Word Press

I've Moved... I hope you come visit.


My Blogs new addy:
(Little known fact: I've had a handful of gentlemen on numerous occasions ask me "what I'm jabbering about")

I'm still following all the bloggers (and friends) that I've come to know and love, and I hope you come see me too =D


I heard the song Changed, by Rascal Flatts, on my way to the gym this morning. I'm not a typical Sunday blogger, but I had to share the song with you. It spoke to me about some things I've really been struggling with lately.

My favorite part was the line where he says: "It didn't matter where I've been...because I'm not the same as I was then..." Wow

Friday Confessional

Well Hey There Pretty Ladies (and Gents)... Happy Friday. As always, I feel like Usher when I sing say this, but here it is: "These are my confessions..."

*I confess that I am putting myself on a spending freeze for 7-days, starting today. My idea (after seeing how this week goes) is to do a freeze on a monthly basis. I'm freaking out.

*I confess I did this for a workout this morning...and I'm doing it tomorrow, and the next day, and the next (actually for 7 days...notice a trend), and I'm really really sore already. 

*I confess that I've been in my pajamas since a little after 6.30 this evening.

*I confess that I don't miss soda...even though it's only been 7 weeks. I really thought I was going to go into huge Diet Coke withdrawals.

That's about it for today! TGIF and have a great weekend (:

Follow Away :)


The day to day functions of Social Media baffle me. I have a Twitter, which I rarely use.  I have a Pinterest which I love. I just got Instagram yesterday(follow me on either @Emme1022) to look at pictures of my perfect twin nephews, I (obviously) use blogger, and I use Facebook a lot less than I used to. 

This morning one of my girlfriends texted me regarding a recent conversation we had about a guy she's worked with on a couple projects. They communicate via email, in meetings, and the occasional work related text message. She asked whether she could add on Facebook him without being 'creepy.' (I'm assuming she texted me because I'm a huge enabler). 

My response was standard...she could only add him if she asked him to make-out when she added him...When she said no, I changed my conditions...she could only add him if she emailed him, texted him, and facebooked him simultaneously. Cause that wouldn't be weird at all. 

This got me to thinking as to why certain aspects of Social Media have become such a game, or require such an analytic thought process about pushing a button. My theory about social media is similar to my (slightly naive) theory on real life: you can never have too many friends. It shouldn't be a chess match or a cat and mouse game when adding or for that matter deleting someone. It shouldn't be thought of as weird or creepy to add someone you know (and have met more than once). In fact it shouldn't be a game at all, and it's too bad that's what it's turned into.

Ballet Skirt

One of my favorite parts about working at Ann Taylor is "playing dress up." I love that I work in an environment with so many incredible women...and on top of that, I get paid to shop on a weekly basis. When trying on clothes, I make an effort to choose pieces I would never try on, or purchase... I force myself try them on, and then usually occasionally purchase said pieces. 

This skirt is one of my favorite SATC skirts... the skirt Carrie was wearing when she got completely doused by a city bus (and then most likely said something profound or iconic).

 I found this skirt at Ann Taylor this past weekend while I was working at our Chic Makeover Event. A ballet pink, silk, asymmetrical tulle, skirt. Reminiscent (but much more affordable) than the skirt Carrie wore. Not only did it make me feel like a Princess (yes, I was twirling around the store in it), but it made me believe that Spring and warm weather may actually be approaching (even with the 8 inches of snow on the ground).

Now I just need to find a Mr. Big to go with the skirt ;)
Happy Tuesday Friends. oxo

Snow Day

 Due to the large accumulation of snow, coupled with house/pet/kid sitting, along with my desire to stay off the roads... I'm working from "home" today, while Bella the snow bunny frolics outdoors.
I'm drinking Hot Cocoa out of a pretty mug instead of my normal black flavored coffee in a (boring) stainless steel tumbler that comes with me to work everyday. I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast for myself and the kid I'm watching (but mostly for myself ;D)
I just emailed one project to an attorney, and am about to start on my second...and hopefully make a dent on a third by the end of my snow day. I'm wearing denim, flannel, and driving shoes, on a Monday.  I guess  this snow day thing isn't so bad.

Stay Warm Snow Bunnies!
