Weekend Recap

Happy Tuesday Friends!

This weekend was a great start to my October! Now that I am at my new job, I am fortunate to start my weekend on Fridays at 3:30pm – the earliest i’ve ever gotten out of work. I was so excited for the weekend to start, because I knew fun things were happening!

Friday: I went home to play a bit with Lola girl since Bobby is outta town for the weekend. I had plans to go out to eat for dinner with my mom & dad at our favorite Fish & Chips place Ye Olde English – so getting some of Lola’s energy out before I had to leave again was necessary. My gram, cousin and aunt ended up joining us for dinner! I love family time and to make things better Nichole came back to spend the night with me so I wasn’t lonely!

Saturday: THE DAY I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO SINCE I GOT ENGAGED. Some of the most important ladies in my life came with me to find my wedding dress! It was something that I was so excited to do, but also dreading because I have not lost as much weight as I wanted to before the appointment.

As soon as we got to the store I immediately felt special. They had a sign out front that had my name on it, welcoming me to my appointment. How freaking cute is that?!? I had heard such great things about Ve’Lace Bridal and I am so glad I chose to go there first.

Once I got into the store I checked in, and advised what style I liked and showed them a few pictures of what I liked. Well it’s true what they say that you may not actually like the things you see in the magazines. I had such a strong opinion on what I wanted to try on – but thankfully I had the most amazing bridal associate helping me. Big Shoutout to Shadia for helping me feel the most beautiful I have EVER felt.

 

Shadia was unbelievable in really opening my eyes to different style dresses that I thought I didn’t want. I told her what I liked but was also open to try on anything since this was my first time ever trying on bridal gowns! Little did I know I’d fall completely in love with I think the 10th dress I tried on. I had loved it so much – but there were still some things that I wanted to change, so I tried on other dresses but I couldn’t stop comparing everyone to that one. I spoke with Shadia in the dressing room about my thoughts and she assured me that the few changes I wanted could easily be made. Thats when I stepped back out in that dress and let the ladies know it was the one.

Once she matched the veil to my dress, the tears could not stop! I knew I had found my dream dress and I could not be happier!! I’m so excited to bring my girls back to shop for their bridesmaids dresses there and hope they have the same great experience that I did (I have no doubt that they will!)

After a wonderful appointment we headed to lunch. It was so nice to talk about all things wedding related, further kids names, and just have a fun girls morning and afternoon.

Sunday: It was such a crappy day – legit overcast and rain ALL day. But I went sunflower picking with my mom and finished getting our engagement picture outfits complete. We have them a week from Sunday! I am so excited!

Monday: Happy Columbus Day! We spent the day doing one of our bucket list items. Visiting Clyde’s Cider Mill. We had heard great things about their hard cider & wine so we ventured to Mystic CT with the family. It was a fun day. After hanging around for a bit at the cider mill watching their process of making the cider we headed to Mystic Pizza.

 

 

I had the absolute best weekend and hope you did too! Hopefully this week flies by since its only a 4 day work week.

Weekend Shenanigans

How was your weekend dears?! Mine was incredibly busy but full of so much fun! It literally felt like I didn’t stop at all, which i am 100% okay with!

Now onto our weekend!

Friday, we had a low key date night with dinner at one of our favorite local spots.

Saturday morning my friend Brittany came up and we headed to pick Sunflowers! It was the most perfect day because it wasn’t humid as all get out like it has been.

Saturday night was Bobby’s surprise 30th! I don’t know how I pulled it off but somehow I did with the help of some awesome people.

Bobby had the most amazing time and even with a few hiccups it ended up being a great time and that’s all that matters. Good food, good friends and good times!

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday Friends!

We started off our monday with Lola girl getting out of the house and having to chase her 😐 thankfully the day got better from there! Sharing with you the fun stuff that happened this weekend.

Friday we had the day off to head into Boston for THE BEST CONCERT EVER. If you we’re born in the 90’s, like country music, and don’t live under a rock you would have enjoyed this show…Florida Georgia Line, Backstreet Boys, Nelly & Chris Lane. I have been to a lot of concerts and I can easily say it was the best I have been too.

Saturday morning we slept in since we didn’t get home until 1am and my aunt had Lola so we actually could sleep! I had to babysit too so it was nice to get some rest before handling the two munchkins.

Sunday we had a relaxing day too and my parents came over for dinner and to help Bobby put up the railings on our back deck. After dinner we went to our favorite ice cream spot the Ice Cream Machine with both parents and Lola girl. She even got to try their homemade puppy ice cream! And no surprise she loved it.

It was a complete low key weekend, but it was what we needed after the running around we’ve been doing lately. I hope you all had a great weekend!

Our Engagement Party

HAPPY TUESDAY! This weekend was by far one of the best weekends this year yet! So of course I had to share with you guys. Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I enjoyed mine!

Saturday morning started out with my favorite donuts ever Allies Donuts! If you’re ever in the RI area you gotta check them out.  Then mid morning there were TORRENTIAL downpours and guys I was so nervous that the weather wouldn’t clear by the time of the party, but thankfully it did!

I wanted to share some photos of our engagement party with you all. My parents hosted the most amazing party at my aunts house with the help of my aunt & uncle and Bobby’s parents. We were surrounded by family, friends, and some of our soon-to-be wedding party (we haven’t asked yet!). The party was amazing and kicked off the next year and a half of wedding festivities just how I imagined.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all of the family that pulled this party off. We couldn’t be any luckier to have so much love given to us and we CANNOT wait to celebrate with everyone again at the wedding!

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 🙂

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?!

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.
