I had a busy weekend that reminded me over and over again just how blessed I am.
Saturday morning I participated in the walk to end lupus with my 6 closest friends… We raised over $3,000 in a few weeks and can’t wait to make it an annual event. Stay tuned for more on this.
Then I jumped in the car and we drove to Mohegan Sun for the Eric Church concert to surprise one of my guy’s closest friends. Spending the weekend with people who adore him so much just reconfirms to me how lucky I am to have such a great guy.
We stopped at the Honeypot Hill Orchards in Stow for fresh apples, pears and some delicious cider donuts on the way home.
While this weekend was for V’s birthday – I think I would call it top 10 weekends for meee! Friday night we met a few of my friends after work then headed to Southie where we dinned at Paramount South Boston, one of the amazing restaurants I used to work for. Chef Gabe was there and brought out countless dishes for us to try.
We rang in the big 25 across the street with Irish Car Bombs. YUM.
Saturday evening we headed back to Southie to new-ish restaurant called Local 149. With the edgy hipster feel the food and drinks were outstanding.
We headed to a few other places and ended Sat night at Whiskey Priest with all of our friends from home! There is just something about being in the comfort of the people you grew up with that feels so good.
Sunday was supposed to be the real birthday party – it was a day brunch at Gem Night Club. We did something similar to this in NYC at Lavo and its one of those that will go in my “once in a lifetime” buckets. Gem wasnt bad though, it was actually pretty fun. Great DJs, the best friends, drinks flowing…. made for quite the Sunday funday… I have to say… work on Monday isnt so hot.
TGIF – I never say that – usually because I work on the weekend at some point and lately they just haven’t been all that exciting. I am truly looking forward to this weekend. I am kicking it off with a hair appointment at the ultra professional Jeffery Lyle Salon on after work

then out to celebrate with a few friends from work + then to my fav part of boston … Southie 🙂
Saturday (i am working so lets skip that) marks the 25th bday of my BFFL! WOOOO
Yes we still celebrate like we are 21 accept we are 25 and can handle our booze (and go drink for drink) as well as the next guy. My BFFL turns 25 this Sunday and we are heading to GEM nightclub for a little partay brunch on Sunday! I am SOOO looking forward to it!!
Its crazy to think we have been friends for 10 years but I wouldn’t change a single thing. What do you guys have planned for the weekend?
