What I Learned in 2011

December 30, 2011 · 39 comments

To say the least, 2011 was quite the year. via A new beginning occurred just as a big part of my life ended. I learned the trials and tribulations of raising a black lab puppy who is almost as sassy as I am. I’ve learned that life goes on. And I love the quote, “God […]


Need a Laugh?

December 29, 2011 · 11 comments”

Let’s just assume you all need a laugh in the midst of the post-Christmas letdown. No need to be upset. New Years celebrations are around the corner! One of the smartest things I did in 2011 was start TiVo-ing SNL. This is one of my favorite sketches I’ve seen in a while. Even if they […]


Christmas New and Old

December 28, 2011 · 33 comments

This Christmas was full of traditions old and new. I hope you had as merry a holiday as I did. There were so many things to bring my Christmas cheer to a all-time high this year. It wouldn’t be Christmas without any of that regular mess. Especially the challenge that is taking the annual family […]


Did you check out the winners of the Love Grown Foods granola giveaway? I’ve been at my parents house in North Carolina since Wednesday night keeping pretty busy. I have awesome friends who send me books so I don’t feel the need to drop another $24 on audiobooks (THANK YOU, Sara!) And I’ve been working […]


The First Measurements

December 22, 2011 · 40 comments

I’ve got news. And it’s good news. Many of you have been inquiring all about my nutrition plan created for me by my good friend Jim who owns his own fitness and nutrition studio (read more about the plan here, here, and here). Yesterday hit the 30-day mark of my plan, and moseyed on over […]


I lied. This actually has words. But only enough to tell you how much I adore Manhattan and its rooftop bars at which I am given a red hooded robe, hot rum apple cider, and coffee with Bailey’s (thank you, 230 Fifth). And traipsing through Central Park, obviously. Where I was jealous of every single […]


UPDATE: Giveaway has closed. Scroll down to the bottom to see the winners! It’s no secret I’m a big advocate for spreading love and cheer at any time of year. Why else would I splash photos like these all over the internet for you? Just trying to spread the joy. I do it for you. […]


This happened while I was in New York. Thank you, Gigi. And this is why my brother’s baby is not on the nice list like mine. Except for the fact that mine mine pooped on the floor after her photo. Of note: 1. I have some sweet NYC weekend activity photos. You’ll see them when […]


By the way…

1. …I finally got my iPhone 4s on Monday. Are you shocked I didn’t shout it from the rooftops? That’s right. I went with the gold sparkles, thanks to my friend Sara (you rock, lady)! 2. …I’ve discovered how much I absolutely love “talk to text” and want to do it for the rest of […]

December 15, 2011 · 23 comments

You’re looking for the perfect holiday cocktail for a holiday party, for girl’s night, or for taking the edge off of a long Thursday. You know where to come. Maybe it’s due to my short stint as a bartender, maybe it’s my slight cocktail A.D.D., or maybe it’s the fact that my signature skinny margarita […]
