Every time my family visits, I tell myself I’ll be a good blogger, take tons of pictures, and write a really detailed recap about our adventures. And every time I fail miserably—ha! This weekend, though, I managed to snap a few pics, so I’ll share those with you.
I ordered the “tuna” melt (aka chickpea salad) with a side of roasted sweet potatoes.
It tasted great and kept me full during our entire shopping trip, which included stops at Zara and Kate Spade.
Margaret trying on shoes—YOLO.
I took a class in college with Michele called “He Says, She Says,” so I found this iPhone cover oh so rhetorical.
Even though it was blizzarding in NYC, Margaret and I ordered our first iced coffees Americanos of the season.
Spring better be on the way!
My parents and sister Ellen arrived later that night and brought some goodies from my grandma—homemade sauce and meatballs for the win!
I cannot wait to break into this stash.
My weekend started with a Full Throttle Endurance swimming practice at Chelsea Piers and brunch at my teammate’s apartment. (Er, triathlete brunch, I guess; we ate around 9:30 a.m.—ha!) I didn’t want to be a creeper and whip out my iPhone, but the spread was impressive: waffles and whipped cream made from scratch, asparagus and goat cheese frittata, plus bacon, Italian biscotti, and sparkling apple cider. Holy moley, everything was so good! I also enjoyed hanging out with my teammates outside of swimming, biking, and running. Yes, we talked triathlons the entire time, but it was great to focus on the conversation without keeping an eye on the clock to time our rest and intervals.
Back at my apartment, my family and I watched the first half of the Syracuse basketball game (I don’t want to talk about the final result) before heading uptown to see Jersey Boys.
And get this—one of the “swing” cast members played Frankie Valli, and he totally killed it! He even had his own friends and family cheering section.
Speaking of family …
Doing what we do best—goofing off!
Next, we wandered around Chelsea Market briefly, but it was a bit difficult navigation-wise with all five of us, so we didn’t stay very long. I was also experiencing some stomach troubles and was so not in the mood to take pictures.
For dinner, we went to a Raymi, a Peruvian restaurant for dinner, and it was phenomenal! Again, not pictures due to being girl-down, but we plan to go back.
How was your weekend?
