Success!

Bucket O' Balls

We are experiencing some fantastic weather in Boston these past couple of weekends!
Ty Turley and I at the driving range in Lexington.  It is a good thing I had my golf clubs shipped all the way across the country so I would have something to do on this fantastic day!

The windup.  Any suggestions mother?  Maybe I'm crouched down a bit too far? Or leaning forward too much?

The follow-through.  Dang, look at that booty!  :)

ALRIGHT!!  Someone feels the Christmas spirit even more than I do!  Can that be possible?!

Deck the Halls on Halloween

You may be thinking it is a bit early.....

Not only do I have a reaf hanging up on my door:
- I have been listening to Christmas music for the last three weeks
- I have already began shopping for my sisters
- I have already started the 2011 Christmas Newsletter

No way, it is NEVER too early for Christmas!!

Frosted window panes
Candles gleaming inside
Painted candycanes on the tree
Santa's on his way
He's filled his sleigh
With things, for you and for me

[DANCE WITH ME MUM]
It's that time of year
When the world falls in love
Every song you hear
Seems to say
Merry Christmas
And may all your dreams come true
And this song of mine
In three quarters time
Wishes you and yours
The same thing too

Hallo-WEEN!

Racking leave with Adrienne in front of our lil house.

What better place to be on Halloween then the most famous halloween place in America (besides Sleepy Hallow) - SALEM among the witches.  That is right.  Me, who has only watched  five scary movies in her 23 years of life - two of which were so old they were in black and white.  And not only did I just go to Salem, I also went on a Haunted Tour around the city!  I know!!  I am getting so brave!  Honestly it wasn't too bad.  The only really creepy part was when we went to the sight of where the actual victims of the Salem Witch Trials were hung.  Eerie.
The only picture I got of us in Salem, MA.  I was too scared to take anymore pictures with the chance of having an oddly misty person in the background.

Boston's Science Museum 10.29.10

We had such a BLAST in the Science Museum this weekend!  We drew pictures of ourselves in the reflection of a large silver globe, we learned about astronauts, timed ourselves running, experimented with the science behind playgrounds, watched a birth (It was Justin's idea and he freaked out a little. Ha!), compared brain sizes among different animals, guessed what odd tools were used for (the apple picking tool honestly looked like a medieval butterfly catcher), and so much more.  If you haven't been to the Science Museum in Boston, grab a great friend and go!  You won't regret your decision.


Science Museum with Ashley, a friend visiting from DC.  Did I mention she is an AGGIE?!

Me, Justin, Kendell, and Ashley.  I got new boots, can you see them?

After the museum and a game of Rumikub (yes Taylor, I did win) we went on another little adventure.  Kendell showed us a never ending-slightly sloping-slick concrete floored hallway at MIT along with a rolling chair.  If you add up all those variable you get a GREAT TIME.

Portland, Maine - 10.23.10

A small group of friends, being spontaneous, decided the best way to use our time was to drive up to Maine and check out a couple of lighthouses.  It took two hours to drive there, walked around the little cobble streets, window shopped (a little too upscale for my liking), ate my first ever New England Clam Chowda (as they say it), visited a couple lighthouses, and headed back home.  It was a really fun trip.

This is what they call a Water Taxi in Maine.  It is van attached to a boat - a little redneck if you ask me.

Harvard Pilgrim, the company I work for, has an office right off the wharf in downtown Portland.  Looking out the windows of the office you have a great view of the ocean and sailboats.

Head Light House.

Hooray!  Lighthouse!

Another one.  I don't remember the name of this lighthouse in York, ME.  York is another quaint town, I need to visit it in the daylight again.
