The weekend in pictures.

This weekend, my sister, Meg, came to visit me and my sister, Bryn.  We had lots of fun... and lots of food!  The only thing missing was our oldest sister, Lauren.

We headed out to Maplewood, NJ...
for an amazing vegetarian dinner (portobello mushroom sandwiches,mixed greens and roasted sweet potatoes) with old friends...
and their new additions.

A train ride to Long Island for an Easter celebration with extended family.

Brunch at Bubby's in Brooklyn... Mom & Dad's treat.  Thank you!

A walk on the Promenade in DUMBO.

Ice Cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
I didn't have any but I found this sign amusing...

Manicures. We all got the same color. Color Club's Peace Out Purple...Love it!  We forgot to take a picture of all of our nails but here is one I found online to show you the color.

A quick stop at a friends rooftop deck.

Dinner on the roof at Alma
We shared vegetable fajitas.

Shopping.  Meg and I found a great dress on sale for $20 at the Gap and we all got the same shirt from Joe Fresh. Then, lunch at the New York landmark, Lombardi's...
and a bite-size treat from Baked by Melissa.

I made my favorite vegetarian tacos for everyone for dinner before heading off to Pier 40 to watch Bryn and Arnel play soccer.

Despite all of the eating we did, I still finished Week 1 down 2lbs and with 5 workouts logged.  I hardly checked my email all weekend (which felt amazing and liberating) but I have to admit that I do have some anxiety about catching up and replying to all of them now.  This would be a great time for me to start practicing that meditative yoga I was thinking about...

Have a great day!
