I Love Nashville

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

If you were plugged into my Instagram account or Snapchat (trendyonabudget) this past weekend, you already know I was down South in Nashville for my sis-in-law’s bachelorette party #LeahsNashBash. We ate, drank, and danced our way through Nashville. We even squeezed in a quick workout (you’ll see what I mean). Here are a few of the highlights from our weekend away!

Ocean City, NJ

Ocean City Boardwalk
Last Friday, I hopped on a plan and was Philly-bound (and eventually Jersey-bound) to meet up with Dan and our friends. At around 3PM, Dan texted me and told me that we were going to have a fantastic dinner. I immediately asked if we were going to Geno’s. When Dan answered “yes”, it was music to my ears. You see, I have always wanted a real Philly cheesesteak and my dream was becoming a reality in a mere few hours. That was just one of the many highlights of my weekend in Philly/Ocean City, NJ. Here are the rest of them…….

The Brimfield Experience

Finally, I made it to the Brimfield Antique Show! After years of enviously hearing about other people’s trips to the show and all the great pics on IG, I decided that it was time I put this event on my calendar. So, this past Saturday, my friend Steph G and I jumped into my Mini and headed to the antique show where we met up with my friend Steph W, who drove in from Brooklyn. We spent about 4.5 hours browsing the varied wares offered by hundreds of vendors; definitely something for everyone. I think I spent half of the time there asking: “what is this” or “what does that do?” Luckily the vendors didn’t seem too annoyed with me as I’m sure they get those same questions all day long. And the furniture! So many pieces I wanted to bring home but because Dan and I live in a 725 square foot condo and I drive a Mini, I could only dream about where they could go if we had more space. Anyhow, here are a few snaps from my day trip to the show. You bet I’ll be going back for more!

Weekend in the Berkshires

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Last weekend, my hometown crew and I decided to get away for the weekend (with two hubbies in tow). We picked the Berkshires, as it was perfectly halfway between Boston and New York. There was not much on the agenda, just a whole lot of hanging and catching up. Last Friday, the Boston crew piled into the car and off we went! Major props to Dan for picking the amazing place we called home for two nights. So here is my weekend, as summarized in a few snaps.

My Weekend in Brooklyn & NYC

NYC Plane View

Two weekends ago, Dan and I took a mini-trip to New York. On this particular trip, Dan and I parted ways. He to the UES and I to Brooklyn. But each night, we would gather with our friends for dinner. We kicked off the weekend on a high note with dinner at Birds & Bubbles. I couldn’t join in on the bucket of fried chicken fun (oh, Lent), but the sides were ah-mazing! So here goes a quick re-cap of key highlights from my weekend.
