Hi friends, welcome back! It’s already time for another What’s Up post. Jon and I spent the first week of August in Michigan attending Jon’s family golf outing and celebrating my birthday. Jon and I drove back with all our remaining wedding presents and surprisingly, the drive back flew by. The middle of the month wasn’t too busy because the weather was either too hot, or stormy. We went out for ice cream, cookies, and visited Smorgasburg with friends, so no shortage of good eats this month 🙂 Tomorrow we are flying back to Michigan to celebrate my friend’s wedding, and then down to Atlanta to spend time with Jon’s family. As much as I love the summer, I can’t wait for Fall and Halloween!
On to my post 🙂 I’ve been linking up with my first and favorite blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions:
What I’m eating: This past weekend we went to Smorgasburg in Williamsburg with some friends and had a blast trying out new places. Smorgasburg is a weekly food market with locations around NYC with about 30-75 food stalls. This was our first time going, but won’t be our last! We started with some dumplings from Mao’s Bao, then had a beer, nachos from Takumi Taco, and then ended with a Wowfull.
What I’m reminiscing about: four Labor Days ago I visited Jon in NYC for the first time! We ate dinner at Catch, saw the Freedom Tower and memorial fountains, and walked the High Line. This was pre-blog so I don’t have very many pictures sadly. I already think we look so young in the picture below which must mean I’m getting older ha!
What I’m loving: I’ve been doing the Walk + Run classes on the Peloton app and I think it’s so fun! I go through phases with running, so maybe one day I’ll laugh at saying it’s fun, but the classes just fly by and I feel on top of the world after
My favorite post of the month: Honeymooning in Yosemite – Vernal and Nevada Falls Hike – this is by far my favorite hike I’ve ever done! Being surrounded by nature and hearing the rush of the waterfall was pure heaven!
What I’m Up to: I got a library card recently, so now I’ve become a reading machine! I’ve been placing holds on books and I get so excited to check the library app to track my progress in the hold line. Very exciting times over here, ha!
What I’m working on: finishing the wedding posts. I originally thought it’d be a quick post with lots of pictures, but once I started writing, I couldn’t stop and had to tell the whole story
What I’m excited about: FALL! I finally got tickets to The Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze that I’ve been wanting to go to for years, so I’m very excited about that. I made sure to be ahead of the game on tickets this year because the weekend tickets sell out so fast.
What I’m watching/reading: I finished All The Things We Cannot Say and thought it was a great WWII book. I also read The Two Lives of Lydia Bird and The Silent Patient in less than a week I liked them so much. Next I’m reading The Lions of Fifth Avenue and Majesty.
We are watching Ted Lasso and really enjoy it, especially the Christmas episode! We are also on season four of Kim’s Convenience, perfect show to wind down to at night. We just got apple tv, so we are going to try out some of their shows next if you have any recommendations!
What I’m doing this weekend: I am in my best friend’s wedding and then Jon and I are flying down to Atlanta, hopefully we can fit a trip to the cider mill in between
What I’m looking forward to next month: decorating for Halloween! The decorations calling my name are getting louder by the day ha
What are you looking forward to next month?
