I was laying on the hardwood floor of apartment, doing crunches, wishing I had a yoga mat and pondering some thoughts about my adventure in Massachusetts. My first thoughts were of the wood beam that runs across our ceiling and the exposed brick on the exterior walls. This is the scenery most of my adventure has consisted of. I am in the house 5 out of 7 days. And I have found myself getting a bit on the crazy side, just from being cooped up in the house so long. I walk outside of the apartment twice a day, once to get the mail and once to get to the workout room. And I don't feel depressed, but I feel sad that my life is so unexciting. So to remind myself that I have a different and fun life, I thought I would reminisce on my weekends out around the town. Which KC has really good about getting us out to do something.
My first time out on the town was to the mall and I really enjoyed it. Even though I have seen shops and clothes before, I love to people watch. And people are definitely different here. Gold heart hoop earring are definitely the style right now, every girl wears them. And there are lots of different types of clothing worn, it is actually very refreshing, since everyone in Utah wears Down East Basic or Shade shirts. Which I am not dissing, I wear them too. It just gets a little cookie cutter back at home. Here people show their personalities in their clothes. I hope I get to the point and have the money to dress how I feel I should. Things would get a lot classier. But I guess this is what I will look like for the time being:
There will be more to the mall photos, at a later time. We tried to capture how big it was, but we didn't get time to take snaps of all the long halls and floors.
Last weekend we went to Northampton, which has been my favorite place we have driven around. It was beautiful. The picture below was as we drove through the "mountain", but it is more like a large hill. Even though this was in the mountain, pretty much everywhere you drive in Mass is like this, with a wall of trees, even the freeway.
We were told that the shops and food were great. It actually reminded me alot of Main Street in Park City. The shops were high priced and fansy, but with a hippy feel.
And in our search to find an outstanding Mass restaurant we hit a mexican place that our banker was raving about.
To give you a little intake, the beans tasted like they came from a can and they sold pinatas for $10. Hmm. I doubt we will be back, but then again for two large tostadas and a full plate with half beans/half mexican rice, it costs me $3.40. So then again, we might.
This weekend we plan to hit Hartford, CT. It is supposed to rain VERY hard so we will see what happens. But we will be going somewhere, I need fresh air, I need to get my sanity back.
