild Planet Wild Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil Lightly Smoked. Say that 5 times fast!ย I could eat it pretty plain with a little mayo and be perfectly content, but crackers and bread are always nice too.

I won’t lie I start loving food items because of the taste and then I really get excited when I learn that they are good for you and that’s kiiiindaa what happened here.

Sardines are great for you!

They have Omega-3s which is an anti-inflammatory and it can keep your blood pressure down!

Great source of protein especially for someone like me who could live of carbs, fruits, and veggies. I workout plenty and it’s nice to know my body is getting some good protein to help it build up the bones and muscles I work so hard to healthify.

I’m not a fan of dairy milk and even almond milk I only drink occasionally (read: with cookies). I do have cheese, but I still think about calcium intake and sardines are a great source of calcium.

All these things make them that much more delicious to me! How do you feel about sardines? Hate ’em, love ’em? Let me know in the comments!

 

Life After NY

We woke up dark and early to catch a Lyft to JFK. Speaking of JFK, what a great airport! I don’t know if it was the time or day of the week that we were there or what, but it was so mellow and there was barely a line-very unLAX.

We grabbed some breakfast and headed to our gate. We could only find Dunkin’ Donuts so I got a egg white veggie sandwich and hash browns and hubs got an everything bagel and cream cheese. I don’t think he was quite ready to let go ๐Ÿ˜€ We also got a strawberry glazed donut with sprinkles to share!

We hopped on the plane and had a really lovely 5 hour trip back to LA. I really enjoyed the snack box they gave us that had Chobani vanilla yogurt, granola, apple slices and this flat blueberry muffin thing. I loved that muffin and wish I could figure out where they sold it!

We arrived in LA at 10:50am (nothing like gaining a few hours back) and had all the intentions of going to the beach, but we were exhausted! We instead went to see if we could get movie tickets to Avengers: Endgame and get Chick-fil-a to eat at the park.

We did both and were very pleased with ourselves. After we arrived at home we unpacked, threw in laundry, showered and who knows what else before heading out to Endgame.

It was a 3 hour movie and holy cow was it the movie of all movies! If you’re an Avengers fan…you’ve probably already seen it!

We went home and grabbed some TBell for babes and In n’ Out for me. We had also planned it out and grabbed cake and a cookie from Susie Cakes!

Friday morning we woke up and headed out to our first gym session since Philly. It felt good to be in the gym! I was so hungry after this session and we came up with a breakfast plan.

Yogurt with granola and honey plus a shared PB and banana sandwich!

20190426_114720

We had reserved tickets for The Broad for when we got back from our trip and so we showered up and headed out. The Broad was incredibly cool and saw some really interesting pieces.

20190426_143319

I guess neither of us were ready to let go of NY quite yet because we headed to Langer’s for pastrami sandwiches. We shared a sandwich which was great because each half could have been one sandwich.

20190426_15285920190426_153727

This was a really great sandwich! It was meaty and vinegary from the kraut and mustard…all the good things!

Having not been to Century City in a minute we headed over to check out some stores and grab a little sweet treat from Shake Shack- their strawberry shake.

20190426_173538

After wandering around and finding a skirt we headed off to a free comedy night at a pizza shop we had also been wanting to check out #notreadytoletgoofNY

20190426_195139

We shared a pie and enjoyed some comedy! Can you tell how much we really enjoy comedy?

We picked up some cake on the way home, but by the time we got home we were too exhausted to even bother. Sleep really took the cake ๐Ÿ˜‰

Saturday morning was for all the tidying up and touch ups. Since we’re moving, we’re going to be putting our house on sale so we had some decluttering to do before pictures. We spend most of the morning doing this, but before that we had to gather supplies and give ourselves some fuel.

That fuel came in the form of Pascal Patisserie. We got the breakfast burrito (my fave) and the carne asada sandwich (B’s fave). When we got home we had some cake! We finished up our tasks and cleaned up for yet another comedy show…we have a problem…

20190427_16145020190427_161456

20190427_163412

We were planning on going out for dinner, but neither of us were feeling like it so we picked up some Panang curry from Jasmine Thai. We had our second piece of cake after and called it a night!

