I had a very busy vacation. I saw a bunch of movies. I went to MD to pick up my mom's '99 Maxima for my very own. Thanks Mom and Dad! I haven't had a car in 11 years. But with Double Trouble on the way, we've got to have some easy transportation. While in MD, I hung out with a friend from junior high and high school who I hadn't seen in 13 years. Thanks Facebook!
SHR and I looked at some strollers and car seats. Doubt we'll buy this one but how can I turn down anything with this color scheme?
Other vacation stuff:
SHR and I went to the Whitney. We were underwhelmed by the Calder stuff but loved the Eggleston exhibit. My favorite kind of art is photography that mixes photojournalism with an artist's eye. Not to mention I love Memphis! I want to get a framed print of this famous photo for Double Trouble's room.
Mitch and I went to see Black Watch at St. Ann's. For the most part, I usually see one play a year. This did not disappoint. There are moments of sheer poetry in this play. I can't believe I actually just wrote that.
We went to Jersey twice. In this picture, I was showing the Buddha a movie of her and the Peanut.

On Boxing Day, we went to Philadelphia for the first annual Second Thanksgiving celebration. Jason and Brian checked in on the turkey.
New Year's Day means only one thing - Board Game Party at Balgavy's! Nothing gets the year started right better than a little Tumblin Dice.
We even had some time to get to Rutt's Hut for some dogs as well as Trenton for some pizza.
On one of our many hours spent in the car over the break, SHR commented that I looked like Steven Spielberg. Yikes. Not sure how I feel about that but I do know that it is time to get a new winter jacket.

In the next week or so, I hope to post movies of the Board Game Party, the two trips to Jersey, and the Boxing Day feast in Philly.
In the meantime, check here for some Balgavy pics of the Board Game Party
And check my movie blog. It will be busy.
