Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Mine was especially nice because I got to spend the majority of it with Mal’s family. His sister and her husband were in town from Seattle, so we did some of our favorite East coast things with them. On Saturday afternoon, we met Mal’s parents, his sister, and her husband in Harvard Square. My father-in-law is a Harvard alum, so he…

I receive a ton of questions from readers about where to stay when they visit Boston. I’m always hesitant to give my recommendations because I’ve only stayed at two hotels (now three) in the area. All of my family lives locally and when my friends visit, they stay at our house, so I just haven’t had a ton of experience with the hotels in the Boston area. With that said, I finally have a great…

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the Annual Press Party at The Charles Hotel. I was actually invited to this same event last year, but I couldn’t make it, so I was especially excited to go this time. The event also featured an exclusive look at the new Corbu Spa & Salon and, of course, I love spas, so I was psyched to see what it was all about. With the spa as the focus of the event,…

Yesterday was quite the day. I ran 18 miles and then spent the rest of the afternoon drinking, which seems to happen quite often during my marathon training. It was pouring rain when I woke up, so I considered moving my long run to Sunday, but I really didn’t want to put it off. I knew running 18 miles (+ recovery time) would take up most of my day, so I just wanted to get…

After renting a power-washer for the deck and priming the bathroom walls for painting, Mal and I were more than ready to kick up our feet and relax yesterday afternoon, so we headed to Tory Row in Harvard Square for dinner. We started with a round of drinks. Beer for him. Wine for me. Harvard Square is an amazing place for people-watching. The fashion choices alone kept us entertained! While enjoying the sights and sounds…

Date night is a big deal in our house. Mal and I talk about it all day long before it happens. If you were hanging out with us, you’d probably get annoyed because we chat non-stop about it. I guess we’re just really excited about a night out together. And, of course, yesterday was no different! We also get all dressed up and pretty ourselves for our date. Yesterday, I even went out and bought…

Chandra, Monica, and I spent the afternoon as tourists in Harvard Square. We wandered around, explored points of interest, snapped photos of those points of interest, and spent way too much time window shopping in Anthropologie. Of course, we had to visit Harvard Yard. I miss my old stomping grounds! I said ”˜hello’ to my old office window. It was bittersweet.   While at University Hall, Monica and Chandra gave John Harvard a little rub (on his foot). After…
