I had a great time in New Jersey! And as always, the weekend went by too quickly.
It rained most of the day Sunday, so Lauren and I did some shopping for a baby shower gift at Short Hills. Such a fancy-schmancy mall!

After a few beers we picked up Izzy for a walk down by the waterfront. Jersey City is directly across from the downtown financial district/Battery Park.

Jersey City is also right near the Statue of Liberty.
For dinner we made scallops with herbed creamed corn. We had bruscetta for an appetizer.
Monday morning Lauren, Brett, and Jerry all went for a run in Central Park. They wanted to get in one more long run before the Boilermaker. I decided to walk through the park and take pictures.

I had such a wonderful time wandering through the park by myself. Central Park is such a unique place.
We ended the weekend with brunch at the Lighthorse Tavern and a wonderfully spicy Bloody Mary.
I am always sad when we leave New Jersey. My sister and I have so much fun cooking and shopping and laughing. I miss having my twin around every day. Luckily we get to see them both again soon, as they are coming up here next weekend to run the Boilermaker!
It seems like we have a million things going on this week. Bu I at least I managed to stock that empty fridge full of healthy food, and still have plans to fit a run in. Now I’m off to test out my new grilling basket!
