This is the first time I’ve been home alone in awhile. I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s pretty fun. Over the course of the weekend I managed to hang out with friends (including an amazing brunch with Austin and Co.), organize the spice cabinet, loose my roommate’s cat (temporarily), and think…The last being most important. Needless to say, me and G dog are learning to be quite the team.
Listening to: Daves Matthews Band “Ants Marching” – love this song!
It only happens once. The world is at our fingertips. Will you make the most of it?… Will I?
Listening to: Florence and the Machine “Breathe of Life”
I went to Red Farm for dinner tonight with some of the most amazing women I know (Tara, Alexis, Andrea and Sarah). After a delicious meal, a few of us decided to go dancing. After talking the bouncer into letting us in at my favorite place, Le Baron, we realized it was an untraditional night with heavy hip hop. After a few dances, we walked to Mr. H to find that the party there was ending. Deciding to end our night at Finale, we arrived to find it was closed. It was a solid attempt and an A for effort. Despite not knowing a go-to dance party with classic, fun music, it was a lovely evening. And hey, who is to complain about going to bed before 2am (especially after working until 3am the night before).
p.s. I’m starting a listening to piece of the blog: Mazy Star, “Fade into you”
Hi World. I’ve been wanting to write for awhile but am not really sure where to start. So I’m going to start here.
I decided to have a weekend without any plans – the first in a very long time. As a result, I had the opportunity to finally paint my room and dresser. It’s a solid, straightforward white, and its lovely. My friend Alex is helping me pick out a few more items (rug, bedframe) and as soon as it’s ready I’ll post a few pictures.
A little background:
My new place is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I share it with a couple, Simon and Jess, and Ilana. It’s a gorgeous three bedroom and could not be in a better location. They love Greta and its really easy to get into the city.
Cheers to my first post in years (literally)!
I began my 28th birthday by running the Galloping Goose 10K around the beautiful Quincy Reservoir. It was a great start to a wonderful weekend. After the race, Adam and I drove up to The Ritz Carlton’s Bachelor Gulch Resort in Beaver Creek. After enjoying the soothing grotto, we ventured out to the hot tub to sit in the rain. Saturday evening we treated ourselves to some delicious champagne and an awesome dinner at Spago.
On sunday, my friend Kathy threw one of the most thoughtful birthday parties ever. She made a ridiculous array of amazing appetizers and treated me like a queen! It was very special. All weekend I was reminded of how fortunate I am to be surrounded by such lovely people.

Last October, Stef recruited me to help her with a beautiful wedding in Vegas. It was actually the largest even the Wynn hosted to date (besides Steve Wynn’s birthday party). She was a bridesmaid at the wedding so she was (thankfully) forced to enjoy herself (for at least part of the weekend). Stef and her friend Amy did all the hard work ahead of time and brought me on for the weekend as a runner. For those of you not familiar with this position, it’s basically the gopher that runs around like a crazy person doing whatever he/she is told. I find it surprisingly fun, although that may be because I only do it a few times a year. In any case, Adam decided to make a little vacation out of it and enjoy the sun and the pool while I worked my tooshie off. We were able to enjoy a great brunch with Stef and her parents on Sunday morning and O by Cirque du Soleil on Sunday night.

The only picture of me from the weekend. I am sooo exhausted after working until 4am the night before (Oh, and did I mention Adam and I thought it would be a good idea to dance until 3am on Friday night before my 19 hour day on Saturday??)
