thanksgiving dinner

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Still full from Thanksgiving and an awesome dinner in the South End last night as we hosted friends from Philly, I only have the energy for a photo post that will bring back memories of last Thursday. My mom made mashed potatoes. We also had gravy and carrots and turnips. I put together a nice […]

It is the day before Thanksgiving and it seems timely that Complement Week at 20SB is huge and Jamie at oh! how lovely! included the blogging community in her list of things she loves about blogging.

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Three people drove to Philly together last Friday with three different comfort routes. Jenny likes to take 95 through the George Washington Bridge, I like the Tappan Zee Bridge to the Garden State Parkway and Mike likes to hit up route 1 in Jersey after 287 and onto 95.

eagles country

Friday, November 21st, 2008

Tucked way in the back of An Tua Nua in Boston each Sunday, in a private room during Football Season, a group of Philadelphia Eagles fans gather.

Build Boston and Greenbuild are are going on this week and between Mike attending Build Boston and my attempt to get in touch with the media a client attending Greenbuild, I thought I would dedicate this week’s roundup to, you guessed it, architecture. The focus of architecture stretched beyond these conferences this week, when a […]

travel gear tuesday: i’m on a flats kick

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Flats are an important part of traveling, in my humble opinion. While you are better off wearing sneakers or something that will actually support your feet for the longer adventures, if you are visiting a friend in another city and have more casual strolls planned (and also want to wear a cute outfit that actually […]

three thanksgivings

Monday, November 17th, 2008

CC at Fork in the Road had a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with her friends in Dallas this weekend. Coincidentally, I was doing the exact same thing here in Boston. And, I will be doing the exact same with again in Philly next weekend. And then, it will actually be Thanksgiving. What got me thinking was her […]
