Weekend In Boston

I had a relatively "quiet" weekend.  I stayed home!  No Cape Cod.  No New Hampshire.  Just Boston!  And guess what?  It was a GREAT weekend!

I already blogged about our MS Fundraiser at The Paint Bar so if you missed that be sure to check it out here.

On Saturday I set out for a training walk. I took the T downtown and walked home. My motivation was to see pretty sights which would help my walk go faster! Walking through the Boston Common and Public Gardens is always a favorite!

I also wanted to see #CoolGlobes which are on display in Boston right now. Think Cows on Parade but instead of cows it's globes!  They are very cool and I enjoyed checking them out.

This one, in honor of the Boston Marathon, is beautiful! I love what it represents!

The Forum which is where the second bomb went off finally reopened Friday night! I looked at pictures online and it is gorgeous! Check it out!

I then made my way to the Charles River and walked the rest of the way home with beautiful views of Boston!  I walked 8 miles and felt great!

On Sunday I met up with my friend Michelle. She is due next week with her first baby and I can't wait to meet him or her!
We had an amazing buffet brunch atThe Foundry. It is only $15 and SO good! So many delicious options. I'll be back for sure!

I did a few other things but was a bad blogger and forgot to take pics!! Overall I had a great weekend in Boston!

Don't forget about my Stella and Dot fundraiser. . .
One necklace worn three ways!  I've had a few people comment to me that Stella and Dot stuff is too expensive.  I'll agree that many of the items are a bit pricey but it is worth it.  Their stuff is unique and beautiful.  I worn this necklace with three different outfits and it looked so pretty with each one.

It is a little hard to tell in my iPhone selfies but left: kelly green shirt, center: chambray shirt/white tank/mint shorts, right: mint top.  So while this necklace might be considered expensive it is something that can be worn with SO many different things.  I can't wait to find something else in my closet to pair it with! 

My Stella and Dot ONLINE party is open until Aug 26th.  This is my last fundraiser before the MS Challenge Walk and I need to raise as much as possible.  So shop away!  Here is the link.

Linking up with Leeann!

  13. Just popped over from Another Clean Slate and I'm glad I did! I LOVE Boston (I live in CT and went to BU) and I was just at most of the places you posted about when I was in town for the Jay-Z and JT concert at Fenway. I think I was more excited to run near the Charles then to see the show!! Great post and great pictures...