Sunday was our last vacay day and we made the most of it by finishing up our stuff and going grocery shopping ๐Ÿ˜€ We also skipped the gym this morning and got breakfast from Pascal. We got a bagel (there’s that NY thing popping up again) and an omelet sandwich.

We also picked up a pistachio croissant and an almond chocolate croissant. We split the pistachio one and saved the almond chocolate.

20190428_102426

We went home after this and prepped for the week and finished tidying up. I started getting hungry later into the evening and so we figured we’d better grab dinner.

Which brings me to another thing we did again was pick upย Thai food from another place called Box Thai.

20190428_174039

We got dumplings, chicken satay, and an order of pad kee mao. It was SO good! We will definitely be back here for more Thai!

We ate the almond chocolate croissant for dessert and chilled out for the rest of the night! That concludes our vacation-definitely had some vacation blues, but we were both ready to get back to some normal eating!

Happy Monday everybody!! Here’s to a great week!

What do you do after vacation when you get home?

 

 

Loving

Welcome back friends! Today I have for you another favorites post, but this one is a little longer than usual so bear with me. Since it is a bit longer I am just going to jump right in to it!

The first fave are the Guittard chocolate wafers for baking. I’ve had quite a few chocolate chips in my life and these are the best I’ve ever had! They are smooth and creamy-I loved ย them in my chocolate chip cookies and I bet they would be great in banana bread or pancakes! They are a pricy, but for the occasional switch up I think they are worth it!

20190324_170326

When my Alaffia face cream I had used for so many years got discontinued I had to find another face cream. I did a LOT of research and did not want to spend an arm and a leg, but I also didn’t want to cause any issues to my skin. After all the research I realized the only way to know if something was going to work for me was to take the leap and try it out on my own skin.

That being said, I wanted to stack the deck in my favor and I knew Kiehl’s is a brand that had been around for a LONG time. They do skin care well so I decided to get the Ultra Facial Cream with SPF 30. I thought this would be perfect since I am terrible at putting on sunscreen. This eliminates a whole step for me since the SPF is built right in! I absolutely have been loving this moisturizer. The SPF doesn’t leave my skin tone looking grey and ghastly, but sinks right in and leaves a nice little glow. I am so happy that I found this and I don’t know if I’ll ever go to anything else!

20190407_155726

I normally don’t talk about shows I’m watching on here, but I have been seriously obsessed with Queer Eye on Netflix. I could binge on this show for hours! I laugh, I cry-it’s a whole mood. I love the positive message this show sends and at the end of the day it’s a feel good series. Side note: I love all 5 of the Fab Five, but I think Jonathan Van Ness is my spirit animal!

Speaking of QE, I found the recipe for this Green Goddess dip on the show and we are beyond obsessed with it. It’s so easy, healthy, and delicious! It’s a great dip, dressing, eat it by the spoonful type things and you best believe I am doing all of the above ๐Ÿ˜€ One thing, we don’t add olive oil to ours simply because we like the consistency the Greek yogurt and avocado create. It is more dip-like, but that’s okay with us.

20190331_160416

Another item I was on the hunt for was a new face oil and I found this one from Herbivore. It’s their Orchid Youth-Preserving Facial Oil and I could write an ode about how much I love it. I’m not sure what it’s doing to preserve by youth (haven’t used it for long enough), but it is hydrating, leaves a gorgeous glow, and the floral scent in this is everything. If you’re sensitive to scents it does dissipate quickly, but I would go into Sephora and smell it to be safe!

20190312_083904

Spring has sprung and summer is almost here and in preparation for warmer months I have been on the hunt for fun summer nail colors. I found this one at TJ Maxx and have been reaching for it every time I decide to paint my nails. The color is coral carousel by Essie. It’s a coral-y peachy pinky shade and I thought it was too pretty to not talk about!

20190322_152458

One of our favorite things to do is go to comedy shows-it can be stand up, improv, a play whatever, but we love to laugh. We find them and go often, but I never really thought about mentioning it until now. The tickets are usually not super expensive and it also gets us out and exploring another part of town we may not have gone to otherwise. It’s something I recommend for a fun and different date night or going out with friends!

20190316_195019

I’m wrapping up this post, but tell me what you have been loving recently! Do you love comedy shows? Have you been watching Queer Eye?

