a day trip!

I just realized 'arrivals' is spelled wrong here - the bear's still cute!
Duck boats! A must if/when you visit Boston!

This past weekend, we escaped to Boston for a quick little day trip! It was a really beautiful day. I love New England, but damn does it get cold. I'm not looking forward to the winter. Mostly because I can't seem to figure out where my winter coat is. I know it has to be somewhere... eh, I'll find it.

We wandered around for a bit before making stops at Marathon Sports (new running shoes for B, a pair of running gloves for me), and a cupcake place I can't remember the name of. It's new, and it's on Newbury Street. I'm too lazy to Google it. After that, we went to see Skyfall, and then we had dinner with a few of our grad school friends at a Korean place! I stuffed my face full of kimchi instead of socializing. I am a terrible friend. Hopefully they understand that kimchi is my life force.

That's all for now! :)

Salted caramel and chocolate ganache... mmm.


  1. Sounds like a perfect week, Esther! And I am so glad you mentioned the cold. Matt and I had Boston short-listed as a place to move. Edinburgh won because I said Boston is too cold. Okay, okay, so Edinburgh might only have five hours of slanted daylight in the winter, but it's still above freezing ;)

    Nom, nom cupcakes (and kimchi!)


    1. Boston has its charms, but the winter weather is definitely not one of them! And if I were pressed to choose between Boston and Edinburgh, well... that'd be a close one! :)

  2. I can always rely on you for a dose of cuteness!

    1. You know me and my obsession with cute things! :)
