My Little Baby Is Growing Up! ::meep::

This weekend I got to hold a new baby (weeks old people, weeks old!) and finally had my son’s first hair cut finished (so it took us over a month, we got there). So right now I am gazing at my son and his cute little lack of hair and marveling at how much older he looks, while dreaming about newborns and recalling the earliest … Continue reading My Little Baby Is Growing Up! ::meep::

I'm Dreaming of the White Mountains…

So when dh and I decided not to vacation this year the biggest surrounding reason was due to “certain things” we were saving money for.

I’m not normally a flower person – I don’t necessarily like the idea of giving someone flowers which inevitably die – especially if they would have lived in the ground otherwise.

Sesame Place – located in Pennsylvania, though a bit expensive this … Continue reading Top 10 Imaginary Family Vacations

Oh The Thinks You Can Think: Seussical: The Musical

Yesterday, as most of you know, was Father’s Day. You may not know that it was also the day of the final performance of Central Mass OnStage‘s production of Seussical: The Musical. And all of this is relevant because, for me, it was also my first time seeing my father perform on stage – talk about a Father’s Day treat! My father and I have … Continue reading Oh The Thinks You Can Think: Seussical: The Musical

Favorite Moments from Father’s Day Weekend

This weekend was a large, hectic, busy blur that left me more exhausted than the Friday I woke up to it. It began with a long overdue date night in which my husband and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie and ended with me snuggled on the comfiest chair in the apartment watching the latest disc of Bones that we received via … Continue reading Favorite Moments from Father’s Day Weekend
