A Brand New Plan

November 30, 2011 · 47 comments

There are things I’ve neglected to tell you. I got too wrapped up in the Around It Goes Giveaway (have you entered yet?). Or maybe it’s because the only thing I can think about is The Hunger Games. Remember in the first book when Katniss is spending her first few days in the arena and […]


I have a pretty friend named Katherine. Sometimes, we attend wine tastings together. I like this friend of mine. And it’s not just because we have matching skinned knees. We can’t all be as graceful as a prima ballerina. Anyway, what do you think of the digs Kat’s sporting? Because you can have them. Katherine […]


I’m Back

I had a busy, busy Thanksgiving. I had a certain audio book entertaining me for the ride to New Jersey on Tuesday night… (read: obsessed.) I know I’m late in the game, but all of you were right. The Hunger Games is amazing. I’m a little more than halfway finished the first book, and I […]

Last night, Jamie and I ran on the boardwalk and looked at the Christmas light show in the sand. Until we got kicked off by the police and had to run on the strip instead. So we took running holiday card pictures. always having to one-up me, huh? And NOW, as you’re reading this, I’m […]

I have a good relationship with food. …maybe too intimate of a relationship with food. I like it a lot. As a kid, I wasn’t into food. I liked treats, I wasn’t usually a member of the “clean plate club” (of which I am now Club President, thankyouverymuch), I didn’t get excited about food, and […]

All of these. You’ve gotta see ’em. I think I stared at the above picture thinking back for a solid 60 seconds. WHAAAT? WHAT DID YOU DO, HARRY? WHAT DID YOU DO. (source) Where can I purchase this bad boy? I need to start painting these for bLyss Designs. And drink out of it. I’m […]

Many have asked me if I ever hit a wall during the Marine Corps Marathon. The answer is, fortunately, no. I was half expecting to, as I’ve heard “there’s nothing that can prepare you for mile 20.” I’m attributing this to good training, proper hydration, and some rockin tunes. 😉 In all seriousness, I had […]


Remember when I snagged the Brooks Pure Connect from the Marine Corps Marathon Expo? Yeah, I think they’re pretty nice to look at. It’s like looking down and seeing this guy. Mmm, not really. But you know what I mean. I know a few people who have the “duck shoes” (a.k.a. ugly Vibrams), and I […]

My friends joke that my life is a little a la Gossip Girl. Therefore, you get a GG-style post today. Spotted: Alyssa breaking it down on the dance floor and promptly called out by reader, Chrissy. At least she had nice things to say. Was it so easy to spot me because I was doing […]
