Boston / Newport Trip!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here's a recap of my trip to Boston. Here's a little background story- before I got married, I lived in New York and my husband lived in Boston. So for three years we did the long distance thing. Every other week one of us would travel to see the other. After we got married I quit my job in New York and moved to Boston so we could be together. We came to the conclusion that a 600 square foot apartment for two adults and one cat was a bit cramped to say the least. I really didn't have anywhere to put my stuff. My husband reeeeeally misses Boston for a whole bunch of reasons, but housing affordability is not one of them.  Boston is super walkable and beautiful. One of our favorite things was to walk from his apartment to our favorite restaurants. We would do it during the fall/spring weather and cool summer nights. Lots of memories just walking hand in hand for hours. Like I said, while in Boston we walked about 9 miles a day

NOLA Trip!

I've never been to NOLA before so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I knew it gets crazy during Mardi Gras, but let me know you it is still pretty crazy on a regular weekend, so I can't even imagine how bad it gets during Mardi Gras.  We landed in New Orleans just in time for walking around the French Quarter for a bit before heading to dinner.  We stayed at the Hyatt right in the French Quarters. Bourbon Street So there are LOTS of drunk people walking around Bourbon Street day and night.  I'm not big on drinking so it's a little awkward for me to be around this kind of crowd.  If I never had another drink in my life, I really wouldn't miss it! Street Performers Our first meal was at Deanie's There is a lot of fried food in New Orleans.  The first night there we went all out, as you can see in the above photo.  After that, we were kind of sick of it to be honest!  In fact the first night was the only night we ate fried food.  Afte
