The Next/Best Two Weeks


This coming week we will be celebrating Beaner’s 25th birthday (wow, am I really that old!) with cake on her birthday and then traditional overeating at her favorite Italian restaurant a couple of days later when her sister gets home.


Tomorrow we are hosting a brunch for all 9 of her college housemates who are coming to help celebrate with her this weekend.  Over the years we have become very close to all of them and they feel like 9 bonus daughters.


We are also squeezing in a celebration for Peachie’s huge job promotion and Beaner’s boyfriend’s admittance into medical school.


Then, of course, all the food, family and friends that are our 4 day Christmas tradition of non-stop eating.


I am also looking a little bit forward because the following week I am going to New York City for this:




I scored great seats to her Broadway debut and I will be drooling.


But then I heard that this will also be in town:

So I will be going from the theater to this art installation (if my ‘weak in the knees’ legs will hold me)   


Afterward I will be eating here:

I can’t believe the first American Nutella Cafe opened in NYC just in time for me!


And hopefully we will have good enough weather to enjoy the amazing holiday windows on 5th Avenue




Although we will try to avoid the disaster that is happening at Trump Tower


And, as if all that weren’t enough, Martha and I are getting married the following day, which will be it’s own blogpost I’m sure.  Yes. Married. As in Legally Wedded!


So if you don’t hear from me in the next couple of weeks, know that I am busy enjoying a two week orgasmic experience of food and friends and family and Cate and my favorite city and Martha.  

It might be the best two weeks of my life.

  3. I'm so happy for you all! This sounds absolutely brilliant.

    A happy birthday to your Beaner.
    Break a leg to Cate.
    Nutella cafe? Mmmmmm.
    The windows are my favourite thing. (And I went looking at past years' online.)

    And many congratulations to you and Martha on your wedding! May you share many more years of love together. I wish you every good thing there is to be wished for you & Martha & your girls.

    Love!

  7. Oh my!!! What a time you are going to have:) And leaving the best till last you sneaky thing. Many, many congratulations to all concerned, and especially on your forthcoming marriage. How exciting. And New York and Shows too. You certainly know how to celebrate. I wish you all the fun in the world and deep happiness in your nuptials. I would ask for photos but that is perhaps far too personal, but I cannot help being interested. I will content myself with being a virtual fly on the wall and picking up scraps of happiness (and food!) that way. Big hugs.

  9. Our biggest fear is that marriage will change anything, as we have had a pretty successful relationship without it. Here's hoping.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
