Quickie Recap!

I'm back!

So I took Birthday Boy Joel to Boston for the weekend, where we stayed at a fancy hotel and ate delicious food at posh restaurants!
We did lots of fun stuff... and I had planned a fully detailed retelling of it for you all, but I actually have too much work to do! So you get a quick ridiculous list -

Limo driver with bad directions
Fancy modern hotel
Granary Cemetery (Saw tombstones for Paul Revere, Mother Goose, Ben Franklin's family)
Fresh squeezed lemonade in Boston Common
Got pooped on by pigeon
Gorgeous weather!
Rare Kobe beef at amazing restaurant
Horse drawn carriage ride
Take out dessert from Finalé
Surprise complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and wine from the hotel!
Amazing view
Fabulous hearty breakfast
Tons and tons of walking
Tall Ships
MIT Museum (totally cool!)
Indian for lunch
Saw cool graffiti, watched a drug deal in cool graffiti alley
Gruyere Truffle Fries and Wasabi Ahi Tuna Burger for dinner. Ah-Maze-Ing
Comfy bed
Sitting by the Frog Pond
Train home
Made Joel a birthday pie. He loved it. LOVED it.
Watched an old school Bruce Willis movie.

This hologram looks like my old high school principal!

Sorry for the quick and dirty recap! Hope you enjoyed it anyway!

Weighed in this morning, back down to 244.5 Which is nice to not be up to 247 still! Still a little sick, which sucks, and my knee is really angry.. so I am NOT looking forward to training tomorrow night.. but it'll be nice to be back-in-action!
