Oh boy, happy Monday, friends! What a good weekend it was, don’t you think? I was lucky enough to fly away to Boston for two days to visit two people I love dearly with one of my best girls. And it was good, so good. And it wasn’t so good just because Jacqui and Jake are incredible hosts, or because we ate and drank all the best things in the town, or because Boston is stunning and chock full of history. No, all those things made it wonderful but the best part was just getting to spend time with my people. I was telling my mom a while ago that I have trouble making friends because I don’t often meet people who I think are my people. I’m talkative and blunt and weirdly passionate about most things, I’m a strange bird (in the mostly good way, I think) but I can tell when I meet people if they just don’t…..get it. Anywho, this isn’t making much sense. Just know that Jacqui and Jake and Leah are some of my people, and some of my favorite people at that.
And with that, our trip in pictures. Brace yourself, I couldn’t pick my favorites.
I woke up earlier than I would have liked to on Friday, but it totally paid off to arrive to the airport with this as my view. Flying is my favorite. Like really, my favorite. And I haven’t been able to fly in over a year so this was a very exciting trip.
Hey Boston! I’m comin’ at ya! And I’m in a cute dress! #airportbathroomselfie
HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE FLYING?!
We arrived in Boston right before lunch time and went straight into eating and drinking, as you do. First, there was a beautiful sushi lunch overlooking the water (I don’t have pictures from this, shockingly). And yeah, you read that right, I ate sushi. No big deal. JUST KIDDING HUGE DEAL. Then we headed to Harpoon Brewery which will now be referred to as my favorite place ever. Leah and I shared this flight (spoiler alert, we loved them all) and there were also giant pretzels that we ate too quickly to photograph.
Aside from the great beer and pretzels, I loved this place because the natural light was unreal, thus, my new favorite picture. I may or may not have cropped Jake and James out to make it the background on my phone. #sorrynotsorry boys.
The rest of Friday was spent wandering Boston, having drinks at the oldest bar in the country. IN THE COUNTRY, GUYS. It is older than our country. I cannot wrap my head around that, but if you know me at all you know I was geeking out hardcore.
At this point things took a turn with Leah developing the migraine to end all migraines, but she was a trooper and we all enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner before heading home for the night.
It was supposed to rain on Saturday but! We were lucky enough to get out early enough to see literally all of Boston before the rain started.
Here is a shot from what will go down as the worst brunch of all brunches. The food was terrible, the service was worse, it was bad. We literally ran people off that were attempting to come in after us. But, it was a good story!
Next Jacqui and Jake took us down Newbury Street, where Leah picked out new frames! I WISH I NEEDED GLASSES.
We took a bathroom break in the most beautiful Restoration Hardware ever, ever. Walked some more, went to the graveyard where Sam Adams is buried. Ben Franklin’s parents are also there, try and wrap your head around how old that place is. Boston was so spectacular, I just loved every bit of it.
After going home to rest and freshen up we headed out to dinner and went to a great Asian place with huge bowls of rum, Scorpion Bowls they call them.
Then out to the bars around Fenway we went, and it was so much fun.
It was so good to be back with this girl, it had been too long since we last squeezed each other.
And I flew home early Sunday, the flight wasn’t quite as wonderful as my flight there due to having had a bit too much fun the night before, but it was worth it.
All in all, a great weekend. Let’s hope the memories of it help me push through my first 50 hour work week with both babies in the last two months. It’s gonna be a doozy.
