I’m sorry I haven’t been so bloggy lately! I was in California for 10 days to attend two weddings, and one was my sister’s!
That’s the fam :-)
Unfortunately, I had one of the worst colds EVER spanning half the trip!! I spent the duration of the wedding goofy on cough syrup. :-) The pain that I thought was a hernia returned after bouts of extreme coughing but it’s better again. We took the red-eye home on Sunday, arriving in Boston at 6:30 AM the following morning.
I spent Monday mostly on the couch, blowing my nose and watching television, trying to recuperate because TODAY I started a new job! I am now the Web Content Producer at Lasell College! It’s a 25 hour a week position, so I’ll still be freelancing about 15 hours a week from home. The position is super cool…I’ll be running around campus trying to find news and posting it on the website! AND, Lasell is ONE MILE from my house! So I walked today. (And it was a good thing I brought my umbrella because it was raining when I left today!)
So, as you can see, I am a busy bee these days. We’re even returning to California at the end of the month for Matt’s aunt’s birthday party…WOW!!! Hopefully another icky cold won’t happen during that trip because we’re taking another red eye home!Filed under Photos, family, traveling | Comment (0)
My dad has a powerful jinx. The Mets have lost every game he’s been to over the last 20 years. At Shea, in Philly, in San Francisco…if my dad’s in the stands, the Mets can’t seem to win. The last time my dad saw the Mets win was in 1984 when I was a wee one. I don’t remember much of the game, but I do remember sitting at Shea eating green grapes.
I’ve seen the Mets win once since 1984; it was around 1998 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. I feel almost as anti-Giants as I do anti-Yankees (my anti-Yankees feelings makes me pro-Red Sox…my Mets and Red Sox fandom doesn’t interfere very often so it works out), so it was exciting for me to see the Mets win.
On Tuesday, I went with my parents, cousins, and uncle to see one last game at Shea. I hadn’t been to Shea in over 10 years so I thought it was a nice idea to give it a final farewell.
Until the 9th inning, it looked like my dad’s jinx would be a thing of the past! Unfortunately, it wasn’t so. (It’s too heartbreaking to write out what happened!) Why must the Mets toy with the hearts of its fans?
Anyway, I’m glad to see the Mets have won their games since that heart-wrenching game, but it would have been nice to see them win since it was probably my last opportunity to see them at Shea!
Good-bye, Shea!!! I don’t know how they’re going to change the lyrics to “Meet the Mets” because Citi doesn’t rhyme with Shea.

Last weekend was my shower and bachelorette party. My mom and sister came out from California!
We had the shower in one of the function rooms at Donahue’s in Watertown. It was definitely a great place to have the shower. I would have a function there again. We had our own private bar and there was so much food. I’ve been craving their toasted ravioli ever since. De-lish!!!
That’s me with my sister and my mom. I had to wear silly stuff. :-)
We played a few silly bridal shower games which were quite fun.
We played Jeopardy!
Teams made wedding gowns out of toilet paper!
Afterwards we went to Made By Me and painted pottery. It was a fun place for a bachelorette party. I’m not a go-out-and-get-wasted type of gal, so this was certainly more my speed! We brought our own wine, cheese, and cookies!!
The next day, we took a day trip to Gloucester.

It was kind of overcast, but we still waded in the water.
That’s my god daughter Kaitlyn, one of my bridesmaids, Debbie, my mom, and myself.

It was a lovely weekend. I was sad when it ended…but there is plenty to look forward to! Three weeks from tomorrow is my wedding!Filed under Greater Boston (General), My Life, Photos, family, marriage | Comment (0)
After reading about the Asian Market in Waltham in the Borderline blog, I knew I had to check it out!
I went last month when my sister was in town and suggested we make homemade sushi. I bought tons of great things to make sushi with…roe, shrimp, sesame seeds, seaweed, and more! I also bought some Pocky as an after dinner treat, a huge bag of frozen chicken dumplings, and some lop chong, which we later used for fried rice.
And it was a delicious dinner!Filed under Greater Boston (General), Photos, family, food | Comments (6)
