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 […]

ShareMy husband is one of those lucky people who comes from a big family on both sides. Not only that, but most of his cousins are in a similar age bracket: late 20’s to about 40, all with burgeoning careers and adult lives and families of their own. Last weekend, we came together with the […]

ShareWhen I was a sophomore in college, I had to get my tonsils and adenoids removed. At the same time, I also had holes poked into my sinus pockets so they would drain more efficiently. All of this happened over Christmas break, and though the doctor said it would be only about 3-4 days until […]

ShareThis morning started out like any other morning. Several “snooze” sessions, my best Oscar the Grouch impersonation, and a large cup of coffee. Until I looked out the window. After several days of much needed, heavy rain, the skies over Long Island dawned clear, cool, and heart-breakingly blue. The perfect day to be out in […]

ShareMy senior year of college, I lived with three of my best friends in a house just off campus, on South Sixth Street (206, to be exact) in Lewisburg, PA.  Many of the off campus houses at Bucknell were named, so people rarely knew the addresses, but if you said “Red Brick is having kegs […]

ShareMost of my friends seem to get pregnant just by blinking. Oops, we pulled the goalie and the very next day my pee stick came up with two pink lines! I love my friends.  They are my soul sisters, my laughter, the very best things in my life, alongside my family.  I never, ever want […]

ShareWhen I was working a regular 9-5 office job, I remember always having a real problem with lunch. Specifically, where to buy it and how much it was going to cost. In New York City, something as ordinary as a chopped salad can run you about 14 bucks. Add a drink and a piece of […]

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 […]
