Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers! I am sure everyone had a wonderful day! I had to share one of my favorite pictures from my wedding with my wonderful mom! Happy Mother’s Day Mom! xoxo
Nick and I had a fantastic weekend with some great friends and family! I had a nice lunch downtown with a college friend who spoils my fur babies! I had to share some pics with the furs new plush toys from Chicago, very chic! Take a look at their website, you are sure to find some fur baby gifts! http://www.barkerandmeowsky.com
I also did a great walk with some great friends for Caring for a Cure 5k/ Positive Project in Marshfield. Caring for a Cure was founded in 2011 by the nurses of the Hematology/Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Our goal is to improve the journey of patients and families with cancer through research, resources and awareness. Through direct donations and fundraising events, together we have raised over twenty thousand dollars. Help us continue to make a difference for our patients and their families as we continue Caring for a Cure.

We had a wonderful time at Brahmin in the Back Bay Saturday to celebrate a friends 30th. Lots of fun! We were barely able to get ourselves out of the house on Sunday to head to the beach in Duxbury. We even stopped at Steel and Rye in Milton to enjoy a cheeseburger omelet for Mother’s Day. Yes, you read that correctly. A cheeseburger omelet. Don’t worry I opted for something more manageable 🙂 They have great outdoor seating and a great brunch on Sundays. If you are in Milton stop on by!
On our way home we even spotted this! LOL Furbaby on motorcycle…..OMG! You have to love Southie, you never know what you will see!
And thank you Charlie and Max and Mom and Dad for the Mother’s Day Flowers!! xoxo
Yesterday, was finally a gorgeous day in Boston. I think the cold weather has left! It was the perfect day to find a nice spot in town to sip some cocktails and people watch. And I did just that! I have always loved Abe & Louis and if you haven’t been, now is the perfect time. They have great outdoor seating, a great menu with my favorite lump crab appetizer and Veuve Clicquot. A perfect late afternoon snack! We then wrapped up a wonderful day with ice creams for the fur babies at Castle Island in Southie. It doesn’t get better than this. Bring on summer!
I just picked up the May-June issue of New England Home. It’s one of my favorite magazines to get some great decorating ideas for both the interior and exterior of your condo or house. I especially love this room! The gold tree trunk table is an amazing piece that can be used in any type of sitting room or champagne room, like the one you are seeing here. The window treatments work perfectly in this room as well. The sunlight radiants throughout the room to give it a warm and spacious feel. I have always loved neutral colors, such as those used on the couch. And the fur is my favorite! This room is unbelievable!
I hope everyone had a wild and crazy Cinco de Mayo! I took another route last night and got my butt to the Equinox and then off to bevies with the ladies after the gym. We went to a great and exhausting class at the Equinox called “Whipped” where we basically got whipped for an hour, and then headed to Granery Tavern right around the corner for some sangria and Patron on the rocks. Yes, they decided to put Roses lime juice in my drink…not what I wanted. I tend to be a very picky cocktail drinker 🙂 No thank you! We did have some wonderful snacks to eat! A great porcini and truffle oil flatbread, some fried chicken (why do I even go to the gym) and my favorite the cheese and hummus plate! Granary was busy and a great place for after work cocktails. I would definitely go back soon!
I don’t even know where to begin. Nick and I took the end of last week and this weekend to help the parents in Nantucket. Wow! What an adventure it was unpacking and getting the houses ready for Memorial Day weekend and the summer. I think Nick put 20 pieces of furniture together and I unpacked zillions of pillows, kitchen ware and was a great project manager 🙂 We did have some fun at Surfside Beach with the pups and went to some great dinners. My favorite place on the island is the SeaGrille! Yummy, great fresh fish and a great list of cocktails! Which we all needed, believe me. We were all very exhausted come Sunday. Here are a few pics! Charlie did not like the ferry to Nantucket! She was a little nightmare! We also needed Brix on the Island to make it through the past few days! Thank goodness they were open! And finally here is a sneak peek at one of the fabulous rooms in the big house. Take a guess…its all about Fish!
