I think it's safe to say that I have eased into this new year!! After an extra long weekend I'm feeling motivated and ready for the week ahead!! I mentioned that my mom flew up here on Thursday so I spent the day hanging out with her and my sister before they went to Vermont for the long weekend - we're actually headed there this coming weekend and I'm beyond excited for the fresh mountain air, but before that here are a few snaps of the weekend!
Friday night Gary and I went to the Liberty Hotel for an impromptu night out with some friends.
It's hard to not want to be a hermit in the winter so we give ourselves pep talks before going out to psych ourselves up #oldladystatus - you know something like - just think how amazing it will be when we get home and get comfy 😂 <-- please tell me we're not alone here!
Probably the most productive Saturday I've had in a while and actual meal planning happened! I made margarita chicken fajitas from the Cravings cookbook & oh my gosh was it amazing!! We also started the show Goliath on Amazon thanks to a few of your recommendations. I'm not normally a Billy Bob Thornton fan, but I love any legal drama so I'm glad we gave this one a go!
After Eataly Boston opened in November we wanted to wait for the crowds to die down before we attempted a trip back. Apparently the crowds will never die down since it was just as packed on Sunday as it was the weekend it opened. There are three different areas to eat - two require reservations that can only be made in person & the one la piazza is first come first served. We snagged a table at one of the bars & enjoyed a leisurely lunch with arancini (fried risotto balls), a charcuterie board with an assortment of cheeses & meats capped off with Tajarin - hand cut egg pasta with truffle butter and parmesan. Yes, tasted just as amazing as it sounds!
If you ever make it to Boston, I can't recommend a stroll through Beacon Hill enough - especially on Charles Street. It's my favorite neighborhood in the city & all the little alley's that lead to the most charming homes - beyond picturesque! At this point you've seen these boots & bag on repeat in basically every single outfit post because I just can't get enough. The boots were one of the best purchases I made at the end of last year - I can walk miles without so much as a pinch. I have a what's in my bag post coming up soon & I'm going to be sharing just how much you can fit into this small bag!
Bonus weekend day gave us time to do all the things without feeling like we're spending precious weekend moments. We finally hung some artwork in the hallway for the start of our gallery wall, made a huge dent in our PCH itinerary & scooped up the cutest little faux marble side table from TJ Maxx!! Closed out Monday with my standard Bachelor viewing! I know a lot of people aren't liking this season, but at least it's not nearly as boring as the ones in previous seasons!!
Are you watching the bachelor? Have you picked your winner yet?
