Everything was amazing, I am still thinking about that meal! I also loved our afternoon at Balans Spa, our shopping spree at the Lindt chocolate store, and my stop at Flour Bakery! It was such a fun girls weekend. Boston is a great city and I hope to go back soon!

  1. Nice that the farm trip was free. We find that to be true ~ the best memories are in many cases free! Lots of plans this weekend. Although we live pretty near Niagara Falls, we almost never go. Heading to the Maid of the Mist today though to see the Falls with some out of town folk and then out to eat. Like that idea of red, white and blue salsa.

  2. Mmmm you got me with those Salted Caramel Stuffed Nutella Cups. And thanks for the red, white, and blue salsa recipe! I’ve been trying to come up with some fun patriotic foods for Monday, but so far only had sweets on my list ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Love the Bios Urn. I don’t want to be buried in the ground, but to one day be part of a tree? That I can get into – pun intended. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. We have a Barcelona Wine Bar here in New Haven, CT, so you should definitely check it out if you make it out this way! Glad you had fun in Boston, it was the PERFECT weekend for it. Happy 4th of July to you and the boys!

  5. Whoa! Bio urns? My husb and I have been talking about getting cremated instead of buried, but I thought we’d just dump each other (whoever goes first) down a hill or something. I hate cemeteries and never go, so it feels a bit hypocritical to get myself buried in one. The bio urns look much cooler. I’m sending him the link. Thanks!
