so. much. dessert.

today it was over 96 degrees in boston. 96!!
yesterday was in the 70's, and then all of the sudden,
heat wave.

so when mike met me after work we decided that we needed to get to an AC, stat.
we ended up at the chart house restaurant.
we cooled down and ordered clam chowder (crazy, i know, but it is becoming my favorite food) 
but we had to send it back because it tasted like what i 
think cleaning supplies would taste like.

then we decided to order the molten lava cake.
we waited 45 minutes for the lava cake.
we probably won't be going back to the chart house.

after we got home and relaxed for a little, we decided to walk to the pier near
our apartment and get ICE CREAM. 
seriously, we're the worst.
so we didn't have dinner. 
just cake and ice cream.

not a great picture but that's my
ice cream and in the 
background are some boats
and you can see the lights of boston.
fun :)

this weekend

this past weekend, mike and i went out to the gay pride parade in boston! i've never been to a pride parade before so i was very interested to see what it'd be like. and it was a beautiful day so we wanted to spend it in the city!
here are a few pictures...

after we watched part of the parade and listened to a drag queen band called "aerochicks" (they were good!!), we wandered over to the market at haymarket and stocked up on some fruit. 
it all looked so good.
we might have bought too much. oops. 

 these are dead fish. we did not buy these. they were smelly and gross.

free stuff!

the other night mike and i were headed to the grocery store when we noticed a sign in the lobby of our building that offered a free armoire. mike has said numerous times that he'd like an armoire to hold his suits and dress clothes and to free up some space in the closet for me (since my bureau was bursting at the seams with clothes and i complained every time i had to put clean clothes away...) so he called the number and the nice lady said we could have it!

so mike scheduled to go pick it up at 11am the next day...because yes, he has the best job ever and can be free at 11 on a tuesday. 

i'm not quite sure what happened while i was at work.
but when i got home, we had STUFF.
i'm talking 4 new tables (side, nightstand, entryway, and one for the balcony),
new bookshelf,
another barstool that miraculously goes perfectly with our other two,
a huge, beautiful armoire,
and a pretty big Coach bag!

like i said, i don't really know how it happened...
but i obviously have a pretty charming boyfriend ;)

here it is. it's huge and wonderful.

rainy day

today it was really really rainy all day. so we decided to stay in and do...absolutely nothing. 
the past couple weekends have been super busy for us so we wanted to hang in our apartment and relax.
we ate chips and salsa and watched dawson's creek (streaming on netflix).
mike is so nice about watching ridiculous shows with me. :)
i really like lazy days doing nothing with my boyfriend.
the end.

ps...did you know that before yesterday, mike had never had a starbucks coffee?! neither did i! so of course we had to go get one right away!

he ordered some fancy ethiopian coffee that only 150 starbucks stores in the world have, and hated it. haha.
so we split my white chocolate mocha and walked through the commons. it was sort of perfect. :)

boston lately

so mike and i moved from new mexico to new hampshire, from new hampshire to massachusetts. living with mike's parents was a great transition for me...they were so fun to live with and we were all very cozy all the time (a little too much of the time if you ask mike)! 

however, living and working in boston has been very fun so far. i am (not so) slowly but surely falling in love with this beautiful city. here are just a few of the reasons i love boston so far.

tons of yummy pizza places (uppercrust pizzeria)

random spottings of cool things in the city

going to fun games

this clock tower. my favorite at the moment.

but most of all, living with this guy ;)

have a great weekend!

First post

For my very first post on this teeny blog, I'm sitting on the couch (in my pj's) in my apartment watching Mike play Wii Tennis. It seems fitting that we are doing such regular and everyday things while I start this blog, because that's what it is going to be about. I just want a way to chronicle our life somehow and let my family see it, because it seems to be going by so fast. So if you want, join me on this little adventure for the next however long I'll keep this writing thing up. ;)
