There is no better time than Christmas time, and no better place to experience it than in Maine. Not only that but it is even better when you have your best girls with you, the people who know you the best, make you laugh, and always make every moment better.
So I’ll keep it short since it is picture heavy. Anything you want more info on let me know.
My wonderful friend Lynn drove up to Maine, with a stop at When Pigs Fly in Kittery Maine for lunch. We shared a pizza, some roasted brussel sprouts in a ginger and sesame sauce, and chorizo in a cream sauce. Amazing.
It was amazing to see Seamus again, i sure did miss that face.
How was your weekend?
Do you have holiday traditions?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.

awwww, looks like a fab weekend!!! being with family/friends during the holiday season is the best.
It is so much fun and it really just starts off the season off right! So many laughs and so much shopping.
Looks like you had a great weekend! Always good to catch up with old friends. Also, all of your food pictures look amazing and cheesecake for dinner is completely acceptable 😉
It was such an amazing trip. We ate so well, totally in need of a detox now.
All the food you had this weekend looked incredible! I love that we have so many cute towns and places that have great traditions so close!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
It is such a cute town and so much good food. I need to workout twice today to make up all the calories.
Looks like you had a great weekend and I love the dog decor cafe!! All of the food looks so delicious and I love having dessert first because I’m always too full for dessert.
It was such a good time. We totally left room for dessert more than once.

This post made me so hungry…that’s a lot of good food!
It was amazing and my pants are tight now!
What a fab weekend!! All the food looks so good. Nothing like a girls weekend especially around the holidays.
It was so nice to catch up with the girls I really needed it. We always have a blast together too.
That parade looks too fun! What a special moment for the seeason!
It was a highlight for sure, so many great floats and so creative.

What a fun, festive weekend! All the lights are so pretty and the food looks amazing, especially that pizza!
It was so festive and we got so much Xmas shopping done. I love that Maine is so close and easy to pop up there for a weekend.
Brianne Bracco says
Love a fun Christmas spirited weekend! We have our Christmas parade next weekend too that we have a float built for.
It is such a good tradition. That is so much fun, looking forward to seeing your float.
Looks like you had a fun relaxing weekend! All the food looks so delicious.
It was so much fun. I am still full from all the food.
Life According to Steph says
Sign me up for all the desserts!
They were all so good. I need a serious detox now.
All of your food looks amazing!!! Sounds like you had a fabulous girls trip!!! I think I need a trip up north where it is pretty and cooler to get in the Christmas spirit!
The food was so good though I am paying for it. It is such a fun place to be to help get you in the spirit.
The When Pigs Fly logo is so cute! Glad you had a successful and fun girl’s weekend! Those are always so good!
Their food was amazing. It was so good to spend time with them and get most of my shopping done.
Well, we’ve never been to Maine, but I would agree that New England is the best place to be for the holidays. We’ve got pine trees and snow and tons of places for outdoor iceskating and skiing
You should try to make it out to Maine, they really do Christmas right. All of the fun activities in New England are just so much fun. We certainly get the best of all the seasons.

I really want to see New England in the winter. It looks so pretty. And I’m glad you got to spend time with friends and family!
It really is pretty here in the Winter. It was surprising how nice the weather was though. It was so nice to just spend good quality time with them.
Your food pictures have made me hungry.
That parade looks like fun! I don’t think they do one around here.
I am still full! The parade is such a fun tradition and they were so creative and really brings the community out to support them.
Sounds like an amazing weekend with the girls. Girl time is always good for the soul. The food from When Pigs Fly sound amazing!
It was so good to spend time with them and recharge the tanks. Their food was so good.
I WANNA GO TO A DOGGY THEMED RESTAURANT!!!!!
When Pigs Fly looks like it has bomb ass food!
Three dog is so cute and I love the idea behind it. When Pigs Fly had amazing food and the store next door lets you sample all their breads. So good!
Linda sheridan says
Lovely weekend for you!! I would always opt for dessert over dinner!
Glad you got to spend time with your people.
Have a nice week!
Love. Steph’s. Momma.
I almost never have dessert so it was a nice treat. It was so good to spend time with them, it always fill my heart up.
All the food! It all looks so amazing! Looks like a really fun weekend.
The food was so good, okay maybe a little too good. 😉
What a great weekend! I love holiday events, and when you are able to incorporate a weekend away, it makes it all the better. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Have a good week!
It was such a great weekend and much needed.
Kate at Green Fashionista says
Looks like a fabulous girls weekend, and all that food looks delish! Awesome tradition <3
It is my most favorite time mostly because I get to spend it with them. So much fun and lots of laughs.
love it! looks like I will have to head up to Maine next christmas, if only for that when pigs fly place! yum! the desserts look amazing. and you’re right, that big – who needs dinner?!
It is such a fun town and it really gets you in the spirit. Love it there. Oh we totally shared a pizza but the dessert sent us over the edge into needing to unbutton our pants.
This looks too fun for words! Love all the eating and enjoying friends/family =]
It was so much fun I want to go back. We ate so much food, I am still stuffed!
Elle Sees says
look at y’all cuties!! you can tell you are all having a good time. that is the best–spending time with loved ones. i’ve never seen maine at christmas time–i can only imagine how pretty.
We always laugh so much until we cry. Those are the kind of weekend that makes the best memories. Maine is perfect year round but especially beautiful at Christmas time. I totally recommend going at least once.
That food looks delicious! Looks so festive 🙂 You also look cozy. My co-worker from Maine and I was asking if it was at least cold there and she said no haha it’s been in the 60s here which is ruining the holiday spirit
The food was so good, I totally had to detox. It was so much warmer than it normally is, but it was kinda nice.
