Weekend Recap

Holy Crap…its the week before Christmas already! This weekend was such a fun one that I thought I’d share a few photos 🙂

Saturday we woke up to our first snow! It was Lola’s first time playing in it and can I just say how cute my pup is playing in the snow!



We also had our family friends annual yankee swap. As always it was such a fun night with!


Sunday we went to see Santa! we had tried 2 other times before this and the wait was so long, I guess its true third times a charm. Lola loved Santa – she kept giving him kisses.


This week is going to be a busy one. I have to finish my shopping ( I hoped to be done by now), bake goodies, my company holiday dinner, lasalette lights, and a few others.

How did you spend your weekend before Christmas?!

The Blogtember Challenge Day One: Introduce Yourself

Hey Friends! Somehow you were lucky enough to find my little blog and today I am taking part in my first ever Blogtember Challenge! By the end of September, you may be tired of seeing me post on the reg., but I am up to the challenge of posting every day.


My name is Rebecca Bourgeault, I am new to this whole blogging thing as at the moment I only do it occasionally to remember some important events in my life, along with sharing some things I love. I am twenty-six years old, and was born and raised in New England – the best place to get to experience all four seasons 😉 I have one sister, who at the age of six passed away from Cerebral Palsy.

I graduated from Johnson & Wales University with both my Bachelors & Master’s Degree and have been working in the Marketing field ever since, I am currently working towards getting my certifications to teach in Massachusetts as well. I met my boyfriend at a party back in 2012, which is nothing special but I can remember it like it was yesterday!

Bobby my other half is your typical outdoorsy guy. Who loves to fish, do yardwork, and play with our 6-month old border collie Lola. We bought our first home, a fixer upper in 2014 and have been working to make it ours ever since. It has definitely come a long way since 2014.


I started blogging after being a blog reader for years as an outlet for DIY, travel, and my life as I hope to influence other readers just as some amazing blogs have influenced me. I am thankful for you all for reading this little page and hopefully you come back soon!


Four Years <3

Bobby and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary yesterday. And although he doesn’t read my blog I couldn’t let such an important date go by without it being mentioned on here. I mean 4 years is a long time in my eyes.

We hadn’t had Lola for a few days so Bobby went and picked her up after work and we had a nice dinner at home as our little family. Funny story….Bobby had asked me earlier in the day what time I was getting out of work, so I of course told him my normal time (even though I was leaving early to get him part of his gift), and I thought nothing of it since he’s not big into surprises. Well turns out he was surprising me at work by bringing flowers! He’s so thoughtful that boy ❤ but he was so upset that I didn’t get to see them yesterday, I guess next time I won’t leave work early. I got them when I walked into my office this morning, and they are the most beautiful flowers he’s ever picked out!

We have had a crazy four years together, I feel like I have grown into an adult with him by my side, we support each other through everything good and bad. He’s my best friend and I cannot wait to one day be his wife. I feel so lucky to be in a relationship with him and to be able to wake up and do this thing called life with him every day.

Until Next Time,


Summer Bucket List

Is it just me or did May go by in a blink of an eye?!  Summer is un-offically here now that memorial day is over and I am beyond excited for what this summer has in store. We started the summer with our annual Memorial Day Cookout and it was a blast! Once Memorial Day has passed I am in full on Summer mode so wanted to share with you guys my bucket list for this summer!

  1. Try a few new restaurants near the beach – BLU on the Water and Nautika Restaurant & Bar
  2. Attend the Washington County Fair
  3. Red Sox Game @ Fenway
  4. Boston Pizza Tour
  5. Cape Trips
  6. Celebrate our anniversary somewhere special
  7. Mini Road Trip to Philly
  8. Six Flags New England (now that my roller coaster partner is back home)
  9. Go to Block Island with the family.
  10. Run a 5K
  11. Settle on a work-out routine. I’ve gained way to much weight and I need to cut it out.


It doesn’t seem like there’s much on my list – but a lot of our weekends are already booked with things (Cookouts, Bachelorette Parties, 5K’s, and Weddings). It’s crazy how all Winter we wish for Summer to be here and once it’s here I wish it would just slow down.

I’ll leave you guys with some photos of our Memorial Day Cookout!

Until Next Time,
