...Friday, I woke up, did a spin class, did some work and then hopped in the car to drive to the North Fork to spend the weekend there. we drove through Manhattan, picked up Sweet Green salads for lunch and then swung by our friends' apartment and picked them up. We all drove to the North Fork (in Long Island) and stopped at Croteaux Vineyards (an adorable rosé winery) for a couple bottles of rosé (I was the designated driver, of course - lucky them!) after that, we headed to the North Fork Table & Inn for an amazing dinner - and INCREDIBLE chocolate chip cookies.
...Saturday, we woke up and I led a workout class! I did it through the Nike Training Club App - it was a killer, sweaty workout and we all woke up the next day very, very sore. after that, we headed to Love Lane Kitchen in Mattituck for breakfast. after that, we came back to the house we were staying at (our friends let us stay at their house for the weekend), showered, got ready, and Lu and I dropped off our friends at a house nearby and then Lu and I drove to Southhampton for a party with PureWow. It was absolutely unbelievable - the houses in Southhampton are just stunning estates, it's almost unreal. Actually, it's unreal. The party was a lot of fun and I got to meet some lovely ladies. after that, we drove back to Mattituck and picked up our friends and we headed to a nearby winery, Lieb Cellars. After that, we headed to a friend's house for some appetizers and drinks and hung out there for a couple of hours until we had to leave to drive to Greenport to have dinner at Noah's.
...Sunday, we decided to just wake up, have breakfast, and head back home to avoid traffic. we went to good food and I had a breakfast egg burrito in a whole wheat wrap. we made excellent time, dropped our friends back home in Gramercy Park and then headed back to Jersey City. we stopped at our favorite smoothie place, got some smoothies, and then drove back to the apartment. I was ambitious and wanted to go on a walk in the city, but I took a 2-hour nap instead. this mama was TIRED! then, we headed to dinner at a local spot - I had my favorite veggie burger. then, we came back, and Lu built a bunch of furniture for the nursery and then we watched some Netflix! it's all coming together! my goal is to be done by 35 weeks so I don't have to worry about a THING and can just enjoy the last 5 weeks of my pregnancy and "alone time" with Lu, stress-free. I don't want to be scrambling at the end. that's the plan, at least.
what I'm into RN...
I've been living in these Gap maternity denim shorts. they're on sale!
the secret to thigh chafing? I found it! BANDELETTES. life-changing, especially now that I'm experiencing some serious chafage thanks to this pregnancy weight gain. I got them in the smallest size in 'Beige Unisex.'
this article about the fakeness of food Instagrammers. after seeing girls pose with ice creams and then immediately put them in the garbage, I'm happy someone wrote a piece about it finally.
I'm digging the black and white version of this pineapple cross body bag.
I'm shopping for dresses for my baby shower in a couple of weeks (july 30th!) and I wanted to wear something blue to celebrate having a baby boy - just bought this, fingers crossed it fits!
I also bought this at ASOS, for a casual summer dress, with a little bit of a sleeve to transition to chilly late-summer nights.
there's a 25% off sale at West Elm right now, expiring tonight. I need some new vases. what do you need?
