Fall Weekend in New England

Good morning, everyone!  I hope y'all had a great weekend.  Once again, when another blog post goes live, I'm in the air, heading back home to Charleston.  My long weekend in New England was wonderful (despite forgetting a jacket... yeah, I've turned into that Southerner).  The reason for our trip was actually Mike's job.   He had to work all weekend while I racked up 500+ miles on my rental car, zig-zagging back and forth across Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.  Here are a few of the highlights...
meeting my 8 week old nephew /// beautiful weather for a run /// eating the top tier of our wedding cake that was frozen at my father-in-law's house - we told the baker to surprise us, and she made it funfetti!!
mani with my girl in honey bun /// visiting the cider mill /// cider donuts!!!
coffee dates /// foliage on Halloween /// the cutest monkey ever

I was so happy to get to see so many of our favorite people this trip, too.  We had a reunion with all but one of Mike's groomsmen, fun at our first UConn game in two years (even in the freezing cold!), trips to visit friends for meals and coffee dates, and plenty of time with our parents!

Linking up with Ashley and Biana today!

Wow what a fun weekend for you! And love that you had no idea about your top tier, for me I was just excited to eat what I already loved about our cake, such a fun surprise.

Yay for getting to go to a UConn game even if it was freezing! I'm hoping the foliage holds out for my trip up there this weekend *fingers crossed*. So glad you guys had an amazing trip and got to see so many family and friends <3

That's a great fall polish color!

It sounds like you had a great trip - it's always nice when you can fit time with your people in!

Yayyy! You finally got that apple cider donut! It looks good too! So glad you had a great weekend back! PS. I couldn't figure out where I knew you from when Macy mentioned you a month ago. Weren't we on the Northeast Bloggers Network team together?

Megan @ Chicago Girl said...

Love this! I miss fall in the NE. I loved living in Newport, and that fall was just incredible. I definitely took in every moment that I could. I really want my husband and I to visit there and make it a tradition. Oh, White Horse Tavern, how we love thee:)
Those cider donuts look incredible. And who doesn't love little babies?!?

Caitlin Elizabeth said...
