Weekending Snaps

Welcome back to Monday friends! Feels like we blinked and the weekend was over, which makes coming back to the start of the week even harder because of all the fun that we had! 
Low key Friday nights call for wine, m&m's, magazines and a movie! We rented Woman in Gold with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds and it was amazing!! It's based on a true story of an Austrian woman (Mirren) trying to get back a family painting that was taken during WWII and Ryan Reynolds plays her attorney! Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend! 
Since it was so beautiful on Saturday we decided to make our way to the Charles River Esplanade to have lunch and enjoy the weather. It always makes for some great people watching especially since you can see people learning to sail and a puppy paddle boarding - I've officially seen it all! 
That night we celebrated our friends 30th birthday with a little cookout!! 
Stocked bar and fun times with friends made for quite the night!! Not pictured - the epic corn hole battle we lost even though Gary was able to make 4 bags in the hole in one turn! 
Sunday was spent poolside at my sister's house!! It was a hot one and the Italian Ice didn't last too long - which was fine since I practically inhaled it! 
 Even though the Nordstrom Sale is going strong, I couldn't help but take advantage of a few steals I found at Ann Taylor and Target. I snagged the blouse and shoes this weekend when Ann Taylor was having 60% off full priced items and an extra 50% off sale items...the shoes were by far the best deal ever, under $25 and they feel as if I'm wearing the comfiest pair of sneakers! 
I'll be taking this quote to heart this week as it's a pretty big week for Bespoke Boston Weddings as we have our first wedding this coming weekend! Hope you have a great start to the week!  Link up below to share with us!

  12. Seeing that Italian ice makes me smile because on Saturday was free 711 slushy day and I've never had one in my life and Mark was determined to get me one like I missed out on something in my childhood. We got it and I was "this tastes like an Italian ice....nothing groundbreaking" anyways.....Boston in the Summer......no better city right?

  13. I haven't had Luigi's in forever! Ahh I want one now!

  37. All of these sales have been making it so hard for me to behave! I need to start buying for fall... or so I'm telling myself.

    That paddle boarder with the dog would have made my day!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Aw, the puppy paddle boarding! I wish my dog would get on board with things like that. I tried to bring her in a kayak once. It didn't work out, panic ensued before we even got into the water. Looks like you had a fabulous weekend!

  39. I actually just saw the preview for the first time for that movie and it looks super good! I need to redbox it. Ryan R is my FAV!! Love that you went paddle boarding. I went about 2 years ago and it was so much fun but the waves were rocky - can't wait to try again in little calmer waters :)

  52. I haven't had that Italian ice in forever - reminds me of childhood for sure! I've actually seen many dogs on paddle boards, and they're so cute in their little doggie-life-vests! My dogs would NOT be impressed by that... They both hate water. Weirdos!

    ReplyDelete
  53. That movie sounds excellent! Mmm birthday cake m&m's, I have never tried those but they look so yummy! Love your shopping finds!

    ReplyDelete
  54. who doesn't love lowkey nights? I have to check out that movie, we rewatched Hunger Games Catching Fire. I forgot how good it was. How nice is it to spend time at a pool? Haven't hit a pool or a beach all summer, definitely long over due for one.
