My name is Roxanna - I blog at Miguelina. which used to be called Diary of a Reluctant Housewife, but is still at www.diary.blogs.com. Confused yet? Yeah, me too.

I'm not a fan of Dunkin' Donuts, crazy drivers or snow - yet I love living here. Must be the clam chowder.

I live in the Boston suburbs with my husband and two boys. My current goal is to meet all of the New England Mamas, in a non-internet-stalker-like fashion. When are we having a meet-up?

Hi Roxanna...Welcome!

I'm a small independent donut shop lover. One little place in Middleborough has the best crullers evah.

I'll have to do an interview with my dad on the best chowder places ever.

Re meet up...it's a work in progress. Margalit is trying to organize one, I think...

But if anyone is interested, I'm planning on going to the Boston Common playground on Friday morning so the Impling can commune with the frogs. Anyone for an impromptu playdate?

Well it's about darn time you introduced yourself. Jeez. It's not like you're all that busy or anything. ;)

Welcome to the group! Big things are going to be happening so watch your email.

Heya, Roxanna. One of the best chowdahs is at the Clam Box in Ipswich. Mmmm, chowdah. Too bad it's, like, a three hour drive for me now.

Roxanna - I think we should plan a meetup and SOON.

Rock the Cradle - I would totally join, but we're having some work done on our house on Friday...I just made the appointment today darn it!

Mrs. Chicky - I know...lamest intro ever - but like I said, I'm hoping to meet you ladies in person and introduce myself all proper-like.

Anyone willing to drive somewhere within 495 for lunch one weekend in August? Email me at everydaytreats AT gmail with days you would be available and maybe a suggestion, otherwise I'm off to Middleborough and Ipswich to have donuts and chowder all by my lonesome!

Ladies outside of 495? I'm coming after you next!

Roxanna, I don't know where you all moved to, but I'm still in the old n neighborhood. I have been trying to get people together to go to the south end fair. I really want to do it. But we need to find a Sunday when most people can get there.

ANYONE have a suggestions as to when before school starts up again and we all lose our collective minds?

margalit said...

Oh, and anytime ANYONE wants to take me to the Clambox, I'm so in. Day or night. I don't care. It's about my fave summer place in the world.

Thanks for the introduction! Looking forward to meeting up with everyone, too!

I'm all for meeting everyon. Could most likely even do the 495 area meet-up. I'm free on Aug. 12 and 19th only, though. May be able to stop for dinnertime on Aug. 11th (will be coming home from a family picnic in Western MA that day). But Hubby and I are going to the Mt. Sunapee League of NH Craftsmen Fair this Sunday, 8/5 - late morning/early afternoon. Anyone else going? Let me know

Welcome Roxanna! I'd love for us to have a 'meet up' this month. It might help me keep everyone's 'real' names straight!
