Moms Day Out...

Last weekend I got a chance to spend quality time with some of my favorite mamas sans-kids for a fun "Moms Day Out" experience! We spent the morning/early afternoon together - enjoying an amazing Core Cycle class at Exhale Boston Battery Wharf and then headed over for a fun brunch at State Street Provisions! It was the perfect Boston day that was MUCH needed for all of us!

Exhale has a GORGEOUS space and spa. I had been to the location in the Back Bay, but really loved the fact that this was part of Battery Wharf Hotel oh, and the valet parking (which you can get validated at the gym). We took the new Core Cycle class and it was amazing! I haven't done a spin class in months, so it felt great to sweat it out for 45 heart-pumping minutes. Our instructor Erin was super motivating and once she shut the lights off and cranked up the music the energy was electric! We were all dripping sweat, but it felt awesome.

We also got SO many compliments on our matching shirts from Jam Threads (which you can see above!) It was a cute little touch that just made our day even that much more fun! Also, not only are they super cute but the material is so soft; all of the ladies said the same thing! Cute + comfy, for the win!

After class, we were able to take advantage of the beautiful deluxe full-service spa that Exhale has to offer! They provide you with plush bath robes and comfortable slides, and even if you're not booked for a service you're able to use their sauna, detoxifying hammam, the "quiet spa lounge," and rain showers (complete with heated towel racks!) I think the calming zen lounge was super appealing to us mama's, since we all have toddlers :) We enjoyed sipping tea, lemon-infused water and just looking at magazines. A few of the girls LOVED the sauna, which I sadly had to skip because...pregnant! I did take the longest, most luxurious shower I've had in awhile, using the shampoo/conditioner and body wash provided! There are lots of other amenities too such as body butter, hair spray, hair dryers and even mini straighteners to use if needed! We spent over an hour just relaxing and it was incredible. We will definitely be back to enjoy another class/spa experience soon!

After an intense workout, we were so ready for our yummy brunch at State Street Provisions! The restaurant has a chill vibe and also a large fully-stocked bar! They made me the yummiest "mocktail" and the other girls loved their hand-crafted drinks. The brunch menu is super diverse and it took us quite awhile to decide what we wanted because EVERYTHING sounded so good! I highly recommend the burger served on an english muffin; it was absolutely delicious! We were also surprised with a little dessert from the chef - a cappuccino mousse with orange and almond biscotti. It was the perfect ending to our meal...I think we nearly licked the plate clean :) Not only is the food incredible, but the location is perfect! It's right around the corner from the New England Aquarium, across the street from Faneuil Hall, and walking distance to TD Garden!

We had such a refreshing day hanging out in our city and enjoying some "kid-free" mommy time! What are some things that make you feel refreshed?!
