Today is bittersweet for me. As this posts, the Red River Rivalry is currently unfolding it all its glory. I am undoubtedly screaming at the tv and all the dogs are conflicted between attempting to beg and/or steal the game snacks or hiding. If you are not familiar with college football, the Red River Rivalry is the … Continue reading Jonas.
Did you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? Well, it is. It used to be Halloween, but living in NYC has ruined that for me for reasons too numerous to count. But Thanksgiving…well, it’s all about the food, taking time to thankful, and celebrating family & friends. Continue reading Gobble Gobble & A Whole Lotta Thanks
I have been to a lot of airports in my life, but thus far, have never experienced any quite so open as the ones in Hawaii. Literally. I haven’t really traveled much in the tropics, so perhaps all airports in the tropical places of the world are like this? Certainly no airports that I’ve been … Continue reading Fresh Open Air…Port?
In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading My Cup Runneth Over for Thirsty Thursday
A couple of months before we left for Hawaii, I got a call from BFF. No hi. No hello. Just “do you want to get laid when we land in Honolulu.” Silence. Is this a trick question? I mean, who doesn’t?!?! But I’m taking this trip with BFF, her hubby, and April, so I wasn’t … Continue reading Planning To Get Lei’d
Hello and Happy Monday! That was totally forced. Not because I don’t mean it (I do), but because I’ve been sitting here for almost 30 minutes trying to figure out how to start this post. You may have noticed in my post yesterday a new category: 100 Days of Blogging. If you didn’t notice, don’t … Continue reading 100 Days of Blogging

Yesterday I lost a friend. We met through work and other mutual friends. We didn’t hang out often, but when we did, things just clicked. She was one of the kindest, most graceful people I have ever met. She had been handed a very challenging lot in life and yet, always had a smile and kind … Continue reading I Knew A Girl…
Sorry for the impromptu month off! It has been–to say the very least–a crazy summer. Not that I’ve been traveling, but rather, I’ve been visited by travelers (yay!). Additionally, it has been chaotic at work and there are a plethora of other things not even worth mentioning. Of course, I didn’t mean to be neglectful in my writing–I … Continue reading Aloha Summer Vacation!
What would a birthday trip be without a special birthday dinner? Granted this one was a lot more low key than the first one. It was equally as memorable–this time for the food–nor did I get drenched! First stop: dinner! at a swanky seafood and steak house in St. Paul called Kincaid’s. We started with Country … Continue reading Fabulous Not Forty Birthday Dinner #2
