After the Fact...
Today was a mayjah day at work. Do you remember how I had to take that Big Exam at New Job a few months back? Well, today I had the second test in the series and unlike last time I did NOT prepare for this one. Instead of spending the weekend studying, I invested my time watching the Devil Wears Prada on FX and hunting for the perfect pair of leggings. And then yesterday I decided it was...

Our Wedding: Good Times
This is Andrew, Em, Simon, El & an ice cream truck We had to stop for a quick pic with John the doorman! Our Wedding Party getting rowdy
A list of things that made me cry today:

Our Wedding: Going to the Chapel

Simon and I have been married for 3 years, 1 month and 2 days… and I...
High-Heel-a-Thon: a stiletto run for charity
(A pre-run kick-line photo) On Saturday Morning Mama and I ran the Lululemon High-Heel-a-Thon. The race course was short….just about a city block, but the elevated curbs, roadside construction and sharp corners made for an urban obstacle course, of sorts! Every runner ran in some sort of heels…there were stilettos, wedges, kitten heels and booties. My race strategy was simple:...

Come Clean Tuesday
I have not looked cute for work in about 3 weeks. No, seriously…It has been a really long time since I have showed up for work looking anything other than completely busted! I don’t know what it is (changing weather? my spending moratorium?)…. but every morning when faced with the decision of hitting the snooze button just one more time or giving myself the extra 20 minutes it...
