Hey there! Hope you had an enjoyable weekend! Ours was pretty low key but we did some fun things that were pretty quintessential New York. Remember when I told you about our trip to the U.S. Open? Well, apparently you can actually play tennis on the U.S. Open grounds! Who knew!? Tennis courts are a hot commodity in this city and to book space can be costly. This place was not cheap but we did get a reduced rate for going later in the evening. Plus, it was indoor, which is really hard to find.
I also broke out my baking skills this weekend and successfully made an Apple and Cranberry Crumble with all the apples we picked up last weekend apple picking.
I don’t know about you, but I am much better at cooking than baking. I’m not sure why. In theory if you are good at one you should be good at the other, but cooking is so much easier for me than baking. Luckily this Crumble came out really good! The recipe was from Gina at Skinnytaste.
I also cooked up some kale chips because I got the biggest bunch of kale at the farmer’s market last week. It was almost as big as my head!
It was such a nice day on Sunday so after brunch with some friends, the Hubs and I decided to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I did this a few years ago but the Hubs had never actually done it. I thought I could get some good pictures so we made our away across the famous landmark. The photos didn’t come out too bad!
Finally, I wanted to let you guys know about this awesome product that has recently launched in NYC by Kathryn Moos, a former professional soccer player and entrepreneur. She created VROU, a multi-vitamin drink aimed at helping women stay healthy and get more nutrients into their daily lives. VROU is full of antioxidants and electrolytes and tastes great (I know from experience!).
VROU is partnering with Plum Alley, an entrepreneurial site for women, to be one of the first companies to participate in Plum Alley’s new crowd funding platform. VROU is raising funds to support their next production run and expand their current flavor offerings, and in return supporters will be rewarded with VROU, VROU apparel, and other health and wellness packages and experiences. If you would like to support a female entrepreneur achieve her dream and help us stay healthy and well, you can visit her link to Plum Alley for more information and to become a supporter.
Oh and one last thing . . . GO SOX!
