Weekend Recap

Why do the weekends always go by so fast?  The weather this weekend was gorgeous and I just wish it would stay this way for a few more weeks!  Luckily I got outside to enjoy the warm and sunny days this weekend.

 My weekend started out with picking up my iPhone 5 (I had reserved one online the night before)!  It is my first white iPhone.  It is very pretty and much lighter than the previous iPhones! 

My bloggy friend who blogs over at Many Waters was is in town visiting her family so we were able to meet up at the Wrentham Village outlets on Saturday.  I was very excited to meet her baby who is now 3 months old.  She slept most of the time and let us shop but woke up at the end so that I could meet her.  She is adorable!

Oh and it must be recorded in writing. . . I did not buy anything!  Shocking I know.  I had to have self control since I had bought my new iPhone 5 that morning!  I figured that was a big enough treat for the weekend. 

Saturday night I went to a wine tasting party at Kendall's house.  The Traveling Vineyard company came to Kendall's house and provided everything.  It was fabulous!  We tasted 5 wines and out of the ones we tasted the Fissata BlondeMoscato was my favorite.  I bought a bottle and look forward to drinking it!  

Check out this company and host a party!  It was such a fun girls night in!

Sunday morning Ilka, Sheryl and I went down to Ports and Company for our Fashion Plates fittings.  Last year I went alone so I was excited to have some friends (and opinions) with me this year!

When we arrived Erin was just finishing her fitting so we got to check out what she would be wearing on Nov 2nd too!

Then we got to work.  We all tried on a lot of different clothes.  It was so fun to see what Ilka and Sheryl were trying on too.  We all ended up with three beautiful outfits and I can't wait to see how they all come together at the show!

Here is a sneak peak at my three outfits in the order I'll be wearing them. . .

Are you intrigued?!

All I will say is that one of the outfits is something I would NEVER have picked out for myself or imagined myself wearing.  But everyone loved it so I figured I'd go for it.  Might as well go big or go home right!?  Ha!

All that shopping (yes we each bought something other than our Fashion Plates outfits which I'll share later this week) made us very hungry!  We went to Alma Nove in the Hingham Shipyard.  I've been dying to try this restaurant as it is owned by Mark and Donny Wahlberg's brother Paul who is also the chef.  

It did not disappoint.  The food was delicious.  The setting is beautiful.  I would love to go back for dinner and drinks at some point.  

We had such a nice afternoon together.  I am very excited for Fashion Plates which is only 11 days away!!

What did you do this weekend.  Link up and tell me!

P.S. I really wanted to go to the Head of the Charles this weekend but never made it with everything else going on.  So if you went be sure to blog about it and tell me how it was!


  1. Sounds like a fun and fulfilling weekend! The Head of the Charles was beautiful. Thanks to the gorgeous weather, it was nice to just sit and watch a few races :)

  2. what a super fun weekend! :) and I loooove that short sleeved sweater shirt you're wearing in one of the last photos-so cute!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend!! Can't wait to see your Fashion Plates outfits! And I'm very jealous of your iPhone5... I'm not eligible for an upgrade until February!

  4. Alma Nove ROCKS. I just went there with C and my parents a few weekends ago but I went last year for my birthday too. Lobster mashed potatoes FTW!

  5. Fun weekend! You are always doing fun stuff :)

  6. YAY for getting your new phone! Also, looking forward to seeing the oufits! :)
