Can’t believe in only a handful of weeks till I meet my baby !
Boston you are beautiful! When we first got here we tried staying at the Kimpton Nine Zero but I was not vibing. I can read energies and it was so dark and dreary I needed a new scene. So we headed to the Marriott Long Wharf where we were surrounded by water and boats, overall just a way happier feeling.
Right now I am watching Fever Pitch and it has me wishing we had made it to a Red Sox game, but we didn’t have enough time. I also would have like to have gone to Salem, especially this time of year with Halloween in the air. The night we had planned it, it rained so we walked around visited Paul Revere ate a romantic dinner and got serenaded by a violinist on a park swing. It was perfect and exactly what we needed.
The next day we hit the ground running🏃♀️ – I regret 2 things:
- syrup, I had syrup on my french toast and I got a huge headache, not a great way to start the day full of sight-seeing this only happens when I eat syrup and ONLY while I’m pregnant
- shoes, I should have worn sneakers but never fear the UGG store sandal slippers saved my legs and were perfect to wear to the airport later that night
We only had a little time in Boston but we were able to walk the entire Freedom Trail and we ate lots! of yummy food.
I cant wait to come back! Next time I bring the kids. It’d be amazing for them to see and learn about history and absorb all the info like little sponges. It’d benefit them the rest of their lives. Like the time we took Hudson to Washington DC before he was two he came back reciting the entire Pledge of Allegiance my memory. Think what they could learn in a couple days in Boston 🙂

welcome to Harvard 🤓
I’m so excited to be here + now I can tell my kids I “went” here 🤫 jk
It’s not very often you walk into a place and instantly respect everyone in it. The students I was surrounded by are SMART! And I was honored to be there (even as just a tourist)
Legally Blonde/Elle Woods may just be my Harvard inspo
At the risk of sounding CHEESY! Its TRUE
Heres some funny facts:
- She spoke at graduation so naturally I had to too : I wanted to use her speech but that was nixed
- When I met Dallin I was wearing a pink sequins bikini (she had a green and pink one)
- I got the Tiffany’s chain heart necklace and bracelet like her in college
- I dressed up like a bunny in a swimsuit, ears, for Halloween in college, like her
- we both “went” to Harvard – her fictional character actually went and graduated I just went and toured it – same difference right lol
Anyways it was a fun day and a must see.
Next stop, Boston!
Leaving Nantucket with the promise to come back with our children 🙂 It was really such a dreamy location and vacation.

“Sailors Delight”- photos taken + captioned by @dallinnj 😅🤣 while we were laughing of course ☺️ – husband Take over – Couldn’t imagine my life w/o Shannon. When I met her I never wanted to let her go. She’s Witty, spontaneous ,extremely smart and charming. She is always unforgivably herself. A great mom and even better lover and the woman I adore! Here’s to number 10 and a life time of anniversaries.
Had the Mr. take over the gram for a minute. I always love PDA & hearing from him. He doesn’t gram much and he’s a lot more private then I am so it was a fun one for me on our 10 year anniversary.
I love the line where he says “When I met her I never wanted to let her go”. If you know our dating history I would never have guessed this. He told me, all be it known to me at the time. That he was actually scared of me. Go Figure. He also said he was soo set in his ways he needed time to change and to make sure I was “the one” and if he could commit to just one – Valid! The world could use more Dallins- I am selfish for keeping him all too myself lol 😂 jk 😝 We dated through the seasons, and then we dated through another 2 seasons before he admitted out loud he loved me. But once he did it was game on! And it happened fast! We were engaged weeks after that and married weeks after we were engaged. When you know you know.
If you ever get a chance to come to Nantucket make sure you visit here. It’s beautiful and peaceful!
