Friday Favs_1.17.14

The weekend is upon us and I'm so excited! Tonight, we are FINALLY going to see American Hustle. All of my favorite stars in one movie... it's going to be great! This weekend, I'm taking my niece around Boston to go to the Aquarium and get dinner. I'm so excited... she's 7 years old now... the time really does fly!

I hope you are all getting ready for a GREAT weekend! Here are my fav things of the week:

Last night, I met up with Janet and Rebecca at the new Ward 8 that opened up in the old Nebo location in the North End. The vibe was really cool and the food was great. The drinks, though... amazing! This one here isn't on the online menu, but, I believe it is called the Espinosa. It tasted like strawberries and cream - you cannot go wrong.

This review from Refinery on fitness bands provides the best info I've read so far on how they work and which one is best for you! (I think I need one... stat)

I can't remember the last time I had a pop tart (maybe when my mom bought them during our last Martha's Vineyard trip - 7 years ago!) I don't buy them because they are loaded with junk... but these... THESE are homemade. Need to try this recipe that I found on Pinterest via

And finally... in a world full of "BUSY"... Let's remember to.....

Enjoy the weekend... every moment. xo
