Hey there!

Hi, guys! Long time, no blog. The weekend ended up being really busy, so this is my first time in front of my computer since Friday morning. I’m not going to lie, I loved unplugging for a couple of days. I feel completely rejuvenated, which is awesome.

Our friends, John and Alexa, got married on Cape Cod, so Mal, Dave, Marie, and I decided to stay the weekend and make a mini vacation out of the trip.

I have no clue how we managed to pack so much stuff and then fit it all into Mal’s little car.


It was a cozy ride to the Cape, but somehow everything fit!

The first stop our of road trip: Marylou’s!

I went with an Almond Joy iced coffee this time. I tend to switch back between Almond Joy and Peanut Butter Wonderful. I’ve tried other flavors, but none of them are as good as these two.

When we arrived at the Cape, we were all starving, so we found a little pizza shop to have lunch.

Carmine’s pizza was fabulous”” I loved the soft, chewy dough. It reminded me a lot of the homemade dough we made a few weeks ago for Make Your Own Pizza Night.

I ate one slice and then split a second one with Marie.


After lunch, the four of us wandered around Chatham, which is super cute and the most perfect place for a wedding.

Then, we checked into our hotel room and vacation officially started!

We enjoyed a round of cocktails on the deck before we got dressed for the wedding.

Wedding recap next!



  1. Glad you were able to unplug a bit! Looks like a great time.

    PS – I love the inside of Marylous. I always see the iced coffees on your blog and want the coffee but after seeing the adorable inside of the shop, I just HAVE to go there when I’m in Boston. It will be on my must-visit list!

  2. That pizza looks delicious, and no night is complete without some firefly! I’m so glad it has spread across the nation – I remember the first time I had it in Charleston (where it’s made) and then was so upset that I couldn’t find it when I went home to Kansas City! Now it’s famous! And delicious. Best recipe – just pour it in some lemonade!

  3. That town looks adorable! On Friday I saw a guy on the subway with a Marry Lou’s plastic Iced Coffee cup. I was like OMG did they open one in the city. Sadly he said he had just commuted down from MA! 🙁

  4. I’m making my first trip to Boston next month and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pumped to tri Marylou’s, I can’t wait! I’m also pumped for some of the craft beers that you guys have, but we can’t get here in KC.

  5. you were on the cape again and i didn’t see you!!! ahh!! I actually work right next to the Chatham Squire at Sundance Clothing! I’m there every day of my life!!! Isn’t the Wequassett awesome!? my brother and his wife had their rehearsal dinner there last year for their wedding and as part of my job I got to attend a Chatham Magazine launch party at was fabulous!! Carmines is also the best pizza ever!! My ex boyfriend used to work there and I always got tons of free pizza back then!! I wish I saw you when you were here! Did you eat at the squire?

  6. We used to go to Chatham a lot during the summers when I was younger- these pictures bring back great memories, thanks for sharing! I had a sip of my first beer at the Squire!

  7. Is the peanut butter wonderful a flavored syrup-type thing? How do they make it taste like peanut butter? I really wish I knew about this place when I went there a year ago 🙂

  8. looks like a great weekend! i love whipped vodka! and firefly! i’m super excited to see there’s a skinny version. can’t wait to find it here (washington state). i’ll certainly keep an eye out now that i know it’s available.

  9. Holy…..takes me back… busband & I got married in Chatham this time last year….so fun to see pictures of the town again!

  10. I love Chatham and the past few weekends have been gorgeous. My parents have a house there and my sister is getting married there next Sept. What hotel did you and your friends stay at? We’re looking to make suggestions to the guests. Thank you!
