Thank you Red Sox!

What a weekend of Sports here in New England!

Our weekend started out with a nice dinner with Music Guy's family at Figs. If you live in the area and have never been I suggest you make a reservation there soon. The Charlestown location is the original and slightly larger then their Beacon Hill location, but both are pretty tiny but worth the wait!

The rest of the weekend I laid low and rested my foot, which by the way is getting better. It's funny how staying off of it really helps the healing process. The Sox games were unbelievable, Red Sox Nation is one happy bunch today! Or as Fox likes to call us just "The Nation", very fitting! Bring on Rolling Rally II!

The Sox played in 14 playoff games times that by 4 hours per game = 56 hours of playoff emotion in the month of October. If you really want to get into the numbers us Sox fans have devoted this season they played a total of 176 games many of which went into extra innings and rain delays. Keeping up with the same numbers that would be 704 hours of Sox baseball from April to October! No I didn't watch every game but did know what was going on during most of ones I was not able to watch. We do love that dirty water!!!

All I really need to say about the Pats is you can "run up" the score any day in my book. If the NFL(teams and coaches) is going to say you only won THREE Super Bowls by cheating then what can you say about 52-7 and the fact they have not scored less then 34 points all season oh yeah and haven't lost! thankyouverymuch.....

I had an extremely intense meeting first thing this morning (perfect timing after going to bed on the latter side of 1am) and the week seems equally as insane. But hey we're World Champs! And my boy Mikey Lowell is the MVP! (I would post a link but it's taken too long on the Boston Newspapers sites, a lot of work getting done today it seems!)

Another positive about a crazy Monday is I'm wearing pink and an argyle sweater!

Oh, you lucky Red Sox fans. Congrats & enjoy.

I love Figs! When I lived back east, my (ex)sister-in-law and I would have lunch at Figs and a cheapy mani/pedi at Lauren's nails on Charles Street and lots of shopping. Fun, fun.

I know Laurne's pretty well! Great mani/pedi for only $35!

Look at you and your advanced math- you can handle my bank accounts any day!

I thought of you when they announced Lowell as MVP, I knew you must be feeling so proud of your boy!

I am so exhausted after watching our Boys become Champions, I actually thought about having a coffee for the first time ever. It feels sooo good though.

Ha I just got a mani at Lauren's last week (the one on Newbury though). And I am sorry but in the NFL you cannot cry about "running up the score" and not sound like a complete d-bag.

You know what I mean but I thought I should keep it clean unlike my own blog :)

I can't believe the season is actually over!

I LOVE Figs. Do they still have the challa bread pudding at the one in Charlestown?
