Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a great weekend! The weather is crazy here in NJ, freezing cold to warm to pouring rain. I am content with 65-75 degrees for all of winter. No need to see snow ever again.

Anyway, after my weather tangent I wanted to share some fun highlight from the weekend!

Friday night started off with leg day, a quick shopping trip for Halloween costume accessories, dinner, cycling playlist making and bed by 10pm.

Lavash Flatbread Pizza

Saturday started bright and early with a very sweat Halloween themed cycling class. I hadn’t been in two weeks and it felt great to get back to a class!

Then I came home, showered, made a grocery list/meal plan then headed to Trader Joe’s!

Pumpkin Flax Granola, canned pumpkin and Greek yogurt.

After food shopping and a quick lunch/snack I headed to acupuncture. My body was craving it, I couldn’t go for two weeks due to a crazy schedule so it was awesome to get some much needed pain relief!

When I got home I did a quick meal prep of my salads for the week: roasted butternut squash, lentils, chicken, cabbage, pomegranates, goat cheese, walnuts and spinach. Talk about Fall superfoods!

Then I got a quick manicure with my mama so I could have black nails for my Halloween costume.

Came home and whipped up a quick dinner: “Sweet Potato Nachoes” roasted sweet potatoes, ground beef, black beans, onion, peppers topped with Greek yogurt, salsa and guacamole.

Then it was time to transform into a Basic Witch, get it “basic b*tch” haha the girls that drink pumpkin spice lattes, wear uggs and fur vests aka me because I owned almost all of the costume.

Then we headed to our friend’s apartment then headed to the city.

Bruce Springsteen and his flag!

On our way to the party we made sure to take pics at ALL the Starbucks that we saw. A basic witch needs her starbucks fix.

The party we went to was in the Village so it was crazy crowded with the best people watching ever. We had fun at the party, danced and ate a lot of candy. 🙂

On Sunday I woke up at 9:30 am after going to bed at 4am. So two cups of coffee was needed in getting my life together. Eventually I showered, paid some bills and did laundry haha.

After that it was time to help decorate the cake that my Dad has been working on for my mom’s birthday for the past few days. We had to roll out white and dark chocolate using my pasta maker. The white chocolate was super hard to work with so we ended up being creative and making hearts instead of ribbons on the top. I think it came out cute!

The original vs. ours! Pretty good!

Before dessert we had to have dinner! A sea bass and clam stew over crusty white bread.
