Mama and Papa's Weekend Away

Dave and I headed to Maine for the wedding of one of his friends this past Saturday.  It has been quite sometime since we had an (overnight) adventure just the two of us, and thanks to our dearest friends Sarah and Ben (who adopted the girls for the weekend) we were able to have some much overdue time to ourselves! 
Since there was a good chunk of time between the wedding and the reception so we headed to Stonewall Kitchen to see what their flagship store was like.
York, Maine 3:40pm

Breathtaking scenes we saw upon arriving at (and leaving)the reception. 

York, Maine 7:45pm

The fabulous billboard we saw on our way to our hotel room in Portsmouth New Hampshire.  Oh gosh, we love these two!  I so wish that this campaign started when Dave and I were on our journey through the Land of Infertility.  If it was we so would have dressed up as these two for Halloween!  Click here to watch one of the commercials.  Needless to say, I made him go around the rotary a good few times till we got the right picture!
Congress Street, Portsmouth New Hampshire, 8:00am
Friendly Toast.  A very yummy, yummy breakfast place (we'll have to check out the one in Cambridge soon). 
This is one of those fabulous places where when they say "mini pancakes" on the menu they don't really mean small! 
And the breakfast burrito is huge too.
Heading home after a wonderful adventure!

We had such an incredible time! What a treat to be able to go away (even if it was just for 24 hours) and just be.  Chatting, laughing, and spending time reconnecting. It was perfect!  We are so lucky to such a wonderful "family of friends" and specifically such dear friends in Sarah and Ben.  We love knowing that when we cannot be there that we have a wonderful circle of friends who will step in and take care of our girls as if they were their own!  It truly makes the journey that much sweeter!


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time! I'm jealous that you had breakfast at the Friendly Toast. It's one of my favourite places in the whole world & I haven't been in forever... xoxo

  2. It was such a treat to get to be away just the two of us! The Friendly Toast was so yummy! It was so hard to choose what to get as everything sounded so good! Looking forward to going back again soon! Which one have you been to? Love your blog! Thanks for stopping by ours and we hope you'll be back soon!