 

 

 

NY Day 3: The Last Day

Our final day in NY we had planned to stick around Brooklyn, but instead ended up checking out Brooklyn and heading back into the city! We got to do and see some random things which made the trip come full circle for us.

We started this morning by just getting ready and heading out. If you know me, you know that I need a cup of coffee in the morning to kick things off, but I actually did okay. We made it to Ix’s for coffee, stew, and a sandwich.

We could have probably just had the soup and been fine! The soup was so incredible and the flavors in the broth were warm and savory. It was definitely the star here!

After that we headed to Prospect Park and enjoyed the sunshine and walked around. I won’t lie I think after a few days of being on foot and some lingering jet lag we were both really feeling it because we (I) got tired of the park pretty quick and we went on to another adventure.

20190424_124218

Brooklyn Heights is something we wanted to check out and it’s a beautiful little stroll by the water! After a short sit to hydrate we decided to take the trek over the Brooklyn Bridge.

20190424_133648

I love that the bridge has a place for walkers and bikers so anyone can enjoy the view and enjoy strolling into Manhattan from Brooklyn.

20190424_141526

Once there we rewarded ourselves with a hotdog from Nathan’s. Apparently we need to eat after each trek otherwise we’ll wither away ๐Ÿ˜‰

20190424_144222

With a bit more energy we went and saw the World Trade Center. I had no idea there was a Westfield mall there, but it was cool to see.

Afterwards we went to find the NY Stock Exchange and on the way I needed a snack…pretty desperately. We found a biryani truck that also sold Kati rolls. We ordered one Kati roll with lamb.

I was expecting one roll when we opened up the package, but instead we got two little ones-even better! These were so good!! It’s meat and sauce and lettuce wrapped in a paratha and made to eat on the go. We just stood there and scarfed it down, but one of my favorite items we had this trip.

After finally arriving at the NY Stock Exchange we took in all the buildings and took a few minutes to just sit on the stairs across from the stock exchange building just to take it all in.

20190424_160158

Then we headed to Di Fara’s for a slice of cheese ๐Ÿ™‚

20190424_170053

And took a short walk for taiyaki at Taiyaki NYC…this was really good, but Somi Somi will always have my heart โค๏ธ

20190424_172450

L’industrie Pizzeria was the last pizza stop of our trip and it was a pretty great one. It was a great slice, but different than a traditional NY slice. The crust was a little flaky and the cheese was lighter despite being topped off with parm before being baked. I really enjoyed it!

20190424_175021

We were both so beat that we headed home to pack up some things before heading out to our evening plans at Union Hall. We love comedy and this particular comedy show combined magic and comedy. We didn’t know it when we bought the tickets, but we were more than fine with it and enjoyed the show!

After our Chinese food in Philly I had been wanting to try some in NY and got the chance after the show. Sadly, I don’t remember the place and I wasn’t a fan of the food sooo…it all works out?

20190424_215928

By the time we made it home we were ready to crawl into bed and get some shut eye before having an early wake up time for JFK!

If you’ve been following along on our travels thank you so much! It’s been fun posting and remembering our trip ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you been to NY? What things did you enjoy-food or other?

NY Day 2: The day of 3 Pizzas

NY day 2 started the similarly to the way day 1 started-coffee and a bagel. This time with a bit of a further walk…I think the place was called Lola’s.

After showering up we headed back to the city for some more exploring! We had some plans on what we wanted to do for the day and our first stop was this NYC institution.

We bought a chocolate chip and a chocolate peanut butter chip and my oh my were these cookies incredible!

After securing our dessert we stopped by a pizza place called Made in New York Pizza.

20190423_130242

Quite possibly my favorite slices of the trip!

20190423_130247

We walked around exploring the area and found our way to Central Park. If the first day was cold and rainy, the second was sunny and pretty warm. We took off our jackets and found an ice-cream truck!

20190423_141925

We walked some more and headed to a subway station to head to another NYC institution-Katz Deli.

20190423_161549

Okay, don’t kill me for saying this, but I have to be honest. As a foodie, I am so glad we went! It’s a place I would have always wondered about if we hadn’t gone. As a foodie, I felt a bit let down because the food was just okay? Maybe I missed something!

If you’ve been to Katz let me know what you thought?

