If you need a Hump Day pick-me-up (via coffee or carbs), might I suggest Dead End Bakehouse?? Finally got to try it out after literal months of talking about it with a friend — making plans as adults is hard, okay?
Unbothered ☑️ Moisturized ☑️ In my lane ☑️ Well-hydrated ☑️ (thanks @vitaminwater) Flourishing ☑️ *** Only a week into the New Year and my first flight of the year has come and gone. Oahu next!
Camelback Mountain in Tannersville, PA
Looks like a winter wonderland but really it's been so warm here that it's all fake snow! Sorta felt like snowboarding through instant mashed potatoes but the mountain still kicked my old butt.
Pocono Pines, PA
Enjoyed a low-key New Year's Eve in the mountains with family. Also found out that when we were kids, the adults would turn the clocks forward so we'd go to sleep before midnight, but I still love them.
Cold Spring Brewery in Cape May, NJ
The holiday season looks good on @coldspringbrewery. Can't say the same for the band-aid on my thumb which is covering a nice gash I got in a severe gift opening accident…
The Mad Batter Restaurant & Bar in Cape May, NJ
Friendsmas brunch and a quick visit to the beach to enjoy an uncharacteristically warm winter day. I think Mad Batter might be my favorite breakfast spot in all of NJ!
Ludlam Island Brewery in Ocean View, NJ
Finally got to try a pint of the @sierranevada x @ludlamisland Resilience IPA! If you haven't had a chance to get it yet, whatcha waiting for? NJ friends, for a list of breweries offering it, check out my blog post.
Braving the cold to show Sinead the ropes when it comes to flying my little DJI Spark! Thank you Wawa coffee for keeping me warm.
Friendsmas in Northfield, NJ
If I'm holding a shot in my hand you know it's a special occasion... Friendsmas!! May have had a 2-day hangover (thanks, @captainmorganusa) but the friendship was worth it
Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall in Atlantic City, NJ
Pretty sure the new @tennavebeerhall has more beer options than any other bar in AC combined and I am h e r e for it. They wouldn't let me take my beer glass outside — but did lend me this lovely red Solo cup, which is at least festive
Made Chocolate Bar in Atlantic City, NJ
Alcohol + chocolate = yes please! @made_acchocolate makes their chocolate in house and then tops that by infusing their drinks with it. I got the chocolate mintini that came with the best fresh-made thin mint. My favorite part about this Instagram is making all of my friends wait to sip their drinks so I can take a picture.
Bourre in Atlantic City, NJ
Some people find painting peaceful — I am not one of them. I'm a perfectionist to a fault so paint nights are always a stressful experience… but this tequila drink helped me through it!
