Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday lovelies!! I'm sure a lot of you are already enjoying this week off, if so, lucky ducks!! Remember I mentioned last weekend was the calm before the storm, this weekend was the first wave! 
My weekend started out a bit early because Friday afternoon I attended my department luncheon which was held at Blu Restaurant! We were all taking the views in thinking we were transported into NYC which I guess isn't that far off from the Boston skyline! 
That night our friend was having a little welcome back party at Highball Lounge. I've been to Highball a few times and each time I love it more and more! The bartender was on fire, quite literally...I joked that he was the best mixologist I've ever seen! 
Aside from your childhood games being readily available you can also write on the glass windows, which obviously I had to leave a shameless plug on!!  
My new favorite place in Boston has to be Assemble Row. Outlet shopping and nice restaurants all in one place = one happy girl!! We tried out Earls Kitchen + Bar and instead of the usual italian style calamari they make it a little more Mediterranean with greek yogurt and olives - so good! The Santa Fe chicken salad was equally amazing!
We made a pretty brilliant discovery at Trader Joe's this weekend and that was their French Truffle chèvre - out of this world good cheese!! This little package didn't make it past Saturday night since it served as our midnight snack later that night!! 
Gary and I were party animals Saturday night and after our first stop of the night on one side of Boston we made our way to say Happy Birthday/goodbye to my good friend Jess as she makes her way across the pond!! Sorry for the dazed looks on our faces, but a bright flash in a dark lounge makes us all appear a little drunky!! We had an amazing night at Bastille Kitchen and actually can't wait to go back and try some of their food! 
My sister & BIL had us over on Sunday to celebrate Christmas/Hannukah and one of the gifts I got my niece was her first sewing kit. Let's just say it was the blind leading the blind reading the directions!! 
And just like that it was Sunday night and I was able to end the weekend with a nice glass of wine in the new stems my sister gifted us for Christmas!! 

Don't forget...

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday and link up with Meghan and me to share your weekends with us!!

  2. Your weekend sounds just as jam-packed with family and friends and perfect as mine felt! So glad you got to spend the day with your family celebrating the holidays early. (P.S. I have a sewing machine and still have yet to use it, so I'd be the extra blind leading the blind leading the blind lol).
    You and your dress on Saturday looked fab!! The tights were worth the pain lol
    Your wine glasses are so pretty!!! So glad you had a great weekend girl! ;)

  22. Sounds like a whirlwind of a weekend! Love those monogram wine glasses - so pretty. I'm so bad at sewing too. We learned how in 7th grade home-ec class, but I can't remember. I can manage sewing on a button, but it's pretty haphazard. It's definitely not pretty. But that's a great gift! Hope you have a good week!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looks like a fun party! Love your purple dress! That color looks so pretty on you! I love your monogramed glass- I love things that are personalized! Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday season!

  26. That Boston skyline sure looks beautiful - we need to get out there one of these days! What a fun weekend - I think it's adorable that you gifted your niece a sewing kit! I'm sure she loved it. Oh, and your window drawing plug for your blog made me laugh for some reason - we need to publicize all we can get right?! Happy Monday, girl!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That view is beautiful. Love those monogrammed wine glasses too! How funny would it be for someone to comment on here "I found your blog/site after going to that bar." Haha. I can't sew at all. When I loose a button on a coat, I have to ask my parents for help lol. That food looks delicious, and I will have to look for that cheese at Trader Joes! I hope that you're enjoying your day so far too lady! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a great weekend! That food looks amazing! I loooove your wine glasses too :) What a great gift! I hope people found your blog from that. That'd be awesome!!

  31. What an amazing weekend! That cheese seriously sounds amazing but I don't know if I've ever met a bad cheese! I'm loving the elf quote! Now I want to go watch it for the 14th time this year! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a fun weekend!! Love Trader's Joe!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Calamari with a Mediterranean twist sounds so amazing right now. I feel like I always become insanely hungry after reading your weekend recaps. And that cheese, Trader Joe's has the best selection. Have you ever tried their dark chocolate cheddar? It's a lot better than it sounds.

  41. Hahaha, a little drunky! You guys look fine! I've seen worse (me). That's such a sweet gift for her - I got fabric swatches when I was younger and it completely inspired me. What if she becomes a famous designer! You can take all the credit for it! Lol.

  42. Chèvre is my absolute favorite! I haven't seen that in my local TJ's but I'll defintrly be on the lookout when I'm back in Crow. town for it! Gosh you had an absolute whirlwind weekend, looks both fun and exhausting! I totally love the wine glass as well- subtle but classy monogram.

  56. I just love olives so I am sure the calamari & olives were amazing. The skyline is pretty and I did not have Boston of my list of places to go - I am thinking I should change that.

  62. Per usual, so much good food. I probably make that comment every Monday but it's always true ha. That view of the city is stunning - one more reason to visit B-town!

    ReplyDelete
  63. It sounds like you had a real busy weekend and I am kind of sort of jealous! As a NYer, I would take the clean, hip city of Boston over the dirty, super crowded streets of Manhattan anytime. Haha Boston has always been my favorite city since I visited the first time as a little girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. SO LOVE your weekend recap. I am dying to get to Boston to try out these places! xo
