I am still trying to figure out how Christmas has come and gone already. It will be 2009 in like 3 days and my 31st birthday is less than a week away. How did that happen? Where did the last 30 years go?
I suppose I do have a lot to say about a lot of random stuff, especially at this time of year. So I guess keep checking back in the coming days for ramblings about stuff you could probably care less about ;)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

Are all of the years, living without you
I wanna run back to you
And show you the life I've lived without you
Cause living without you is the only thing that hurts more than you

This picture was taken on August 6, 2007. We were headed to Baltimore, Maryland and Washington D.C for a week to take in some baseball games and see all the sites in D.C. I took this pic at some point on our drive down there and clearly Chris was REALLY happy about it.

"do they want to come in?"
"oh my gosh our house is such a mess"
"i don't have a bra on"
LOL! Chris says to me "I'm pretty sure they want to come in."
What a great surprise. They had originally planned to just come "trick or treating" at our door but had the wrong house number. They thought we were 22 and there was no 22 (at least no number on a house) and so they wandered up and down the street looking for 22. Can you just imagine what my neighbors must have thought about these two crazy people wandering the streets with these silly masks!?
So Chris's birthday was on the 2nd and a few months back his sister Alicia had called me about her and Paul coming here for a few days as a surprise for Chris's birthday since they were going to be out east for a wedding anyways. So Chris's parents thought it would be fun to come out as well and surprise Chris and Alicia since they didn't tell Alicia they were coming. SO I had to not only keep Alicia and Paul a secret from Chris, I had to make sure they didn't know Chris's parents were here. It was hard for me to keep it all quite, I almost slipped a few times.
On Saturday we took Chris's parents for a drive up north a bit to try and find a good spot for some nice fall pictures. We found a great area up in Andover and got some great pictures.Afterwards we took them for dinner to one of our favorite restaurants The British Beer Company.
We had plans that night to meet friends at the Sail Loft on the waterfront in the north end for Chris's birthday. There was 13 of us and it was really nice for Chris to have his parents and PandA there. Monday we went into the city and did the Duck Boat Tour. It was fun because we were the only ones on our boat. It was a little chilly and was the second time Chris and I had been on the tour. It was fun though and we got some great pictures. We spent some time shopping and had lunch at Faneuil Hall. Chris's parents had to head to the airport around 4 pm. Once they were off we stayed in the city with PandA. We walked around Boston Common and took them to Cheers to get a couple of pictures. Chris had a softball game that night so we headed home and Chris and Paul went to the game and Alicia and I stayed home and just hung out and watched TV.Tuesday was PandA's last day here so we thought we would take them over to Martha's Vineyard for a little change of pace. I have only been once before but I totally loved it. It is really pretty and lots of cute shops and restaurants etc. We thought it would be a great idea. Well it WAS a great idea till we got over there and found out the almost everything was closed for the season. Suckage! Oh well. We made the best of it.
Thanks to all 4 of you for an awesome 6 days. We had a great time and Chris had a great birthday weekend. We love you guys!

We left on a Friday around 5pm, traffic wasn't the greatest getting out of Massachusetts but for a Friday it wasn't all that bad. We of course had to stop and have a super healthy supper at McDonald's. Nothing like a little greasy burger action to rot in your stomach and kick the weekend off with a bang.
Unfortunately for Georgette, she had a really bad cold and was not feeling well at all. Every minute or so while we were driving down the highway at 80 miles per hour she would steer with her knee so she could blow her nose. Is she talented? Yes! Did I fear for my life from time to time? Yes! But we made it to Philly in one piece but not before I breathed in her germs which I just knew was not going to end well for me.
On Saturday we drove an hour or so with her sister and brother in law to a buffet out in Amish country. Shady Maple Smorgasbord. All the food is fresh and from local farmers and it was SO good. Totally worth the drive. Apparently there is an area outside the building for the Amish/Mennonites to park their horses and buggies. I suppose it is probably true but I didn't see any so I am sorta convinced they were just messing with me to see if I would believe them. The rest of the day we did a whole lot of nothing at Diane and Brian's house. Which was just what I needed. We played games, watched a movie and TV. Sunday we went into Philly and did some window shopping etc. I somehow managed to not take any pictures which is very odd for me. I am generally VERY camera happy. Oh well.
Thanks for a fun weekend G even if you did give me your germs and your nasty cold which I am still feeling the effects of. I would post a pic of G and I so you know who I went to Philly with but I am not allowed to post pics of her.

