Granite countertops in transition

November 26, 2008 Leave a comment

Today, we’re having the granite countertops installed so I thought I’d post some pictures of the transition because they’re still in the process of prepping the counters and sink area. It’s looking really ugly. We decided to have the backsplash tiles taken out as well and probably won’t get those replaced next week. So we’ll be in transition for a little bit.

So much for everything being ready by Turkey Day 🙂




Camera for aspiring architect

November 24, 2008 Leave a comment

For Christmas, my brother is shopping around for a professional camera for his girlfriend who’s an aspiring architect in the Boston area. He asked for some ideas and I told him that a digital SLR from Nikon is probably the best choice. The d70 to d300 Nikon cameras are pretty good semi-professional cameras without getting into the pricier and more professional range of the D2 and D3s. Once he’s got the camera body out of the way, she will probably still need to purchase some pretty good lenses (they have some that are specifically made for architectural purposes) and a tripod for those still shots. I wonder what his final decision will be.

Belated election day post

November 22, 2008 Leave a comment

This election day, November 4th, was the first time my husband ever voted so we made a big deal out of it. We both adorned our Obama t-shirts (the ones you get for free when you contribute to the campaign). We also hosted an election watch party, serving up appetizers, pizza and drinks in red, white and blue cups. White cups are for independents or unaffiliated. Although our house was a blue one, we had guests who did drink out of the red cups 🙂


Pregnancy pictures

Alot of my posts have been about food. Maybe it’s because my belly is such a big focus in my life right now.

Since some folks have asked for photos, here are a few, captured weeks ago by my husband.

Currently, I’m 28 weeks along in the pregnancy. The due date is January 18th but I’m secretly hoping for a New Year’s Eve baby (I’ll be considered full term by then). My husband and I are keeping the baby’s gender a surprise. We want to hear the doctor say: “It’s a…” boy/girl, just like in the olden days.

Because we’re getting so much feedback from family, friends and strangers, we’re seriously thinking about starting a competitive pool for the baby’s gender and date of birth. Even the homeless person who hangs out by my office had an opinion: he thinks the baby will be a boy.
