Hello friends! This post isn’t going to be full of exciting brunch posts or nights out in Boston. Instead my weekend was full of relaxing, crafting, and just enjoying some down time. It was kind of perfect and wonderful in every way possible.
I spent the majority of the Saturday at the A.C. Moore looking for crafty things for a baby shower I’m co-hosting next weekend. I don’t know how it happened but I killed off about 1.5 hours in that store just wandering around.

It is amazing what a hot glue gun and some fabric can become!
That night while I was crafting I also used this recipe to make a lovely dish of Linguine with White Wine Clam Sauce. The only change I made to this recipe was to use less pasta. More clams per square inch baby.
I enjoyed my pasta with a big ol’ glass of vino.
During the Vino Voyage last year I discovered Kim Crawford’s Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is amazing! It is fresh, crisp and really citrusy. It is the perfect wine for anything involving seafood.
On Sunday The Scientist and I toured around a few local markets and snuggled up with the Mutt for the afternoon.
It was a bit gloomy outside and it was the perfect day for a little mexican food. Healthified mini tacos with pintos n’ cheese! More details coming soon.
Oh and I paired it with a margarita. Yep. Sunday afternoon with a margarita. That’s how I roll.
Fear not friends. I didn’t ruin my perfectly healthy meal by downing it with a glass of calories. This weekend I found this amazing display at my grocery store.
Seriously. Crystal Light Margarita, Peach Bellini, and Pomtini! I only picked up the Margarita version and I’m happy to report that while it isn’t exactly like a margarita, it certainly hit the spot and was really enjoyable. It smells just the way a margarita should and is just missing the tequila.
I closed up with the weekend with some menu making and caught Episode 1 of Awake. EEK. Such a good show. Did anyone else watch this?!
Hope you guys had a great weekend!