For our dessert stop we found a Black Tap that was super close and couldn’t resist. This is something that’s been on our list for YEARS and let’s just say it did not disappoint!

IMG-20190425-WA0023

We shared this monstrosity and felt like we were 10 years old again! Super giddy on sugar we walked around explored some more. We explored Chinatown and found a million little stores selling the same little touristy trinkets!

It was time for another food stop, another slice of pizza! Prince Street Pizza had a line that went quickly and a slice that was worth the wait. We devoured this slice and walked some more contemplating our evening plans.

20190423_191120

We found ourselves in Washington Square Park and sat down as it started sprinkling down some rain.

20190423_194802

We were torn between a few things and finally decided on some live music. We were not disappointed by any means! This band played R&B and hiphop and man were they good! We had so much fun singing and swaying to the music…

20190423_205336

Right next door there was an Artichoke Pizza-we honestly could have shared one slice because these slices were HUGE. I don’t think the picture does it any justice!

20190424_004146

We headed back home and slept hard!

What’s your favorite slice in NY?

 

NY Day 1: The day of 3 Bagels

Our first morning in Brooklyn, we woke up and went for a short stroll for a coffee and some breakfast. We found PLG Coffeehouse and had our own coffees and split an everything bagel with cream cheese.

20190422_093145

20190422_094233

We hurried back home to shower and head out for the day! We took the subway into Manhattan and explored Grand Central Station.

IMG-20190425-WA0043

IMG-20190425-WA0044

Immediately after we had to stop for another bagel at Ess-a-Bagel. There was a pretty hefty line, but we finally made it to the front and ordered an Everything Bagel with lox, cream cheese with chives, capers, tomatoes, and even some lettuce.

20190422_122252

20190422_125309

We knew we’d want something sweet to have post bagel so we also decided to get a black and white cookie.

The bagel was so, so good! It’s one of my favorite bagels of the trip and the cookie was so soft and cakey! I normally am not a cakey cookie person, but it worked so well here…I devoured every last bite!

As we were heading out we noticed that it was downright pouring outside and let me tell you we were not prepared, but we also did not care one bit! We love being anywhere downtown in the rain…there’s something romantic and magical about it (blame rom-coms)!

We had some sights we wanted to see in the area we were in so we started our journey and stopped a few times to take some pictures. There are so many incredible buildings and doors in NYC!

20190422_131732

Rockefeller Center was one of our first stops to look around…

20190422_132108

Our next stop was the NY Public Library and again such gorgeous doors and ceilings! I may have already been a little door obsessed and being in NY made it worse ๐Ÿ™‚

Right around from the library was Bryant Park where everything looked so green…

We walked from there to the Empire State Building

20190422_145207

No idea who this guy is!

From ESB to ANOTHER bagel shop (our 3rd)! Best Bagel and Coffee had everything seasoning on the top and bottom of the bagel…we shared another bagel with lox and all the fixings.

20190422_154856

We had stopped by a Lindt shop on our way and picked up some truffles and we had a couple for dessert post bagel.

20190422_155817

We headed out to find the High Line and found these tulips on the way. Besides doors, NYC is filled with so many tulips!

The High Line stretched on forever and we walked basically all of it, admiring the new apartments and taking in murals.

20190422_16283120190422_16395520190422_164543

IMG-20190425-WA0036

We hopped off eventually and headed to Chelsea Market where I smelled the most incredible candles (and yes, nearly cried), but sadly we had barely any space in our luggage so I couldn’t get any. A blessing and a curse.

20190422_170721

At Chelsea Market we found a taco shop that we wanted to check out anyway and got a carne asada and a chicken taco to share.

Our dessert stop was at City Cakes where we got 3 cookies. A chocolate chip walnut, white chocolate mac, and a snickerdoodle I believe? These are hefty half pound cookies!

20190422_181525

We walked off our food by heading to Times Square and walking around! We had seen some of it during the day when we arrived, but it was just incredible to be there IRL at night.

After all the bagels we wanted to have at least one slice of ‘za before our day of eating ended so we had a $1 slice…it felt wrong to not have at least one slice of pizza!

20190422_200716

We had some plans for the night-a comedy improv show at Upright Citizens Brigade in Hell’s Kitchen. We made it there and were so happy to finally sit for a bit after all the walking!

