Below are just a few highlights from my week, hope you enjoy 🙂

Pizza Dates

A couple times a month AJ and I have pizza date nights. We’ve been making our way around local eateries based on the list of 101 Best Pizzas in America I wrote about in this blog post.

We’ve gone to Rubirosa, which I think has been my favorite so far. Just thinking about their stuffed artichoke and vodka pizza makes my mouth water! We’ve also visited Motorino, Roberta’s, and last night we stopped by Don Antonio’s.

We split the Antonio Starita’s specialty (pictured in front), which is a lightly fried pizza dough topped with tomato sauce, smoked buffalo mozzarella cheese, and some basil. It was cooked in a wood-fired oven, and I could definitely taste that smokiness!

The second pie we dug into was the Ricotta pizza (pictured in back), which was our favorite – tomato sauce topped with homemade mozzarella, fresh ricotta, pecorino romano, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

The Skimm

How do you guys get your news? If you’re anything like me, you might put on a news show in the morning and pretty much rely on Facebook or BuzzFeed throughout the day.

About a year ago I signed up for theSkimm and it has been a news game changer. Started by two young women with a background in journalism and a desire to present the news with a contemporary twist, theSkimm is a daily e-newsletter delivered to your inbox every weekday morning.

They present the day’s top headlines in a brief, succinct manner, with some side commentary that usually gets me smiling. It’s a great way for me to catch up on the latest events while eating breakfast or commuting to work.

Apple Cider

What would this season be without a little apple cider? I picked some up at my local grocery store and have been loving a little taste of fall every night! You know what, I’m not the biggest fan of hot apple cider, what about you guys? I think it’s because I grew up drinking it chilled and that’s what I’m used to.

Nights In

I always love nights where I don’t have plans and can just enjoy a quiet night in, decompressing from the day and being able to get to bed early. I know, party animal. I’ve also been loving Primetime TV lately! Some of our favorite shows include Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Big Bang Theory, Grandfathered, Life in Pieces, and of course, Modern Family.

This is my favorite nightly view ❤

J.Crew Quilted Jacket

You guys probably saw a lot of my new J.Crew Factory Quilted Jacket in my You’ve Got Mail  post, but I cannot tell you how much I am loving it this season! It is super soft, fits perfectly, and I just think it’s super cute. We’ve had some chilly days lately and it’s been keeping me nice and cozy warm.

(I’m also obsessed with my J.Crew leopard sneakers on my feet here!)

And that’s it for this week – I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! 😎
