I Bet You Didn’t Know These Random Tidbits

Hooray to the start of my weekend and a much need quick weekend away!  Total side note isn’t tidbits like the oddest word ever? Anyways told I am off to my homeland.  For those of you who think I am a southern Florida gal born and raised….don’t let the blonde hair and ability to line my eyes without even a mirror fool you.  I am a Boston gal.  I grew up right outside the city and when I turned 18 I decided I wanted to up and move from everything I knew and haul down the Eastern seaboard to attend the University of Florida.  That was the best decision ever.  Read this post if you want to know more.

I try to get back home at least once a year.  I am also going to see these two lovely ladies.

My beautiful brunette bestie Biana 
and….
Christina who honestly can make even holding a sign look fabulous

Christina who grew up two streets down from me.  Did you know that one?  See the blogging world it so small right?  Christina is actually the one who inspired me to start blogging.  I was stalking reading hers for years and then finally decided to take the plunge.  After many Facebook conversations I did it.  She has been my goto girl for all things blogging related.

What do I plan to do in Boston you ask?  Welllll……

Catch one of these

Eat a lot of these

and these.

Drink plenty of this



and perhaps this.

Then I’ll have to drop in for one of these.

Do lots of this because hello no tax on clothes.

All the while hanging with this guy who is the best travel partner ever.

True story when we first started dating after a few adults bevs I told Mark I was the best packer and traveler ever.  LIKE EVER! (apparently that was how I accenuated it).  I told him I can fit everything into a carryon suitcase even if we were traveling for a week.  At the time he didn’t believe me but still to this day haven’t checked a bag.  I am a very efficient packer ;-)  I have my Friday Favorites ready to roll tomorrow so definitely link up!  Hope you have a fabulous day!  xoxoxo

    How fun!!! I hope you have an amazing time! I love Harpoon! They had a tap of their grapefruit summer ale at our local bar and it was delightful! I miss no clothing tax, we didn’t have clothing tax in PA either.

    If you’re road trippin feel free to stop in Atlanta and get me! I want to hang in Boston with yall! I didn’t know there was no tax on clothes. That would be WAY to dangerous for me!

  13. July 31, 2014 / 12:38 PM

    Have so so so so much fun! I’ve been to Boston, once and it was a wonderful city!

  14. July 31, 2014 / 12:49 PM

    I just moved from Boston after living there for 15 years! You need to check out Island Creek Oyster, Boston Chops, Flour, and best part of Pure Barre is that it is on Newbury. So after class you can go shopping!!

  15. July 31, 2014 / 1:15 PM

    Oh I loved Boston!! We went in the winter though so I’m looking forward to another trip with nicer weather :) Have an awesome weekend!! Don’t you love when there is no tax on clothes?! It’s like that where I grew up too. Guess it’s the little things!

  16. July 31, 2014 / 1:19 PM

    ok so please elaborate on this no tax on clothes thing because…….. what?! am i living under a rock and didn’t know that was a thing? gah i need to travel more. kudos on packing everything in a carry on – sheesh! you go girl.

  17. July 31, 2014 / 1:24 PM

    SO jealous of the lobster roll!!! I went to school in Newport, RI and I really miss eating those and clam chowder!! That’s funny about the packing. My mom is like that, even when they go to Singapore to see my sister. Chris says that I’m a good packer too. He was trying to explain to his mom one time how much I packed for a week in London and she didn’t believe him. I just pack what I need that’s it. Anyways…Have a wonderful time at home and with Biana! :-)

  18. July 31, 2014 / 1:45 PM

    Have you ever done a post on packing? that’d be a nice tutorial :)
    WHAT? They have no tax on clothes?!?!?!? SHOP AWAY friend! Shop away!

  19. July 31, 2014 / 1:59 PM

    sooo much fun! I am so jealous, I have never been to Boston and REALLY want to go. So, make sure to post plenty of pics so that I may live vicariously through you.

  20. July 31, 2014 / 2:43 PM

    I’ve been to Boston once, last summer, and totally fell in love!! Wish we had more than one day to spend there as we were getting on a cruise, but we did do Sam Adams, went to Doyle’s, and Union Oyster House, can’t wait to go back some day! Have so much fun!!

  28. July 31, 2014 / 6:05 PM

    i am insanely impressed with your packing skills. as an overpacker, i need you to teach me your ways! but boston is somewhere i’ve always wanted to go. it sounds like it’ll be a great weekend :)

  31. July 31, 2014 / 6:45 PM

    My husband and I were planning a trip to Boston for the end of August but then our basement flooded and $1,000 no Fenway Park, no tax free shopping, no Modern Pastry shop..wahhh

  35. August 1, 2014 / 3:43 PM

    I can’t believe the one day I don’t check your blog is when you mention that you’ll be here in Boston! Any idea where you’ll be taking a pure barre class? I’d love to drop in! And too bad the Red Sox now have basically no players…
