Ohhhhhh! I just love a Monday when we’re combining three of my favorite things: traveling with my hubby, BOSTON and Michael Buble.
It’s the perfect trifecta!
So, for those of you who have been around here for awhile then you know, I adore Michael Buble. When we first moved to Detroit, I bought one of his albums and fifteen years later, he’s still my number one guy. Andrew and I have seen him many times in Dallas, but a few tours ago, decided it would be fun to start seeing him in other venues. First, we saw him in Vegas and then, in NYC. These last few years, he hasn’t toured because his little boy was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully now, he is doing well and Buble is back out there. When he announced the new tour dates, I immediately looked so we could pick a new city for a concert. Andrew and I decided that since we saw him in New York last time, it was only fitting that we see him in Boston (or about an hour outside of Boston) this time. BUT the sweetest and nicest part was that the day before tickets went on sale, Buble’s two sisters (who I’ve become friends with) surprised me and said that they were going to get me tickets instead. How sweet is that?! They were like name the venue and you have your tickets! So, we marked our calendars and have been anxiously awaiting this date since the fall.
I know this is going to be hard to believe, but this was the first time EVER that my parents have stayed at my house and watched my kids. Typically, when Andrew and I go somewhere, it’s the summer or over a long weekend and my kids go to my parents’ house, but this time, it was a school week, so my mom and dad moved in for 2½ days. MY KIDS HAD THE BEST TIME!!!!! Lovie and Papa Jay knocked it out of the ballpark! They handled school, homework, speech therapy, dance, baseball, tumbling, spirit night at the local burger place, carpool and more. AMAZING!! Why did I wait 10.5 years to do this? Next time, Andrew and I will be gone for a month 😉 .
Our flight left at 12:30, so we grabbed lunch inside the airport before we took off.
Sweet little Madeley adorned by Kindle with a heart sticker 🙂 .
We arrived at 5:30, grabbed a rental car and checked into our hotel. This was the view from our hotel room. Oh Boston, I love you so much!!
We had dinner reservations in the North End (their Little Italy) and were pumped to enjoy our pasta feast!
We had reservations at Carmelina’s and I HIGHLY recommend it! This restaurant was teeny tiny, and the food was delish!!!
I love this guy so much 🙂 .
His Chicken Picatta looked great, but my supper, WON…
It was the Sunday Macaroni and included three DELICIOUS meatballs, sausage and a short rib…with marscapone cheese on top. OH MY GOSH! It was so delicious!
After dinner, we walked right across the street for dessert…
Mike’s Pastry for the win!!
We went back to the hotel really full and super happy!
The next morning, we slept in, I did a little work and watched the local news while he hit the gym, then we got ready and stepped outside.
IT WAS SO WINDY!!
Hahaha! It was cold and windy, but the sun was shining and we had the best day!
…Joe’s 🙂 . I love Joe’s. We had the perfect seat where we could watch the people outside and enjoy our yummy food.
Feels like 10…with a lot of wind!
Best clam chowder. Ever.
This is like my perfect meal! Their fish sandwich is so darn tasty! I like mine grilled, and Andrew had his blackened.
Andrew had been to Boston before but never with me! After lunch, I showed him some of my favorite spots.
We stopped for Starbucks and then strolled my favorite street…Charles 🙂 .
After we walked around all afternoon, we decided to grab a snack before getting ready for the concert that night. We hit up Eataly…
Such a fun spot for a snack, right?!
And by snack, I mean this amazing meat and cheese board. Yes, ma’am!
We got ready and then left to drive to the concert which was outside of Boston in Worcester, MA.
We had dinner here at Craft before heading over to the concert.
So much fun! Our seats were amazing!
We grabbed a few pics before the show started. We were right next to the catwalk, so that made us super close to him.
Showtime! Look at all the phones! Ha!
I’ve said this every time I’ve seen him in concert, but he appears (and now that I know his sisters really well, I would imagine it’s the truth) extremely humbled and blessed that people are there. He’s funny, he’s quick witted and seems really sincere. He’s the quintessential entertainer.
I mean, how many pics of Michael Buble can I post today? Apparently, a bunch! Hahaha!
Just the most fun night!
While we were there, his assistant texted me and said she was coming to my seat. When she showed up, she had a big goodie bag filled with Buble swag including this gem…
…well, isn’t that so cool?!
After the show, we drove back to Boston and then returned home the next day in time to grab the kids from school. It was a quick trip…but so much fun! Andrew and I are already counting down to our next “adult only” trip this summer. It’s going to be EPIC! 😉
