So, that was a bit of a surprise hiatus, huh?

It was honestly unintentional, but I have been SO overwhelmed by the process of planning a surprise birthday celebration for the boy that I completely lost touch with almost everything else in my life - from working out to blogging, and even showering when I needed to (gross, I know).

I never realized how difficult it can be to coordinate plans across multiple groups of friends, and to do it without the help of someone close to you - and without them finding out. In the end, I miraculously pulled it off; he was shocked, excited, and incredibly appreciative, and that's all I could even ask for - but, save a few unfortunate events, I had a really good time myself. For most of my life I was a fairly antisocial kind of girl and was always the invitee, not the invitOR, and in a lot of ways, this past weekend helped me prove something to myself, as selfish as it might sound.

Here's a quick glimpse of what I've been up to...

Friday night surprise in Faneuil Hall.

 Dinner at the Tequila Table at Papagayo on Saturday - SO good.

 Girls pic at sunset.

 Awkward family photo with Wally on Sunday.

 A gorgeous Sunday funday at Fenway with a few good friends.

So...excuse me while I go detox for the rest of the summer. But no more hiatuses, of course. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!


  1. That's SO fun that you were able to pull of a surprise party! I think about doing that every year for my bf's bday, but I never can get it together in time. MAJOR kudos to you :)

    1. Thank you! It was definitely stressful for the month leading up to it - and even though there were a few bumps in the road, the look on his face was 100% worth it. And in retrospect, even though my blood pressure was probably up a few points, I had a good time planning it - and I learned a lot for my next time around :)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments - each one truly makes my day!
