New Years is by far my favorite holiday! Yes, it’s overhyped and totally blown out of proportion but I still like it, and attribute it to my Uncle Joe and Aunt Rosie. Every year the family would gather at their house in Brooklyn and celebrate New Year’s Eve. It was always so much fun to… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas! It will be the first time I’m not working Christmas Day in … in … in… hmm, well in such a long time that I can’t remember when it was! Holidays are always bittersweet for me, because I remember the Christmas and Christmas Eves we used to have when I was a little girl. My mom… Continue reading Merry Christmas!
If there is one food I am always in the mood for it’s pizza! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Seriously. When I was looking for my house in the Adirondacks, one of the towns I checked out was Schroon Lake. During the numerous trips there, my wonderful real estate agent suggested if I was… Continue reading De Cesare’s Pizzeria in Schroon Lake
Saratoga Springs is one of those cities that has a little bit of everything all meshed into one. I don’t get to spend nearly as much time as I would like there. There are tons of little shops and restaurants that until last week I thought was only on Broadway – the city’s main shopping… Continue reading Gotchya’s in Saratoga
In July I went to New Orleans for the first time with about 30 other sorority sisters from across the country. It was the first time I was there and it was so much fun! I’ve been meaning to write more about NOLA, and I will, but regular readers of this blog know I love “everything… Continue reading A Little Bit of NOLA in the Adirondacks
For the seasoned adirondack resident snow isn’t a big deal, but I was pretty excited to see all the white stuff! It looked a lot worse in the dark last night, but here are some quick pics I snapped this morning! They were all taken in Lake George! Enjoy! xo : )
Since purchasing my house in May, I’ve been broke and am being better than normal about what I spend my money on. I’ve never been a label whore, but it is nice to have some designer items. I also LOVE a great deal and refuse to pay full price for anything, which is why I love outlet… Continue reading Shopping Savings at Woodbury Commons
It’s so miserable out today in Manhattan – rainy, cold and dull! So, I thought I’d post a few pictures from my favorite lakes in upstate New York that were taken on much nicer and sunnier days than today to brighten up the mood. Enjoy! xo Lake George at sunset from Top of the World… Continue reading What a Rainy Day!
Every girl loves a new piece of jewelry, right? But, in this economy who can afford to buy a nice necklace or ring just because they want it? I know I certainly can’t, especially on a journalist’s salary. I decided to take a look at some of my old pieces that I don’t wear anymore… Continue reading From Class Ring to New Bling
Last night some insomnia kicked in and I started flipping through the channels. I was pleasantly surprised to hit on Live Well HD’s program Motion, because it was all about Lake Placid – one of my favorite places in the Adirondacks! (and because the show’s host has my dream job!) I watch as host Greg Aiello kayaked… Continue reading Lake Placid on Live Well HD
