i'm back!

well, my long weekend trip to boston was wonderful. didn't get a whole lot of sleep, but who needs sleep in beantown?! it was so great see rae-rae and have some much needed girly time.. we mostly did shopping all weekend, even though we didn't have tons of spending $$. we did go to ikea, as well as urban outfitters, and a big fancy mall that had a sephora, anthropologie, etc etc. i made it home with a few trinkets, and enjoyed the train rides to and from. definitely would do it all again, any time! ;) here are a few snapshots from the road, and some of my finds.















the two kitties missed me a lot while i was gone, and i got lots of snuggles my first night back.. also, as you can see, rockie helped me put our new ikea duvet on our bed.. the throw pillow i made my first night back, from a tea towel purchased at anthropologie; it is stuffed with a down feather pillow form that i made out of an old bed pillow that had long since lost its shape (have you ever cut open a down pillow to cut it in half? oyyyyyy! hahah. what a treat!)... the greek pasteries didn't make it all the way home, i ate most of them on the train on my way back!
i also have a bunch of photos i took at ikea, of the things we want to buy for our new apartment! t-minus 6 weeks and counting until we can move. i'll try to get the ikea pics up soon!

looks like a fun trip! I'm jealous! I lived in boston for 4 years when I was in college, and I haven't been back to visit since february 2004! I miss it!!
