Light up your world like the 4th of July

How’s everyone feeling now that they’re back to work after a long weekend? Meh? Well, let’s look at the bright side – It’s a 4 day work week! But zero for me 🙂 Sorry, had to throw that in there.

After a LONG weekend of unpacking, Adam and I decided to get some fresh air and go for a long walk.

We browsed shops, markets and eyed up some frozen yogurt spots.


$2 for 2 lbs. steal.

this will do. see you after dinner.

After walking for a little over an hour we had worked up quite the appetite. Adam grilled some steaks while I roasted some asparagus and made some parmesan risotto. Oh we fancy huh?

In true bad blogger fashion I forgot to photograph our dinner. Whomp whomp.

But somehow I didn’t forget to photograph the dessert?

On our walk to the Hudson River to watch the fireworks we stopped at Koa Koa to hit up the toppings bar we saw earlier. I decided on Dulce de Leche and Vanilla with lots of toppings and Adam chose red velvet and vanilla with a lot of hot fudge and a little bit of toppings.

Whats that in the middle you ask? Oh, that’s just a delicious Oreo chocolate cupcake. It was Adam’s idea but I happily obliged to eating half.

My boyfriend is a genius.

We were VERY lucky to be able to watch the fireworks over the New York City skyline that they set off over the Statue of Liberty. It doesn’t get much more patriotic than that. While waiting for the fireworks to start we took a couple of pictures together and watched an AMAZING sunset.

Fro-Yo, beautiful sunset and watching the fireworks over the NYC skyline… Does it get much better than that?

I didn’t think so.

This morning I got up for a 45 minute run. It was a sweaty one even though it was 7am!

Thanks Kendra for the Lulu top 😉

I finished my workout with the 10 lb slim down: CORE workout On Demand. I’m really going to have to take advantage of these On Demand workouts because I’ve decided not to belong to a gym and save the $100 a month while I’m not working. Any favorites out there?

Apparently I was still feeling a little patriotic this morning.

Breakfast was a cereal combo (fiber one 80 calorie and kashi heart to heart) with TONS of cinnamon, chia seeds and almond milk.

I’m going to finish watching my favorite morning TV show (Regis and Kelly) then I’m off to tackle my never-ending to do list… See you at lunch!

QUESTIONS: Any favorite On Demand workout videos?? How did you celebrate America’s birthday?

  9. Yummy cupcake! I love anything Oreo. I celebrated with a cookout with friends and my own ice cream at home. I didn’t have awesome froyo toppings, but I did crumble up half a graham cracker on top, success!

  10. I love the sunset and fireworks pics! I missed the fireworks because I brought myself home to get ready for work… glad to see pictures so I feel more festive haha!

  11. I have only tried one on-demand workout (I should totally start utilizing them more too!) and it was not good lol It was something like “crunchless abs” and it was so not what I was expecting. It was a lot of pelvic thrusting and overall didn’t feel like it was doing a thing for my abs! Plus it was super awkward haha

  12. want that dress in the window, want that oreo goodness. gimmegimme!

  13. Happy fourth!!!! I use the Crunch workout videos from netflix watch instantly. 🙂

  14. Those fireworks are gorgeous, you are way too cute. Love the fro-yo, I am way jealous!

  15. ahhh you had an awesome view from NJ! the best part about it is that you get to see NY in your view. all those treats look delisssh. how is your move going!?!


  16. That sunset is to die for!! I can’t believe how gorgeous that is! I agree, watching fireworks on the 4th at the Statue of Liberty is about as patriotic as it gets. 🙂
