Lobster, Cupcakes, Georges Island, Newport Vineyard

20130922-204305.jpgI’ve been a slacker lately. I’ve been taking pictures and archiving them online, but not great at blogging about things.

I’m doing a photo phone dump.

A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make lobster, so we ordered a big pot and got lobsters from the grocery store.

It was super easy to make!20130922-195721.jpg
My friend Joanna had her baby girl. Tonya and I went to visit her, so cute!20130922-195752.jpg
I made strawberry cupcakes and used these cute carriers that I’ve had for a long time.
20130922-195811.jpgOn Labor Day Weekend, we went to Newport, Rhode Island for brunch, a walk along the cliff walk, and to the winery. 20130922-201131.jpgWe just happened to drive by so we stopped at Newport Vineyard. 20130922-201149.jpg
Every Saturday during the summer, there’s a craft market along the Greenway. One Saturday morning, I hit the market when I tagged along with Tony to the city for him to give guitar lessons. I bought 2 pairs of earrings from this vendor. 20130922-201220.jpg
We then took the ferry to one of the Boston Harbor Islands, Georges.20130922-201230.jpg
It’s a small island that was used as a military base in the civil war. There was a small festival going on.20130922-201303.jpgYou can see Boston in the background (and my new earrings).20130922-201310.jpg
We walked around, listened to music, watched people try to skip rocks.20130922-201322.jpg
And I brought cupcakes that I bought the night before from Crumbs Bakery near South Station20130922-201330.jpg
I got a crock pot and we’ve used it every Sunday since- chicken tacos, beef stroganoff, and had chili tonight. 20130922-201337.jpgI went on a brunch cruise last Sunday on the Boston Odyssey.20130922-201351.jpgI brought Marissa with me. We hadn’t seen each other in months!20130922-201402.jpg
We checked out this little Mexican restaurant in Waltham (just a few minutes from Belmont) and the chicken tacos were amazing.20130922-201415.jpgI did some baking, while…..20130922-201423.jpgTony tried to replicate the tacos using the crockpot. They were pretty good!20130922-201437.jpg
We had our company summer outing a few weeks ago and we took the water taxis from work. The Queen Mary 2 was docked at the cruise port. 20130922-201451.jpg
We then had dinner and a casino night where we got to learn how to play craps. 20130922-201500.jpg
I still need to post picture from the fireworks and I also took more pictures on the boat cruise that I want to share.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
