Happy Memorial Day!
1. Showering Baby Jamie!
This weekend is the baby shower for Vera and Lori! Baby Jamie will arrive in August, and I can't wait to meet him/her! (Gender is still a mystery!) Excited to see the girls this Saturday!
2. Delicious Cake Pops!
My coworker Jess makes amazingly delicious cake pops, so I recruited her handiwork for the shower this weekend. YUM!
3. It's Memorial Day / Green Turtle Weekend!
We are avoiding traffic this year and staying local for the long weekend, and can't wait to spend it on a boat! When Scott's parents visit from CT, they stay on the Green Turtle floating B&B. It used to be docked in Winthrop, MA but has since moved to Charlestown. For Christmas, the Vollono's got us a gift certificate to stay on the boat so we are redeeming it this weekend. It's a great "almost a year til our wedding" celebration!
4. La Catrina
We tried out this cute little mexican restaurant up the street from us last night. They just remodeled and re opened this spring, and I'm so happy we are right down the street! I love mexican food, and margaritas, but find they are overpriced most places. (ahem, Lone Star Taco Bar) La Catrina has $6 margs! The decor is all about El Dia de los Muertos , which I am drawn to. I love the bright colors in the sugar skulls and the idea of celebrating and visiting with the spirits of loved ones who have passed. Anyway - the restaurant had delicious food, great prices, and friendly staff! Can't wait to go back!
