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

loving it.

The past week has been a whirlwind. I’m finally calming down, but really wishing for a week to just sit and get work done. But since that obviously isn’t going to happen, I’ll have to be happy with the fact that I don’t have anything too too crazy going on this week.

So, the Martha Stewart Show was fabulous. You probably read about it at We are not Martha, and we just put out our wrap-up post today. Anyway, I heart Martha, in case you couldn’t tell. Also, I hope you watched today because she did a hotdog tasting with Kevin Sharkey and we were in the studio audience for it. She tasted something like 27 hotdogs (in the meantime, it was 11:30 and all I had eaten was a granola bar at 7:00 a.m.). Oh right, you were probably at work today. Not everyone is so lucky to get to watch Martha on the daily. Woot.

Quite obviously the first in line. D-e-d-i-c-a-t-i-o-n

Oh, hi. And love you.

Wedding weekend was also tons of fun. My first childhood friend got married, which is both incredibly scary and completely awesome. About 14 of us high school buddies got a super nice house on the Cape and spent the weekend catching up, reminiscing, eating cupcakes, sipping wine, and just laughing a lot. I am so lucky to have such a strong group of people who have known me for so long. I think it’s rare to have so many childhood/high school friends and to stay so close to them. And I love excuses to spend whole weekends with them. We need to make more of them ASAP.

I always knew I was a sensitive person, but the wedding proved to me that I’m basically a mess when it comes to my emotions. The second I saw my friend walking down the aisle with her dad (who was my soccer coach for 4+ years), the tears started flowing. I. Could. Not. Help. It. I was basically bawling and I had to really work to hold back my tears several more times throughout the night. I have not a clue how I’m going to be a normal held together person at my sister’s wedding. I’m going to be crying all the way down the aisle and giving a speech? Yeah, not sure how that will work. It’s going to be very, very bad. And I’ll most likely end up ruining the wedding. Also, I’ll need a makeup person with me the entire night.


Chels and I did not plan to coordinate our dresses, I swear. In the one time we didn’t talk about our outifts ahead of time, they were basically the same color. Obviously. Number of people who asked if we planned it? Far too many.

Just the girls before the wedding ceremony. Perfect weather weekend!

Oh, hello beautiful cake. And beautiful bride.

Um yeah. This will be explained tomorrow at We are not Martha. But really, what else did you expect?


I have a couple more fun/exciting things to talk about, but I must catch up on my Google Reader before I expect anyone to read my babbling!
Soon :)

    I don’t see anything wrong with not able to ‘hold it together’ at a wedding and such.

    Personally, I am pretty sure I will cry at my own – and I am ok with that :)

    I’m like that at weddings too, even with people I DON’T KNOW.

    Can’t wait to see you in November!

    I haven’t been to a wedding since I was 7 years old. And know for sure I’ll lose my shit at the next one I go to. For sure.

    Hey! I just came across your blog and I’m really enjoying reading it! I went to college in Boston (at BU) and would have stayed there if not for job opportunities back home in NY. It’s such a wonderful city! I’m looking forward to reading more from you!
