Long time no see guys!
Sometimes it's just nice to take a break and that's exactly what I needed to do last week. No worrying about posting, taking pictures, etc...
Well I'm back to share our busy weekend! On Saturday night it was our friend Marissa's birthday excursion to Patriot Place! I've shared adventures in Patriot Place before and this one was just as fun! We hit up a few new-to-me spots which was great- I always love checking out new places!
The first was Saga, a Hibachi restaurant where we had dinner. I am not a huge fan of Hibachi at all but I actually enjoyed myself at dinner. I appreciated that the cook asked whether or not we wanted saki rather then just squirting it in everyone's mouth (I've had a bad experience at a local Hibachi restaurant...not everyone wants to drink!) and the food was good, which I always can appreciate.
After dinner we headed to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar. I had never been in this bar either, it was very country. The band playing did mix it up a little bit so we were able to enjoy other songs besides just country, but for the most part...it was pretty country.
We had a good time though, enjoying a couple of drinks and the company of Marissa's 22nd birthday crew! (Yes, the fact that she's ONLY 22 is making me feel pretty old right now)
Excuse the grainy cell phone pictures...Someday I will have a nice camera!
Sunday morning started early since my mom and I had a baby shower to attend! Rachel is expecting a little girl in January and we were excited to head to the Madison Beach Hotel to shower her!
Of course what is a baby shower without babies?!
My mom couldn't get enough of Bella! She is a cuddly little girl and my mom just wanted to keep holding her :)
Emma and Bella has quite the escape plan though, they spent most of their time standing in the window staring out at the ocean.
So cute! These girls certainly kept the whole table on their toes when they were let loose!
It was a great shower and nice to see everyone that I don't see very often! I can't believe how Rachel's belly is growing- it's so crazy to think a baby will be here before we know it!
This picture is when my mom told me that if we rubbed Rachel's belly we would get a wish. So I wished for a million dollars :)
It seems like only a few years ago we were back in 6th grade writing notes back and forth. Now we are trying to be grown ups?!
This last picture is when Rachel's sister Ally said that we looked like we were both glowing in the pictures she was taking. I said "I hope I'm not glowing" No babies over here anytime soon!
I hope everyone else had a fabulous weekend as well!
