End of Summer

Thursday, September 24, 2015

I feel like all of my posts from the last few months have really just been weekend recaps.  But let's face it, I do nothing outside of work during the week so there really isn't much to talk about other than what I do on the weekends.

Saturday Josh and I headed into Boston for my birthday present.  He bought The Book of Mormon tickets for us. Even better, he bought tickets for a 2pm show.  His reasoning "I know you don't really like staying up late, so I thought the early show would be better."  He knows me so well!
We got into the city in record time and I was pretty hungry so we grabbed food at Boloco and sat outside people watching while we ate.  Despite it being mid-September it still felt like summer. (I'm glad I spent that time soaking it up because it definitely does NOT feel like summer anymore).

I had heard The Book of Mormon was great, but I didn't know much about it prior to going in.

I loved it.

I realized about 10 minutes into the show that I hadn't stopped smiling since the opening number.  My face actually hurt by the end from laughing.  I've seen a lot of classic/more traditional Broadway plays, but I am going to make a point of going to more satirical and fun plays in the future. 


Sunday we woke up early to drive down to Carver for King Richard's Faire.  We picked up a couple of Josh's friends along the way and met two more when we got there.  We entered through the gates and were in a wooded fair grounds recreated to look like a medieval village.  There were tons of little shops and shows and so many people in costume.  We spent the day wandering around (and of course made sure to check out the baby tigers!).  We ate, drank, and snacked.  I was exhausted by 3pm.  I went once when I was a kid and remembered loving it.  It was still a lot of fun, however considering I spent about 5 hours in the car that day and spent over $50 I might have to skip every other year of the fair.
