2013, Week #51

Here we go into Christmas!  Here are the images from December 16-22:

Love this time of year. Taking comfort in the little things.

This year's present to friends & family - dark chocolate peppermint fudge!

"Changing the Present" event for local non-profits at my museum. A chance for shoppers to buy a membership or promotional item and support local worthy organizations.

Got an awesome evening planned.

Justin's new job celebration dinner.

Aaaaand the remains of Justin's new job celebration dinner.

2013, Week #50

Almost there!  Here are the photos from December 9-15:

3 cheers for going into work late on snowy, cold mornings. Look at the puppy cuteness I would have missed!

First real snow!

I know I posted one like it yesterday, but look at all this cute puppy snuggling!

Work baking.

Old & new, in a meta sense.

Courtyard urn at work.

Light hammock in the snow.

The blanket may have been my idea, but Sadie highly approves.


The boys.

Foot snuggler.

Just hanging at the top of the tree.

It was her late great-grandmother's, but I don't think anyone will mind if Baby Eleanor gets this next Christmas.

All are snuggly & warm tonight.

2013, Week #49

It's beginning to look a lot like . . . the holidays around here!  Images from December 2-8:

One of the mantels at the museum, all dolled up.

And another . . .

And another . . . 

And another!

Pile of puppy cuteness.

So dapper.

Can't handle the cuteness.

Finding this in my office = a day in the life of a museum professional.

Fancy pregnancy selfie (after the museum's holiday party, 19 weeks pregnant).

Brisk walk by the water. Love the light this time of day/year.

Found out the baby's sex this week! Based on the teeny tiny fist there in front of the nose, we think SHE'S gonna be a punk rocker.

Christmas mantel at home.

Outdoor lights!

The return of the light hammock.

Potato peeling view.

Sun seeking Sadie.

This puppy's sleeping positions are perennially entertaining.

2013, Week #47

Images from November 18-25 - not many last week.  I expect more in the coming week, with Thanksgiving and all.  Enjoy!

Homemade applesauce (first time - good practice for making baby food!).

My afternoon at work, pre-kids.

Sigh, another rough work night.  ;)

2013, Weeks #45 & #46

Tap, tap, is this thing on?  Just aiming for the finish line now on the 52 weeks of photos.  Here are the ones from November 4-17:

First ever attempt at tiling! The bit around the outlet is kind of a shit show, but the wall plate will cover most of it (we think).

Couldn't get a straight-on shot without sitting on top of the fridge, but here it is mostly done! Next up is grout, caulk, and replacing outlet covers.

Grouting makes everything look way worse . . .

. . . until it makes it look way better. Still some neatening up to do, though.

Love the new backsplash.

Can't. Stop. posting photos of the tile.

Pregnancy selfie at the request of others, I swear!

The end of Labor-in-Vain Road at sunset.

My night is fancier than your night (at The Breakers for a New England Museum Association conference opening party).

Want this bathroom.

Fancy candid.

Work night.

Rough life.

Don't blink. Don't even blink.

Bingo at a local bar.  As the announcer said, "You all know the directions.  It's as simple as it seems."

Triple P - pajamas, puppies, and patio on a warm November Saturday.

East, west, home's best.

Oh, this puppy.
