Weekend recap…

21 Jan

What a lovely weekend. We saw friends, had a few dates (aka we ate delicious food), finally played “Quelf” at a friend’s house, watched the game, and took advantage of free admission to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and enjoyed the Sargent exhibit. After making an enormous pancake/egg/bacon breakfast of course. As much as I crave expanses of time to be at home, sometimes a weekend of busyness can be completely restorative.

Our friends Shawna and Sterling has their first child last week so Brian, our friend Michelle, and I went to visit Saturday. She’s so sweet! And teeny! And peaceful! She slept in our arms for what seemed like 2 hours. We brought them some “Girl Scout Stew,” one of my favorite recipes from Brian’s mom, and I dropped off a bound book of “wishes for baby” I’d collected from friends and family at Shawna’s baby shower last fall.

We didn’t snap pics on our pizza date to Cambridge 1 (or during our game night at our friends’ Casey and Chucks), but anytime charcoal-grilled pizza is involved, particularly when it’s topped with spinach, artichoke hearts, chevre, and slow roasted tomatoes… pictures don’t do it justice. Likewise, no picture could have captured the magic of playing boardgames like Balderdash or Quelf so I posted a video on Facebook.

Aren’t long weekends the best? Happy Tuesday everyone. Have a great week!
