weekend in boston

hi friends. i’ve been quite distant in the blog world lately… it could be that i’ve been feeling uninspired. or tired. or blank.

or a combination of all three.

my last post was hard for me to write and left me with a lot of different thoughts in my head. i’ve been trying to sort through them as best as i can but it’s lead me to this place of feeling lost. kind of.

actually, it’s hard for me to write down words to describe what i’ve been feeling lately. it’s almost like there is TOO much on my mind that nothing is making sense to me.

or maybe it’s just best that i keep my thoughts and emotions to myself.

i’m stuck in this comfortable spot and i want to get out of it.

but how?

that’s the question. and i’m searching for the answer.

what are your thoughts?


on a completely un-related note, this weekend i went to boston. my brother lives down there so my parent’s and i drove down so we could all spend father’s day together. we left early on saturday morning.

just in time for the bruin’s parade (which was insane, by the way.) so many people. it was hot. i was claustrophobic. it was awesome. so much black & yellow. saw the stanley cup. pretty cool.

i was lucky enough to spend saturday afternoon with my dear friend, becky. she lives down there as well so of cooourseee i had to see her! she was able to find me through all of the screaming bruin’s fans. crazy. she and i spent the afternoon walking all around the city. not just a little walking… i’m pretty sure she had this secret plan to help me burn like 3039 calories by walking me everywhere hahahaha i love that girl so much!!

my friendship with becky is really special. i look up to her as my older sister and she’s been able to help me through some pretty rough times. most recently, she helped my make a good decision that i’ve been putting off. if it weren’t for her, i don’t know where i’d be right now. i’d be lost… she’s helping me become the person i’ve always wanted to be. i love every moment spent with her 🙂

biggest lesson learned from the weekend? i complain too much. i’ve never realized how much i complain before. i was listening to myself talking to becky and i was like “seriously amanda? you’re going to complain again?!”

it’s embarrassing! it’s something i need to work on…

on saturday night i went to the red sox game with my fam and some of our friends. i had beer for the first time. weird, i know. my first beer at age 22. (i’ve always been more of a hard alcohol OR wine girl.) can’t say i was a fan of the beer.

to be honest, saturday night is kind of a blur to me. i was just SO exhausted that i barely remember being at the game. it was a combination of the hot weather and me being tired. and i ended the night at the hotel where i didn’t get much sleep.

i’m a very tired girl right now.

this morning we all met up for father’s day brunch at “tavern on the water” — which is exactly what it sounds like. a tavern on the water. beautiful.

my brother and i gave our dad his present — we got him an iPad. he was kind of shocked. wasn’t expecting it. i think he loved it. i hope!

then my parent’s and i headed back to maine. but we made a little detour in boxford, mass. that’s where my dad grew up. he wanted to show me all around. i’d never been there before… it was pretty cool to see!

it was a good weekend spent with the people i love. i can’t complain.

tomorrow morning i am working out with my trainer bright and early. i still can’t feel my feet from all the walking i did this weekend… my workout should be interesting!

hope you all have a lovely weekend ❤

xo, A.

    I can totally relate with you about my comfortable spot. I think I’ve gotten into one too, but some things have happened recently that have kind of nudged me out of it, and Im kind of excited! I’ll start from the beginning:

    A few months ago, my best friend told me that her family was moving across the country this summer…and this Friday, sadly, that is coming into fruition. When I first heard the news, I was devastated (and still am!), but I know that this is God’s plan for our life and for our friendship. I have a feeling that this is going to help me break out of my shell a little (I’m a tad shy) and make some new friends within my youth group and my school.

    Secondly, an opportunity arose this week to be on the student leadership team at my church this next year. Honestly, I never would have considered applying for this position on the student leadership team if my best friend wasn’t moving. But, in my youth group, I feel like I always hang out with the same kids, and i want to meet new people. Plus, it’s my senior year! 

    Although I am devastated about my best friend moving, I think this will ultimately help me to break out of my comfort zone. Maybe it’s for the best.

    • tay! i am SO proud of you!!!!! you’re taking something bad and turning it into something wonderful — do you know how hard that is to do?! you are such a remarkable young lady!

      there is no doubt in my mind that the summer of 2011 will be anything but GREAT for you!

      and congrats on becoming a senior!!! that’s so exciting! you have some amazing things in your future 🙂 i can’t wait to see where your future takes you!

    Amanda I am so proud of all the challenges you have overcome in the past few months!!! I’m glad that you have “let me in” so that we can get through all of this together. You are so special to me! The little sister I never had 🙂 And yes, you can expect any visit to me will include LOTS of walking! That is the city way my dear!! Love you very very much!
