Celebrate Good Times!!!

Well, I have had a crazy couple of days with lots and lots of celebrating (AKA eating). Last night I went over to Laura's house for her birthday celebration.

Unfortunately, I did a little too much celebrating and forgot to take pictures. So, I will sum it up with words and you can visit Laura's blog for the pictures. We did some quality eating with dips, cheeses, flat bread, bark and Brie dip. We had some delicious drinks that included pumpkin beers and wine. We did some intense chatting and then a little dancing at the Bell in Hand in  Faneuil Hall. It was a great night, minus the 2 mile walk home at 2am in high heels because there were NO cabs ANYWHERE!! I have never been SOOOOOOO uncomfortable in my whole life!!! Errrrrr Boston cab sitch!!!

Needless to say I woke up today feeling not up to par. However, I still had energy and hunger to meet a good friend for Breakfast at Paris Creperie in Coolidge Corner. This bustling little place had a lot of crepes to choose from including savory and sweet.

I decided on the Tuscan Crepe, which included a basil infused crepe, goat cheese, artichoke, spinach, marinara sauce, tomatos and olives. YUM!!!

This crepe was great and just as good as the one I had in Montreal. Very full from breakfast I decided to go for a little run before I attended my second birthday party of the weekend. I went for my first outdoor run since the 1/2 marathon. I felt great!!! I felt so free and flew through the whole run with a smile on my face. I ended up running 5.2 miles in 43 minutes with and average speed of 8:23/mile. Oh how I LOVE running!!!

After my run, I met up with the birthday boy:

My Dad
and family at Champion's for a birthday dinner. We had plans to go to another restaurant, but my dad wanted to watch the Pat's game and what better place to do that than Champions?

I ordered a Shipyard Pumpkin Ale to start; I know, really, another drink this week, but I couldn't resist.

I only ended up drinking 1/2 of it because it did not agree with my stomach (I was still recovering from last night). I did enjoy a lovely salad with salmon on top.

It was pretty good for pub food, but nothing incredible.

We decided to come back to my apartment for dessert. I had got some Party Favors cupcakes while I was in Coolidge Corner this morning to celebrate which included a pumpkin, chocolate and vanilla cupcake. My mom also made a pear and apple crisp.

I had a little taste of each.

A great ending to a great weekend! I hope you all had a great weekend and are rested up for the week!


  1. Cute outfit!!! I'm glad you had a good weekend :)

  2. Looks like a fun time! This is my first time stopping by your blog - love the name of it;) Adorable!

  3. I am the worst at taking pictures when I'm out. It's the great debate of whether or not they'll actually look fantastic or only like I've been drinking.

    Adorable outfit!
