Skidmore vs. Babson

I scarfed down a quick bowl of Annie’s macaroni and cheese before heading to Babson College to watch my brother play hockey.

Holiday Vacation

My Lunch… No, no really!  Haha.  I forgot to take a photo, but my lunch was 1/2 the size of my Thanksgiving platter of food.  Just as delicious as yesterday! We relaxed […]


When I got home from work, there was a letter addressed to me sitting in the mail slot.  Nasoya sent some coupons to me so I can sample more of their products.  Hmm, I’m going to go online and check out what to buy when I get groceries later tonight. I was in a down […]
