What I’ve been up to… June/July

Other than Florida, I’m almost caught up with pictures. Here they are. I saw this posted and had to laugh, because of Matt Wiener being so tight-lipped about Man Men plots. This is what we’re reduced to: This is the cupcake flavor of the month for June – strawberry margarita:


What I’ve been up to… June/July part 2

Time for another picture post since things are quiet right now. Here’s me and Doug’s whole immediate family in Florida. I can’t believe how big all the kids are. We had a great time this year. Picture post on that will be forthcoming. Willow. ‘Sup. The day we got back from Florida, we went to Janine’s birthday party!


What I’ve Been Up To… May and part of June

Our garden is looking pretty good:


What I’ve Been Up To (April)

Here’s a bunch of pics, including a lot of spring flowers, cupcakes, and some pics of Willow. Here we go! Our crocuses started blooming pretty early this year and we had a lot of them. I love crocuses.


What I’ve been up to… March

So I have a few photos from the last few months – the big thing, as I mentioned before was all the work my band did to finish our first album, which came out Feb 1st. I’m still really excited about it – and thank you again to those of you who have supported us and said nice things. It … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to… (Christmas stuff, New Year’s, Willow, a concert, fabric)

The view from the Millard E. Tidings bridge in MD. It’s exactly an hour from home. I mentioned a while ago that people down the hall from us at work were decorating their doors for Christmas. These people did a 3D snowman out of styrofoam cups. It was really really cool.


Christmas at the Office and Shopping in DC

So in my last post where I told how we stole Alex and Joe’s full-sized office Christmas tree (and they didn’t notice for 3 hours), I mentioned (I think) that Alex replaced the tree with a large branch. We draped lights on it. Very festive. The snowflakes on our door were made like 15 years ago, back when my office … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to… (Christmas tree shenanifans, Ballet West, astronauts, Nobel Laureates, etc)

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately. I always end up feeling Grinch-y about Christmas cards because they take a lot of work. And lately I’ve been getting a ton of photo cards. I thought it was a nice idea and I guess it can be optional to write something on the back. So that’s what I decided to do … Continue Reading →


Busy but awesome weekend

We had a bunch of people in town this weekend for a couple of different races. Our friends John and Beth were here to do the Run For Your Lives zombie 5k obstacle course with Doug, and our friend Conley was in town to run her first marathon – the Marine Corps Marathon. John and Beth came Friday night and … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to… (cats, snakes, flowers, a butterfly, work stuff, and more!)

I got one shot of this yellow butterfly on one of the dahlias. I haven’t seen this type of butterfly in the garden before. I love this pic of Willow. She made herself right at home on a Macy’s box with Doug’s birthday present from his parents in it.


Photo post (Willow, American Girl, flowers, work stuff, etc)

Can you tell I’m trying to catch up on photos tonight? Here’s what I’ve been up to in July and August (except Poland which I already blogged about!) We finally got some rain, so my dahlias finally started blooming well.


The Eastern State Penitentiary

The Bastille Day event we went to on the 14th was held at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia – a few of us did wander around it and I took a bunch of photos that I didn’t post with the costume ones. It’s quite run down and spooky. It’s no longer used, but when it was, the prisoners was … Continue Reading →
