Drink up baby, stay up all night

Yay for the weekend and upcoming holidays!  We’re kicking off the season of celebration tonight with our annual (day after) Beaujolais Nouveau Day party.  Cheap wine and lots of cheese are my idea of a perfect night, and I definitely look forward to this one all year long.  Here are a few photos from past celebrations.  While its a great night for cheap wine, I tend to get a little carried away with the cheeses.

  • Photos from last year’s Beaujolais Nouveau Party 2013
  • A selection of cheeses from our party in 2012
  • The first Beaujolais party back when I still had roommates back in 2009

Hope you have a great weekend!

Wanderings: Hoboken

DSC_0378

Earlier this month we had a chance to visit Hoboken for a family event and we were excited for a chance to explore the city on the other side of the Hudson.  It was windy and drizzly during our stay, but we had a few great meals, visited some beautiful homes, and I was surprised by how much certain streets reminded me of Brooklyn.  Our visit was ever so brief, but now that we have family in the area we’re looking forward to getting to know Hoboken better.

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Winter has been moving in this week, which can be so hard after the loveliness of summer and fall.  This year I’m trying to find ways to appreciate the colder season, instead of being taken over by the winter blues like last year.  I’m planning to cozy up inside with warm blankets, a steaming mug of tea, and maybe make a dent in my Netflix queue.  There’s an entire series of House Hunters International with my name written all over it.

Hope you have a great weekend!
