spring preview

21 Mar

Saturday wasn’t as warm as Friday (74!!!!!), but it was still warm enough to enjoy some NYC scenery. I live fairly close the South Street Sea Port and as it gets warmer I know it’s going to be a frequent to-do. (You can carry your drinks around anywhere outside… I mean… it’s very pretty…) I was feeling super lazy when it was time to go and didn’t want to part with my yoga clothes and new lulu headband. I said goodbye to the headband… but just couldn’t find it in me to part with the cropped pants, sneakers, and NorthFace. Oops?

Danny & I soaked up the scenery, fresh air, browsed through the inside mall, and then ate lunch OUTSIDEEEEEEE (what, what!!) A bit chilly due to the cropped pants, but anything in the name of eating outside, even if it means sitting Indian style and using your purse as a blanket.


We decided to eat at the Seaport Cafe & I got the veggie wrap (surprise, surprise?).

You can just pretend those onion rings are a side salad, right?

smileeeee, date - we on a boat

The rest of the day was spent being fairly lazy as we had an open bar birthday to prep for later on that night.


Sunday night, Danny & I used another ScoutMob 50% off coupon. (!!!!!!!) These things are amazing when it’s only two people. $20 off and 2-for-1 beer happy hour on a Sunday?! I like you, Nolita House, I like you a lot.

Nolita House is school dayzzz themed. Tater tots, mac & cheese, and chalkboards – yes please.

sunday special: mac and cheese tasting. holy moly!

We started with some guacamole & salsa. Do kids get served guacamole in school these days? This I wonder

school day doillies

I tried SO HARD not to get the mac & cheese, however I was tricked because it came with a side salad and that is just dreamy. Let’s just say I will soon be a professional at the mac and cheese of NYC and I’m neither proud nor embarrassed.


This morning I was up @ 6:15 for my usual run, however my acid reflux is kickin’ in hardcore because I was a slacker with filling my prescription and skipped the past two days. I decided a run wouldn’t be best for me as I’m already coughing like crazy.

I did need to call in these replacements this afternoon due to my lack of endorphins.

Got my prescription and with some yoga on the schedule tonight I’m hopeful I’ll be back on track tomorrow morning! 😀

PS, in case you missed it – my sick bff did awesome at her race. Hope she gets better soon from BRONCHITIS so I am not condoning this behavior! xoxo

      THANKS! It’s gorgeous but definitely has tourist prices. It will be so much fun in the summer, though!

    Looks like a very fun day….I would order mac & cheese AND tater tots in a heart beat=) If you liked the whoopie pie I’d try a cake pop! I wasn’t a very big fan of the whoopie pie and thought the cake pop, I had a tiramisu, was much more moist and flavorful=)

      I thought the whoopie was delish!! I wasn’t sure of the flavors of the cake pops – definitely good to know 😉
