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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
