498.3 Miles of Fun!!

Over the weekend one of my best friends came to visit!! Laura was only here for a few days but it was a blast!! On friday we went out with some of my friends from CT for Mexican food and Mexican Water...tequilla that is.

Saturday we drove to Boston! The city was great, all of the architecture was amazing, and the history was amazing. We walked around there all day. We did the freedom trail, saw the holocaust memorial (which was heart wrenching), went to boston common and walked around a bunch, had some food, did some shopping...basically the usual 'I haven't seen you in 2 months' stuff + some sight seeing.
Then we made our way to Rhode Island...We stayed in Middletown right near Newport, which was gorgeous! There was some really astonishing views of the ocean, and all of the cliffs. We didn't really do anything touristy there though. We were origianally planning on going to the Newport mansions on Sunday, but slept in and decided to go shopping on our way home. Saturday night however, we did experience Newport's 'great night-life'. We went out to a club called the Blue Rhino. It was really fun and we danced the night away!

Sunday we drove back to CT and stopped at several exits allong the way...we went to Mystic, and some other town that was supposed to have a starbucks, stopped at a mall...did some shopping, and the car talk was amazing! I swear if you want to know more about someone, drive with them for 500 miles! You will learn it all! (I love you still Laura!!)

But basically it was just a blast to see her and get to go out and dance, and shop with someone familliar! We used to see each other everyday, so a weekend wasn't enough, but it was a good fix! And there are pics to come!
