November Snow

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I woke up this morning, strolled across the hall to get ready to do some push-ups and crunches, looked out the window and what did I see? Oh yes, my favorite thing: Snow! As many of you know, I Heart Snow. It’s more of a wintry mix — snow and ice — but I saw […]

Bloomers

Sunday, November 18th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Bloomers rules. As of last night, it is one of our top two favorite restaurants in Saratoga Springs, along with Beekman Street Bistro. Coincidentally (or not?), both are bistros. The Bloomers subtitle is “An American Bistro.” Housed in a beautifully remodeled old diner on Route 9 (technically in Ballston Spa, not Saratoga, but close enough), […]

Wine Club #4

Saturday, November 17th, 2007 · 7 Comments

Thursday night Sarah and Eric hosted Wine Club #4 at their awesome new house, right here in Saratoga Springs. The theme: “Bring Out the Animal in You.” From Brian’s Goats do Roam to the boxed people’s choice, Thirsty Lizard (which didn’t quite fit in my pocket), to mine and Jen’s Sarah’s Blend (featuring the so […]

A Dog’s Life

Saturday, November 17th, 2007 · 2 Comments

I realized that I haven’t shared any pictures of Stella and Happy on my blog in a long time (has it really been more than a year??). I know there are many of you Stella and Happy fans out there, so I figured it was about time. First, some sunbathing dogs: Lately, Stella has really […]

Walk & Eat Less Meat, Save the Planet

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007 · No Comments

I was really glad to see this story in Sunday’s Times Union — Fighting fat and climate change: One numbers-crunching scientist calculates that if all Americans between 10 and 74 walked just half an hour a day instead of driving, they would cut the annual U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, by […]

Alex’s Surprise Birthday Party

Saturday, November 10th, 2007 · No Comments

Alex was a key member of Jen’s team of masterminds who pulled off My Awesome 30th Birthday Party. He also directed and produced the hilarious and most excellent video that was one of the highlights of my party (what’s that? you still haven’t seen it? let me know if you want to!). Last night in […]

Alexis’ Wine Tasting Birthday

Saturday, November 10th, 2007 · No Comments

In the great tradition of wine tastings past — including Jen’s 30th and Alex and Cati’s summer Sauvignon Blanc bash, all inspired by our Bay Area tasting days — Alexis hosted a blind Riesling tasting for her birthday last Saturday. As usual — Wine Club #2 being the exception — Jen and I did not […]

CA Trip: Dad’s Birthday & Family Reunion

Thursday, November 8th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I’ve come to an important realization: I’m a morning blogger. The earlier I wake up, the more likely I am to blog. If I don’t wake up early enough, I always have good intentions to blog at the end of the day after work, but by then, my eyes are usually pretty sore after being […]

Halloween @ Alex & Cati’s

Monday, November 5th, 2007 · No Comments

Happy Standard Time, Dear Readers! I trust you all enjoyed the extra hour of sleep or leisure time this weekend. Even though it’s only an hour change, it felt like it threw off my internal clock more than that. Lots happening lately, but today I blog about the October 20 Halloween party hosted by Alex […]
