Weekending | The one with snow in April

Well hello there friends!! I hate starting posts out talking about weather...but when it's as erratic as it has been in New England you sort of have to - gorgeous on Friday and we woke up to snow on Sunday!! WHAT?! That didn't stop us from having a fun filled weekend - here's what we got up to! 
Monday Mantra
Friday after work I headed out to drinks and dinner with my friend who's getting married in the Bahamas in December!! It was so much fun hearing about what she has in store for all of us and I'm already looking forward to being on the beach in December!
We stopped by Washington Square Tavern to enjoy a few drinks and their amazing cheese plate and then walked over to Barcelona where I couldn't believe the crowd at the bar!! 
Luckily they had plenty of space outside to enjoy our drinks! Not pictured the sushi we devoured later in the evening - it was the perfect girl's night! 
Saturday was seriously gross and after a pure barre class and grocery shopping we stuck to the indoors and got it ALL done!! Fun lunch recipe coming to the blog later this week!! Gross weather also calls for new shows!! We started season 1 of The Americans - it's an FX show, but we started streaming it on Amazon and we're hooked!

We met our friends for dinner at Banyan Bar + Refuge in the South End. It's been open for about 9 months and has almost a cult following, I'd say their cocktail menu was one of the most fun I've seen! If you've seen the episode of Sex & The City where they go the Raw restaurant (where Samantha meets Smith) and all the ladies are confused with how ordering and the food works - that's exactly how I felt at Banyan! 
It's Asian style tapas and you know if there is anything lobster related on the menu I'm going to try it! The presentation of the food was great and tasted amazing! The portions are on the smaller side - hence the tapas, but we still managed to leave pretty full!
 Someone was getting a lot of love from their sweet pup Koa!

Our lazy Sunday included brunch at Del Frisco's Grille & a little shopping! 
I picked up another shadow stick from Bobbi Brown in the color dusty mauve & also a pretty pink lip gloss! I have a post lined up with all my current make-up favorites and these shadow sticks are the my favorite!! Oh, if you're wondering if Lauren Conrad's new book Celebrate is worth the download - it totally is!

  3. Asian style tapas?? Yum! Your weekend looked really tasty (even that pup seemed to agree when he was licking Gary's face haha). I turned on the news this morning and the guy was in Boston saying you guys are gonna get 3-5 inches today??? What the what? We went from 84 degrees on Friday to 40s yesterday and I had to bust out my winter coat again. What gives, mother nature? Hope you guys don't get too much snow!!

  4. Snow?? So crazy!!! We had wonderful 70 degree weather yesterday.....maybe that will be your last snow and spring will finally be here to stay for y'all. Your snaps of the weekend looked wonderful!!!

  5. Your Sex in the City comparison is hilarious! That's one of my favorite scenes. When we have snow the city shuts down for 3 days so it fascinates me that you are out doing stuff! Great job getting stuff done!

  7. We got a ton of snow this weekend too! People around us thought that today might be a snow day because there was a lot of snowfall over night. Stay safe out there!

  11. I don't know if I'd call this weekends weather gross, but crazy yes. I was wearing shorts on Friday and a ski jacket sunday. You're always so in tune with Boston's restaurant scene, we only eat out ~2-3 per month but you always give me great ideas for places to try.

  12. I'm staring at the snow coming down right now and I'm seriously like how is this happening?!?! The Banyan Bar + Refuge sounds right up my alley!! I'll have to remember that place!! =)

  15. Looks like such a fun weekend! (And we love Del Frisco's!) My husband is traveling your way later this week and is completely baffled by the cold weather y'all are getting -- and meanwhile, we are in the 80's down here! Crazy!

  16. How adorable is that Frenchie pup! All the food looks delish, and yayyyy for your friend's destination wedding! You'll have to share your Destination Weddings & Honeymoons mags with her for sure! I can't believe how crazy your weather has been, hopefully that's the last of the snow and spring can show it's true colors <3

  19. Ohhhhh a beach wedding in December, how fun!!! I am sure that will give you a nice break from the frigid air up there! All of your food looks amazing! I really want that cheese plate yum! Cant wait to see your lunch recipe! I am trying to spice up the jam on my lunches during the week to get out of my lunch rut. I tried a new quinoa enchilada casserole recipe this week. Hope you have a great week!

  30. Aww Koa is SO cute!!! Chris loved The Americans but honestly I hated it. Kerri Russell's character annoyed me so much and I felt like I could not get into it..Glad that you like it though!! :-) It rained, snowed, and was sunny here on Saturday so I hear you on the weather. Ugh. All of that food and those drinks look delicious, and that make is pretty. :-) I'm glad that you had a fun weekend and I hope that you have a great day today!!! :-)

  31. This weather is ridiculous! Give me sunshine! We basically stayed inside and watched TV all day yesterday haha. I need to read Lauren Conrad's book!

  33. That totally sucks about the crazy weather that y'all have had! It was very chilly this morning in Texas too, and I don't like it! Despite the crazy weather it sounds like you had a great weekend! Catching up with girlfriends is the best, and all of the food you had this weekend sounds amazing!

  34. We're getting a ton of snow in Connecticut right now too!! I really need spring and the warm weather to come so that I don't have to wear tights to work anymore!

  35. That Banyan Bar looks amazing. And I sympathize with your weather frustrations -- it was warmer in February than it is now. And we just got our first snowfall this weekend after almost 6 weeks off!

  36. Love that pineapple quote. So cute. It snowed a little here too and we had 60mph winds! It was crazy. But great for getting stuff done inside! Your food looks amazing. And I watched a few episodes of Americans when it first came on and then forgot about it, but I've been seeing previews lately and kind of want to get back into it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I feel you on the weather. Same exact kind here. Looks like a great weekend. We went out to eat thus past weekend too and the food was great. I can tell the same about yours. I am looking forward to your makeup favorites post. And that pineapple quote is soooo cute!

    Happy first Monday of April, B!

  39. I've never seen that show! Oh my word, I love the pineapple print/quote. So cute! I can't believe you guys got snow. The weather is always all over the place it seems!

  50. I know, I can't believe the weather either! Friday was amazing and these past couple of days have had me itching my head...where is April?! Hopefully it'll start to warm up soon! Those cheeses look amazing, especially the purplish one in the middle, so different! My husband and I have been wanting to go to a wine and cheese spot for a while, there's one not too far from wear we live, but we always forget. After seeing these pics, I'll definitely remember, haha! I'm the same with lobster, if it's on the menu, everyone knows that I'll be ordering it and that dish looks amazing! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. PS: I love that last quote!

One of my best friends from college is talking about getting married down in the Caribbean, and we wouldn't miss it for the world. Getting to vacation AND be a part of a close friend's wedding is a win/win!
