Fun fact- Boston was on my top 5 list of cities to visit for YEARS.
Probably even top 3. For some reason, this place intrigued me.
It just seemed like a cool place. And people have neat accents there (always a plus). It was clearly THE place I needed to visit.
Not that it’s any surprise, but I was right.
It was awesome.
Then again, part of that may have been the crowd I was with. Stephanie , Kacy , Jess , and Kelly are just like an extension of my personality.
We’re a force of crazy. With a little sass on the side.
It’s probably quite scary. We apologize.
Because many of you have already been to Boston, or maybe even live there, let’s keep this brief when it comes to discussing my weekend…
1. Steph hosted us and found a few good spots to keep us entertained. One being Top of the Hub - a restaurant on the top of one of the tallest buildings in Boston.
It was quite fancy and required our best behavior. Which was like a mean challenge for 5 girls with no filters who haven’t seen each other in 5 months.
Well. It was a classy affair until Kelly took to making sure Kacy didn’t miss a bite of her lobster deliciousness in a bowl. Apparently it was tasty. We almost had to restrain her from licking the bowl.
2. One guilty pleasure of mine in new cities is finding a few super cheesy tourist things to do. This came in the form of visiting Government Center. Which was full of street performers and stands for tourists to waste their money at.
We totally ate it up. The people of Boston were most likely rolling their eyes at us.
3. The weekend was unseasonably warm. Which was disastrous for what I had packed, but perfect for a Saturday of walking around in the park.
It looked like we strolled straight into a romantic comedy. Personally, I was waiting for Ben Affleck to save the day when I misstepped off of a curb or something. He’d say something witty and we’d fall in love at first sight.
Matt Damon would have been fine, too. I’m not picky.
4. Not all inflatable mattresses automatically come with a pump to air them up. We found this out around 12:30 on Friday night.
Kelly and I remedied the situation by asking for extra blankets for padding on the hardwood floor. And a super stiff night cap of the vodka variety. There were a few worrisome cracks when standing up, but we learned we’re still young chickens who can rock out the floor if need be. Success.
5. Toys in bars are fun. This could come in the form of a jukebox where Kacy pumped way too much money into it for some solid jams. Or it could be in the form of actually toys in the corner of the bar.
It’s like they knew I was coming.
6. The only clam chowder I had in Boston, with the exception of a few spoonfuls of Kacy’s one night, was at the airport.
Does that count? Probably not. But don’t tell me otherwise.
Don’t also warn me the book I’m reading in the above pic is supposed to be done for book club tonight. I know. And I work somewhat well under pressure. So we’ve got this.
7. As for what happens when I get home from another long weekend away?
It could go without saying.
It was a wonderful weekend with good friends. Not sure what exactly I was expecting out of the city- but it’s a beautiful town. Smaller than I assumed it would be. But that’s also possibly because I was pretty ignorant of such demographic information.
Now that my travels are over for at least another week and a half or so, it’s time to get back into a normal routine. Whatever that may be. I can’t really remember…
