Rainy Boston...

"Pahk the cahr in Hahvard yahd" That's the lingo in Boston! I love this accent, it's so American.

Our 6 day trip to Boston consisted of LOTS of rain...

Me at the Boston Harbor

Our vacation started in Providence. We enjoyed a fun dinner at Andino's on Atwell St. The gnocci was amazing!
Lovely Andino's

Me and the lovely Gnocci!
We capitalized on one of the only non-rainy days (overcast but not rainy) to take in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Truly one amazing experience witnessing a game in one of the oldest fields in the U.S. I scratched one more item off my "bucket list" when we went to this game.

The next few days were very wet and rainy but we managed to hit up Boston's notorious, North End. Some refer to it as little Italy. We dined in North End twice and both times were excellent!

Albeit blurry, this is the Paul Revere statue in North End. It's a retake of the one below it. I hate making other people take our pics, they're just not as good.

Us at the Paul Revere statue, take two but blurry.

Take one: Good Photo of us but where's the statue?

We also visited the uber tourist attraction--the Cheers bar. I was a little disappointed it didn't look more like the set inside but the outside shots for the show were really from the outside of this bar. The food was good and it was still a fun experience. Just make sure you go to the real one on Beacon Street, it's the original.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our trip :-)

Boston Bound

Today I'm taking hubs to the airport over my lunch hour. He's getting a head start on the vacation and staying with a high school friend. I'll be joining in the festivities come Wednesday.

Here's what we plan to do while we're there:

1. Visit Boston's North End for some good authentic Italian food (i.e. Cannoli, Ziti etc. :-) )

2. Catch a Red Sox game.

3. Get in some shopping at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.


Has anyone ever been before? If so can you please suggest any great spots? I'm pretty overwhelmed. Oh and what will I wear???

Add Another to the Pile

Okay Ladies, I've caved and bought these beautiful heels!! Hopefully they fit and are somewhat comfy. Have a great afternoon!

Dare to Buy Red?

Good morning ladies! It's been forever since I've posted something but I just haven't had any time lately. This weekend was swamped with family events with the in-laws. I've got a few cute things to post about but I just haven't had time to take any photos :-(.

Todays quick posts consists of these:

Here's the dilema, I wear a size 5 and it's super hard for me to find shoes in my size and these have come available and on sale. According to the site, there's only 4 left. What do you all think? Are they that cute? Would you buy them? Do you think they're versatile enough?
