bundle boondoggle

in the past i've given horseface a hard time for 'bundling' my birthday and anniversary gifts.  he apparently does not care because he continues to do it.  this year, the birthday-anni-bundled-gift-trip was off to a rocky start when we watched the grey lady disembark from the hy-line terminal . . . without us.  but it was the beginning of our trip not going according to plan, yet going even better than we probably could have planned.  

starting with hopping on the "slow" boat, hy-line style, aka the great point.  has anyone ever been on this?  i'm hesitant to let this secret out, as it's quite a glorious way to get to nantucket.  horseface bought us "first class" tickets {for same cost as the high speed} and even tho the boat ride was twice as long, it was full of couches and table seating, and best of all, like 5 other pax.  it was basically a booze cruise all to ourselves.  no racing for a seat or waiting in line for anything.  recommend.

a few days before we left, CBC had let where we were staying slip {ahem, told me after i asked 750 times}.  the new 76 main.  place looked legit and i was pumped.

adorbs, right?  
one teeny problemo.  it's not open yet.  BUT gracious hoteliers kate & scott called CBC on friday to let them know they had made arrangements on our behalf over at the white elephant residences {at the 76 main rates}.  and they were terribly sorry for the inconvenience.  and by inconvenience they meant THIS:

we thoroughly enjoying basking in the lap of luxury at the white elephant and furthermore can not wait to show our patronage at 76 main when they are ready for us!  huge respect and gratitude for what they did.  thank you!

other highlights of the trip . . . cru . . . for 3 meals {yikes}

can you blame us? 

AND we also had the pleasure of dining at the new restaurant, the proprietors, from the same peeps who brought us American seasons, a fave.

It was only their second night open for business and everything was so yummy.  love-love the atmosphere and cannot wait to go back, and i'm anticipating it will get even better. {horseface and hands were a teeny bit jammed up about the slow service since there was a certain game on but they were great sports . . . no pun intended}

ahhh. . . what else?  we squeezed a lot in and this is getting boring.
a few rando shots below but my piece of shiz phone kept dying.

ventuno back bar, boarding house, space,  rando champers deliveries from new friends, ducklings, straight wharf, sunshine, stubby's, milly & grace, fireflys, juice guys {doug's special smoothie recipe}, brewery, "lunch" from dupree & co., supermoon, island creek oyster fest {doh! may or may not have blacked out had a great time at this event}, qt with brothers meagher . . . all of these activities may explain why i feel like i'm 108 today.  womp.  oh well, always worth it. . . .

and of course the highlight of the trip was time spent with the ash, there's even a teeny bit more of her to love these days.

i haven't loved a bump this much since '08.

oh and big thanks to the bundler for everything.
