26 Things | Month Two

I cannot believe that it’s already March. This year is already flying by! Here’s my progress for Month Two.


1. Write a novel.
2. Knit a scarf.
3. Create a family tree.

4. Cook through a cook book.
I have been cooking! I’m not exactly cooking through my cook book, but I’m making progress. Which you can read a little about here.

5. Visit 13 new restaurants in Boston.
6/13–since Franklin was here this past weekend I tried a few new places within the last few weeks.

On my birthday, a bunch of us went to brunch at BOMA. Morgan had made a reservation, and it was so nice to be able to walk in and not have to push our ways through the brunch crowds. This place didn’t start getting busy until we were getting ready to leave, so that was nice. The food was good, although everything seemed to have been cooked in duck fat. Not sure how I feel about that.

Saturday night Heidi, Erin, and I had dinner at Mela. I had very good chicken tikka masala, chai, and garlic naan. It was a tad bit expensive, but the chicken was quite tender. It was tendoori. Do you get my joke?

Dumpling Cafe
After celebrating Laura’s birthday, Megan, Brian, and I roamed the streets of Chinatown, tired and hungry. I’d been wanting to try this place for a while now, since I walk by it all the time, and I’m glad we did.


Some friends from our NG went and got brunch a few Sundays ago. Sunday brunches stress me out. There are always so many people and you never want to exclude anyone so you end up with a huge group for brunch with no place to seat you all. We walked in and they had all ten of us seated at the most perfect table very quickly, and then I got to eat the best chocolate chip pancakes I’ve had in a while.

Mike’s City Diner
This place is right down the street from my apartment. Franklin and I started our morning here for breakfast. Just your typical diner, so that was kind of nice.

Sweet Caroline’s
On Sunday Franklin and I took a tour of Fenway Park. I can’t wait for baseball season to start. I spotted this place from Fenway, and since it’s a nod to Neil Diamond’s song, which has made its way into Fenway Park when the Red Sox are in town, I wanted to try it. They serve Sam Adams Brick Red there, which can only be found in Boston, so that was good.

6. Take a photography class.
7. Take an acting class.
8. Read Les Miserables.
9. Use a sewing machine.
10. Do a Philippians bible study.
11. Organize my music.
12. Organize my pictures.
13. Organize my bookshelf.
14. Hang pictures in room.
15. Organize computer documents.
  1. Reach my savings goal.
    I’m at a little over 80%, so that’s good. It’s only March!
17. Fly a kite.
  1. Lose 26 pounds.
    I spent the last few weeks eating way too many french fries, so I’m still at 5/26 down.
19. Get new glasses.
I dropped my glasses on the ground on Friday, so now there’s a chip right in my line of view. More motivation to actually go and get new glasses!
20. Find a doctor in Boston.
21. Find a dentist in Boston.

22. Visit New York City.
23. See a broadway show in NYC.

24. Visit Washington DC.
25. Visit Philadelphia.

26. Go on a weekend trip alone.

And onward to month three I go.
