I’ll spare you the gory details of my nearly 7-hour long dentist appointment, but let’s just say, I wasn’t a happy camper by the end of it. I do, however, have two beautiful porcelain crowns on my back two molars, so I guess there’s a bright side to the whole ordeal!

I wasn’t able to eat at all during my dentist appointment, so by the time I got home at 5:00 pm, I was beyond starving. I went almost 10 hours without eating and I was cranky! 👿

As soon as I walked in the door, I immediately dug into the leftover chili in the fridge. I heated it up in the microwave, grabbed a piece of corn bread, and sat down for an early dinner.


Food never tasted so good! :mrgreen:


I hadn’t eaten since breakfast, so, of course, I was still hungry after finishing my bowl of chili. There was some leftover pumpkin cheesecake from our friends, so I dug into that too.


I didn’t even bother with a plate! 😉

Thank goodness for soft food!


After eating an early dinner, Mal, Murphy, and I took a walk around the neighborhood. It was such a nice evening in Boston– cool, crisp, and very autumn-y.


Murphy was so well-behaved on the walk tonight. He’s sort of getting the whole leash thing!


On our walk, we stumbled upon a small Farmers’ Market. We picked up a few goodies for dinner this week.

Our walk continued on for almost an hour. It was nice to spend some quality time with my guys.


Hi, boys! :mrgreen:



I’m spending the rest of my evening catching up with emails and my DVR. My hubby just brought me a mug of warm apple cider to help me with my work. What a guy! 😀


Pizza Dip Recipe

You guys asked for it, so here it is! 😀

In an aluminum tray (or baking pan), spread 16 ounces of cream cheese, and then layer your favorite marinara sauce, pepperoni slices, and top with shredded cheese. Bake at 350* F until cheese is melted, approximately 10-15 minutes. Serve warm with crackers, pita chips, or tortilla chips.

Back to the grind tomorrow! I only have 4 days left of my full-time job, but I still have so much to wrap up! Eek!!!

G’night, blog friends!


  1. Yikes about the dentist!!

    But I’m glad you had a good night afterwards. The pics of Mal and Murphy are too cute 🙂 Good luck with the rest of your work week!

  2. that pic of mal & murphy where murphy is sitting politely waiting to cross the crosswalk made me smile reeeeal big! too cute. he clearly loves his daddy!

    also, 7 hrs. at the dentist!? wow-eeee. talk about miserable. at least you had yummy eats to come home to. 🙂

  3. I, too, had a many-hours long dental appointment just this summer for two crowns. But when my blood sugar drastically dropped, they actually gave me apple juice and sugar-free yogurt (which I normally would never have bought for myself, but beggars can’t be choosers). Aside from the oddity of eating in the middle of a dental appointment, let me tell you — trying to drink apple juice and eat yogurt with a very numb mouth is not a pretty picture!
