Weekending | Not Quite Spring

Happy Monday friends! Despite the sunshine this weekend, Boston missed the Spring memo...it's currently snowing!! We'll call this a fluke and hope for some warmer temps soon, but we didn't let the funky weather stop us from having a great weekend! Here's what we got up to...
Not to keep talking about the weather, but on Friday night we went through a range of seasons all within 5 minutes!! At least we were fortunate enough to see a gorgeous sunset! 
It was also the last night of Dine Out Boston - our version of Restaurant Week. Along with some friends, we ventured to Post 390. What I love most about Post 390 is that you can actually have two different experiences there - the downstairs "tavern" is more relaxed with a great sharing menu. 
While upstairs in the "dining room" you can have a different experience with "fancier" food if you will! I wasn't starving, so I opted for their handmade arugula ravioli with a mushroom pesto & it was insanely delicious! 

The rest of the weekend looked something like this...
An early morning pure barre class! I'm trying my first Platform class on Friday and I can't wait! Still loving my S'well bottle :)
Did a little shopping...since I was able to tackle this...
The closet clean out happened! Two bags for donation and a slew of other pieces to sell! (this is just one side of the closet!) You may or may not have seen (on snapchat @blovedboston) the Express dresses I've had for close to 10 years that finally got donated!
Indulged in a much needed manicure
The picture of us doing our taxes isn't nearly as fun as what I spent Sunday afternoon doing! Which was brainstorming a fun pop-up event for late Spring with Valerie from VS Photography! Stay tuned for a great B~Inspired profile on Valerie in April! 
Ready for the start of this short week!! Link up below to share your weekend's with us & hope you have a great Monday!

  1. It truly was a fake spring weekend. Love how you faked it with the pretty nail colors and fun activities, but brrrrrr was it cold. Here's hoping spring makes a real appearance soon!

  8. I was in Charlotte this weekend where it was warm and snowy and got back to DC Saturday night to snow flurries and below freezing temps but I think a spring manicure might be in order to cheer me up! Looks like a great weekend in spite of the cold! I'm glad I went away or I probably would have stayed curled up on the couch all weekend!

  9. Platform is such a great workout! I definitely sweat when I take it. LOVE your cute hat!

  11. Your ravioli looks delicious!!! And dont worry, it is 34 degrees down here in the south this morning after we had 84 last week!!! I think winter wants one last hurrah! Congrats on cleaning out your closet!!! I meant to get around to that but it didn't happen. Hope you have a great week!

  12. Yuck, I'm sorry it's snowing there, but love the reflection photo! I'm glad it was a productive weekend for you! There is absolutely nothing better than a good closet clean-out! I can't wait for DFW's Restaurant Week in the late summer; it's the best! (And that ravioli looks delish!)

    ReplyDelete
  13. That sunset, though! Gorgeous!! Stay safe in the snow. School is delayed here. I'm enjoying the extra pajama time.

  17. I've never heard of that kind of class- you'll have to post how you liked it.
    I so can't wait to do my Spring change over in my closet. I plan on getting rid of a LOTTTTTTT!
    I am so sad of all the cold. I'm hoping that at least it means the horrible heat will take longer to settle in.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah love seeing Pure Barre make an appearance! Platform is so fun I finally just got to take a class, sweaty for sure! I was the happiest girl when my tax folder was sent to my accountant, wrangling up all of that was not fun. I need to switch over my closet and it will be donation time again, it's so hard to let go of some pieces right?

  26. It actually snowed just a little bit where I live in Alabama! Not enough to stick or anything and it might have lasted a couple of minutes, but you know everyone freaked out about it haha! Love your spring mani, girl! Mine is hot pink--I was tired of dark colors and wanted something bright and fun!

  27. I can't believe it is snowing up there!! My husband is on his way there now for work and I am hoping he doesn't get stuck! But I assume Boston doesn't shut down like NC does for snow haha. Anyways, looks like you had an awesome weekend!

  32. I seriously can't handle the weather this weekend! One minute it's super hot and then it's super cold all over again! It was definitely an interesting way to start off Spring! Despite the crazy weather, it sounds like you had a great weekend, and got a lot accomplished! I need to go through my closet sometime soon! I know that I have a lot to get rid of!

  50. It is freezing here too and it is supposed to snow. Those tulips certainly look gorgeous. I love your outfit. The hat is awesome and looks great on you, what brand is it? And such pretty nails too.

    Glad you did your taxes and tackled the closet. I probably have decade old dresses from Express I need to donate too.

    Last but not least, great quote to finish off this post. Happy Spring Biana!

  51. I thought of you this morning when I heard it was snowing in Boston! How crazy is that?! Hopefully spring will return soon. That ravioli looks beyond amazing and your closet looks so great! You've inspired me to clean out mine my next free weekend. Happy Monday!

The weather has definitely been having a moment and I'm with you, hopefully things will start to warm up soon! Nonetheless, it looks like you had a wonderful and productive weekend! That ravioli looks delicious! I've never taken a barre class before, but I know that in recent years, it's become quite popular, I may try one with my mom :) I LOVE you in hats and red lip, you look stunning!

  69. Post 390 sounds like a great spot for dinner and your meal looks amazing! I will keep that place in mind for when I finally make it to Boston. A clean out is always necessary from time to time especially with the smaller spaces you get from living in the city. Loving your Saturday look!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ditto.. snowed here too.. but glad to see the sun is already out and the snow is all melting away.
    the ravioli sounds divine.
    Have some spring cleaning going on here too.. the purge feels so good.

  71. Ahh, nothing better than a closet clean out! And seriously, what is up with this weather?! It has been so beautiful here the last few weeks and now that it's officially spring, it's 30 degrees out!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Love that spring mani color! This weather is wonky everywhere, was sweating with the AC on Friday and had to put the heater on this morning! Good luck with platform, I went to my third class this weekend and I am still trying to get the hang of it. Glad you got the taxes and the purge done!

  91. Ugh...I so need to do our taxes. I'm not looking forward to it since we owe! :( Snow! Eek! I'm loving the sun here in Texas. We did have some crazy clouds roll in and a cold front so it got down to 50...haha. Beautiful sunset you got to see!
