If I hear one more person (myself included) say “It’s so hot”, I may spontaneously combust. Yes, yes it is. I’m hot, you’re hot, we are all hot. What does my family do? Heck, we head into the city where it is REALLY hot..because we’re bright like that. The real reason? I had a hair appointment (with the same wonderful stylist I’ve had for 14 years) and brought tweens and teens with me, also because I am mean. I thought…How bad could it be? Umm…pretty bad. We were all a little quiet and a little cranky by day’s end.

While I was getting my hair done, the girls wandered into Alex and Ani – their bracelets are a teen trend right now. It was so hot that they came back to the salon (Jerel @ 119) where I was still in process. So I sent them to the Roxy’s Gourmecapability mom at georgetown cupcaket Grilled Cheese food truck for lunch (it’s parked in front of the Boston Public Library). I ordered a straight up grilled cheese (just in a purist state of mind) but the menu is inspired. Next time I’ll have one with guacamole and also get the truffle fries. Yum. We inhaled our sandwiches in the salon, it was too hot to hit the pavement with a grilled cheese in hand and then headed to the newest cupcakery, Georgetown Cupcakes.

It’s a cute place but there aren’t many seating options so we were back on the hot, hot street. On the way back to the car we ducked into the always sweet Sugar Heaven. Who knew they had an ice cream shop in the basement? We cooled off there at the cute counter seats and then braved the heat once more. Next the shops at The Prudential Center – sure, they have nice stores but the air conditioning was our goal. We hung out in Barnes and Noble for a bit – love their book selection but always find the staff hard to, well, find. Once you locate one they are super nice and helpful, though.

A quick stop into Vera Bradley for some gift ideas…vera bradley at prudential capability momand back home to play cards and eat delicious cupcakes in our air conditioned family room.

  1. even with the raging heat it sounds like you guys had a great time. whether it’s hot or cold, the teens and i are usually a bit grumpy and quiet on our way home from the city. :-D
