Weekend Recap: Hair, Apple Picking, Lazy Day.

Good morning friends!

I’m feeling awfully groggy this morning which is a quick and uncanny reminder that today is Monday. *sigh*ย It’s even more dreadful that half the people I know have today off in honor of Columbus Day. Although what’s the one and only silver lining in all of this? No traffic ๐Ÿ˜‰

On Friday

I finally got my hair done, which was a relief. These roots were taking over. BUT I’m sad to say no bangs. My hair dresser/colorist/stylist whose opinion I take to heart refused to do it. She had me dying laughing with her reaction when I brought it up. Half of me is completely fine with it but my other half was excited for some sort of change. I’m not sure that I 100% understand the work that needs to be put into bangs. I struggle waking up at 7:27AM so if I had to wake up any earlier to tame bangs I don’t think I’d be the happiest person. Still partially considering it though, but TBD…

Also, you’ll see hair photos down below if you keep on reading.

On Saturday

Andrew and I were suppose to go up to NH for a Cuban family gathering. NH typically isn’t that big of a trek for us but it was further than we normally have to go, and lately Andrew’s SUV has been having some issues that need to be looked at so we decided to pass.

And instead, we killed two birds with one stone (not literally, its just a phrase) by going apple and pumpkin picking! YES, I finally convinced Andrew to go.

I’ve been wanting to visit this specific apple orchard/farm for quite some time, mostly because people rave about their cider donuts and uh if you know me, wherever there’s donuts you can find me there too.

Honey Pot Hill Orchards

Right off the bat, this place did not disappoint. What I specifically loved about this orchard is that there were so many things to do. Normally you go to an apple orchard, pick some apples, and that’s it- but this place had a ton of activities.

Just to name a few things:

A giant apple orchard (of course)1



A pre-picked pumpkin picking area12



A small animal farm (I didn’t photograph the animals but here was us against the small pony farm)ย 3

2 Hedge Mazesย (this is one the one we did)5




And most importantly, THE CIDER DONUTS!ย 2

Oh my lanta were these amazing! They make them there right in front of you except you’re not allowed to photograph it. I went in thinking I was only going to get 2 of them but they only had these bags of 6 which I thought, oh man that’s too many. NOPE finished all 6 of them by Sunday AM. There was actually only 1 left by Sunday morning. I’m really contemplating going back for another bag.

Food and more

There was also a food and ice cream stand. And a store with fresh apple cider, which was so yum! Caramel apples, fudge, and all sorts of apple farm goodies. And they also had a hayride that we didn’t make it on but every tractor was filled, so I’m sure it was worthwhile!

And then on our way out we frolicked some more through the orchard. Not gonna lie by this time of the day, I was sweating and on the verge of heat exhaustion. I actually might’ve had heat exhaustion; it was so muggy and hot out. I just barely made it onto the ladder but you know, obviously had to snag some photos.ย 10


And if you were wondering about the hair, all the photos above showcase it.

On Sunday

Two words: Lazy Bones.

But hey it was raining so completely justified. The highlight of the day was getting my nails and toes done. Lately, and surprisingly, I’ve been on a nude tone kick so I went with this color- not my nails in the photo. But I love the color.

Be There In A Proseccoย 1

So lets see, the peak of my weekend?

The Cider Donuts, 10000%


What was the peak of your weekend?

    Girl I feel you! I also had to work which stunk! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And Mother Nature is seriously nursing a bad break-up at the moment, which is not helping the Monday moodiness!
    Ahhh I absolutely flipping LOVE your hair! SO pretty! Your hair dresser did an excellent job! While you would look fabulous with bangs it IS a ton of work! I am kind of regretting going back to mine again after having gone eight months growing them out. (Again Mother Nature NOT helping with all the humidity!)
    Oh my gosh I am so happy you got to go Apple AND pumpkin picking! Your pictures are stunning! Especially the one of you on the ladder. Girl you do not look like you were exhausted you are rocking it!
    I am so glad you had an amazing weekend and I hope you have an even better week! โค

  3. Such lovely photos, Jenny. They get me into the mood of things. Btw recently I got myself a new hairdo, and the hairdresser refused to give me fringes — as much as I whined about it internally I gave in. You can always bribe her next time with an apple pie ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Your hair is gorgeous! Where do you go to get it done (now that I know you live in Boston)? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need to go apple picking ASAP.

    I also love your outfit!! Where are those pants from? โค

      I’m so sad to say but I now live in the outer-skirts of Boston like near Chestnut Hill. The only pro is having parking spots and not having to dodge cars parked on the street lol Still miss it wholeheartedly though!!!
      Anyway, depending where you are in the city it might not be too far?! I get my hair done in a salon over in Watertown called Salon Sabrina. It took me forever to actually find a good salon AND colorist. I’ve tried a handful of places throughout the city and would pay an arm and a leg for mediocre-bad results. This place rocks. If you can easily get there I highly recommend it!!
      And the pants are from none other than Marshall’s! ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  9. I’m loving the hair, it looks lighter / more ashy and it’s so pretty! Yes! Honey pot hill Orchards sounds amazing, the most fun place with such fun things to do! I wish I got to see the animals, I bet they were so adorable ๐Ÿ˜ I love ponies too!! And horses! Ahh I just love them lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ The maze sounds like such a fun extra touch to the day! I take it you managed to find your way out ๐Ÿ˜‹ Loving the ladder photos too! Sounds like you had the best weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Your hair looks gorgeous! In my opinion, I think you would rock bangs! I got bangs about two years ago and it was a bad decision for me because I never do anything with my hair and it’s super curly, haha. I think I styled them twice! The rest of the time I just pinned them back. Your hair has such a nice texture and it looks good straight, curled, styled, etc., so I think you would do great with bangs.

    Whew, sorry I had so much to say about bangs, haha. I loove the color you got your nails and toes done! So cute for fall ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay!!!!!!! You finally went to the pumpkin patch! Was it everything you hoped for? LOL I bet those donuts were delicious! I tried pumpkin donuts last year for the first time and I was in LOVE! My palate was pleased ๐Ÿ™‚
    And your hair looks gorgeous of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would have loved to see you with bangs but they really are a lot of work, so I’m kind of glad you didn’t do it. I beat myself up every time I do them LOL.
    And I’m so jealous that there’s a hedge maze over there! We have corn mazes which are…eh.. Fun, but still eh.. If I ever find a hedge maze I will be delighted! It would totally make me feel like Harry Potter! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Have an amazing weekend! xx


  13. Apple Cider donuts sound delicious and apple picking sounds like a lot of fun. I’m looking over here for a good pumpkin patch and to buy some homemade goodies. The peak of my weekend was spending Sunday with my friends.

    AWWW. Iโ€™m sad you didnโ€™t get the bangs, but at least you can always choose to do it! Youโ€™re truly gorgeous no matter what, but I agree that changes are FUN! Cider donuts literally sound like the most delicious thing I have ever heard of in my life. NEEED. I wonder if I could find anything like that around here. These pics are so cute of you two frolicking in the apple and pumpkin orchard! XO
