Weekend Recap: 24 Hours In Boston

Okay, brace yourselves people. This is going to be a long post.

Last weekend was so much fun. It started out with a 5 hours drive to see my lovely and preppy friend in  Boston that I haven't seen for 7 months now. This visit was suppose to happen last month, but after one thing or the other, it got cancelled. So, when hubby mentioned he had to go to Bmore for the weekend to take care of some business, I thought it would be a great time to take a road trip instead on staying home alone all weekend. Hence, I drove 10 hours over the weekend to spend 24 hours in Boston and I can truly say it was definitely worth it. I literally fell in love with the city. It's like NYC but on a smaller scale. I will love to go back with hubby and spend more than 24 hours.

I arrived there around 12 noon on Saturday. After a little catching up, chit chat and some recuperating from the driving, we headed out. I believed we left her place around 2pm and didn't return till past 10pm. We did so much walking and site seeing, I felt like I saw five different cities, but all in all it was fun.

 We started out in the North end / Italian neighborhood.
We walked by a church and decided to go in a say a quick prayer.
Looks real right? It's actually a wall mural.
 Had to take a picture of Paul Revere Statue.
 Loved this area, it was an endless sea of restaurants.
This place is apparently a very famous pastry shop. My friend insisted we go in and get something, but after I saw the crowd and line, I was like, no can't do! Luckily on our way back it looked like the line has died down some, so I gave in and we went in.


Made it out in one piece with these treats.
We both got the Cannoli. Oh, it was very good. I guess it was worth the wait. But we knew better than to finish it in one seating after the first bite.
On our way to the farmers market we came across a crowd participating in the National Pillow Fight day. It was fun to watch, and we almost got hit while trying to take pictures...lol


On to the farmers market. I wish we have one here, or maybe we do and I just haven't found it yet.

Then to the food mall. At least that's what I call it. You can find any kind of food in this building.
Waiting on the train and hauling around the rest of the cannoli, which eventually became desert after dinner. Had to grab some Starbucks to keep warm. I think it's safe to say it is still winter on that side.
Then we visited her school, Emerson College.
On to China Town
Made it to one of the popular parks by night fall, can't remember the name of the park.

Dinner time, finally! Since we've been walking around all day and we were both very hungry by now, we opted for something casual and fast. A thin crust pizza with fresh tomatoes, pesto, basil, mushroom and chicken. It was delish!


To end the night, we went to a lounge for cocktails since we had a casual dinner. That was the perfect ending to a long and fun filled day.
