my weekends are best described through food


When I thought about doing a life lately/sentence per picture type post for today, I giggled a bit when checking out my photos, noticing that most of them are food. I guess it’s only natural that someone like me share life updates and recaps via what I eat since food is such a major part of my life.

The virus I had last week has made life hard for me because my appetite returned to normal right away but my stomach has taken a long time to handle what I want to keep eating.

I am stubborn (in case you didn’t know) so attempting to eat overly bland or less than what I desire is not okay in my world, especially when I am hungry!

I did enjoy this giant bagel (which my stomach appreciated) while in the city the other day with a side of grape jelly.

New York bagels are the best. There’s no comparison.

Fruit has not been my friend which is really hard for someone who lives on fruit but my stubborn side ordered this fruit bowl anyway at Sarabeth’s, justifying it because it contained a lot of bananas. Isn’t it pretty?

Taking my son with me food shopping always leads to extra purchases like this carton of Ben & Jerry’s. What’s your favorite flavor?


The other night I wanted pizza. Veggie-loaded pizza. I was hungry and craving it, not really caring what happened if I ate it nor did I think twice when I ordered a second slice. So there.

Pizza is really the craving of the moment so I made this really crispy pizza bagel. It was so good that I can’t stop thinking about it!

Back in the day we used to have pizza bagel night once a week (I think it was Wednesday nights) so I am considering bringing that back into the dinner rotation. Why not right? Maybe use whole wheat bagels with a side salad? Perfect dinner if you ask me.

I rationalized eating Red Mango as a dietary need for the live active cultures and probiotics.

Oh look, a non-food photo! I played skee ball at the Bayville Adventure Park.

And I got a much needed manicure. Sugar Daddy.


Anyone remember this colorful lululemon running skirt from a few years ago?! I forgot I had it but have to say, it’s probably the most comfortable one I own. It’s not the pace setter skirt, it’s a different one.

I feel like it’s been forever since I had my favorite salad at The Cheesecake Factory. Aside from the vegetable pizza the other night, I have not been eating vegetables so I really needed this in my life.

We ate outside, realizing it’s basically the middle of August. How did this happen? Camp is almost over for my son which means I better finish buying the school supplies. I can’t even. I am not ready!

Last time you had a pizza bagel?!

If you wear running skirts, which is your favorite?

Best thing you ate all weekend?
