Got the blues.

We had a bit of a warm front that came through New England. It was warm enough to just wear a sweater and not freeze my bum off! I called my friend/photographer Shawn for a quick impromptu 10 min photoshoot and I think we’re becoming professional at these quick meetings. Ha, I really liked how these photographs turned out.

Hôm nay ấm áp ở New England. Tôi có thể mặc áo khoác và quần áo cho mùa xuân. Tôi gọi là người bạn của tôi (Shawn) để chụp ảnh. Tôi thực sự thích những hình ảnh rất nhiều. Tôi hy vọng tất cả các bạn thích họ là tốt!

You know what’s the best/worst part about having a weekend getaway with your best friend? YOU EAT EVERYTHING! Ha ha, I just pictured two girls just eating anything and everything they could get their hands on and then end up looking like the Blueberry girl from Willy Wonka. Thankfully, we made it out safe and sound without gaining more than 10lbs. Kidding..i’m kidding. However, we did take the liberty of indulging ourselves in little dessert cafes, and delicious seafood restaurants. Here are some spots to go to if you’re ever in the area of Boston or Providence, Rhode Island.

1. Finale Desserterie & Bakery (Boston):
Desserts range between 6-10 dollars a piece but believe me when I tell you that they taste like heaven the in mouth. We had the creme brulee, triple layer chocolate cake, a latte, and of course a cappuccino. It’s a cozy place right in the middle of Harvard.

2. Pour House Bar & Grill (Boston):
We stopped here for drinks and fried mac and cheese bites. I don’t even want to imagine how much calories were in each bite but that cheesy goodness was too good for us to stop. The Vodka and tonics were a nice touch with it. It looked to be a mid-20s crowd.

3. Tasty Burger (Boston):
Fast burger joint that asks you whether you want your burger medium or well. Do you guys ever dip your fries in chocolate shake?? YUM. We had the original burgers, onion rings, fries, coke and chocolate shake.

4. Cafeteria (Boston):
They had the best fried ice cream and this lovely drink called “cappuccinotini” which is exactly what it sounds like. It’s was strong but very good. Being that Boston was so cold that night, the drink helped warm us up!

5.  Island Creek Oyster Bar (Boston):
Unfortunately with this place, the only problem was that they didn’t do reservations and it was really crowded. Aside from that, the food was absolutely divine and the service was nice! My friend tried raw oysters for the first time and she liked it. It’s definitely a classy spot and would be a nice place to take your significant other. We had a dozen oysters, the crab cakes, clam chowder, and lobster served over ice.ImageImage

6. Union Oyster House (Boston):
Her dad really wanted lobster, and this place definitely had a great selection in size! Of course, like anywhere else, it was a pretty penny. What really drew me to this place was the ambience you felt being there. I just love that Boston has so many great choices in seafood restaurants. I remember being in Mississippi and the best thing they had for seafood was “Red Lobster”.

7. Marisol’s Cafe (Dartmouth, MA):
I’m a little biased to this one because it’s in the town over from me. However, if you ever get the chance to try a Chippi…you won’t be sorry. This place is infamous for it’s sexy lattes.

Image8. Geppetto’s Grilled Pizzeria (Providence, Rhode Island):
A nice change from all the seafood we were having. This Italian restaurant had a huge selection of creative pizzas. We tried the Bolognese pizza and it was different from the usual Papa Ginos for me. I liked it though. Any restaurant on Federal Hill deserves two thumbs up!

And that concludes our indulgent weekend of food! If anyone has the chance to visit any of those restaurants, be sure to let me know what you think! And if you have any recommendations about somewhere you’ve been in these areas, please share. Other than that, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

My friend/fellow blogger flew in from Chicago for the weekend and what was our first adventure? To the museum of fine arts! We saw different pieces from the Egyptians Era to Modern Art. It was definitely a different experience but we really enjoyed it.

From their website:
The Art of the Ancient World collection ranks among the premier encyclopedic collections in the world, with over 83,000 works of art from Egypt, Nubia, the Near East, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, and Anatolia. The objects in the collection range in date from about 6500 BC to AD 600 and cover a broad geographical expanse, from Britain to Afghanistan. There is something for everyone, including sculpture, jewelry, coffins, mummies, coins, weapons, architecture, vases, carved gems, musical instruments, and mosaics.

ImageI wish I had a full understanding of what art is..like, in a way where I can talk about it and just interpret what it means. I still have an appreciation for it nonetheless.

ImageBe sure to check out their website! It was definitely a fun way to spend a couple of hours.
