Weaver Photo Shoot

I took tons of photos with Curt, Katie and Ev when we were camping a few weeks ago. I created some storyboards that I think they'll like. Wanted to share!

I love blogging, but...

it takes up a lot of time. I have enjoyed posting my adventures over the past couple of years, but I think it is time for a break. I am planning to start regularly uploading my photos to a new site to be determined, so stay tuned! It will be sans narrative but hopefully they will still be enjoyed. And I will try to keep up with my tumblr page at Sometime in the future, my schedule will permit me to blog again, I'm sure of it. Thanks for reading!

Brooklyn Concert

A couple weeks ago, Chris had a surprise for me that he told me about for TWO WEEKS before I could find out what it was! I had an envelope that said "Do not open until 7/31" just SITTING there where it drove me crazy every day! Well, when I finally got to open it on 7/31, I was really excited to discover 2 tickets to a concert by a band we both really like, Cat Empire!

We headed out to Brooklyn a little early to explore a little bit. One of the first things we saw was a beer bar - and who can resist a beer bar??

I thought this was pretty cool - the tree is giving the bike rack a hug.

I also wanted to check out a wine bar that was very close to the venue. The setting was very nice...

the wine tasted good...

and so did the salad. (We had cheese too, but I guess it disappeared before I could get a photo!)

But we were disappointed in the service, and probably won't go back.

The concert was so much fun!

We had a great night. Thank you to Chris for such a fun surprise!

English Muffins

You can make those at home??

Who knew. We got a new bread machine a few weeks ago, and Chris started talking about how he wanted to make english muffins. Well, he did, and they turned out delicious!!

The next thing we had to do was make eggs benedict at home. I've never especially liked eggs benedict but we put them together using a recipe from one of my favorite websites, The Pioneer Woman. It was my first time poaching eggs,

my first time making hollandaise - and somehow it came out yummy!

Come over to our place for breakfast and we'll whip you up a batch :)

Mom and Gramee, part 2

The next thing they did, which I think may have been most exciting for mom and gramee... they got to watch Regis and Kelly tape a show!

Actually, apparently they taped 3 shows, so they got to see a lot of people. Julianne Moore, Jersey Shore people, Nicholas Cage, and more.

It sounds like a lot of fun!

Doesn't it look like Gramee is making her big entrance here?

I didn't get to go since I had to work. Boo hoo. But I got to hear all about it. And we did lots of other fun things that I somehow don't have many pictures of - ate at delicious restaurants, made milkshakes at home with ice cream from a local dairy, shopped at Macy's... it was a great visit and I'm so glad they came out to see us.
