Panic attack

So, when my laptop started acting up a few months ago, I decided I needed tos ave all our wedding photos form India, my school work from MI etc. I started moving all of this over to Jeff's computer.

A week later, my computer gave me the blue screen of death. No worries. JEff reinstalled Windows, software, drivers and we sold it.

Yesterday, I realized I never retrieved my iTunes folders. About 10000 songs, among them some old and some not so well known that I don't have the CDs for anymore. Gone. All gone.

I am upset.

We're an all Mac family

Yes, I've sold my Dell laptop and now we are a 100% Mac family. We also just bought the new iMac.

I love the 24" monitor. I can design in Dreamweaver and see my changes show up without having to switch between windows.

I love the skinny keyboard.

Above all, I love the new design of the keyboard; less chances of food getting under the keys.

Burgers for lunch, crabcakes for dinner

We're living big today!

I made crabcakes for the first time today. I will put it on my recipe blog the next time, since I am going to do it from scratch. Today, we found a pre-mix seasoning packet from Old Bay.

I added some garlic, minced and powdered onion. We had them on burger rolls with tartar sauce, wasabi horseradish, tomatoes, onions and lettuce. We loved them!

Case of the missing Baklava

When I went to sleep last night, this is what I left in the kitchen:

When I woke up this morning, this is what I found:

I do remember Jeff saying to me in the middle of the night, "Please don't make any more baklava, sweetie."

The condo

Update: Our floors were pulled up and we got to check the whole place out today to make sure there was no mold. We found none. So, hopefully they'll get the floors redone soon.
Our pavements are in and the retaining wall is up. Yay! We didn't get a lot of photos but they're at

Orioles vs. the Red Sox

We took my Dad to his first ever baseball game. It was a beautiful night for a game.
He seemed to enjoy it. Jeff explained most of the rules and nuances of the game.
Jeff and I enjoyed it as well. We had seats in the first row of section 344. So, we had to deall with the bars but we had good leg room and nice view.
Close enough to get some nice shots of the players.
Orioles park has this cool feature: Designated Driver. You sign a thing saying you swear not to drink any alcohol, you get a wrist tag and 2 free drink vouchers for non-alcoholic drinks.
Orioles lost 7 to 6 but it was an awesome game. More pictures at: my Flickr page.
