Last Night on the Mass Pike

After my last post, my week and mood picked up drastically; mostly due to the fact that Tuesday was my last day in the office for the week :). Thanks for all the nice comments and pick me ups on that post though, it always helps. Anyway, Wednesday was sort of like a “senior skip day” and I headed out to the last regular season Nationals game with a bunch of co-workers, and they just so happened to be playing the Phillies!

It was a delightfully ridiculous time, as you can probably see, and when I dragged myself in my front door at 9:30 pm (1 pm game) all I wanted was gallons upon gallons of water. Thankfully I was working from home on Thursday and could spend my morning in my pajamas recovering from the weekday debauchery, while also packing for my weekend trip to Boston! I headed out to Kacy’s apartment for a sleepover with her and Jess, so we could all catch our 10:30 am flight on Friday together.

here they are in the airport… seconds before Kacy realized she had abandoned her suitcase at a food kiosk. If you’re wondering how long it takes security to get the drug dogs out, it’s about 10 minutes

The flight from DC to Boston is about an hour and fifteen minutes, which gave the three of us just enough time to complete two crossword puzzles before landing and reuniting with the other two members of our group. Amy’s flight got in about 10 minutes before ours, and Steph scooped us all up and whisked us away to lunch.

Steph took us to Top of the Hub, which had gorgeous views of the city… and amazing food too

Amy and i… reunited and it feels soooo gooood

This is me, regretting my decision to not order the soup, embarrassing myself by scooping up all the last bits of Kacy’s soup with a piece of bread

After lunch, and a quick pit stop at Sephora, the five of us headed back to Steph’s house to regroup, freshen up, and pick up some necessities (booze and frozen pizza) before again ย heading back into Boston for the evening. We ended up at Remy’s in the Seaport district which was full of men, playing lots of sports, and boasting endless nachos. A win on all counts.

Kacy and Jess went with the biker chic look for the evening

Amy and I were bringing back the 80s… team leggings as pants for the win

Because of traveling, and walking, and all of the nachos, this happened before too long. It’s fine though because no one wants to be hungover with a full day of touristing ahead of them.

Because of the aforementioned early end to Friday night, we were all up bright and early Saturday morning ready to tackle the day… and some food. Steph took us to Zaftigs for brunch and it was the perfect fuel for a day of sightseeing.

LEAVES! Waiting for our names to be called… by the end of the wait we were 5 inches from the door.

After stuffing our faces, we began our tour. Steph took us from Government Center/Quincy Market, through Boston Common, and the Public Garden, all the way down Newbury Street.

Pausing for a photo in the Public Garden, where we encountered no less than 10 bridal parties taking photos. Wedding season… sigh.

so pretty, we were all wondering where Matt Damon or Ben Affleck were to whisk us away like we were in some romantic comedy

This is getting quite long winded, so I’ll wrap it up as quickly as possible. After a pit stop for some beers, we again went back to Steph’s to change and freshen up before heading out to Watch City Brewing Company for beers and dinner. That’s where our night ended and I’m pretty sure they’re going to ask Steph to never bring us back there.

Pre-gaming for dinner… totes natural. I am unsure if this outfit makes me look like Robin (aka Batman’s sidekick) but I like it.

we are awkwardly delightful, sing too loud in public, monopolize the jukebox, and I love it.

I got home around 3:30 yesterday, and could barely keep my eyes open until the end of the Yankees game. It was a fun and amazing weekend, and I miss all your faces already. With no vacation days to look forward to until Thanksgiving, and no trips on the horizon, this week is a major let down compared to last. Oh well, guess it’s time to start planning something else?

Happy Mondayyyy.
