OSU Game

The game was made for us when Emily started yelling O-H O-H O-H after the first drive that led to a touchdown. Who cares if we lost, Emily is still cute!

Post It Notes

I love post it notes. I'm looking at one right now on the side of my computer that I wish I could scan and post. It's got numbers all over it, and I think some are phone numbers, and some are numbers about my car, and the others are numbers related to some transaction at work. It's in three different color inks, and written in different directions. I am keeping the note because I'm pretty sure that one of the numbers is important, but I don't know which one!

This weekend was great! It has been really warm here (as is most of the rest of the country), so we spent most of our weekend outdoors. Friday night we went to the Friday Fest in downtown Ft Pierce, and I wish that they would move it out of the park and back to the river front because it's roomier, easy to navigate and the bugs aren't as bad! Saturday, Miss Emily came home and we had a lovely steak dinner. Sunday, we crammed an entire summer day into a few hours complete with breakfast on the beach, playing in the park, and then the afternoon at the ocean building sandcastles and watching the kite surfers. Those guys are crazy! We ended the evening at a local dive eating hamburgers under the stars and listening to motorcycles and the band. We taught Emily to tell all the Gator fans O-H and everyone was pretty good humored about it.

Big game tonight - Go BUCKS

Florida in January

Maybe it's because I just got back from the desolate gray of NorthEast Ohio, but the Treasure Coast sure proved it's name today!

I had lunch at my favorite "splurge" spot called PB Cobb. It sits right on the Intercoastal waterway and when you sit outside, you sit next to the million dollar yachts. I had their speciality cobb salad with blue cheese dressing and read the first few pages of Anna Karenina. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing and they had an old Jimmy Buffet concert from Riverbend in Cincinnati, OH playing in the background.

It's really hard to be back in the office right now. Living in Florida just isn't the same as visiting...

The Proof is in the Pictures

As mentioned in Kristen's blog, all of the pictures from our trip to Cleveland on the 29th were magically erased. Somehow, Anne got ahold of few, but my face is still a mystery! We made it home from our pilgrimage to Ohio, and pretty unscathed. Boring details follow...

After a very uneventful 19 hour drive (which was pretty amazing considering it rained the entire time, got progressively colder, and we were traveling with a 2 year old and a Golden Retriever) - we arrived at our destination (Jefferson, OH) at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Saturday night. Saturday night was spent visiting the family and then visiting some friends and the Galley and then Jefferson Lanes - that's right folks, the bowling alley is the only bar in town these days I guess!

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were reserved for some last minute shopping, wrapping and then an EXPLOSION of gifts on Christmas morning. So many gifts in fact, that Emily needed a breakfast break AND a nap!

The next few days were kind of a blur, as most of the mid-week is during a vacation. Some shopping, some eating, some napping, some visiting with friends and family (including a lovely dinner of wings and beer with Mike, Karen and Otto).

And suddenly, we were down to the last 2 days of our trip. We spent the first night in Cleveland with the lovely Kristen and her midget boyfriend Ray, who failed to mention the story of her telling off the girl wearing the headband on her forehead. I was not really embarrassed as much as I was scared of getting shot or chased onto Lee Rd. The evening ended with some fried food and organic Oreo's and milk.

Saturday night, we went out to dinner with the family and then to a garage party with some of Jeremy's high school buddies. I find it hard to believe that Friday night I hung out with some folks that I only knew in passing and had a hard time fitting a word in edgewise and Saturday night I hung out with people that I've known for a few years and Jeremy has known his entire life, and was bored within an hour. I guess discussing high school in great depth is only fun if you were actually THERE.

After some homemade French toast, we hit the road again sans child. She will return with PaPa on Saturday night so our bachelor days continue for a few more. We managed to find a random party in St George, SC and if I get motivated, I'll make that into a post of itself.

Anyway, thanks for the lovely gifts and the lovely hosting of our bodies over the last 10 days - but I sure am glad to be back in sandals and my own bed!

Happy New Year

And Michigan still sucks! WOOT
