New York Hot Bagels

We decided we better start trying out all the restaurants around the hospital. New York Hot Bagels is located very close, and was another great bagel place. There seem to be a lot of those around here. And they are open super early, so I may even be able to go before I go to work in the morning.

My Favorite Things (Sound of Music, anyone?)

Recently I was thinking about things that make me happy. Material things mostly. There are a lot of non-material things as well, but this list is those physical things that you can feel and touch. The things that can bring a smile to my face anytime....
  • Sending and Receiving Mail
  • Coca-Cola classic (this transferred to me from Brian)
  • Reading good books
  • Pan-fried popcorn
  • Making chocolate chip cookies
  • Buying and using new kitchen gadgets and spices
  • Watching my kitten and puppy “play”
  • Needlepointing, quilting, and other crafts
  • Going camping
  • Limonata
  • Genealogy
  • A really good pen
  • Black Cherry Soap (Especially in rest stops!!)
  • Rewatching good old movies
  • Butterfingers & Reese cups
  • Making lists

Newark Winterfest & Saengerbund

We finally attended a Second annual event in our still-new home of Newark. We made it on time to see the Christmas tree lit this year, and again enjoyed the free cookies and hot chocolate. It was still so nice out though, that it didn't really feel like winterfest.

The following day it finally SNOWED and snowed. It eventually stuck to the ground, but was mostly gone by the next morning. It was pretty exciting though.

We also got in the holiday mood by going to the Delaware Saengerbund Christmas concert. The lure of German cookies (more free cookies) and coffee got Brian there as well.

Sugar Rush

A cute new cafe opened in Newark. We visited Sugar Rush after church a few Sunday's ago. I went for the loaded baked potatoes, and was delighted that they also had lemonata available to drink. Brian really liked the cannoli he had for desert. I think he's even gone back for more since.

Getting Ready For Baby

We brought back my bassinet at Thanksgiving. All the kids in my family used this one. I'll probably try to get around to making a new cover though-with less lace. My sewing pile is a little overwhelming right now though, so no guarantees.

Megan made these super cute shower invitations. We finally registered a few places... I think Brian is pickier about things than me.
