RA ah ah ah ah

I have been a HORRIBLE blogger lately. Forgive me? I have a feeling that will change next week when I’m jobless and bored though. Next thing you know you will be overloaded with 3 posts a day from me and you will wish I was still a horrible blogger 😉

Since we last talked (read?) I was heading out with my girlfriends for one last night out before my move. We started out at RA Sushi which happens to be my favorite sushi of all time! They have exciting rolls such as:

Viva Las Vegas

Crazy Monkey Roll

Mango Lobster Roll

Viva Las Vegas (to die for)

RA is a chain sushi restaurant so if you have one near you definitely check it out… They also have the best fried ice cream but alcohol and dessert usually don’t go together for me so I had to pass!


Two things I learned. 1.) My friends are like really really pretty. 2.) Never buy another dress. Rent the Runway never disappoints.

Obsessed with the dress I can’t afford.

The next day I spent recovering with my family… They made my favorite foods 🙂

Sweet Summertime.

My plate – Pre 2 chocolate chip cookies and a serving or two of “THE DESSERT” (recipe to come in the near future) Post – eating my weight in crackers & cheese, pita chips & hummus, more shrimp and baked ruffles with greek yogurt french onion dip. When I stuff myself silly I tend to get a little silly.

Or maybe that’s normal. I really don’t know anymore.

Today I met up with my friend Christina who wasn’t able to make it to my last night out. We had lunch plans at a restaurant I’ve been dying to try for about a year.

Lure’s Bar & Grille in Crownsville, MD is owned by a married couple.

It’s small, comfortable and cute.

We sipped on some wine and tangerine crushes while we browsed the menu…

I ordered the “Best Turkey Sandwich Ever”

Fresh sliced turkey, havarti cheese, bacon, avocado, spinach and red onion with honey mustard. It came with a side of sweet potato fries that I dipped in old bay. Ahhh heaven.

Christina ordered the next best thing on the menu… Pulled Pork!

That is one stacked sandwich. I tried it (obviously) and it was DELICIOUS. The food is fresh and doesn’t make you feel bleh when you leave. They also add a goldfish to every meal as presentation which I thought was super cute.

Good wine, good food and good company 🙂

Thanks for lunch Chrissy ❤

Other than these 3 days my life has been pretttty boring these past 3 weeks. I’ve been eating quick meals and trying to get rid of the food I have without going to the grocery store.

Eating huge bowls of cereal while I’m driving at stop signs.

Taking leftover grilled chicken and making buffalo chicken sandwiches or bbq chicken tortilla pizzas. Anything to not eat plain chicken over and over again 😉

I’m almosttt done packing (this doesn’t include my storage unit!)

and my boyfriend will be SO proud that I’ve gotten rid of A LOT of clothes – this bag comes up to my chest!

I’m going to end my boring Saturday night with a cup of Tasti D-Lite in honor of one of my best friend’s birthday’s!

If you can’t be with em… Eat dessert for em 😉

Happy Birthday Ash!

Countdown til I move: 4 days!!

QUESTIONS: How do you recover from a big night out?

Fashion Friday

Happy Friday!!!

This morning I woke up at 4am! Really? I guess my body wasnt aware that I set my alarm for 5 and wanted me awake… So, I headed to the gym. I took my normal Friday spin class – and there was a substitute teaching. Ugh, I am SO picky about my spin teachers and was tempted to immediately walk out but I gave her a shot. By the time the 4th song came on acoustic style I was out of there. I felt seriously rude but I needed to get my sweat on and that clearly wasn’t going to happen in there. After my 20 minutes on the spin bike I jumped on the elliptical and did 32 minutes of intervals. I finished out my morning with a little bit of ab work and headed home because my tummy was a rumbling.

Breakfast was cereal…two kinds! I was indecisive this morning so I used Kashi Go Lean & Cinnamon Burst Cheerios. I also added 3/4 0f a frozen banana sliced, more cinnamon, chia seeds and unsweetened almond milk.

It was refreshing and cold…Just what I needed.

Today the girls and I went to the park and as soon as we pulled up there was a man selling bikes. Random, right? Well more so fate in my eyes because I have been wanting a bike for when I move to Hoboken to ride up to the grocery store, run errands, hit up every fro-yo shop…you know, necessities. The one I liked was $700 at Bike Doctor so I knew I wasn’t going to be getting anything brand spankin new. So when I saw this today:

I knew I just HAD to have it. It was $30…Yeah, it’s vintage and maybe a little rusty. But that’s what I like about it. It gives it character…and it has a horn! I’m going to add a basket to the front. I’m such a child.

For today’s Favorite Friday I thought I would do a summer favorite fashion post. But first, a fashion show down… Who wore it best??

Ha – Just kidding, kind of. Does she look better in my dress than me? Damn those young kids, I want my metabolism back! 😉 The 5-year-old I nanny for likes to either put on something similar to what I’m wearing…or steal my clothes when we are changing for the pool. She insisted she wear MY dress to the pool and I walk around in my bathing suit. Um, I don’t think so but good try. I did let her wear it around the house for a little bit so she could feel “fancy”. Side Note: Her version of the dress was clearly tied in the back as I do not wear a size that would fit a 5-year-old child. Duh.

Back to the true fashion part of this post.

What do you wear to _blank_? I’m going to give you outfit selections I think would be appropriate for each event. If you are interested in any of the items I can email you where I found them but there are too many to list right now!

A cookout?

The beach?

Pool party?

Summer Date Night?

Summer Day Date?

Picnic?

 

Graduation?

Girls night out?

Summer Wedding?

 

I found every item on ShopStyle – It’s kind of like Pinterest except you can put outfits together! These are just a few of my favorite summer looks for various occasions. How much do personal shoppers make? That would be the best job!!

I have a fun weekend ahead – kicking it off right now with a movie and spending some QT with this QT 🙂

Exactly 3 more weeks of MD living…better get our crab on this weekend! See ya Monday 🙂

QUESTIONS: Do you like to mix your cereals? Does cereal hold you over til lunch time?
