So it's been awhile since I've visited. I'm the worst, I know. I was pleasantly surprised to come back to some very nice new comments, though. So thank you!
As far as what I've been doing, well...lots of things! Johnny's 30th(!) birthday was last week and we managed to pull off an awesome backyard affair complete with tents, a dancefloor, DJs, lights and a fog machine! And the biggest feat of all- the cops didn't show up until 3am. Apparently our fog had created a serious mist over all of Lower Allston and the neighbors were scared. I was too busy playing hostess to take any pictures during the party but I do have a few from the sad aftermath.
I think the true mark of a successful party has to be finding someone's BRA in your yard the morning after, no?
Alsooo, after being lost somewhere in the Boston area for over a week, my big gift for Johnny finally arrived on Tuesday (thanks, FedEx) and we are now finally fufilling our dream of brewing our own beer! I got him a complete homebrewing system and a recipe kit to make his favorite style of beer so in a couple of weeks we hope to be enjoying a few bottles of Belgian White Ale. Now our real dream is to make both our own beer and our own cheese, but I figure it's best to start slowly.
