Friday was one of those perfect New England days. It was cool in the shade and hot in the sun. I spent my lunch hour totally surrounded by these flowers.
The entire courtyard is covered in them. I spent my lunch hour noshing on a sandwich and reading.
After work I went for a walk to kill time until Dave was done. He had to work late for a big deadline he has coming up. I got myself a little treat of the pink bracelet to add to my collection. It's my birthstone. I adore personalized things. Each charm means and represents something special.Well except for the 5 Lucky magazine gave me to start met out! They are the bead and plain ones.
There was no way after Dave getting out late, sitting in Friday night traffic were we going to sit in more traffic just to get groceries so we attempted a new to us place that claimed GF options. I got the very not GF gnocchi which I had never had in a restaurant before. I can't rave enough about how perfect texture it was. I am a texture freak too. If I can't stand texture I gag. Totally embarrassing trait. I had just a small portion of this. Filling little buggers.
We had a nice weekend. Well part of it was nice. Part of it wasn't nice. Dave had to work both days but we still got out and went on a little adventure.
I wasn't sure if my outfit was amazing or horrible. I decided semi amazing. It was a dolmen(??) sleeve kimono jacket with a worn grey t, skinnyish jeans and heeled sandals.
Sunshine + BB Cream + front facing ifone camera (low quality) = super amazing clear looking skin! My skin is a wreck right now so I am going to pretend that is what I really look like. DUDE!I don't have any foundation on just the BB Cream which is like black magic. I can't even rave enough about it. I will look to see if I can link you. I got it in a Korean grocery store.
On our drive on Saturday between Dave's epic working sessions we ended up at our favorite farm. I went to visit the pony. She now has blunt bangs!
Same farm different pony that also had fun hair from 2009 in video below. (I just noticed for first time Dave is snickering as he films it)
I got the maple candy I've been craving.
Dave said it was sweeter than he remembered and left him buzzing. I called him a lightweight and snorted more sugar. (kidding!)
I brought home some jam from the farm too. Strawberry rhubarb and spiced apple butter.
Then yesterday Dave worked all day so I took the opportunity to do my nails.I've been so insanely lazy about doing anything to them. I hadn't stamped in I can't even tell you how long.
How was your weekend? What did you do? What did you eat?
other than the gnocchi we had veggie chicken quesadillas yesterday. Much jokes were made.
