ShareThis latest installment in the Mommy Wars has me fired up and feeling the need to vent a little. Oh, hi. Remember me? Caterer turned recipe blogger turned stay at home mom who left you all for months to lap up every second with my kid? Right. Glad we got that awkward re-entry over with… […]

ShareAnyone who knows me knows that I am a purple-bleeding, jersey wearing, never-miss-a-game-watching, die hard Ravens fan. But it wasn’t always thus. Growing up, Baltimore was a town without a team. Sure, we had the Orioles, but we were a football town at heart, and in the fall we had nothing but the Redskins and […]

ShareTonight I’m going to the Huntington Book Revue for a book signing.  Not just any signing. Tonight, I’m going to meet Bethenny. Let me just say that I have been a Bethenny fan since the first episode of The Real Housewives of New York.  Under the glitz and glam, there was something so immediately real […]

ShareOne of the last lines of one of the greatest movies ever made goes a little something like this: “Remember, Red, hope is a good thing.  Maybe the best of things.  And no good thing ever dies.” Andy Dufrense writes that to his friend Red from Mexico, prompting Red to break his parole and head […]

ShareSince my last post I’ve done a rather large overhaul on our pantry and our fridge. So far, so good; we’ve been able to eat mostly whole foods and from scratch meals, aside from two nights when we were out (see my comment about not being too nuts about the resolution). In my excitement (ok, […]

ShareOne of the things I’m struggling with, move-wise, is the fact that we’ll now have this whole house to take care of on our own.  That sounds horribly lazy, I realize.  Let me explain. We have a decent amount of work to do to bring our new abode up to speed. It’s a 1912 Colonial, […]

ShareI rode the elevator yesterday with a man who complained bitterly of the cold weather we’ve been having.  In fact, that’s pretty much all I’ve heard about since New Years. Every day, the weatherman talks about the “deep freeze in the Northeast,” or the latest cold snap. My doorman keeps telling me to “stay warm!” […]

ShareI think I may have already broken my New Year’s resolutions.  The thing is, I didn’t really speak them out loud.  So if I were a dishonest person I could just forget about them entirely and pretend I never made any.  Ugh.  Sometimes I really hate honesty. They were, as follows: 1) Only one serving […]

ShareYesterday I worked an all day beauty editor event here in NYC. It’s typically an open house for the launch of a new product. Beauty companies woo editors from magazines and websites, by means of food and drink and free lipstick, to sample their wares in the hopes of getting a glowing write up. These […]

ShareThe summer after I graduated from college, I took off on a backpack tour with my friend Katie.  We hit most of the major cities in Western Europe, including the lovely city of Munich, where we drank beer in steins bigger than our heads and grew increasingly impressed by the larger than life women who […]
