Scenes From the Weekend

Weekending
Doesn't it feel like on Friday you are ready to take on the weekend and then you blink and it's Sunday night? I'm pretty sure this time of year flies even faster because we all enjoy it that much more!! So as it turns out I miscalculated my vacation time and ended up with more days than I could carry over into 2015, so I needed to take a few more days off this month - I'm not complaining!! 
Thursday night my firm had their annual holiday party and this years theme was the carnival!! It was a lot of fun and one of the best parts was this caricature artist that created such a fun little piece to put up in our office!! 
Being able to go to a brand new Target when there are maybe 30 people in the entire store is pure heaven!! Having the cutest shopping companion around is even better!! 
We took it easy on Friday night and ordered take out and watched The Hundred-Foot Journey. It was seriously soooo good! I'm usually on my phone scrolling through pictures throughout the movie, but this one kept my attention the entire time!! Worth renting just because it makes you feel good after watching it!! 
Since it was really dreary on Saturday we thought it was probably best to finish the rest of our Christmas shopping and this included stocking up on lots of wine!! Side note: if you've never had Barefoot's Prosecco, you're missing out!! Such good bubbly!! They were having a crazy good deal that if you bought 6 you'd get a $15 rebate and they were already half priced...I call that a win!!  
I had my eye on a few things at MAC and I needed to replenish my Studio Fix powder I decided to pick up the pro long wear concealer since I've heard amazing things about it and after Carly raved about the brush cleaner I picked that up too! I'm embarrassed to say I don't clean my brushes nearly enough, but this cleaner is supposed to be an almost instant dry so I'm excited to let you know how it works! 
That night we headed to my friend Stephanie's housewarming party and wouldn't you know we both had fur on our minds!!! I thought it was finally time to take this Chicwish vest out for a proper night out and I'm so happy I did!! I really love it and it even though it takes a little while to get use to it being bulky, but it's a great statement piece!! 
There was also an extra large bear that Gary cozied up to!! 
My favorite Sunday's are productive ones and this past Sunday was just that! I was able to finish all of our wrapping!! Made my way to Charles Street which has some of the cutest little stores in Boston, it also happens to be my favorite street in the city! Not pictured the intense deep clean of the apartment that also took place!! 
Do you ever just crave some fast food, but don't want to put your body through the regret of eating it!! Well Sunday night we decided to make some Big Mac's and I used Natalie's version found here. These were delicious and so much better than the original!! 
Now it's Monday so it's time to shake things up!! Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week and don't forget to link-up to share your weekends with us

  4. I loved Hundred Foot Journey!
    You're right. It just sucks you in and you don't even realize what is going on around you the length of the movie.
    Your wine cart looks amazing! I am super impressed at that great deal!
    Enjoy your week, and all that wine. :)

  5. Ok, sounds like I need to rent Hundred Foot Journey soon! And loving your fur vest! So cute! I still need to find one... Not even going to lie, when you texted me the picture of that burger I thought for sure you guys were out at another awesome restaurant in Boston. Now I'm totally jealous you guys made those! They seriously look so delicious!! Happy Monday love!

  11. Looking forward to your review of the brush cleaner because I am seriously the worst about remembering to do that! Also, I'm now on a mission to track down Barefoot Prosecco - I'm a big fan of many of their ones but haven't tried that yet!

    ReplyDelete

  15. I don't clean my makeup brushes nearly enough either, but hey at least we do sometimes ;-)

    Yayyyyyy the Target is finally open! I'm shocked it wasn't mobbed, especially before Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  16. First of all, I want that burger like right now! haha, and SUPER awesome about having extra vacation days--that is definitely NOT a bad problem to have, at all!!
    I love an empty Target--and it looks like your has the new carts that has wheels that dont get all banged up--love!
    I've wanted to watch the 100 foot journey because it looks super cute! I'll have to make MG rent it or something so we can see it, now that I know it's really good! :)
    Glad you had a fun weekend, friend!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This looks like an amazing and FULL weekend. Okay, so I've been a vegetarian for four years... but that burger looks amazing. Like, unreal.
    I have never even heard of this unicorn empty Target - it's a dream scenario that I'm glad you got to experience! That vest is phenomenal - you look absolutely gorgeous and pull it off perfectly! :) Glad you had such an awesome weekend and took advantage of those surprise extra vacation days! (Lots of exclamation points in this comment, oops).

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aren't those Big Macs the best? Loved the 100 foot journey too. It was excellent! Dying over your vest! I've been looking for one and I like yours a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a fun weekend!! While deep cleaning isn't FUN, I always just LOVE relaxing in a very clean house! So satisfying!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I literally just spit my coffee out seeing Gary posted up next to that Santa bear. So many good things here! I can't wait to hear your makeup review, the vest looks great! I bet it's so warm. Definitely need to check that movie and those burgers. Fab weekend as always love! xoxoxo

  21. I have some days I still need to get int. It's great taking off in December. Always useful to take time off & get ready for the holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That cart full of wine makes me all sorts of happy! You look so cute in the fur vest. I've been wanting to watch the Hundred Foot Journey, we were actually supposed to see it last night, but the kids went to bed too late and there was no way I would be able to stay awake during the movie! Those Big Mac's look awesome! I need to try that recipe!! Glad you had a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a great weekend! Score on needing to take more vacation days! December is the perfect month for that, ha! I love work Christmas parties! It's my salon party is this week and I'm so excited! I may or may not be in desperate need of a girls night, HA! (This week is pretty sweet, I've got 2 girls nights planned PLUS a date with Eric... YESSSSS!)
    I've been wanting to watch Hundred Foot Journey! So glad you liked it!

  24. I want to rent that movie! For the next one, get ‘Chef’ from Redbox. It’s SO good!! Glad to know I’m not the only one that has a hard time concentrating during movies. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's a nice surprise about the extra vacation days! The caricature is so cute. I've never had one done before, but my boyfriend has and it turned out so funny! I really wanted to see The Hundred-Foot Journey when it was in theatre, but couldn't find anyone to go with (boo!). I should have just gone by myself. Definitely going to rent that one! Nice buy on the wine :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, you had such an amazing weekend! You looked killer in that fur vest, girl! Thanks for the tip on that brand of Prosecco - one of my favorite holiday drinks is Prosecco mixed with pomegranate juice. Yum! And, hooray for Mac Pro Longwear concealer! You are absolutely going to love it - looking forward to your thoughts on the brush cleanser, too. Happy Monday! xo

    ReplyDelete
  27. So jealous of your Target experience. I went to get a couple things on Saturday and it was a nightmare! It felt like it was the week of Christmas in there. Remind me to avoid shopping for the rest of the month! I hope you love the Mac concealer as much as I do! Loving the vest and the fact that you made Big Macs. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Girl, I am loving the look of that shopping cart (hello, wine!) and that burger! I have plans to make homemade burgers this week, too. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Loving your fur vest! And all of that wine!! Perfect for the bar cart :) Sounds like a great weekend!

  35. Looks like it was a great weekend!! Did you go to the new Target in Andover? I have been waiting for it to open. I love when a new Target opens. Oh Charles street is so fantastic!! I always walk it at lunch time. They have the cutest stores. Looking forward to hearing how you like the Pro Concealer from Mac. Been hearing alot about it lately.

  38. Love your new fur vest!!! I have been curious about that movie, I'll have to watch it some time. That picture with Gary and the bear is so funny haha. I'll have to try that concealer some time. I'm currently using a Bobbi Brown concealer and I like it, but I'm not in love. I'm glad that you had a nice weekend and I hope that you are having a great day so far!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's a great deal on wine! I saw that burger & instantly thought "oh man I've been wanting a Big Mac!" I think I have a recipe pinned to make my own but I haven't tried it. I definitely will now!

  47. Ahhh, so many things to comment on today... {lets see if I can remember them all}...
    1. I love the vest and I really wish I would have scooped up the one I saw a few weeks ago.
    2. I love the fact that you admit you usually scroll through your phone during movies. I do that too {even though I have a hard time admitting it to the hubs when he calls me out on it...}
    3. That wine looks so great! And the steal you got? That's incredible. Cheers!
    4. Your office party looks so fun. Great charicatures (spelling??).
    5. I wish you would come wrap presents for meeeee :(

  54. my parents who rarely see a movie in the theatre saw Hundred Foot Journey and highly recommend it. so if my parents paid money to sit in a theatre then it must be good and i have to rent it

  55. The burger looks fantastic! The characture is great... and I would LOVE to be one of only 30 people in ANY store this time of year :) Also, I love Boston- being up there over night was just enough to make me want to go back for some real time. And a baseball game or 6
