This past weekend was wonderful – it was the first in a while where we didn’t have too much on the agenda. I (as I’m sure many people do) have a tendency to over schedule myself. Especially on the weekends when I feel like I have to cram every last bit of fun and relaxation in (did I just say that I need to cram in fun and relaxation? Sad, but true).
Friday night we got to babysit Declan, Saturday I attended a wonderful yoga class taught by my fab friend Kate (more on her in a few – we need your help with something!) and then Sunday my sisters and I went to a bridal show and then a bunch of us tried out Sweet Cheeks Q in Fenway. It was great – the whole experience, decor, and vibe in the restaurant felt very authentic to me. I also loved the deeelicious pulled pork. I surprisingly didn’t love their mac ‘n’ cheese unfortunately…but their cole slaw definitely redeemed the negative feelings I had toward the mac ‘n’ cheese.
Saturday night Col and I wanted to make a tasty meal for a night in of hanging out and wedding chatter. We decided to try out our first recipe from the cook book my future mother-in-law gave us. That’s right, Mrs. T compiled a bunch of her and her families recipes and made an amazing, beautiful cook book! She printed out a copy for Colin and I for Christmas and it is honestly one of the best gifts I have ever received. I know Col and I will put it to good use together when we’re making dinner for each other and eventually for the little Colin and Colleen’s that will be running around one day. :)
Check out our meal! And scroll to the bottom for a special favor I need to ask of you, please…
Now on to the special favor, if you don’t mind! I will be heading to the Wanderlust Festival at Stratton Mountain in Vermont on the weekend of June 21-24. I am SO pumped for it and I truly think it’s going to be amazing (more on this soon). Anywho…my friend Kate entered their Facebook photo contest and I really hope she wins so I have a buddy to come to the event with me! All she has to do to win is to have the most “likes” on her photo….soooo if you don’t mind, please go to my Facebook profile and click on the photo I shared of Kate striking a yoga pose. Then click “like” and it will count toward her votes! Thank you SO MUCH in advance!
Here is the photo to look out for on my Facebook profile:
