Saving Myself for the Bunny

Happy belated Easter/Passover!

I’m back in NYC after a fun Easter in NJ.


I made a tough decision of which hummus to pick from a display of basically hundreds. (Sabra Sun-Dried Tomato, if you were wondering.)



Ate salad AND pasta. (Linguine with white clam sauce.)


Dyed Easter Eggs.


Gave Bailey a bunny basket.


Ate eggs with mozzarella. Maybe not pretty, but delicious.


Drank mimosas.


Ate things in flaky pastry. (Pigs in a blanket and spanakopita.)


Paused for a doggie photoshoot.


“What are you doing?!”


I don’t even know.


After the appetizers came the spaghetti course, obviously. I went with whole wheat pasta with mine.

Usually, we take a very short break between the spaghetti course and every other course, but yesterday, we were absolutely stuffed, so we took a long break and a long walk. (In which I tricked my mom and Lacey into a longer walk.)


Round two involved Brussels sprouts with bacon and maple syrup.


A spinach salad with goat cheese, grape tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette.


And half a sweet potato and chateaubriand. Which was all delicious and stuff…


But I was saving myself for this bunny ice cream cake.


And this morning, I miraculously was out of bed at 5:50 to run 4.5 miles with Ashley. I’m glad we’re living close to each other, because Ashley is definitely a morning exerciser, and I’m hoping we’ll have more morning workout dates.

    Thank YOU for the run date! It wasn’t our fastest run together, by far, but it was exactly what I needed. Catching up, logging some miles, and enjoying a beautiful sunrise is perfect for a Monday morning! 🙂

    I’m definitely a morning exerciser too – if you and Ashley ever run together on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, count me in!

    (Because I’m guessing you don’t want to go at 3:45am on a Monday).

    I love that your mimosas are basically a glass of champagne with a teeny tiny splash of OJ.

    All of these pictures of food are making my mouth watered. I am glad that you had a good easter weekend. Most importantly awesome for the morning workout. I am starting back my working out afterwork no matter what routine today.
