Let's Catch Up!

Well hello there. . . yes I'm still alive.  The MS fatigue monster has been kicking my butt lately and I've pretty much been coming home from work and getting into bed any night that I don't have an obligation.  When the fatigue hits it literally takes every ounce of strength I have to do the smallest thing and blogging had to take a back seat.

The good news is I have a lot of fun things to catch up on so look out for a few new blog posts this week (hopefully).

October has been a busy month.  With the MAAV Walk coming up this weekend (still time to donate to support DV awareness) and Fashion Plates coming up in November both committees have been meeting regularly and keeping me busy.  I'm really looking forward to both events and can't believe how fast the fall is flying by!

I went to The Paint Bar with my friend Michelle. She had never been and we had to remedy that! We painted a Boston skyline scene and it was a lot of fun. I'm not loving my final product but I don't really care since I didn't plan to hang it up anyways!

You would never know Michelle was a first timer.  She was rocking it and her painting came out awesome!

I saw Gone Girl opening weekend and it was good. . . so creepy and such despicable characters but I loved it just like the book!  If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it.  Ben Afflect is amazing and Rosamund Pike is so well casting for this role. . . oh and she is gorgeous!

I went to the most spectacular "Pinterest worth" Frozen birthday party for a very special 6 year old little girl!  She was most definitely the cutest Princess Elsa and had so much fun at her party.  My friend Kendall had the cutest decorations.  I want to throw a Frozen party and steal all of her ideas!!

I went to my last Red Sox game (a couple of weeks ago) and while the game meant nothing since there was no way they could go to the playoffs it was a good time for a catch up gab fest with my baseball bestie, Emily.  Here's hoping for a much better season next year!  I still can't believe they went from worst to first and then back to worst. . . they should get an award just for that.  I'm assuming that is the first time that has ever happened!?!

I got my jamberry nails and this was my first attempt.  I love the candy corn look.  So fun! I could use some practice at applying them especially with my left hand.  So I already have a few issues due to poor application but otherwise I love them!

I saw this awesome musical, Finding Neverland, while it was in previews in Boston.  It will be opening on Broadway in March and I can guarantee you it is going to be a BIG hit.  The show is so good.  I loved the story and the music.  Oh and I loved the lead male character, Jeremy Jordan - remember him from Smash?  Oh how I loved him as the bad boy on that show.  He is SO talented with an amazing voice.  Keep this show on your "to see" list!

And I save the best news for last. . . I got the iPhone 6!!!!!  I've been living with the iPhone 4 since my iPhone 5 took a dive into a snow bank and let me tell you it hasn't been easy.  The new phone is amazing!  I love it and I'm going to guard it with my life.  Seriously I better not lose this thing!

That's all folks.  You are now all caught up.  Hopefully the fatigue will stay at a minimum and I can return to blogging on a more regular basis.


  1. WOW!!! You have been a busy lady! Make sure you're getting your rest.
    Blog when you feel up to it, I understand!

  2. Hope you are getting some much needed rest. I have heard good things about Gone Girl, i did like the book so I am excited to see the movie. The nails came out great. Woohoo finally on the iPhone 6 after the little tumble with the snow bank you need one.
