Friday Favorites

March 13, 2020
What a week! We had a work from home day on Monday, I took Tuesday off for my birthday and went to work for one day then was told we are to work from home / a remote location until further notice, so there's that! It's definitely scary and while we're not panicking, we have stocked up on essentials, food for all of us and hoping everyone stays as healthy as possible. Even with all that, it was still a good week and really not hard to come up with my favorites!
totally unprompted - she cracks me up!



Gary and I went to dinner at No.9 Park for my birthday. It's the flagship restaurant for chef Barbara Lynch and one that we've both wanted to try for a long time. Boston is also hosting Dine Out week right now, so it was perfect timing. We both had different things from the pre fixe menu and tasted almost everything that way! 
Jackie gifted me the most luxurious lipstick I will ever have! The new Hermes Rouge Matte Lipstick in the color "Rose Zinzolin" and unfortunately they have been so popular that they are on back order every where right now. 
I took a little time to do some brainstorming and work at my favorite cafe - such a little treat to have this in our neighborhood now! Also, will probably seeing refuge here after working from home for the foreseeable future!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends. We're going to be praying for nice weather so we can practice some social distancing, but not be cooped up inside.

  13. Happy birthday! It's great you've been able to go out and enjoy the occasion even as more things are starting to shut down. it's looking likely I will have to work from home for the future too, will check in with my boss again tomorrow but probably would be best to work from home.

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend! We are having a quiet one here :)
