Several Firsts

It's no secret that I am a creature of habit and while I'm always up for doing things that push me outside my comfort zone I do think twice before trying something new whether it be a group fitness class (I'm going to a spin class next month if I don't do anything else!), new food or drink, or even new brands of clothing or shoes. This trip has included several firsts for me and I haven't even made it to California yet!

First ride on a ferry

First ride on a train (not including the one in the ATL airport)

First visit to downtown Boston


First cannoli

First watermelon beer (at Boston Beer Works)

First floor to ceiling painting I've ever seen and it was one of our favorites at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts

First Brazilian drink (it was gross but Allan drank it)
First time to run along a canal (Cape Cod Canal is beautiful!)

First time to see a historical landmark older than the Civil War era of our country
What are some firsts for you lately?
Is there something that you tried for the first time recently and you were immediately hooked?

  1. Pop those cherries girl!! haha sorry, that was probably inappropriate!!

    What was in your Brazilian cocktail? I had one during my spontaneous weekend in Waikiki, and while it was super gnarly, it was also a mixture of deliciousness, topped with coconut cream and cucumber for garnish!

    I'm so glad you've enjoyed your time in Boston!

  4. I went to Mike's Pastry when I did the marathon in 2010...it was my birthday on marathon day (cool, huh?? :)) and I bought a red velvet cupcake to take home to celebrate the marathon - and my birthday. Well, somewhere I lost the thing while sight seeing - whaaaaa! I still am sad over that, I didn't even take a bite. Guess I'll have to qualify and go back some day! :)

  5. That watermelon beer looks really tasty.

    My FIRSTS lately are food related, at least the ones that come quicky to mind!

    Glad you are enjoying your vacation.

  11. Wow, you are really checking them off the list! Where did you go that you tried a caipirina? It's too bad you didn't like it; they are sometimes good and sometimes not so good, depending on where you get it. Have fun on the rest of the trip!

  14. Zumba- I was nervous to shake my grove thang in a group setting but once I did, I was addicted! Such a fun way to get your sweat on!

    And if you do ever make that first trip to California, come to the Bay Area and we can go for you *first* run in San Francisco!
