On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old

On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old

So here’s the thing: Full House represents a more innocent time. A Friday night tradition where the half hour spent with the Tanners was something you looked forward to, and when the clock struck TGIF, it was just you and the TV. And maybe other people in your family. And that was it. No phones, no […]

Sisterhood

Sisterhood

To start, I’m just going to blow right past the fact that I have temporarily abandoned my poor little blog. I’m back and we’re moving on. K? K. For the past few months I’ve been working with Whitney Thore, star of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, on her upcoming memoir. Whitney is a joy […]

Soda-Free Success!

Soda-Free Success!

Update: Success on the soda front! None in February and barely miss it at all. To be completely honest, I did have two Cokes while battling a nasty stomach bug in early March when I couldn’t eat or drink much of anything else and it made me feel a lot better. But I figure medicinal-only Coke […]

A Soda-Free Life?

A Soda-Free Life?

My good friend D and I are instituting No Coke February to try to kick our soda habit for good. (Though I do wish it was November so we could be doing No Coke November. Much better ring to it.) But these pounds are not going to lose themselves. I’ve written about body acceptance after baby and […]

Green Juice Horror

Green Juice Horror

I should have known better. It’s a drink made out of kale. Come on. No one wants to drink kale. And I should have done what any reasonable person would have when the cashier told me the price. Me, on an “I need to eat more greens” kick: I’ll try the One-a-Day green juice. Le […]

Meditation Situation

Meditation Situation

It’s a theme that keeps coming up for me lately. Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something? I have a friend who swears by meditation. Another friend wants to do it in a group setting with me (didn’t think that was the point, but whatever … being judge-y and ohm-like don’t seem to go […]

My 1-Year-Old

My 1-Year-Old

If one more person says “that was fast!” in regard to my babe turning 1, I may just be forced to say what I really think. And it’s probably not what I’m supposed to say, think or feel. No, it was NOT fast. It was a long, slow 365 days filled with more changes and upheaval than […]

Escape to NYC

Escape to NYC

For 11 glorious hours, I went back to my city as an early birthday treat to myself. I only had time to see just a few people (chief among them my hairstylist … I don’t trust my hair to Bethesda yet) and have a bday dinner with my mom. All the more reason for a […]

One Thing That Doesn’t Suck Outside NYC

One Thing That Doesn’t Suck Outside NYC

Update: I’m still homesick. I wish I could walk out my door and be pulled into the tide of the city. I miss that energy and the buzz of being surrounded by fellow city folk so much. As a friend recently said, just going for a walk in NYC is a social experience, even if […]

Homesick for the City

Homesick for the City

Wow, so this is homesickness. It’s been ages since I’ve battled these lovesick pangs for home … I think the overnight camping trip at Seneca Creek Day Camp in the late 80s was the last time, and I’m pretty sure this is worse. Now, even a shot of Manhattan on TV brings me to tears. But […]
