Friday Favorites | Long Weekend Ahead

Happy Friday friends! What a week!! Between going to NYC for a quick overnight trip on Monday night, Valentine's Day on Tuesday & an event on Thursday it's been a fun one and we're not stopping for the weekend!! It's Gary's birthday on Sunday and I plan on taking that extra day off on Monday to spoil him!! Linking up with Amanda to share some favorites from the week! 

Bubbly Brunch ||



This past Sunday, Tess & I headed over to the Hyatt Regency Boston downtown to enjoy their Bridal Brunch Preview. We were greeted with mimosas, pastries & the most decadent brunch set up in their Adrienne Salon which opens up beautifully into their grand ballroom. The Adrienne Salon is one of the only oval rooms in the city! It was a fun afternoon with fellow wedding planners & Boston bloggers! I'm still thinking about the sour cream pancakes with real bourbon glaze syrup! 

Barry's Bootcamp ||

On a whim, Jackie and I decided to go to Barry's Bootcamp together this past Sunday. Side note, Sunday we had some of the worst weather this year and yet I managed to do more that day than any other weekend day!! Anyway, the workout was insane - in the best way possible. We were in the full body class as opposed to the targeted classes like arms, abs, chest. The intensity level on their classes is at a 15 on a scale of 1 to 10! Gary had taken a few classes and mentioned starting on the floor would be best since you wouldn't wind yourself after going hard on the treadmill. Every rave review of this place is true - I burned 500 calories in an hour and was still sore 3 days later!! It's expensive so not something I'll be doing weekly, but I'd love to take at least 2 classes a month! 

Shake Shack Limited Offering ||

Gary and I got to check out Shake Shack's limited time BBQ menu featuring the BBQ Shackmeister Burger, BBQ Chick'n and Shack & BBQ Bacon Cheese Fries - are you hungry yet! We left incredibly stuffed & now you know why I have to burn 500 calories in a workout!! 😂

Back Packs ||


I'm seriously crushing on back packs and I can't decide which one I want!! Which one would you choose? 

Link Love ||

What do you guys have planned for the weekend? Hope it's amazing!

  11. Um, it's 6:30 a.m. and that Shake Shack food is making me hungry! And that Utah teen; so sweet! A little boy here bought Valentine's for every single child (700+) in his elementary school and it totally made me bawl watching it on the news!

  21. Happy Friday, girl! What a fun week for you. I'm jealous of your long weekend, but enjoy celebrating with Gary :) That brunch looks amazing! I love my backpack and use it a lot more than I thought I would. I love the blush or mint one for spring but you can never go wrong with classic black and can wear it any season xo

  24. You definitely need cute backpack for city living! I know so many people who are obsessed with Barry's! I'm such a wuss and terrified of it, but great job going!

  25. Aw! Happy Birthday to Gary!!! I know you both will have a wonderful time celebrating in style and with delicious food, always with delicious food haha! Speaking of, that brunch looks like it was absolutely amazing! The setup is gorgeous and those pancakes are giving me major cravings now lol! If Eddie were to hear about them, that would be the end of it, he could eat pancakes everyday for breakfast. Wow, that class sounds intense! I'm not a fan of classes because I tend to like to go off and do my own thing, but I must say that this class is convincing with the intensity that I'd be 100% open to trying; that's amazing that you burned that many calories in just one hour! I think I want to do this (if they have here in CT) after giving birth to shed the extra weight! As for the backpacks, I love your selection, but I can definitely envision you in that black Karl Lagerfeld one or the camel colored one all day! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and again, have a wonderful weekend celebrating!

  31. I have seen a lot of bloggers post about Shake Shack's bbq menu. Those pictures look really good and I just might have to try them for the first time. Love that brunch you attended. I always love a good workout and it seems he kicked your booty. Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  32. You definitely had a busy (but fun) week! That brunch looks amazing and that bootcamp sounds so intense, but that's always the best kind of workouts- especially when you're so proud of yourself at the end! Every time I see the iPhone commercial for the portrait mode, where the girl is in Italy (i think) and she takes pictures of everyone it makes me want to upgrade my phone!

  33. Those burgers look so delicious!! I hope you have a great long weekend girl!

  48. Barry's bootcamp sounds so intense, but I love when you leave a workout feeling like you killed it. I want to get an Apple watch just to track calories like this. Also I just checked out that iPhone 7 article you posted. Ughhhhh... I want this so much just for the camera! I've only heard good things!
