Weekend Sunshine_8.12.13

Weekends like the one we just had here in Boston, to me, are pure perfection.  80 degree (dry!) days, clear skies, and cool nights. I think we "New Englanders" take extra advantage of perfect days like these because they are so rare. I hope you all had a chance to go outside and have some fun!

Friday night, I had a little deck party with all my bff's. Today is Chris' bday so Rachael picked up some (amazing) cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop.  A nice little surprise for the birthday boy!

I served all the favorites... cheese board, prosciutto/mozzarella/basil/tomato, avocado chickpea dip, deviled eggs, hard Italian salami, grilled buffalo chicken & fresh mojitos! Kim made yummy stuffed mushrooms. Andres and Rebecca brought Espolon Tequila... which took us right back to Punta Cana (served chilled with salt & tequila). Yes, the 'fancy' way of simply saying that we took shots... (That tequila is amazing)

Saturday, I spent the afternoon at Duxbury beach after a great boxing class. Sunday, we took the boat to Duxbury and anchored off the 3rd crossover. The water was SO WARM. And for locals, yes, it really was warm (Duxbury is usually pretty cold). We swam to the beach, laid out, & relaxed for the rest of the day.

Here's this week's motivation. Remember, it takes hard work, mistakes, ups, downs, and a lot of focus to accomplish the big things that life throws at you. Keep your eye on the prize and work hard my friends!
