My New Apron

I made myself an apron! I had a lot of scraps of fabric, much of which I had used for a picnic blanket I made a few years ago. Plus, lots of worn out jeans. Anyway, I did much the same thing, made a patchwork square fabric that I cut out to make a pinafore …

Christmas

Christmas was quiet and relatively warm (gah!). We started off with stockings; Mom made both of their stockings and Evie was able to use hers last year and Ben used his for the first time this year. So cute! Our next adventure came later when Ben started crying; we thought it was because he was …

The Outer Banks, part 3

The Outer Banks, part 1 The Outer Banks, part 2 The Outer Banks, part 4 On one of the days, we went to Jockey’s Ridge, which is, I guess, the tallest living sand dune on the East Coast. The view was pretty great and, you know, it was like walking on a sand dune. We …

Cox Farms

Cox Farms… wha-… why? We pass by this place, visible from the road, a lot, and it’s only open from September-sometime-maybe-early-October through the first week of November, and Evie would ask to go each time we’d pass by and we kept putting it off because… yeah. I finally noticed the closing date and picked up …

Anniversary

James and I recently celebrated our 8th (wedding) anniversary by wine tasting in Belmont at two different wineries (beautiful drive and beautiful views; mediocre to highly ok wines) and watching a movie (I had borrowed Atomic Blonde from the library a few weeks previous and we used the time to watch it [finally]… Good thing …

I’m Working on It

I’m sure there will be new posts of pictures, soon, but until then, a couple thoughts: Weird things about The East versus The West East Coasters don’t seem to like breakfast out. Or coffee. We started noticing that in MA but thought it was just an MA thing, but the same is true here in …

Wrapping Paper

One of my projects (in celebration of finishing my MLIS) was to make some reusable wrapping paper, and Evie and I pulled them out for the first time to wrap Ben’s birthday presents. I need to get some more fabric to make bigger ones (maybe two or three yards; the largest ones were squared with …

California

As mentioned, we went to Disneyland. But before going to Disneyland, we had to fly to California, where we got to spend some time with family and friends. The kids did pretty well on both plane rides. We took a midday flight from Dulles and got into LAX around 11pm EST/8pm PST on a Thursday, …

Disneyland, part 1

From the beginning, I knew I wanted to wait until Evie was around 5 to take her to Disneyland. I didn’t want to have to worry about a stroller and I wanted her to be old enough to remember it and to experience at least the majority of rides. Well, most of that worked out, …

Disneyland, part 2

On the first day, Evie wore her Elsa dress and we went to a character breakfast at Storyteller Cafe, where some of the kids were into it and some were not. And where they would often have a schedule to keep to and couldn’t finish up greeting kids in that particular section(?!). Plus, look at …
