Butter fingers

Last night while waiting for an Uber I dropped my phone and shattered the screen. I was not too happy with myself. This morning I had accepted my clumsiness and was planning on going to the Verizon store to see what could be done until co-worker L asked me if I had a screen protector. I in fact did but hadn't thought to take it off and check the actual screen on my phone. Turns out I just shattered the screen protector. I'm a bit embarrassed that I didn't think to check myself.

I did have a couple of very delicious (and strong) White Russians last night which may have contributed to the dropped phone incident, but in my defense I have butter fingers with or without the help of alcohol.


I'm normally a beer or wine drinker but I do love a good White Russian. Even my husband ordered one which really surprised me. The bartender at Good Life remembered us from a few weeks ago when I was giving away extra candles from our wedding. I suppose she doesn't come across someone distributing excess wedding favors too often.

Why so secretive?

Bosses are being very secretive about upcoming office move. We all know it's happening but don't know when or where. Head boss has been measuring all the furniture and conference rooms.

Me: So are we getting new furniture?
HB: Nope.
Me: ?
HB: .......

L, our receptionist, has been getting curious phone calls regarding our "upcoming move". Does not take Nancy Drew to solve this mystery. Maybe I should start packing up my desk and see if bosses say anything.

Betrayed

Have been betrayed by a dear food love. Pizza. Ordered a mushroom flatbread pizza at hotel bar last night and started feeling icky not long after. Was in a terrible crying mood by the time we got home, not due to questionable pizza, but other things that I like to bottle up. Husband properly consoled me. Assured him it was really nothing more than beer tears and bad pizza. Stomach woke me up early to remind me it was still not happy. Thought about calling out but made it to work with a little help from my pink friend, Pepto-Bismol. Feel nauseous every time I think about questionable pizza. Hope to reconcile with different pizza in the future but right now it's just too soon.

Bridesmaidzilla

Very annoyed with planning a friend's bachelorette party. MOH does not communicate well and is not a good planner. Bridesmaids were not consulted about location or date of bachelorette. By a stroke of luck we were all available on the chosen weekend. MOH has been going to bride-to-be regarding financial issues after getting help from others (including yours truly). Details like food for the weekend have not been taken care of. Would love to take charge but MOH has made it clear that this is her event. I'm at my wits end here. I'm worried MOH is playing the martyr to bride-to-be. I've thought about telling bride-to-be after the wedding but I'm not sure if that's a good idea. One thing is sure - must make sure to be fully stocked with boxed wine and snacks for impending bachelorette weekend.

Mercury is not in retrograde

Had a terrible commute home yesterday. Everyone was annoying me and I was in a foul mood. Got home and announced how terrible my commute was only for Derek to out "bad day" me. Conceded defeat in bad day department to husband. Cancelled Taco Tuesday plans with friends to be a good wife and commiserate over drinks at local watering hole. Luckily said watering hole provided excellent people watching distractions. Thank you hipster with Tom Selleck 'stache and other hipster dressed like a grandmother from the 80s.

Having a much better morning. Got to work early and enjoyed a bagel with no one bothering me. Now must be good daughter and text mother who was also having a bad day yesterday. Mercury is not in retrograde. I checked.

Change of plans

As usual the weekend has flown by. Last week was fairly quiet at work due to the July 4th holiday so I'm trying to prepare myself for what I expect to be a much busier week.

Last night Derek and I had plans to go to Underbones in Somerville but it started raining at the bus stop so we decided to change our plans and go somewhere closer. We decided on Sunset Grill and Tap and got to the restaurant right as it started downpouring. We go to Sunset often enough that we don't really need to look at the menu. Derek always orders a Krusovice and the waiter or waitress always asks to point it out on the drink list. I think that Sunset should rename it "The Derek special". To be fair they have 100 beers on tap and over 150 bottles. I'd be surprised if someone knew every beer they have.

The mystery beer
Chicken empanadas and the steamed beer burger
The rain stopped at some point during dinner and we decided to pop in to Harry's on the way home. We had a drink or two there before calling it a night. We were home and in bed by midnight.

Harry's goes neon
Today I might take a solo trip to the movies to see Wonder Woman. After all, the weekend isn't over yet.

