In Pictures

            It has been a busy few weeks around here which partially explains my measly presence on the blog...my bad!  But to make up for it I have a little iphone photo dump for you.  Complete with puppies and sunsets and Christmas trees just in case you're in need of some cheering up on this chilly Tuesday night.  Because let's face it...there are not many blues that that triple threat can't chase away.  Am I right?  Thought so.

weekend getaway 

a chilly but gorgeous wedding in Georgia

catching up with some favorite friends to celebrate Leslie and Atticus

oh hey little Sadie

early morning at the park with my main man

a new girlfriend for Cooper

fox point for Thanksgiving

a little bay bridge sunrise heading back to reality

mini high school reunion...missed these clowns

And as much as I wave my holiday freak flag for the months of September, October, and November for all of their Fall goodness, you better believe that I can get down with Christmas too.

Merry merry sweet friends!

Pretty Much

Just squeeze in a trip to the dog park and you've got life around here these days.  Looking forward to a little break filled with sweet potatoes and sibling hugs and breakfast with sisterfriends on the Main Line.  Happy almost turkey day and safe travels to those of you hitting the road 
(or the air!) over the next few days!

            A half day of work, a diet of red wine and Halloween candy, lots of couch time, and a marathon of Breaking Bad are making this whole Sandy waiting game a lot more bearable.  Plus, at the moment we still have light and heat and water so we're knocking on wood and charging our iphones while we have the chance!

I think this guy could use a glass or two of that red wine...or a xanax.  Poor guy is stressed.

See ya soon, Sandy!

This was what the past week looked like around here...

            But not for long.  Hurricane Sandy is about to have her way with the district so in anticipation of a lengthy loss of power I thought I'd sneak in some pictures from a very fun Halloween party this weekend plus a little glimpse of what the nation's capital looks like in full on panic mode.

The ghost town that is the Glover Park Safeway

            At this point, I'm pretty sure I am the only person I know who doesn't have at least one day off as a result of the quickly approaching Frankenstorm but I'm trying to keep a positive attitude and not get too depressed that I'm missing all of the hurricane parties and snuggle fests that will be happening while I'm running around the hospital like a maniac.  At least I won't be in the dark and will have a place to charge my iphone?  It's the little things, people.

And now for a peek at Halloween part one...

Tutus and champagne...recipe for a good night.

 Can't wait for the real thing on Wednesday night when the Cooper-saurus can make his debut...

But in the meantime, stay safe and dry everybody!

Much Needed Weekend

             This weekend was needed badly.  The first week at my new job has been exciting but also utterly exhausting and I am so looking forward to not using my brain for the next 24 hours.  I am, however, looking forward to a gorgeous fall Saturday with temperatures just cool enough to require flannel and leaves that are looking more red and orange than green.  And now for some silly little things taking up space on my Pinterest boards as of late...


Happy Weekend!
