Resolution RealTalk

It’s hard to believe, but the Christmas season is officially behind us. Come this time tomorrow, we will be ringing in 2016. 2016. I mean, jeezel petes. Where did time go? Whether we like it or not, the time is upon us to set new years resolutions. I think the number one resolution in America is to shed the holiday weight. Which,Continue reading Resolution RealTalk

Here I Am

  So I’ve been watching rewatching The OC recently. That’s right. No shame here. I love it. All of it. Even the fourth season that literally limped along for 16ish pathetic episodes until the writers, in essence, gave up on the show. (Hello, Ryan’s dad?? WTFuudge mate?) ANYWHO. I digress. The episode I watched last night was the one whereContinue reading Here I Am

Finally Home, At Home

  It appears that time has escaped me, yet again. Between work and social engagements, I’m left with mere hours to plan, prepare, and purchase gifts for my family and friends. Nothing like a little holiday scramble to really get you in the Christmas spirit. That and an overpriced plane ticket. I just booked my flight home forContinue reading Finally Home, At Home

Two Teens, Two Realities

Ahh, Facebook, you double-edged sword, you. When you’re in your twenties, there comes a time when you log onto “The Book” and it’s like, overnight, every single one of your friends has gotten engaged. Scroll through your newsfeed, and it’s engagement photo after engagement photo, or better yet….babies. Well, needless to say, it’s happening. And I’m overContinue reading Two Teens, Two Realities

Fa La La

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I mean, if I could permanently decorate my life with white twinkle lights, I would. But I love it all: the decorations, the snow, the food, the music, the overly sappy Folgers commercials, the winter wardrobe, even Hallmark movies with their mawkish charm. I love it. all. But this year, aside from the fact that it’sContinue reading Fa La La

The B Word

Ahh, it’s that time of year again. And no, I’m not talking about mistletoe. Or eggnog. Or oversized sweaters with Uggs. I’m talking… The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Yes, friends. The time is upon us. In case you haven’t heard, this Tuesday, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is coming to us live – err, pre-recordedContinue reading The B Word

O Christmas Tree

Hands down, my favorite Christmas tradition is putting up the tree. There’s just something about the smell of a beautiful evergreen mixed with the crisp winter air that really makes Christmas come alive for me. And even though this weekend it was 65 degrees, and my family has switched over to a fake tree… theContinue reading O Christmas Tree
