Wow 2nd day of September?!

Hope everyone’s got fabulous Labor Day weekend plans. Here are my favorites from the week 🙂

Boston Red Sox’s at Fenway Park

Since I was little I’ve always dreamed about seeing a game at Fenway Park in Boston. I’ve always loved the history of this storied baseball stadium. I loved movies like Fever Pitch and The Town that use this beloved sports venue as a supporting character. I watched along with the whole country on TV in 2004 when the Red Sox’s broke the curse. So on Tuesday night I finally made it to 4 Yawkey way with my parents and my grandparents! I enjoyed my Dunkin at Fenway, Sam Adams seasonal and a Wally Bowl full of chocolate ice cream. I sang along to Sweet Caroline at the bottom of the 8th and potentially watched Big Papi during his final season in MLB. All in all it was a great night and first visit 🙂

Before we headed to the game, we stopped at Wahlburgers in Brookline to grab dinner. My parents had been there for the grand opening last fall and raved about the burgers. I’ve caught their reality show once or twice, but I know it’s huge favorite for some people. I was really excited to try the food because I love a good burger and fries and I was really happy with the “Our Burger” or Paul’s favorite. It was delicious and the side of sweet potato tater tots were even better, I feel like no one does tater tots anymore! If you’re in Boston do yourself a favor and find one of their locations to stop into, it was worth the hype!


Happier with Gretchen Rubin Podcast


If you are looking for a great new podcast to listen too, check out Happier with Gretchen Rubin. Gretchen is the author of the Happiness Project and Better Than Before, books that explore the ideas and literature on happiness. I enjoyed reading her books and I love to put the podcast on when I’m working out to remind myself of her tips to mine every bit happiness out of every day 🙂

Bite Lipstick

My go to lipstick brand for a while now has been Bite Lipstick. I love how vibrant their colors are and how long they last. I get asked all the time what lipstick I’m wearing and I always rave about this brand that you can find at most beauty stores! I have picked up a lot of free samples from Sephora and even the smaller versions of Bite last me a good 6 months.

    Over from the link up. Yay for your trip to Fenway and Wahlburgers! I’m a gazillion miles south of there but my husband has Fenway on his bucket list and I have Wahlburgers on mine. Love that lipstick – very pretty! I have only heard good things about Bite. I hope your weekend is super fabulous. xo
