Traveling Suitecase

Greetings from Ottawa, ON!  I'm laying on my hotel bed and happy to be warm because it's cold outside!  Let's just hope the weather stays under control for my roadtrip back home tomorrow.  Ottawa, ay?  Yes.  I found out yesterday that I would need to drive up here, by myself, in mid-December for work.  Bascially, what I have to do will take 4-8 minutes and then I'll be done.  So I have to do that tomorrow morning and then drive back south to the States.  It's also my work Christmas party tomorrow during the day and I'm going to miss that.  Kind of stinks, but that's life.  I do enjoy Ottawa and I just picked up some beautiful hand-woven wool gloves for someone on my Christmas list, so that's cool. 

So my suitcase has been packed and unpacked quite a bit lately.  My trip with the BF to New Hampshire and Boston was super fun.  His interview actually went really well and he'll find out if he is offered the job in the next few weeks.  Either way, it's a win-win situation.  The experience really opened his eyes and let him see the kind of work experience he deserves to have and will have one day.  If he does get it, then he has to figure out if moving to NH is in the life plan.  We'll see what happens.  The town we stayed at was very cute and a perfect winter holiday town.  The trees along main street sparkled with white lights and the shops and restaurants were all really cute.  We hit up a very fun mexican restaurant and enjoyed some delicious margaritas and other yummies.  Saturday we drove in to Boston and stayed at a great hotel in Copley Square.  We did the bus tour around the city and got on and off at quite a few stops.  Enjoyed some munchies and beer at the orginial Cheers bar and shopped some more.  Our dinner was at Atlantic Fish and it was AMAZING! We had their sangria, which was much different than any version we've had before.  It was strong and delicious!  We also had an amazing meal complete with freshly baked and warm bread, lobster, filet, blackened sea bass, asparagus, green beans, mashed potatoes and more.  Oh! We also had to wait until 9 p.m. for our dinner reservation, but we were hungry at 7 p.m.  So what did we do?  Only the best thing ever - peanut butter cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory for our appetizer! Delicious.  So it's to the hotel gym for me right now...because next week I leave for Florida with  my parents.  My sister is actually coming now too.  I never would have thought that would be happening.

Well have a good night and wish me luck for tomorrow morning!
