perusing and planning

i spent the entirety of yesterday morning looking up shops and restaurants for our trip to boston. i brought my coffee and breakfast into the office right after i woke up, and proceeded to peruse old magazines and trip advisor - reading reviews, and making lists.

this was my world for about 4 hours:

this week is jam-packed full of craziness and goodness alike. in fact, the next few weeks should be sufficient in both.

today i'm running errands to pick up a few things for our trip, and getting ridiculously excited about the taste of fall we're sure to experience in massachusetts. [according to the weather will range from about 60-75ish while we're there. how perfect is that??]

we plan to go to the museum of fine arts,

take a tour of fenway,


walk around the campuses of MIT and harvard,

MIT campus
harvard campus
visit the aquarium,

do the freedom trail,

and see the JFK library.


oh, and do some shopping, eat at some fantastic restaurants [lots and lots of seafood for yours truly...], and generally walk around and see the city.

we'll also get to visit martha's vineyard [as long as irene didn't annihilate it] and do a day tour of falmouth on the cape, where my father-in-law grew up.

to make things just a smidge better -- we've been generously offered a condo to stay in for [wait for it...] FREE while in boston, AND if all goes as planned i'll be able to get my first pumpkin spice latte of the season before we leave.

LOVE it!
woot! woot!
