2013 Boston Trip

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):

Boston 2013 World Series

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!

Chicken & Corn Chowder

In honor of the hubby and I taking our first (of hopefully many) trip to Boston, I decided my Thursday post would be a recipe for some delicious chowder.

First, the trip to Boston. The hubby is a HUGE Boston Red Sox fan, so for our 1st anniversary, I decided to buy some Red Sox v. Yankees tickets. This season marks the 100th anniversary of the amazing, historic ballpark they play in (Fenway), so why not catch a game? I also thought it would be a blast to tour the famous city of Boston.

Next, the chowder. Personally, I have never enjoyed clam chowder, but I know the hubs likes it (occasionally). With that said, I decided why not mix up the recipe a little and incorporate some things we both really like. I REALLY like corn and potatoes. I’m from Nebraska, what else do we except. Jordan really likes carrots and chicken. So when I decided to make my own chowder, these ingredients were my beginning. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
