Wah. I’m so sad that our Cape vacation is over. The week went by much too quickly, but at least it had a sweet ending. Before Erin and Mike left to head home, we stopped by the Cape Cod Creamery for some ice cream. We treated the pugs to some soft serve, which seemed like an ice cream eating contest as soon as we gave it to them. They chowed it down like mad dogs….

Who knew Cape Cod produced such tasty wine? I definitely didn’t. This was a nice, little discovery when I visited the Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod with my family yesterday afternoon. Apparently, sandy soil, warm ocean breezes, and a temperate climate combine to produce some quality wine-making grapes.   The Truro Vineyards grow Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot on their 5-acre farm. They also source grapes from vineyards in Massachusetts, New York, and California, which…

Hi, there! Just checking in with a quick blog post while everyone gets ready to go out for ice cream. (As you can see, I’ve mastered speed blogging on this vacation!) After breakfast this morning, my mom, sister, and I headed to the Sandwich Flea Market to do a little shopping. Growing up, the three of us used to hit up flea markets and yard sales all of the time, so it was fun for…

Good morning! 😎 Once again our friend Mike came through big time with his cooking skillz. Last night, he and Mal put together a wonderful family feast for all of us. On the menu: homemade lasagna with garlic bread and salad. While the guys worked hard in the kitchen, the ladies played Yahtzee and relaxed on the couch. Yay, vacation. It was a truly delicious dinner. Isn’t homemade lasagne and garlic bread the best?! My…

We just finished an intense game of badminton, so now everyone is showering and getting ready for dinner, so I figured I’d throw together a quick post with today’s highlights. Here’s my favorite photo of the day: It’s not everyday that you get to ride a huge metal gorilla with your husband! Today, we also visited the Scargo Tower, which was much smaller in person than I expected, but it was still a cool landmark…

Wow, what a race! Who knew the Falmouth Road Race was such a party?!? Sunday morning, I met the New Balance folks bright and early at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel (where the media retreat was held) to board a special trolley that would take us to the start line of the race at Woods Hole. (The race provides buses from Falmouth to the start.)   The trolley took back roads to Woods Hole, so…

Last night was ridiculously fun. The five of us sat around all night, played card games, and laughed a lot. There was also some drinking. Eating. Doggie shenanigans. And people shenanigans that took place. Not surprisingly, the house was pretty quiet this morning, which meant it was the perfect time for me to get some blogging done and catch up on emails. I love the quiet hours of the morning. I’m always a zillion times…

What a beautiful day for some sightseeing on Cape Cod! Not. (I’m so happy to be home right now. A hot shower and dry clothes never felt so good!) Breakfast Since the weather forecast called for rain, we all decided to sleep in and then make a big ol’ breakfast together this morning. 5 humans + 2 dogs = madness in the kitchen.   My breakfast included a veggie scramble with crumbled feta, a slice…

Hellooo! Long time, no blog! The last couple of days have been really busy for me, so I haven’t had time to blog, but the good news is that I have lots to tell you guys about my adventures with New Balance and the Falmouth Road Race, but they will have to wait until tomorrow when I have more time to put together a post. Plus, there’s a hot game of Yahtzee next on the agenda! Late this…

Oh, Cape traffic. It never ceases to amaze me. Somehow, it took us five hours to get to our rental on the Cape! We made a few stops along the way, but jeeezzz… isn’t that crazy?! Around 12:30 this afternoon, my mom and sister arrived at our house to pick up Murphy and me, so we could all carpool together to the Cape. (Mal has a bachelor party tonight and tomorrow, so he’s coming down…
