Schooner Cruise

Oh, how we love the ocean. Seriously. It is our favorite place to hang out, study, eat, and take a nap. The only way to enjoy the ocean more?? By going out on a boat. Amit had bought another Groupon for a cruise and it wasn't just any cruise. We went on a 90 foot schooner, it was just gorgeous. We got lucky with the weather, too. My camera was acting up, but here are a few of my favorite shots.
A slightly fuzzy picture of the boat
 The fuzzy things prevent the sails from chafing
I loved the ways the sails look when you're sitting underneath them
And when they pass over you
See how happy we are when out on the water!
What a breathtaking sunset.
Another picture of us!
We had a fabulous time on the cruise and can't wait to get back out on the water. I think we'll need to buy a boat one day...

Clean Teeth and Craft Time!

I apologize for the lack of blogging... There really hasn't been much going on. That is, until last weekend.

Amit's been super busy in clinic seeing patients. It is fantastic for him, rather boring for me. We got lucky last weekend - one of his patients decided to switch his appointment, which meant that there was a Saturday appointment just for me!

So off we went to the BU 5th floor clinic. Amit did the data collection part, which consisted of an exam. The highlight of that part? Him telling me that I don't have any cavities. Boo-yah!! (Amit always threatens cavities since I don't floss religiously.) The probing (sounds nasty, I know) was so not as bad as expected. He did a fabulous job and I was pleasantly surprised. Then I sat back and he got to cleaning my teeth. I didn't take too many pictures, he was focused and I didn't want to distract him too much.

Love the action shot!
My gorgeous, super clean smile!
I grind my teeth at night and want to bleach them, so we have to schedule an appointment to do impressions. Amit's going to love watching me squirm during that appointment, so I'm sure we'll take lots of pictures!

I've also been rather productive in the crafting area. I finally got my act together, bought my Ikea frames, and worked under Tamsen's watchful eye to finish this awesome project. I loved the one she has hanging in her house and decided to copy it. It turned out great!!
My second project was inspired by a feature in my Better Homes and Gardens magazine. When the Kruegers were in town we had Krissy help us out. I just got it printed in sepia tones and we picked it up from the framing store on Saturday. It turned out way better than expected!!
My third project, which I'm just started after more than a year of marriage is our wedding scrapbook. I'm hoping to be done with it before Christmas so I can bring it home and show it off.

Kayak Time

Last Sunday we headed to Martha's Vineyard to do a little kayaking. We found a great deal on a kayak tour and were excited to do some sightseeing on the island.
Excited to be on the ferry
Amit went a little picture crazy...
 The Coast Guard was escorting us,
they said it was something they do for practice.
I wonder if it had anything to do with Obama leaving that day.
The cliffs and beaches at Aquinnah
Our view while eating lunch
After lunch it was time to kayak.
Do we look excited?
We didn't take the camera out while we were on the water,
but stopped at a little beach to snap a few shots.
Evidence that we ACTUALLY were kayaking...
We had a very fun day spent under the sun enjoying some gorgeous weather. It was a cute little island, but if we go again we'll bring our bikes instead of having to rely on the bus. It'll be a great excuse to get more exercise!!
