I'm Baaaaack

First off I have to say Thank you for all of the love on my last post! I didn't mean to sound down and I certainly wasn't looking for any pity from you all I just wanted to give you all an explanation for my lack of posting in May and my small break this month.

Let me just tell you it was so nice to spend the last 2 weeks disconnected!  I know I owe quite a few people emails and I promise I will get to them this week.

So here is what I've been up to in pictures... I apologize this is a long one!

We said Good bye to two sets of couples who have been in our core group of friends for the past 5 years (the husbands graduated med school and they're moving for residency) and it still hasn't sunk in yet that our group of 5 couples is now 3 :(  Here we are on our last night happy hour with everyone living in the area:

I spent some time in Baltimore as usual at the Federal Hill Jazzfest and then Sailabration which is recognizing the Bicentennial anniversary of the war of 1812. The Baltimore Inner Harbor is full of  huge ships from all over the world, the boats are amazing.  I also got to see the 9/11 flag that was hanging at 90 west when the towers fell and heard the story about how it's been traveling around the country being restored and resown with reminants of American flags that have survived other tragedies. If you have a chance to see it and hear the stories I really suggest going.

I spent lots of time doing this...

I finally got to eat at the foodie mecca in Baltimore Woodberry Kitchen and I can tell you that it definitely lives up to the hype!

We had the most amazing drinks

And this dessert is to.die.for....
Malt ice cream, chocolate sauce, marshmallow fluff, wet peanuts
When I heard the description I was a little weary but let me tell you it seriously is the BEST.DESSERT.EVER and I'm craving it already and ready to go back.

I also spent at a lot of time in Annapolis...

I've been experimenting with my new summer drink...
 Summer shandy- perfect summer beer

This is kind of gross... it's a malt beverage and reminded me of something I would drink in college

Spent time with my parents especially my Dad since he's retired...

 Mom's hydrangeas
Delicious kabobs

My Parents- I hope I age as well as these two!

Me and Dad on Father's Day

**I have some exciting news on the job front so stay tuned and I should be back to regular blogging for good! I've missed you all so much and can't wait to fish through my google reader which has as least 1000+ and see what you all have be up to.  

It's good to be back!



  1. I adore what you have been up to! Relaxation! Your mom is too cute and I am dying over her shorts!

  2. Welcome back! Looks like you have been keeping busy. Woodberry Kitchen is delicious. I think I had that same drink in the little mug!

  3. Welcome back!! I've missed you blog posts!!! Hope all is getting better for you - can't wait to hear your good news! :)

  4. Welcome back!! I'm actually really jealous that you got to see that flag up close and in person! I remember seeing it and what I remember too was when it was carried into the stadium of that years winter Olympics. The entire place went silent. Amazing!
