iPhone diary

Life has been such an adventure lately but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So this is where I live! I’m obsessed with the older, beautiful homes on my street.  I snapped this pic on my way to church in the snow yesterday.  (How I made it to church in the snow after being out late Saturday night is beyond me).  The Gold Coast in Chicago has some gorgeous stinkin’ houses. If only I were a millionaire and could afford to buy a place here…

Zoo lights in Chicago were pretty cool!  Definitely got me in the Christmas spirit. : )

I got to spend a week and a half home for Christmas and it was awesome. My nieces are quite possibly the 2 cutest human beings in the entire world. (And one more is on the way!) I love being an aunt.

I was able to work from our Philly office for a few days when I was home. Kinda missed that place.

Got in a few (painful) long runs while I was home. Ouch. I think I forgot how taxing running up and down hills can be. It’s been so cold in Chicago that I’ve only been running inside. Luckily my gym is amazing and has an indoor track, but STILL… I miss the great outdoors.

Also worked from our NYC office one day while I was home. I love New York in small doses, but I will admit, it is such an electric city.

TBOX bar crawl in Chicago with these beauties. Wild, wild, wild but I’m glad I experienced it at least once. (And no, I have no idea who that guy is behind us.)

Sleepy baby at home. I love my little brothers more than words.

Got to spend NYE in Chicago with these babez <3

And my best guy friend in Chicago, Phil. Ladies… He’s single. ; )

Shameless NYE selfie. I’m obsessed with the dress I wore. It’s from this store in Chicago called Akira. Chicago girls… If you ever need a fancy dress… Go there!! Impossible not to find one.

I’ve been doing most of my workouts in the morning. As much as waking up at 5:15 suckssss, it’s seriously the BEST way to start the day. Hands down.

Finally started cooking a lot at home. I’m glad I got back into it because for a while there my diet basically consisted of Greek yogurt, fruit, rice cakes and cheese. Embarrassing. Plenty new recipes to come on the blog. : )

I leave you with a beautiful PA sunset.

Last weekend we had a going away party for my sister and my friend Joan showed up in the exact.same.outfit. It was completely unplanned and I was dying when she walked into our house in this outfit. Which obviously meant my other girls had to change into similar outfits… ; )

These girls are my world.

I got my braces on this day and which would explain why everyone has grillz. My friend Kate wore her retainer all night. Talk about a real friend. <3 20130814-113733.jpg
Gorgeous flowers from my friend Gianna.

Gym dates with my love. He’s so handsome…

Playing Cards Against Humanity. If you don’t have this (incredibly inappropriate and hilarious) game, buy it. Now!!!

My step sister Danielle got married! She looked so amazing and the wedding was absolutely adorable.

Baby brothers at the ceremony.

How cute?!

Pretty center pieces.

Post long run bubble baths are my savior.

Erik and Evan moved in this past weekend. So glad I have a new workout buddy in Ev : )

4th of July iPhone diary

Hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July weekend! Antonio and I are heading home from a great weekend at my grandparents’ place in Amagansett; it’s a little town between East Hampton and Montauk on Long Island. We’re always a little sad to leave but it was such a nice and relaxing weekend.

You can’t miss the place : )

My granddad and great granddad built the house together. It’s in the middle of the woods but only 2 miles from the beach – best of both worlds.

Grandmom & Granddad

Morning coffee on the deck. Ahhh

Beach bound!

Beach reading compliments of my friend Joan. This book is seriously laugh out loud funny. I can’t tell you how many times I would crack up and hand it over to my boyfriend and say “you have to read this!”

Splurged on some new VS bikinis. Oops!

I love how private the beaches are in Amagansett.

Yummy healthy breakfasts. My Grandmom picked up this blueberry bread from the farmer’s market. So. Good.

A little obsessed with this picture. How adorable? Granddad & Antonio.

The patio where we enjoy most of our meals.

Cervezas & mimosas on the beach. Please note the difference in skin tones. It’s hard dating a Portuguese guy sometimes… Makes me look even fairer than I already am!

Barefoot runs on the beach.

I can’t tell you how hilarious it was seeing Antonio run after me trying to snap pics of me running. Couldn’t stop laughing. : )

Brought some healthy snacks to the beach with us. Mason jars are perfect for homemade fruit cups.

Seeing cute little houses like this one on my runs.

Yes, I do still bring my baby blankie with me on trips like a 5 year old girl.

Packed turkey flatbread sandwiches for our drive home. Preparation is key! Last time we drove home from Amagansett we stopped at a Taco Bell for dinner and haaated ourselves for it afterwards. Not because we got sick or anything, but how can you not hate yourself a little bit after eating crappy fast food on the way home from vacation? No more of that!

Back to reality tomorrow. I’m looking forward to starting a fresh week, getting back on track with my workout schedule and eating healthy. I splurged a little bit this weekend but it was worth it : ).
