Monday Morning Gossip & Weekending

Linking up with Leann & Kimberlee for Monday Morning Gossip.
Linking up with B Loved Boston Champagne and Surburbs for Weekending.





Today, I'm guest posting over at Crazy Little World of Mine
I'm blogging about my favorite California designer, Brittany Saberhagen.
Please check it out.


I'm also talking about my weekend! 
JenniSixx and I headed down to the Cape for a little R&R.    

Chatham Lighthouse



Chatham Cookie
M&M Cookie














 We spent the day in Chatham, Massachusetts. 
 It's a seaside town that has some great little shops as well as some great little restaurants.  
We had coffee at Chatham Cookie which also makes some very yummie cookies. After some coffee, we walked around Main Street.  We spent time going in and out of all the cute shops. I lost count of how many shopping bags we collected. Let's just say, some damage to our wallets was done.   
After shopping, we had lunch at the Squire. It's a bar/restaurant that many locals hang out at. 
The food is good and the prices are pretty reasonable.  After lunch, we went and hung by the water for a bit. Then we headed up historic Route 6A. It's a beautiful road filled with lots of great antique shops and gorgeous homes. 

I highly reccomend a visit to Chatham, MA. You will not be disappointed.
However, it does get insanely crowded in the summer.
It is also very crowded on Thanksgiving Weekend. In fact, this time it wasn't that crowded at all. 
When we were there on Black Friday, it was so busy you could hardly walk down the street.  
Who knew Chatham was the place to be on Black Friday. 
The best time to go is in the off season or the beginning of June/ beginning of September. 
It's still beautiful weather, the shops are opened but the crowds aren't as heavy.


Are you a fan of Cape Cod??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

    1. The traffic is terrible, that's why we went early in the season. It just gets too crazy. That must have been a beautiful wedding. Time does fly.

    1. I was so disappointed that the lighthouse wasn't open to the public when we were there. It's only open for a few hours during the week. Boo.
