Sunday Snaps #10 – Food and Pride

I think all I’ve done this week has been eat and eat some more. We were supposed to be at Josh’s cousin’s wedding this weekend in Pittsburgh but since I’m due in 3 weeks, we unfortunately decided not to go. Despite missing the wedding, we had much to celebrate here.


We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary with dinner at Anthony David’s in Hoboken. The meal was so good that the chocolate brownie with pistachio gelato dessert was the only picture we took the whole evening. Each year we celebrate by taking a trip but this year is the first time we didn’t travel for our anniversary. Don’t worry though because I’m already itching to go away and thinking ahead to where I’d like to celebrate our 10th anniversary.


I made overnight oats for the first time! I realize that I am late to the party but we finally got lids for our mason jars and of course you cannot possibly make overnight oats in something other than a mason jar. I made the classic overnight oats (and topped it with granola and berries the next morning) and the chocolate peanut butter one using these recipes. Both were really yummy.


Yesterday, we celebrated a belated Father’s Day and my dad’s birthday with dinner at Dino and Harry’s. I have waited for an amazing piece of meat all week and this meal totally satisfied the craving. I also loved how the steak looked like a pig!


Today, we went to brunch at Maialino to send off a couple of good friends as they embark on an adventure in Southern California. The pastries, which I do not have pictures of (of course!), were incredible. And I wish I can fit in their suitcase for California.



We walked by the Pride March on our way to the train and the energy was intoxicating. It was really great to see all the crowds and corporate support.

Hope you had a great weekend like me with a lot of great food and celebrations! 


We’re back in Hoboken!

252a880a-d8db-4bd1-a4e1-cbfe3ad1e593And with that, we’re officially moved and back in Hoboken. We moved last Monday and it was nice that Josh was able to take off most of the week off so we could unpack and get settled. We’re about 95% of the way there — just waiting on some furniture items to finish the kitchen, setting up the baby’s room, and going through some things that have moved with us over and over. Since coming back into town, we’ve been able to enjoy most of our favorite things again and are feeling right at home!

img_5385On our first night back, we had dinner at the food trucks on Pier 13 and enjoyed frozen yogurt from 16 Handles, which while not specific to Hoboken was a place we frequented a bit since we used to live upstairs from it. We went back to the pier for Food Truck Frenzy, an event we actually never made it to before but are so glad we were able to finally go. There were over 15 different food trucks on the pier and Sinatra Drive. The atmosphere is very casual and how you can beat watching the NYC skyline while enjoying all the yummy food?

img_5386img_5403On the exercise front, I’ve already been to two Local Barre classes (and a short run on the treadmill, it was too hot for pregnant me to run outside this weekend) and boy did I miss this workout. I am looking forward to attending more classes in the upcoming weeks especially since I have an unlimited month and getting out for a run along the waterfront when the weather cools down (or I can get up earlier).

As for the apartment, we used the baby’s room as our storage unit when we first moved in but have since been able to clear some of that out and put it in her closet! It’s a good thing baby’s don’t need that much closet space.

img_5463Our kitchen was even in good enough shape to cook dinner for the first time yesterday! And I made lunch today too. While I have enjoyed eating out at all of our favorite restaurants again, I do miss a home cooked meal.


And finally, we did get to enjoy the outdoors this weekend with a short trip to the pool.
