Throwback to last weekend in Nantucket! Have you ever been?

It’s almost indescribable. The island is lusciously deep green with grey colonial style houses strung along with coastline. At first, it appeared to be a little too picture perfect. Is this a dream?

The answer was no. I did in fact retreat to a small coastal island to spend a spectacular warm weekend with Lorissa’s Kitchen at the Boston Pops event with some of my blogging girlfriends Lee, Liz and Davida.

If you haven’t had the chance to try Lorissa’s Kitchen products yet, you must! They’re SO DANG GOOD, a healthy high-protein snack that’s more tender than traditional jerky. In fact, they’re actually referred to as premium protein snacks. The beef varieties are made from 100% grass fed beef. Current favorite flavors = Ginger Teriyaki and the Korean BBQ.

While our time was limited on the island, Davida, Lee, Liz and I made the most of it starting out in a quaint home with apple trees, an outdoor shower and sunflowers blooming in the backyard. Cute doesn’t even begin to describe the situation.

Friday night we enjoyed dinner and plenty of wine at The White Elephant hotel. In my opinion, the best part of the meal was this incredible goat blackberry cheesecake. And this is coming from someone who doesn’t even really enjoy cheesecake all that much.

Saturday morning we all worked out in the blazing heat before departing to brunch. Yes, I workout when I’m traveling, because it’s become part of my lifestyle and I like to hold myself accountable — especially when I’m eating more than I normally would aka all the sweet treats I can find.

You probably already know this, but anytime I travel to a new destination I seek out the best dessert. This time it was an ice cream shop that was ironically called The Juice Bar. The scent of waffle cones drifted through the air and I knew I needed to experience creamy, dreamy ice cream immediately.

My two flavors of choice: cherry chocolate chunk and almond joy. The almond joy was SO ridiculously addicting, with huge chunks of roasted almonds and fresh coconut flakes. Thinking a recreation might be necessary and if you find yourself in Nantucket, I highly recommend it.

After exploring the city & grabbing cocktails, we got ready and headed to Boston Pops for a cocktail happy hour, followed by dinner & a concert with The Boston Pops Orchestra and Kenny Loggins.

I couldn’t believe how many people were on the island and all in one place. We’re taking over 10,000 people on the beach waving glow sticks in pastel colored pants. It was amazing.

Here are some more highlights from the event. Thanks for being here with me and checking out my adventures.
