Looks like I'm somewhere exotic, but it's only 20 minutes from my hometown! Who knew NJ had palm trees?
The Pool After Dark at Harrah's in Atlantic City, NJ
Tried to see Johnny Bananas and Cara Maria from MTV’s The Challenge at The Pool but unfortunately the stars didn't align.
Times Square in New York, NY
Real New Yorkers know to steer clear of Times Square if you value your time and sanity. I'm not a real New Yorker, but I do know enough to at least get there before sunrise to avoid the camera-wielding tourists.
Chelsea Piers in New York, NY
Had a great time at The Girls' Lounge Dinner at Advertising Week! Got to hear from some incredibly talented and inspiring women. Proud to be there representing YourTango!
Took advantage of the absolutely gorgeous fall weather with a bike ride and little picnic by the water. This is probably the last week we'll see true beach weather, and I plan to soak up the sun and warmth every day possible!
R and J Farms in Egg Harbor City, NJ
Resumed my duties as the permanent odd wheel for Katie’s pumpkin picking birthday sesh! Today I learned corn maze crossword puzzles are extremely difficult and if I hadn't had this Gatorade I probably would've passed out inside the maze.
Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ
The moments you want to run away from yourself are the moments you need to spend the most time with yourself. I won't speak for everyone but I know I have a habit of stretching myself too thin, saying "yes" too many times, and getting so caught up in the needs of others that I lose sight of my own. Opted for a little staycation with a floor-to-ceiling view of my favorite scenery (the beach) to clear my head and press restart.
Phillies Game at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA
Scored these bangin' seats as part of that Phillies yoga deal and had a great time at the game! Why is it that baseball stadiums have the best hot dogs?
South Philadelphia, PA
There's nothing particularly exciting about this location. Or this beer, if I'm being honest (sorry, Modelo!). But this post-monsoon sunset was too good to not capture.
After a week+ of nothing but rain (honestly forgot sunshine was even a thing), we finally lucked out with perfect boat weather. This time last year, we had taken the boat out multiple times. But this summer was full of rain, so we're grateful to have gotten this one day in!
Resorts Craft Beer Festival 2018 in Atlantic City, NJ
Hit up the craft beer fest at Resorts with Dustin (who always has the right words to describe a beer's tasting notes) and Ryan (who doesn't particularly like beer but will always say yes to an excuse to drink). And I only got carded once!
Tilton Fitness in Northfield, NJ
After taking a few months away from the gym (partly due to a hectic schedule, but also partly due to laziness) I've finally gotten back to some consistency. Even though it means waking up at 6AM, this gym is always exactly how I like it: totally empty!
