Make Way For Madigan!!

Posted by PicasaI had a wonderful birthday last week. We had a delish lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel then did some high end shopping (mostly for Madigan because things fit her!) Then we strolled around the Public Gardens. It was a beautiful day and there were lots of people to watch! Madigan had a wonderful time checking out the Make Way For Ducklings sculpture that is in the park. She just had to sit on each and every duck and have me take a picture of each one. Before we left Boston, we went to my favorite restaurant, Excelsior for one last Cosmo and some of their unbelievable french fries. At home, we enjoyed birthday cake and headed off to bed early exhausted after a long day!

Happy Birthday To Me!

What do Barbara Walters, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Cheryl Tiegs,Heather Locklear, and I all have in common? Today is our birthday!! Some of us definitely look better than others as we age!!!

Unlike most people, I happen to love my birthday and don't mind turning another year old. To celebrate, I am going out to lunch with my Mom, Dad, Sister and Madigan to The Bristol Lounge at the Four Season's Hotel in Boston. Best Cheeseburger you'll ever have! Tomorrow night, the Doc and I are going to dinner at Rocca, a new trendy spot in Boston's Southend. Here's wishing me a Happy Birthday!

Enough Already

Daredevil DAVID BLAINE will hang upside down above New York’s Central Park for three days and two nights.
Is anyone else secretly hoping this does not turn out well for him? This guy is as A$$ and I for one, am sick of all his publicity stunts and "illusions" that he keeps coming up with. Apparently, he could go blind from this stunt because of the pressure of hanging upside down for such a long period of time. I feel bad for all of you New Yorkers who have to walk by him!

NO NO to LiLo

Breaking News: Obama tells Lindsay Lohan thanks but no thanks for your help. There actually is something about Barack Obama that I can agree with; we both think she is a complete train wreck!!! "A top source in the Barack Obama team tells me the actress ''is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us.'' I hope she doesn't turn to a vodka bottle for solice.

Good Things

I love coming to work. We have a nice staff and great patients. Sometimes, the patients even bring us treats to show their appreciation for all we do for them. This week, one of our pregnant gals brought us a nice afternoon snack from The Gingerbread Construction Company. She brought a variety of cookies and a half dozen of their incredible muffins. My pick was the Chocolate Dreme Doesn't it make your mouth water?

She was also thoughtful enough to remember Madigan by bringing her in a very special cookie. I was not sure if she'd eat it, but I knew she'd like the looks of it! Madigan go her own gingerbread girl!

I did not think she would like the gingerbread but she loved it. Now, I have to arrange for anyone who lives near this company to bring us regular deliveries!

2 Hours of My Life I Will Never Get Back

Last night, there were no sports to be watched during primetime hour as both the Red Sox and Patriots had already chalked up their wins for the day. So, we relied on our premium cable package to entertain us. It was 8pm and this movie was just starting. I knew nothing about it other than it starred Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. "Must be good", I thought. I was totally wrong. I should have known to turn the channel when one of the first scenes involved a shuttle explosion with the pieces of debris containing some type of indestructible organism on it. This movie went from bad to worse straight through to the ending. Two thumbs down. How about you all? Any movies to NOT RECOMMEND out there?

The New Man in My Life

Meet Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter expert by day, a serial killer by night. Also known as the Bay Harbor Butcher. Do any of you watch this show? I don't have Showtime so I order the complete seasons from Netflix. I highly, highly recommend it. He is my secret obsession right now. I sneak off in the dead of night to watch it. Be careful, he will captivate you and reel you in!

One for You, Two for Me!

I had to go to the Derby Shops in Hingham on Sunday to pick up my new tax free shopping day Bar Stools for the outside kitchen. I popped into our local Lilly Pulitzer store, In the Pink, and found that almost everything from the Spring and Summer lines was 50% off. Seeing is how L.P. is not "plus sized friendly", nothing much fits me in there! However, I did manage to find these great cable knit sweaters for half off. For Madigan, I loved this classic shift dress with the cabana print. It will be put away for next summer since it is a size 7. I always buy a size or two up for her so we can try to get two seasons out of her clothes. She was in a very cranky mood when she got off the bus today so I have not shown it to her. Wise decision on my part because she probably would have black balled it from her wardrobe and trust me readers, she would remember this next May!!

The Tear Heard Around New England

The unthinkable has happened. Tom Brady is out for the entire season. To Patriot Fans, the end of the world is here. All Summer, the sports peeps talked about what would happen to the team if he went down. Well, now we'll find out. Our back up quarterback, Matt Cassel finally gets to leave the sidelines for a real game. The ACL tear requires surgery and will require serious meds for the fans in this rabid football nation.

Big Day

Where the heck has the time gone? I sent My Baby off to Kindergarten this morning!!!! She was very excited. She even woke up at 5am and no, I was not excited about that! It was not as emotional as I thought it would be because she is at the same school that she went to last year for pre-K. Madigan is very much looking forward to seeing her friends and all of her bus buddies! Little does she know that it is not just about playing and using glue this year. She has some work to do!