The show was great and even though we had thought about grabbing food after-our bellies were full and our feet were exhausted. We found the fastest metro route home and made it home to finally chill the heck out!

Are you guys as obsessed with doors as I am? Or with bagels? Let me know in the comments!

Arriving in NY

Sooo….I think I left off with our last day in Philly! We woke up the next morning pretty exhausted, but gathered ourselves and our things and left for the Amtrak to NY. We arrived a couple of hours later and decided to get an unlimited Metro Pass for a week. We had decided it would not be a good idea to do a rental car and would be much easier to get around through public transportation-which ended up being very true!

We got our passes and came out at Madison Square! We decided to stop and grab some pizza before heading to our AirBnB in Brooklyn. We lugged our luggage around the crowded city in hunt for our first NY slice. We found Joe’s and grabbed a few slices…nothing like eating a slice in the fresh NY air!

20190421_135427

Knowing us you know we looked up desserts and found that donut place we wanted to try-Dough-was just a little ways off. We obvi decided the right thing to do was to head on over and get a few ๐Ÿ™‚

20190421_154531

Honestly, by the time we did all this we were pretty much done carrying around our stuff and were ready to unload. We hopped on a subway station, took a little stroll, and arrived at our home for the next few days.

After taking a minute to chill and somewhat organize ourselves we headed back out to explore. B was born and lived in Brooklyn for a while in his young life so he wanted to go check out his neighborhood, school, stores, parks, and such we headed that way.

It was really sweet to see where he grew up and and hear his stories about growing up there. We took some pics to send to his fam and finally decided to find some dinner!

We found Taci’s Beyti Turkish Restaurant-YOU GUYS! Holy cow! The service was SO BAD here, but the food was delicious. I don’t even want to get into the service, but we were in tears laughing at how terrible it was.

20190421_194013

They brought us some bread which was warm and so yummy!

20190421_194123

We ordered a pastrami hummus platter to start…

20190421_194850

And their lamb kebabs for our main. We were able to comfortably share both of these and were both stuffed! I couldn’t even think of dessert…who am I?

20190421_195924

Veggies hidden behind the pita

We caught a bus back home and watched some television until we couldn’t keep our eyes open. That concludes our first night in NY! I’m hoping to get the rest of the posts scheduled soon so fingers crossed!

Have you ever been to Brooklyn? What did you think?

Long Weekend Recap

I love a good long weekend…who doesn’t? We took full advantage of this one and did (and ate quite a bit). Go ahead and settle in for what may end up being a long post!

Friday we ended up making some dinner at home. I don’t like to waste things and we had some potato buns that needed to be used up so we got some Boar’s Head pastrami and made sammies.

20190405_194506

We also tried a couple of more slices of cake from Susie Cakes-one was raspberry and the other was red velvet. I loved the red velvet whereas the hubs preferred the denser raspberry.

Saturday, we started out with a workout, breakfast snack and then a hike. The hike ended up being somewhat of a fail because we were hoping for ocean views and super blooms, but instead got very hot and a few creeks. It’s not a complete fail because any activity is good activity ๐Ÿ™‚

We made it home for showers and naps before heading out to Magicopolis for a magic show. It was from 8 to 10pm and ended up being hilarious and magical!

20190406_191823_001

After much pondering we decided to try Cheesecake Factory out again for late night dinner.

We started with their bread (noms) and Asian lettuce wraps (double noms)

20190406_230737

For our main we got the Tuscan chicken from their skinnylicious menu

20190406_232556

And we had to get dessert so we got their chocolate truffle tower cake. This was pretty fantastic. Our server said this was the “lightest” of the 3 chocolate cakes they offer. I was happy with our choice of the chocolate tower ๐Ÿ™‚

20190406_233526

Sunday morning included a workout and a fun little brunch at Claudine Kitchen and Bakeshop. This time I got a salmon sandwich and the hubs got a create your own omelette.

20190407_12373420190407_123744

We had ordered their special cookie butter coffee cake of the day, but they ended up refunding us because they were out ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Luckily for us, it was a warm day and we thought aรงaรญ bowls sounded pretty tasty. We found Ubatuba Acai at a different location that you can have as many toppings as you want!

