Quick Night in MA

As you read in my last post the Hubz and I took a quick trip to Massachusetts to have a night away and to do a little shopping at The Container Store and Ikea to outfit our new apartment.  Our goal is to have everything organized and beautiful ….but first we need to be able to move in.  On our way down to MA we shared a Twist drink that the company sent me to try. These beverages are certified organic and are basically flavored waters.  The first flavor we tried was West Indies Lime which was delicious! It tasted like key lime pie and was almost creamy just like a pie and brought me back to Key West…..aww I dream of the beach.

Once we arrived and checked into the hotel we were hungry and decided to head to The Pulse in Somerville for dinner which you can read all about here. Since we were not satisfied or full from our meal at The Pulse we walked down the street to Joshua Tree for a beer and sweet potato fries.

We woke up early the next morning and decided to head to Watertown to the Deluxe Town Diner for some yummy vegan pancakes.  However when we arrived we saw a new breakfast wrap filled with tofu, soy cheese, veggie sausage, avocado and black beans and we both decided to go with that and coffee.

The food was really good but the homefries were a bit cold and the coffee was some what watered down.  The service was slow and my bottomless cup of coffee was bottomed a number of times.  I loved the atmosphere though; it is an old diner and still seems to have the original fixtures which brings you back to a different time.  Overall the food was really good and their pancakes are delicious as well.

After breakfast we headed out to The Container Store where we picked up some great items to organize our new place and then we were off to Ikea where we found a great new dining room table. I can’t wait to show you all when we finally move into our new place and put it together. After hours of shopping we decided to have a quick and super inexpensive lunch at Ikea; we both got the organic pasta with marinara sauce for only $2 each! It wasn’t the best food but it did the job.

After Ikea we headed home which felt like forever so we stopped for iced coffee and finally made it to my grandma’s where we made dinner and got ready for our garage sale which was extremely successful.  The rest of the weekend has been spent relaxing.


  1. I had one of those twist waters the other day too and I was surprised by how good it was! I think it was lemon though, so I might need to try this lime one too 🙂
