Another Rock Band day

We slept in this morning, which was nice.  I think we were finally up at around 9 AM.  Kelly made waffles, with the waffle-maker we received from AJ and Denisse.  After breakfast, I went to the concierge to collect the package we received yesterday.  I turned out to be the stroller that Jason and Logan got for […]

Shopping day

We were up at 8 AM and on our way to Tyson’s Corner by about 9 AM.  We wanted to get to the mall before things got crowded.  Indeed, when we got there, things were not bad at all.  We had to stop in a few stores to do some holiday shopping (I can’t reveal those […]

Halloween and Taco Salad

Halloween today, but unlike last year, there was no dressing up or Halloween parties this year.  There was work, and then after work, I headed home and started preparing dinner.  AJ and Denisse came over around 7 PM and I made a taco salad using one of strausmouse’s recipes.  I think it came out pretty good, even though I made […]

There will come soft rains

Hannah hit Saturday early afternoon with lots of rain and wind, but not much of anything else.  It was a lazy day for us.  We didn’t sleep in late, but we took a lengthy nap in the middle of the day.  It was pleasant listening to the rain pound on the roof and wind whip […]


We spend Saturday morning around the house. I lazed around a bit, listening to some jazz on the excellent iPod speaker system that strausmouse got me for my birthday. Kelly was productive around the house as usual. More productive than I. We did head over to Macy’s to pick up the bridesmaids dresses, which had […]

Cleaning day

Today is Kelly’s first day at her new job! We drove to Pentagon City together this morning; Kelly got on the Metro and I headed up to the office. I’ve been cleaning this morning. Friday (August 1) was the first day of my 7th year in the Washington office, and this morning, I decided I […]

Productive Saturday

We had dinner with AJ and Denisse last night at Bertucci’s and it was a lot of fun seeing them and hanging out with them for a while. Also, our “Save the Date” post cards arrived, and they look great! They were made by he11o_sunshine over at Buttercream Cards and we love them! This had […]

Friday evening

Kelly met me after work Friday at the Pentagon City Mall. We headed over to Champs to have a beer with Todd. We then had some errands to run before meeting AJ and Denisse for dinner. We decided to go over to Lebanese Taverna for dinner, and we ended up having a great meal. We […]

Rainbow Room Birthday Bash 2008

Saturday began early for I was anxious to see everyone and wanted to get an early start. Kelly and I had gone to bed around midnight and I was up at 6:40 AM. I showered and then headed downstairs to sit on the couch and read until everyone else woke up. Kelly was up early […]

Peruvian meals and mundane work

Kelly and I headed over to Denisse and AJ’s last night where we gathered with some of their other friends for a Peruvian dinner that Denisse prepared. I can’t remember the name of the dish, but it was terrific! Lots of mojitos and beer, as well as snacks and desserts. Good company, too. We got […]

Rumors of my near photographic memory are, in fact, true

Yesterday, we spent the afternoon with AJ and Denisse. We went into Georgetown for a late lunch at an Indian food place. In fact, we got in just before they closed the kitchen, but the food was outstanding. We lingered over the meal for a while and the folks in the restaurant were patient, but […]

Breakfast, anyone?

Although we went to bed really late, we were up by 9 AM and almost my first act of the New Year was to cook everyone breakfast. That’s right: I made breakfast. I used the new Black and Decker grill-thing that he11o_sunshine and stubiebrother got me for the holidays to make pancakes. I also made […]
