Happy Tuesday everyone!! There is something so wonderful about starting the work week on a Tuesday, extra long weekend and a short work week!!! This weekend I put relaxation at the top of my priority list and everything else sort of fell to the bottom!
With a beautiful night ahead on Friday it was only fair to enjoy the weather with some beverages in an outdoor garden! We stumbled upon this gem a few weeks ago and it's going to be our go-to for the foreseeable future!
Saturday morning I knocked one of my Summer bucket list items off the list and purchased some fresh basil and fresh mint - now let's see if it stays alive! I've already added the basil to some fresh pasta we made last night!
After running around town and a particularly fantastic workout (yes it included four sessions of the 7 minute workout) I thought we deserved some Italian!! We went to Pastoral in Fort Point and can I just say I wish we ordered two servings of the salumi meatballs and stuffed fried olives - incredibly delicious!! Gary had the ricotta dumplings and I had the prosciutto buffalo mozzarella pizza - molto bene!!
On the walk home we decided to stop into the new Roche Brothers that opened up in Downtown Crossing and picked up a few of their mini desserts! It was hard to say no to this raspberry cheesecake and as you can imagine it didn't stand a chance when we got home! Side note: if you have Netflix please watch The Fall - we finished both seasons and can't wait for the third one this year!! I think after watching the series I understand the casting of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey!
We spent Sunday afternoon at my sister's house for an early Memorial Day BBQ. I had a few people ask about my shorts and they are from Ann Taylor and currently 40% off, they also come in yellow!! Fun fact about my family - the ladies are pretty epic ping pong players - probably because my mom taught on the national team back in the Ukraine (I'll let that one sink in) and my sister is all sorts of amazing!
We hit the road early on Monday to celebrate Memorial Day, Gary's graduation and my nephews birthday at my SIL's.
It was a wonderful day and who doesn't love a little relaxation on a hammock! Surprisingly or I should say thankfully, we didn't hit any traffic on the ride back to Boston, which made for an extra few hours to relax on Monday night!
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday and link up below to share your weekends with us!!