20190407_134204

They also had a lot of different bases like chia pudding, aรงaรญ, pitaya, etc. We ended up ordering one to share and got aรงaรญ, chia pudding, and pitaya. I believe we topped it with sweet and condensed milk, honey, mangoes, and two types of granola.

It was refreshing, sweet, and oh so tasty!

We ran some errands and then headed to a couple’s massage. Hubs had gotten this Groupon a while ago and we never had a chance to use it, but nothing gets us more motivated to use something other then it being close to expiring. Anybody else?ย I have never had a massage (crazy! I know) and so I was a tad nervous, but it ended up being a really great experience.

Sunday night means burgers so that is what we had for dinner and we used up all our potato buns so yay for no waste!

After Claudine’s we had walked around and found Sweet Lady Jane Bakery so we stopped in and saw so many delicious sweets. We picked up a slice of triple berry for dessert later and ended up having it after dinner!

This caps our weekend! We definitely had a lot of cake this weekend, but recently it’s been our go-to dessert ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reading!

Philadelphia Day 4

Good morning, afternoon, night whatever it might be!

It’s Saturday afternoon here in Philly as I’m writing this and we just got done with lunch, but to catch you guys up I haven’t done too much today ๐Ÿ™‚

We started off with our usual Starbucks. I still haven’t drank the green juice by the way, but always need all the beverages!

20190420_084433

We opted to work out later in the day when hubby gets done with his conference instead of waking up early. We were needing some sleeping in-we were feeling rough!

He went to conference and I decided to catch up on reading blog posts and editing some of my own. I got restless like I tend to do and did a HIIT session in the room. I thought I would be good with using my own bodyweight for some exercises, but I think having used weights and resistance bands for so long-I definitely missed them.

Still got the heart rate up and fantastically sweaty! I cleaned up and realized I was feeling hungry. Remember that salad we ordered with our dinner last night? The spinach one? We took a couple of bites last night and brought the rest home. Excellent for me because I had a lovely nutrient dense snack.

20190420_121335

There was SO much spinach packed into this and I was so hungry I scarfed most of it down before stopping to think about taking a picture. Sorry about the half eaten mess you get to see!

Mid eating the spinach salad hubs texted asking if I would like to grab lunch! Heck yeah I would! Not gonna lie, I was mostly just ready to see him and hang out.

We went to Hershel’s Deli which is in Reading Terminal Market which is a few steps away from our hotel ๐Ÿ˜€

20190420_125749

We got a corned beef reuben and a pastrami sandwich. It came with pickles on the side and we got a diet Dr. Browns cream soda to drink. We couldn’t find seating anywhere so in order to eat and get hubby back as quickly as possible we ate in our hotel room.

That worked out pretty well since we had some jalapeรฑo kettle chips ready for sandwiches in our room.

YOU GUYS! These sandwiches were so incredible! I preferred the corned beef and hubby loved the pastrami. I could only get through my half of the corned beef so we still have a pastrami half in our fridge. I have a feeling we will be munching on that post workout ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, I have never had any Dr. Browns, but this diet cream soda was very sweet and very delicious! I need to find this on Amazon or something.

I’m going to get back to my Love It or List It on HGTV until our workout!

We ended up working out and heading back to our room for a shower and packing session. We head to NY tomorrow (Sunday) so our plan is to do some laundry here and pack up our things tonight so we can have a pleasant train ride over to the Big Apple.

We went to dinner with one of B’s coworkers and her hubby plus a couple of other friends of theirs. We went to a cool little Chinese spot that was recommended by one of the friends who lives in Philly.

I got absolutely no pictures, but the food was incredibly delicious and I enjoyed every bite-we got cumin lamb, mapo tofu (which I had been wanting to try), sesame noodles, a spicy chicken dish, and I can’t remember anything else, but there was a LOT of food!

We walked back to our hotel with everyone and then decided we needed something sweet. B and I decided to check out Mango Mango which was in the same area as the Chinese spot so we walked back!

We were seated immediately and I ordered a mango crepe cake and B ordered a mango strawberry sundae which had so many delicious things like mango and lychee. We walked back home to wrap up laundry and head to bed!

We were up pretty late so needless to say we were pretty exhausted the next morning. I’ll save our NY trip for another post! I’m hoping to get it written and up soon so bear with me till then!
