A Very New Jersey Weekend

2 May

There was a lot of excitement this past weekend beyond that lil’ old race I ran.  In no specific order, here are some of the highlights:

1.  Going to Wawa


Umm I think I was talking about this on Instagram for probably the entire month of April.  Dear Wawa, please extend your chain into Upstate New York.  Your coffee is the best gas station coffee I have ever had.  Love, Heather.


2. Going to Vincentown Diner

There was a lot of hype over this diner and I have to say, every word of it was true.  Typically when I go to diners I stick to breakfast food, but the menu here was really quite extensive and all of it sounded delicious.  I went with a Reuben, but also really wanted to try a few of their salads and burgers.  Next time, Vincentown.  Next time.  We all also gorged ourselves on dessert and basically waddled back to Hollie’s afterwards.  It was fantastic.

Sometimes we wear things that arent spandex.

3. Meeting Hollie’s fiance aka Fueledbyfuel aka Mr. LOLZ

He showed up with a box full of red velvet cake.  Enough said.

In all seriousness, it was great to get to know Tim a little bit and I don’t think he was too offended by our ridiculousness.  Though we did ask him to take quite a few photos …

Setting out for a nice 6 miler around Hollies neighborhood.

4. Learning about gypsies

There are some amazing shows on TLC.  I’ll leave it at that.


5. Going to yet another diner post-race

Get in my face immediately.

They put my eggs on top of my french toast and for some reason, I thought this was the greatest idea ever.  I’ll blame low blood sugar.


6. Spending time with two of the most fun people on the planet

Saying our goodbyes.

Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before our next adventure.


Where was the last place you road-tripped to?  Do you love New Jersey diners as much as I do?

      Ahh that’s awesome! Go Wawa.

      That is quite a road trip, I’m impressed. I start getting very antsy after about 5 hours of driving, haha.

    I had such a fun time and wish every weekend was like this. I’m literally sitting at home on Friday, sad, because it isn’t like last Friday.
