Weekend Happenings

Weekending

Happy Monday lovelies!!! We had the most laid back, but fun weekend!! I spent entirely too much time trying to finish reading Gone Girl so that we could see the movie, but that didn't happen...hopefully next weekend I can finally see it. One major to-do was knocked off the list this weekend as I finally dropped my wedding dress to be cleaned!! If you're thinking of doing this - price shop around so that you get the best deal!
When the weather is gross you eat!! And eat we did - pizza du jour at The Abbey
Since it was still pretty gloomy Saturday night , we decided to make our way to a comedy show. My favorite part of going to Dick Doherty's are the three different comics they feature.  I think you can always expect a little crudeness, but the second guy literally made me blush! 
Sunday morning starting out the best way I know how with tea, coffee and a chocolate croissant! 
We made our way to the Arboretum to take in the most perfect Fall day! If you ever visit Boston make a stop here - as long as it's not in the Winter, this is worth the trip! 
It was like we were transported into the French countryside. 
Getting past feeling like a lumberjack in my flannel. 
We rounded out out day in the best way possible way with the pasta recipe I posted on Friday!! The sauce was delicious and so easy!! I highly suggest making it!! 
How was your weekend? Link up with  me and Meghan to share!! Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!!

  5. All the food looks amazing. I need to re-read Gone Girl before I see the movie though I heard the ending is different in the movie. It is so pretty here in the Fall and the Arboretum is no exception.

  8. Those pictures from the arboretum are really making me wish I had gone to the park to read this weekend instead of putting on my sweats to watch football all day. Looks like a great weekend.

  9. Loving those arboretum pics - such a great fall outing! Your Sunday morning looks very similar to mine haha...but that's what weekends are for!

  10. What a great weekend! Comedy clubs are so fun, but I agree that they sometimes can get out of hand and just embarrassing depending on the comic. Your pasta dish looks like it turned out great! It also looks like you had some perfect fall weather by you - it was downright freezing here. Happy Monday, girl!

    I love going to the comedy club! It is always such a fun date night!

  19. Oh em gee your weekend sounds perfect!! I've been dying to get out to a comedy house with the hubs for years. We used to go all the time when we were in college! And I cursed our small little town over the weekend because I was dying for a chocolate croissant but no where in town had one! I almost ALMOST made my own haha!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Those chocolate croissants look amazing! Don't laugh.. I had never heard of Gone Girl until this past weekend, and now all I want to do is read the book before seeing the movie :-D

    ReplyDelete

  40. I'm usually not a big meat on my pizza person but that pizza looks SO good- all I can think about now for dinner is pizza and it's 10am! It looks like you guys had a great weekend- love your flannel shirt! We didn't see Gone Girl yet either-- I think we're going to try and go on a week night to maybe avoid some of the crowds, but we'll see!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok with all of the hype about this movie, I definitely need to get my hands on this book! That pizza looks so delicious. It sounds like you had such a perfect weekend.

  49. I definitely am enjoying relaxing weekends more these days compared to the crazy busy ones that leave me exhausted on a Monday. Yumm now Im craving pizza with lots of good toppings. Looks like you got better weather on Sunday and a great day to be outside.

    ReplyDelete
  50. We saw Gone Girl this weekend (I haven't read the book yet), and it was sooo good! You'll have to let me know what you think once you see it. Yay for dropping the dress off to be cleaned!

  52. I still haven't read the book yet, but I definitely want to before seeing the movie. I've done that before where I see the movie before reading the book, and the movie ends up ruining the book for me! Has that happened to you??

    You look GORGEOUS in that plaid! No lumberjack here.

    Glad you had a great weekend girl!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my gosh the food in this post. Seriously....I am on this diet for my chronic illness and it's killing me! Also I really want to see Gone Girl!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That pizza looks amazing! I love The Abbey, you can never go wrong there! I saw Gone Girl this weekend and it was soo good, I hope you finish up the book this week!

  55. Sounds like just the perfect weekend and love that the trees are starting to change!! That pizza looks droolworthy by the way.

  57. Looks like a fun, relaxing weekend. I want to see Gone Girl, but I want to try to read the book first as well (haven't started yet). Jelly of your Fall weather! Florida is coming around, but definitely not quite there yet!

  59. 'Twas the weekend for flannel... Love it! And comedy shoes are such a fun date night.. And I don't know how they get away with some of the dirty stuff they say but if it makes me laugh, then it's okay by me! Xo

  61. I LOVE your flannel, you look so cute! It's not *quite* cool enough here to wear mine yet, although I was close to putting it on this weekend. That place looks beautiful, I would love to visit Boston someday!

  62. Your weekend looks amazing. The two things I want to apply to my weekend was your pizza and the gorgeous greenery on your way to the arboretum!

  73. I found your blog via a link up from another blog, so really a VERY happy accident. Love this post, love Boston. I love more than anything that your man-friend has a UMaine hat on!!! How was/is Gone Girl? I too, need to read the book before watching the movie. However, my to-read list is already miles long!

    ReplyDelete
