C is for Camo, Coors and Classiness

Did you step foot outside over the weekend? If so, I think it’s safe to assume your shoes are probably still wet (unless they’re Gore-tex boots. Mine are not.) and you might possibly have a broken umbrella now in the trash. It was crazy out there!

Unfortunately we didn’t get to run in our race this weekend due to the rain, so that was a bummer. We were planning on it even if it were raining lightly, but it was really coming down so we decided it just wasn’t worth getting ourselves sick over. So Colin and I went to 9:30 mass (we were a few minutes late because of Daylight Savings – it’ll getcha.) Then we rushed over to Newton to drop off Colin’s car then headed to the Southie parade. The rain might stop you from running, but it doesn’t stop you from having fun.

We took the Green line from Newton to Park St., we then took the Red line from Park to Broadway. We figured we would probably be able to grab a cab to get to our friends party. We figured wrong. We decided to just go for it – couldn’t do much else. We power walked a nice little 2 mile walk in the teeming rain. And not to brag or anything – but I’m gonna brag – we didn’t even utter one complaint to each other while trekking! We had our game faces on and nothing was stopping us.

Camo + moustache + 30 of Coors = Colin keepin’ it classy

The party we went to was so much fun – always good to see our friends from Merrimack. It’s so hard getting together now, everyone is so busy being ‘grown-ups’. You have to plan so far in advance to see each other. What happened to living in the same building, just down the hall from one another?

The trek back to Newton wasn’t as joyful as our earlier trek. I was tired, cold, wet, hungry… the list could go on…. Luckily we found a bus took it to our friends Christine and Meaghan’s (aka The Nuge) place, got some food, hung out, then found a cab back to Newton.

Overall the day was boatloads of fun! (and rain!)

Check out some of these pictures from TheBostonChannel.com of flooding around MA. Tomorrow’s supposed to be sunny with a high of 51. I’ll believe it when I see it.

On a rainy day such as today what would be better than a movie? The Coolidge Corner Theatre is showing Best in Show at 7pm tonight, tickets are $9.75.

*I wrote about Stoddards Fine Food & Ale the other day. Quick correction… It is not yet opened. They are hoping to have their official opening Thursday, March 18th.*

Restaurant Week in Boston is March 14-19 and March 21-26. A TON of GREAT restaurants are participating – for a full list see here: http://ow.ly/1l5KZ. For a 3-course dinner you pay $33.10, some restaurants are even offering 2-course lunches for $15.10 or 3-course lunches for $20.10! It’ll be busy so save yourself some time by making reservations online through OpenTable.com. We are trying to decide which restaurants we’re going to go to – our top choices are Flemings, Capitol Grille, Strega, Tresca, Smith & Wollenskys. Wish we could go to all of them!

Colin sent me an interesting quiz today, http://kiplinger.com/quiz/financial_fluency/index.html?qid=24 to test your financial fluency. I got a 50 – terrible! Looks like I have to brush up on my stocks/bonds/savings/retirement knowledge. Luckily I’m taking a 2 week course all about the stock market in April, so that should help a little. :) Also, here is an interesting article about the vital years for retirement planning:

With that, I’ll leave you with this: Lady Gaga has said ‘yes’ to ‘Glee’

I can only imagine what this will bring! Can’t wait for Glee to come back in April!
