New England Vacation, 13 Months Late(r).

I know, I know! I am a horrible blogger!

We recently returned from a two week trip out west where we visited places in Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado, it was an amazing experience.  I do have the best of intentions of blogging about our trip once I actually upload and organize the pictures.

However, this post is about a trip we took LAST year in September 2011.   I know I shared our first leg of the trip but never got around to sharing the rest of the trip.   I thought this would be a good time to show you the photobook that I made from our New England trip.  We had a blast discovering places that were new to us, I really fell in love with Bar Harbor, Maine and really enjoyed going whale watching in Boston.   Go ahead, check out the photobook and let me know what you think. 

PS, this was the first photobook I created and I made mistakes so cut me some slack, please! 

PS, Hi Uncle Buck!  xoxo

Instagram February Photo a Day (Days #9, #10 & #11)

Day #9, Front Porch - I lovelovelove our front porch! Day #10, Self Portrait - I totally forgot about this picture until I had taken my make-up off, thank gosh for Instragram's filters! lol.
Day #11, Makes Me Happy - He ALWAYS makes me happy but even more so when he is off on Saturday and will spend hours cleaning our house! I have never had to clean our stainless steel appliances in over 7 years and I hope to never have to!

Instagram February Photo a Day (Days #6, #7 & #8)

Day #6, Dinner - I was feeling lazy and uninspired so I just threw together some chicken and spinach and opened a can of corn, it was good, easy-peasy and served it's purpose!

Day #7, Buttons - Call me spoiled but I LOVE my heated steering wheel in my Cadillac!

Day #8, Sun - I was pretty sure "sun"glasses were about the only sun I'd see that day!

Instagram February Photo a Day (Days #4 & #5)

Day #4, A Stranger - Jim & I were out running errands and while we were getting our car cleaned (exterior and interior) we walked next door to Louie's and got pizza slices for lunch.
Day #5, 10am - I spent the morning lounging in my pajamas scrolling through Pinterest on the iPad. We had a surprise party for my sisters 40th birthday last night so this morning was a little rough seeing as that by 10am we had only been home 6 hours and I spent 7 hours on the dance floor in my heels last night! I feel like I've been ran over by a truck!

Instagram February Photo a Day Challenge

I'm back ... again. I always have the best of intentions for this little blog of mine but I am horrible at keeping it updated, believe me I know this for a FACT.

I have decided to join the Instagram February Photo a Day Challenge. I figure it like this, I am ALWAYS close to my phone and I love Instagram so I'm going to give it a shot. I then decided (today) that I'd post my photos to my blog, I think it will be easy enough to post ONE photo here on a daily basis, right? I just found it too hard to keep up on here with long posts with lots of pictures so I'm hoping this is a way for me to keep the blog around or else I'm just going to go ahead and
delete it like I've thought about doing a million times.

I'll catch you up to day #3 and then from here on out will post one photo per day for the month, we'll shall see if I can make it until the end!

Day #1, My View - I had a day off work and enjoyed being home during the day.
Day #2, Words - I love seeing this statement.
Day #3, Hands - The hands of my gorgeous Michael Kors watch (Christmas gift from the hubs)

{ Stowe, VT ~ Road Trip Stop #1 }

I know I have totally neglected this blog for the last 7 months, but I'm back! To be honest, I got into a funk about the whole blogging thing and it wasn't enjoyable to me anymore so I took some time off, although I never intended for it to be this long! I was still reading and enjoying all of my favorite (yep, all 500 of them) blogs but I didn't want to blog myself. I'm hoping to get back to posting on a regular basis and hope that I still have some friends and followers who even want to read what I have to say!

In early October we went on a New England road trip, it was a beautiful 12 days spent together exploring parts of our beautiful country that neither of us had been to before. We drove to New York and took the ferry to Vermont and then made our way to our first stop, Stowe. This was Jim's favorite stop on our trip, he just fell in love with the mountains of Vermont.

{ Easter & Pottery Barn Mirror }

I wanted to get pictures of my Easter decor and crafts this past weekend but have been sick with bronchitis and pneumonia for the last 8 days! I'm still pretty down and out but before Easter was over I wanted to at least put a picture of my mantel on the blog. This is also the first time you'll be seeing our new amazing Pottery Barn Eagan Multipanel Mirror, I lusted over this piece for months and months before I decided to bite the bullet and pay the outrageous price that PB was asking, and I tell you what, I don't regret it one bit, this is an amazing addition to our home.

{ Lil' Wayne/Nicki Minaj Concert }

Last Saturday we were able to enjoy the Lil' Wayne & Nicki Minaj concert from a suite, we had such a good time. I have to laugh when I look at these pictures, it looks like we had the entire suite to ourselves (us, my bro and sis) but that wasn't the case, there was 22 of us total.

Sisters & Brother

We ended the night at Boston's, a gourmet pizza place/bar. Cheers!
