A Day in Boston

My best friend Kris lives up in Boston, but will be moving soon. I had never seen her new house, so this weekend I headed up to Boston! I also got to meet Mina, her sweet and giant german shepherd. Mina and I bonded and now are best buds! Kris had the whole weekend planned - it was perfect! We went wedding dress shopping - eeeekkkk!! So all my ideas for a wedding dress have changed ps - permanently if you get my drift ;) 
We went to tea, something we do together often! Makes us feel girlie and fancy!

 If you're ever in Boston to go 2 o'clock tea at Upstairs on the Square or for drinks at night!
 I promise you will LOVE it!!
 She took me to her favorite vintage shop, Lady Luxe! The gal that owns it is super great! She'll be opening an etsy shop soon! Stoked about that! 
 Plane trips are great for crocheting! 
I made strawberry gloves from Twinkie Chan's book! They are so darn cute!  
 Speaking of cute, Kris made me birthday cupcakes adorn with the kewpie head I sent her! bahahaha so cute and creepy! You may remember Kris' love of kewpies or lack of love! ;)

Once I was back in Tampa I got this hilarious photo text from Kris and her hubby! I love that they are getting into it with the kewpies!! Cracked me up! Thank you two for having me in Boston! Their home is amazing! I'll show you photos soon! Also because of them I started watching Shameless on Showtime - Brian and I watching 5 episodes (there's only 5 so far) last night and really liked them!  Watch it!
Hope your week is going well so far, I'm way under the weather, but I'll be fine soon! And I'll be back later with some craftiness and some beautiful home photos!
One more thing! Go check out all the amazing Valentines from the Valentine Swap!! You gals are amazing!! I swear, I'm always so impressed!
