i few weeks ago i upgraded my firefox browser. i just now restarted, and when i opened firefox i noticed all my bookmarks were gone. yes. i lost every single thing i have bookmarked in the last several years. sigh. some of those web sites were very important, and it will take me a while to find them all again. blah.


last night was so nice. joe was napping when i got home from work, so i started making dinner. i haven’t cooked in a while (joe normally does since he gets home before me), so i really enjoyed it. my phone rang as i was peeling potatoes, and it was joe trying to find me. i thought i had made enough noise getting my pots out to wake the dead! last night we had mashed potatoes, corn, baked chicken (for joe) and apple pie. i haven’t made a pie in a while. i think joe was impressed. 🙂

while we were eating, we watched the season premiere of gilmore girls. it was pretty good. i’m so sad about luke and lorelei breaking up though. after that, we watched the braves smash the mets 12-0. then we got to enjoy some quality time together. that was really nice. 😉 definitely one of my favorite nights. and tonight, my hubby is taking me out to dinner. yay!

our leader

last night, joe was installed as president-elect of our kiwanis club. our dads both came for the program and got to enjoy our last steak night of the summer. joe’s been a member of kiwanis for several years now, and the club means a lot to him. he is in charge of organizing a pizza party once a month for children at the local children’s shelter, which is such a great idea because the kids absolutely love it. it’s a lot of fun to go and get to know them. they love the attention. next year, joe will be president, which i guess means i will be the first lady. hehe. i’m so proud of him, and i was very proud to be his wife last night.

the honeymoon, part 2

on thursday, we headed across the river to harvard. what a beautiful campus. we felt smarter just by being there. we walked around the entire campus looking for the big “harvard” sign we were sure was there. we never did find it. we did, however find one of many big libraries.

the honeymoon, part 1

and now, as if you don’t have *enough* pictures to look at, i have our honeymoon pictures and story.

we flew into boston on monday, and, after spending an hour on the tarmac, got a cab to head to our hotel. when we arrived, the desk clerk told us he didn’t have our reservation. we had booked it online through expedia, and apparantly expedia didn’t pass our information along. while joe talked to him, i called my parents and had them fax our hotel info. we got it worked out and, after we mentioned being on our honeymoon, were upgraded to the top floor (where the rooms are about $100 more a night then we paid), the gold crown floor, where we could have our breakfast delivered to our room every day.

we spent most of tuesday at faneuil hall. it was a large marketplace, and i had fun going from store to store and kiosk to kiosk. we had a caricature of us drawn, and bought most of our souvenirs. it was nice to get that out of the way.
