Thank you to those who checked out my first post- I truly appreciate it! :)
This weekend was great fun. I was lucky enough to have a visit from Michael. He arrived late Friday night and left this morning (yay for the Presidents!) On Saturday, we went out with a bunch of friends from the STM (School of Theology and Ministry). It was the first time Mike was able to meet most of the people I spend my days with here in Boston. I was excited he was able to meet a good chunk of the people who keep me smiling. We started the night out at an Irish pub in the Faneuil Hall area. For those who are new to Boston or planning a visit sometime soon-I highly suggest checking out this area. Quincy Market is great and I always feel very Bostonian when in this section of town. Of course, I tell everyone I feel "very Bostonian" and then end up looking like the biggest tourist ever-but that's okay.
After we ate dinner at the pub, we headed to another Irish pub. Ha. Can you tell I miss Ireland, or what? I studied abroad in Dublin my junior year and miss it dearly. There was live Irish music at this pub and one of the first songs played was "Galway Girl." (Ever seen PS I love you? It's the song hunky Gerard Butler plays to win over the main character's heart.) Anyways, I'm a bit obsessed with this song. I always requested it in Ireland and was laughed at because it's an Americanized Irish song and not truly Irish-oh well, I still love it!

Here's some pics from the weekend:

As always, I was estatic to have Mike visit. It always goes by too fast!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
Anyone else love Faneuil Hall?
