Wicked Good . . . Boston

Image
There are many places throughout the United States that are steeped in history and worth visiting, but one of my favorite historic cities to visit is Boston, Massachusetts. With so much to do in Boston, I've listed some of the must see places during your stay.

Old Town Trolley Tours.  One of the best trolley tours in Boston with narration by the trolley driver. There are 20 stops including Paul Revere's House, Faneuil Hall, Cheers, Copley Square, State House, and so much more. Get on and off the trolley as many times as you like to further investigate the sites. Don't want to get off at any of the stops? The tour takes approximately two hours from start to finish if you stay on the trolley the entire time.Union Oyster House.  One of the most famous seafood restaurants in the city, many famous people frequented the Union Oyster House including JFK. You may luck out and get to sit in his favorite booth!John F. Kennedy Library & Museum.  Situated by the water, the John F.…

Flying Through Wright-Patterson Air Force Base

Since I was a small child, I've enjoyed running, and it is likely because my parents were runners . . . my mom still is.  Don't get me wrong, I have my days when running feels like a chore, but I think that goes without saying for any sport that requires training.
The distance I typically choose for a race is a 5k, which stands for five kilometers . . . the equivalent of 3.1 miles.  On occasion, I run a 10k race (10 kilometers or 6.2 miles). Recently, I decided to try half marathons, which is 13.1 miles. Don't ask me why most of the races are specified in kilometers with the exception of the half and full marathon because I truly don't know!
Since I am a slow runner and absolutely detest hills, I wanted a race that was beginner friendly (huge time limit) and with little to no hills, which is very hard to find in the metro-Atlanta area. I began looking for half marathons online that would met my criteria and was having trouble finding one that was nearby. Flipping throu…

Product Review: Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Image
Earlier this summer, I stumbled across a website called Influenster.com. Curious, I checked out what they are about. Influenster.com offers its members products to try for free. The only catch is members have to review the product or products they receive. This sounded like a great opportunity, and I signed up.
This past Saturday, I received my first product to test. It came in what is called a "VoxBox", and the product is Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs, which is a leg makeup that is supposed to cover up any freckles, blemishes, etc.  And, let me tell you, I was super excited to try this product.
When I first put it on my legs, I thought I might have incorrectly read what the product was for because it made my legs look darker, and I thought that it might actually be a tanning lotion of sorts. However, I didn't read it wrong . . . it is a makeup for your legs.
Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs did help cover up some of my imperfections on my legs like some minor freckl…

Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Image
After reading the last few words of the novel, I set it face down on the bed beside me and asked, "Did that really just end like that?"
Never in my life has a book made me as angry as Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. So much so that after finishing it, I had to sit there for a minute thinking about what I had just read before picking it back up off the bed and throwing across the room.
Of course, after throwing it across the room, I jumped off the bed to pick it up the floor . . . worried that I had damaged the book. Yes, I know you're probably thinking I'm neurotic, but I like to keep the books I buy looking nice.
Gone Girl as a whole didn't make me angry . . . just the ending. I hated the fact that Nick decided to stay with Amy after all she put him through but understand his need to protect.
For this reason alone, this made Nick a strong character in my mind because he was willing to go to extremes to protect the ones he loved. On the other hand, it made me so an…
