Today is quite the special day. Ten years ago, I married my best friend. And it’s safe to say that I am damn lucky! Mal is truly the greatest partner, and there’s no other wonderful (and kind of weird) person I’d rather spend my life with. We recently got to celebrate this milestone when we were in Oregon last week. We took advantage of our very kind family, who watched Quinn overnight, and took a…

Celebrating 9 years of marriage with Mal was a lot of fun! I was up and at ’em taking the 5:15 AM class at CrossFit, so I swung by Coffee Shack on the way home to get Mal and me a couple of iced coffees to kick off our special day! I went with French toast iced coffee and got Mal a “plain” (not “regular”) iced coffee with a shot of espresso. Fun side note: Around here,…

Hi, guys! Happy Sunday! Just wanted to check-in and say ‘hello’ since I haven’t blogged since Wednesday. Holy cow. I’m pretty sure that’s the longest CNC has gone without a new post. I took a few days off to relax and unwind with my family during the Thanksgiving holiday, and, man, it was much-needed and so, so, so nice. Anyway, I just wanted to share what we’ve been up to since last Thursday! Thanksgiving partner…

Hi, guys! So, Mal and I sort of celebrated 7 years of marriage yesterday. We didn’t have big plans because we just got back from Oregon and we have another vacation coming up in August, so we decided to keep things low-key this year. We did, however, agree to buy each other “traditional” wedding gifts just for the fun of it. Seven years is copper, so we planned to get each other something made from it. It was…

Six years ago today, I married my best friend, who also just happens to be a handsome devil. Lucky me! To celebrate our anniversary, Mal and I got all dressed up this afternoon, left Q with his Mimi and Papi, and went out to lunch together. Last week, the nice folks from Caffe Tosca invited me to lunch, so I took them up on their offer. A leisurely lunch on a beautiful day was a great way to celebrate six years…

Mal and I had a wonderful 5-year anniversary celebration on Friday night. We went into Boston for dinner, which was followed by a sunset cruise, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Dinner was at Anthem in Faneuil Hall, which was just a short walk from Long Wharf where we needed to go for the sunset cruise. Mal and I went to dinner with some friends at Anthem last winter and really loved their menu, so we…

Originally posted July 12, 2009 Today is officially our 1-year wedding anniversary! Happy anniversary to us! I saved the best recap for last: wedding cake! I absolutely loved our wedding cake! It had 4 layers, each with a different cake + frosting combination: Top layer: Carrot Cake (of course!) 2nd layer: White cake with vanilla and mocha buttercream filling 3rd layer: Chocolate cake with hazelnut buttercream and chocolate truffle filling Bottom layer: Lemon-Strawberry cake combo…

Originally posted July 10, 2009 Immediately following the ceremony, our reception was held at the Sky Meadow Country Club in Nashua, New Hampshire. It was such a gorgeous place to have a reception! The ballroom had high ceiling to floor windows, a fieldstone fireplace, and large dance floor, which was rarely empty at the reception. The ballroom overlooked a beautifully landscaped “Bridal Garden” and an 18-hole golf course. (Mal was pretty excited about that last…

Originally posted July 9, 2009 Our wedding ceremony took place in our hometown at our church. Both of our families have belonged to this same parish for as long as we can both remember. Our families actually sit on opposite sides of the church, so during the ceremony, our priest joked that he was marrying the Montagues and Capulets! We had beautiful, sunny weather on our wedding day, but it was 85 degrees and humid,…

Originally posted July 9, 2009 I was planning to blog about dinner tonight, but I decided a wedding recap would be much more enjoyable! Can you believe that Mal and I got married almost a year ago on July 12, 2008? I can’t believe how much time has passed already! Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s been a wonderful year, and I am so excited to celebrate with my hubby! Since we’ll be spending…
