Another summer Friday…

Ugh is anyone else dreading the summer ending?! In the Northeast summer doesn’t end until after Labor Day, but it’s coming too fast. I still feel like there is so much I want to get done.

Here are my favorites for the past week:

Patriots Training Camp

It was an amazing day last Thursday to be at my beloved Patriots’ training camp! I was happy I got to wish Tom Brady a happy 40th birthday!

Saratoga Race Track

Track season really brings an amazing energy to Saratoga Springs. The history, the fashion and the betting are all something to see. I really do love this time of year!

Orangetheory Fitness

Ok so I started drinking the Orangetheory cool-aid! My best friend referred me to the new location that opened in our area and I have to say I really did like it. It’s a little expensive but I feel like I get my money’s worth out of the classes. Does anyone else like the Orangetheory method?

Game of Thrones

For those of you who don’t watch the show or have no idea what it is bare with me, there are three more weeks. (SPOILERS)


For diehard fans like myself….OMG THAT EPISODE ON SUNDAY!! I’m a huge stark fan so to see two reunions in sub sequential episodes is making my heart burst! Seriously the Area & Sansa scene is everything I’ve been waiting for for years! and then the battle scene…ugh so many emotions on who I don’t want to die/root for…

Sights of Summer

This may be an easy favorite, but I am taking in all the colors, sounds and smells of summer. Nothing like beautiful sunflowers to remind you of this invigorating season.

    My husband and son love to go to Eagles training camp but couldn’t make it this year. OTF is a great workout hope you enjoy it. It’s not easy either!

    So cool you got to go to training camp! I got to go to the Bengals one a few years ago and it was so fun and awesome getting to see the players up close! And yes to Orange Theory, such good workouts! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    Growing up in the northeast, I savored every last drop of summer and was never on the “omg fall needs to hurry up” train because fall meant winter was coming. So, I totally feel your pain! How neat that you got to go to the training camp, I can’t believe Mr. Brady is 40! Time flies! Happy Friday <3

    I don’t want summer to end! But I am excited for some football, so cool you went to Patriots training camp. And I finally took my Orangetheory Class this summer, I loved it, but I’m not the biggest fan of rowing. Have you heard of Barry’s Bootcamp? It’s just the treadmill and weights part of the workout and I really like that.

    I’d love to visit Saratoga Springs!
    I’ve been trying to pack in as much activity as I can for these last week’s of summer!
