New Jersey Weekend Things

Posted on


I don’t know about you, but I feel like it was just last Sunday. No complaints about winter going so quickly except that, well—wait? Where the hell did February go? What did I do with myself? Okay, a lot, but still…

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent a good part of this weekend with family. I hadn’t been to New Jersey since Christmas, which is kind of nuts. I’d like to say my reasons for being there were all good (and not too many funerals and quality-of-life discussions lately), but it was nice to catch up and even see a few cousins I hadn’t seen in at least 6 or 7 years! There was also a cute dog.

This is Francie—aka the Franz. She's 15!

I also always eat well when I go visit. A few highlights were dinner  at a local Italian restaurant, weird savory breakfast, and mother-daughter lunch.

I’ve also been doing a lot of studying and practice-testing. I don’t know why this matters to become an RD, but at least now I know why that cake my sister and I made in 2002 fell down in the middle: excess sugar and fat. Noted.

It being a new month with a new season coming and all, I’m really looking forward to good stuff. Warmer weather, hopefully fewer sad-bastard moments, and fewer expensive kombucha cravings. And hopefully I’ll stop listening to this song on repeat. I may not be sick of Jenny Lewis yet, but my neighbors probably are.

What are you looking forward to this month?
