my sunday was irish

Monday, May 18th, 2009

It all began with brunch at the Druid, one of Boston’s most authentic Irish pubs, in my opinion. Mike and I decided to try their Irish Breakfast, which includes sausage, ham, white and black pudding, eggs, potatoes, beans and a tomato. [Irish Breakfast at the Druid] In between episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia […]

i’m being sent to gloucester

Friday, May 15th, 2009

…by Trazzler. Specifically, to grab a lobster roll at Charlie’s Place. That doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Mike and I go up to Gloucester, MA every year for our anniversary. But, this September we are looking to plan a bigger trip. I am hoping this weekend gives me a chance to catch up with […]

it’s time to plan a summer vacation

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

I have been too focused on planning my days off from work around weddings throughout the rest of the year to realize that we are are only getting closer to Memorial Day and summer is just around the corner. Luckily, I have had some helpful people keep me in the loop when it comes to […]

martha’s vineyard

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Martha’s Vineyard is an island off the coast of Massachusetts, south of Cape Cod to be exact. It is most commonly known to be a place where affluent individuals and families “summer,” and I do mean that as a verb. Despite the yuppie stigma, it is definitely a place for anyone to enjoy- even if […]

This weekend we celebrated Mike’s birthday out in the burbs- his mom made a delicious chicken parm dinner with an unbelievable mocha torte for dessert. She also let us know that she just made plans to fly out to Arizona again to visit her sister and that her flight was just a little over $200 […]

my ode to cinco de mayo

Monday, May 4th, 2009

He estado tratando de aprender español desde el septiembre pasado. Comencé a estudiar antes que mi viaje a El Salvador para visitar Sue. Durante mi viaje gocé hablar con los locals tanto que quise continuar aprender, tan escucho el Método de Pimsleur CD en mi coche cuando conduzco al trabajo todo los días. Traducción/Translation… I […]
