Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

the week in advance.

Reasons this week wins the award for best week ever:

-Tomorrow is Patriots Day, also known as Marathon Monday in Boston. While this is a state holiday, a lot of people I know don’t get it off. Of course, since I am on an “alternative work schedule,” I am granting myself the day off (for my recent good work habits). Sara and I can be found wandering Boston starting in the early AM, possibly sipping coffee with Kahula. And looking for bars that will let us in so we can watch the Red Sox game. Eventually we will make our way to the Marathon finish line and revel in the fact that we live in the fabulosity that is Boston.

-Wednesday, my favorite UNHer is coming to town. We will be going to the Isabella Stuart Gardener Museum, which I’m ashamed I have never been to. Then I’m giving Kyle a tour of Paper Source, which I’m certain will quickly become her favorite store. Can’t wait to see her!

-Wednesday evening I will start dogsitting for my two favorite little puppies in the world. Allegedly, my aunt now calls Mitzi “Houdini,” as she has recently learned to escape from her pen. Sweet. Let’s hope she doesn’t destroy any more of my personal property.

-Friday, my sister and her fiancee are moving to Boston for 3 months! I’m already sad as I know the 3 months will fly, but maybe just maybe they will end up back here after they travel to North Carolina and Austin. I’m also quite excited to visit them and my lovely cousins in Austin.

So, my week basically looks fabulous. I’m going to be fitting a lot of work in the PM hours, but then, how is that any different than usual? Seriously though, I can’t remember the last time I’ve been excited for a “week” as opposed to a “weekend.”

Bed time now as I have to be up earlier tomorrow than I do on a normal Monday. Ahh, tough life taking a holiday, huh? Sorry to all of you poor kids who don’t live in Boston and so don’t get to celebrate one of the best holidays of the year!

Flashback! From last year’s marathon. Wow. that feels like SO much longer than a year ago. Cannot even believe where I was at that point.
