As I continue to embrace New England, which includes but is not limited to: Salmon shorts, boat shoes, Ray Bans, J Crew chambray and nautical stripes (all of which I love and own proudly), I visited Narragansett, Rhode Island last weekend (5/31 - 6/2). A bunch of friends and I got a house 10 minutes away (walking distance!) from the beach and I absolutely loved it.
This only made me wish I OWNED a house in one of these New England beach towns - that way I could go every weekend. (Though that would require a car, which I also don’t have, along with the millions of dollars that a home like this would cost…)
Anyways, here are some highlights from the trip:
BBQing on the deck (BBQ is behind me - I was helping with the grilling!)
Proof the grill was behind me! Chowing down on a burger. IDK why I love this picture, maybe because I don’t have too many flattering photos of me eating. This was posed, duh.
Girls bathing in the sun - in an effort to get golden tans, my result = lobster red shoulders - I vow to NEVER skimp on sunscreen again!!! (Don’t worry derms, I always put SS on my face, wear sunglasses and a hat - I don’t want wrinkles or worse, carcinogens!! (though I DO want golden stems!))
Too many cooks in the kitchen… people kept telling me I was in the way so I just tossed kale and then helped clean for this meal…
All that hard work in the kitchen paid off! FAMILY DINNER =) Delicious meal of bean salad, gnocci, orzo, asparagus, kale and more!
My favorite candid of Arvind and I (thanks Bri!). Maybe because we both actually look happy to be next to each other (or at least I do! Arvind is over it, or too cool for school, as usual).
Beautiful picture of the ocean, wind, Esha and the boys on Sunday. While the wind looks great here, it sucked while trying to sleep and get a tan. Imagine little grains of sand flying into your face and hair and landing in your eyelashes and ears. No “I’ll shower when I get home” - mandatory shower was necessary and still didn’t get all the sand out of my scalp (gross I know).
Like I said, the wind kept shifting everything, including our beach-sheet. Hence Nisha is rolling around in the sand. On a different note - aren’t my retro sunnies cute? I think so, though no one else was a fan…
And here’s the end of it - going home on the Metro North after driving to New Haven. Thank you Nilesh for convincing me to buy a preppy New England sweatshirt in douche-bag-prep-new england-salmon-pink. I actually absolutely love it and wear it every night in my apartment!
