What We Did This Memorial Day Weekend part 1

Hi! I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend! The weather wasn't great up here (until yesterday) but we didn't let that stop us from having an amazing 3-day weekend! Here's a recap!


Ryan and I started the day out with a good workout at the gym in our complex. I'm trying to build up my endurance, so I hopped on to the treadmill and completed an interval run for 2.75 miles! We wanted to get a workout out of the way before we began our exciting day in Boston!

As I mentioned in my last post, Saturday we had big plans to go to Fenway for my first Red Sox game with our awesome friends Kristen and Stephen! Side note: Kristen and Stephen have a blog as well which can be found here! Read it!

The game started at 1:35 so Ryan and I left Weymouth early to get into the city with plenty of time to explore before the game. Unfortunately, Boston is a TOUGH city to drive around and park in (much better to walk or take the train if you can) so it took us a good hour to get near Fenway and find a place to park. By the time we met up with the Kehner's, we only had time for Ryan, Kristen, and Stephen to grab Brats at a cart outside the park and head in before the first pitch!

Deciding to go the game happened at the last minute, so by the time we bought our tickets, the cheapest seats available were almost $60 each. Instead of splurging for our first game, we decided to buy "standing room only" seats, which really worked out better since we got to roam around the park and stay in the covered section during the rainy, less than ideal weather we got during the game! During our time inside Fenway we had a photo-op with the "Green Monstah", searched the entire park to try our first Fried Dough, and of course, watched a little bit of Baseball!! 

Fried Dough- A lot like funnel cake, just doughier!

The game started out a little slow and we were losing from pretty early on, but in the 8th inning, everything exploded and the Red Sox won the game!! It was an awesome experience  and I can't wait to go to another game (hopefully the sun will be out this time though!)

After the game, the four of us walked over to Boston Beer Works to get a table, eat dinner, and watch the Bruins win! Overall, it was a great day for Boston sports and the Bruins advanced to the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs!

We absolutely LOVE hanging out with Kristen and Stephen and will miss getting the four of us together this summer while Stephen is traveling! I'm so glad we found each other in New England! 

I planned on writing about our entire Memorial Day weekend in this post, but it's already pretty long and I have to get back to studying for my 2nd MTEL! T-minus 10 days until test time! 

Sunday and Monday recap will come soon!! 



  1. Stop being so dang cute all the time!!! Hopefully our paths will cross again so we can hang out. :) Miss my gym buddy!

    1. I know! I hate that we had to move SO far away from each other! I hope you're doing well and we definitely will have to plan something next time our husbands are in the same place!
