R.I.P. MONEY AND NAIL

20180306_084226.jpg

The weekend was solid. I had to move my Friday night plans, due to do a hurricane-like storm that they keep using overly exaggerated weather terms like “bomb cyclone” to describe. Don’t even get me started on that, I’m sure I could write a series of posts on how that term really gets under my skin. I mean, the storm did a lot of damage to the coast, as it coincided with the high tides. But still, let’s stop making up crazy weather terms. Don’t go chasin’ bomb cyclones, just call them storms or hurricanes like we’re supposed to.  MOVING ON, Andy and I had a very belated Valentine’s Day steak dinner at Abe & Louie’s in Boston. We’re not Valentine’s Day people, but any excuse for a steak dinner, we’re on board. So we ventured there on Saturday night. I got the surf & turf with a filet mignon topped with crab. It was delicious! Afterwards, we went out for some more drinks. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we got our taxes done and got screwed because we’re married. Fun! We should get our marriage annulled for the tax break. Also, Andy’s car died in the parking lot at the tax place. So we had to get it towed. The steak was a real saving grace for us. Praise Jebus for steak!

On Sunday, we went to see Black Panther. It was really good! But we were stuck behind some family that thought it would be a grand idea to take all 14 toddlers to a PG-13 movie. Don’t worry folks, there is a special place in hell reserved for these kind of people that don’t understand how toddlers work and think they will sit thru a 135 minute movie meant for adults. There is also a special place in hell for the old man that decided he needed to loudly narrate the whole fucking movie to the theater as it was happening.

Oh yeah, I injured my toe a few months back. (If you get grossed out easily, you best stop here!) Not entirely sure how I injured it. But I think it had to do with wearing these very cute, but extremely uncomfortable shoes to Boston Comic Con over the summer.  I got a blister on the middle toe of my left foot. I don’t think it ever fully went away, until it recently popped. I guess the fluid went under my nail. I thought the stain on the nail would just grow out after a while. Not so much. My nail FELL OFF since a new nail is growing back. I’ve never had this happen before and I’m thoroughly freaked out/grossed out. My question is, why couldn’t my pinky toe be sacrificed to the nail gods instead?! That I could deal with a bit better. 

It doesn’t look as bad as I would envision something like this looking, but it sucks. It doesn’t hurt or anything, which is a plus. But it’s just very frustrating that it’s going to take over a year to grow back. I have my honeymoon coming up. So I’ll have to wear a band-aid over it. I also can’t take nail vitamins, as biotin breaks out my skin. So I’ve been using  keratin oil on it twice a day, hoping it will help it grow. I also have been keeping it covered up just in case. Not sure what else to do at this point. Does Lee make press on nails for your feet? hahaha

IT’S MYSTICAL!

Box

I am no stranger to the pizza establishment that is Mystic Pizza in Mystic Connecticut. I usually go there about once a year (or so), as I love the area. Plus it is pretty close to a couple of casinos. A couple of weeks ago, my mother-in-law brought up Mystic Pizza in a conversation. I told her about the actual pizza place in Mystic and how good the food is. Later that week, someone at work randomly brought up Mystic Pizza and the neighboring aquarium, unprompted by me.

I went to trivia night after a friends birthday dinner. Of course one of the final round questions worth 10 whole points was about the movie, Mystic Pizza. Needless to say we got that question right! Also, one of my friends on IG went there over the weekend and took loads of pictures. I think the universe is telling me I’m long overdue for a trip there. Don’t worry, universe I have listened! I have since planned a trip in May.

COOL AS ICE

NH2

Happy #tbt to the last time I visited the ice castles in NH

My eye is twitching, so I’m ready for this short week to be over. Bring on the weekend! I am heading up to NH this weekend with my friend Erin. We’re going to visit the ice castles, before they close next week for the season. I went once a few years ago. The line SUCKED. We were stuck next to an annoying girl who wouldn’t stop complaining about how cold it was. It got the point where a mother and child in line offered up the child’s gloves and scarf in an attempt to shut her up. Unfortunately, she declined. So we all had to hang out in line for an hour and a half listening to Debbie Downer. FUN!

Thankfully, they have improved the ice castles since (so I’ve heard). They now offer timed tickets and only offer limited ticket sales on site. They also moved the castles off site of the ski resort. This will make it much easier because we were standing in line waiting to buy tickets, which is where the cluster fuck was. PLUS, we’ll be VIP. My friends cousin works there, and will be letting us in! I’m very excited to get away for the weekend. We’re probably going to be doing some exploring and finish the weekend off with pancakes at Sugar Shack. I think we’ll also be doing some outlet shopping as well. Can’t wait!

LET’S HANG OUT IN A BUBBLE AND DRINK?

