Alteryx Conference in Boston!

This month has just been absolutely crazy!!  So much going on between our move and future moves and lots of traveling!  

A couple weeks ago I got to go on my first ever work conference in Boston!
The Alteryx Inspire 15 conference was a blast!  Of course, in typical Shauna fashion, I ran into a sign and knocked it over the first few minutes of the first day!  #soclumsy
I was lucky enough to be able to go with one of my best friends, who works with me and also uses this specific software, Alteryx!

We didn't get a ton of time to explore the city, but we made sure to take advantage of every spare moment!
We stayed right on Copley Plaza in the Westin Copley Plaza and had this killer view of the Back Bay neighborhood!

The Boston Public Garden was just a few minutes away!  We went to ride the swan boats our first lunch break!

We also explored the public library:

Had time to meander through the North End:

Mini door!
Eat plenty of cannoli!!  Mmm!
I loved this local coffee shop, the Thinking Cup.  It had a literary flair and cute decor!

^  I tried chia pudding for the first time and was surprised how much I liked it!  Tastes a lot like jello!

We also had time to stop by the Mary Baker Eddy Library & Mapparium to see the walk through globe!  Super cool!
Pressed was delicious; we got the Copper and Zinc juices and I tried avocado toast for the first time! Interesting!

I also took a spa Popsicle with me to go!
Can you ever get over how gorgeous Boston is??? For crying out loud!
On our last night in Boston, we were able to go to a Redsox game at Fenway Park!!!!  I was so excited for this!!!!

Watching & participating in the 8th inning sing along to Sweet Caroline...epic!  The music at the game was top notch too!  
As much fun as the conference and Boston was, it's always so nice to be reunited with my husband and puppy!!  I has just a few hours at home before Tim and I joined back up with Alex to head to California!
But more on that next time!

In the meantime, visit our travels page here or here, or see the first time Tim and I went to Boston here!!  Boston has quickly become one of my favorite cities, and I was so glad to get to visit the beautiful area again this spring!  Can't wait to go back one day!
