I was scrolling through my Instagram feed on June 14th, when I saw that my friend Samantha was posting photos from South Padre (THE BEACH <3). Jelly me commented "Soo fun! I wanna go next time!! 😋" .... and continued scrolling.
The next afternoon, my phone dings- I look and see a message from Samantha. "I'm planning a trip to NJ & NYC, wanna come!?" (I said HECC yeesssssss)
We arrived at Newark airport, and headed to Mahwah, NJ - where we'd be staying most nights.
Had the YUMMIEST dinner at a legit 'New Jersey diner' - where we would end up becoming regulars for the week, LOL.
We drove around and explored a bit, learning SO MUCH about NJ history. (v cool)
-had the BEST quiche of my life, toooooo.
Then headed out to Flanders, NJ- where a relative of Samantha's has a GORGEOUS home out in the woods. It was SO lush, so GREEN! Oh, also, there were black bears meandering around the yard. (not. kidding. that was so cool to see) 🐻
Next was a day trip out to Long Branch, followed by Seaside Heights- where we walked along the boardwalk, enjoyed delicious seafood and ice cream that melted SO, SO. FAST.
The rest of the afternoon we got our suntanning on at this GORGEOUS house on the bay.
I mean. <3
NEW YORK CITY
last but not least...
I know I'm so late to this party but I discovered acai bowls in NYC and now I'm so addicted. 😂
