ahh so the birthday weekend has come to an end and I am back to school today. Sniff Sniff.
But a HUGE thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes!!! It was all greatly appreciated!
So the all I have to say (not to sound too cheesey- sorry) is that I love my husband. hehe. He was so sweet and made the most perfect weekend for us. I have always loved Boston. It is one of my favorite cities, well my favorite by far actually. We got to spend the whole weekend there- just walking the streets, holding hands, taking in all the sites and people, eating great food, going to museums, staying at an awesome hotel, and spending some much need time alone together and away from everything else. It was absolutly perfect. I could not have asked for a better birthday. The weather was amazing and really I can’t say enough good things about it all.
It all started on friday by going out to eat at my favorite local restaurant by our house. It is called luau hale. I love it there because its dark and quite and they have lots of veg. options and they play hawaiian music and it makes me think of hawaii. Anyways, then we were off to six flags. Nothing says welcome to fall to us then putting on a hooded sweatshirt, tying the hood tight and sitting in the front cart of superman. I love six flags in the fall. Well that was what was suppose to happen but six flags was closed. ooops. oh well we continued on our way east and ended at kevs families house which was nice to see everyone on my bday.
The next day we woke up and we headed into Boston ( I am totally finding all this out along the way remember) we get down to newbury street and we spend the morning/early afternoon eating brunch and shopping!! I got to buy a brand new outfit!! We hung around newbury st. and Boston common until 2 when we walked down Bolyston to find out that we were staying in a Hotel! We stayed at the Charles Mark Hotel. It was this beautiful and modern hotel- it was awesome. The rest of the day was spent- wondering around to all our favorite spots- charles river, the north end, quincy market and then late night dinner at the Parish Cafe. Sunday we woke up and headed over to the ICA– to check out all the art and well the beautiful building it is in. We saw some really awesome videos, and some ok art but the building itself was well worth the money to get in. It is gorgeous! What a view from the 4th floor over the whole harbor. We spent the rest of the day hanging out, doing some more shopping and of course eating. hehe I love eating at good restaurants! I was so tired by the end of the day! We walked all over the entire city. I will live in boston one day!
Monday we slept in and then headed back out to western mass, we stopped at On the Boarder for some lunch and to my surprise had some guests waiting for me!! Mike and Erin were there to have a birthday lunch with us! It was so great to see them and spend time chatting and eating. I love them!
Last night we just got to relax at our own home, eating grilled cheese, tomato soup and watching lots of arrested development!
It will be a birthday I will never forget. Thank you Kev!!
