I finally found some down time to sit down and write. Which I’m excited about because I want to purge the events that happened this weekend while it’s still fresh in my mind. But today, I’m only doing a partial weekend recap, so stay tuned for the other half.
Earlier last week Andrew comes home and tells me he has a surprise for me. I’m not the best with surprises, mind you, last “surprise” Andrew brought for me was his leftover store bought sushi lunch. Which to be fair, Market Basket has pretty darn good sushi that I get quite often. But in this scenario, let’s just say its the thought that counts.
Fast forward a bit, the surprise ended up being tickets to a comedian that we both really like; Jim Gaffigan. If you like stand up (which I don’t care for- but I really enjoy his work) you can watch him on Netflix. I died laughing every time we watched his series. So needless to say, it was a great surprise and I was ecstatic to go.
Saturday comes rolling in and it’s a beautiful day out- 75 degrees and sunny. So instantly I tell Andrew that we should go frolic in the city until the show since it’s all in the same vicinity.
I love this sweater so much. The ribbon laced down detail is my favorite.
As soon as we landed into the city we got off the T and went right to the Boston Market because I was in dire need of something sweet. I knew they had cider donuts inside but I completely forgot that Union Square Donuts has a little stand in there. USD’s is my FAVORITE donut shop to date. Angel Food and Bakery in Minneapolis and Krispy Kreme’s are a close second but neither are easily accessible. I’ve been begging Andrew for days to go over to Somerville so we could pick some up but we haven’t gotten around to it so this got me super excited.
My go-to one is the Maple Bacon until we spotted the Pumpkin Spiced one (bottom row, second one in from the right) and you know your girl was SOLD.
A glance at the Market.
From the Boston Market, you’re just a couple steps away from Faneuil Hall
And we were making our way to the Boston Harbor
I love this archway, located in the Christopher Columbus Park. My favorite is when it’s lit up in blue Christmas lights at night.
And then we made it to the Boston Harbor.

It was actually a lot hotter by the water front than I anticipated so we didn’t stay there for too long. We carried on with our frolicking. We started to head towards the Boston Commons.
On the way we saw Leonardo DiCaprio 😉
I had no idea a wax museum opened at City Hall but I’ve been dying to go to one but maybe next time!
And inevitably we made it to the park. The Public Gardens (next to Boston Commons) is actually gorgeous right now for the fall.
We grabbed dinner at a new (new to me) Thai place nearby the theater that we were going to be at. Which BTW was really delicious! And then it was time to go!
So funny story: we were waiting in line with everyone else to get in when all of a sudden a strange man comes up to me and Andrew and asks us if we wanted seat upgrades. UM YEAH!!!! So he hands us these orange wristbands, we take them, and his immediate response back was a pushy “put them on now!” We found it to be really odd but we did anyways-
Come to our surprise, we ended up finding out that they we’re doing a live taping of Jim Gaffigan’s show (maybe to be put on Netflix?!)
So we found where our REAL seats were suppose to be, literally 2 rows from the last row of the theater. But because of our orange bracelets, we were RIGHT next to the stage. Literally it was stage, Andrew, and me. Along with some other lucky guests who also had the orange bracelets as well. IT WAS AMAZING. So happy and thankful- definitely a right place at the right time moment, kind of situation.
And here is is!
It was a hilarious show, he had us laughing from start to finish. Even if I did get on camera then I probably looked like a fool laughing my butt off. That was my first time seeing a comedian live and it just did not disappoint.
Do any of you have a favorite comedian, if so- share down below 🙂
