Boy oh boy, my life for the past month or so has been absolute madness (and that’s an understatement!!), hence why I’ve been away for a little bit of time. Between school (like going to class), doing homework (and I mean A LOT of homework) and life (I’m a wife and a mom to 2 dogs), it has been a little on the crazy side. I am back, though, and have tons of things to post in the way of recipes! :) For this post though, I am going in a different direction.
In light of the recent news (and by recent I mean October 30):
I thought it would be fun to show off some pictures from the hubby and mine’s trip to the amazing city of Boston. Seriously, if you haven’t been to Boston, you HAVE to go!! It was absolutely unbelievable. The city just ooses history EVERYWHERE! Jordan and I will without a doubt be visiting Boston for the rest of our lives, especially once we have little ones to bring with us.
For our first anniversary, I bought Boston v. Yankees tickets, so we headed to Boston on September 12th (Thursday) at midnight, arrived there at about 6A and stayed until September 15th (Sunday). The game was Saturday, so we bummed around the town on Friday and Sunday, just being tourists and checking out everything, and Saturday we took a tour of Fenway Park, which was one of the highlights of the trip by far!
So without further ado, here was some of the pictures. I hope you enjoy!
First, we had to figure out the transportation system in Boston, which we soon learned was the best thing EVER!
Our first stop was Harvard. The campus was gorgeous and SO historic!
The Harvard Library…it basically looked like a federal building, including no access to the public, but it was definitely sweet looking!
Our next stop was the aquarium and the harbor (obviously pronounced in some funky Boston accent).
Saturday (Game Day!!):
Obviously, another flag will soon be added soon.
Check out this hottie I found! ;) It was SO great to be able to visit this gorgeous, historic stadium together for the first time and then watch a game (one of many throughout our lifetimes).
Saturday (Date Night):
One of the MANY gorgeous churches around Boston. Seriously, the architecture was out of this world, especially considering most of the buildings were built a LONG time ago! So crazy to think that our nation was basically founded in this gorgeous city.
We went on a Duck Tour (as suggested by a Bostonian friend of ours) and it was by far the best thing we did in Boston (rival to Fenway). No joke, if you are travelling to a city and they have Duck Tours, GO!! And go first. Our only regret was that we went the last day, instead of the first. We would have changed basically everything we did!
This is where I truly became a Boston fan. I know it sounds crazy, but seriously, Boston reminded me SO much of Nebraska. Talk about true fan-hood…they had a banner commemorating EVERY championship their hometown pro teams (Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins) have won. They are SO proud of their sports here and I LOVED it! In Nebraska, we shut down our cities for most Husker games, and I bet Boston would too, if they could.