Thursday date night

I woke up this morning wondering why my alarm was going off when it was Saturday. It took me a moment to realize it is in fact Friday and I have to go to work. Not the best way to start the day but at least there's only one day of work left before the weekend.

Last night Derek suggested we meet up after work to have dinner at Wagamama. This is one of our frequented date night spots even during the summer months. We like our ramen. I always order the chicken ramen despite telling myself I should try something different.

creature of habit
After dinner we stopped off at the Weston hotel bar for a few drinks. It's usually not that busy unless there's a convention in the area which is why we like it. They also serve Snyder's honey mustard and onion pretzel pieces at the bar. Whoever made that wise snack decision is ok in my book.


I tried to take a nice photo of us
We discussed various topics over drinks and pretzels such as the popularity of Boyz II Men and weekend plans. I recognized Boyz II Men in a GEICO commercial and Derek had no idea it was them and so their former popularity was called into question. As for weekend plans they are still mostly undecided but they will include sleeping in Saturday morning.

Dinner in the burbs and a visit with Akira

Last night I rented a zipcar and drove out to the burbs to have dinner with my mom. She's on vacation this week and wanted to have a mother daughter night. She offered to come out to Boston but I wanted to visit Akira.

Akira is ready to play
I know what the kitties like
I let my mom pick our dinner location since she is the Framingham expert. She chose a local Irish pub called Owen O'Leary's that she'd been wanting to try.

Looks like a pub alright
The pub is a bit dated decor wise but what really matters is the food and the service. We each got the dinner special which was a three-course meal of either beef, turkey or haddock for $9.99. I was skeptical but our food was excellent and the bartender was friendly and attentive. We were too full to eat the included desert but brought it home for later. Good choice mom.

When I got home from dinner I checked my email and saw that my test results were back from the blood work I had done that morning (talk about a fast turn around time). I've had high cholesterol since I was a teenager without much change so I was expecting the same results. Imagine my surprise when I saw that I am now very comfortably in the normal range. I'm not quite sure what caused the dramatic drop but I can only assume it's due to the amount of nuts, fish and avocado I've been eating. Whatever the reason I'm happy about it.

Two Hamilton tickets or one octopus end table that really ties a room together.

Hamilton is coming to Boston and I really want to see it so I got all excited when I saw that the tickets were finally for sale. Then I saw the price of the cheapest tickets.

483 PER TICKET


Derek's response: "Fuck that I'm out. For something that is gone forever after an hour and a half, huge waste of cash. Rather save for house."

Sigh....I know he's right. We have better things to spend our money on like a house or this amazing Octopus end table!

It has a solid 5 star rating and has glowing reviews such as "for people who like octopuses" and "it really tied our room together". I'm not sure how an octopus ties a room together but I believe you Katie.

Now I just have to convince Derek.

Me: look what I found! Pretty sweet right? And only the cost of two Hamilton tickets.

Derek Cutler: how lovecraftian

Me: There's only two left. According to Amazon we better hurry .

Derek: why are you looking at end tables?

Me: Amazon thought I would like this and I agree. So technically the end table was looking for me.

I mean I didn't get a no...

I have tendinitis in my arm but I'm still blogging for YOU America

I wish I could say I got tendinitis in my bicep from something cool like punching Nazis or winning some type of sporting event but I can't punch and I don't really sport. I basically got tendinitis from sitting on my couch. My body hates me.

As you can see, my 4th of July is pretty wild. Just wait until we bust out these vegetarian fed hot dogs from Wholefoods with no nitrates. At least when I go get my cholesterol tested this week and the results come back as STOP EATING SO MUCH DAMN CHEESE I can say I'm eating vegetarian fed hot dogs from Wholefoods, what more do you want from me? 

Anyways, I hope you're swimming in a pool while eating lots of grilled meats with nitrates. This is America after all.

Lazy Sunday



I'm a cat bed now. I took a nap earlier and now I'm not tired enough to go to bed yet and so you get this post. The consequences of Sunday naps.

If you like it, post it.



I took this last night to check out my eyeshadow and lip gloss. I like the photo so I'm posting it. No shame in my selfie game.

