Last weekend I traveled home to Boston to visit my family and friends. I had such a great time! I haven't been home since Christmas. Time goes by fast because I didn't notice that it had been that long. Saturday night I met up with my friends who I've known since we were in middle school. My best friend I've known since I was five years old! We decided to go Downtown to have dinner and stopped by the Boston marathon finish line to take photos. All my life I don't have one memory of going down to the marathon site but because of what happened last year I thought I should go and pay tribute.
I definitely did not know those people were behind me lol. Kind of crazy to think that I felt absolute no one around me while taking that picture. My friend Jackie, the photographer, didn't even warn me and gave no sign that someone was standing near me. I was curious why she was taking so long to take a photo and then I realized after seeing it what happened. Crazy story, I posted the image on Instagram and it turns out someone recognized one of the people in the photo and tagged them in the picture. Social media is wild!
Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar is a hot Mexican spot in Boston that my friends like to go to. I was super excited to try it because at the end of your meal they give you free cotton candy. Two of my friends ordered the ribs, I don't even like ribs and these looked really amazing. I ordered the chicken tacos because I loveeee tacos! Later I saw a photo of the grilled chicken salad and wished I got that instead.
My Grandmother and I have a lot in common. She loves makeup just as much as I do. I remember as a kid watching her apply her makeup in the mirror and curling her hair. My mom is the opposite, she didn't start getting into makeup until I showed her how to do it. When I arrived home for Easter in a jean button down shirt and leggings, I was shocked to see that my grandmother had the exact same shirt! She is very fashionable so I shouldn't be that surprised.
After Easter dinner my family surprised me with a Birthday cake! My birthday is on Tuesday the 29th. Since I won't be home to celebrate it they wanted to do something special for my big day. I was so full from Easter dinner, I only managed to eat a tiny slice. I meant to take a few pieces with me to New York and totally forgot that morning. I was bummed! This giant birthday cake for me and I barely ate it.
I'm excited for my Birthday next week and starting a new year!
