Kate Spade Saturday has been one of those brands I’m constantly pinning and wishing for. So of course I was bummed out to hear that we will soon have to say good-bye to the fun (and slightly more affordable) Kate Spade offshoot. But … Continue reading
I should probably be very clear here, I have no love of video games. The boys in my household, however, seem to enjoy them quite a bit. The smaller two could probably play for an entire unblinking day, stopping only … Continue reading
Hey, remember that one time I went on vacation and opted out of doing blog posts for an entire week? What has this world come to, right?
Well, I know everyone was on the edge of their seats to find out what we finally decided to do with our limited time off. Mostly we regretted our choice to not have updated passports, cursed our work schedules for lying about the amount of time we could take off, and ate delicious food. We also enjoyed a romp around the State Capitol, and a few evenings in a blue pool surrounded by tan tiles (that I pretended were a sandy beach somewhere not in upstate New York).
So, lessons learned from this trip?
- Get my passport ready for “next time” (married last names, psh).
- Walking around in 7° windy weather is much less pleasant than one would expect.
- Telling antique stores we’re from NYC makes them overcharge for my treasure finds.
- Yelp is a great way to find food, but random places not on Yelp can be delicious too.
- Always zoom out on Google Maps before choosing your driving route home.
- We can collectively have fun as a family pretty much anywhere, even if it means endless, “Can we get back in the car yet, I’m freezing,” questions. Yay for Troy, New York (and hotel pools).

I own one pair of black boots, that I wear almost every single day. I own six different red lipsticks, and have still found more I want to buy. I’m starting to think that lipstick might be my new nail polish. … Continue reading
Sometimes I feel like I jump into decisions. I watched a science video today that talked about the differences between fast and slow thinking. They compared seeing a picture and instantly knowing the person in it is angry (fast), to a double … Continue reading
Last February we decided to take advantage of Mason and Milo’s winter recess to visit the land of amusement parks, Orlando. It turned out to be a great idea. Not only were the boys the perfect middle age—young enough to be … Continue reading
The other day a song came on about love at first sight, and Tyler joked that that must have been how I felt when I saw him. Well, we’ve been over what I thought at first sight (and second, third … Continue reading
Last week, when it was around a 20 degree high for the day (and I had worn 2 layers of pants and about 5 layers on top) a girl in my office was wearing a skirt. I questioned her un-bundled clothing … Continue reading
I have been wanting a dehydrator since the time my neighbor shared her delicious dried apples with me. This Christmas my dreams came to fruition (bada, ching!). My new dehydrator arrived last Friday, and it has been drying fruit almost non-stop ever since. It … Continue reading