On social media and sharing your personal life in your 30s

I've noticed a subtle shift in my social media habits recently. I haven't been sharing as much personal information as I used to. I look back at some of my older blog posts or even my very old LiveJournal (RIP) and cringe. Why did I feel the need to share so much? I'm glad social media wasn't really around when I was in high school. God only knows what I would have been sharing. If we ever have children you can bet I will be watching their social media like a hawk.

Snapchat recently launched a Snap Map feature. People can now see where you are down to the street address. I might have thought this was a neat feature a few years ago when I shared everything but now I find it a bit creepy. No one needs to see where I am at all times or how often I'm at Wholefoods.

I still share my life via social media but now I'm more selective of what I post. I'm more aware of how what I post could be perceived by others. Knowing some people at work were discussing my instagram certainly has made me think twice about what photos I share.

I don't regret how open I was in my 20s on my blog and social media but I'm perfectly happy keeping some things private now.

The wedding photos are in

We may not have had a videographer for our wedding but one thing I knew I wanted was a professional photographer. We hired Josi of Josi Photo and she was worth every (reasonable) penny. We love how the photos came out.




Now to decide which ones to print.

Walk around the res

Derek and I just got back from a nice long walk around the reservoir. It's a 1.56 mile loop around and probably about a mile walk to get to from our apartment. Feels good to get the blood pumping on a Saturday night. We have a wedding tomorrow at noon at a winery so we're staying in tonight.

I got an email from our wedding photographer that our wedding photos were uploaded but the link didn't work. I emailed her about it so hopefully it will be fixed soon. I really want to see the photos.

I want to have a snack but I should be good and not eat before bed. So I say NO to you avocado and tortilla chips.

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Hump day

I'm currently reliving my early 20s through music on Spotify. The Killers, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, Passion Pit. There was some good music happening in the 2000s.

Derek brought me home a six pack of Harpoon Camp Wannamango. I'm looking forward to drinking those delicious bad boys later this week. I'm sticking to the H2O tonight. Once the laundry is done I'm off to bed.

Do the right thing

If you read my blog regularly you probably know that I despise Donald Trump. I don't think he's fit to lead this country and seems to be dragging us backwards. His latest terrible decision is to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Why anyone would be against protecting the planet is beyond me.

Yesterday the Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, was quick to say that Boston would uphold the Agreement.

Boston is consistently ranked as one of the top greenest cities in the US and I'm grateful to live in a city that embraces clean energy and protecting our environment.

Boston is not the only city pledging to uphold the Climate Agreement. 92 other Mayors have also agreed to continue to honor the Agreement.

We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks. The world cannot wait — and neither will we.
I hope more cities pledge to honor the Agreement.

Come on summer

We didn't have any Memorial Day plans since we just got back from our honeymoon but the rainy weather certainly didn't motivate us to do anything. The heat even kicked on this morning. Definitely a stark contrast to Aruba weather. Any day summer wants to make its way to Boston would be great.

Saturday, May 27, 2017

Aruba

We're back from our honeymoon! We may be a little burnt and a few pounds heavier but we had a great time. We stayed at Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach and really enjoyed the resort. The pool and beach were fantastic as was the food. We were also in walking distance of a ton of other resorts and restaurants so the location was perfect.

Some of our favorite spots:


We didn't have any activities planned except for a sunset boat cruise which my cousin and her husband booked for us as a gift. We also had drinks with a former co-worker of mine who happened to be in Aruba staying nearby. Otherwise, we lounged on the beach and in the pool and drank a ton of Balashi beer and daiquiris.




We only stayed five days which may not seem long enough for some people but for us it was perfect. We both start to get a little antsy to get home if we vacation for too long. There's only so much lounging one can do. It was the perfect amount of time for us.

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Mr. and Mrs.


As of yesterday around 1:15 p.m. We had such a great time and I'm so grateful for everyone who celebrated with us. We have some pretty awesome people in our lives and of course I now have a pretty awesome husband in my life.

RIP Chris Cornell

Very sad news this morning. Chris Cornell passed away last night at the age of 52. Growing up in the 90s his music was a huge part of my youth. From Soungarden to Audioslave to even the Casino Royale Bond theme, he was an amazing talent.



