Ideal Autumn

Catching you up with some photos of what's been happening lately. I had a super-productive first weekend of autumn...Wish I was on a roll and could say that this weekend has been equally as productive! I have a busy Sunday Fun Day ahead of me, so I'm keeping this post short.

SnACK AttACK: BoHo and American Seasons

I'm no big fan of change. Maybe that's why it's so surprising that I tried not one, but two new restaurants when I was on Nantucket last weekend. If you've been following this blog for any length of time, you'll know that I think Nantucket has some world-class restaurants including my former favorite, Topper's at the Wauwinet, as well as The Galley, Lola 41, Straight Wharf and The Pearl, all detailed here. So given just a couple of nights, I was torn about where to go. Too many choices!

ACK: Stripes on the Horizon

I happened to be flipping through N magazine on Nantucket and spotted an ad for Peter Beaton. I've had a St. James pullover on my wish list for awhile, but the striped shirt in the ad caught my eye anyway. So the first stop on my (first of many) shopping excursion (s) was Peter Beaton's.

ACKommodations: The Chapman House

Greetings from Nantucket! When I made my travel plans, I knew that I wasn't going to stay at the White Elephant this time, so I did some research on the best B&Bs on the island. My first couple of choices were booked solid, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I finally stumbled upon and booked a room at the Chapman House, described as "retro chic with a hip flair."

I'm going bACK!

Happy Friday, Friends! The Sailor headed to Wisconsin for the Redskins- Packers game this morning, and I decided to treat myself to a long weekend in one of my favorite places. Tomorrow, I'm off to make the annual trip to Nantucket (Read about past adventures here: ACK: White Elephant, ACK: Loot, ACK: Gluttony).

Choose Joy

For the past few months, I've been involved with Coaches v. Cancer and their signature Teeing Off on Cancer fundraiser, which was held last week. I met some people with big hearts who were really dedicated to the cause, and we pulled off what I thought was a successful event. We raised a bit of money for a great cause and had a lot of fun playing a gorgeous golf course at Saratoga National Golf Club (Well, I didn't play, but I DID get to drive the golf cart-- even better!)
