Hey! How was your weekend?
Mine flew by pretty fast, but I can say that I had a lot of fun which really helped balance out all the stress I was feeling at the end of last week. Friday couldn’t come soon enough for me! Friday, my husband & I went out for Thai food, which was amazing and I sadly inhaled it before photography its deliciousness.
Isn’t it funny that that’s sad to me now? Oh the life of blogging…
Saturday was spent mostly out and about in town. We hadn’t been down to Boston in a while, and I’d been itching to get back to this coffee house called The Thinking Cup. There’s two in Boston and they’re basically amazing. I went in for a quick latte a while back when my in-laws were here, but I never felt I got the full experience.
Well, let me tell you – I did not hold back! I ordered a medium pumpkin spice latte, a chocolate croissant, and the hubby & I split a sausage breakfast sandwich and some chocolate brownie cake.
Latte art just makes my soul happy 🙂
Everything was amazing, but the chocolate cake was the best. I’m not even a chocolate cake fan, but it basically tasted like a giant truffle. Aah. Mazing.
Saturday was actually the day of this huge parade in town for the Red Sox winning the World Series. K, now I know I live in Boston, but I have never been a sports fan and I don’t follow sports at all. So, no I am not really a Sox fan because, well, I’m just not a sports fan.
We kind of forgot the parade was going on, but we caught some of the leftover confetti from the end. I felt kind of silly being in town during this parade and not seeing it, but I would have to say my coffee house brunch was more my cup of tea any day.
After brunch and walking through confetti, we went to a used bookstore that I’d also been itching to get to for a while. It was totally different than I thought it would be, and there were really no recent titles in sight.
It was definitely worth the trip to look around at really old books, and they also had a lot of art as well. I ended up getting My Life in France, Julia Child’s memoir. I love anything French and the reviews on Amazon were good, so why not?
We did some more meandering in town at the farmer’s market. I always say I want to start shopping at the farmer’s market regularly, but some of the produce really didn’t look that good after all.
We picked up some avocados and pomegranates for really cheap that did look pretty good. I wanted strawberries, but they were all pretty shabby.
Then we went to an Italian grocery and got some fresh bread and pasta for dinner.
I wanted to buy every loaf! It all looked so delicious. On our way home from shopping, we walked past Paul Revere, of course decked out in a Sox Jersey.
Ya crazy Bostonians! I kind of love it.
Hope you have a happy Monday!
Questions for You:
- Do you “get” sports? Or are you one of those people who just doesn’t get it? Clearly I don’t get it 😉
- How often do you like to go out on weekends? I’d say I like to go out about half the time. The other half, I wanna be at home chilling out.