On my deathbed I will pray 
To the gods and the angels 
Like a pagan to anyone 
Who will take me to heaven

Making a long day even longer

I'm finally relaxing at home and getting ready for bed after a very long day. I worked late and then had to run some errands before I headed home. When I finally got home I realized I left the place cards for the wedding back at work. I could have gone back in to get them tomorrow or Friday but I wanted to get it over with so I took an Uber back to work and grabbed them. I'll sleep easier with one less task on the to-do list. Oddly enough I'm feeling less stressed than I was last week.

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Four days

Tomorrow is my last day of work before the wedding. I took Thursday and Friday off to run errands and spend time with family and friends. We picked up our rings from the jeweler today. I'm really happy with them. I wish I could wear mine now but I'll be good and wait a few days.

Before I head to bed I wanted to share an incredible story I read on the Atlantic today, My Family's Slave. It's a long read but well written and worth the time.

"She lived with us for 56 years. She raised me and my siblings without pay. I was 11, a typical American kid, before I realized who she was."

Bachelorette

I had my bachelorette party last night. It was a lot of fun and I can tell that my friends put a lot of planning into it. We started out at Fiona's with drinks and snacks and lots of temporary tattoos. Then we got on a party bus and headed out to dance and drink around the city. I woke up with a little bit of a hangover but once I ate and took a nap I felt much better. Now I'm just relaxing around the apartment debating if I want to watch Me Before You. I know it will make me cry so I'm debating if I'm in the mood for a sad movie.

Here's a picture on the party bus last night.

One month, tenth days and other lengths of time that are stressing me out.

I haven't abandoned you blog. I've just been stressed/busy with wedding planning, work, Bosco and life in general

Wedding planning - our wedding is one month from today! When did that happen? I'm excited but stressing about everything going smoothly. I'm taking a gamble by ordering my flowers through the internets but every florist I called couldn't do it. Here is my tip for you. Order you bouquet way early. IT WILL ALL BE OK. If you say it in caps it makes it true.

work - still very busy and still understaffed. We have a new assistant starting May 1st and a college student working over the summer helping out. My desk looks like a paper factory exploded.

Bosco - had some teeth pulled a biopsy on a small spot on his leg. He's been in a cone for TEN DAYS. It has felt like a damn lifetime! He was not pleased which means I'm not pleased and it has not been fun for anyone. I tried explaining this to Bosco but he is, after all, a cat. The good new is his stitches were removed today and he doesn't need the cone anymore. *paw five*

I will catch up on blogs soon. I need to check in on my internet peeps.

Change of plans

Too much fun on Friday night = ordering Zaftigs and lounging around in PJs on Saturday night.

I love the Ferris Bueller Dominos commercials with Joe Keery (Steve from Stranger Things). He's a good Ferris and is adorable.

I also love looking at our wedding registries and seeing what's been bought. Exciting! My shower is on the 23rd.

Why am I blogging when I should be sleeping

Who finally did her taxes tonight? This girl. I also ate a homemade pizza for dinner and had a piece of Derek's leftover birthday cake.

I finished watching Broadchurch on Netflix. I thought it was pretty good but I don't think I'm going to watch the second season. I know who the killer is and I just don't see the point in continuing the series after that. If you've seen the second season let me know if it's worth it.

Weekend plans include celebrating Derek's birthday back in our old hood and NOT DOING TAXES BECAUSE I ALREADY DID THEM *cackles*

Opening Day

Today is Opening Day for the Red Sox. I'm not a baseball fan but I do consider Opening Day an unofficial sign of spring. It also means I have to start walking from my office to Kenmore to be able to get on the T. At least it's nice out today so I won't mind the walk. And now I want a ballpark hot dog.

On a sadder note, a young man went missing in Boston last week. 23-year-old Michael Kelleher went missing Wednesday night after attending a Celtics game with a co-worker. His last known location was Paul Revere Park where he tried to hire an Uber but was never picked up. Unfortunately when a young man goes missing in Boston after a night of drinking he's usually found in the water. I hope that's not the case but it doesn't look good.

