Weekend in Pictures

May 22, 2017 in About Me / College

What a lovely weekend it was. All the fam time this weekend which was amazingggg. ๐Ÿ™‚


I spent the day in the city with my BFF Paige. We got Dig Inn for lunch and walked around after. ๐Ÿ™‚


After getting home, I headed to the track for a workout. It was SO beautiful hot. Really hot but man I loved it.

Hit the hay kinda early ish for me that night too. After ice cream of course.


Up at 6:30 a.m. b/c my brother’s COLLEGE GRADUATION WAS THIS DAY. So friggin’ crazy guys.

Stopped at Dunkin’ along the way because we really did need some Dunkin to help keep us awake. The ceremony was awesome, and we just missed the rain. (Thank ya God!) My mom and I, scratch that- all of us- were pretty sappy that day. Just super proud of my bro for finishing this chapter of his life. Onto the next one he goes! ย (how is that going to be me in two years too???)




Proud Sister. Love my family so incredibly much.

Before driving back, we enjoyed a nice lunch out. Had some yummy crab cakes and the bro got swordfish that looked amazing. All the fish there was making me so happy.


I woke up, enjoyed my oats and mug of coffee pretty slowly. Love having that time to actually just breathe and take life in during the mornings.

I went to the gym with my dad and trained back, legs, and abs. We took a sauna together afterwards which was nice. I’m in LOVE with sauna’s lately.

Dad and I hit up Home Depot and I got some new plants for my garden! After a shower and lunch it was time to put my semi-new green thumb to work.

green thumb

Planted some peppermint, lavender, SWEET POTATOES, red bell peppers, and sunflowers. ๐Ÿ™‚

My best friend came over and sat by the pool with me a bit before she had to work. We talked and caught up on life and it was just what I needed. Sunshine + best friend= all the happy feels friends.

After she left, I did some poolside yoga. Loved being out in the sunshine and just flowing.

Do as Buddha says ;)

Enjoyed the flows and sunshine in my new & favorite “Buddha Says Relax” Shirt.

This weekend was definitely one of lots of family time, reflection time, relaxation, and feel-good activities.ย 

Now tell me: one highlight from your weekend?ย 

Have you ever been to Dig Inn?! If you’re in Boston 1000/10 recommend.ย 

Sending all the love to YOU.ย <3

    Digg Inn looks amazing! Your brother graduated in Boston? I have another blogger friend whose brother graduated in Boston this weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚ And planting and digging my toes in the dirt always makes me happy!!! I didn’t plant that much this year, but I have been pulling weeds which is kind of cool because it means we’ve had lots of rain!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So jealous that you have a garden! My family had a plot in a community garden for a few years. It was hot and sweaty and hard work, but it was so rewarding.
    Congrats to your brother! What’s his degree in?

    I am totally going to plant sweet potatoes this summer OMG. Such a great idea.
    One highlight from my weekend was going out to dinner with my mom and sister and ordering cheesecake for dessert. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish I had space for a garden…and then I remember I don’t have time to tend to it and nothing would grow… hahaha
    My weekend was grand in that I decided to move in July, so I got confirmation on the renting of my current apartment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You’re growing sweet potatoes?!?! That is legit veggie growing, girl! The most impressive thing we’ve grown is corn ๐Ÿ˜›
