There really is no better way to describe how I felt about today than this. Brought to you by Shay Shull’s insta.
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-33 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…
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 close
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 water
And can’t forget the lighthouse.
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.
These were better
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.
I can’t even explain how much love I have for him ❤
We wanted to grab a bite in their downtown area which was historically cute.
Butttt 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.