Friday, March 24, 2017

Good Morning!

It took me 20 minutes to get the shower curtain up so I could take a shower this morning. They're still working on the bathroom so it was taken down while Vlad Contractor worked (I will explain this in another post). It kept falling down and since I'm short it's not easy to get it back up. I'm pretty sure I pulled a muscle in my back trying. At one point it fell down on me while I was in the shower. You can laugh, Derek did when I told him. I think I've reached my swearing quota for the day.

Someone had a "fun" Saint Patrick's Day

Derek woke me up at 4 in the morning to tell me that there was a major leak in the bathroom. There was water coming down from the ceiling and it was getting everywhere. Just what you want to be dealing with at 4 in the morning. Derek rigged up a trash bag and a pot to get the water into the tub rather than all over the floor. I left a message for our landlord and called property management. I didn't think this was something that could wait.

We found out what the issue was fairly quickly. A woman who lives two floors above us got drunk on Saint Patrick's Day, clogged her sink and left the water running. She passed out in bed while the bathroom flooded. The unit above us has even worse water damage than we do. It was coming out through the electrical outlets in their bathroom. I didn't see any water coming out of the outlets but I won't be using them until they're checked out by an electrician.

I stay home and I still have to deal with the drunks on Saint Patrick's Day. I bet she has a hell of a hangover.

Friday, March 17, 2017

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

In my younger years I would rarely stay home on Saint Patrick's Day. I even went to the parade in Southie one year. The highlight of the parade was seeing a drunk girl get tackled by two cops for running out onto the parade route and attempting to run away from the police. Now that I'm a bit older I'd rather stay home and avoid the crowded bars. The time change has left me feeling pretty tired too so I think I'll be celebrating from my bed tonight.

A Quick Review of Insidious 3


Scary enough to make you jump out of your chair and throw your crostini and brie in the air.
You've been warned.

One more thing crossed of the list

The wedding invitations have been ordered. We went with a Boston skyline design which I think is appropriate since we're getting married right in the city. There was a bit of sticker shock when I saw the final price for the invitations and ours are fairly simple. I shouldn't be surprised considering everything about a wedding is expensive.

I bought some new eye cream at Sephora today. The skin around my eyes has been so dry and itchy. Thanks winter! According to the saleswoman at Sephora this cream is very popular in Korea. According to my bank account, it is expensive.

I'm getting ready to head over to my friend Lil-Anne's place for a movie night. She stocked up on fancy snacks including brie and artichokes. I'm fine with just popcorn but I'm not going to say no to that.

I went to Worcester and I didn't even get to see a shady strip club

Fiona and I drove all the way to Worcester on Saturday to see Panic at the Disco at the DCU Center. We were pretty excited because Worcester is kind of known for shady strip clubs. We weren't actually going to go to a strip club because I'm not paying $15 for a beer with a side of hepatitis. We just wanted to drive by one. We must have been staying in the classy area of Worcester though because we saw none.

We made it to the DCU Center and procured two massive beers from a nice older woman who we decided was named Maude. Good thing we didn't go to a strip club because the DCU Center is apparently cash only.

The age range of this show was teenagers, moms and Ginny and Fiona. I guess that makes us hip? We'll go with that...

After the show we went to UNOs and then to a Mexican place for margaritas. That would probably explain why I have heartburn today. At some point we took this photo and I texted it to Derek just saying "boobs".


We were a bit tired this morning which totally explains why we drove an hour in the wrong direction on the highway! Oh my God how did we do that?

So how was your weekend?

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Oh my God I'm exhausted

Derek's belated company holiday party was last night and we didn't get to bed until way too late. It was at Oceanaire near Government Center. The atmosphere and the food were great. I'd go back. Derek and I are currently complaining to each other on gchat about how tired we are. One of us can't have caffeine though *sobs into glass of water*.

We're finally tasting food for the wedding tonight. I need to get invitations ordered ASAP but I can't really do that without knowing what food we're serving. How is it already March?! Nobody panic!

Here are some photos from Oceanaire.

Don't You Just Hate It

A Taste of Spring

When it's in the 70s in February you need to spend as much time outside as possible.
You also need a friend who has a fire pit in their backyard.



