If you're looking for beautiful scenery, Cape Cod is it! From lighthouses to quintessential cedar plank homes, this place is gorgeous. I had forgotten pretty little towns exist because I live in

Providence Town is full of gay couples, fabulous shopping, little dogs, great food and babies in strollers. Do you know what I LOVE? Gay couples, little dogs, GREAT shopping/food and babies. I mean, it doesn't get better than that combo, does it?! We cleaned up getting souvenirs for everyone in this town at the end of the Cape. I could have spent the entire weekend in this town!

After I wrote this post on the driving situation in Dallas, I was "warned" that Boston was worse. Well friends, I'm here to tell you, fear not if driving in Boston! Sure, there were some aggressive drivers. But they had SKILL. In Dallas, they're aggressive, minus the skill and in an over-sized 3 ton truck that can (and will) kill you to boot. Yup, Dallas still reigns as city with the worst drivers!
If you go out to eat and a lobster roll is on the menu, do yourself a solid and order it. Even if that's what you've had to eat the last three meals straight. I nearly OD'd on lobster. Baby Otto-in-utereo was like, dang mom, that's enough lobster.

And then I mixed it up with a bagel, and I remembered why people think bagels are delicious. New Englanders and bagels FTW y'all! I almost wish I could get this in Texas, but I'd seriously weigh an additional 20 pounds so I suppose it's cool that I have to go to the east coast for bagels this scrumptious.

While talking about all the delicious food, you know what WASN'T delicious? Dunkin Donuts coffee. We were on our way back to Boston and stopped several times trying to find a decent cup of joe (every place wanted to add the cream and sugar for me - word of the wise: DO NOT TOUCH A PREGNANT WOMAN'S COFFEE I WILL DO IT MYSELF I ONLY GET ONE PER DAY AND IT HAS TO BE PERFECT). I finally thought, "DD's are everywhere! Let's stop and see if I can get a good cup there!" So hubs pulled over. And it was the worst thing I've ever tasted. Go ahead and skip that Massachusetts staple friends. Just drive on by and don't look back.
|Everything about Dunkin Donuts was a let down. Don't do it guys, don't do it.|
Finally, who knows how to spell Massachusetts off the top of their head?! I had to look it up before writing this post! Pregnancy brain? Dumb blonde moment? Or average struggling-to-spell American?!
If you ever get the chance to spend some time out on Cape Cod, know that it's absolutely beautiful! All of Massachusetts was, in fact, including the friendly drivers of Boston. Thanks for the lovely trip, cool weather and awesome sights, Massachusetts!
