Hey all! Sorry I’ve been missing you and haven’t blogged in a few weeks. It’s been a fun past 3 weeks though and I’m just now coming up for air!
Hammer and I have had company, lots of visitors, starting the last weekend in June up til this past weekend. And check this, we’ve done and seen a lot of fun stuff thanks to our company! Oh, and kept our house pretty neat and tidy!
Weekend of June 29th: Michael & Carrie visit
One of Bryan’s oldest friend came with his wife to visit us Saturday from Philly for a perfect day of BBQing steak and crabs on our roof deck, music, drinks, and a HOT walk to the Orioles and Yankees game that night. Sadly the Yanks didn’t perform well, but we had the best night.
Sunday morning involved brunch – enough said!
July 4th week: Kelly came to Bmore
Bryan’s sister came Wednesday night and stayed with us through Sunday. I was so, so excited when Kelly told us she could come! It was her first time visiting us here in Baltimore and we did a little bit of everything and took her everywhere! Walked to dinner in Fed Hill, July 4th partner WOD at Crossfit, fireworks on the harbor, Wegmans in Columbia, movies at home, Washington DC for the Natural History museum and lunch, All-America Lacrosse game at Towson University, a walking tour in Fells Point where we hit up a new to us restaurant, gelato place, and a bar with over 100 beers on tap and more bottles than you can imagine, and last but not least – the National Aquarium!
Somehow I managed to take very few pics this weekend… probably because we were having way too much fun! I was sad to see Kelly go Sunday night and Marley was even more bummed!
Tuesday-Thursday of last week I traveled to NYC for work. Talk about a whirlwind! We worked plenty hard and got some great stuff accomplished, but I had a chance to visit the site of the World Trade Centers while I was there and went for a couple runs in Central Park. Can’t beat that!
Friday night we went with a big group from Crossfit to the Orioles game. It turned out to be a good night after pouring all day thankfully. We had dinner at the park – crab mac and cheese hot dog anyone??
This past weekend (July 13-15th): Henry’s first visit!
Saturday this little face made his first appearance in Baltimore.
Henry James is my newest nephew. He decided to come visit and bring his mom, dad, and Gramma along. I was pretty excited for my sister, her husband, and my mom to come – even if it was only for a couple short days.
It was the perfect weekend of just hanging out! Dinner on our rooftop deck again, Django Unchained with everyone piled on the sectional, a trip to the Under Armour Factory store (gotta do it!), and a run with my sister! Perfect weekend – yet again – no pictures!
But boy am I’m tired now. Visitors and traveling for work all while the heat and humidity has been cranking here in Baltimore. I’m beat – I don’t know about you, but I’ve been snoozing my alarm a lot lately!
What have you all been up to? Oh, and this week was officially Week 1 of my marathon training! (Oy!)
