SD Card Fail

My trip to Best Buy was an epic failure. Not only did my Lady Gaga CD refuse to play in my computer, but the SD card reader also didn’t work.  Now I have a mini CD stuck in my laptop and I need to go to the Apple Store to have someone fish it out. [...]

Love that Dirty Water

I finally made it back to Boston;  I survived the holiday whirlwind!  Now it’s time to gear up for New Year’s Eve tomorrow night. I need to run to Best Buy to purchase a USB cable for my camera and then post about my New Year’s Resolutions.  I had a looong 6 hour car ride [...]

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

We ate lunch at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. There were lots of great options on the menu.  When the waitress told me that they’re known for their ribs, chicken, and pulled pork, it was easy to make up my mind, I ordered pulled pork with salad and black beans and rice.  I ate the sandwich open faced.  [...]

Holiday Vacation

I feel like such a bad blogger.  I’ve been on vacation since 12/23.  First I was at my parents’ house in Blackstone, MA and now I’m in NY with Jared’s family.  It’s been hard to find time to exercise and to post regularly.  And I promise I’ve been reading blogs!  I just haven’t had time [...]

I started with a bowl of chicken soup.  My Memere makes chicken soup every Christmas.  Everyone looks forward to this [...]

It’s the Most Wonderful Time

I hope everyone had a great holiday.  My Christmas partying continues today with a party for 32 people at my Memere and Pepere’s house. I’m so glad I went to Becky’s gym this morning.  She reserved a bike for me in the 8 am spin class.  It was a workout!  I was sweating buckets and [...]

Merry Christmas!!!

Fun Holiday Movie Quote: “Oh, but there is. I’m not just a whimsical figure who wears a charming suit and affects a jolly demeanor. You know, I… I… I’m a symbol. I’m a symbol of the human ability to be able to suppress the selfish and hateful tendencies that rule the major part of our [...]

The Stockings Were Hung

By the Chimney with Care Fun Holiday Movie Quote: “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since [...]
