Weekending | The Perfect Boston Weekend

Happy Monday friends!!! Thank you all so much for your sweet words about Gary's graduation! I was definitely a proud wife and we've had a great weekend celebrating!! Let's get right to it! 
I took about a 1,000 pictures of this guy as ge walked across that stage on Friday, but my favorite is the one as soon as he was walking out of the tunnel...it's like "I'm DONE!!"
 Friday night we went to The Palm steakhouse downtown! The wedge salad was top 3 in my entire life...the blue cheese mixed with walnuts was so good!! 
I had been waiting for Saturday afternoon all week...it was chocolate tour time! Thanks to Vimbly, Gary and I were able to knock off one of our Boston To-Do's. Vimbly allows you to search events, activities and just about anything that is going on in 18 cities (currently). The South End Chocolate Walking Tour is one of the most popular things to do in Boston and with 8 stops around my favorite neighborhood - it was 2.5 hours well spent! The best part is that we were able to take a lot of the chocolate home with us...they said "no chocolate left behind" so we followed directions! 
South End Chocolate Walking Tour
I loved that there was a variation of different types of chocolates to taste including sorbets and drinks - so it's not just chocolate bars you're eating! Since it's a walking tour, the guilt level sort of decreases with each step! 
Clearly not having indulged enough, we decided to round out the day with some sushi!! We recently starting adding brown rice to our rolls and it totally makes a difference!!
The Lawn on D
I can't even put into words how perfect Sunday was! The weather that day is the reason we go through winter!! We made our way to the Lawn on D. It's an outdoor event space with everything from LED swings to life-size Jenga! We had a blast playing like we were kids and I finally found a Jimmy John's here in the city!! My life is now complete!! I'm pretty sure we will be heading back every single weekend!  

Finished the night with a new recipe I'm sharing tomorrow and starting a new show on Netflix, The Fall...addiction worthy!! 
Link up below to share your weekends!! Hope you have a wonderful start to your week!! 

I was gifted the passes for the Chocolate Tour from Vimbly but all opinions are my own!

  72. Chocolate is one reason why I couldn't keep doing the vegan thing. It's one of those foods were only the real thing will do. No diet/vegan version is ever good enough.
