Weekend Recap

This weekend will be known as the first weekend in a really long time that I went out on Friday AND Saturday night.  Sad but true.  I had good reasons with a different friend in town visiting each night!

 Friday night I picked Taylor up at South Station on my way home from work.  She had taken the bus down from Maine.  She was flying home to Lake Tahoe yesterday but stayed with me on Friday night so we could go out.  

We made our way downtown and we're so happy to see Boston in the Christmas spirit a little early this year!  Everything looked so pretty.  

 I had such a busy day at work on Friday that I never got to eat lunch so needless to say I was starving by the time we got to the restaurant.  I went for a very healthy choice of chicken mac and cheese. Ha!  It was so good!  

While at dinner Taylor got up to go to the bathroom.  She grabbed her phone.  I said, "Don't bring your phone to the bathroom, you might drop it in the toilet."  {I spoke from experience}

Well a few minutes later she came back and showed me her phone which was a blank white screen.  She said, "I can't believe it but I just dropped my phone in the toilet!"

Seriously.  She did.  I couldn't help it.  I laughed.  I mean really what are the odds!?

Been there.  Done that.  It sucks but the good news was that she was due for an upgrade and was able to get an iPhone 4s the next day.

We had a really fun night (despite the phone in the toilet incident).  She tells me she is moving back to Boston in the spring.  I don't want to get my hopes up so I'll believe it when I see it.  (Although rumor has it that she is smitten with that new baby nephew and he just happens to live very close by to me)! 

Saturday I went to Noelle's baby shower.  Her baby boy is due to arrive in January!  The shower was really nice and she got a lot of great gifts.  Oh and how great does she look?  You can't even tell she is pregnant in that dress!  

Saturday night I went back downtown to hang out with another friend who was visiting for the weekend.  Cathy was in town from Buffalo and a bunch of us went to dinner at Nix's Mate.  It was REALLY good.

I had the Sunday Bloody Sunday cocktail.  It was just ok - a little strong tasting and not sweet enough.

I then had the Mama Nevin's Tomato Soup for a starter and it was delicious.  Then for an entree I had the Roasted Half Chicken which was so good.  I would definitely recommend it.

We went to an Irish Pub after dinner and it was a lot of fun.  It was nice to catch up with Cathy and the other girls too.  Only downside to the night. . . I lost my new black infinity scarf and it was only the 2nd time I had worn it.  Major bummer!

So you are wondering what I did on Sunday???

SLEPT!  Yup pretty much what I did ALL day!  

I stayed in bed and caught up on all my shows that were on the DVR.  It was wonderful!

Great weekend with great friends.  Now it is a 3 day work week which is the best news EVER!

Really looking forward to Thanksgiving on Thursday!!!


  1. Gotta love weekends with girlfriends!! That mac and cheese looks amazing!!

  2. I love those trees! I can't wait to put up Christmas decorations!

  3. Wow she did what you warned her of...toilet and phone. Nice to get out with friends any time

  4. Looks like a great weekend! Sometimes I wish I lived close to a big city like that with all the lights and cool restaurants! And omg-- my phone has met the toilet too. No fun...
