Out and About

I have a few obsessions lately that I can’t seem to shake. Most of my obsessions revolve around eating the same things over and over. I am obsessed with steak taco salads from Viva Burrito, near work. Every time I go there, and it is a few times a week, I get them. I will probably stop one day and never have it again.

I have been reading obsessively. Last weekend, I did nothing but read, take a 5 mile walk and start to transfer my blog from Blogger to Wordpress.  While I love to read,  my psyche is probably better getting out and seeing people. Even going somewhere, like Starbucks, to read, would have been better for me.

I just do better when I am with people. I am one of the most social loners. I am much happy when I have live contact with people. When I went to work yesterday, I was in such a funk that a massive amount of coffee did not even lift me up. I could have stayed in bed all day.

Luckily, I went to the Boston Blogger Meet & Greet, which was held at the Mass Ave Tavern on Mass Ave (duh) in Boston. I had a great time meeting some bloggers, whom I have been reading a while and some new-to-me bloggers. It was just what I needed.

I have been reading Molly from Wicked Cheap Boston for a while and it was great to meet her. I met some new to me bloggers like Kristin from Bishop&Rook, Ginny from GinntasticAlanna from Tactile Travel and many others but unfortunately I left my book with all of the bloggers listed at the bar. If you are local to Boston, you should come to the next one, it was a fun time.

It is restaurant week in Boston and tomorrow night I am going out to dinner with a few friends to No. 9 Park Street, a restaurant that normally I would not be able to afford. I will try my best to remember to take pictures.


  1. Sound like you're busy! I wish there were blogger events where I live. I live in such a small town, and I haven't heard of any in the nearby city.

    I have to make myself be social sometimes, too. I prefer to sit and read alone.

    1. I struggle with the urge to lock myself away and the urge to get out and be social. Social loner is what I am. I joined meetup.com and met a lot of people that way.

  2. A social loner is a good way of describing the way I feel sometimes. It's great that you have all of these blogger events coming up. I can't imagine finally meeting the bloggers I have been reading. It would be great and weird at the same time!

    1. I would love to go to Australia to meet bloggers I have been reading. Someday!

  3. Ooh, enjoy No. 9 Park. One of these days I'll eat there.

    Sometimes, I like to go to Panera to read. Just to have people around me and stuff.

    So just curious, is there a benefit of moving to Wordpress?

    Oh, I almost forgot - I got the Starbucks card, thanks! My hubby and I enjoyed breakfast on you the other week. : )


I love your comments!
