a great day

When these photos were taken, I couldn’t have been happier!

(Sorry if this is TMI…) A few weeks prior I had discovered a suspicious lump in my breast, and was anxious to see my doctor to find out what it was.  Breast cancer runs in my family, so of course I was concerned.  When I went in for the appointment, I was expecting that I would be told that it was nothing.

Instead, the doctor ordered me an ultrasound and a mammogram, which were scheduled for a week later.

After what felt like the longest week ever I had the tests done, and was thrilled to find out that it was a benign cyst.  Yay!

FYI – the mammogram was quite painful, and I’m glad that I don’t have to go through that again until I’m 40! (that is, unless any other little bumps pop up)

Dave worked a half-day that day so he could accompany me to my appointment (and coincidentally also works at the same hospital where I got the tests done), so afterwards we decided to grab lunch then take a little walk around Faneuil Hall.

I have to be honest that I don’t love how this high-waisted skirt looks on my body.  I think it’s due to the fact that my torso is a little short as is, so wide waistband makes it look even shorter…but this skirt is SO comfy and was quite cheap so I’m not complaining 🙂

Hope you have a great weekend!

boston chili bowl

On Saturday, Dave and I went to the Great Boston Chili Bowl.  Local restaurants serve up portions of their best chili, accompanied by beverages from local breweries.  The event is currently in its third year, and all proceeds go to ALS research.

This was our second time attending, and it was awesome!  Once you get in the doors it’s all you can eat/drink, and of course that’s right up my alley 🙂

I love how the world is so bright with a fresh coat of snow.

We had a snow day on Friday, and then another one today – surprising since there wasn’t much accumulation.  I guess it was just enough to mess up the roads!  I’m hoping it’s our last snow day of the year, because I really don’t want to add anymore days to the calendar in June!

About two weeks ago, Dave and I grabbed some breakfast at one of our favorite places in Cambridge, Tatte.  If you ever go, you must get the muesli: rich and creamy whipped Greek yogurt topped with pumpkin seeds, oats, almonds, cashews, black sesame seeds, strawberries, apples, blackberries, and drizzled with honey….perfection!

Their bakery treats and shakshuka are also incredible!
