5 Jul

On this lovely Tuesday, my body feels a serious need for a big bowl of these babies.

After vacation and then fourth of July, my body is aching for them. Oh wait, Fourth of July? Let’s rewind ๐Ÿ™‚

On Friday afternoon, with an early dismissal at work (just like the school days!) I thought I could get away with heading to the new beer garden at Eataly. I’ve heard it’s CRAZY to get up there, so figured I’d give it a shot – it was EARLY! Hour and a half wait for a table and the bar was at capacity. Ooph. Luckily, Eataly has tons of other stuff going on, so wine + cheese sounded like a good alternative.

one of those is beer, one is sparkling wine

my size barbie. i mean cheese

The rest of the weekend, I made sure to to find my balance in various ways… ๐Ÿ˜‰

And then there were the Manhattan fireworks from the top of a roof top on the Hudson river last night.

….Also + wine, except it’s paring yesterday was peanut butter on top of oreos, ohmygod.

sidenote: this is what your hair looks like when your boyfriend decides he wants to braid it on the subway.

I love all this fun, but today I seriously enjoyed getting back to Whole Foods (for an entire hour – is this normal?) and the kitchen way too much. I’m so excited for home apartment cooked meals and lunches this week! Since I got back so late last week I wound up eating out every day! Will definitely be sharing any goodies I come up with. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hooray for holiday weekends! And vegetables! haha. I have plans to hit up the beer garden soon too – I hope it’s not too crowded then (though I’m sure it will be! It just better be worth it). WHERE is that pizza from? It looks amazing.

    I love that yellow dress!!

    I’m the same way at whole foods – it’s like a food experience, rather than just a quick trip to the grocery store!

    WHY is eataly always packed out? i feel like i’ve gone in a bunch of times and just walked out because it’s too darn crowded. and i too have to know – where’d you get the pizza?

      no where fancy! ๐Ÿ˜‰ just a little place in Brooklyn, but their pizza is pretty darn amazing and possibly the best garlic knots, maybe, ever?

    BAHAHA. The braids seem like something my exboyfriend would do. Actually-I feel like he did once. I am in love with that yellow dress.

    OMG love your dress. Where is it from? I have heard great things about Eataly! I need to try…

      Top Shop! I actually got it for $18 when they were having a 50% off sale and they had a TON of colors. (and then I’m sneaky and still use my student ID for an extra 10% off…)

    Oh my god, that pizza! I know what you mean about needing veggies and WF. I always hit that point during vacation!
