Weekend Snaps

Back at it again after a truly beautiful weekend here in Boston! I was able to see my mom on Friday for a few hours before she headed back to Florida and there is just something about hugging your mom that makes everything better! Not to mention one of the benefits to this whole blogging adventure is that after posting some current faves/wants the perceptive people in your life pick up on it!!
Check out these beautiful white lace shorts my mom bought for me in the South of France. When I asked her where she got the idea, her response, "you posted about it on your blog!!" She's a sneaky one, that mama!!
Gary and I have the occasional weekend where one day we have nothing on the agenda - no place that we have to be and nothing that needs to be done! On those days we love to just stroll through the city!! The Public Garden is one of the most beautiful places in the spring/summer to walk through because all the flowers are in bloom!!

I've had a lot of requests in recent months for things to do in Boston and I'm thinking of starting a series, similar to what Carly does over at Carly Blogs Here just to showcase some of the great things to do in Boston!  Let me know if that's something you guys might be interested in! 

One of the things I find I never have time to do is clean my make-up brushes...well with the help of Lauren Conrad and some spare time on Sunday night I finally cleaned them!! It always amazes me how much gunk accumulates on them...

To round out this random post, my first race is this coming Sunday and I've been trying to get as many runs outside as possible, which is pretty hard with the unpredictable weather!!
I'm by no means an avid runner, but with over 20 miles this past week, I was happy with an easy paced 2.5 mile run!! The original photo had my running path and then I got freaked out thinking someone would find out where I ran...I'm sure not a completely irrational fear! 

I'll leave you with two of my favorite mantras for this Monday!!

Hope you guys had fabulous weekends!!

  1. Love those shorts! Glad to hear you had a good time with your mom even though it was cut short! I was just saying this weekend how Boston is at the top of my list of cities to visit in the USA so I say Yes to the serious! Maybe I should start a Charleston one?!

  7. Those shorts are so cute!! And how adorable she told you to blog about them :)) Love it!
    Weekends where nothing is planned are my favorites! That garden is just beautiful!
    Cleaned my makeup brushes this weekend too - I try to do it at least once a week because they work so much better when they are clean! ;)

  10. Ooh I need to clean my makeup brushes too. Love when blog favorites turn into real life gift favorites!! :)

  11. Those shorts are awesome, what a great gift!

    Makeup brush cleaning is so quick and easy, but it's something people rarely think of doing. I faithfully clean my brushes once a month.

    Happy Monday!

  14. How cute that your mom reads your blog and got the idea for the shorts from it!!! :D And I totally agree... sometimes there is just NOTHING that beats being in your mom's arms. :)
    I get SO GROSSED OUT when I see the shit that comes off of my makeup brushes. BLECH! (Also, it's deeply satisfying at the same time, haha!)

  15. Great job on your run! And how sweet of your mom. She has great taste (in blogs and clothes!). :)

  16. Love those shorts and that is totally not an irrational fear! I would have the same fear.

  17. Sometimes I get so lazy about washing my brushes that I'll use my fingers for my foundation and use cream products so I don't NEED to use any brushes-- even though my makeup always looks so much better when I use brushes! haha Laziness to the fullest I guess! Those white shorts will be so cute for summer! I can't wait to see how you style them. And I would love it if you did a Boston series on your blog! I love learning about new cities!

    ReplyDelete
  18. bahahahaha girl I would have done the same thing cutting off my run....I mean people be crazy right? ;-) Those shorts are perfect! Especially because you can be like "yah no biggie my mom got them for me from France". It always amaze me/grosses me out every time I clean my makeup brushes! Yes to Boston highlights you know I love seeing the city!

  19. LOVE those shorts!!! Ugh, I cleaned alllll of my brushes yesterday. I try to clean them every weekend, but it takes me so long haha. You should definitely start that series too, your city looks amazing and I'd love to see more. Maybe one day we can visit Boston!

  26. Those shorts are so pretty I love them! They would look so cute with a bright colored top. I'm glad that you got to hug your mom and enjoy some nice weather this weekend too. Love those tulips! Nice work on the running too. My husband is a runner and always asks me to run with him. I kindly decline haha. It's just not my thing, and he runs way too fast for me to keep up!!

  27. nice work on the running! i did so much walking for work last week, my feet would scream at me if i went for a run. but i am totally loving this weather for outdoor exercise! love the shorts--i have a pair from tjmaxx that's really similar

  38. Love those shorts!! How sweet of your mama to remember & grab them for you. Seriously loving Boston!! I didn't have any expectations coming here, but I'm so smitten with this city. Austin is amazing, so when I like another big city, it's a big deal. :-)

  41. I vote yes for the Boston series! And how cute that your mom bought you those shorts in France! I rarely clean my brushes and everytime I do I understand why my skin acts up. Now I'm cleaning them once a week. It could be a good sunday night tradition. ;)
