Frost Ice Bar

After dinner we had reservations to go to the "Frost Ice Bar"

Frost Ice Bar is quite literally the coolest bar in Boston! It's always 21˚F and everything from the walls and bar, to the furniture and drink glasses are constructed of ice.  It was insane!

Before you go in they give you a huge jacket to wear and gloves, here I am in mine.  It was still cold, I guess I didn't have the alcohol to warm me up like everyone else did!

This ice chandelier looking thing was hanging from the ceiling

A giant ice swan

Laura was having a little too much fun ;) jk!

The cups were made out of ice too, which on the cool factor was really cool, but on the "my hands are going to fall off because they're so cold even with these gloves" factor, not so cool.

Definitely an awesome place to go to once, after that you're just someone who enjoys paying too much to torture yourself!  Now if they had a bar that stimulated the ocean breeze, the summer sun, and had Hawaiian surfers serving you then I'm ALL for that!!!

"One if by land, two if by sea"

This weekend my friend Laura came to visit me from New York.  I haven't seen her in forever so it was a ton of fun to get together and explore Boston together.

So I really know hardly anything about Boston, in fact here's what I know:
Freedom Trail
Boston Red Sox
Boston Marathon
…yep that's about it…
So we tried to do a little research so we could have fun in Boston and here are a few random stories and pictures from our adventures!

We started off the day in the North End of Boston, that place is sooooo full of Italian restaurants its INSANE!  So we of course picked an Italian Restaurant for lunch!  After lunch we bought tickets for an Improv show for that afternoon and then started walking the freedom trail.  We saw Paul Revere's home and the Old North Church and a few other things, but really Laura just wanted to get to Quincy Market. 
When we got there there was a guy doing a show outside in front of a big crowd.  He had someone put him in a straight jacket, tie him up with rope, and then hang him upside down, and surprise, surprise he escaped!  Here's a picture of him hanging upside down before he got out of the straight jacket.

 We walked around and there were a lot of cute things you could buy, but there's a "Cheer's" bar right off of Quincy Market and so they have a souvenir shop for the TV Show "Cheer's" and I loved this little baby onsie that you could buy!

Then they had this music toilet paper that I very seriously considered buying for my little sister… There's a real possibility that I'll go back for it...

After Quincy Market we went and saw our Improv Show and it really was very funny, I would definitely go see them again.  Then we were trying to figure out somewhere to go for dinner and we wanted the ultimate Boston experience, so we picked the oldest restaurant in Boston and the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S the "Union Oyster House" it was established in 1826.  And let me tell you, they did not disappoint!  Look at the poor guy who had to die for me tonight!

New Nanny Position

For those of you who care... I accepted a temporary nanny position in Massachusetts, it’s about 40 mins outside of Boston.  I was looking for nanny positions in New York City and then thought to ask a friend who nannies in Boston about agencies there and all of the sudden the thought of being near Boston seemed like a whole new adventure to me.

Anyways, this stay at home mom cut her hand really badly and had to have surgery to repair it. She of course can’t use her hand which means she can’t drive because legally you have to be able to grip the steering wheel with both hands and she can’t do a lot of simple things around the house or for her three kids.  Hence the need for a nanny!  

The job starts Monday and goes until the end of March for right now but she still doesn’t know when her hand will be better. It will definitely be a new adventure! I'm excited!  Here are a few pictures of the town I'm going to be living in (of course I'll be there in the winter so it's not quite the same!!!):
