Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

NJ Diaries: Spring

Hello, sweets!!! Happy (almost) New Year!! Only two and a half days left to make 2014 memorable, are you ready for 2015? I can’t believe that the new year is literally right around the corner. I feel like I still have tons of things to do before I kiss 2014 goodbye. This holiday week has been really beautiful, I can only thank God for blessing us with time to see family and friends during this wonderful season. It’s been really hectic and crazy for A and I since thanksgiving, and I remember looking forward to to this week when he was at the peak of his 70hr schedule.

We spent the past week away from Baltimore — a much needed vacation for the both of us.

We spent 2 days in New York and a couple of days in New Jersey, it was the perfect way to celebrate this holiday season.

Since I am still behind my posts, I am going to share something that happened not too long ago in New Jersey.

We are very lucky that A’s parents like to eat. One of the places that we went to for dinner is A Touch of Italy.

It is a beautiful restaurant owned by a Greek restaurateur and his Italian wife.

Hot Peppers Fritti

Fried long Italian peppers. Too spicy for my dear life! Even I couldn’t handle it. haha

Considering that I have a higher tolerance with spicy food than A.

Super delish!

A ordered the clams, shrimp, and calamari in white wine sauce.

Very delicious!

Their homemade desserts were too die for! and I swear this is probably one of the best chocolate mousse brownies that I’ve had!

Super decadent and smooth. Aaaaah
