Happy WIAW my friends!
It’s a special one because this passed Sunday on the 22nd, I celebrated my 26th birthday home in New York. As always, thanks Jenn for hosting. I have to say I think this was my best birthday yet. The weather was prefect, my whole family was there and everything just went right. Not to mention grabbing some delicious iced island coconut coffee from a rest stop on my way to New York. I just love Green Mountain coffee. The night before we went to a Michael Jackson tribute show at Lehman College for my cousin since he graduated high school! My mom picked up this delicious chocolate mousse cake and you know I ate it! Can’t pass up a good mousse-cake. Two and six are two of my favorite numbers; duh for June and 22 so I think this year is going to be a kick ass one. I woke up early and got a workout in at the very first gym I went to in NY. It’s where I started my weight loss journey almost five years ago. Then my mom and I went to Zumba with one of the best instructors ever; Sharon from Excel Yoga in the Bronx. Thanks for the awesome class as always Sharon! Post workout, we had smoothies from a place across the street called Juice Me. I created my own and had a spinach, kale, raspberry, grapefruit and almond milk smoothie (plus I added my own protein and flax).My dad and I went to a Yankee versus Baltimore game which was half a present to myself and half a late father’s day gift.We definitely had a blast and it was nice to spend some time with him. Plus my team won, so that’s a plus. Sorry dad!I had a chocolate pear ganache cake from my mommy; happy birthday to me! Presents? Spin shoes, a camera, Starbucks gift card, coffee and also a tattoo from my brother; a tree of life (with my frog in it!). Of course a little alcohol was involved. Instead of getting raspberry lambic, I got the peach one since I felt that was a smidge more summer-y. So delicious.
