This weekend, I got walloped with the holiday spirit by our first snow of the season. Our little Brooklyn neighborhood got about 3 inches of the white stuff, a visual cue that it’s time to slow down, stay in, and get your fa la la la la on. I spent all day Saturday whipping up […]
Our best sandwich to date arrived a month ago–our daughter, Q (yes, we’re late on the announcement, but we posted about it on our on Instagram feed, didya see?) This baby is the most scrumptious, funniest little being I have ever met. She’s the perfect blend of E and I with a personality that keeps us […]
Christmas Eve, y’all. I’m not concerned with the presents or Santa. I’m concerned about breakfast. Merry merry gingerbread pancakes! E and I are headed up to Vermont for Christmas. As you know, E and I are avid snowboarders, and we’ve been going to Vermont the past couple of winters. The conditions had been pretty good […]
‘Tis the season to eat copious amounts of sugar. Hey, it’s less than two more until Christmas. And so, snickerdoodle s’mores. Last weekend, E and I hit up two holiday parties and a super fun birthday party at a club in Brooklyn and ended up drinking super fruity drinks and sleeping in super late on […]
I have to admit, it took me a bit to get into the holiday spirit. I don’t know what my mental block was about. We got our Christmas tree super early this year, and had it up and decorated before Dec. 1. I’ve been invited to several holiday parties. I ordered this holiday onesie to […]
E and I have headed south for the holiday. This is the first time I’ve been warm for Christmas, warm enough that even Frosty the Snowman here can get a tan. I believe this is the beginning of a new tradition for me. Post will be intermittent, but wanted to say Happy Holidays to all […]
For me, it’s the first day of vacation! Finally I can get into the holiday spirit!
I am so behind on my Christmas shopping. I have not bought one thing.
I finally embarked on holiday activities. Shopping. Making holiday travel arrangements. Sipping on holiday themed cocktails. Martinis have olives in them. Olives are green. Green says Christmas. So, deck them halls.
Hope you and yours are enjoying love, peace, sandwiches, and each other.
It’s Christmas Eve, and I think it’s a good time to take a break.
Home for the holidays means so many things.
and I haven’t even started baking Christmas cookies. In fact, the only thing I’ve done is buy a bunch of decorating tools, cookie cutters, chocolate chips and other baking needs…and leave them on the counter to collect dust. I better get it together in time to leave out some sandwich cookies for Santa.
E certainly learned his lesson after sandwich #209.
Rating: I can’t believe what I did this weekend.
Wednesday, 4 PM, Detroit Metro Airport. After a three-hour delay, two rounds of de-icing, and a bumpy ride home, we made it back to NYC.
Rating: I am feeling extreme Christmas anxiety. I haven’t finished Christmas shopping, and that includes buying a gift for E. And I just discovered that the store that I wanted to get his gift from is CLOSED ON SATURDAYS!!!! ACK! I am the worst. girlfriend. ever. EVER! This is why people drink Baileys in their […]
Rating: Remember I said I’m not allowed to eat sugar past 9 PM, for I turn into a hyped-up Gremlin and end up dancing and jumping around the apartment until well past E’s bedtime? Well, imagine how nutty I’ve become during the holiday season. I have eaten cookies for every meal during the twelve days […]
Rating: A holiday party in our house has a few requirements. Booze. Good food. Carefully curated guest list. A music playlist to shake your groove thang to. And a specific dress code. E and I hosted our First Annual Holiday Pajama Party, where the dress code required the same sleeping attire you wear at home […]
