Quote of the Week 11/11/13

11 Nov

First of all, Happy Veterans Day to all the servicemen & women out there. Thank you for your service!

This weekend was my final wedding of 2013, and it was so much fun. My mom even came down from Greenville to celebrate Ryan & Becca, and it was just a total blast of a weekend.

The other highlight of my weekend was roasting a whole chicken in my crock pot for the first time. I know that this probably isn’t a major feat for any of you out there, but for me it was kind of a big deal. So this week’s quote is in honor of my newfound chicken roasting superpowers. Enjoy!

“You could probably get through life without knowing how to roast a chicken, but the question is, would you want to?”
–Nigella Lawson

I wish I could make spaghetti look that good.

Quote of the Week 8/26/13

27 Aug

This past weekend I went to Boston to move Naomi in, and attended the Feast of St. Anthony for the second year in a row. It was a gluttonous afternoon full of rice balls, pizza, and cannoli. It was amazing.

Naomi didn’t get the chance to enjoy everything I did, because she’s decided to be a vegetarian and forsake all things fun. Therefore, this week’s quote is in her honor.

“I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian.”
— Erma Bombeck

She's waving goodbye to your social life, Naomi.

Quote of the Week 6/3/13

4 Jun

Holy crap. It’s June already. I honestly have no idea how that happened so fast. 2013 is going to be over before we know it!

I spent this weekend in Atlanta with some of my best friends, eating, drinking, and being merry. I got to try one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten at the Holeman & Finch stand at the Atlanta Braves Baseball game. We had to wait in line for like 20 minutes to get it, but it was 100% worth it. More details on that later.

This week’s quote comes from the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus. I chose this quote partly because Christine is Greek, but more so because I believe it is an accurate representation of my life.

“We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.”
–Epicurus

"Hey, why the long face?...no seriously, your face is really long."

I bet all of his philosopher friends were all “Hey, why the long face?…no seriously, your face is really long.”
