A Week’s Worth of Halloween

Halloween with kids is quite the ordeal. There are neighborhood parties, trick-or-treating at work, costumes at school and then – of course – trick-or-treating on Halloween. Colin did it all and then some. He got more mileage out of his $12 costume than we could have ever imagined! Here’s how Halloween rolled out BEFORE the …

Guttentag Deutschland!

While the boys were at play back home, Megan headed to Germany for a work meeting (tough life, I know). Before the meeting, it was great to catch up with pal and Abu Dhabian Mark – and the rest flowed from there. While the days were long, and it was a lot of work, the …

Masalam to Edelman UAE

So, my last day at work was perfectly timed with the end-of-financial-year extravaganza. It not only meant a half day of actual work wrapping up things, but also a fun way to spend a few final moments with the fabulous Edel-crew (guns + karting = good, wholesome fun). There was a surprise, amazing send off …

Saying Goodbye to the Scuba Crew

One of the hardest goodbyes was to our dear friends known as the Wolfpack, our scuba crew. But, we made the most of our last week together with three soirees. While they didn’t involve heading 20 meters under water, they were equally – if not more so – entertaining with a birthday party, all-you-can-eat-and-drink Chinese …

A Final Weekend in Dubai, Our Sister City

With June our last month in the UAE, it was inevitable to start saying our goodbyes. One of the first “lasts” during our time here was a final weekend in Dubai. Catching up with great folks from NYU, visiting neighborhoods and eateries old and new, and even taking on a new adventure by spending our …

Bye, Bye to one of the Healthies

In anticipation of the sad departure of Corianna, part of the Edel-crew headed to Dubai’s Healthcare City for an all-you-can-eat dim sum feast for a fitting send off (excess is the name of the game in the UAE). Corianna is now just returned Stateside, and the UAE will never be the same! On a related …

Staying Busy

So, we’ve had a few adventures over the past month that may not warrant a full-on blog post. But, they were so much fun that we decided to show the love for our nearest and dearest. “B” has been the theme, with ballet, brunches, beverages out and Brewhahas…

Kingpin

So how do you settle a friendly rivalry between the IT and Finance Departments at NYU Abu Dhabi? At the bowling alley of course! And so it was set – Finance vs. IT, live from Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi. The team with the highest average would be declared the champ. Competition was intense …
