Let’s Putt Out Cancer

Who couldn’t use a little more Putt Putt in their lives?

If I could have a little more putt putt and a lots less cancer in my life, I would be one very happy girl. And since I’m not one to sit around (although that would be nice every once and a while!) I’m going to make it happen.

Next week. Tuesday, July 31st. 7-9pm. Trombetta’s (655 Farm Road, Marlborough).

$25 gets you a round of mini golf, an ice cream sundae, and a stake in this fight against cancer. Everybody wants in when fighting the bad guys, right? So let’s stack the deck and pack the course on Tuesday night!

What? You can’t come on Tuesday? You or your business can be there because $100 gets you a Hole Sponsorship! A nice sign with your name on it, laminated, posted at the tee so everyone can note your support and generosity while they wait for the slow-pokes in front of them! Not to mention your name will be on the giveaways!

You can also donate an item for the drawing and be recognized that night as well!

All of the proceeds from Tuesday night support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s research and patient care. I’m well on my way to meeting my aggressive goal for the Falmouth Road Race as part of the Dana-Farber team, and hopefully this event is proof that anything aggressive can be knocked out of the park! Don’t forget, you can always just give!

Space is filling up quickly, so if you’d like to reserve a spot for one or more, sponsor a hole, or donate an item, comment on this post and we’ll put you down! Post any questions here, too!

I want to thank Trombetta’s for hosting Putt Out Cancer, the Marlborough Patch (@MarlBPatch) for helping raise awareness, and The Vin Bin (@thevinbin) for being an early sponsor of this event!

Thank you to everyone for their support, and I hope to see you on the 31st!


An Untraditional Fourth

No cookout. No beach or lake. No kids or Jason, even. (That last one wasn’t fun.)

However, I had some freedom! I took the day (until 11pm, when I couldn’t stay away from my email any longer) to do stuff that I have needed/wanted to do for ages at the house!

I painted our master bath.  Lucky for me, its tiny, so I was done by early afternoon! (This is good. I’m an impatient painter…)

I was definitely done with blah.

And now…a beautiful blue! With cute little shelves!


I felt so accomplished, that after a quick lunch…we tackled the garage!

I know, that sounds exciting. Really. But when you consider that we moved in 4 years ago and can now use that bay for a car…its pretty darn exciting!!

Then, to wrap up my untraditional 4th, I had the most amazing dinner that Nonna cooked: goat chops, kale and chard with sausage, salad, broccoli, and jasmine rice. With some delightful red wine. Not a BBQ, but I couldn’t think of a better way to reward a hard day’s (not) work.

How did you celebrate our country’s birthday and your independence?
