Surprise (& cornhole)

Last Thursday I went out with an old friend for lunch and had so much fun catching up.  We talked about weddings, life in Mass, how our friends are doing, and had maybe a few too many brews for lunchtime.  Anyway, we came back and were hanging at my house waiting for Jay to get home.  Jay came in like everything was normal, taking off his shoes, talking about work, and then suddenly the doorbell rang.   I went to answer and it was TOMMMM!  I have been whining for him to visit since we moved and he told me he couldn’t come for months because of busy weekends, but there he was.  I was so excited I cried (seriously cried).   We ended up having such a great weekend together staying in our new town, enjoying the house, and even going to a cornhole tournament.  Tom, I love you bud, thanks for making me so happy and being such an amazing friend to both of us.

This weekend I have my best friend coming to visit!  I couldn’t be more excited to see her!!





Horrible at keeping up

I have been horrible at keeping this updated!  I thought when we moved I would have a ton of time to do nothing, but that couldn’t be less true.  Between visitors and the wedding, I’m busier than I was in Brooklyn.

(My first time to Fenway!  Spending time with the best girl on the planet, Jay’s God Daughter Grace, at her brother’s Christening.  Rondo and his new friend!)

(I ordered these matches, in my wedding colors, and was so excited when they came in the mail!)

(Jay found a turtle and we decided to keep her.  Turns out she is endangered in Mass and we are supposed to turn her in, but I don’t want to let her go!).

I have been trying new recipes and have a bunch I want to share.  Plus I have been doing a ton of wedding crafts that I will share too.  Just have to get myself on here and posting.