20180220_085455.jpg

I was very much looking forward to the long weekend! On Saturday night, Jamie and I decided to check out the “igloos” on top of the Envoy hotel in the seaport area of Boston. It was a lovely lady date! We had to wait in line for an hour to gain access. It actually went by pretty fast, oddly. Once we got there, the space only has 6 igloos, 4 of which were reserved for private parties. Thankfully, we managed to snag one with some other people. The ones that are open, are a free-for-all. You share them with random people. I didn’t mind, we made new friends. Each igloo is heated and has colored lights on the inside. You should definitely dress warm if you opt to go.

After we enjoyed our drinks, we were starving. They don’t serve food on the roof. So we made our way down to the hotel restaurant. The food was excellent, so I would recommend the Outlook Kitchen & Bar. After dinner, we opted to check out the Scorpion Bar for dessert. I guess it’s new, I’ve only seen this restaurant inside the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. We ordered the churros, not realizing they would give you A TON! We were thinking we’d get one giant churro of each flavor. WRONG! We got 5 pieces of each kind, they were quite sizable. We split them up and took home what we didn’t finish.

We finished the night at Yotel. Apparently they offer the tallest rooftop bar in Boston. They have an Olympics theme set up, which we got behind! Jamie and I took pics on the podium, I’m sure we looked like huge weirdos.

On Sunday night, I was back in the Seaport area again. This time I was with Andy and his brother to check out the live podcast of Small Town Murder. It was a good podcast! I need to catch up on their station though, I’m very behind. All in all, a fun weekend!

POPCORN ADDICT

IMG_20180213_191023_158.jpg

The other night I went out to a nice group dinner for a friends birthday. Incidentally it was also the night I usually go to trivia. We had a nice dinner and great (read: inappropriate) dinner conversation with people we just met. haha! That’s how you know you’re having a good time, just dive right in! Since trivia starts kind of late at the bar we go, I was able to meet up for trivia after dinner. I only missed half the game.

My husband knows me well, and saved the popcorn for me for when I showed up. I was full from delicious Mexican food, but I still ate anyway. It was good that I turned up when I did, I helped our team get 2nd place!

IN HONOR OF THE SUPERB OWL

SuperbOwl.0000000000

Sharing one of my favorite wedding memories. It doesn’t even involve me or my husband. Instead, it involves the best man and good ol’ TB12! We didn’t realize when we booked our wedding venue, some of the Pats players stay at the hotel the night before the game. Some of the players just turn up for meetings.  The best man had to run up to his room during dinner, and on his way back to the reception had a chance encounter with TOM. Holy cow! We also met some of the coaching staff and another staff member asked the DJ to turn down the music. He politely declined. No harm no foul, because they won the game the next day anyway.

OH HEY, 2018!

IMG_5864-COLLAGE

I’ve been super lazy about updating my blog for a couple of months. At first I blamed the holiday season, but now that it’s well past the holidays, we can just blame laziness. I might do a few recaps of what I did over the holidays, but I probably won’t get around to it. Haha! So let’s just start with the weekend. It was a long weekend, which was nice! I went to a car show on Saturday, it was pretty cool to check out all the cars.  There was also an RV part, but we didn’t have tickets for it. Maybe next year we will check it out.

IMG_5885-COLLAGEThat night, we went out for food and drinks to watch the Patriots game. I was supposed to meet up with friends after, but I was too cold and tired to leave my spot at the bar. 

On Sunday, Andy and I went to the Mapparium. I finally got to use my new DSLR camera I got fromAndy Claus. Which reminds me, I need to sell my old one on eBay. I was in need of an upgrade. Anyway, while I was allowed to take pictures inside the Mary Baker Eddy library, they do not permit pictures inside the Mapparium. I didn’t realize this! I also didn’t realize it is a library dedicated to the founder of Christian Science movement. While it’s not my religion, it was interesting to find out how it came to be. I just wasn’t expecting this, haha! I guess I should have researched this more. But I was dazzled by the giant glass globe.

The Mapparium is a giant glass globe with a glass bridge across the center you can walk thru. It was built in the 1930’s. Each glass panel was hand-painted and cured in an oven. The acoustics inside are crazy! My voice sounded super loud in the center. Anyone standing on the outside could hear people whispering clearly. Since they don’t allow pictures, I used their selfie wall to get pictures. I was tempted to sneak some inside with my phone, but the guide seemed to be pretty watchful, and I didn’t want to get called out. 

After we got back from the Mapparium and lunch in the area, I went to see I, Tonya. I really liked it! I do feel really bad for Nancy Kerrigan. I’m sure she didn’t anticipate for the world to re-live her pain 24 years later. Also, I recall back in 2010  tragedy struck her family. Her brother assaulted her father to the point where he passed away. So sad!
