These are a Few…

22 Jul

I ended up sleeping in until about 8:00 this morning, which is actually sort of late for me, even though it’s summer vacation! I guess walking around New York City in 100* heat yesterday really took it out of me. When I woke up, I headed to the gym & completed an elliptical workout, varying the incline & resistance. I also did a quick arm workout when I got home in a last-ditch effort to tone up my arms a bit more for the wedding!


Since I’ll probably be eating leftovers from yesterday, I figured I’d share a few of my favorite things with you all since I’m relatively new to blogging & this might help you get to know me a bit better. I’ll list a few today, & perhaps do a few additional posts with more of my random favorites, & trust me, they are random!

First up…

Iced coffee! (source)

Iced Coffee!

For some reason this is all I have been craving after my AM workouts; especially from Dunkin Donuts! As I said in this post, I pass a Dunkin Donuts on my way home from the gym, which doesn’t help my situation! I try to limit my iced coffee purchases to 3 a week so that I don’t end up spending $2.43 every day on my habit! $7 a week doesn’t seem too outrageous, does it?!


My favorite bag

My Gucci handbag!

I’m a purse girl all the way; I’ll always take a new purse over shoes! This bag is extra special though, because I purchased it at the Gucci store on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. Chris & I went on a trip there in December of 2008, & he encouraged me to purchase the bag because he knew I would love it even more having bought it at that store! And he was right! It was a big “investment,” (calling it that makes me feel better) but I get a lot of use out of it & I’m always reminded of our fun trip together! 🙂

Last up (for today’s post anyway) are…


The Phillies!

Even though I enjoy working out, I have never been an “athlete” & stink at pretty much every sport I attempt! I was never really a big fan of watching sports either. Over the past few years, however, Chris has cultivated a love for the Philadelphia Phillies within me! If you remember, I even showed you all my prized Ryan Howard bobble head in this post! I knew it was “true love” when I started watching the games without Chris! I’m truly a baseball convert!


Chris & I will be attending a wedding this evening; Chris is in the wedding party actually! So I’ll be re-capping that in a post tomorrow. (We have a wedding to attend next weekend too, then it’s our turn!)

Hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend!

What is one of YOUR favorite things?

    One of my favorite things: THE WEEKEND! 🙂 HA!
    I am with you on the athletic side of things, wish I was better, but I’m not. I’m active not athletic…. this is how I describe myself. It’s me!

    One of my favorite things is my camera! I try to take it most places I go. My mom really instilled the photography bug in me 🙂 I want to document my life and pictures are the easiest way to do that for me!

    I hope the wedding went well and I can’t wait to hear about yours 🙂

  2. Sister Knows Best « For the Sake of Cake - July 26, 2011

    […] This morning I headed to the gym bright & early for the 6:00AM BodyPump class. I stayed for a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical before my growling stomach told me it was time to head home. I even made it all the way home today without a stop at DD for an iced coffee… I’m trying to break the habit. […]
