Weekend is here! Weekend is heeeeeeeeere!!!!!
i’ve crossed off 2 of my big peronsal to do list items today (finally)!! made our hotel reservations for the weekend of our friend’s upcoming wedding SCHEDULED THE DELIVERY OF BABY FURNITURE OMG. what a relief!!!
ok, i know the month isn’t all the way over yet, but it’s close enough and i have a busy day tomorrow so i will get this out now. i would like to formally and officially thank october for being awesome, bringing wonderful news, and just overall rocking my world. to recap, this amazing month included: passing my glucose tolerance test (finding out i do NOT have gestational diabetes) ...
he's got it pretty good, huh?
yesterday he gets a raise, and then last night he gets a call from his boss that he should bring his golf clubs to work today, so he can go play with the owner of the company, the president, and another executive. not a bad week for him, i’d say.
Cannot believe the hustle it took to make this train. House —> station in 8 min!! Amazing!! (And now the train is late. Awesome.)
I know we still need to stay on track w/ saving $, but when the husband gets a raise, you go out for dinner. Hey, I don’t make the rules!
Wouldn’t it be rad if going out for a celebratory dinner meant you could really go *anywhere*? Seriously craving Chicago deep dish right now
i feel like shouting from rooftops… even though that’s not exactly appropriate. but it must be acknowledged in some way - i am so so excited for greg b/c he got an extremely well-deserved and long-awaited raise today. i am SO proud of him. and, it must be said, i am also quite relieved for the status of our personal finances. this gives us some breathing room and maybe even an...
anthony bourdain, you know i love you boo, but i...
reallykatie: “How about hollandaise sauce? Not for me. Bacteria love hollandaise. And hollandaise, that delicate emulsion of egg yolks and clarified butter, must be held at room temperature not too hot nor too cold, lest it break when spooned over your poached eggs. Unfortunately, this lukewarm holding temperature is also the favorite environment for bacteria to copulate and reproduce in....
So about last night...
meredithnyc: joyengel: I had a few vodka gimlets. I texted a lot of people in NY, telling them to fly to SF right away. My coworkers toasted to my breasts. I unlocked the Julia Allison badge on Fourquare. I UNLOCKED THE JULIA ALLISON BADGE ON FOURSQUARE. I think I may need an intervention. texts from last night: joy: I’m spinning!!! me: ? um, as in at the gym? joy: the room!! ...
So, 50 days left. What should I run out and do that I can’t do after I’m a mom? Any suggestions? :-P
I’m at BiCE Ristorante (7 East 54th St, btw Madison and Fifth Avenues, New York). http://bit.ly/3m7i0V
Crap, the bedding we picked out is on serious back order. Might have to start looking all over again now?? Uuugghh.
In other news: holycrapbabymoving! How does she even have any room in there?? It seems like I can feel her *right* under my skin.
I had such a great time having dinner with my friend Sam tonight. We don’t see each other often but catching up is easy and so much fun.
I’m at Legends New York (6 W 33rd St, 5th Ave, New York). http://bit.ly/TLoRc
I just unlocked the “Explorer” badge on @foursquare! http://bit.ly/d86a9
Dinner with the folks to thank us for dog-sitting. They should probably have our carpets cleaned instead, but dinner will do. :-P
i love, cherish, treasure feeling my child move around inside me. it is simultaneously a wild, exciting, strange and yet comforting and instinctively natural sensation. except for when it just …HURTS. like today. (a lot.) i’ve been thinking a lot about how much longer i’ll work… and from the beginning i’d had it in my head that i was tough enough to work...
well i lied. i didn’t write any thank you notes at all yet. but i didn’t lie about the DVR *and* i did a decent amount of laundry. then i fell FAST asleep on the couch while greg worked* and then folded the last load. not very nice of me, since the unwritten rule in our house is that laundry is definitely my chore. woops. in my sleepy state when i said, “why am i sooo...
Just saw a girl eating soft serve waiting for the subway. Sure, it’s 10am, but really isn’t it just a little cold for ice cream?
An oatmeal raisin cookie for breakfast isn’t *all* bad, right?
Sundays when I realize I have no homework, papers, tests to stress over are when I love being an adult. (Dessert before dinner also helps.)
Home from an amazing weekend vacation. Catching up with the DVR and writing thank you notes. Fantastic!
Overhearing an exceedingly pretentious conversation at an inn in Salisbury, CT. Where are these people from?? Gahh!
(But otherwise having a completely lovely anniversary trip, even despite the naaaasty weather up here.)
Off on a family adventure! Last pre-baby trip!! Heading up to enjoy the foliage and a relaxing New England weekend at a b&b in CT. So happy!
We won some money!!! That was so much fun! Greg really knows what he’s talking about at the track. My sweet compulsive gambler husband :-P
goin to the racetracks for dave’s bday (@ The Meadowlands (Giants Stadium) in East Rutherford) http://bit.ly/pl3Fm
Dinner with husband and in-laws tonight in celebration of our 3rd wedding anniversary. Can’t believe it’s been THREE years already.

Eat Drink and Be Married
wow, neat! tomorrow is greg’s & my 3 year wedding anniversary! happy anniversary (almost)wedding twin! thecooknook: (exiting the church as husband and wife) Happy Anniversary to my Husband of three years. I can’t believe three years have already gone by. In this short span of time, we’ve managed to finish a graduate degree, live at the (arguably) most beautiful beach on the...
This is my formal apology to my fellow train passengers for eating a little tuna. I was just really, *really* hungry. It won’t happen again.
I am dyyying to get home tonight. My back is killing me and it usually isn’t this bad until later in the week. :-(
I’m really sleepy but I’m screwed if I fall asleep on this train. Trying to keep busy…
Skinny Maternity Jeans
well, obviously it’s totally personal preference but i actually found that towards the middle of pregnancy the low waistband started to be really uncomfortable. or the ones i had were just (too) tight, and they felt like they were pressing on a sensitive part of the belly. i think the full panel waistband doesn’t need to be quite as tight, b/c it stays up just fine from being all the...
Recovering from my joy hangover. Yknow that weirdly grumpy feeling you get after you’ve been happier than you could imagine being all day?
