A Long Weekend Recap

Happy Tuesday lovelies!! This weekend brought much needed rest and relaxation after last week!! Friday night we went to a really cute restaurant in Washington Square called The Fireplace.  We shared the pan seared scallops with lobster hash and a side of garlicky broccoli and whipped mashed potatoes. It was delicious! It's really a cozy restaurant and has been a staple in Brookline for a while. We're pretty lame on Friday nights and what used to be going to bars until late in the night turned into a movie on the couch…but I seriously wouldn't trade it for the world. We watched Guilt Trip on Netflix and Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen were hilarious!!


They kindly split the portions for us

We had a pretty low key Saturday and joined some friends for sushi at their place! Sunday was Funday indeed!! Have you guys ever heard of Sky Zone? (Alexis's husband Jim opened one on Real Housewives of Orange County) It's basically a indoor trampoline park!! They are franchised…so it's a pretty safe bet there is one near you! The kids are separated from the adults, so you don't feel like you might hurt them - or I should say they won't trample all over you! We jumped for an hour and the amount of calories you burn is insane!! It was such a fun time, but to know you are getting your workout in as well was a double bonus!! 


Probably the cause of my soreness on Monday


This weekend I finally bit the bullet and purchased a red lipstick from MAC. I decided over the other brands, mostly because I wanted to be color matched. Ruby Woo is very matte (exactly how I prefer lipstick) and the lip liner is Cherry. It's a look I'll have to get used to, but for those nights I want to spice it up - this will be perfect!


I think we can all agree there is nothing quite like waking up a little late on a Monday knowing you aren't late for work!! We went to see Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and there were literally three other people in the theater.
Chris Pine was crazy good in this movie and if you are a fan of movies like Mission Impossible or any of the Bourne movies you'll love this. 

And just like that the weekend came to an end with some wine in my glass ready to watch The Bachelor! Just out of curiosity - do these women get at all mad when they potentially have to be the ones on the "risky" date i.e. bungee jumping or rappelling off a building?! I'm not sure how some of your first dates went, but none of mine involved risking my life!! 

Also did anyone else notice our girl the "Free Spirit" walked out of the rose ceremony with some Louboutin's in her hand!! For a girl who doesn't like clothes, she's got great taste in shoes! 

Hope you have a wonderful day!!

  2. I LOVE Fireplace in Brookline! It is so cozy and the food is amazing!! And I've always wanted to try one of those indoor trampoline places - I'm glad they separate adults and children because I'd definitely be afraid of hurting someone!!

  9. Definitely just visited the Sky Zone website to see if there is one near me and there is!!! I'm so excited - this sounds like my idea of a workout haha! I would be totally pissed if I was the girl that got stuck with the rappelling date. And I can't believe he took her out to lunch and stuffed her face and then told her to jump off a bridge! Why not lunch afterwards!?

  11. I didn't know Sky Zone was a chain! And here I was thinking Alexis' husband made it up out of thin air! I gave him too much credit! It does look awesome though.
