Hi guys – Happy New Year! I hope you had fun celebrating last night. Just in case you need it, check out my Hangover Busting Smoothie Recipe. 😉
As you can probably guess, our NYE was extremely low key – in fact, I was asleep when the ball dropped. Oh well! I spent most of yesterday in bed, actually – I thought I might be coming down with something because I just felt off, but I think I was actually just really overtired because I feel fine today. Being overtired when you have a newborn? No way, right?! 😉 Shocking…
Matt and I have been missing our fun family walks – it has been REALLY cold here the past week so sadly we’ve mostly been staying indoors. I did get out on Saturday morning for a long walk with Freyja, though – Matt and Riese wanted to stay in and be cozy, and Freyja and I had energy to burn – worked out well! It was slightly less cold on Saturday, too, which was nice, although we woke up to a dusting of snow! Fun – I was so surprised when I looked outside in the morning!
On the food front, we ate a lot of homemade soup – we finished off the last of it this weekend with a couple different variations. This one full of veggies, some brown rice, and chickpeas was especially good!
My big outing of the weekend was on Friday night – I had a girl’s night with my high school friends Jenny, Lara, and Gretchen! Matt offered to stay home and babysit and invited a couple of his buddies over for a little pizza, beer, and baby evening while the ladies and I went out on the town. So fun!
We had dinner at Cava, a fun small plates mediterranean place, and ordered ALL the things and shared it all. Here’s just a sampling of what we ate – excuse the dim lighting, but everything was delicious! The brussels sprouts, flaming cheese, and chicken lollipops were my fave. 🙂
Have a nice day guys!
What did you do for NYE? Was anyone in Times Square? Would have been a REALLY cold night to watch the ball drop in person!
