...Friday, my family came over for dinner! My grandmother and father came over, along with my sister and Ben. we had a little party in the new apartment and the boys went downstairs and grilled some chicken, fish, and veggies. I made the potatoes and we had plenty of dessert! it was a great little night altogether. My mother was missed, but she's down in FL! Her #FOMO was real.
...Friday, after work, I flew to Florida to spend the weekend with my mom (for Mother's Day) and my sister. my flight was delayed two hours, OF COURSE. got in, hung out a bit, and passed out.
...Friday, the weather was so crummy, and we had full intentions of going out to our local favorite Mexican joint, but we decided to stay in. My sister and her fiancé came over and we ordered in BBQ and tacos and watched a movie. and then ordered in fro-yo. classic Friday night!
...Friday, Lu and I went for a run outside after work, because it was so beautiful out. it was pretty tough running with this little tummy - my bladder also couldn't handle it. definitely had to stop to pee! afterwards, we met up with Ben & Felicia for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. after, we came home and I did a little work and we went to bed. long week!
...Friday, after work, I went into NYC to TriBeCa to meet my sister and my mom to try on wedding dresses at Lovely Bride, an adorable boutique. my sister mayyyy have found THE dress. after that, we went out to dinner and met up with Lu and her fiancé Ben in Jersey City. got fro-yo after, then we hung out at Felicia's place for a bit and then came home and went to bed!
...Friday, Lu came home early and we went to see an apartment at 5pm. we loved it, so we put in an application, so cross your fingers for us! It's a 2BR + den, so I would probably be back to working from home, but I'm okay with that, considering it's 1,600+ square feet and we currently live in 950 square feet. after that, we chilled and watched a few more episodes of Love, and then met up with my friend Cassidy for dinner and a comedy show in Jersey City, at this Spanish tapas joint called Raval. great food and the last comedian of the set was hilarious, Bonnie McFarlane.
...Friday, we met up with my sister Felicia and her fiancé Ben. We had dinner at a local spot (I got the veggie burger and split the fried green tomatoes with Lu), and then went to see Get Out, the new movie created by Jordan Peele (a comedian/actor/writer we love.) I REALLY recommend it, it was a thriller with funny jokes nestled in between the movie's scariest parts. we hadn't seen a movie in a really long time, so it was a great Friday night. we got back around 11pm and passed out.
I have to admit, I have been seeing collagen peptides everywhere. if you're like me and are wondering 'why the heck is everyone using collagen?', then this post is for you.
I first started learning about collagen with the big bone broth explosion last year. everyone was about the bone broth, mainly because of the collagen benefits. so what is collagen and what are its benefits?
