To be really honest I can't remember the last time I had a wonderful week filled with laughter and smiles. Life lately hasn't been filled with my finest days; however working with a Life Coach has really started to impact the way I view life and moving forward in a positive direction. I have been doing a lot more private writing and talking with friends and family about how I feel and where who I am. I've even had a few deep conversations with myself.
With all that said, this past week has been so much fun!
Last Friday I headed out to a local town, Red Bank in Monmouth New Jersey to walk around and take some photos. I had a wonderful afternoon window shopping and sitting near the marina watching the sailboats. Check out some of the photos.
Saturday night my family headed to dinner in New Brunswick. We decided on a new to me cuisine and yes I now have a major itch to visit New Orleans. We ate at Old Bay Restaurant, New Brunswick's Finest Craft Beer Bar & Restaurant. Dinner with my sister, her BF, dad, and his fiance is always a good time. We don't always get together often, so when we do it always a catch up fest.

We started with delicious Mini Crab & Shrimp Cakes and BBQ Pork Sliders. By the time I was ready to take a picture it was to late as we inhaled the starters. My dinner was simple; Mango Shrimp Salad. I love mango salsa and shrimp so this was a no brainier for me.
"Let's walk a short block to Thomas Sweet" when in reality it was more like 6 blocks and I wore wedges, not planning to walk more then 10 feet to the car. It was all OK once I realized they brought back one of my favorite flavors, Chocolate Oreo with Marshmallows!
Sunday I spent the day at the beach. Even with high tide all day we manged to have a great time just relaxing my Aunt and I. I even managed to burn again after multiple coats of sunscreen. It is inevitable for me to not get burnt.
Monday-Wednesday was spent working and I had a conversation with someone I had put for some time now. I felt amazing once the conversation as had and once I spoke with my family about it. So much so that I am really starting to feel more confident and strong, traits other's saw in me but I couldn't in myself.

Wednesday night I had dinner with friends I hadn't seen in a while. It was so nice to catch up and laugh throughout the evening. Check out this post on Instagram!
Ever since watching American's Kerri Walsh Jennings & April Ross in the Olympics I have been dying to get back on the sand to play some volleyball. Last night I joined a local meetup that was getting together to play for fun. Let's just say I didn't know how out of shape I was. I woke up this morning sore as can be. While I only lasted an hour it was great to get out there. I didn't know anyone so I was more impressed I got the nerve to join! Next up is playing tennis again!
Today I saw a friend in from Florida! Looking forward to my last weekend at the beach! I can't believe next weekend is Labor Day. This summer really flew by!
Any fun plans this weekend?
