Weekend Photos in Review

by Cate on July 6, 2010

Sculpture Wishing Well

When my divorce proceedings were winding down, a few friends and I started planning a weekend away.  Not to celebrate the divorce, but rather to celebrate new beginnings.  The plan was hatched a few months ago, and this weekend, it finally became reality.  Three friends and I embarked on a road trip to Connecticut, hitting Old Groton, Uncasville and Mystic.  It was an awesome weekend, and we all came back recharged, refreshed, and with plans already to make this a new tradition every three months (we negotiated between quarterly and biannually ;)).

I think I took about 150 picture from this weekend, so you can imagine what a tough time I had culling it to a manageable amount so as not to chase my readers away.  Below are a few highlights.  Tomorrow, a restaurant review that was an impromptu stop and the best snack e.v.e.r.

Dunkin Donuts

Crazy Clouds

Clouds seriously fascinate me, and when they’re looking especially cool, the kids and I will jump in the car and take some pictures of the formations. When I saw these cotton puff clouds in Connecticut this weekend, we had to take a snap for Nick.

Perhaps BOTM stands for Blizzard of the Month?

Cate you look fabulous!!

What a great idea! Weekends with the girls are always fun. My friends and I took a road trip up to Boston a few weekends ago for a friend’s wedding and had a blast. I think it needs to be repeated.

Cupcake Vintage wine? Was it tasty?

Great pictures. I hope you didn’t have to take out a loan to buy those oysters.

When we were in New Orleans about a month ago, they wanted $12 a dozen for them then………

Jill – ahhh, yes, that must be it – good call!

SIL – thank you!

Joanne – love, love, love Boston. Haven’t been there in ages. Must get that back to rotation. I didn’t have the wine, but the others were big fans.

Ramona – haha, you ain’t kidding. Definitely not as cheap as they used to be!

Cate –

Just wanted to let you know that I stumbled onto your blog when you had posted the end of the year rainbow cake… it was a lifesaver! My daughter turned 3 yesterday and this cake was a winner! Thanks so much!! :-)

Looks like a lot of fun! I love, love, love Mystic. It’s on my list for trips this summer with the kids.

Ah, what a gorgeous and restful weekend! As always, your photos are wounderful. Glad you were able to get away for some relaxing times.

The July “BOTM” is my favorite of all time: strawberry golden Oreo! Oh boy. Had one on vacation in North Carolina recently and never wanted it to end!
