stoop tawk

When I started my weight loss journey, more specifically, when I started posting updates here, I said this blog wouldn’t turn into a weight loss blog. One, because I feel like all I’m doing is eating and tracking, so what advice do I have to impart? Two, because that’s NOT me. At all. You should know this by now. Fast…

ICYMI: that time I met Tom Hardy: #throwbackthursday

I’ve had a bit of a #hardyhangover since watching Dunkirk. I mean, that (pretty much) second to last scene on the beach, in the turtleneck – it just does something to a girl. Turns out Mr. Hardy and myself have a bit of history. I wrote this post 4 years ago, to celebrate the year anniversary of meeting Pillow Lips.…

weekend update: christmas shopping, light displays and historic houses

So, it’s Sunday night and I’m actually writing a weekend update post. Friday I took the day off of work so that I could uphold the tradition (and necessary evil) of going Christmas shopping with my mom, aunt, and cousins. When I say necessary evil, it’s the crowds and the pressure of getting it all done that I hate, not…

paying my civic dues

I have a running joke with my mom that I am a poor representation of an adult. I mean, I have a job (or two), I have credit cards that I pay the bills on once a month, I watch the news fairly regularly, I had to Google what ICYMI meant the other day, I can drive and I don’t have…

Brooklyn: worth the hype?

A few posts ago I mentioned that I wanted to link up with Steph and Jana for the Show Us Your Books link up. I missed the last one, but here I am now! finally. I peruse Amazon on a pretty regular basis for new books. I keep a queue on my Kindle and I have a small box of paper books,…

snow my God! a weekend recap

Monday, we meet again. I was on the fence about doing a weekend recap since all I did was wait for the snow, watch the snow, and then wish the snow would go away. But, for the sake of posterity, I decided to do one anyway. Friday I had plans to go to Jessica’s, but Jonas had other ideas. The…

reunions and regrets

I should be using this post to regale you with stories of my 10 year high school reunion that (finally) happened this past Saturday. SHOULD BE. Except I didn’t go. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone whose been here for a while, but in case you haven’t, I didn’t want to go in the first place. Luckily, even…

isn’t this what facebook is for?

Well, the time has finally come. I’ve known about this for a while now and it’s finally coming to be. MY HIGH SCHOOL REUNION IS COMING UP. I mean, I am fully aware that it’s been 10 years since I’ve walked those hallowed halls. I graduated on June 23, 2005. The same day I got a Razr cellphone, so clearly…

flowers minus the allergies!

I didn’t really have a post planned (do I ever?), but since it’s been a sad last couple of days in New York, I thought that I’d share my happy flower pictures from my trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens this past weekend. I wish there were daisies. There were lots of cherry blossoms and tulips and trees. tons and tons of…
