A few weeks ago I led Bible study - I taught 1st Timothy 4... Definitely took a lot of preparation!
My walk to the train station...I love how beautiful this city is!
Obsessed with Affogatos. I'm sad that they're only offered during the month of August...it's become a weekly tradition now
Christie has been joining me for Affogatos - I think this is our first picture we've ever taken together! And we just so happened to wear matching coral sweaters...
Later that day I got to babysit these kiddos - movie night!
We did a great series on the Apostles' Creed - you should definitely check it out!
*gasp* they changed up the Chicken & Biscuits to Chicken & Waffles at Commonwealth! I like them both ways...
The next book I'm working through...
Oh happy day! I got the last pack of peanut m&m's
I'm kind of obsessed with Valerie Wieners art...
...like maybe just a little ;-)
How on earth have I been missing out on the wonderfulness that is nectarines for so long??? They're delicious! New favorite fruit...
On my walk last week - it's iconic
The cinnamon sugar brioche from Flour Bakery is just so...soooooooo good
Last week - dinner with my girlies, Loren and Sarah. I love the chips and dip trio you get at Lolita's
Lolita's always ends dinner with a green apple cotton candy with red pop rocks sprinkled in - I got a huge craving for them and had to go get some!
Last Saturday - one of the last lazy days of summer. Beach day with Lynnae, Kristin, and Melissa
No idea how there was so much purple sand...
Just laying out :)
The essentials - snacks, water, and a magazine
No trip to the North Shore would be complete without a stop at the Clam Box. Yeah you might wait in line for an hour just to place your order, but it's worth it ;-)
Sunday morning - up early to look after this girl while her parents worked on the set-up team
She was all smiles!
Couldn't you just EAT. HER. UP?!?!?
Baby dedication that day.
A premonition of what's to come...
Totally moved this lounge chair all by myself!
From the beginning of Simon's visit last week
Simon doing Simon-y things :)
Our starter - *love* fresh oysters!
And the view at our table
YUM (shot courtesy of Simon)
I just can't get over this view. I could totally be a beach bum if I lived some place where I got to see *this* every night
So. Much. Seafood. (Seafood scampi)
The next day, Simon and I headed to Wink & Nod for a pre-dinner cocktail
....and then we headed to The Beehive for dinner
We both got the Caprese Salad with tomato, mozzarella, crispy zucchini flower, and roasted corn to start - it was absolutely delicious!
We also got a side of roasted corn with sriracha butter (my mouth is watering as I type that) and I opted to get the Lemon organic chicken with greek bread salad, kale sprouts, mint, cukes, and yogurt. I hardly ever order chicken but this sounded amazing and I was not disappointed!
Getting ready for L'espalier - doing my hair and make up :)
I took the day after our big L'espalier dinner off from work since I knew we would be out late...the next day was absolutely gorgeous! We went for a walk around Beacon Hill and then along the Charles
Arthur Fiedler memorial
*Finally* got my Lumo Lift after ordering it off of KickStarter months ago! It helps you with your posture (vibrates when you slouch) and counts steps/calories. It's a great little device!
Ever since I got a smartphone I've been using the calendar on it, but I miss having an actual planner (I still have my planners from college and flip through them to see what I did years ago), so I got one!
It's *color coded* - yes I'm Type A. :-D
On my walk home after a bachelorette dinner for Vanessa last Thursday
South Station was all lit up too :)
Sometimes, life demands ice cream. In a cone. From JP Licks.
Finally started packing on Saturday. You don't realize how much stuff you have until you need to pack it.
I walked a mile JUST IN MY APARTMENT from packing. Am I the only one who thinks that's crazy?!
Cute chubby baby legs! Look at how adorable her socks are! This is one of the many reasons I love being the nursery teacher at church
On Sunday, Gloria and I went out to the USS Constitution.
She loved the museum! She put on a puppet show for me...
...and learned how to scrub the deck.
Art installation on my walk to work :)
And that's what I've been up to lately! Life is about to get a little hectic with my move, having 6 new roommates, church stuff, students moving back to Boston...*deep breath* Here we go!
