Weekend in Boston: Part 2

We’ve been back from Boston for a few days now and getting back in the swing of things. It’s hard to return to work after a vacation and even harder when your house is in boxes! Thankfully the boxes are now gone and I’m almost ready to share a bit of our new house :) In the meantime I wanted to share the rest of the Boston pictures. Boston is definitely my new favorite big city!

boston tacos el pelon taqueriaThese tacos were on a list of the 50 best tacos in the America so of course I had to try them. I was not disappointed!

I highly recommend the airbnb we stayed at. The neighborhood was so pretty!

One of my favorite things we did was taking a morning walk through Esplanade Park. We brought coffee and breakfast, sat on a bench and enjoyed the slight fall breeze in the air.

Our first seafood of the trip at Legal Seafoods. It also happened to be my first clam chowder!


The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is seriously the prettiest museum ever. I highly recommend it!
We had a fancy night out at Craigie on Main, a cute little restaurant with a menu that changes daily based on local and seasonal ingredients. We opted for the Monday night 3 course special (instead of the two other options of 6 or 8 courses). It was really amazing and one of the best meals I’ve had! 
IMG_6890My first course was mussels.
scallopsFollowed by scallops for the main course.

The remaining 5 days of our trip were spent at the Inbound 2015 conference for work. The days were long but it was awesome seeing some of the speakers like Amy Shumer, Sophia Amoruso, and Aziz Ansari. Overall though, I am very happy to be home and finally enjoy the new house!

Trip to Boston: Part 1

We finally moved into our new house and shortly after jetted off to Boston for the week! This long (!) weekend we are enjoying a little vacation time before we attend a work conference starting Tuesday. I thought it would be really stressful but it’s actually nice to take a vacation from moving. When we get back to FL the new house will have a fresh coat of white paint and be ready to be decorated. And we’ll finally have wi-fi! In the meantime, it’s my first time in Boston so we’re trying to get in as much as possible while also taking some time to relax. Here’s what we were up to on our first day:

[our airbnb is a super cute one room apartment on a really pretty tree lined street that’s close to everything!]

We did the self guided Freedom Trail tour and had a great time walking through Boston and stopping at whatever we found along the way, including a few of the Freedom Trail sites of course!

We had a great first day that involved a lot of walking but overall I would say Boston has made it’s way into my list of favorite cities very quickly!

Welcome to New York

We’re back from NYC and I’m resting my legs, drinking some tea and about to dive into the million photos I took! This blog is a long one, but feel free to follow along!

During the first part of the trip we stayed in East Williamsburg with a friend. It was cool to get to experience a neighborhood and live like locals for a few days!

[i dragged everyone to Tacombi, a referral from The Londoner, and thankfully it was just as delicious as she said!] 

[picadillo de angus regio and tacos al pastor at Tacombi, also the guac was delish]
After dinner we went to Brooklyn for the fireworks and I of course did not get any good photos. :( but we had a great view!

Our last night we decided to stay at a hotel in Midtown and get a little more in the middle of everything.


IMG_6484[we stopped at The Smith for dinner. it was super loud but the meatballs were amazing]

IMG_6481[we stopped at Dos Caminos for a drink and they had an awesome cactus wall!]
IMG_6455[we stumbled upon Upstairs at The Kimberly on our walk home and I’m so glad we did! the views were amazing]

After walking way more steps than my FitBit goal, eating tons of delicious food and soaking in the city vibe, I had a blast but I’m also so happy to be home :)

Weekend in Savannah, GA

Last weekend the boyfriend and I headed up to Savannah for a couple days to celebrate our birthdays. It’s such an easy drive for us I don’t know why we’ve never done it before! (btw we listened to Serial the whole way there and we’re hooked!) It was my first time there and I kinda fell in love. We ended up having just the relaxing weekend both of us needed which included a lot of pretty walks, yummy restaurants, window shopping and listening to live music. :) Here are some of the highlights from our trip and some things I definitely recommend doing if you ever find yourself in Savannah:

The Olde Pink House and Planter’s Tavern– this place wins the award for my favorite thing in Savannah [also the most expensive but totally worth it], the basement bar was awesome and the food upstairs was AMAZING
Moon River Brewing Co.– we sat at the bar here a while and watched football, great beer, super laid back, nice outdoor patio if it’s warm enough!
Smiles Dueling Pianos – pretty touristy but very entertaining, definitely stop by later in the night
Vic’s on the River– went for happy hour which was amazingly cheap for such a nice restaurant, also enjoyed the pretty views of the river from the 4th floor
Vinnie Van Go Go’s– great pizza especially after drinking, [sidenote: I also carried our whole pizza for a 25 min. walk back to our apartment because it was warm and I was cold]
Goose Feather’s Cafe– nice, simple breakfast even though it was super crowded
Bonaventure Cemetery– really pretty place to take a walk and a camera
Jen’s and Friends– super tiny but worth stopping by for a drink, any martini flavor you ever wanted [or didn’t want]
Boar’s Head Grill and Tavern– stopped here for a drink, the bar was really cozy

Trip to the Myakka State Park

To celebrate my birthday this past Monday the boyfriend and I went on an adventure to Myakka State Park. It was a nice fall day (for us that means below 80) and it was relaxing to wander around the park taking in the trees and wildlife while snapping some photos along the way. For dinner we went to Cassariano, an authentic Italian restaurant in Venice, FL where I had my fill of wine, bread and pasta (pretty much my 3 favorite things!). All in all I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday! I highly encourage everyone to check out their local state park ASAP, grab a camera and enjoy the outdoors! And it never hurts to follow up with some great Italian food ;)

Weekend Trippin’

I just got back from Washington D.C for the weekend visiting my best friend. It was a lovely weekend getaway and I was very proud of myself for packing super light (even though I didn’t write a blog about it) Here are a few pictures from the trip!
