This week on Marlborough 4.04


^ signs of spring on Marlborough this week

A few highlights of the week...
  • We got a new bedroom window! Yes it's just a window, but it's huge for us because 1. our room is so much warmer and 2. we'll actually be able to open it now.
  • I had my first grilled meal of the season at my friend Erin's this past weekend and even though it was pouring rain and probably not warm enough to be grilling, it was so good. There really is nothing like that charcoaly taste of grilled food, and I've missed it this winter. 
  • The Voice continues to amaze me. This battle and this battle were my favorites from this week.
  • We finished the second season of House of Cards and all I can say is WOW. Any suggestions of a new season to fill our binge-watching void are welcome! :)
  • Josh and I went to see "Noah" in IMAX last weekend and while I don't have rave reviews about it, the previews did get me really excited for this.
  • The hummus platter at Parish Cafe is life-changing.
  • We had our quarterly company meeting last night that included yet another hilarious video made by our founders. I'll be sure to share it once it's online! If you haven't already, check out the Inception and Dark Knight parodies they've made for past meetings.
  • A huge highlight of the week was when josh told me his coworkers cat had kittens (the fluffy kind with the cute squished faces) and he was bringing them home for me to play with and I was so excited. And then I wasn't anymore because it wasn't real. April Fools! Not funny.

And a few fun things from around the web...
  • Ever wonder what happened to Genevieve Gorder from HGTV? Well apparently she's been renovating her NYC home. I can't wait to see how it comes together on her new show that airs soon on HGTV!
  • Kim Kardashian attacked by an elephant while taking a selfie. Perfect.
  • This is my kinda party.
  • Coolest dad ever.
  • I wish this happened on one of my flights.
  • These funny April Fool's jokes from brands will make you laugh, and this feel-good prank played on a good Samaritan will make you cry.  
  • Oh Joy is killing it lately! She just released a kids line for Land of Nod and it's the cutest.
  • These are the smells of my childhood, and they literally come right back to me.
  • Love finding new, healthy recipes? Follow these 11 people on Instagram.
  • This chocolate peanut butter shake and this grilled asparagus spring salad sound like a perfect Sunday lunch combo to me.
  • Two Voice judges (Adam and CeeLo) in one movie? Amazing. I'm pumped for Rom-Com season.
  • I love this spread featuring Karlie Kloss in this month's issue of Vogue.
  • After letting fans vote on every wedding detail for the last couple of month's, The Knot is giving two Boston Marathon survivors their dream wedding today and streaming it live on the Knot.com. Such an amazing love story!

Happy Friday!
