Fingers and Toes and Friends

July 10, 2011


Girl friends make weekends better. And more colorful. Last night I met up with a couple of fantastic girls for wings (baked ones) and beer (singular) and got surprised with a bottle of bright turquoise fingernail polish, which I pretty much flipped over, and was beyond excited to try. Today I asked the internet to […]

Can we exchange numbers?

July 7, 2011


I’ve been less active on the internet lately. It is totally on purpose. I just felt like I wanted to simplify and just sort of quiet down a little bit. I joke a lot about swapping phone numbers with new friends like it is a big deal. Like we don’t follow each other on Twitter […]

March 5, 2011


Recently, I was unemployed (by choice, thankfully… and yes, I do know that I am lucky) for a couple of weeks, but I wasn’t  sitting around eating bon-bons like my former coworkers and I joked that I would.  In fact, I was doing just the opposite. I realized that I need to take control of […]
