This past Saturday was probably one of the best days we have had since moving to Bean Town. The weather was AMAZING. It was nearly 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky, Joey was off of work, and we were in the mood for a little adventure. So here is a little photo bomb of our great day :)
Our morning started off with a walk to Dunkie Ds and then we spotted a sign for one of my favorite summer activities- Estate Sale!
I nabbed a vintage wood sunburst mirror and a cute blue clay bowl. There was tons of furniture and other goodies but I had to restrain myself.
Then we cleaned ourselves up and hit the rode for a day trip to the seaside town of Rockport, MA. This is one perk of being temporary East coasters- as much as I love Chicago, there aren't any day trip destinations like we have here in the Northeast. Unless you love the views in rural Indiana...not so much.
The town was adorable and chalk full of little shops and restaurants- slightly touristy, but still worth the 45 minute drive for the view.
Then we headed just out of downtown to a lobster shack that Joey had heard about from one if his coworkers who summers up in Rockport. We experienced a little bit of heaven at the Lobster Pool- insane views and a platter of fried seafood the size of my head!
We needed to walk off the food coma so we headed just up the road to the Halibut State Park and took a seaside stroll.
I have no words for the next pic...
but he says he is taking offers for modeling contracts :)
After heading back to the city we spent the night relaxing on the couch catching up on Mad Men.
