A Quick Night in Providence, RI


As mentioned in Friday’s Happy Weekend post, we were celebrating Christa’s boyfriend Curtis’s 30th birthday with a big surprise on Friday night! That surprise was getting 8 other good friends together for a night at The Dean Hotel in Providence, RI. We dined at the Providence Flatbread (we’re making the rounds to get to as many New England Flatbread’s as possible), hung out in our penthouse suite (we rented the whole top floor, which had 4 connected rooms with 2 living rooms!) and spend the remainder of the evening down in the karaoke bar before venturing out for 1am french fries 🙂 It was perfect! Check out some pictures from our brief trip to Providence…

This is one of our friend Lauren’s favorite spots in Providence. We got breakfast sammies and so many treats between us all – including the miso & brown butter cookie, the meringue with dark chocolate chips, a cinnamon roll and a regular chocolate chip cookie.

We had a lovely lovely time and can’t wait to visit again. It was a super easy trip for Reg coming in from Boston on the commuter line, and it’s a quick 1.5 hours from Hartford. We also noticed that Providence is a foodie town and we plan on coming back soon to eat our way through 🙂

Have you been to Providence? What is your favorite place to go when you visit?


Shark Week

This post has nothing to do with shark week besides this awesome mural we stumbled upon while exploring Portsmouth, NH (and I think technically we took these photos during Shark Week)! But whatever, because this mural is amazing!

We had a busy weekend of New England day tripping, covering South Central New Hampshire, Coastal New Hampshire (Portsmouth) & Rockport Mass. These flowy shorts (Old Navy rings them up as a skort…) were perfect for our walk around town, and my simple tee and sandals keep the look easy and breezy. I am in love with my Target fedora which has a similar look to the beloved J. Crew Panama Hat.

We basically ate our way through Portsmouth, stopping at 3 places to eat while we were there, and on Friday I’ll be breaking down the delicious spots we stopped at!
