Old and New

Happy Saturday loves! Adam and I woke up this morning with one thing on our mind: Working out. We both were feeling a little sluggish this week so we knew we needed a good sweat. There is a gym on the corner of our street that offers free CROSSFIT classes on Saturday so we tried it out.

There were 60 people in this class which was great motivation. I really enjoyed that everyone in the class was extremely fit and nobody gave up during the hour-long workout. My bum is already hurting from the air squats. We are going to look into attending more classes although I think its VERY pricey so we shall see.

After our CROSSFIT class I made some Funfetti Protein Pancakes. Have you seen these yet?

I added 2 scoops of cake batter protein and 1 cup of water and it turned out pretty amazing if  I do say so myself.

The package claims to make 12 cupcakes…But it only made 6 for us.

After running some errands and doing “chores” we ate lunch so we could head to the movies!

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (recipe coming soon)

Plan was to eat before we got there so we wouldn’t want popcorn.

We held out for about 20 minutes. Adam and I split the kid’s meal which comes with popcorn, fruit snacks and a drink. Perfectly proportioned for the two of us and it was fitting we got the kid’s meal since we went to see this

Lion King in 3D baby! We were definitely the only people in the theater above the age of 4… No joke.

Since the movie theater is so close to Trader Joe’s/Target Adam agreed to getting the grocery shopping out-of-the-way. Only new thing I bought:

But I bet you it’s going to be a good one! Thinking of whipping up some pumpkin cream cheese to go with it. Jealous? I’ll share my creations.

While we were grocery shopping Adam volunteered to make dinner. I knew that meant he wanted some red meat (which I wont cook) so I agreed.

Steak, shrimp, mashed potatoes and asparagus… I never knew my boyfriend was such a good cook. He may have just gotten himself into trouble because I’m going to request this happens A LOT more now 🙂

We’re going to enjoy an ice cream sandwich and watch a movie. Big day of apple/pumpkin picking tomorrow!!

QUESTION: Do you order popcorn at the movie theater or do you have more will power than me?

Date Night

Date Night started off with a bouquet of long stem roses 🙂

How did I get so lucky 😉

We planned on taking the ferry to NYC which actually turned out to be nice and not sweltering hot.

OK, maybe a little sweaty but for 110 degrees it wasn’t THAT bad. The cab to the restaurant was actually 67 times worse.

We arrived 5 minutes late and the couple we were meeting were already there so we didn’t have time to sit in the bar area which I thought was very charming. Next time we’ll have to be on time!

We started out with a bread basket, some wine for the ladies and beer for the men.

I picked a piece of bread that had cranberries, it was REALLY good. I also had a bite of Adam’s which seemed to be a pretzel roll that was also good.

Appetizers for 3 of us were the mixed greens salad

It had a nice kick to it which we all agreed was some type of horseradish flavor.

For our main meal Adam and I were going to split so we could have a little taste of everything. I ordered the crab cakes while he chose the filet mignon and a lobster tail.

We also got a couple of side dishes to split at the table.

DELICIOUS MAC AND CHEESE. Yes, CAPS were necessary.

The hash browns were also delicious. The potato was perfectly cooked. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

This rich meal didn’t stop there. We all ordered dessert…

I chose the cheesecake

which was absolutely amazing. You can tell everything is handmade.

Adam ordered the chocolate mousse cake

It was also really good but when it comes to chocolate cake I’m not that big of a fan. The desserts left us really full and wishing for someone to roll us out of there and into our beds.

Unfortunately we still had a trek back home… On the ferry back with our full bellies we admired how pretty the city looks at night

and remembered just how lucky we are to have a nice dinner out, with good friends, in a beautiful city. Even though it was hot, things could be a WHOLE heck of a lot worse.

Date Night success. I’m off to the Outerbanks with my family! Weeeee.

QUESTIONS: Where was your last date night??
