Ketchup Blog

I need to play catch up, or ketchup… wait til you see my burger photos, cuz my blog has fallen a bit behind. I attended the Ehlers Estate Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental. Check out my recap on the Boston Day Book! I spent ALL day on Tuesday doing laundry.  Then I spent Wednesday and [...]

Jared’s Favorite Holiday

Super Bowl Sunday: the holiest of holy days for a football fan.  Jared was psyched to host a party at our apartment so he could cook a ton of chili, buy a case of beer, and watch the big game surrounded by friends. Earlier on Sunday afternoon, I received a Direct Message on Twitter from [...]

The Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday I felt like I was kicking ass and taking names.  I crossed a bunch of things off of my To Do list.  I ran errands.  I took a spin class and went out to dinner with friends. Today was a completely different story… After running yesterday’s errands that forced me to crisscross my Boston [...]

Cozy Weekend

Nothing compares to the loungy-lazy feeling of a Saturday and Sunday. Since mid-week, the arch of my left foot was really sore.  I decided to take it easy and not do any major exercising all weekend.  I did some at-home workouts: push ups, crunches,  balance board, etc. I ate tons of leftover Maggiano’s after Thursday [...]

It’s my mom…  How could I [...]

On the Couch

I didn’t leave the apartment at all today.  It’s FRIGID outside and it’s only going to get colder.  What?!?! Jared said it was too cold for me to walk to the gym.  I wasn’t going to argue with him.  I stayed in our cozy apartment, watched TV, used my Balance Board during TV commercials, and [...]

Boston Food Bloggers Bash

I went to the Gallows last night for the Boston Food Bloggers Launch Party with Urbanspoon. There are so many food bloggers in Boston!  I met quite a few new people, and saw a few familiar faces.  Including my college adviser who is now a low-carb food blogger.  What a small world! SoCo Creamery was [...]

Snowfall and Pizza Pie

Yesterday it snowed.  A lot. I ate pizza.  A lot.  I had pizza for lunch and then leftovers for dinner! It was a good day! When I woke up yesterday morning, I wasn’t surprised to see snow on the ground.  The news had been forecasting the storm for days.  I spent my morning holed up [...]
