#fortiis40
So, it happened.  40... the big 4-0.  It came and went.  It was a whirlwind of activity that has sadly died down... and I'm left with my thoughts. Over the past 2 weeks, I flew to the West Coast, visited 4 cities, saw my BFFs from college and Disney, made n...

Recently hubbie had a work conference in Baltimore, MD.  When he asked if I wanted to tag along, one thought popped into my head "Crab. Meat.".  I replied with an eager YES and prepared to fast for weeks leading up in order to prep for the large amount of c...

WWARD (aka: What Would a Runner Do)?
Ever wonder what your hips and ass would feel like if squeezed into a vice grip for hours?  Me either... until today.  I'm pretty sure it would be close to what I currently feel like after running my first 5K. This adventure was the result of me thinking of...

Pickin' for Plaid
Over the weekend, mom and I went to Putnam, CT for some bonding time over antique/thrift shopping.  I arrived with a list.  I left with a vintage plaid jacket, a 1970's floral maxi dress, and nothing from the aforementioned list.  While a wooden ladder and ...

Controlled Mess
Remember when I told you we needed more kitchen storage and then that turned into a kitchen renovation? Well, it turns out, we didn't need more storage, we just needed to reorganize and donate items.  But since I hate admitting I'm wrong in moments like the...

Vintage Library Baby Shower
This past November I was fortunate enough to plan and design a baby
shower for my Sister-In-Law.  Combining the mom and grandmothers-to-be's
