Happy Summer! I know it just started, but it goes by way too fast, not that I’m complaining. (I’m the most basic white girl when it comes to Fall – I live for it.) But I do love Summer, and so far, I’ve been having a blast.
My boss gave me Red Sox tickets, so Saul & I went to Fenway to watch the Red Sox play Toronto, which happened to fall on the first day of Summer. My boss did tell me he had great seats, but I underestimated how great these seats actually were. I felt like I was on the field! I could see the players up close. I’m not a huge baseball fan, but the ambience was great and it’s always fun to head into Boston.
The next day was a Saturday, and Saul and I had booked a mini weekend getaway to Vermont. I hadn’t been to Vermont since I was a teenager, so I don’t even count that trip. My friend’s parents had a timeshare and we were bored and went to Smuggler’s Notch off season. We never left the resort, unless you count going to Big Lots and the grocery store. We weren’t of age, so we couldn’t really go anywhere.
We went to Stowe and stayed at The Golden Eagle Resort. Vermont is so pretty. Everything is so green and lush. We had a lot of fun trying new restaurants and breweries. We loved Cold Hollow Cider Mill – amazing cider. We also tried Idletyme Brewing Company, but we weren’t impressed. We had dinner there, but they were super disorganized and it wasn’t a pleasant experience.
We went to The Ben & Jerry Factory and took a tour – that was probably my favorite part of the trip. It was so fun! They had a “Flavor Graveyard” of all of the old ice creams that they’ve gotten rid of, it was really cute.
We also ended up on a scenic route, which was scary AF but fun. I wish I didn’t delete the videos I took while we were driving on it. There were boulders everywhere and you couldn’t really see around the bend. There were also no middle lines in the road.
All in all it was a fun trip, and I would definitely go back to Vermont.
Me and Saul decided last minute we should have a cookout for the fourth of July, so we had some friends come over. I got to see my nieces, and my nephew, which I’m always super excited about. And my cousin Melissa came, which was shocking. (LMAO I love you Mel!!!!) We got this blow up pool, that has a filter, so we had it all set up and it was such a hit. (With the kids, and the adults.) It’s nothing crazy, but the fourth of July was so hot so it was nice to be able to cool off. I was literally melting. I wish I had taken more pictures, but we were sweating, so besides pictures of the babies, pictures were a hard no. I had a lot of fun, but probably had too many White Claws.
On Saturday I went up to Maine with my BFF Jena. Her mom, Patty, has a house there, and we stayed with her for the weekend. I absolutely love going to Maine. I always have a blast with Patty and Jena, and Maine overall is just gorgeous. I feel so calm and relaxed when I’m there. We chilled poolside all day Saturday, and then Saturday night we went to Inn On The Blues. They had a live band playing (The Nate Bash Band) and they were so good! I love live music, it’s so entertaining. Again, I drank too many White Claws (actually, this time, I think I was drinking Truly), and we went to bed super late, so Sunday we had a lazy day in Maine and just relaxed. I had a great weekend.
Now it’s Monday, and unfortunately I’m back at work. I’m looking forward to more fun Summer Days and Nights though – in August, I’m going to Maine for a week with Saul, his brother, sister-in-law, and my niece, Ellie. I cannot wait. We rented a house and I know that will be fun. Jena’s birthday is in August, so that will be a fun celebration. And I’m planning on hopefully having some more cookouts and get-togethers. Maybe another weekend away? Who knows. I also have some adult things to do – a phone call with our wedding planner at the end of July, and I need to get my Save The Dates out! It feels like our wedding is so far away, but I know it will be here before I know it.
How’s everyone’s Summer so far, and what’re your plans? What’re you looking forward to? Leave me a comment!
