Fall weather lasted about two weeks. H-E-L-L-O cold wind.
diary: Weekend Plans
Eric and I are heading to Tennessee this weekend to visit with my family and go to a UT football game. I’m super excited and already have plans to steal my brother’s camera in order to take pictures! (thanks in advance Nathan!) With all the erratic weather happening across the country, I hope everyone finds something fun (and warm) to do. Have a great weekend!

The Great Switch-A-Roo: the act of applying/shedding/re-applying fall/winter garb (includes coat, scarf and/or gloves) as you commute to work. Typically caused by dramatic temperature changes as one exits apartment, enters subway, exits subway, walks to work, arrives at work. Tourists conduct random stops to execute; new yorkers do it while walking (extra points if you maintain your pace). ...
nyc dining: lupa
You like Italian food? Great. Then you’ll L-O-V-E Lupa. Lupa, owned by the famous Mario Batali, is one of Greenwich Village’s hidden gems. The food is delicious, the menu is edited (but provides a great selection), there are TONS of daily dishes, and it won’t break your wallet. This restaurant is rapidly becoming one of my favorite places to eat in NYC as a...

diary: busy and tired.
so sorry I’ve been a little MIA the past week (maybe two weeks…ha). No excuses except that I’m tired. and busy. and tired. It’s been a longgggg two weeks. In a nut shell, the following has happened over the past two weeks: 1) one grandfather had quintuple by-pass heart surgery, 2) one grandfather had surgery for a broken leg, 3) went on a trip to New Orleans for my...