The only thing lovelier than this weather are my friends.

Date Night


Last night at the Red Hat.
Derek had a burger and I had a fish sandwich.
We both had waffle fries, which are the best kind of fries in my opinion.
Thank you Red Hat for being consistently delicious.

The fridge saga

Our new fridge was finally delivered today! The installation didn't go quite as planned but everything eventually worked out thanks to having a handy landlord.

It's a tight fit but it fits.
Time to restock.
The fridge was installed within minutes but when the deliveryman went to open the fridge door it wouldn't open all the way. The door was hitting the baseboard which was preventing it from opening. The deliveryman told me that this was the smallest fridge they had that wasn't a mini fridge. I'm not sure if that was true but I let Austin (our landlord) know what was happening. Rather than searching for a new fridge or destroying the baseboard, Austin just changed the side that the fridge door opens on. Problem solved! 

I've really missed having a home cooked meal. There's only so much takeout you can eat before you get sick of it. Don't forget to thank your fridge tonight.

Already in weekend mode

I felt like I was going to pass out on the train this morning. It was terrible. I started feeling really hot and dizzy and I told Derek I needed to get off and sit down. Once I was off the train and sitting on a bench I started to feel better. I think the cold air helped. I feel fine now but that was not a fun way to start my morning.

Our fridge is dead. Gone to that big old junkyard in the sky. We have a mini fridge coming tomorrow and a new fridge arriving on Tuesday. We're roughing it for now, and by roughing it I mean eating takeout. We had to toss all our food

Tomorrow is my first dress fitting. I don't think too many alterations are needed. I still haven't found shoes yet but I figure I can just bring a pair of heels around the height that I want. No tall heels for this girl. I usually wear flats unless it's a special occasion and I'd say my own wedding is a special occasion. I've also finally started our wedding registry on Amazon and Crate & Barrel. It's fun adding things. Somebody please get me the salad spinner. I'm serious!

I have Monday off and many fun things planned for this upcoming long weekend. My brain is already in weekend mode.

Hello?

It's pretty rare for my office to close due to snow, so when I heard we were getting hit with a storm on Thursday I planned to be ready to go for work. I woke up the morning of and hadn't heard a peep from the office so I left Derek snoozing away since he was working from home and headed off to work. I trudged through the windy streets of Boston and picked up a bagel to eat for breakfast. I get to the office and notice that all the lights are off. That's a bit strange because it was almost 9 and usually someone has arrived to turn on all the lights by then. I started to have a feeling that something was off.

I walked around the office turning lights on and saw that our accounting guy was in. I asked him where everyone was and he asked me if I got the text saying that we were closed. As you can guess, I did not get the text. I was a little peeved at this point but decided to eat my bagel first before I headed home. I texted my boss to let him know that he forgot about me. He asked me to call him and he explained that his text would not go through to my phone so he emailed my personal email to let me know the office would be closed. I usually don't check my email at night before I go to bed and I don't check it until I'm at work in the morning so I didn't see the email. I could have been curled up in bed all nice and cozy. 

I decided to make the best of the situation and stop at the supermarket to get some food. I made it home before the snow got really bad and I even took a nap. Not the perfect snow day but a snow day none the less.

A very wet victory parade

Waiting for the Pats in the sleet and snow
As you may have heard the Patriots won the Super Bowl. I'm not a huge sports fan but I'll show some hometown pride, especially if your boss let's you slip out of work for an hour to check out the victory parade.
The crowd heading out of the Pru
The parade was supposed to start at 11 but they got off to a late start. After a half hour of waiting in the sleet and snow the duck boats finally started to make their way down Boylston Street.

Bob Kraft

Bill Belichick. He's actually kind of smiling!

Gronk

Tom Brady

It's not a parade without confetti
As soon as the last duck boats were in sight I made my way through the crowd to get back inside to dry out. My coworkers followed a few minutes later. My coat was pretty much soaked through. Luckily I have a heater at my desk and dried off pretty quick.

Tomorrow it's supposed to be 55 and Thursday we're getting a foot of snow. Always a fun time with New England weather.
