Boston And A Comedy Show

Hello friends!

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.

OOTD!2

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. 3

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.

From the Boston Market, you’re just a couple steps away from Faneuil Hall 5

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. 7

And then we made it to the Boston Harbor. 11

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 😉16

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!

17

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-20

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 🙂

xo, JJ

    Boston has some beautiful spots! I love that archway 😍
    Also you guys have such an insane donut selection! They all looked so mouthwatering! I haven’t heard of Jim Gaffigan before. But I dont know too many stand up comedians. I may look him up though, and I’ll keep an eye out if he comes out with a new show on Netflix. See if i can spot you guys on it 😂

  5. This sounds like an amazing day and now I’m seriously craving a doughnut 😂😭 they all look delicious. Over here where I live we don’t really have doughnut shops other than Krispy Kreme which is obvs amazing but there’s no other places and it sounds like you have quite a few! Anyway, enough doughnut talk … You look so pretty in all your pics and I’m loving your ootd! That jumper is too cute! And I can imagine that archway looking so pretty at Christmas, you will have to snap some pics when they turn on the lights! Waxwork museums are too much fun, at least you know it’s there now so you’ve got ideas for future weekend plans! The comedy show sounds brilliant, totally a luck m

    So jealous you got to see Jim Gaffigan! We love stand up and would love to attend stand up comedy shows, we’ve already missed a couple of our favorites because we didn’t have a babysitter.
    OMG those donuts look enormous!!
    I’d love to see the archway during the holidays! I believe you took some photos there last year, right??
    Oh, you’re standing next to my crush! Leo! I don’t know of any wax museums around here, but I’d love to go to one!
    And lucky!!!!!!!!! You got to be right in the front row!! 😀 Front row is the best for anything, even concerts! The concert Alex and I went to last month, we were near the front, it was close enough to see the band and I loved every second of it! Seeing a comedian live is a dream we have yet to do. We have sooo many favorites, Louie CK, Joe Rogan, Joey Diaz, Jim Gaffigan, and a few others.

    Okay I can not decide what I first ned to address, the fact Andrew brings home leftover sushi (which had me dying laughing, because he is not the only one who does that and it really is hysterical) or that sweater, because oh em gee I am obsessed! Your whole outfit is absolutely amazing!
    Okay now that that is out of the way, this post gave me all the feels! Seriously Christopher Columbus Park is one of my favorite places! (I have had a photo shoot or ten there ahem) I think it might be my favorite place in Boston.
    That is so cool (I am jealous!) That you got to see Jim Gaffigan! I love him AND you guys are famous please remember me when! ;p But seriously so cool that you guys got to sit front and center.
    Confession time, I have not been to the Boston Public Gardens since I was little (seriously I think I was ten or eleven the last time I was there) and your pictures are making me rethink life choices on WHY I have not gone there in recent years. SO pretty!
    I am glad you had such an amazing Saturday as always your pictures are amazing! ❤

  11. Oh Jenny, Boston is so pretty. I’m so jealous that you live there. When I was in Belgium last week, I bought a Boston-sweater (which you already saw) but I prefer to buy one in Boston itself. If I ever get over my flying-anxiety, Boston will be one of me #1 places I want to visit. I really love the setting of your pictures. That one with the little lake in the background is stunning! How amazing that your seats got upgraded! You definitely wear at the right place at the right time! So cool that you got to see that comedian from such a short distance! I’ll definitely look him up on Netflix, because I love a good laugh. I don’t think I can suggest you any good comedians, because all comedians I like, are Dutch. I do watch a lot of comedians on tv or on Netflix but they all speak Dutch. I do like Kevin Hart though, but I think you already know him! xo

    Hello, gorgeous!!!! LOVE that outfit. I’m obsessed with your sweater. OMG that pumpkin spiced one looks too stinking good to be true. There is seriously so much to explore in Boston.. I hate that it’s soooo far away. YOU TWO ❤ Also that story is too cool about getting the upgrade- so basically I should look for you in the audience of that show!?!? Hmm I would say my favorite Comedian is Chris Gethard! He is the host of one of my all time favorite podcasts- Beautiful Anonymous. SO stinking good. Sending you big hugs, girlfriend. I miss ya!
