Oh God I’m 30.

By |

To start, what an absolute whirlwind of a couple of months (and especially the last couple of weeks). Life is being life, more-so recently than ever. To get through the worst news first — We have had a huge family loss with the passing of our sister from Italy, who left us completely devastated and […]

Signs from Above, or My Girth?

By |

Today started out like any other day. Ellie and I were the usual 30 minutes late, and traffic was moving well. The commute in was uneventful, and I even got to run an errand before work. It was all fine and dandy until I sat down at my desk. The universe then sent me message, […]

Cleaning Out My Closet!

By |

Sorry, this post isn’t a tell all of my deepest darkest secrets. I literally spent the weekend cleaning out my closet, the basement, and doing some renovations at my parents house in Albany. All those squats must have helped because despite going up and down the stairs a billion times, I can still walk today!

New Year, Playoffs, and Looking Forward to 2018

By |

Happy 2018!
I want to wish everyone a great new year and happy holiday season. The past few weeks were a ton of fun, full of friends family, and exciting changes on the horizon. Also, THE BILLS MADE THE PLAYOFFS. Who could have asked for a better ending to an otherwise bizarre year.

I think it’s clear […]

My New Favorite Cleaner (Also Don’t Judge Me)

By |

This post is very firmly categorized as a random thought, but I’m just so impressed with the results that I had to share.

We have a ceramic sink. With ceramic sinks come stains. It’s remarkable how quickly our sink collects stains and scuff marks. I’ve always had stainless steel sinks before this, so—surprise—I didn’t know how […]

What We’re Trying: Bees Wrap

By |

Since we’ve been together, Jon and I have been at least somewhat conscious of our overall impact on the planet. We try to do our part when it comes to recycling—in fact, Tonawanda just upgraded our little recycling bins to big, brand-spanking-new totes last week, and we are pretty excited to cram ours full each […]

I Miss Jet Lag.

By |

In September, we had the opportunity to travel to Europe with my dad, and we enjoyed two weeks driving across Germany, into Austria, through Liechtenstein, and lastly to Switzerland. It took us about two days to acclimate to the time difference, but we were soon in the German swing of things. For exercise, we walked a bunch […]

The Dress That Used to Be Too Big.

By |

Everybody’s been through it—even if the last time was when you were a kid and grew out of something: everyone has tried on an article of clothing to find out that, well, look at that, it doesn’t fit anymore. Maybe you grew taller, dropped down a size, or got mad swole in your lats. Or maybe, […]

Bucket List 2017!

By |

Guys, we made it. We got through the hellish trek through time that was 2016—the pain, the heartache, the loss . . . the weight gain. As Jon and I sit here on the morning of January 1, 2017, watching an episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy that’s talking about clogged arteries and bacon […]

A Week Full Of Donuts!

By |

So this week, from a diet, exercise and health standpoint, has been atrocious.

Dave, Brooks and Baby came into town, and we had a blast going around Buffalo, having delicious take-out and lunches at restaurants (side note: Lloyds Taco Factory is pretty good!), and hanging out. This alone, did not cause my self-destruction this week, […]
