Hey it’s DD!

Novio’s Bistro

Hey Hey it’s DD! I was sitting in the gym parking lot  getting ready to train for my #dds35for35, when our good friend Allison called. She’s part of our original tribe, but she’s a newlywed with a few almost teenage step kids, so we savor every chance to hang with her we get. It was a welcome distraction from the gym, to be honest, because […]

Mason’s Brewing Company Brunch

Jess and DD were SUPPOSED to go hiking today (Willow is hiking in southern Maine with a friend) but it was cold. And sleeping in and BLOODY MARYS sounded SO much more appealing –  so we decided that our adventure for today would be BRUNCH. Jess and DD went to Judy’s (a dive bar with breakfast) last weekend, but DD is a crazy Bloody Mary critic and they just did […]
