Let's play catch up

So I've been a bad blogger - haven't been on for awhile... Here are some photos to catch you up on what's been going on:

I've made crêpes a few times the past couple of months :)

Beautiful fall....

...complete with a beautiful mocha :)

A Ramos Gin Fizz - so tasty!

Yes, this tree is *in* my office building on the 4th floor 

More fall

And more fall...

And still more fall :)

I went to a local pub to watch the Carrier Classic (UNC's opening game of the season) with the Alumni Group

Christmas lights!

One of my new favorite food trucks - it's over near Chinatown

Chicken sandwich with chicken chips (they take the skin and dry it out so it's crispy like bacon)

BBQ pork taco - only $3 and it's AMAZING

Can't make a morning much better than this - mocha + free Christmas song

There's an app for that! You point your phone at the characters on your coffee cup and then it animates them!

PETER PAN!!!!!!!

Inside - I found out shortly after this picture was taken that photos are against the was such a gorgeous and fun set! The white screen on the top went 360 degrees and projected scenes like the characters were flying through the air or swimming in the water - too cool!

Skyping with the fam on Thanksgiving - aren't they gorgeous?!

On a walk with Adanna around Harvard Square

Thought of you, Dad, when I saw this beauty :)

Diesel cafe - bar none the best mocha I've ever tasted

Aldo and Cullen - the birthday boys!

Probably one of my favorite pictures ever... I call it 'The Confused Birthday Unicorn"

This is the 30 foot Christmas tree on the Macy's roof

My first experience with escargot (nope, didn't have it in all that time I was in France, believe it or not!).... I went with Daron to a fondue restaurant that featured a 10-course tasting menu and this was one of the courses... I only ended up having one escargot - you just have to not think about it while you're chewing...ick.

Daron went out to Best Buy on Black Friday and found the ENTIRE Friends series for only $9/season!!!! I got them all... :-D

There was a tree lighting ceremony in the Boston Commons and this is the actual lighting (complete with fireworks)

Sunset over the city - love it here :)

My EP family went to Sunday Brunch at East by Northeast and it was a Dim Sum Brunch. First course - edamame with a lime sauce and scallions

Scallion pancake sandwich, fried egg, house cured pancetta, and an apple butter dipping sauce 

Rice noodle hash, potatoes, fresh garlic sausage, egg, butternut squash, sweet bean sauce

Aww we're so cute - Kyla (1 year at Connect), Erik (EP graduate), me (6 months at Connect), and Adam (1.5 months at Connect)

We were walking back from brunch and happened upon a travel agency (did you know they still have those?) complete with model airplanes, faded flags from countries around the world, a computer that looked like it was straight from 1995, and - get ready for this - a typewriter! This place looked like it was from the wrong decade and it was great!

Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake I get when I go home for Christmas...but only if I'm good! ;-) Dad made this and it looks SPECTACULAR!

Christmas baking!

I quadrupled the recipe.... French Breakfast Muffins!

Finished product!

So yep, that's a sampling of the fun stuff I've been up to for the past month. I can't wait to go home for Christmas!!!!!
