The next couple of weeks will be draggin’ ass. I have 11 days off from work coming and it will be no fun waiting for stupid time to hurry it’s ass up so I can pretend I’m a teenager for a little while and just eat and sleep. Oh yeah, and also enjoy the holidays with family and friends. I haven’t asked for any “big ticket” items. I think I’m all set as far as the latest electronic gadgets and whatnot. I guess that makes me a terrible at pretending to be a tech blogger from my last post? My niece made an elaborate gift matrix for things she wants for Christmas. I wish I was that organized at that age! I also wish I took a picture if it, I was impressed.
Anyway, on to my usual weekend recap!
Andy and I decided to have a date night. I was going to try Hailo, but they failed us. I booked a cab and they confirmed only to call me when they were supposed to be arriving to cancel. So we decided to walk to the main road and hail one, and we were lucky enough to find one. I didn’t realize there was a tree-lighting happening around the corner. Once we were on our way, we tried Red Bones in Somerville. It was pretty good, but I definitely wish I got the steak instead of pulled pork. Oh well, I know better for next time. We also went bar hopping afterwards. Makes me sad the weekend is over, but I’m slowly on my way to 11 days off (PLEASE GET HERE FASTER!).
Loverly couples shot

Super pumped it’s banana bread beer season!
I also darkened my hair a little. Feels more “me”
I had a busy weekend and I’m sad it’s over! I think the only reason I was in a pleasant mood this morning is knowing that I’m going away this weekend (HURRY UP FRIDAY! ). On Friday, Andy and I went to the Phantom Gourment BBQ Beach Party. Oh man, it was awesome! I’m bummed I’ll have to wait another year to re-visit the BBQ masters. Once we were extremely full of beer and BBQ, we rolled ourselves around to various watering holes in the area. I welcomed the opportunity to use an actual bathroom, and not a portapotty (YUCK!).
A friend also had a summer Halloween party, and I was super excited to go! Halloween is my favorite holiday. I actually already thought of a costume for this year, but wondering if I should save it for next year? Thankfully there was enough notice that I was able to think up a costume and order it online. I went as Teen Royalty, Gretchen Weiners. I even wore hoop earrings, TAKE THAT REGINA!
Now for pictures, try not to drool on your keyboard over the BBQ images!
Best pulled pork sandwich, EVER!
This shelia very much enjoyed the shrimp on the barbi
Myself and Aztec Gino. Sorry for the blur, Andy took the picture
I found this giant mac and cheese noodle on the way. How awesome and random is this?!!
Andy wearing my wig with Abe Lincoln’s beard. Apparently honest Abe isn’t honest about having a beard.
G for Gretchen SO FETCH!
Again, sorry for the blur. Andy has many talents, and picture-taking isn’t one. Not even my fancy new camera can help!
Good ol’ Abe Lincoln wearing my wig.
I probably shouldn’t have my flammable costume this close to a fire.
