Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s about to be the end of July. Where is the summer going? It’s flying, that’s for sure! This month has been busy, busy, busy. I traveled back and forth to New York for a few weeks to help my mom recover from her knee surgery, and then had a little travel going on!
Norwich Inn Spa
Before my Austin trip this past weekend, I spent a few days at the Norwich Inn Spa for our annual girls trip! It was so much fun and so relaxing. We always do dinner at Mohegan Sun which is super close by, so we spa all day, then do dinner and drinks at night! Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse was seriously amazing!
The workout we did at the spa gym:
I spent last weekend in Austin with a few of my favorite girlfriends- Cassy, Juli, and Vanessa, and our Siete foods family! We stayed in an amazing AirBnb, ate awesome food, and had countless laughs! You guys, I bought cowboy boots from Allen’s Boots (see below) and am seriously in love. Also, I signed a few copies of my cookbook at the Barnes and Noble on Brodie Lane, so go snag them before they’re gone!
We ate at:: Picnik (multiple times), Fresa’s, 24 Diner, Flower Child, Veracruz All Natural, Fortworth, and an amazing cookout at Siete Foods HQ!
We stayed: In an AirBnB, and if you saw our IG stories, our last night we stayed in a hotel like 30 minutes outside of the city thanks to Vaness. It was hysterical.
Workouts: We did a workout made up by coach Ju (Juli) at Siete HQ and did a Crush Fitness class and they were both awesome. I was sufficiently sore! Also, shout out to Outdoor Voices for hooking us up with a pair of workout leggings!
