sometimes I don’t know how living in New York can get any better, but it always surprises me. Last week I read about the new East River Ferry that goes from Manhattan to Brooklyn & Governor’s Island.

Did I mention it’s free until the end of the month?

Oh, and that there was free iced coffee…?

Need I say more?

always in workout gear for perfect photo ops

After our ferry excursion on Saturday, Danny & I did a quick 1-2 mile run in the lovely 85 degree heat (seriously, I love it.) We worked up quite the appetite and headed to Dumont to enjoy the back garden and beautiful weather.

Mac and Cheese was totally devoured.

Side note: our waitress sucked. That is all.

After wards, in the theme of free concerts, we found another! Crest Fest – we caught the last band and $3 beers.

Sunday was all about sweet, sweet relaxing. Danny and I used the whole wheat pizza dough I got from Fresh Direct and made ourselves some personal pizzas!

danny's, mine

We were attempting to recreate the technique of one of our favorites of Ocean City, NJ – Mac & Manco’s.

oops, definitely a deep dish! 😉

The rest of the day was spent in the park for some good ol’ ladder ball, lacrosse catches, and laughing at hipsters trying to play kickball. It’s all I need in life.

Speaking of sweet? I started my week off by meeting Susan for $4 margaritas & dinner at Blockheads followed by a cupcake at Crumbs for her birthday (Happy birthday again, Susan!!! Thanks for spending your first day of 27 with me! :D)

So of course tonight, I had a [sweet] date with some cardio.

don't think those calories are accurate

+ 15 mins (3.5 miles) on the bike. (and yes, I took that screen shot WHILE on the bike. I get bored.) Threw in a ton of my best friends, the squat, as well. Bring it, Bagel Wednesday. 😉
