Weekending | Still Feels Like Summer

Happy Monday friends! Fall was not in the air this weekend, but summer certainly was and we didn't mind it one bit! I think we soaked up enough sun to last us through the rest of the year! This was my first full free weekend off from anything wedding related and I took advantage of all that extra time! If you see a ton of "portrait mode" photos that's because I got my hands on the iPhone 8s Plus and it's love! The quality of the photos is incredible! Sure the phone is exactly the same size & feel as my 6s, but for the amount of photos I take it was worth it to upgrade - you can be the judge in the photos from the weekend! 
Terra has been at the top of my list of places to try out and on Saturday we finally went! It's located on the upper level of Eataly Boston & is this beautiful garden style restaurant, but indoors! From fresh herbs on the walls to the wood burning grills, you get the authentic Italian vibe!

 We split their zucchini frites & short ribs which were delicious! Couldn't resist an Aperol Spritzer which was pretty refreshing considering it was close to 90 degrees!

 Caught this little guy right after he buried some acorns!
There are few things I love more than strolling through the public garden and just people watching! We saw THREE couples taking photos in the park and all three of the bridal parties were were burgundy...looks like that is the color of the season!
I definitely didn't wear the right shoes for the 8 miles we walked on Saturday, but we kept the Italian theme going by making pasta with lobster & shrimp! For someone who loves lobster as much as I do, this was the first time I've attempted to make it at home from scratch and it was so easy! Might have to attempt lobster mac and cheese next!

If you guys have been following me from way back to the start of this blog, then you might remember this little doorway from my first blog button! Still one of my favorite little side streets in the city! 


On Sunday we had a belated Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) celebration at my sister's house! My sister truly outdid herself from the homemade mini challah bread to the apple rose pastries to the incredible potato latkes - it was the perfect way to start a sweet new year! 

And that my friends was the best end to the weekend I could have hoped for! I forgot to mention that G & I have finally gotten into Game of Thrones - you know 7 seasons behind, but we are bingeing like champs! To my friends that tried to convince me to watch and I hastily said it's not for me, I was crazy - GOT was totally for me!
Hope you have a wonderful start to the week! Link up below to share your weekends with us! 
P.S. all these photos were taken on the iPhone 8s Plus!

  1. Wow, the pictures are amazing! Definitely worth the upgrade! Looks like you guys had a great weekend! The apple rose pastries your sister made are beautiful! And the pasta you made looks amazing! I've never tried making lobster at home either. Might have to give the lobster mac and cheese a try too!

  4. Your sister's Rosh Hashanah set-up was amazing! How talented is she?! It totally felt like summer here, too, and I'm just dying for some fall weather. You're giving me major iPhone envy! My Dad has Portrait Mode on his iPhone 7+ and it totally makes all the difference! I'm obsessed!

  8. It's been so hot here! I am all about extending summer, but if we could stay out of the 90's would be great! I love my new 8 plus and can't wait to try the camera out more. These all look amazing!

  9. Wow look at all that food!! We are having crazy high temps for this time of year too - I wish it was actually slightly cooler though! Soon enough :)

  10. Did you take all of the pictures in your post with the iPhone8? I've been debating on getting it. I mean, I'm due for an upgrade since I only have the 6 but some people were saying it wasn't that different from the 7 so I wasn't sure. And can we talk about how freaking hot it still is?! Ugh! Where is fall?! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  23. I didn't realize that the 8S had the portrait mode too! I definitely want to upgrade from my 6+, I just don't know which phone to get just yet. And hooray for getting to spend some time outdoors and soaking up as much sun and warmth as possible before fall really gets here! Although, I think that I'm really ready for it to get here!

  24. I remember that door! Looks like the perfect weekend with much needed relaxation and outdoor time, and Eataly for the win again! Cheers to a fabulous week <3

  25. Yay for the new iPhone! I totally caved and just got the 7 Plus because I was too impatient for the 8, ha! My measly 16GB 6 model was on its last life - I am obsessed with the camera, too though! Glad you had a great weekend - this summer weather is unreal!

  26. These meals all look delicious and your photos are great - I might have to look into the new iPhone!

  27. What a beautiful spread for Rosh Hashanah! All of that food looks amazing. The weather you've been having looks awesome, too. We're headed up to New England soon, and it looks like we won't get any break from the heat!

  29. My next wedding I'm doing in 2 weeks is also burgundy. The wedding color of fall apparently.

  30. Your pictures do look awesome!!!! It basically makes me want to jump in to the screen and eat allllll those things! The food your sister made looks so good. It was summer weather here this weekend too. I am so ready for it to cool down some. I tried to watch the first episode of GOT but couldn't get in to it. I think Chris wants to try again. Everyone who watches it seems to love it.

  39. Okay, so I need an iPhone 8+ now. DANG, those are some good pictures! When we got our phones earlier this year we just got the 7 instead of the 7+ because I didn't want to have a bulkier phone. I'm kicking myself now, though!

  40. I love your red and pink top! it's been really hot here in San Francisco as well, and I have been loving it!

I was just talking to Sprint today and am going to get the 8 (but probably not til December, I have the 6 right now)..........you are making me want to get it sooner! If those are unedited photos, I am SERIOUSLY getting it sooner! The photos are incredible!! catchatwithcarenandcody

  49. It's crazy how summer doesn't want to end! It sounds like you had a wonderful time soaking it all up, your sister's Rosh Hashana spread looks amazing! Wishing you all a sweet and prosperous New Year!!! As for the photos, they look amazing! Eddie just got his and was raving about the photos all weekend. It was the first time I saw him show some excitement for taking random photos (taking blog photos is NOT his favorite pastime, lol). Thanks for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  56. we're going through a crazy heat wave as well - 32°C in Toronto! it's supposed to cool down later this week (yes, please) but I'm not mad at the sun who wants to stay just a little longer.
