football sunday.

Lobsterman and I have gotten way into watching the 49ers play every Sunday. Or rather, I've gotten into it - since he has always been a fan. Now that my sister is a San Fran resident, I feel an even stronger inclination towards the city.

Rather than eat wings and greasy crap on Sundays during the game, we make things like crabcakes.

Freshly picked of course.

mistletoe hung where you can see.

I am absurdly excited about the upcoming holidays. probably because i am so excited to decorate my apartment. i just ordered felt mistletoe. i have issues.

i was lucky enough to attend a very magical wedding over the long weekend. the couple was married under this gorgeous apple tree.

as far as wedding venues go, this is hard to beat.

on sunday night we had a final farewell to the summer by cooking out on my "in-laws" farm. the sky was magical. i'm so lucky i get to see sunsets like this so often.

apples and pocket holes.

I was going to write a post about apple picking but instead I am going to talk about Lobsterman's penchant for losing things.

He has lost his wallet, license, car keys and a variety of other items of importance about a million times since I've met him. This is not an exaggeration. He's lost items everywhere from a movie theater to the White Mountains. I know this because somehow someone always finds his lost item and mails it back to us. So odd.

So when I looked at this picture closely, I noticed something....sticking out of his back pocket. {click on the photo to enlarge} Our apartment key!

I am pretty sure we lost this key on that day. It's obvious to me that the man needs to stop wearing jeans with holes and then perhaps our problems will be solved.

The end.

I can't stop eating pumpkin pastries. It's a problem. I devoured this tray of pumpkin muffins BY MYSELF after deeming them too "burned" to bring to a work function.

A few days later I made a pumpkin loaf. It's pretty much gone. It's a little too soon for me to be gaining holiday weight.

building a lobster trap.

so here's how it goes down.

you get some cagey pieces. you snap them together with metal fasteners. you leave some holes so the lobsters can get in. you put up some meshy things so they can fall in but not get out. you hang bags full of bait.

ta-da! you learned something new today!

woody allen.

i love this movie. have you seen it?

a must see if you're a woody allen fan like me.

finally took my fall boots out of storage and noticed that every single pair has a heel coming apart. apparently i'm hard on my feet.

so i splurged and purchased these for the upcoming season. one allowance.

not a sailor.

but luckily lobsterman and his friends are.

the only terms i know are "keeling" (because it creeps me out when a sailboat keels) and "yar" because it's a famous line from The Philadelphia Story.

ferry rides.

when i head north to see lobsterman, i have to catch a ferry boat. the ride often requires me to sit in a friends car, bags tossed in the back, and just chat away the hour long journey. if i don't have anyone to chat with and i'm forced to sit in a cabin, i usually get seasick.

stop the presses!

COULD IT BE?! My all-time girl crush and boy crush are getting together? This news is even more exciting than B and Jay having a baby! Ahhhhh!

on going meatless.

about two months ago i decided to experiment with going meatless. it's gone pretty well. i haven't noticed a huge change in my body, but the fact that i'm not eating it has made me feel less guilty about all the bad things meat can do to the body. (please note i have slipped up 7 times in the past two months, not too shabby) my biggest fear was that i'd become a "carb loader" and just gorge myself on pasta. that would not be ideal. but instead i've embraced delicious treats like tempeh, tofurkey dogs and even tofu now that i know how to use it!

do you eat meat? are you a vegetarian? have any good recipes to share? here's one i've been using a lot.

the weekend.

hi all.

i had a busy weekend entertaining a close friend.

some highlights:

hiking for four hours and complaining most of it
getting a flat tire and not knowing how to fix it
waiting over an hour so he could eat a lobster at a shack by the sea
dancing the night away
enjoying extra time together after his flight was canceled, then delayed again

what are your plans for this weekend?

the first time i came to maine, i was shocked to see that there was no sand on the beaches. i thought to myself, "self, how do people lay on beaches with rocks in their bum?" turns out it is in fact possible and now i've learned to love these smooth, flat stones more than sand anyday.

something is wrong with me. i should not upload such atrocities.

but the good news, new stuff in the shop!

guess the decade.

soooo this is what i wear when i'm sunning myself. you know, because i like to pretend it's 1985. i feel that would have been my peak year had i not been one years old.

oh well. oh and the suit is for sale. this was meant to be a modeling session but i just...couldn't...take it off.

style icon.

this is mine.

if you don't know who this is, you are now shunned!

who is your style icon?

do you know how to row a boat?

I'm bad at it so I usually just sit back and swap away the deer flies while lobsterman does all the work. That's how I roll.

a perk to living in maine - and living with a lobsterman.

Monday, August 1, 2011


I went out to the island last weekend to see my lobsterman. It. Was. Hot. Out. We tried to seek some refuge by kayaking out to a small island. It wasn't exactly cooler there, but at least we had lobsters and crabs to cook and eat. Yum.

New additions to the etsy shop too - check it!
