Comments

Favorite! Scrumptious! Inspiring! Mouth-Watering! Fun!

Fun, well written, great pictures, yummy food, new restaurants

I liked it on facebook already...and...the 5 phrases are...
1. Eat, drink, and be merry.
2. Life is short, eat dessert first.
3. "A girl should be two things; classy and fabulous" -Coco Chanel
4. 'I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.' - Lady Gaga
5. "My weaknesses have always been food and men, in that order." -Dolly Parton

1. Diet destroying
2. Helpful to decide where to eat
3. Well-written
4. Bookmarked
5. Mollyesque

Happy Belated Birthday Pop.Bop.Shop!
1. Pictures. For me the pictures are everything. I know you shouldn't read a book (or restaurant) by it's cover but if a dish isn't presented well then who's going to want to go there to eat?
2. Go-to. When I am looking for a restaurant in a certain neighborhood of Boston I like scrolling through your restaurant list. It's such a help.
3. Indulgent. Yes, you should save money and be responsible but you only live once and you should indulge from time to time. In dessert. In travel. In shopping.
4. Fun. Whether it's a concert, a place for drinks, a restaurant to celebrate a milestone, you've got the city of Boston covered.
5. Honest. I know i can count on you to give you honest opinion - whether it be who's wearing what on the red carpet, or the service at a certain restaurant. So, thank you for being honest.
The End!

hmm, what amazing (and spot on!) comments so far.. here come some more! happy golden birthday, the sequel :)

1. inspiring: your blog inspires me to be more active in my city. if you can do all these fun things, and eat all these amazing places, and take all these great photos AND write about them for all of us to read, then simply staying active in my city is the very least I can do.
2. helpful: from gift ideas for family and friends, to presents to yourself, to what my next library pick should be, to where in nyc vanessa and I can meet for dinner, your blog helps to solve more of my problems than you know.
3. tone: one of the things i love most about your blog is the perfect-molly-tone that it's written in. when i read it, i secretly hear you reading it to me, like a bedtime story. and it's awesome.
4. creative: especially with all the shopping help! i don't know how you stumble upon all the places that you recommend, but they are all gems! i now have some new favorite pieces of jewelry because of pop.bop.shop. thank you for that!
5. tradition: i'm big on tradition, and i think it's safe to say that reading your blog is now a part of my routine. cheers to the next 1,371 posts!

OK, here goes!

1) P.B.S. Parfait! Bien! Superbe!
2) Surprising! Even in my own Paris backyard you surprised me with new restaurants to try next time I'm there.
3) Delicious! - Many restaurant recaps leave me starving and dying to try whatever I just read about.
4) Reliable - I rely on your blog - for restaurants, for fashion, but most importantly for water cooler talk. You keep me hip with my young coworkers.
5) Fashionable.

Nostalgic
Homesick
Happy (It makes me so happy reading, knowing how successful you've been getting to do something you really love)
Inspiring: I literally sat down and made veggie burgers with apples and cheddar for dinner.
One of the best parts of my day.
