Memorial Day Grilling

A long weekend is the perfect excuse for a last minute BBQ.  On Sunday afternoon, Jared invited our friends over for some grilling action.  I was forced to neaten up the apartment at high speed.  Cardio cleaning! Jared and Jesse hit the grocery store and came back with TONS of food. The guys bought ingredients [...]

The Old Ball Game

There’s no better way to spend a Saturday than out at the old ball game. My Saturday started off slow.  I didn’t take a photo of breakfast so that means I probably just ate cereal. After errands and getting stuff done around the house, it was time for lunch.  I enjoyed a Watermelon Lemonade. I [...]

Graduation Celebration

Congratulations Brandon! Jared and I spent Friday night at Matt and Natalie‘s house, celebrating Matt’s brother Brandon’s graduation from law school.  As Matt kindly put it, he’s 94% of the way done.  Still needs to pass the bar! Jared kicked off the weekend celebration as soon as he got home from work.  I stuck to [...]

Joe V’s

On Thursday night after the wine tasting, a small group of us went out to dinner at Joe V’s.  I loved the sock monkey on the menu! I ordered the goat cheese, fig, pear, and arugula pizza.  I thought it was a little bit bland.  I made up for my disappointment by stealing bite’s of [...]

Boston Wine Exchange

On Thursday night, I attended Meghan and Michelle‘s wine tasting event at Boston Wine Exchange. Complete with cupcakes, Cabot cheese, wine, and bloggers, I think the event was a definite success! We sampled 8 wines, 4 whites and 4 reds.  I liked everything that I tried, but had some definite favorites that needed to come [...]

Crane Pose

Kate and Tina did a great job organizing Yoga Pose May. I was assigned the Crane Pose so I immediately headed to Yoga Journal for information. My Crane doesn’t look exactly like the model on Yoga Journal, but I think I came close. How to do the Crane Pose Squat down with your inner feet [...]

That’s the Way I Like It

Sometimes I like to eat breakfast for dinner. Delicious Blueberry Raspberry bran muffin. Sometimes I like to skip workouts and take a nap on the couch instead. Sometimes I like to go overboard taking photos of the dog instead of taking photos for the blog. And that’s the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like [...]

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Today is pretty much a repeat of yesterday.  It’s still HOT out, I had more job training, I ate the same foods. Last night Miles was acting like the King of Pride Rock.  He was perched on the deck, keeping an eye on what was going on in the house and in the yard.  He [...]

Tea for Two

I didn’t feel so hot when I woke up this morning.  I think it was just related to allergies because after a shower, I made a speedy recovery.  I had a bowl of Peanut Butter puffins for breakfast. I had a very short job training session this morning.  When I left Healthworks, it was HOT [...]

My Mad Hectic Life

As soon as I rolled out of bed yesterday morning, it was time to get to work.  Sunday was 100% dedicated to cleaning the yard.  (and watching Lost, but that wasn’t until later that night) Jared and I hauled 10 more bags of marble chips home to complete our pathway.  We began construction last weekend.  [...]
