A long time coming...
Hey, SO sorry about how long it has been since I updated. My computer has been broken since I got back from Boston. I must say, I don't know how I survived pre-1990(ish). The Internet is definitely something I can live without...but life isn't as fun. So now to update you on some of the things that happened since my last post.
1.) I went to Boston, had an AMAZING time, turned 26 and was reminded of how blessed I am. Highlights included: -Waking up from a nap, to find myself standing over Carrie's bed with my fist in the air in a stabbing motion. I have never woken up in the midst of sleep walking before. This was weird and hilarious(I think Carrie would agree).
- Being offered pot for the first time in my life. It only took 26 years! Don't worry mom....I said no.
- Walking down a street in the North End to find it lined with the trucks for the team filming Ben Affleck's new movie. After realizing this we found a coffee shop on the corner and sat in the window overlooking the street while watching them film a scene.
- Seeing Ben Affleck dressed as a nun as he drove a minivan down the street less than 10 feet away from me.
- Hanging out with AMAZING friends in Boston
- Climbing all 294 stairs to the top of the Bunker Hill monument.
- Being told by our concierge that I didn't have a MN accent only to have that corrected when I said the word "one".
- Mike's pastries! I have never had a cannoli nor did I ever think I would want one. I was SO wrong.
- Sitting in the middle of one of the prettiest parks I have ever seen. I would highly recommend the Boston Commons area.
- Dunkin Donuts coffee
-The Sam Adams Brewery where I discovered "Cherry Wheat".
-My Steelers beat the Vikings...on my b-day!
There were a lot of other experiences but these were some of the top. Now I have been home for a few weeks and things are going pretty well. I will update more later though as this post has gotten rather long (as they usually do). Hope all is well in your world and if you are looking for a great city to visit, Boston would definately fit into that catagory for me. It is extremely walkable and SO much fun. There was SO much history and character to it.
