#Adulting Is Just Pissing Off Your Eight-Year-Old Self

Yesterday I read this article. I will sum it up for you as: the writer doesn’t think #adulting is funny. Well, actually, she thinks it’s funny on TV, but not in real life. And I beg to differ. I don’t think anyone (or at least the majority of us) using #adulting is actually serious about…

No Screen Saturday

I am extremely addicted to my phone. (Aren’t we all?) But I tend to notice just how bad the addiction is on a lazy weekend day. I will literally spend hours sitting on the couch scrolling through social media, news sites, blogs, etc. It’s a colossal waste of time. So when I was listening to…

Pumpkin Spice Oreos: A Review

Let’s be honest, fall is really just pumpkin spice marketing season. So when we picked up our Pumpkin Spice Cheerios we couldn’t resist a package of Pumpkin Spice Oreos to go with them! I love the experimenting Oreo had been doing with their flavors in recent years. I had Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos that were to die for! Though I do still think dipping Oreos in peanut butter is better. Thank you Lindsay Lohan!

Six Things I Loved at the Morgan Library

After seeing the Fug Girls chronicle the Charlotte Brontë exhibit at the Morgan Library on Snapchat, I decided I needed to go check it out myself. I got in free with my work ID, but for you it’s $20 general admission or $13 with a student ID. And on Fridays, it’s free from 7pm-9pm. (Side note:…

I’m Basically Julia Child

In my twenties, my routine eating habits were a combination of ordering in, bowls of cereal, and snack food at happy hour. It was fun. It was delicious. And it was expensive. Now that I’m in my thirties, I like the idea of #adulting and actually cooking real meals (and not just the super easy…

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios: A Review

It’s that time again: pumpkin spice season! And as far as I can tell, the most anticipated new product of the Fall is Pumpkin Spice Cheerios. So naturally, I needed to try them. Now let’s just have a quick discussion about my love of pumpkin before we get started. I am very much a #basic…

Summer Sunrise

Every time I’m at my parents’ lake house, I say “I want to get up for sunrise” and then I never do. Because it sounds like a good idea until you have to set an alarm for it. But this morning, I woke up early naturally. (Well, not totally naturally. After too much wine last…

Childhood Memories: The Glen

It’s funny the things we remember from or about childhood. Everything seemed bigger, cooler, more magical. And it really feels that way looking back. Nostalgia is such a strong feeling! So to shake up the routine this weekend, I decided it was time to hike “The Glen.” The glen is a gully that runs along…

Escape NYC: Cold Spring Hike

After so much hiking on vacation in Canada, I think I caught the hiking “bug.” I’ve been feeling really eager to #getoutside. Luckily my friend Claire (the one I made a pie with!) also wanted to find some cool hikes near the city. My friend Liz had invited me to hike near Cold Spring before…

8 Things I Loved at The Met

The free air-conditioning. Yup. Sorry artwork, but it’s 97 degrees in NYC today. And my phone says it feels like 109 so my #1 motivator for visiting the beautiful Metropolitan Museum of Art was the air conditioning and lack of humidity. (I get in free because my company has some sort of corporate deal, but…

5 Questions We Missed at Friends Trivia

Could I BE any more obsessed with Friends? Nope. I have seen every episode many, many times. I own seasons 1-8 on DVD. (I think by the time 9 and 10 came around, people didn’t buy DVDs anymore.) I find ways to reference the show in many/most situations. I mean, I own a Friends cookbook!…

(Not) Taken from our Airbnb

I am a bit of a Nervous Nellie. My mind tends to go to the worst case scenario right away. If I’m on a roller coaster, I’m thinking about the safety restraint malfunctioning. If I get a bug bite, I immediately assume I have bed bugs and will need to burn all of my belongings….
