New Blog

Hi - as I have started a new chapter in my life I have started a new blog... check it out Rockin' on the Road...

Monday, March 22, 2010


This past weekend was beautiful and I enjoyed every minute of it. Friday, Lindsey got me out of the office (didn't eat at my desk) and we sat in the stadium, ate salads, enjoyed the sun and talked shop. By far this has been my favorite moment at the stadium.

Friday evening - Chris went and chipped around on the hole outside our house, I chilled with a glass of wine - a beautiful evening.

Saturday we had a quick impromptu BBQ - featuring my new steak burgers (huge hit)! New friends, spring in the air - life is good. Sunday Chris and I took the top off the jeep and took a drive through the Hampton's, visited a friend and hit up the wineries.


St. Patric'ks Day!!! My favorite holiday. Chris and I were invited to the biggest party in Town - the Forkin party. Tuesday night Chris meet me in the city. We went to an Irish pub next to the apartment and drank Forkin beers and some great Irish food.

Wednesday morning we woke up bright and early for the parade - put on our Irish green and headed out. First stop breakfast - if you know me you know I love and have to have breakfast. Then over to get Chris a new phone he broke his. After we were all settled we meet up with the Forkin clan. Upon arrival Forkin beers were in hand and we were enjoying this beautiful day.

Lunch was even better - corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potato's and Irish soda bread (I had 2 plates don't judge). The afternoon started to wrap up and I thought we were getting ready to head home. Nope I was wrong we ended up at johnny rockets. Next thing I know Chris and Jeff are on a mechanical bull. The stamp Chris got after he signed his life away.

All and all the best St. Pattys day ever!!!

PS on a side note Chris finally got to eat chipotle - u would of think he died and went to heaven!


Okay I know its been forever since I have blogged. I really don't have a good reason other than life happened and I got into a routine. Ill give some quick recaps ...


Chris and I attended the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Something I always wanted to do and Chris just humors me. We went into the city wed night and watched them blow up all the balloons. After that we went to a bar near the apartment. Around midnight - we started to see all the floats go down 10th avenue. At this point Chris looks at me with a straight face and says "Hey babe, we have seen the balloons and floats do you still want to go to the parade?" I gave him a look as are you serious, he just smiled and says "ill take that as a yes." The next morning we head to meet some friends who gave us the tickets. They also happen to be NYPD so we had a nice police escort to the parade! Who also took us all the way back home on LI (much better than riding the train). The parade was awesome and I loved it, I'm not sure Chris was as excited as I was but he hung in there for me.

I'm sure your wondering if I still cooked Thanksgiving dinner. Of course I did - check it out, yes that is a 14lb turkey for just the two of us.

The huge debate for us was do we decorate for Christmas or no? We were going back to Texas for the holidays. Well this was one battle I won and we decorated.

Back to Texas for the holidays .... Is exhausting. If you know me, you know I'm a planner and will plan every last minute! I have learned my lesson and will never do that again. I can say I did have the time of my life seeing friends and family - next time I will slow down a bit.
I left on Friday, December 18 to Texas to start out on a wine tour with some of my girls. It was perfect and a blast.

At our home Chris was leaving on Monday - poor Chris he was there for the blizzard and 18" of snow. At one point we didn't think he was going to make it to Texas - but he did :). We spend the rest of the week spending time with friends and family. Wish we had more time with them.

Welcome 2010...
Chris and I rang in the New Year with our new NY Long Island friends. We had a great time at Ray's house and I learned to play flip cup. Check it out, I even beat Chris in a one on one 6 cup flip cup challenge.

Our usually January for us, Chris travels a lot and I work. This year we did meet up in Vegas with our friends Keith and Katherine. We had a blast hanging out gambling. The boys even surprised us with a day at the spa and a show. Katherine and I have mastered craps and the slot machine sex and the city. (We didn't take one picture - bad)


Was pretty calm, cold and lots of snow. I did get to make my first snow angel, snowman and threw snowballs. I had a blast!
