Thanksgiving in Boston Recap


Happy Thursday! It's hard to believe Thanksgiving was only a week ago. It somehow feels like it's been forever since I've had a break from school, but I know it's just because this time of the year gets so crazy with finals coming up. I mentioned my Thanksgiving a little bit, but I wanted to share a full recap of what my weekend looked like in Boston because it was so much fun.


I flew out to Boston on Wednesday night, and I ended up arriving a little later than expected due to a flight change with the weather issues. By the time I arrived, I went straight to bed and woke up early on Thursday to do a Turkey Trot 5K with my aunt and uncle! It was literally 10 degrees outside, so I actually ended up doing it really fast because I wanted to get it over with, haha. It was fun despite the cold, and a great way to get a little exercise before our feast later.


I wore this top, a similar black suede skirt, and my over the knee boots. I also wore a pair of my mom's vintage earrings, but I love this pair and this pair (!!) that are similar!


Our Thanksgiving spread was delicious. I've never been really into the actually turkey on Thanksgiving, but this year it was so good. With the homemade cranberry sauce on top, that might've been my favorite dish! Besides pie, of course ;)


On Friday my aunt and I went to the CycleBar in Wellesley (where they live-- it's just outside of Boston) for an early morning post-Thanksgiving burn. It was such a great workout and really helped me feel better about all of the pie the night before.


After CycleBar my aunt, cousin, and I ventured into Boston for lunch with another one of my aunts. We had lunch at the coziest, prettiest french restaurant, Bistro du Midi -- it was fabulous. I had the cauliflower soup and split a Croque Monsieur with my cousin and both were delicious. Oh, and truffle fries... so good. Not to mention, the restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays and we had a view of the Public Garden from our second-floor table. Loved it.



After lunch we walked around the Public Garden for a little bit before checking into our hotel and then doing some shopping on Newbury Street. We stayed at the Revere Hotel, which was really close proximity to the area. Our room was so cute and the lobby was very aesthetically pleasing. I hope I have an opportunity to go back another time during the warmer months, because they have a really cool rooftop that would be so much fun to hang out on.

My flight was early Saturday morning so we hung out and watched a movie after shopping, and it was the best way to relax and end off our busy weekend. Overall it was such a fun, yet fast, trip, and I am so grateful I got to spend Thanksgiving with my family in Boston!

How was your holiday?!
