I’m Back!!

Hello hello!

It feels so good to be updating after a couple of weeks of being away. As many of you might know, I ran off to the East Coast for a week to frolic with lovely people. It was an awesome 10 days. I got to see sooooo many people that I love and miss. Though I was in some great cities, my motivation for traveling was to spend some quality time with people that I haven’t seen in a while and I’m SO glad that I took the time.

Because I was running around, hanging out with amazing people for my entire vacation, I am (of course) waaaay behind on my class work for this week. That being said, this post is mostly a recap of my vacation through pictures with a few captions just to give you guys an idea of all the fun I had. I must admit, I don’t have as many pictures as I should. I’m realizing the irony of me being a blogger given my lack of propensity to take pictures. :/ I’m working on it, however. Hopefully I’ll have it together in time for my summer adventures (which I’m oh so excited about!).

Surprisingly, there is only one food pic. Womp womp. I know. It’s shocking. The lack of pictures, however, does not mean that I did not have some great gastronomic adventures (including one on first night in NYC that I got FO FREE from the lovely friends that Sabine and I made at the resto). I easily get caught up in the flavors, non-traditional beverages, and good company and neglect to hit the button on my iPhone. I promise to make it up in delicious recipes in the weeks to come. I’m already plotting a delicious post once I get through this crazy week!

One one of my nights in New York, we came together for an amazing evening of wine and cacio e pepe, an Italian dish that holds the utmost sentimental value. Oh the memories!

photo 2The whole idea behind this pic was that we could take another one at night once we were all dolled up and ready to go out for the night. After a few glasses of prosecco and red wine, however, we failed to actually make that happen. You’ll just have to take my word that we clean up nicely.

Mmkay. That’s all I have. Not too exciting, I know. BUT…..I’m about to get serious about my recipe game especially since I’m going to be starting a 30-day paleo challenge with my roommate, George, next week. I’ll explain later….
