A Happy President’s Day to all of you! For those of you that had the day off, hope you had a relaxing day and for those that didn’t hope you all had a relaxing day at work. 🙂 I was fortunate to have this day off… so my mom and I decided to play around in the kitchen. [Read more…]
On Sunday everyone woke up around 8am again and convened at our kitchen table to read the newspaper, continue chatting, drinking coffee and munching a little bit on the apricot biscotti my mom made the night earlier – but not too much since we had big brunch plans at 11am! [Read more…]
This weekend we had some very important out-of-town guests, some members of Tommy’s immediate family! His parents, older sister and husband, and younger sister came from Maine to visit us and see our new house. We were so happy to host them and had such a fun time with them – please come out again and again Comeau family. 🙂 [Read more…]
Hi all, hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Just wanted to let you know that my posts may be a little sporadic this week. My grandmother passed away last night so I will be heading out west to Palm Springs to handle everything that this entails.
Yesterday Tommy and I hosted our friends Kerry and Marcus for brunch. We hadn’t seen them in a couple of months so it was wonderful to catch up with them. So many new developments! [Read more…]
On Saturday night, Tommy and I were treated to dinner at my friend Tammy’s house. She and our friend Miki had graciously agreed (after my asking 🙂 to host and cook a dinner for a few of us. Those in attendance were Tommy, Tammy, her boyfriend, Miki, her husband, and me. It was all so good! [Read more…]
My most favorite breakfast food in the entire world are the cottage cheese pancakes my mom or dad make. (This is saying a lot for a person that generally doesn’t really like breakfasty food). As a child, I remember always looking forward to the weekend specifically because I knew mom or dad would be whipping up these bad boys for our Saturday morning breakfast. [Read more…]
I cannot write anything without saying that my deepest thoughts and sympathies are with all of those effected by the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. My heart keeps breaking. I know those precious babies and educators lost are angels up in heaven now. Peace be with everyone.
As mentioned before, every year since 2006 when I moved to D.C., I have always hosted a holiday party in some fashion.
My co-hosts may have been different – in 2006 when I lived with two roommates I convinced them how fun it would be to have a party in our apartment and then beginning in 2007 – when Tommy and I moved in together – we began hosting annual holiday parties. My brother lived with us in 2007 & 2008 so he joined in on the co-hosting Christmas spirit as well those years. It is a tradition that we, our friends, and family look forward to and one that I hope to keep continuing for many, many years to come. [Read more…]
This week’s Tuesday Tidbits is devoted to all the things I am excited to do this holiday season!
1. Our annual holiday party. Ever since we moved to D.C. in 2006 we have always hosted some kind of holiday party in December. This year is no different, though we are trying something new this year. Instead of hosting it at our place as we always have, we are renting a portion of a restaurant for our party this year. Can’t wait! [Read more…]
