bye bye blogger!

i'm changing blogging platforms. i'm kinda miffed because while i like all the bells and whistles of wordpress, i can't for the life of me figure out how to change the platform on my domain. so, i'm losing for a bit...just till i figure this out! so check me out over at! their layouts are a little nicer and more stylized then anything i could come up with on blogger! see you there!

brew pubin'

while away (and every other time we're down there...) we go to the Ellicotteville Brewing Company for a meal and a pint. i wish i had taken a few more pictures, but i didn't so deal with it.

not one smile was normal that day...

i would probably die from alcohol poisoning if
i drank one of these, but the name was pretty awesome

i could eat a million of these

the grand caesar burger is amazing

new years with the brick a bracks

last new years was kinda anti-climactic. dinner with friends. attempting to stay up till midnight. blah. this year the work gods smiled down on me and i was awarded for all my hard work (watch it...) with three days off! cue choirs of angels singing... so we went to mr. brack's family's cottage in Ellicotteville, NY! it was such a lovely vacation filled with sleeping late, staying in pjs all day, learning to froth milk for hot chocolates, catching up on movies, and playing in the snow! and since we had to cross the boarder, we had no access to wifi or cell phones! i highly recommend that everyone has an electronics holiday every now and then (she says to the people reading her blog on the interwebs...)!

road trip time!
this dog lives the life
being chauffeured to and fro...

i promise he'll smile at some point in these photos

so beautiful!

and relaxing


watching dad shovel...
i was in charge of the broom...
