Boston!? Where to Go...What to Do

>> Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Boston people {who like sewing, baking, interior design, and cats}....are you there?

I need help!! {you can like dogs too}

Someone start a cute fabric store in the Back Bay/ South End area...please!
Stock Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Michael Miller....or better yet...
all the stuff on the JCaroline website.
You'll be a millionaire, well maybe not a millionaire, but I'll be your #1 customer.
I thought for sure there would be something like THIS around here. I actually had mentally planned a shop like this being a major part of my life in Boston. I saw a cute little vacant shop on Columbus today. The storefront is already painted purple. I'm telling you...big business! Snatch it up!

Have you read Friday Night Knitting Club? I imagine it like that, except sewing instead of knitting.
I tend to get a little wrapped up in my reading. I'm currently wishing Mr. Sabbe were a vampire.

I have a three year anniversary coming up next week.
Any best restaurants {with best prices} suggestions? Fun date ideas?

Church suggestions?
We would love to walk to church. We're in the Back Bay/ South End area.
Our last churches was non-denominational. We miss it.

and least for today
Anything else?
I read the Boston versions of Daily Candy and Apartment Therapy
{ps. can these people please invite me over for coffee! this house is amazing and thanks to my all day hunt for a Massachusetts drivers license, I'm very familiar with Chinatown}
A sweet friend bought us the NFT Boston Guidebook, but I'm positive there are millions and millions of best kept secrets out there that people are dying to share with this wee little southern transplant!!

Thanks in advance! My email address is over in the right column.

And big thanks to Lindsey over at Everything LEB for already extending some huge northern hospitality.

Aww you are so sweet, thanks for the shout out.

Let me do some thinking and I'll try and put together some fun things to do around here. Its funny, I always think how much I love Boston but then when people ask me places to go and see I totally go blank :)

Oh, and I'm sorry you had to deal with the DMV in Chinatown already- so not fun I'm sure

Oh I'm sure in now time it will feel like home. I'm sure it's still a big adjustments. My sisters went to college in Boston so I've made many trips throughout their years at BC.

One of my favorite restaurants in Boston is It's a yummy french bistro and very romantic.

The also have a restaurant called that I've always wanted to try.

Whenever we are on Newbury St we end up at They have an apple and brie appetizer that is delish!

Let me know if you need more restaurant recommendation, what type of food and price points. One of my sister's is quite the foodie and eat out a lot!

One of their favorite treats in Boston was they have a frozen yogurt that you get your toppings mixed in. Kinda like a McDonalds McFlurry and it's one of the things they miss most about Boston.

Sending hugs your way and hopefully fabric stores as well!

I am glad yall made it to Boston! We are moving next week. I can't wait to see pictures of your apartment. I bought material the other day to make shower curtains for our apartment. I am so ready to get settled. 6 weeks until the baby comes!
I am also glad to see you are reading Twilight! You see why I was so obsessed. Last summer I couldn't wait to get home from smocking to start reading Breaking Dawn! It is the best one!

Here's the churchplant that Sonia goes to. I think she's about to skip town for another country, but she claims there are plenty of southerners there to welcome you :) Not sure where it is in relation to your home...but it could be a place to start. Hope you're enjoying your adventure. I know you miss the Coushatta adventures terribly!!

We went to Boston a few years ago for HJ's work...we visited Park Street Church. I'm not sure that it's walking distance, but we liked it.
