Breen In Boston

Living life in Boston

Bruins Fever in Boston June 2, 2011

Filed under: My Life — Breen @ 12:49 am

Throughout the city there is an incredible excitement about the Bruins in the Stanley Cup.  There has been a plethora of people walking around in their Bruins gear and we saw flags and Bruins paraphernalia everywhere in the North End when we were there on Monday (Memorial Day).   One fan even created custom Jerseys for some of the statues in the Boston Public Garden.

One of my friends is getting married in September of this year. This past Memorial Day weekend, all the “college friends” got together to help her cross some items of her DIY list for her wedding.

Today, Scott and I celebrate our four year dating anniversary.

It was 4 years ago today that I met Scott at what has become “our bar”- Beer Works at Fenway.




Prague Vacation Remembered: Part 1 May 19, 2011

In March, Scott and I went on a vacation to Prague. This was a dream of ours and a shared goal from when we started dating nearly 4 years ago (it will be 4 years next Wednesday, May 25th!) We began saving for this trip in 2008. Then there was a wedding in San Diego in the Summer of 2009, so the Prague money went to pay for that trip. After that, we moved in December of 2009, wiping out our “apartment fund” and the rest of the “vacation fund.” We started saving again, and finally were able to go this past March. It was an incredible trip.



Commercials that make me cry May 10, 2011

The new Google Chrome commercials are great, and they make me cry.

This one especially:

Although this one make me tear up too:

(and yes, I may have teared up while re-watching these)

Do you have any emotional connections to commercials?

Thoughts out to Scott April 27, 2011

Filed under: My Life — Breen @ 4:01 pm

Scott’s father is having triple bypass surgery today. My thoughts are with him and his family in this difficult time.

Scott has been spending most weekends with his family for the past month- I miss him, of course, but am so glad he has been doing this. I cannot go because someone has to watch Youk (who does not get along well with other dogs there).

I am currently waiting for a phone call from Scott, which makes me nervous. I still have not heard from him.

This is why my blogging has slacked off lately.

Thoughts again to Scott and his family (especially his dad) today.

I will post with updates as I get them.

UPDATE: Just got word from Scott that his father’s surgery went well. Such good news!
