And welcome to Parker the Prepster, where I share my love for all things glam, whimsical, and coastal. Thanks for stopping by!

Life Lately

In lieu of a Weekend Report, I'm sharing quite a few photos from my life lately. Between preparing for guests and enjoying their company, we've been pretty busy and having a blast!


IMG_5966I may have bought this patio set just for the chairs... All of the pieces are collapsible - perfect for storing and being used as extra seating until we have an outdoor space. They already came in handy Sunday evening!

IMG_5941Last week's floral bouquet!

IMG_5947A separated this one from the pack and placed it in a bud vase next to my bed.

IMG_5954Late night reading... Anthro's summer collection is perfection!

IMG_5957It's the little things in life: the flowers started blooming at my office.

IMG_5959More office flowers... Have you had enough flower pictures yet?!

FullSizeRender (17)On Thursday, I left work a tad early to pick Cameron's grandparents up from Logan. It was a gorgeous drive as I avoided expressway traffic on Quincy Shore Drive.

FullSizeRender (16)I also snapped a quick picture of this house for inspiration. A simple home, but I love the glass panes in the front, the porch on the side and the white picket fence.

IMG_5963After picking Nana and Grandaddy up at the airport, we proceeded to Sweet Carolines for dinner and a walk around Fenway Park.

IMG_0009While I worked from home on Friday, Cam and his grandparents took a tour of Fenway Park and went to Boston Burger for lunch. They sent me this gorgeous photo.

IMG_5967Followed by a Red Sox game that night. The Sox swept Oakland this past weekend!

IMG_0037On Saturday, we took a trolley tour of Boston. I loved that Old Town Trolley Tours allowed us to hop on and off!







IMG_5982On Sunday morning I woke up early and had breakfast on the beach. :)

IMG_5977Cinnamon Scones are one of my go-to breakfast treats.




IMG_5987These fellows greeted me when I returned home. How cute are the baby geese?!

IMG_5999We explored Marblehead that afternoon. I love showing our family members other beautiful areas in Massachusetts. We're taking Cam's family to Hingham this coming weekend.



IMG_5992Fresh flowers for a new week!

IMG_5995I adore the color of these roses...

FullSizeRender (20)On Monday I had to go back to the office, but Cam and his family explored Back Bay and Trinity Church.

IMG_6015On Monday Evening, I attended Karma Crew Yacht Charters Event, Bloggers on Board. Stay tuned for this full post, tons of pictures, and all the details tomorrow!

IMG_6043On Tuesday morning it was time for Nana and Grandaddy to head back to Alabama. We brought them to the airport for their early flight and ended up having a breakfast date at Mike's City Diner. I ordered the Eggs Benedict (of course!) and Cam had a side of pancakes and a side of bacon. Yum!

The rest of Cameron's family arrives on Thursday. I'm so excited to relive this weekend, as well as go to Wahlburgers, the Aquarium, the Museum of Science, and the Boston Duck Tours. It's so fun being a tourist in my own city.

What are your weekend plans?
