What a great weekend!

Well, we are finally out of our condo in South Boston (tear). But, we are ready for  a new adventure ahead. And, I plan to never move again after five flights of stairs and a week of packing all of our things. Yes, most of it was clothes and shoes. I think its a sign I need to take a vacation from shopping! And, find our forever home!

Not only did we finish up moving this weekend, but we went to an absolutely fabulous wedding in the city. I absolutely love city weddings, probably because I got married in Boston as well!

The ceremony took place in the North End and the reception was at the Colonnade Hotel with a roof top cocktail hour that was really nice!

Nick and I and the pups got to stay at the Fairmont our first night! The fur babies loved their residence for the evening. I think they thought it was their new home! All the attention and plush furniture to sleep on, the furs were in heaven.

We really enjoyed the Oak Room on Friday night. Its a must go to. It was busting with a ton of people and the food and drinks were wonderful. I got some really great lobster rolls. Nick ended up ordering a Pot Roast on a summer evening? Strange, I know. His dinner was to die for. We definitely will go back to the Oak Room soon.

Wedding night we decided to stay at the Colonnade and that was another great hotel that I haven’t been to in years. They just redid the roof top pool. Nick spent most of his day at the pool while I looked for a dress! Here is a pic of my dress…I did fall in love with it!

It was a perfect and fun filled weekend with great friends!

Enjoy the day!

Overnight Oats

Here is another recipe that another very good friend, Jessica shared with me last week. It is absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy and easy to make! Thanks Jess! I hope you all enjoy as much as I did!


Overnight oats are just oats soaked overnight that absorb the liquid you put them in – any kind of liquid you like!


Basic Recipe

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk [depending on how thick you like it]  ( I used vanilla flavored Almond milk)
1/3 cup plain yogurt ( I use Greek Yogurt)
1/2 banana
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Pinch salt
Pinch cinnamon

Honey on top!


Stir everything together in a bowl. Place in fridge overnight.

Next morning top with fresh berries, granola, and a dollop of peanut butter to taste if you want!

Back to Nantucket

As most of you know, we will be house hopping this summer to make things real interesting and exciting. We have yet to decide on where our next home will be, in the city or in the SUBURBS! YIKES! So, with all these decisions we are spending some time on the Island to decide on our next adventure. I had to share one of our favorite lunch spots and beaches just incase you make the trip to Nantucket this summer. Jetties Beach is one of our favorite spots on the Island. We usually walk or bike to this beach to grab some lunch at the bar or to take a break from the day and get some sun. Depending on the day, sometimes if not always, we take a ride to Something Natural to grab some sandwiches. This place is one of the best on the island for great sandwiches and fresh breads. Amazing! We are slightly addicted! They have a great outdoor space with picnic benches to enjoy your lunch! And don’t forget to grab some cookies on your way out! Happy Monday! Enjoy the week!
