What a weekend. It was fun, tiring and a whirlwind of activity. I need a weekend to recover I think!
If I had to sum up my weekend, I’d say it was like 3 weekends in one. I feel like I had enough going on to fill three weekends – and it was great!
The weekend started Friday night, with a dinner date and comedy show. B and had tickets to a 9:30 show (late for 8 month pregnant me) to see one of our favorite comica, Sebastian Maniscalco. We started off with a late dinner at Cowell & Hubbard, splitting cheese and a few appetizers.
And then the show. We’ve seen Sebastian several times throughout the years at Hilarities, but he has gotten bigger now (he was even on Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee) and even though he was playing at a different, bigger venue, we almost didn’t get tickets in time!
Saturday morning started early with a 5 am alarm- B and I were headed to the airport to fly to Boston for the day to celebrate our anniversary! It was a great, but quick trip and we were able to get in a lot of walking (nearly 30,000 steps) and see many of our old favorite places (we met in Boston in college). From Beacon Hill to the Boston Common to the Public Gardens to Newbury Street to Faneuil Hall to Fenway to the Isabella Gardner Museum, I’d say we hit nearly everything.
We even got in a celebrity sighting- we were told we couldn’t post photos on social media but I did share info to my Snapchat story (@koskim). Here’s a hint- he was promoting Walhburgers and his name rhymes with Bark 🙂
We ended the day with a great Italian meal in the North End, complete with cannoli, tiramisu and coffee of course.
Sunday started early again- we had to fly back to Cleveland first thing, as I was emceeing a board event Sunday at lunch time. I’m the Vice President of the Phi Beta Kappa Association of Cleveland, and Sunday was our annual scholarship banquet. I had the pleasure of speaking and announcing the names of all the student award recipients. Brought me back to my days of high school awards events!
We finally made it home Sunday evening and I am so grateful for B who could tell I was pooped and volunteered to make dinner. I was so worn out that even after 3 nights out, he could have convinced me to order pizza….shh don’t tell him I said that!
And that was my weekend. Not relaxing in the least, but fun.
Some questions for you:
- Do you tend to have good or bad flight karma?
- Do you have a favorite comedian?
- Have you ever been to Boston?

I really like Brian Regan as a comedian, because he’s so clean, most of the time! I visited Boston a while ago with my family when I was about um… 8? It was awesome seeing all the history there.
Jeeze Louise, lady! You sure had a packed weekend, pregnant or not! Very cool about the barkybark sighting. My brother actually moved to Boston this year and I’m looking forward to heading out there some time to visit!
Enjoy your visit!! I LOVE Boston and it was such a fun weekend.
I’m tired from reading this! I usually fall asleep by 9:30 and I’m not pregnant! I have never been to Boston but love all the pictures from your fun trip. How exciting to be able to announce the names of the awards recipients. Thanks for linking with us Melissa!
Sounds like a fun wkend. Great pics! Those desserts look delicious!
Congrats again on your scholarship banquet!
Ohhhh I know! I know! And I’m so dang jealous of your celebrity sighting!
Your 3 in 1 weekend sounds like the routine I’ve been in the last few months! I’ve never been to a comedy club or seen a comedian, but we do have plans to go see a play this weekend so I’m looking forward to that. Oh and did you catch that? I’ll be staying home, it’s rare isn’t it? 🙂 Thanks for linking up with us. Not too much longer on the arrival right?!?
