Weekending Around Boston

Happy Monday Lovelies!! We're in the home stretch before a super long weekend...that is unless you're one of the lucky ones to have this week off - in which case...I'm slightly jealous!! The weekend before Christmas came down to these fun times!
I'm going to sound like a broken record here, but seeing the city all lit up is just the best!! We had to stop and take a selfie in front of the tree at Faneuil Hall before going to a welcome home party for a friend of ours from London! 
Boston Sugarfina Store
The people at Sugarfina must have known that I was deeply obsessed with their gummy bears because the Boston store opening was on Saturday! I scooped up a few boxes of the champagne gummy bears and it's pretty safe to say if you're on my Christmas List you'll be getting this sweet treat!! 
Oh and if you happen to be in the market for a Tesla you can sign up for a free test drive at the store front...can't wait for ours!! No, we are not buying one for ourselves....LOL!
We had our final Christmas party on Saturday night and our friends hosted us with so much good food!! 
Brother's Restaurant Brookline
Sunday brunch was at a new to us place, Brothers Restuarant! I'm not sure how I made it this far in life without having tried french toast, but challah french toast is amazing and we'll be going back!
Also got to watch my favorite holiday movies - The Elf & The Holiday...this time of year is the best!! 
Starting the week with these two quotes!! How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!

  1. Ugh, I'm not even one of the lucky ones that get's a super long weekend. I only have off Friday :( Oh well. All the lights in Boston are so pretty! And that French toast looks amazing! I had never had French toast until recently either so you aren't alone there. Happy Monday love! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. SO excited it is almost Christmas! Looks like you had a great weekend. So awesome that store just opened by you...very convenient! I love french toast, although I never order it. I think I am just too biased towards my mom's french toast. It looks so good though! Love the first quote at the bottom...it is so true!
