This weekend was jam packed with stuff! I started Saturday with a progressive 7 mile run, and then came home, and we had breakfast on the deck with the Bean. She loves it out there.
We headed on over to Assembled at Assembly Square. It’s a weekly event through September, and it’s a food truck-meets-Boston Etsy sellers event. We liked it! I managed to find a couple of gluten free options.
We had a dinner reservation at Carmen in the North End, but since we had some time to kill (and I needed to do a little shopping) so we made our way to Nordstrom.
I got a couple pairs of shoes including a pair of gold Sperry boat shoes. I randomly looked in at some really pretty dresses in Brooks Brothers, and I bought this black one and another liberty print spring dress. There was a 40% off sale, and the sales associate was so sweet, he gave me 25% off the item I was buying which was full price. Guess who has a customer for life?? I’m a sucker for good customer service.
On Sunday, I ran an early 10 miler, and then picked up Chelsea for a self-assembled north shore yarn crawl and lunch at Life Alive in Salem. Chelsea bought a boatload of yarn, and I’m excited to see what she’ll do with her haul. I got a couple of skeins of Debbie Bliss Rialto which was on sale for 25% off. Sold! I want to make myself the Foliage hat for next winter. I bought it in white. So pretty.
And finally, I managed to squish in a little bit of food prep before the weekend came to a close.
I did a quick roast of asparagus, mushrooms, carrots, zucchini and tofu. I also made my usual favorite: sweet potato! It’s a short week this week because we’re leaving on Friday for Martha’s Vineyard for Memorial Day.
Happy Monday folks!
