New Year’s Eve

Are you excited to ring in the New Year?  I definitely am! Dressed in my finest sweatpants, I’ll be staying at a friend’s house in Boston to usher in 2011. I’ve been thinking about all of the possibilities that 2011 holds. A new job?  Vacations?  Blog changes?  A big announcement? Yup, I have a funny [...]

What I Wore

When: Wednesday, December 29th Where: Dinner at the Owl House What: T-shirt (base layer), cowl neck sweater with a kangaroo pocket, skinny jeans, black flat boots Fun Fact: Because the sweater had such a big collar, I didn’t need to wear a scarf when I went out in the cold.  I just scrunched up my [...]

An (Un)Healthy Day of Living

I had a great day yesterday.  But was it healthy or unhealthy?  Hmm… When I finally rolled out of bed (I slept A LOT later than everyone else in the house), I had a cup of coffee and a raisin bagel. I spent some time repacking and organizing my crap stuff that I spread all [...]

The Great Outdoors

I spent most of the day in the car, driving from Massachusetts to Rochester, New York.  From 1 pm until 8 pm I was cooped up, wiggling into different positions to prevent my back and glute pain from returning. Oh how I wish I could’ve been in the great outdoors.  Especially when it looked like [...]

Holly Jolly Christmas

I gathered with my mom’s side of the family for my Memere and Pepere’s Christmas Party.  And there’s absolutely no way to sum up how I spent my day yesterday. Here’s what happened: I ate the traditional bowl of chicken soup… Santa visited… There were presents hanging from the ceiling… The Yankee Swap was wild… [...]


The forecast for tomorrow is simple and straightforward: Blizzard in the am. It’s been snowing all day.  There were flurries at 7:30 this morning and early in the afternoon, the snow started to accumulate.  We’re supposed to end up with 20″ by the time the storm is over! I’m really glad Santa brought me a [...]


I hope your Christmas was filled with wonder and joy. When I saw what Santa (and my wonderful boyfriend) had left under the tree, I was filled with so much joy. And when I spent a wonderful Christmas day surrounded by loved ones, I was again filled with an overwhelming sense of happiness. My Christmas [...]

What I Wore

When: Wednesday December 22nd Where:  Haircut, errands, and dinner with friends What:  White long sleeve t-shirt, red collared sweatshirt, skinny jeans, sand colored Uggs Ugly Uggs!    There were snow flurries so I wore my boots so I’d be warm rather than fashionable.  There was no way I’d give up my Uggs only to wind [...]

Visions of Sugar Plums

Merry Christmas Eve! I arrived home to a beautifully decorated tree. I love the warmth and memories of being home for the holidays. My Pepere and Memere joined us for dinner. My mom loves snowmen so they’re ALL over the house.  I can’t believe New England is supposed to get hit with a crazy storm [...]
