The Townie and I spent this past weekend on the Cape. A weekend of long talks, great food, and many kisses ( ūüėČ )¬† was exactly what we needed.

Fish and chips, with a few clam fritters is a must on my first summer weekend. It was way too easy to be part of the clean plate club.

Saturday afternoon was ice cream, a mini golf game and then real a bucket of balls at the driving range. I won in mini golf before he showed off his 250 yard driving skills in golf. 

As soon as I saw this sign from the street I knew the weekend couldn’t go by without trying the famous Marylou’s. The girl working there explained that they actually dissolve whipped cream into some of the specialty iced coffees (hence why I now consider it crack coffee). I got a small White Chocolate iced coffee and it was delicious.

I'd buy this iced coffee daily if it were closer


Wine, Stubb marinated and grilled steak tips, grilled veggie skewers and breadcrumb mac n cheese made for one ideal dinner.  
I think I have a new favorite grill master. ūüėČ ¬†¬†

The sun was shining so brightly into my room this morning that 6am felt like 8am. I kept thinking that the Townie and I overslept our alarms.

As annoying as it is to be sick (doctor’s appointment today, I’ll save the gross details but my cough confirmed it’s real sick and not just allergies), I woke up feeling really content.

Monday night I sat with 7 of the girls eating, drinking and celebrating 3 of them graduating from master’s programs.¬† It was my favorite kind of night. Relaxed with lots of catching up! ūüôā

Last night the Townie came over and we went for¬†a quick jog (I thought it might help me get over being sick) then picked up sandwiches from one of my favorite¬†restaurants, Parish Cafe, ¬†in Boston. I always get the Elephant Walking on Eggs but my friends rave about the Pudding Portobello sandwich and the The Regal Regis. What I love about Parish is that it’s a menu full of sandwiches that local chefs around Boston created specifically for this place. You just know that you don’t have to change anything about your order because it’s going to be that delicious just as they created it.

This weekend is full of fun stuff. Saturday the Townie and I are spending our first full day together (our schedules make for lots of nights and mornings but rarely an afternoon). We’re headed to check out an area where he might buy a condo and walk around. Then Saturday night we already bought tickets to see…

Sunday morning I’m running Boston’s Run to Remember with my friend K “for her birthday”.¬† After she’s hosting a bbq¬†at her place – which will be the first time my friends will really meet and get¬†to know¬†the Townie.

And in even more exciting news…my¬†friends and I officially booked our traditional week long summer¬†beach getaway¬†for this summer! ūüôā
