Weekending around Boston

Happy Monday friends!! Hope the weather was better where you guys were because it was quite dreary here in Boston, but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying the 50 degree weather!! Between a little spa time, birthday celebrations, brunch & spending time with my nieces & sister - it was packed full of the good stuff weekends should be packed with! 
Bright and early Saturday morning, Jackie and I made our way to Bella Sante Day Spa on Newbury Street. Since we were celebrating her birthday a little later on that day, I wanted to treat her to a pampering session. We tried out their pedicure of the month which was an hour well spent getting the tootsies in good shape & a nice relaxing foot massage for an hour didn't hurt! 
They have a really nice lounge area where you can wait before and after your services and we waited there while our toes dried - maybe even had more than our fair share of chocolates! 
For dinner we all went out to one of our favorites in Somerville - Painted Burro! We all failed at getting any group photos, but the all important food photo wasn't missed! 
Baha Style tacos - delish!
Since brunch on Sunday is always a good idea and Gary was away at a conference, I met up with a friend for an early brunch. I've been to Hops & Scotch a few times, but this was the first time I asked for most of their brunch sides - it's hard to tell from the photo, but the omelet was so tiny. It was only two eggs with a little cheddar cheese in the middle, not a lot of food when you think about it, but so filling! And who can say no to tots?! 
My sister scooped me up after brunch and we headed to the mall with my nieces! They are at such a fun age right now and I'm happy they think of me as their fun aunt, let's hope that lasts! As always, weekends go by way too fast, but I'm looking forward to a fun week ahead! 

How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!

  1. A spa day sounds absolutely heavenly right now! We had a good, low key weekend as well. I'm jealous of your brunch as well, I feel like our brunch days have really decreased now that we have a crazy toddler in tow.

  21. It was warmer in Boston than it was in Dallas. Mind blown. It looks like a fun weekend! (Any weekend that includes extra chocolate sounds really good to me right now, lol.) Did you do something different with your hair?? It's looking extra gorgeous in these photos!

  42. The Day Spa you ladies went to sounds so relaxing and luxurious! K was also gone for work most of the weekend other than Sunday so I got lots of "me" time in. I'm glad you got to catch up with some girl friends and then enjoy Sunday with your equally gorgeous sister. QT with your nieces, I'm sure was good for the soul and a fun way to cap off the weekend! I'm sure that was so needed after being snowed in for a few weekends in a row! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  49. My sister, mom, and I were just talking about doing a spa day. I love massages. It's so fun to explore things in the cities around you. We already said we would love to put Boston on the list this summer and find a campground near by for the airstream :) Sierra~Beautifully Candid
