Summer Reading

summerreading14

Here it is… my list of books to rad this summer, I like to make a list about everything and since I haven’t been reading that much, eh let’s refrase that… I have been reading the Games of Thrones books and I am in book 3, but I haven’t been reading anything else so I needed a change and a goal… I joined goodreads.com and I started reading different genres of books, I already read a few and these titles are in my next to read:

  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn | done!
  • Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman | reading…
  • The Vacationers: A Novel by Emma Straub
  • Straight Up and Dirty by Stephanie Klein
  • Hypocrite in a Pouffy White Dress: Tales of Growing Up Groovy and Clueless

My summer plan is lounge on the deck, the patio, the pool or the beach with a book and that’s what I have been doing so far… just relaxing with a good book!

Westminster Street Stroll

Fun eatery stroll for spring… The hubs and I did this little stroll last Spring and we are looking forward to do it again

I created a little map to show the progress of our Spring Stroll last year and added a bunch of other places that we should certainly try next time.

We walk to several eateries in the downtown area just to have a bite and enjoy their fun and atmosphere, we are totally spoiled in Providence, there are so many awesome places to eat and sometimes it’s hard to pick one, so we went to 5 of them in one afternoon.

We started at The Eddy’s and enjoyed a couple of absolutely perfect cocktails + their lobster roll, which was really good and the price was unbeatable! We hopped to Bodega Malasaña for more appetizers and to try something new, they have a fabulous selection of wines and a very knowledgeable and friendly bartender, we loved the place; we continued to Flan y Ajo, I have been wanting to go for dinner for the longest time… this was pure love, I love tapas and spanish food is probably one of my favorites, so I am biased to this place, we had Mejillones and Gambas al Ajillo, so flavorful!! the cons about this place it’s very small so it gets crowded really fast, but it is a must!

FlanyAJo

We were stuffed by the time we left Flan y Ajo, we had planned to stop at Gracie’s for dessert but it was too late, so we went to AS220 to end the night with the best Margaritas, I guess a different kind of dessert.

We are looking forward to doing this again and trying new places.

Easy Biking This Summer

The days of spring have arrived and I think I am ready! This is the simplicity that I am looking forward to have during the weekends.

I have my electra Gigi bike and I just bought this one too, the electra Townie for my kiddo, I think I will like to name her “Vera”. Going for bike rides will be in my weekend to-do list for the rest of this summer, starting this May as it is National Bike Month.

We are very lucky in Little Rhody, we have several bike paths and the closer one to me is the Blackstone Valley Bikeway, Spring and Fall are my favorites seasons to bike and it is always such a nice scenery too
