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…

Happy Halloweenie!

Just wanted to share some pictures from J’s Haunted House that his Rec Dept. hosted for the town last Sunday. This is one of his BIG events. When I say big, I mean planning starts in July. This year had an alien theme. It was a success and couldn’t be complete without …A homemade spaceship…

Business Tripping

The next few weeks will be dotted with nothing but business trips for both J and I. Tomorrow I head to the great city of Boston (that was meant to have some sarcasm) to cover a conference on pediatrics. I’m not happy that my trip to Beantown once again coincides with the baseball craziness, as…

J has a protege

Oooh, that rhymed. Well anyways, J’s childhood friend, theBuddha, had a baby yesterday. On J’s bday (remember?). We’re still in shock by this, but, his friend and girlfriend decided to carry on J’s name since the little guy was born on the 6th. So I present to you Cody Justin, all 8 lbs, 9 oz…

Someone is getting older …

***total cheese warning. Stop reading if you don’t do mushy.***Today is a big day. Today is J’s 32nd anniversary of his birthday. I can never really match his birthday planning awesomeness (e.g. my surprise 30th bday party), but I did try this weekend and will continue today. Everything tonight will be topped off with a…

Leaf Peepin’

We became leaf peepers this weekend, the term New Englanders use for those who swarm to the Northeast during the fall. We hiked Mt. Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, the lowest of the 4,000-footers in the state. There are 48 on the official list to enter the higherpointer club in NH; this made 8 for us.…

Off to Dville

Do you think we could have picked a better weekend to fly down to North Cackalacki? I mean, there’s only two hurricanes/tropical storms going on along the Eastern seaboard right now. So who wants to take bets on how delayed we will be tonight when we fly out and how delayed we will be when…

Go farmers!

J is one my most faithful readers of the blog and he has been asking me to do my post on Farm Aid ever since we got home at 3am Sunday morning. So here goes. Farmers are outstanding in their field. No really, people, they are. So support them. (PS SILAdventure, I got about 8…

7 years

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since the Sept. 11 attacks. I was living in Phoenix at the time and getting ready for work. SmokinHotRoommate came out of her room and said we needed to turn on the TV because a plane just hit a building in NYC. What? What a freakish accident, I…
