MIMM {Food & Family in Hashtags}

This weekend I got to spend at home with my family in New Jersey. It flew by, and I really did not do much besides eat, which is the BEST.  I wanted to blog but ended up just relaxing and unplugging a little bit. Considering it's already AUGUST (WTF!?!?) and school starts for me in a few weeks when I'll have no life, this weekend was marvelous . I decided to do this recap with accompanying hashtags because I love that they are short and sweet. 

The bad 

Being delayed on the train heading to my Philly because the train in front of us broke down. No bueno.  #getmeoffthistrain

Monday mornings on work days. #seriouslywhereisthecoffee

No solid workouts besides my long runs.  #restdayvibes

The good 

Dooby's avocado toast (recipe here) for breakfast with a side of coffee. It is amazing and has tons of avocado on top of soft sourdough bread.

My sister has just returned from 6 months with the Disney College program, and it was fabulous to give her lots of big hugs.  

Being greeted Thursday evening with a Philly cheesesteak from Geno'sI had a provolone, wit (that means I had mine with provolone cheese and onions on it!).  It's been SO long-it was amazing, and I ate every last bite. #onlyinphillyfoods

Receiving my prize from a Fitfluential CALIA by Carrie Underwood giveaway for this beautiful top that is ridiculously soft and feels like pajamas (along with a pretty headband.) I've been dying to try out her line.  #workoutclothesarerealclothes

I ate delicious chocolate cake three nights in a row. My mom made it for scratch for a belated birthday celebration for my sister. The frosting was like fudge and I may have eaten many spoonfuls of the leftovers.  #ohmyyumwhatbikinibody

Sleeping in on Sunday mornings is still amazing.  #homeiswheremybedis

Saturday morning solo long runs that feel great and include post-run watermelon juice Gundalow juice.  #willrunforwatermelon

Sunday pasta and homemade gravy & meatballs with delicious garlic bread for dinner. I will never get sick of my mom's homemade meatballs.  She is adorable and even makes the brown rice spaghetti for her and I after I introduced her to it.  #mymomissecretlyitalian

    And we don't talk about travel delays.

  4. I would have taken the chocolate cake with me. Not even kidding. Actually I would've finished it while I was home. Shameless. : )

    1. There was only a small piece left and after already eating about a slice earlier I felt bad. I do regret it today though lol!

  5. That sounds like such a wonderful weekend! Smashed avo on sourdough is my all-time fave and finally, lunch twice this week. Love it with extra lime, bacon, and sliced tomatoes. BLT-ish.

    We had EPIC thunderstorms yesterday, which was a great way to end the weekend; reading on the couch listening to a few storms. It's a holiday here today, so, a nice easy way to get into a very busy week.
