Ryder James Bersani

I got a chance to visit Ashley and family this past weekend in Columbus OH. I was in Philadelphia for work and was like absolutely I can make a stop in Beautiful Ohio. I had to see this cute baby I've been hearing so much about. Well he's the cutest little guy I've ever seen. So great to see Ashley, Jamie, Louis and Ryder. Miss that baby already.

Race for the Cure

Tracy and I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday October 5th. It was a beautiful Saturday morning. We kicked butt and ran it in about 35 minutes. My second time and Tracy's first. We are gearing up for the Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving.

Cheese Tour

A couple of weekend's ago (9/15) Dale and I went on a cheese tour in Washington County. It was a beautiful day for a drive and we met up with Jessica and Jamie in the morning and set off on our self guided tour. We went to 4 farms and saw many a sheep, goat and cows. We tasted goat cheese, sheep's milk cheese, cheddars, yogurt, cream cheese you name it. Then we topped off our day with a 5-course cheese dinner in Greenwich, NY.

Best Week Ever!!!

Indigo Girls with Brandi Carlile

Can this week get any better? I went from DMB Tuesday night to the Indigo Girls show in Rutland, VT Wednesday night. I'm hitting the road with Emily and Betsy. The Paramount Theater in Rutland, VT holds only 800 people. The Indigo Girls are always great but their opening act Brandi Carlile stole the show. She's amazing. Go see her or buy one of her CD's if you haven't heard her yet she's going to be huge.

Dave Matthews Band

So I thought it would be pretty cool to bring my cousin Maura to her first ever DMB concert. She's 14 and about to turn 15 and that's also when I really got into Dave. So I went online and got us some lawn seats. Then Dale's friend Johna (who is a goddess) gave us some extra inside seats. Little did I know they were 14th row center section !!!! Amazing show. His only in NY. He played for over 3 hours and Trey Anastasio (lead from Phish) came out and did Lie in Our Graves to the surprise of everyone, including Dave. Great show. Maura don't get too used to the seats it doesn't always work out that way.

Aaron Alexander Sherman

We attended a naming ceremony for Aaron Alexander Sherman this weekend at Ariel's parents house in Princeton, NJ. So great to meet the little guy he looks just like his daddy. The Sherman's are all doing well we love you guys.

Ashley's Baby Shower

It was amazing this weekend to see Ashley and Jamie. Ashley, you are the most beautiful expectant mom ever. We have been friends for over 10 years and during the shower I couldn't help thinking back to our 16 y/o selves sitting around flipping through magazines imagining how fabulous our lives were going to be and how now here we are almost 30, married and you are about to be a mom. It's totally unreal. As usual great to see all the Rosenbergers.

Red Socks v Braves

It was the Boston Red Socks against Dale's hometown Atlanta Braves this Saturday. Thanks to Shelley's positive thinking, and our good luck she invited us to join her and Chad for the game. The rain held off and the seats were fantastic a little behind first base. It was my first baseball game and I loved it. Of course they had to break it to me that we would probably never have seats this good again, but it was amazing while it lasted. Unfortunately the braves lost the first, but came back later that night to get the socks in the double header.
After the game we headed to the Mission Bar and Grille for dinner compliments of Shelley's package she won. Kristi joined us there for some dinner and drinks and the second game where Atlanta prevailed. All in all it was a great weekend.

Kentucky Derby

It wouldn't be the Kentucky Derby if we weren't at the National Museum of Racing. At the 2nd annual Kentucky Derby party this year we had a blast. In fact way too much fun i'm still recovering. Cheers to Torey for his kickin outfit. No winners for us but a great time. This year they donated the proceeds from this party to a local charity. $10,000 was raised.

Locks for Love

Well I finally did it. After two years of letting my hair grow I finally cut it all off again. I donated ten inches of my hair for "Locks for Love". It feels great to be back to my short hair.
