Weekends have just been flying by around here- feel like that's the way it goes in the summer!  This past weekend was no different.  Rich took half a day off on Friday, and we went to a great lunch spot in downtown Asbury Park, NJ called Brickwall Tavern.  We had a quick bite to eat outside before the rain came with Brody and Riley while Richie was in school.
Once we picked up Richie it was pouring...so what would we do with the kids on a rainy afternoon?  Well we decided to head to the movies and see Planes Fire & Rescue.  The boys had so much fun- they were glued to the movie the entire time!
Saturday, we joined friends for a fun dinner at Pascal & Sabine- a great French Bistro.  We enjoyed some great steak frites, moles frites and wine!  Sunday, we were exhausted and decided to head to the beach for a relaxing afternoon with some Chinese food.  The boys ran around in the sand...it was perfect!

The other highlight from the weekend was this delicious green power smoothie (recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis)...it was the perfect energy booster.
Recipe for Rise and Shine Juice:
Put the following ingredients in a blender
Bunch of Baby Spinach
2 apples
2 carrot sticks
2 celery sticks
1/2 lemon (juice and rind)
1 2-inch piece of ginger peeled

Hope you all had a nice weekend!  Here's details of the outfit I wore on Friday...most of it from TJ Maxx.  I just love that store...so many great finds at such smart prices!
