Sleepover Of The Year!

A couple weekends ago my nieces and my cousin Katelyn's niece sleptover. Katelyn and I are living together right now and we thought it would be fun to have the girls over. It was a giggle fest! Oh and whoever may have thought that girls are quieter than boys were wrong! Ha!

I took a pic of them taking a selfie. There selfie is below! Too funny!

It was a chilly night but that didn't stop us from going for ice cream for dessert! Plus we needed to walk around a bit so they could burn some energy!!!

They were up bring and early the next morning with plenty of time for decoration pumpkins, playing BINGO, manicures by Katelyn and fort building! All before 10 AM!!!!

It was fun and I'm glad we could get the girls together since they don't get to see each other too often!

Happy Halloween!

My nieces are very cute. . . especially in their Halloween costumes! See for yourself!!!

Head Of The Charles Regatta

Another one of my favorite fall traditions is Head of the Charles Regatta. I must admit that I hardly ever pay attention to any of the actual races but just all the excitement buzzing around the river is so much fun! I always thought it would have been fun to row (except for the early morning practices)!

It was a beautiful day and even though I got their late in the afternoon there was still a lot going on. My only disappointment was not being able to find fried dough for the 2nd year in a row. What the heck?!

To read my past posts from Head Of The Charles go here for 2014 and here for 2013!

Cranberry Harvest Celebration 2015

Last year I went to the annual Cranberry Harvest Celebration for the first time. You can read about it more here! We had such a great time that we knew we'd be back this year. It did not disappoint. It was a couple weekends ago and the weather could not have been more perfect!

I love the contrast between the color of the cranberries and the color of the sky. It is just so beautiful! This is what is called a "wet harvest" where they "flood" the cranberry bog to make all the cranberries float and then they can gather them!

We ran into one of my college friends, Danielle! It was so nice to catch up with her and her family (and she is the one who originally told me about this awesome event so only fitting I would see her there)!

The festival is divided into two sections - this section is where you can actually see the cranberries being harvested, go on a wagon ride through the tour, see an owl show and there are tents with lots of samples! The other side of the festival has lots of food vendors, crafts, and activities for the kids. It is a huge festival!

The sky was so blue! It was so nice to be outside all day but let me tell you it is a long day! I was exhausted by the time we left! They really do a nice job putting this festival together and I'm so glad I got to go again this year. This fall really has been amazing weather wise and living in New England gives so many great opportunities to really enjoy fall! I love it!

Fashion Plates Brunch - Where Models Actually Eat!

Fashion Plates is just 39 days away which is SO exciting because it is such a fun day but also a bit sad because November means colder, darker days in Boston. So let's just focus on the positive! In case you haven't heard the news I'm modeling again this year after a year off and I couldn't be more excited!

Yesterday the Fashion Plates Committee and the models got together for brunch. I don't know what you've heard about models in regard to eating but let me set the record straight. . . Fashion Plates models like to eat (and drink champagne)! Check out the food below. Piper is always such a gracious hostess to open her home to all of us. We had such a nice time.

In addition to eating, drinking and talking we got done to business too. We stuff invitations and scheduled are fittings with the two stores who will be dressing us. I'm so excited to find out what I'll be wearing!

I would love to have a table (or two) filled with friends and family to cheer me on as I walk the runway! So buy your tickets now and make sure to put my name down as "table captain."
