    2012 New Years Eve

    Happy (almost) New Year’s Eve!!! Mal and I are getting pretty pumped to ring in 2013.

Breakfast After I fed Murphy, I made my own breakfast, which was an egg and cheese sandwich on a Microwaveable […]



    Yesterday afternoon, Mal and I enjoyed a delicious and very indulgent meal at Max Brenner in Boston. We left with full bellies, big smiles, and agreeing that we must visit again. Awhile back, I was invited to attend a media event at Max Brenner to try their new menu, but, unfortunately, I was unable to […]
