Recapping the Week

July 6, 2012

It’s been another busy week for me.  The beach, running errands, making phone calls, a mid-week holiday and an end of the week nail appointment this morning.

My sisters and I kicked off the week with a perfect beach day!  I followed that up with a Tuesday in Colts Neck, NJ with my cousin.  We had lunch and did a little shopping at Delicious Orchards.  Do NOT ever let me in there again when I am craving summer fruit.  I had to make serious room in my fridge after that trip!  But man are the peaches I bought delicious!  Mike has also been enjoying the cookies and cider donuts that I brought home for him.  

Our 4th of July was boring.  I spent the majority of the day in my bedroom with a migraine.  I picked the wrong holiday to have a pounding headache!  Thankfully the sound of our air conditioner muted out the rock music coming from our neighbors and the firecrackers.  Thankfully I have a wonderful husband-to-be who checked on me throughout the day and left Gatorade next to the bed for me.  Even after I came out of hiding, he was still catering to me.  I should feel like crap more often (no, I take that back)!  I’m sure the 90 degree weather we’ve been having was a big factor in this week’s migraine.  It’s been hot, sticky and gross!

I felt much better yesterday and headed to Westfield for Thursday grocery shopping with my cousin.  My cousin picks up a Fresh Box every Thursday from Alan’s Orchard.  I usually go in and pray they have an extra box I can buy off of them.  Alan put me on top of his e-mail list this week and granted me a spot on the Fresh Box program.  Starting next Thursday, I am officially picking up my own reserved Fresh Box full of local fruits and veggies!  This week’s box has already inspired me to make a bunch of new dishes, which will hopefully inspire a whole bunch of new recipe posts!  I also bought some gifts at the Farmhouse, plus a rosemary scented candle for myself.  I love the smell of rosemary!  

Today has been a very easy day.  I logged online this morning and checked out my Sephora Beauty Insider birthday message.  In another week, I can go to Sephora and redeem a free birthday gift!  I had a much-needed nail appointment this morning and followed that by picking up fro-yo afterwards.  We’re having pizza at Mike’s parents’ house tonight and riding bikes there and back.  As for the weekend, there’s nothing planned at the moment.  

Have a good weekend!
