adventures in weekending: beachy keen fun and the little things that count
My longtime friend, Jen and I had our annual beach date. When we weren’t swimming in the semi-rough currents of the ocean and taking countless pictures of our toes in the sand, we chatted about life, love, New York rent prices and everything in between.
Beach + perfect weather = happy me.
Getting past the waves proved to be a bit of daunting task. To swim or not to swim?
We also shared the richest and best banana pudding of our lives. Magnolia
may be famous for their cupcakes, but the banana pudding is where it’s at! Click here
for the yummy recipe.
New purchases that included a polka dot top that I instantly fell in love with, a flowery boho blouse that cost only $4 and a rosy lipstick to match my rosy outlook.
The addition of kale into a turkey and cheddar sandwich gave it some much-needed texture and leafy goodness. I love the freshness of greens in sandwiches. And the simplicity of a lunchbox meal in the late afternoon.
Enormous amounts of rain unloaded itself in parts of the Northeast (and elsewhere?). It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of heavy downpours and to be able to enjoy it from the comfort of my own home on a lazy Sunday.
Last weekend was all about catching up with old friends and the minor details that make the days worthwhile. The little pleasures that must be savored, but are perhaps often overlooked. Things like inside jokes, hugs from people you love and a hilarious clip from The Soup that you can’t stop re-watching.
