Thoughts from a Tuesday

Life

Why is pretty much my only thought. I took this picture from the Mass Ave bridge in Boston. It used to be my blog header (and still kinda is) because it reminds me that after every sunset there’s a sunrise and a brand new day. Hope. Bostonians are wicked strong. Yesterday was horrific, and my heart goes out to all those who were hurt, killed, scared, or simply didn’t get to finish something they worked so hard for.…

A Meat House Thanksgiving {Review + Giveaway}

Cooking

Way back when I lived in Boston, I stumbled upon a modern butcher shop of sorts, called The Meat House. The store wasn’t close to our apartment, so we only shopped there once, but we did enjoy the wide variety of meat and the neighborhood grocery feel. So, when the social media coordinator asked me if I would like the opportunity to review something from the store, I wanted to say sure! Only, I was asked to prepare a Meat…

Boston Bridesmaid

Travel

Wow. What a weekend! I traveled to Boston to be a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding. Everything appeared to go exactly as planned and I had a blast: Friday night, the groom’s parents hosted a lovely rehearsal dinner at the Nashoba Valley Winery. The setting was beautiful and the food fantastic! I sipped on red wine, but the beer was very tasty too! Dinner was a full three course meal and the winery used a lot of fresh, local ingredients!…

Bowl on a Plate

Life Travel

It comes once a week – you know it’s my fav: the Mexican bowl! Although there’s no big bowls in my sublet, so I had to eat this on a plate. Well, I was able to scoop up most of it with chips. Speaking of bowls. I love Atlanta; I love our little apartment here, but I think I’m ready to be in my own space again. It’s funny how I notice the little things about being away from home.…

We spent all day on Friday just walking around, visiting our favorite spots. We started bright and early in Quincy market and walked all the way to our old neighborhood near Northeastern. We stopped for lunch at the MET Bar on Newbury street and enjoyed a wonderful glass…

Breather

Just taking a quick breather here to say hello.  We drove straight from the airport to my parent’s house because we’re getting up up 5:45 to attend Matt’s sister’s graduation from Wake Forest in the morning!  We had an absolutely perfect weekend – the weather was phenomenal and the food fantastic.  Being back was bittersweet though because we sure do miss our city and our friends! And the bridal shower was a huge success! Recap coming tomorrow…night!…

Howdy. How are you? You know it’s bad when you take two Tylenol PM and still can’t sleep. Talk about a zombie. Now I know why Michael Jackson kept upping his dose. Miraculously, I felt a billion times better when I woke up and got to work today. I’m really plowing through my to-do list and I will meet all my deadlines very soon! T minus 3 weeks to go!!! After work, Matt helped me throw together a fabulous summer…
