june 24: weekend recap

Happy Monday! I had an awesome whirlwind of a weekend. I was up in New Jersey and New York for a friend’s bridal shower, so the days were filled with girl time and family time. I remembered to take some photos from the weekend (blogger score!), so read on for the quick recap:

bridal shower, wedding, strapless dress workout

well, i didn’t take this photo, my friend did…but doesn’t everyone look so pretty?

Photo-op with the ladies from college. Later that day we got into reminiscing about the silly things we did throughout those four years. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! The bride is front and center, how adorable does she look?! Picture-perfect bride.

healthy buffalo chicken sandwich recipe

This sandwich is included in my recap to make my brother JEALOUS. A local deli in my parents’ town makes the most delectable buffalo chicken sandwich. If you haven’t caught on by now, I am head over heels in love with anything buffal-ized. When my brother returns home from Kuwait, I’m sure this will be his first stop on the way from the airport. Side note: I actually photographed this sandwich from the runway at Newark airport. I forgot how much I hate that place. After nearing a nervous breakdown waiting in the eternally long security line, we boarded smoothly. Leaving on time didn’t matter however, as we had to wait in a 20-plane-long line to take off. Thank god I had that sando to keep me nourished!

running with your partner, couples running, sex and runningOkay, this little gem surfaced in the July/August issue of SHAPE magazine that I picked up for the flight. If you enjoy running and your significant other enjoys running as well, why not try it together? Clearly, as shown above, there could be some unexpected benefits. I preached my couple-running tips and tricks to some people this weekend, and I’d recommend skimming this post that discusses how to run with your partner and keep your sanity at the same time.

How was your weekend? Did you accomplish anything huge, like a half marathon, a long road trip to the beach, or crushing an entire keg?
