Portsmouth, NH Adventures!

Hi Everyone (my whole 11 readers out there), I know, I’ve been a little lax on the posts lately but I’ve been a busy, busy little bee. You’ll see a ton of updates in the next few days…Ok, who am I kidding…tonight. Ha! I’ve been squirreling away the photo’s and posts, so get ready for a fun ride!

A few weeks ago, (Hey, I said I was behind!), I went to Portsmouth, NH to visit a dear old friend. It’s a long story, and I won’t bore you with the details, but she was my tutor in first grade, and if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be able to pronounce my vowels or identify a combined word (Example: doghouse. See, still got it.). Fast forward, 25 years, and after a quick Facebook search (thank you, Zuckerberg, I found my dear old friend and re-connected.) We decided to meet in Portsmouth, NH, which is a little over an hour away, for all you local Bostonians.

Portsmouth is a quaint seaside New England town, great for lazy Sundays (or Saturdays in our case) that boasts tons of cute little shops, concerts in the summer, and was once an Air Force Base (there is even a submarine you can tour). For more of the history on Portsmouth, go here. We went to a cute little bakery called Popovers on the Square for lunch. Each meal comes with mini or full sized popovers. What is a popover, you ask? (It’s OK, I had never heard of one either.) A popover is a light and airy baked treat (picture a cross between a croissant and a muffin). READ: Yummy.

We didn’t get to walk around too much as we had other plans (hel-lo, Kittery Outlets in Maine!) but it was a nice and relaxing afternoon, regardless. I would love to check it out when the weather is warmer.

So, dear reader, have you been to Portsmouth before? If so, what hotspots should I check out?



BIG Announcement.

So, after three months, I guess it’s time to update y’all…I moved to Boston! Ta da!  ::round of applause::

How was the move? This is how I like to summarize it: Remember that time I moved to a city where I didn’t know anyone, left all of my family and friends…my cat ran away on the way to the airport (more on him later), I didn’t have a car, my apartment wasn’t ready when I got here, and when the movers finally came with my stuff, they couldn’t fit my couch through the doorway? Yeah, me neither.

Oh-and then the marathon THAT I WAS AT was attacked by terrorists?! Yeah…me neither.

It’s almost comical (minus the Boston Marathon part). I mean, you just have to laugh at some point because it’s completely nuts. If anything, I’ve learned to roll with the punches.

You’ll be seeing a lot of posts of things to do around New England (I have a bucket list), restaurants to try out, and tips & tricks on the city (don’t drive. EVER.) Looking forward to sharing my new adventure with all of you 🙂 If you have an suggestions of things to do, I’m all ears!
