Touring over at Pearls & Curls

10 May

While Sara from Pearls & Curls is out of town for her little brother’s birthday, she has generously allowed this newbie blogger to guest post for the day. I shared the story of my little brother’s most memorable birthday celebration. Go check it out!

Sox on Saturday leads to a sleepy Sunday

28 Apr

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday. She LOVES the Red Sox so we celebrated by going to a game. I admit I left early AND I am still tired today. I’m so ashamed of myself- my age is catching up to me. In my defense, I had much better luck getting a taxi home in the fifth inning than I would have after the ninth! I know, I know. It’s still pathetic.


Happy Birthday "little" sister!

Happy Birthday “little” sister!

Despite my exaggerated exhaustion, I’m linking up with Neely and Ashley for Sunday Social. This week their questions all revolve around childhood.

1. Did you sleepwalk as a child? Nope.

2. Did you ever try to run away or sneak out of your house? I once hid under our back deck, but I don’t think it lasted long enough for anyone to notice I was gone!

3. Did you have any imaginary friends? No, but I’d role play being a teacher all the time. I had a whole classroom set up in our basement.

4. Did you ever go toilet papering? Nope. I was a good kid!

5. Did you ever sneak tv shows you weren’t allowed to watch? I used to be jealous when my older cousin slept over and got to stay up to watch Saturday Night Live. I would sneak down and watch with him. I also used to stay up late reading when I should have been sleeping. I hid a flashlight under my pillow.


Apparently, I was a fairly boring child. Lucky for my parents! What were you like as a kid?

Back to reality today. My friend from Florida headed home on an early flight and I am headed back to my cubicle and wishing I had one more day to recover!

My best friend and boyfriend gave me an incredible 30th birthday party Saturday night.They really outdid themselves. It was in a boutique hotel in Boston and decorated with balloons, beautiful orchids and of course some “30 Sucks” decorations. They even had specialty drinks named for me!

I was completely overwhelmed having over 40 of the people I love most from all the different parts and phases of my life  in the same room.

An unbelievable sense of gratitude is what I am feeling today! I have no idea what I did right in prior lives to deserve such special people in my life right now, but I will take it!



Today was Day Seven (or Day G) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

I also linked up with THE Collective and YOLO Monday!

Birthday blues

2 Apr


I think yesterday was a big April Fool’s Day joke on me. Either that or my post from yesterday was an April Fool’s Joke on you. Either way, something is off. Content/cement.

I wrote yesterday about being content and happy. Let me tell you, that was certainly tested in a roller coaster of feelings kind of birthday. But nobody wants to hear about the lows, here are the highs!

  • High- Woke up to a phone loaded down with texts, Facebook posts and comments wishing me a Happy Birthday
  • High- Received an amazing bouquet at work from my BFF in NYC
  • High- My friends dropped off tulips to my office
  • High- Took it upon myself to salvage the day and told everyone I was flying solo the remainder
  • High- Got a manicure and pedicure and am now rocking a hot pink nail color
  • High- Went to the movies and saw The Host- realized at least my body is not being taken by an alien
  • High- Got home and talked to my best friend
  • High- Got to catch up on all the awesome comments you left me!

I’m calling a do-over on the shenanigans this birthday began. In honor of my blog, it is being wiped clean and today is another clean slate.

Be gentle to me today- I am fragile.

Tell me a joke or funny story in the comments to make me smile. Pretty, please??

Today was Day Two (or Day B) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge
