Greetings friends! I’m coming off of a wonderful weekend spent with one of my oldest besties down on Long Island. It was such a great weekend- we hit up Trader Joe’s, lululemon and, my favorite, had afternoon tea at the Garden City Hotel. The hotel was all decked out from the holidays and looked gorgeous!
Nicole looking festive!
Nicole and her husband have a thing for polar bears. This display was very fitting for them 😀
It was nice to catch up over traditional afternoon tea. We were probably the youngest in there by about twenty years, but no matter 😀 We were reliving our trip to London (which was almost four years ago- time flies!) when we had afternoon tea in a quaint hotel/shop. The tea usually involves your tea of choice (Nicole opted for delicious hot chocolate) and then finger sandwiches, scones and little treats.
The scone was absolutely delicious, but I think the star of the show were the little bite size treats. Seriously delicious.
Yum!!! I love me some lemon meringue.
Have you ever had afternoon tea? I love it! All in all it was a fabulous weekend. We even made it to the gym twice and I got two runs in. It felt great to run and sweat after being out of commission all week with a cold! I have hot yoga tonight and I am so excited- it’s been a week since my last class and I can definitely tell 😉
Since Bailey’s birthday is on Christmas, I saw this at the mall and couldn’t help myself:
Cute little Santa! He is very ashamed of his outfit but I think he secretly likes it. Except when the hood is on. Then he just stands there like a statue and refuses to move. I was very happy to see his little face again last night 🙂
Have a great start to the week, friends!
