Some MUCH needed life updates!

Hey all! Remember how I used to post about other things besides Book Reviews? (NOT that that is a bad thing, but I DO have other interests!).  Yea, me too.  Life has just taken over at the moment—and I mean TAKEN OVER.  I feel like this has been me the past few months:

Mom Sayings on Mother’s Day – Part 2

P1020187

So last year I did a post on Mother’s Day about the many wonderful things my mom is/has said.  Since then, I’ve decided to make it a tradition and post one every year on Mother’s Day because my Mom is the best and says the best things sometimes.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did 🙂 [Read more…]

Jury Duty: Doing my civic duty

So the inevitable happened.  I got called in for Jury Duty.  Now, this is nothing new.  Somehow, I am always the one out of my family to get called every few years.  However, this was the first time I actually got selected to be on a jury.  It was for the Federal court so that meant I had to travel to downtown NYC almost every day for 3 weeks.

I think I have the NJ transit schedule memorized at this point.

Why Are We Afraid to Ask for Things?

I really wanted to do this post after an experience I had last week.  I had to make a phone call.  Doesn’t seem like such a big deal right? Dial the number; make the call; done.  But for some reason, I was freaking out about making this phone call.  It was a “business” type call. One where I had to follow up with someone who’s job it is to do what I was asking.

It sounds ridiculous that I was nervous.  Even as I’m typing this and looking at it objectively I know I was being irrational.  Regardless, I had to psych myself up to make this phone call.  It took me a good 15-20 minutes to formulate what I would say, how I would say it, what would happen if they weren’t available, what would happen if they were, and about 50 other ludicrous scenarios I could imagine.

Sweating, I made the phone call.  And you know what?  The world didn’t end.  I survived.  I asked what I needed to ask and it was completely fine.  So why the hell was I so nervous?

From Austin to Boston – Part 3

Our last few days in Boston were bittersweet.  We were having such a wonderful time that we didn’t want to leave!

Our second to last day was spent idling about Boston; doing some more shopping and enjoying the quaint streets.

From Austin to Boston – Part 2

Continuing our adventures, I awoke after a horrible night of sickness feeling perfectly fine.  We decided to take it a bit easier that day to play it safe and see how I felt later on that evening.

We walked over to the Italian district.  That’s one thing we loved about Boston–it’s such a great walking city.  Everything is so near one another.  Once we parked the car the day we arrived, we didn’t touch it again until the day we left.

We debated buying this shirt, but opted for a picture instead.

From Austin to Boston – Part 1

So my friend, Meesh, and I had planned on going to Austin, TX for New Years.  When that didn’t pan out we decided to reroute to Boston.  I know what you’re thinking, “But it’s so COLD in Boston!”  We actually lucked out! We had such warm weather that some days with my coat, I was too warm.

We had an absolutely fantastic time, minus a few hiccups, but I’ll get to those.

Of course, you all know mine and Meesh’s talent for overpacking. What made you think this trip would be any different? #wewereonlythere5days

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!

Wow, what an incredible year this has been! I was looking back on my New Years post from last year and I realized, I pretty much did every resolution dream I said I would.  I would say that’s an incredible thing, no?  Here are some highlights from 2015!
