1. I need my girls.
Being married is great. After almost 5 months of enjoying time with my best friend, I can't imagine a life without him. But I need my girls. I need 2 hour talks with Rachel. I need coffee dates with Rebekah. I need phone calls from Erica at 6:30 AM and debrief sessions with Jillian and Loo. I need dinners with Heather and Friday nights when Melissa shows up at our home in her slippers, carrying a Nordstrom magazine and sharing a like-minded perspective. It's really essential to my sanity.
2. I stayed in pajamas until 11:30 today.
Granted, I was doing work. But on a day when classes were cancelled and the sun refused to shine, getting dressed was not an option.

3. I've studied for 4 hours for my quiz tomorrow, and still feel unprepared.
No excuses. The study guides (yes, plural) are not doing the trick.

4. I ordered Christmas cards today.
I know, I know. I'm overeager. But we're nearing Thanksgiving and I didn't want our favorite design to be out of stock later on. No, that's not entirely true. I'm just forcing the Christmas season to begin. If Stop and Shop can do it, why can't I?


  1. should i be upset about this pic? because im totally unashamed about my slippers. :)

  2. 1. that photo of Melissa is incredible.
    2. I need coffee dates too. it was so refreshing.

  3. Melissa - I didn't post it to shame you. Clearly, I'm proud to be that fuzzy slipper-wearing person's friend. :)

    Rebekah - Agreed. To both things. We need to make get-togethers regular.


I love hearing from you!
