Hey It’s OK…

…to laugh out loud at a funny IM, email, text, etc. – at work, in a quiet area (oops)

Happy Friday! Tonight Colin and I get to babysit my wonderful nephew Declan (so if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll most likely see a picture…or ten…of my little guy). I’m so excited to just get some sushi, watch the Celts and hang out with my boys.

What are you up to this weekend? Hope you have a great time with whatever you do!

Hey, It’s OK…

…to freak out.

…to be very, very, very excited for Thanksgiving.

…to think the Kardashian Klan is kompletely krazy, but also secretly think they’re pretty damn smart (hey, they’re the ones getting paid to shop, chat, dress up and go out on the town — they ain’t sittin’ in a cube all day!)

…to have a light lunch so you feel okay about stuffing your face for dinner.

…to be sad that Regis is leaving — it’s the end of an era.

…to cry during holiday commercials (they’ll get ya!)

…to wish you could wear sweatpants to work some days (especially when it gets really cold!)

…to prefer reading physical books vs. reading them electronically (and vice versa).

 

I’m off to the North End for dinner tonight and Mohegan Sun tomorrow – woop woop! Hope everyone has a great weekend. :)

Hey, It’s OK…

… to have a quarter life crisis. We’ll get through it, people.

… to truly believe that your life will change when you buy a scratch ticket. “I wanna be a millionaire so friggin’ baaad”…

… to go for a harmless afternoon snack at the vending machine and literally want to eat everything in there.

… to pick and choose what you donate to. We all want to help, but we’re not all made of money.

… to be pissed that Modern Family didn’t have a new Halloween episode this year (I mean, come on – it’s Claire’s favorite holiday!)

… to give some dude you’re not interested in at the bar, the phone number 867-5309 (tell him your name is Jenny while you’re at it).

… to have a glass of wine (or two) on a Thursday night for the pure fact that you’re just so happy the next day is Friiiday!

… that your heart melts a little anytime you hear an accent – Southern, Irish, Australian…Vermont…? (Hey, I’m engaged to a Vermonter – what do you want from me?!)

… to be a 25 year old woman and not be ashamed that you’re extremely excited for the newest Twilight movie to come out.

… to expect each wish you make at 11:11 (AM and PM) to come true today. If not on 11/11/11 then when?

Happy Veterans Day and a special thanks to all our soldiers who have defended and will continue to defend our country – past, present and future. We owe so much to you!

Also Happy Friday and Happy 11/11/11 – have a great weekend. :)

A happy camper

Turns out, camping?…Not toooo shabby! In fact, it’s actually a damn good time! As a first time camper I was a bit hesitant. I was nervous about the bugs (mainly spiders), worried about not sleeping well, and with the forecast calling for lots of thunderstorms all weekend – definitely scared it was going to rain the whole time. But guess what? Bugs weren’t that bad, I slept better than I thought and we totally lucked out with the weather.

Turns out camping isn’t so much about the bugs and “not being in your own bed” situation, it’s more about having fun with friends, (lots) of (good) food, (lots) of (good) beer, and enjoying the beautiful summer weather.

Ladies and gents…I think I shall camp again.

Enjoy some pictures I stole (*with permission :)) from Miss. Rose!

Joe and Rose (who I stole the photos from!)

Turtles!

Renting canoes...such a good idea

Kayse and Pete!

Such a cute little guy

Ted and Marisa!

Kev, the fire master

Adam and Katy!

 

100 Days of Kindness, Day 69

A few things I wanna share with you:

This adorable video (that I stole off of Casey’s Facebook page – thanks!)

And this article by Ryan O’Connell, “How to be a 20-Something” – it’s great. Reminds me that I have to fully enjoy my 20′s while I can! That’s why Colin and I are going out with our friends tonight. Drinking and dancing? Yes, please!

My kindness today: Megan and I had a basketball game to coach today. I had to wake up at 7:30am on a Saturday morning because of it. That’s kindness I’ll tell ya!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)

The countdown is on…

It is officially 3 weeks from today till Meg and Matt’s wedding in Ireland! I can’t believe it’s coming SO soon now – it’s gonna be a blast!!! On that note, I went to the gym tonight because I truly need to be good these last few weeks – it’s crunch time baby. I’m wearing a strapless dress and my guns gotta look good you feel me?

Quick post tonight, because I am exhausted due to the Celtics

The weekend was great – Friday night a bunch of us went to Sissy K’s after work to enjoy some classy $1.50 drafts along with a dance party, felt like I was in college again. It was fun and I was even in bed by midnight, gotta love it. Saturday Colin’s parents were down helping Colin’s sister Liz move into her new apartment, so Colin and I went over to help. What a beautiful place it is! She is going to have a great time!

Afterward, we went to dinner downtown to Grill 23. It was beautiful and delicious! I ordered the Prime Flatiron steak au poivre which came with potato, cheddar & saucisson gratin – YUM. We also got mac n’ cheese, broccoli gratin, pomme frites and mashed potatoes as sides along with some red wine. We were all so full when we left! Such a lovely evening.

Sunday we went to mass and then I headed up to Andover to help Meg with some final wedding things. I literally can not believe it’s so close now! We had a nice afternoon/evening. Meg even fed me dinner and dessert, such a good big sister! I was so hungry I didn’t catch a picture of my dinner, but here is the amazing dessert Meg whipped up.

mmm mmm good

Lady was so excited to see me, and vice versa – I miss that little bugger! She recently got shaved (because she basically had dreadlocks…) so I have included ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures – just like when I got my hair done a few weeks ago. I think she might look a little funnier than me?! Maybe not…. haha :)

Before -

Shaggy and dreadlocked

After -

Hahaha poor Lady!

Little ratdog

I still love you Lady <3

Goodnight!

Lots o’ flowers

We had such a wonderful weekend at Colin’s grandpa’s house. Always a ton of laughs when we’re all together! Saturday we did some gardening (I learned that I have a natural talent for aerating soil.) We took lots of pictures of flowers (Mrs. T and I were snapping away.) We then had a bbq with delicious food and plenty of vino – yum! Today we went to church (ancient priest = looong mass) then had a lovely breakfast and got to visit with some of Colin’s grandmother’s sisters (great aunts?), it was very nice to see them and get to visit for a while. :)

Colin and I made it back just in time to watch the Celtics DOMINATE! Praise Jesus they won!!! Let’s keep it up boys. Back to beantown Tuesday – woopwoop.

Here are some of my pictures from the weekend. I got to play around with my new camera a little bit -

Love this color

Stone walls and the grass is green!