We drove all day Friday and were tempted to drive all the way through but by around 11pm we were both super tired and figured it would be better to just stop somewhere overnight and drive the rest of the way in the morning. We decided to stop in a place in North Carolina called Rocky Mount. It worked out perfectly because that Saturday Old Navy was having a jeans sale and there just happened to be an Old Navy almost right across from our hotel. It was like fate had led us there. Four pairs of jeans later we were on our way.
Right as you cross the border into South Carolina there is this super ghetto trashy tourist stop called South of the Border. Georgette insisted we stop there, which I will be honest has me a little concerned about her taste ;) Basically any crap you could think of was there. It was really a very odd place. I don't remember exactly what time we finally arrived at the condo which is in Garden City just south of Myrtle Beach. The building itself is right on the water and I couldn't get over how beautiful it was. The views were amazing. I seriously could have stayed there forever. I don't remember the last time I have slept that good. The sound of the ocean at night put me right to sleep. We had a very relaxing time yet managed to pack a whole lot of stuff into 8 days. Chris golfed 3 times and I went with him on one of those days.It was my first time on a real 18 hole golf course and I did really well. I won't tell you my score but believe me I did good for a first timer. Sadly it POURED the entire time we golfed. Although I suppose I should be happy we didn't get hit by the lightning that showed up for a bit and that it was the only day it rained our entire trip. Rain aside I had a lot of fun. This awesome pic of me below is on the 18th hole and as you can probably tell I am soaked from head to toe. Sexy I know!!We also played miniature golf quite a few times while we were there. You have not see mini golf courses until you go down there. It is INSANE, they are on every corner and all HUGE! I will never look at mini golf the same. We ate food, drank beer, went for drives, took a lot of pictures, sat on the beach at night and drank beer while watching people set off their fireworks up and down the beach. We sat on the beach and soaked up a lot of sun, we swam in the ocean and I got a wicked sunburn on my legs. It sucked a lot. You will notice there are no actual pics of us on the beach. That is because there was a strict rule that the camera was not to be present at anytime while I was in a bathing suit. We spent a day at the Ripley's Aquarium. They had a stingray petting area. That was different. I can't even describe what they felt like, slimy doesn't even begin to describe it. I could have spent all day in the tank area where all the fish and sharks were. It was pretty fascinating to watch them allHard Rock opened a theme park in Myrtle Beach this past year. Once Chris found out about it and found out they had a HUGE roller coaster --Led Zeppelin: The Ride-- he could not have been more excited. We arrived there around 10:30 am thinking we would spend 5 hours or so and then head back to the condo. We ended up staying till the fireworks show at 9:30 PM. We had a really fun day. Chris went on the Led Zeppelin roller coaster I think 7 times. I DID NOT go on it any times. I am a big wuss and not afraid to admit it. That thing was big and went upside down A LOT! Not my idea of a good time. I did go on the smaller Eagles roller coaster though and that was super fun. There was rides and shows and lots of food. We ate the most giant turkey legs ever. A lot of the people who worked there were Russian, that was odd. We met the Banana Splits, spent way too much money on souvenirs and had a lot of fun.
We had a really great time. I would have never left had I had the choice. The weather was perfect and Chris and I both needed a vacation. I can't wait to go back.
On thew way home we took a detour through New York City so we could go to the new NHL store in Manhattan. After that it was back to Boston to pick up Belle who I missed VERY much. I think she was sad to leave Jeremy though, he is her buddyFor those of you not on facebook I should have all the pics up on our picture blog by the end of the weekend so keep an eye out.
