My husband and I had the house to ourselves this weekend and took full advantage of it. We had nobody to answer to and just kept busy all weekend.
Our weekend started early Friday afternoon.
My husband still knows how to start the weekend off right.
We drove into Boston
We met up with the "kids" from work. The bar we went to is right on the water with Boston Harbor views. It is the same place we went to a few weeks ago. It is a dive, but it is fun.
We stopped at Newbury Street first so that I could exchange an Alex and Ani bracelet my oldest daughter got me for my birthday. The one she got for me was too heavy. I picked this one instead.
A queens crown. I love the little jewels on it. I don't have any Alex and Ani's like it.
I actually wanted a different one but they were out of stock.
When we got home it was still pretty early. We went out at 2:00 pm so I knew it would be an early night. We spent a few hours in the jacuzzi when we got home. I went out earlier in the day to Bath and Body Works and picked up my stress relief products. We ended up taking a jacuzzi Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We like our jacuzzi obviously. When I tell my kids we are in the jacuzzi, they say they don't want to hear it. Why? I think they get the wrong impression (or maybe not). We usually spend 2 to 3 hours just relaxing in there. There is nothing like it. Some of the conversations we have had in there.....It's a great way to reconnect. It could be one of the reasons we will be celebrating 27 years of marital bliss in two days? Even a tub would work. I encourage everyone to try it. Dont forget the candles!
Saturday was spent sunning ourselves in the morning. We went shopping in the afternoon where I scored these.
Thanks honey! I have a hard time finding boots because the calf is always too big. We spent all last winter just looking for boots that didn't gap open. I finally found a pair mid winter. These are very snug and perfect. I wanted to get a jump on my search even though I wont be wearing them for awhile.
We also got a lot of kitchen items that needed replacing. It was time for some new things. When we got home, we ordered new every day dishes that we had seen online. We didn't find any we liked while we were out.
We barbecued and jacuzzied
On Sunday, we had a family cookout at my Uncle's in Gloucester. It was a beautiful day, until we decided to stop and go to the beach for awhile before we went home. He is about 5 minutes away from Good Harbor Beach so we couldn't resist. It is my favorite beach. It was very cloudy when we got there and we saw the sun for maybe 5 minutes. We only stayed for about an hour.
See the house on the left looking out on the water? I want to live there.
Monday consisted of candlelight breakfast, mimosa's all day and tanning. It was a day to relax.
We were going to go out for breakfast all weekend long but never made it there. I wanted to show my husband some love anyway. Eggs (any kind) are one of my specialities to cook. My husband loves his bacon.
We had a great weekend. Usually our anniversary falls on Labor Day but not this year, so we just celebrated a little early. We will be celebrating again this coming weekend. Not a bad deal.
Today everyone is home and back to work. My husband even had to go into the office today. I have the house to myself and I am going to relax. I am thinking its a day to catch up on some of the ridiculous shows that I watch (and do all of the laundry and towels from all of those jacuzzi's).
It is a very dreary day here.
Back to reality I guess. Its OK, its a short week right?
Enjoy your week!
