Good morning and a very happy Monday to you!
How was your weekend? What’d you do? Who’d you see? What’d you eat? We had another busy weekend. It was all fun stuff, but, whoa, I feel like I need another weekend just to relax! But, hey, that’s what summer in New England is all about. You take FULL advantage of the nice weather and pack as much in as possible while you can because before you know it, you’ll be buried under 7+ feet of snow. (<— the photos in this post still blow my mind a little!) Anyway… onto the weekend!
KFIT celebrated its 4th birthday with a workout + party + shopping, so, of course, I couldn’t miss it. The workout was really hard (holy, wallballs), but I had an awesome partner and an awesome group of women exercising right along with me, so it flew by.
And then it was time for snacks, sangria, and shopping at The Chic Stop, a traveling boutique on the South Shore. You can book the truck for events, parties, and other get-togethers and it comes right to you.
The KFIT ladies had a blast shopping all of the adorable and affordable (some dresses were $23) clothing, jewelry, and other accessories at The Chic Stop.
After the KFIT party, I put Quinn to bed and then I had girl’s night in since Mal was out with his buddies. I made dinner (roasted potatoes with melted cheddar + ketchup) and a cocktail (coconut pineapple seltzer + vodka) and then gave myself a mani-pedi and caught up with The Real Housewives of OC. It was awesome. Sometimes, a girl’s night in is exactly what you need.
On Saturday morning, I joined some friends at CrossFit Factory Wood Road to celebrate our friend Amanad’s birthday and, holy cow, the workout was tough. Even though it was done with a partner, it was basically 3 workouts in one. Yowsahs.
Happy birthday, Amanda! (She’s the one wearing the amazing Little Mermaid tank top!)
After the workout, we all met up for brunch at Hingham Beer Works. Watermelon Mojito? Yes, please!
Yay, brunch!!! (FYI: There isn’t much of a brunch menu at Beer Works, but the food was tasty and there was a nice view of the water.)
Saturday night, Mal and I went on a double-date at Ester, which had an incredible outdoor patio. I honestly could have sat there all night.
The food at Ester was excellent too! We started with oysters, which came with the spiciest hot sauce ever. My mouth and lips were on fire after I ate it. I’m guessing it was probably homemade? Holy wow.
I ordered two appetizers for dinner: Yucca fries + meatballs. Both were delicious.
And, of course, I saved room for dessert. Mal and I shared a homemade ice cream cookie sandwich, which was THE BEST. Holy yum for sure.
Sunday morning started with an epic breakfast, complete with blueberry pancakes, bacon, and plenty of iced coffee.
Later that afternoon, we celebrated my nephew’s 2nd birthday. His party was construction-theme!
I love how he decided to eat his cake. Haha!
Our weekend concluded with Sunday night dinner.
And cuddles on the couch.
