enjoying my time
Hi friends! I’ve been pretty boring this week so there’s not much to share. I’ve basically been spending my vacation/unemployment at various coffee shops studying for my LCSW exam. How cool is this place? I was reading and drinking all while staring outside of an open window at the streets of Boston. Tough life.
I also had a wonderful meal with a friend in Salem, Mass. We ate our salad bar meals while sitting on a deck on the water. I know, I know- stressful.
Yes that’s right. Two plates. What kind of restaurant gives out dinky ass plates when one’s whole meal is the salad bar. Get with the program here people.
Eleanor has also been having a good week visiting various dog parks and swimming in the Charles River. I busted her sleeping while half standing on the couch. My little rat. So quirky.
I went to a fancy fundraising event last night in support of Community Servings, a Boston agency that provides meals to those in need. It was held at a new spa on Newbury Street and let me tell you– all the women were in their tightest, shortest dresses and their highest heals. I, on the other hand, didn’t know about that dress code and just looked like my normal self with some eye shadow. Good enough. The best part about spending the evening with skinny hot chicks is that no one touched the cheese platters which meant more for me. And touch the cheese platter I did.
I cannot explain how incredible the blue cheese was. Heaven. I had about four pieces of bread with loads and loads cheese, dried fruit and some veggies. Mostly cheese though.
The free drinks were flowing and oh so beautiful. I don’t exactly know what they were but I do know that there was an edible hibiscus flower at the bottom of the glass. What a nice touch!
The spa was to die for though it’s definitely pricey. 30 bucks for a manicure? No thanks. We left with a goodie bag that contained…. wait for it….. two cookies!! It’s the small things, folks.
Did anyone watch Greys last night????? LOVE.
