laces out

the streak is over. I finally managed to make a good batch of cookies. And these are damn good cookies if I do say so myself. :) After many, many years of failed attempts at baking(you actually have to measure - shocking) I bought all fresh ingredients and went to work on's 'outrageous cookies'. I added some craisins just for fun and they were a great addition. Dave usually calls my cookies 'sugar bread' - but these actually turned out good.

The rest of the day was spent watching football - Mellow was rooting for Peyton.

M&M's beautiful wedding

This weekend Dave and I drove(dont recommend that form of travel btw) to Winston-Salem, NC to attend our friends' wedding. It was one of the most beautiful weddings we've attended and it was great to see all our friends again. One thing I learned - aside from that our backup QB isnt very good - is that it's difficult to take pictures when you're drunk. Good to know.

Here's a few I tried to salvage. Focus was my main problem....shocking.

Labor Day weekend in DC

Dave and I flew home to my parents home in Frederick, MD to catch up with friends and family, eat some great bluefin crabs, drink fantastic wine, and drive around the NOVA and DC area checking out possible places to move eventually. We had the most beautiful weather and learned a lot about what we want/dont want in a place to move. It was great seeing Christina and Pat - why did we think it was a good idea to go in the pool? :)

Here are some pics from our trip! My parents new kitchen that's only taken them 2 years to finish...shots of their garden and horses, and the mountain:
