• Confessions of a Marathon Trainer

    I feel weird telling people that I’m running a marathon this weekend. It feels like I’m talking about someone else. When I first signed up, I told everyone! I was afraid I would chicken out, so if I knew there were umpteen people keeping me accountable, I felt like I could keep going. But now?

  • Home Tour: Guest Room

    A month or so ago I shared a few photos of our guest room with some ideas of how to improve it. Well, sadly I don’t have that much to show you. I added in a few things, decreased some of the clutter, spray painted a bit, but overall the room looks pretty similar. My

  • Home Tour: Our Bedroom

    Today we’re going to take a little home tour in our bedroom! I actually really like the way this room turned out. It’s white, blue, calming and very sunny, thanks to a giant window on one wall. ^Here’s our bed. Our white bedding and pillows are from Pottery Barn and the quilt at the end

  • On Gossip

    Gossip is one of the most popular pastimes for women. We love a good gossip fest, whether it’s about other friends, celebrities, or even bloggers we’ve never met. And as light and as innocent as it may seem to “share news,” it can cause real and serious destructions to relationships and the way we perceive ourselves

  • Hosting New Year’s Eve

    I’ve never had a really awesome New Year’s Eve. They’ve always been a little… anticlimactic. And yes, that is including the time I went to Time Square to watch the ball drop. I was cold, hungry, and it was a little too much for my introverted self. This new years, though, I actually had a
