Rejoice! Friday is here! I never thought we would get here! TGIF, indeed. It was a long hard week at work, and I was juggling a few projects, wearing a few hats, but now I'm ready for the weekend to begin. What are your plans for the weekend?

On Saturday, the Mr. and I will be heading to his hometown in the Boston area for what he calls an "unofficial" high school reunion of sorts. "Unofficial" because it will just be a bunch of old friends hanging out in a Boston pub reminiscing and meeting each other's significant others. Now, as you may know, I'm an LA girl and have adopted New York as my home for the past 10+ years. Over the nearly five years we have been married, I have gotten to know Boston a little better, and the charms of Beantown have been growing on me. Any native Bostonians want to share a shopping or food suggestion? I probably won't have too much time, but love having an idea on hand in case I have an hour to spare.

Hope you enjoy this Father's Day weekend, friends... and check out these weekend links if you have a spare moment!

Margot said...

Have a great weekend! Your plans sound great.
I will be packing, because I'm moving away in a couple of weeks and need to get started filling boxes etc...not fun, but at least I'll listen to music.

Thanks for passing by.

Thanks for your lovely comments. I had a wonderful time, but I'm exhausted! Glad to be back home in New York...

Haute-Shopper: Can't wait to see your report of the Paris pop-up shop!

Margot: Oof. Moving is never fun, but I love that just moved in feeling after the hard work has settled...

LJ: Wow. The Tate Modern is my fav. Can't wait to see your shopping finds. ;)
