Those were the days.

Work today, was insurmountable. Mike had  the same. We got home, almost simultaneously at 7pm. I have stacks upon stacks of magazines in the mail today (I think the carrier was holding them all hostage, I refuse to believe I got 5 in the mail on the SAME exact day.) So I figure the best thing to do, is curl up with a glass of wine, my magazine stack and some brownies. :)

I'll catch you guys tomorrow. <3

Weekend Recap

       This weekend was glorious. We got some early moving done, watched some football, cleaned, odds and ends checked off the list, and Mike got school work finished.

          We also managed to make a trip to the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC. They were having their Science of Beer event on Thursday. Basically, they open up the Museum and all of it's exhibits, throw in a bunch of craft breweries (handing out free samples), Arts and Crafts booths (see the awesome pink koozie pictured) and they even had Beer Pong Physics. (You can see Mike signing the Wall of Champions)

I left my heart in New York

...like I always do. A few weeks ago (where DOES the time go?!) Mike and I flew up to NY for a mini trip. We went to the JETS opener, the Mets game, and over to the WTC. We also managed to fly around 9/11 instead of on it, which made everyone sleep a little better. The trip, like always, was amazing and we had a blast. In order to keep this short, I made a little baby collage of our trip. There are, as always, more pictures on facebook. 

click to make huge!

We're already ready to go back.
