Guest Posting

November 21, 2008

Guess what? Heather of Fergiesims  asked me to do a guest post on her blog about whether living in NYC was like it was depicted on Sex and the City.  Please.  I was born to write that post.  And now my destiny has been fulfilled.  Please check out my guest post at Heather’s!

To Be in NYC or Not to Be in NYC, That is the Question

November 19, 2008

Update: I’m featured on Neurotic Mom! Recently, I found out that the lovely Kelcey from The Mama Bird Diaries is considering leaving NYC.

Spoiler Saturday

November 15, 2008

I don’t mean to ruin this for anyone, but yesterday when I was on my way to work, I noticed that the Christmas tree was at Rockefeller Center already. But looking slightly more horizontal that usual. Also, the Saks Fifth Avenue windows have been under wraps for a week, so I am expecting something spectacular. […]

I Don’t Just Link You, I Love You!

November 14, 2008

One of the best things about blogging for me is reading other people’s blogs and figuring out how I can steal their material without them noticing. Obviously, I’m kidding.
