Weekending | The Last of June

Welcome back to Monday friends and the official last week of June!! This weekend was all sorts of fun so let's get right into what we got up to! 
Serious house goals spotted this weekend - that deck with flowers is everything! 

My weekend started out with the sweetest delivery from a friend using Greetabl - with of slogan of Happiness Delivered, it really did put a smile on my face!! My friend Jackie sent me my favorite candy from Sugarfina - the champagne gummy bears and a cute card that was sent by the company! You have 16 gifts to choose from (as of right now). I think this is such a great idea - especially if you're a bride looking to ask your bridesmaids if they'd like to be in your wedding! 
Boston Harbor Sailing
Saturday was stunning! We decided to head to the Boston Sailing Center for one of their Open Houses and free sailing days!! We've done this once before about 4 years ago and this time was even more perfect. The weather was unreal! After the sail (which lasts about 20 minutes) you head over to grab some free drinks and enjoy the views! It's one of my favorite summer activities and I'm so glad they offer it up to those of us who have no clue how to sail! 
The best views of the city from the water! 

Saturday night Jackie and her husband invited us over for an impromptu BBQ. We had such  nice night enjoying food, I didn't even have a chance to snap a photo of the food...but dessert there will always be room for! You might have even caught a video of Tom sabering some champagne on snapchat (@blovedboston)! 

Sunday we knocked off one of my summer bucket list items and headed off to the Franklin Park Zoo! It was steamy...a little stinky out there at times, but it was so much fun!!
Sorry this little guy is a little blurry :)
My favorite moment included seeing the gorilla's up close - they are so incredible and the little baby gorilla was happily playing along with everyone watching!! 
The flamingo's flamingaling :) 
The sales this weekend did not disappoint - I picked up 2 pairs of shorts (safari & riviera) and some new sunnies (50% off and come in blush too) and wore them all weekend long! On a seriously random note, I tried my first cold brew on Sunday and for this non-coffee drinking girl...I have to say it tasted almost identical to an iced latte...maybe it was all the half and half I added to mine, but I'll be ordering one again soon!

  1. That house is absolutely gorgeous! How cool is it that they offer a sail and then drinks? Definitely something I would love to take advantage of...if I didn't live in the landlocked Midwest. I have been wanting to go to the zoo, too. Looks like you saw some awesome animals. Happy Monday!

  23. I hit up the outlet mall for some sales this weekend too. I love how it's the "end of season" sale, but it's June 25th. It'll be in the 80s into October, we still have months to wear "summer" clothes in NC. :)

  24. That sailing activity looks so fun, free sailing and free drinks??? Sign me up! Looks like you guys had an awesome weekend!

  25. Your sailing adventure looked like so much fun this past weekend, and that's so awesome that they offer it for free as well! I've always wanted to learn how to saber a bottle of champagne, but I don't think that I'm coordinated enough to do it! I loved watching your friend to it though!

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a perfect weekend! Impromptu BBQ's are my favorites - good food, good company and easy clean up!

  29. Still think greetabl is so cool-- and such a fun twist on a traditional card to send to someone! I still need to try the champagne gummy bears. It looks like you guys had such a fun weekend. The sailing sounds so fun, and it's so nice they offer it for free certain days!

  30. What a great weekend you had. I loved your snaps while sailing. It was such a beautiful day to be on the water. I love those champagne gummies, what a sweet treat. Did you enjoy the zoo? Loved all the snaps of the animals. That house is gorgeous. Glad you liked the cold brew? Where did you try it from? Personally, I think the cold brew from the Thinking Cup is one of the best.

  35. Sounds like you had the perfect summer weekend! Sailing in the Boston harbor must have been so much fun! And your trip to the zoo is reminding me to get my kids there asap. We love the Central Park zoo. Next time you're in NYC, you should definitely check it out :)

  40. You've mentioned your love for Sugarfina a number of times, but I've yet to order anything from them. I'll be meeting a childhood friend for the first time in nearly 10 years on Saturday, she's getting married and I, of course, don't want to show up empty handed. I just may need to get these! I mean, who wouldn't like the sound (and taste) of champaign gummy bears, right!? I love the pieces you got on sale, SALE is my middle name, haha! I managed to get the blue version of the yellow Zara leather jacket I've been obsessed with on sale after hunting it down (it's selling out so quickly online!). I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend doing some thing you've had on your list! I can't believe we'll be entering July this month! Seriously, where is the time going!? I hope you have the most amazing week ahead, beautiful!

  62. These months are just zipping by.

    Seriously love this house and garage area! I would love to have that, great way to have a multifunctioning house, garage and deck.

    Sounds like a fun weekend at the zoo, we actually have a local peacock that just wanders the neighborhood (not in my neighborhood) and it's pretty cool to see him just wandering around.
