Lazy Saturday Afternoon

6 Aug

Here’s a terrible picture to give you a better idea of the fun color.


Why do my fingers look so chubby?!  Please disregard the terrible paint job.  I’ve spent the afternoon catching up on some shows On Demand, and painting my fingers and toes, and the hub has been outside doing yard work on this incredibly humid day.  I feel a little bit guilty, but not enough to ruin my nails!

We did take a break to make a delish lunch.  We made a grilled pizza using wheat crust, homemade pesto, grilled shrimp, and monterey jack cheese.  Did I mention it was DEE-LISH? Do you see this cheesy goodness?


I have point and shoot, and a great DSLR camera, why do I continue to use my phone?

Time to pull myself together.  We’re heading up to Newburyport to meet up with some good friends for dinner and drinks.

28 Jul

July 27th, is not an easy day for me.  When I was 17 my grandmother passed away on July 27th.  Years later, we buried my grandfather.   It’s  a heavy day for me.  A day when I feel like I’m sort of in a bubble that’s filled with fog.   Yesterday, was July 27th.  I wouldn’t say I was in a bad mood, but I was certainly in a funk.

It was around 2:30, and I was counting down the final 90 minutes of the work day, when I noticed I had a text message.  I checked my phone and not only was there a text, but a picture attached.  The message was from one of my best friends in the whole world.  When I opened the pic, I started crying.  There, on the screen were 3 pregnancy test, clearly displaying PREGNANT.  I’m not sure I have ever been happier for someone in my entire life.  I sat at my desk, with tears streaming down my cheeks for a good 5 minutes.  I could not contain myself.  I felt nothing put pure joy, and excitement.  It’s still a secret, so I won’t share too much of the story… for now!

I’m sure next year, I’ll still have a heavy heart on July 27th, but I now also have this amazing memory, and I’m so thankful!
