Sorry there’s been so little posted on the blog lately except Week in Review. I promise I’ll be posting some good content soon. Things have just been very busy lately. But that’s a good thing. We said goodbye to May this week. Hard to believe it’s summer! Where does the time go?
Sunday: Cape day! Did a whole lot of nothing. My usual run to Old Silver Beach. Bacon and eggs for breakfast on the deck (Rachel made some awesome eggs with goat cheese and chives — what a treat!). A little homework and a lot of time on the deck, drinking beers and reading Hunger Games. That’s right: I gave into peer pressure. But the book is so fun, I’m glad I did. Big family dinner: burgers with pimento cheese, baked potatoes, baked beans, and the first corn on the cob of the season.
Monday: Up early to head back to the city. Busy afternoon around the apartment doing laundry and getting ready for the work week. We indulged with two episodes of Mad Men. So good! Oh, but Joanie, why did you do it? And Roger, why didn’t you stop her?
Tuesday: First day at my new job! Exciting stuff!
Wednesday: Ken and I went to say goodbye to Forrest who is moving to California. We are very sad to see him go, but excited for his new adventure. Trips to the Brooklyn Flea won’t be the same without him. But hopefully we’ll see him in Vegas for his wedding in October.
Friday: Left work a little early to head to CT. Dinner with Ken’s folks. It was good to catch up over a big shrimp dinner. Early to bed. Pooped!
Saturday: Eric and Sara’s wedding day! The weather was terrible and Ken and I had a fraught time in the morning. After lots of traffic and car drama, we managed to make it to Eric and Sara’s wedding on time (barely). They had a lovely ceremony at the Johnson Chapel at Amherst. I think it’s the first wedding we’ve been do where their dog was the flower girl. And she was very well-behaved. They had a great reception at the Blue Heron Restaurant. Amazing food and great speeches. Mates of State was their wedding band (how cool is that) and we had way too much fun dancing. Just an overall really great night.
Have you seen the trailer for The Great Gatsby yet? I don’t really know what to think. It could be great or awful. But I kind of hate Toby Maguire.
I want to try a few of Mark Bittman’s cold soups.
I love this tablecloth. So bright and pretty!
Song of the Week:
It’s all about Mates of State this week. They put on such a fun show at Eric and Sara’s wedding. Ken and I were a couple of dancing fools and we certainly weren’t alone on the dance floor. For their first dance, the band played “Like U Crazy.” Enjoy!
