Fabletics Outfit and Rowing

So I bought these cute Lima Capri pants in Moss Camo from Fabletics, and I am totally digging them.  I wore them to my first ever rowing class at Row House in NYC.
On the subway en route to class.

I really feel that badass camo print is perfect for a rowing class.

Trader Joe's Super Spinach Salad

I tried the Trader Joe's Super Spinach Salad for lunch today, and it was yummy! It's definitely my favorite pre-fab salad of theirs thus far. The dressing was tasty, and all of the ingredients were good.

Slacking on Blogging

This summer has been tough, but overall I heart my life.
Enjoyed this yummy flat white the other day after a workout with a girlfriend.
It has literally been months since I last posted on here. I'll just blame it on work, social life, working out, and family. Things have been busy, and I have been distracted. In an effort to make it up to you, here are some random photos from recent weeks (mostly all food):
Had a delicious lunch the other day of tortilla chips, salsa, guac, and a fish taco... oh, the memories.
I love the West Elm on the UWS and really am obsessed with the brandy snifters on the left.  Didn't buy any though, because isn't it a little alcoholic to have a glass for every kind of liquor?  I'll probably buy two anyway as they remind me of Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window.
My husband really loves me and not only makes me breakfast on the weekends, but puts cute pictures in ketchup on the breakfast. 
This was for the Fourth of July.
I am obsessed with Shake Shack's cheese fries.  The little wooden fork is perfection.  We go here way more often than is appropriate, but this was my first time insisting on my own cheese fries.
In addition to working out more, I'm upping my vitamin game with a multivitamin, iron supplement, and b6.

Anthropologie Birthday Party

The Anthropologie on the Upper East Side threw a special birthday party last month for any Anthro members celebrating birthdays in April.  It seemed like a cute concept and I love a discount; so I went to the event after a long day at work.

There were Prosecco cocktails that you could sip while trying on clothes and an adorable candy station

This top is bananas
My new spring dress!  Only downside is it's dry clean only.
Cute new maxi skirt - love shopping with a cocktail in hand!
I spent waaay too much money for my birthday at Anthropologie, but I love that they treat their loyal customers well!

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook - Tomato-Glazed Meatloaves with Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes

Meatloaf has never been my thing, but my husband loves it.  I decided to try a recipe for it from the cookbook The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook.  It was fantastic!

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is new to our home and this was the first recipe we tried from it (note all the post-its marking other recipes I want to try).
The finished product next to the picture from the cookbook - tasted better than it looked!
A mouthful of meatloaf and mashed potatoes - very flavorful and hearty!

I bought some succulents at Trader Joe's for a shelf in our living room, and I'm quite pleased/think it adds good energy:

Trader Joe's Crispy Cookies Filled with Belgian Chocolate

Trader Joe's Crispy Cookies Filled with Belgian Chocolate are essentially Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, but better.
