5 Things from the Weekend

When I began dating my boyfriend I did notice he bears an eery resemblance
to some guy named Tim Tebow. Little did I know others would think so too.
Prime Example: Saturday night a man took one look at him and shouted 
"Tebow!!!" As we made our descent down TD Garden's steps, we could hear him
excitedly telling those with him (not so soberly might I add) how they could be twins.
Upon closer inspection it became quite obvious...my boyfriend is a great deal cuter. 
Believe me and my Mom because she met him this weekend!

Fresh flowers to decorate the dinner table one night we had a vegetable and 
quinoa stir-fry. It prompted a "What's your favorite" flower discussion. 
Peonies and hydrangeas!

One of the perks of my status as a freelancer is the increasingly substantial number
of products and services I receive at absolutely no cost.

A recent favorite was a fantastic bottle of cucumber & rose petal infused gin by Hendrick's.
I cannot say enough about this delicious yet unique creation!
Pour it over ice, add tonic and garnish with cucumber for a remarkable drink.
I am incredibly focused on health, fitness and proper nutrition so from time to time
I experiment with varying natural recipes that provide wonderful benefits.
The above pictured is a detox drink that is incredibly easy to make. 
Comprised of: 1 sliced lemon, 1 sliced lime, heavily minced mint leaves and 
1/2 a sliced cucumber - this drink will help you drop water weight quickly
if you have an upcoming event you want to look your best for as I did this weekend. 
I grew up with dogs but love all animals big and small so adjusting to living
with my housemates cats was easy as they're so impossibly cute!
This week is going to be an incredibly productive one, so much to do
and so many exciting things to bring your way.

The Good: I got my hair and nails done, the meeting of parents/boyfriend went better than I could have ever imagined and I actually feel quite rested and motivated to take on the week!
 The Bad: I really don't have anything to complain about and negativity isn't my thing.
 The Ugly: You will all hate me for this but nothing as of yet!
