Weekending into March

Happy Monday and happy leap day friends!! The first weekend back in Boston was a success - equal parts fun and relaxing!! Here's what we were up to!
Along with everyone else, I was pretty pumped that Fuller House was released on Netflix this past Friday - I mean TGIF all over again, and I make no qualms about finishing it all this weekend...each episode was like 24 minutes so that barely counts as binge watching, right? We also watched Leap Year because it's a leap year, so that doesn't need much explanation! 
Most of Saturday was spent getting ready for a gala we had that night!! I was lucky enough to get a last minute appointment at Icon Salon in Newton Center. Not only did Amnon nail the hair cut, but he totally wins for keeping my curls in shape for not one, but two days - you'll see second day hair later in the post! 

Everyone was so friendly & since it was my first time there I was given a tour of the salon. I also noticed that they put an ATM downstairs and I find this to be so smart because I am notorious at forgetting cash for tips and this just makes it so much easier for everyone! 
I haven't been able to find a great hair stylist here in Boston in 6 years...bouncing from salon to salon and finally I can say, I've found THE guy! You know when you say, just take off an inch and they end up getting scissor happy, well that was not the case here! I even talked about perhaps a little balayage hair action so stay tuned for that!  
That night we got all dressed up in the name of charity! Part work, but mostly play - it was a really fun night for a good cause and we were happy to even play a small part in it! 
I'm so happy that I was able to wear this dress again (first seen here) and we won't even discuss how much use I've gotten out of my wedding earrings! It also felt like our own version of the Oscars - who doesn't love getting their hair done, putting on a pretty dress & then dancing the night away! 

Much of the East Coast was blessed with amazing weather on Sunday and we took full advantage of it! A little brunch at Clery's - fun fact, this is where Gary and I had our first date & where he took me before he proposed!
Gary had the Philly Eggs Benedict and I snuck a bite - seriously good! 
Reveling in second day hair! Why is it that when I curl my hair it never looks this good the next day - oh I know why - No patience!
Stopped into Trader Joe's on my weekly Sunday run for flowers and I scooped up pretty pink sunflowers! 
After the sky was on fire, it was time to settle in for the night and watch the Oscars and I have to say the red carpet was really underwhelming for me! But I did think that Charlize Theron absolutely slayed in Dior. Gorgeous! 

Today is a bonus day's of sorts - what are you going to do?! Link up below to share your weekends with us!

I was given a hair cut & style from Icon Salon in exchange for my honest review - the proof is in the second day hair here! :)

  7. Loved your locks this weekend (and even on the second day!) Woohoo for finding a new stylist! You guys looked gorgeous in your gala-wear! :) We watched some Fuller House this weekend, too, and I super enjoyed it. Trying to space it out so I have it to watch over a few more days at least. I'm glad it's so cute :)

  19. You look absolutely beautiful friend!! I’m so with you on 2nd day hair. Why can’t mine ever look that good when I do it???

    ReplyDelete
  20. You looked 100% perfect for the gala! Since being pregnant I have to wash my hair like once every four days (I still have to style in between) but it's so nice! Totally feel you on the second day hair thing! Happy Monday! Enjoy your "extra" day :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Omg girl your hair is so gorgeous, that is definitely a sign of a good salon when your hair stays just as fab the next day! Also how awesome do you guys look all dolled up for that gala! I've partially binge watched Fuller House and I swear the nostalgia isn't wearing off! Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

    ReplyDelete

  28. Love it when my hair lasts a few days after a blow-out, so pretty! I was never a big Full House fan (I know that's an unpopular opinion) so I haven't watched the reboot, but almost all of my friends did! Looks like you guys had a really fun weekend!

  29. I also finished Fuller House - what did you think? I saw a lot of people didn't like it, but I personally loved it! Your hair looked fab - I hate when I get curls (I have naturally curly, but get keratin treatments and straighten) for an event and they are too high - yours were perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your hair is AMAZING!! Definitely make that place your new salon!!! You and Gary look fabulous at that gala too. That brunch food looks delicious, and yay to flowers at Trader Joe's! I also agree with you about the red carpet, and Charlize... Flawless. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. You seriously have the most gorgeous hair - so jealous! And I honestly thought a good bit of Oscar night was underwhelming - aside from Leo's win! Happy Monday!

  32. Oh my goodness, you looked so gorgeous at the event that y'all went to! I know what you mean about having a hard time finding a hair dresser that you love and can trust, but it looks like you might have found the one! I can't wait to watch Fuller House! We didn't have a chance to watch it this weekend, but it sounds like everybody loved it!

  39. Finding a good stylist is SO important-it looks great! I love balayage and on your head of hair I can't imagine how great it would look! The ATM in the salon is a great idea too. You looked beautiful for your event- loved that dress and yes yes yes to second (and third day) hair--love when the girls at work do mine because it lasts so long! Have a great week!

  40. I haven't watched the new series Fuller House yet, but then again I didn't watch Full house either.

    Your hair looks gorgeous! I saw some of the pictures of it on instagram or I feel like I did. He did such a great job! If only my hair held curls like that.

    Your breakfast looks so delicious! We didn't watch the Oscars, completely forgot about it! But I heard Leo finally got that oscar haha.

  52. The gala sounds so fun and you looked gorgeous! I love how your hair turned out and the color of your dress is so pretty. Second hair day is the best right? Mine does they same thing and it stays curled for couple days. Sunday brunch was a good idea...we did the same!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love the hair! Looked fabulous both days. You looked gorgeous at the gala.
    Yesterday, I had some tater tots that looked a lot like yours. So yummy!

  55. Love your hair and dress for the charity event girl. Can't believe your hair looked that good on the second day! Haven't watched Fuller House yet but cannot wait to binge watch it this upcoming weekend as I have nothing planned. I agree Charlize Theron slayed it in Dior.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Your hair looks great on day one and day two. Like fab!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh my goodness, you looked stunning for the gala! Your hair was fabulous - look at those second day waves! I can't wait to watch Fuller House, but we have a full DVR to catch up on first after vacation. I agree with you about Charlize at the Oscars, she always nails it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. You look stunning in your gala pictures! And your hair was on point... I only wish I could keep curls for two days! I'm lucky if I can keep them for two hours! Haha.

    And Charlize was by far my favorite as well... I need that dress for our ball next year! Holy hotness!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Your second day hair looks just as good as when you were in the salon! I He did an AMAZING job! I hope that one day I can have a "spot" like that – where my husband-to-be and I have cute stories. And the food look amazing, too, so that's even more of a plus!

  70. Okay, where do I begin because there's so much fabulousness going on in this post! First, you look absolutely stunning and you both would give any celebrity couple walking the red carpet for the Oscars a run for their millions! You're gunna laugh, no lie did I say yassss girl out loud at the second day hair shot, babe you are such a beauty (I love olive on you)! I've heard of Fuller House, but I guess I'm just being a stubborn and proud '90s kid in refusing to see it because "it's not the same." However, you sparked my interest because most of the cast seems to be there, except for the Olsens :( Thanks so much for sharing, I always love these kind of posts from you! Have a wonderful day and start to the week, girlie!
