Perfect Weekend: Friends + Yoga + NYC Restaurants

8 Aug

Salutation Nation by lululemon was yesterday morning! My friends were here from out of town, so we dragged our inner yogini’s out of bed and into Bryant Park for class with Matt & Dechen, who were hilarious, by the way 😀

It was so great to spend some time with friends and to experience NYC, which includes trying new restaurants, of course 😀 Here’s the recap:

Friday dinner: We went to South Street Seaport for the YACHT concert, and Pacific Grill. I got this:

“Black & White Sesame Coated Yellow Pink Ahi Tuna served with tossed market greens, julienne peppers, onion, tomato served with asian ginger soy dressing.”

Saturday breakfast: We had built up an appetite during yoga, so afterwards, we went straight to Keko Cafe (midtown east). I got a crepe with smoked salmon inside. DELISH 😀

Saturday dinner: We went to California Pizza Kitchen, because it was convenient and oh, so, good 😀 We were shocked by the (exorbitantly high) calories listed on the menu, but too hungry to care… We walked (and shopped) all day, so, whatever. Right?

Sunday breakfast: Tick Tock Diner… not exactly healthy, per se, but–wow–who knew their pumpkin pancakes were AMAZING???

Now my friends are traveling home, and I’m off to candlelit yoga tonight. Since I’m following Angela‘s rule of only eating restaurant foods that I can make in my own kitchen, it looks like I have a few recipes to add to my list!

Hope you all had a great weekend, too 😀

All Things Good

5 Aug

Today after work, I stopped by J.Crew (confession: nothing is good there right now), lululemon (confession: everything is good there right now), and got a (much-needed) pretty pink manicure 😀 Afterwards, I walked through the Union Square farmers market just in time for closing and picked up some gorgeous sunflowers. Now, my apartment feels like this:

How’s that for positive energy 😀 To keep the good stuff coming, I had some turbo salad (blueberries + kale + sunflower seeds+ pomengranate dressing= perfection). Then, I walked to yoga class. Or, to be more accurate, I sprinted like I was running 20 minutes late (oh wait, I was) and got there a full 60 seconds early 😀

Update: Project 31 Days of Yoga is still on track 😀 Well, it may have gone slightly off track on Day 2, when I fell asleep instead of doing a yoga to the people podcast class… but I did two classes in a row yesterday with friends, so no worries!

Now, I’m (supposed to be) cleaning my apartment because friends from home are staying with me this weekend 😀 Oh, by the way, I despise cleaning… even more than laundry! I suppose it would be slightly more bearable, however, if I had one of these sweet suits:

Attractive, right? 😀 Anyway, tomorrow night I’m trying anti-gravity yoga for the first time! I am SO excited. It will be my first time in a yoga hammock! I keep thinking, it’s just a hammock– how hard could it be?

We will find out the answer to that question tomorrow 😀 Gnite, lovelies!
