What I’ve Been Up to – April

Spring flowers and other stuff: They had a bake sale at work to support the day care center – I bought more NASA meatball iced cookies and also these little rocket ship nutella pies! My pic for Jen’s virtual tiara party: Delicious Easter brunch at my sister-in-law’s. My favorite things are still the tiny sausages wrapped in bacon and baked … Continue Reading →

DC Cherry Blossoms

So way back in April, we decided to go check out the cherry blossoms in DC. We went on a Friday a day before peak – peak and nice weather were supposed to be over the weekend, but we knew it would be ridiculously crowded. So gray skies it was. The cherry blossoms were still pretty.

Francaise Dinner weekend – DC

So Megan, Jess and I went into DC after brunch. We hit the National Gallery to see Marie Antoinette, Natural History to see jewelry and also the evolution/human history exhibit since Megan is studying this in grad school, and then we met up at Paul’s (omg, the best quiche I’ve ever had) with Jenny-Rose, her sister, Amanda, Robin, Alice, and … Continue Reading →

Francaise Dinner weekend – Sunday brunch

Some of us met up for Sunday brunch in Alexandria. The place was super crowded but we were able to get a table for all of us. The food was amazing – but our waiter was slow and then we had weird problems with the check. It was not clear whether tip had been added in. And after all of … Continue Reading →

Francaise Dinner Weekend – Friday

Francaise dinner weekend was awesome! Let’s talk about dinner on Friday! A bunch of us met up and ate at the place right next to the hotel where many of the out-of-towners stayed. It was pricy, but the food was pretty good, and we all had a really fun time! I had lobster bisque – it was ok, but kind … Continue Reading →

Some winter leftovers…

I noticed that I missed uploading a few winter pictures, and there was one cute one of the Willow that I wanted to post, so here you go – a reminder that I’m really glad winter is over! Not my pic, obviously, but cute: Also not mine! Mmm – cinnamon buns on a snow day: Sunset: This is the one. … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up to – March

Here some pics from March! We had snow late into March this year, at the same time the crocuses were coming up… More in progress pics of our family room repaint. Lotta paint scraped. More crocuses: I finally got the hardback of Apollo’s Daughters in my hot little hands. This is the companion volume to the first Athena’s Daughters. John, … Continue Reading →

Disney Food and Wine recipes

Doug and  I have become big fans of Disney’s Food & Wine festival. They sell cookbooks with some of the recipes – and we’ve bought all of them – so we decided to try to get through as many of the recipes as we could. Many of them are out of our comfort zones, so we figured it’d be good. … Continue Reading →

Barenaked Ladies, Baltimore Arena, 2001

So here is something I never blogged about here because it happened a long time ago – and also all my pics are film. It was pre-digital and also I didn’t want my camera getting confiscated just in case, so I bought a point and shoot disposable camera. Worked out really well! And thank goodness I had a camera! Here … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up to – February, part 2 (plus some March)

I’ve been super busy and preoccupied this week and I feel behind (and frankly a little apathetic) on lots of things. But how about some pictures? This sums the recent internet up nicely. Not my art – credit is on the image. Also seen on the internets – a tiny hamster in a sweater. This was my favorite of the … Continue Reading →
