Victory Brewing 5K

I just signed up. Eep! In high school and freshman year of college I ran track and cross country. 5Ks were my thing. In college I sustained a pretty bad injury and stopped running for a while, but have since gotten back into through gyms I’ve joined and now a beer running club I belong … Continue reading

Royal Wedding Mania

  I love this picture for the obvious reason, but also because the little lady to Kate’s right looks just MISERABLE, and that is hilarious. I’d like to make a motion to bring back big, outrageous hats and not just for the Kentucky Derby or women in Baptist churches. Also, fascinators. I’m not really a … Continue reading

Lagerfeld’s Sweet Tooth

I don’t really want to judge, because I love eccentricities, but I think Karl Lagerfeld has lost all of his marbles. A) Have you looked at him? The way he dresses is awesome, but not really something anyone that’s not Karl Lagerfeld could get away with.B) He made this chocolate sculpture of his very good-looking … Continue reading

Lovely Surprises

Leading Ladies’ Lackluster Lunches

“Sometimes I pig out and I still feel great, and think, ‘That was so worth  it!’ That’s how I feel a lot of the time. I think, ‘See this little dimple of cellulite here? It was so worth it for that cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream!’ If I was stuck on a diet my whole … Continue reading

My New Favorite Meme

I’ve just discovered the Kate Middleton for the Win meme. Here are a few of my favorites: Check out more at http://katemiddletonforthewin.tumblr.com/. A few weeks ago I had a conversation with a fellow from Birmingham (England’s, not Alabama’s) and brought up the royal wedding.

A Rather Non-Traditional Easter

This year for Easter, my grandmother decided she felt like doing something “a little different.” Yesterday, myself, my boyfriend and my sister and her boyfriend packed ourselves into my parents’ minivan and headed to Momiji, a Japanese Hibachi restaurant, in Rio Grande, New Jersey. Only one other family had the same idea as my grandmother … Continue reading
