Married life, home projects, music, travel, movies, politics, random stuff I think of on a daily basis

Andrew’s birthday September 30, 2007

Filed under: Family — erinp @ 10:25 pm

We celebrated Andrew’s 26th birthday last night (actual birthday is Oct. 3) and it was so much fun.  We were laughing so hard all night and the food everyone (Chad and my Mom) made was delicious.

The birthday boy and his ice cream cake my mom made.  I honestly couldn’t keep track of everything that was in it but I know there was cookie crust, peanut butter ice cream, and chocolate chips, among other things.  Heavenly.


One Year Anniversary! September 28, 2007

Of when we made settlement on our house!  What a cute and quirky house we have. 

In one year we’ve made some changes, as you can see throughout the blog.  Owning a house is tiring! But I can’t believe how fast this year went.  That must be a good thing 🙂

Today was a great day to go to Sippin by the River at Penn’s Landing to support Crohn’s disease …and Star Cellars.  I went with a few of my friends to sample local beers and wines while Matt was working and pouring Star Cellars’ wines and sakes.  By the middle of the day, word had spread among the thousands of people there that theirs were the wines to try and the line just kept on growing.

Anita and me:

Matt and me.  I am wearing my Phillies hat because there were too many Eagles jerseys popping up all over the place.


The best music collection ever

My Dad gave me yet another box of music from their house and I must say that this is the best one yet:

Right? Who remembers this one:

Or, even better (and please notice the Nelson twins):

Who can name all of the celebrity cameos?

Just a couple in my greatest hits collection.

I have been constantly amazed by the produce we’ve gotten from the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) group we joined this summer.  Just look at these carrots!

New Windows! September 12, 2007

Filed under: Home and Garden — erinp @ 11:56 pm

We had new windows installed on Monday (thanks, wedding money!).  Our old windows on the first floor were original to the house, we think, which means they were about 87 years old!  Matt took some “before” pictures:

Gross!(Notice how they were chain-hung?)

And here are the after pictures!  This was before I started cleaning the smudges and fingerprints off:

Now we can open all of our windows, they all have screens, and they aren’t disgusting!
