Happy 2009!

We returned from our 1,100-mile+ road trip to the tri-state area, which seems to have become an annual event around Christmas! In any case, we visited 3 new babies, a very excited niece and nephew, my mom, dad, sis and bro-in-law, High Point State Park (that was just something we’ve wanted to do for awhile,…

Music Therapy

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been blogging lately. I’ve definitely had the blues and there’s a lot of crap going on right now that I don’t feel like broadcasting across the blogosphere. In fact, I think the past week was one of the worst weeks in my life (1). But I will say, last…

The dishes are done, dude

Crickets? Anyone else hear crickets around here? Sorry for my lack of blogging, but here’s a delayed recap of Thanksgiving weekend. The visit from MamaFashion and SILMeow included: Dare I say a delish meal?? Lots of Scrabble! A road trip to Vermont to visit MamaFashion’s old friends. Here we all are the Harpoon Brewery. Look…

Gratitude

My family always had a tradition to go around the table and say what we’re all thankful for. Figured I’d share with you all.J Yes, more gushing on him. He is truly my partner in crime and I’m amazed to have met someone who matches my personality so well. I can’t imagine life without him!FamilyBoth…

One more thing …

I blog as a way to procrastinate my writing assignments. Can you tell? So I just wanted to note some observations about the restaurants in N’awlins.*There’s far too much seafood on the menus.*They always bring you bread in a bag.*Three servers are assigned to each table–one for drinks (too bad I always order water), one…

Pop goes my ears

My ears tend to pop when I fly. Well, I feel like I’ve been flying everyday this week. Did I mention I’m back in the Bayou for business? Been here since Wednesday and leaving Sunday. Different hotel, different conference, different coworker. Anyways, I am staying on the 34th floor in this hotel and every time…

A picture of health

Since I’m surrounded by cardiologists this week, I decided to get a blood workup health assessment. J and I were just talking about how we probably should get our cholesterol tested since we don’t watch what we eat in terms of low-fat products (mayo, butter). Good news everyone. I passed with flying colors. My cholesterol,…

Catchy commercials

One of my many quirks is that I secretly love certain commercials. I mean, there are times when we’re watching TV and will mute through all the commercials, but sometimes I can be mesmerized by a silly commercial! Catchy jingles, funny story lines, I eat it up. For example, I don’t remember what phone company…

10:30 in the PM

What will you be doing at 10:30pm tonight? Probably getting ready for bed, or in bed sleeping already … Not us. Because the stupid people who make our soccer schedule have us playing a 52-minute game at 10:30pm!!! WTF? Crossing fingers that our whole team shows up because that would be some fine dedication. Not…

Celebrity Sighting

Raise your hand if you know who this is! Friday night (Halloween), we were eating at Limoncello in the North End (Boston) with MamaFashion, who was there on business. In walks Frankie Avalon to sit at the table next to us! Even though I knew of the name Frankie Avalon, I couldn’t really tell you…
