ShareA couple weeks ago I went to my doctor for a standard glucose tolerance test, which checks for gestational diabetes. Feeling lighthearted and utterly cocky, I had a late night snack of two mini-Snickers bars, the last vestiges of our Halloween stash, less than 9 hours before I was to get my blood taken. Big […]

ShareLike many Americans, I spent the morning in awe of the British royals.  Everyone loves a wedding, and no one does pomp better than the Brits. As it so happens, I’m working in the kitchen this morning on a bridesmaids luncheon I’m catering this afternoon. So it’s all wedding, all the time around here. As […]

ShareLast night we had our first snowfall in the new ‘hood.  Hubster was out at a work dinner, but he got home just in time to head out for a nighttime walk in the snow. We live on a street of older homes, an area where you can look out your window and see your […]

ShareThe weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are undoubtedly my favorite time of the year. Sadly, I’ve felt some trepidation about the holidays this year, as this same time last year I was pregnant and buying little baby ornaments for our tree. Any of my loyal readers know how that worked out, four days before Christmas […]

ShareThis is our first Halloween in a “real” neighborhood and the hubster and I feel like kids again. We’re both October babies, so fall and Halloween seem so much a part of who we are. But I think the real reason we’re excited is that, for the first time in our marriage, we’re expecting a […]

ShareFirst, I want to thank you all for such incredible feedback from my post on Monday. I feel so lucky to have the support of such a dynamic group of readers. I have to admit, pressing that “publish” button Monday night was quite nerve-wracking; I had no idea how my over-share would be received and […]

ShareSo here I am, back from my longest blog-hiatus ever. Sitting here, realizing that it’s been a month to the day since my last post, I feel nothing short of embarrassed. I’m not even sure if anyone will still be reading this.  I wouldn’t blame you if you’ve strayed to greener pastures, or tastier blogs. […]

ShareThe result of my weeding and “landscaping” adventures last week was a case of seriously disgusting poison ivy. I’ve been nursing it all week. Basically I feel like something out of a horror film (hubster thinks I’m being dramatic.  Me? Dramatic? I can’t tell you how much it wounds me to hear you say that).  […]

ShareEvery summer I await the return of the peach.  It’s by far my favorite summer fruit.  Fragrant, fuzzy, flavorful. Every time I bite into one I’m reminded of summers as a kid, eating peaches and plums on the beach and having to lean over just a bit to make sure the juice didn’t run all […]

ShareLast Sunday night, the hubster and I had a rare treat: we were invited on friend’s boat for a cocktail cruise, complete with picnic dinner.  We were so excited; it was the highlight of our weekend plans. I’m kind of in awe of the fact that we live so close to the water.  I’m a […]
