Weekend Day Trip to Marblehead

on

There really is no better way to describe how I felt about today than this. Brought to you by Shay Shull’s insta.17

Monday’s are dreadful but I felt like this Monday was more dreadful than ever. I was just not ready to go back to work. WHAT.SO.EVER. On a good note though-1833 more days till our vacation…..

Now to get to the real point of this post.

Not a whole lot happened this weekend per say. I know Andrew and I are notorious for having fun-filled exciting weekend adventures but we are in fact humans that also do nothing at the same time ha

 One of the more notable things that did happen was Andrew and I meeting my mom at H Mart which is one big giant Korean Market. Watching Andrew survive the Korean market was hysterical and very enjoyable to watch. Needless to say he was a trooper 😉

Sunday was the nicer day of the two, and by nice I’m talking like high 50’s (sarcasm, 50’s is still chilly)  But the sun was out and bright so what else did I want to do than to frolic. I had a bunch of ambiguous required requests for where I wanted to frolic to yet with no exact destination. Poor Andrew has to deal with my indecisiveness but I love him for that.

Naturally I wanted to find a cute town, not too far in distance, that has a nice walking downtown area, where we can be outside, more on the peaceful/suburb side, have a park-like scenery view, and of course had to be picture-esq.

So where did we end up…

MARBLEHEAD

I have to give props and kudos to Andrew for always coming up with somewhere special to go. Marblehead in a nutshell; a beautiful, wealthy, coastal New England town that has beautiful water front views. Oh boy and did they have gorgeous huge mansion-like beach houses that over looked the water. It’s a sight for sore eyes.

I saw that one of their popular sights was Chandler Hovey Park & Lighthouse so off we went…

When we saw the water we knew we were getting close13

And oh my heavens, Trip Advisor was not kidding. This was a beautiful place. It was definitely WAY colder over there (being by the water) but I’m sure in the dead of summer that this is a perfect place to check out. There are huge rocky cliffs that stretch out and overlook the water. And they have benches all around right on the edge of the cliffs, so just sitting there is incredibly serene and peaceful. The area is huge and wraps all the way around.

If you have the proper shoes you can even make it down below to touch the water10

And can’t forget the lighthouse. 11

And our candids. It was so bright out- to the point where we couldn’t even see if we were catching ourselves in the camera but this is what we made out with after some editing to actually see us. 1

These were better15

Don’t be fooled by my flip flops and cute summer-ish top. It was COLD as heck. This was my hurry up and snap a candid and lets get in the car picture.8

I can’t even explain how much love I have for him ❤16

We wanted to grab a bite in their downtown area which was historically cute. 6

5Butttt it was just too cold so back home we went.

I actually had bought us salmon that I wanted to make for us- it was my first time making it and I’m mind blown what took me so long to actually buy my own salmon to make because it was so darn easy and delicious. So delicious that we devoured it on the spot. But just so you can envision it, I seared it with a teriyaki sauce baked it with some onions and then I paired it with carrots and brown rice.

We ended the night with some playoff hockey and basketball and that was the weekend in the a nutshell.

xo, JJ

      lol ah okay, you made me feel better… 33 isn’t that bad…but just think about this…after my 33 days have passed and I’ve gone and came back from my vacation you will still be able to look forward to yours! I’m still through the roof excited for you you venture to DW. I certainly wasn’t expecting Marblehead to look like that, I didn’t even know that there were so many beautiful coastal areas like that fairly close to me! And I gotta give 100% picture props to Andrew for capturing that photo..sometimes he does a good job 😉 hahah love ya<3

    Omg it looks gorgeous over there! At least the sun was out and even though it’s much colder near the water, you sort of enjoy it a bit more. 🙂 we got some sunshine on Friday we weren’t home at all that day! Back to rain today 😦 lol

      You’re right, absolutely thankful that it was AT LEAST sunny. But much like you, we’re right back to the rain again too. I think it’s suppose to clear up a tad over this weekend *fingers crossed* xoxo

      Oh my gosh, same, the off the shoulder is everywhere and every single top or dress I pick out has it. Which I love but at the same time I need some variation in my closest. Although I can’t help myself and have bought a handful of them already haha

      A must see for sure!!!! I can’t believe it took me this long to get there. I didn’t realize how close these coastal location were to me now that I’m in/closer to the city. There’s a big beautiful beach nearby it too, Nahant Beach, have you heard of it?

    Oh my lord where do I even begin?!?! First (though really not the important part) isn’t it funny as bloggers/writers and ahem type A (me!🙋🏼) that weekends always have to be busy…So we can write about them? But then it is also really nice to have that quiet time. Anyway my ramblings for the day.
    Second eeeekkkk 33 (31 now?) days until vacay! So excited!
    Third omg I love Marblehead and your pictures are stunning! I loved seeing Andrew’s arm reflected in his sunglasses in a couple of the selfies. It made me laugh.
    Fourth because this has to be separate oh. Em. Gee. I am in love with your outfit! You looked stunning! And it might be cold AF(as frigid😝) but you didn’t look it! You looked like a model or mermaid on her rocks! Stunning!
    Also equally as important. My condolences. I really REALLY wanted the Bruins to make it because then they would have been playing against the Rangers and if there is nothing more I love then beaches and coffee it is a good ol’ fashioned New York/New England rivalry:)) 💗

      God I love your comments so so much!!! I’m gonna start from the bottom….NY/NE rivalries are seriously the best, they’re some of the most intense games! But ugh, you Yankee’s also beat us Sox last night 😦 I lovee your mermaid comment lmao it actually does resemble a ‘mermaid-ish’ photo haha awesome comparison. And Andrew’s arm is the best selfie stick we have. Which is funny because we do hav a selfie stick butttt, we’re weirdly not too fond of it. And we’re soooo excited for our vacation. Half the things we want to do on our vacation is literally based off of your itinerary of things you did in SF. So thank you for that haha ❤ ❤ …. I cannot waittt!!!! xo
