When Eric and I got married I was mortified to find out that Eric had zero interest in vacations or exploring the world! I finally convinced him to go on a cruise for our 2nd anniversary (as in- I went to a travel agent and put half the money down and told Eric we were going!) Ever since then he has loved planning where we will go next! Last year we went on quite a few mini trips, and a week long trip to California, all with Mia in tow! We had soooo much fun and Mia was amazing to travel with! This year the travel bug has hit me hard and I'm ready to go!! But I must admit that it hasn't hit me any harder than in years past... oh how I hope we hit it big someday so that we can afford all of my traveling dreams, ha ha! But I digress.
This year Eric and I are planning to go on our own vacation, leaving Mia behind. This is the first time I've ever dreaded and yearned for a vacation all at the same time. I am so excited at the idea of getting out of town, exploring with my love and just spend quality time together.... but I die a little inside thinking of leaving Mia. I haven't spent a night away from her yet and that band aid really needs to be ripped off sooner than later (girls/bloggers weekend anyone?? Ha!) So we are hoping to plan the most amazing vacation ever so that we don't miss Mia to the point of pain and depression instead of enjoying ourselves (I know, I'm that totally obsessed, crazy momma)!
Is anyone dying to know where we are going?.... BOSTON! It's no secret that Eric is a huge Red Sox fan, so he's been itching to go watch a game at Fenway Park! We are also planning to spend a day in NYC which has been a dream of mine for like, ever! I still have a hard time believing that we are actually going, this year!!
BUT we would love some help planning this trip! What are the "must sees" in Boston?? Best places to eat?! We wouldn't mind traveling a bit to enjoy a beach day, which beach?! Tell me everything we need to know to have the best vacation EVER in Boston! Oh, and most importantly (to Eric, of course) how the heck do we get our hands on tickets seating us on the green monster? We can't seem to find them available online?! I think we've got New York City planned out... but if you had one day to spend there (especially since I'm a first timer) where would you insist I go, see, eat??
Thanks in advance for all the advice!! And someone, please tell me that it won't be so bad leaving Mia for a few days!?!
