In 2010 I started this blog
Thanks for making my year so wonderful, tumblr. Wishing you all the best for a wonderful 2011.
Now that Christmas is over
Winter can get.the.hell.out.
I just wanted to say “hi” and “hope you’re doing great!” You were one of the very first people I followed on Tumblr and one of first who followed me in return. And as I started this little blog of mine, my husband would check up on it and say “Katie-Mac liked your post!” “Katie-Mac commented on your post!” “Katie-Mac is cute!” ...
It's the Season for Giving...
to me! Here’s how my shopping goes: “Two for them, one for me.” “Some for them, one for me.” I’ve given myself some pretty good gifts this year.
Rando Rae Fact of the Day:
sashayrae: I don’t like chocolate… like at all. Which I guess comes in handy these days because every EFFING gift basket that comes in this office is FILLED with chocolate. How bout some Sour Patch Kids in these things people? Even the things with peanut butter in them do not have the Rachael approved chocolate to peanut butter ratio (1/10 thanks). I don’t want all your fancy chocolates and...
In the workplace, at the dinner table, and walking down the street- we are...– Tim Gunn
Consisted of us fantasizing about finding Bubble Bobble after my husband discovered the instruction booklet the other week. So he made his way down to my mom’s basement and emerged with this: And this: Success! We hooked the Nintendo up at our house and found it to be in perfect working order. We had ourselves a little party: And were still awake playing at 2:30am. At this...
and this is how I feel about it: Have a great weekend!
On bothering the husband at work...again
Me: Hey! Guess what? Today on Gilt they're selling pastrami style smoked salmon! Um...yum.
Husband: Seriously? Is that what you just called about?
I need to order a gift of cheese. Any suggestions on where to get this? Thanks!
My love for New York knows no bounds
Sarah just posted this picture. And upon seeing it my heart fluttered. I love New York so much. So much. I can’t see a picture of the city and not have my heart race. Like you would when you see an unexpected photograph of the person you’re in love with. My husband and I have talked many times about raising a family in the city or Brooklyn. And ultimately, over the numerous...
I had my first ever cavity filled today.

Who needs a cookbook when you have Tumblr?
Thanks tumblr peeps!
There is an ancient Native American story about an old Cherokee who told his grandson about the battle that goes on within us. “My son,” he told him, “Inside every one of us dwells two wolves, one evil, one good. The evil one is angry and jealous, full of regret and arrogance, greed and sorrow, guilt and self-pity. The other is good. He is kind and loving, full of hope and peace,...
In general, I am a "less is more" type of person
But there are a few things where more is more and more is better. Such as: jewelry candy diamonds love sleep cheese money shoes holiday spirit You can never have too much of the above.
This weekend I hosted a holiday party at my house. For 50 people. Which wouldn’t be a big deal except we’re undergoing some renovations. So my whole downstairs was filled with boxes and furniture covered in plastic sheets and dust and in general just a big freaking mess. When I said I would host the party I hadn’t realized my downstairs would barely be finished from the...
He’s cooler than you, Dad. Just by a little, not much. But he’s...– The 5 year old referring to David Hasselhoff when he appeared on Spongebob.
He's awesome too
Husband: How long have we been married?
Me: Six and a half years.
Husband: And how long have we been together? 10ish years right?
Husband: Don't you think it's amazing that we still have so much fun together?
Me: I would of never thought it would be otherwise.
Husband: I bet other couples don't have as much fun together as we have. I bet other husbands don't have this good of a time with their wives.
Me: That's probably because the other husbands don't have a wife who is as awesome as I am.
The Greatest Gift Ever
I have no willpower. Whatsoever. I found this yesterday. THIS! And it was meant to be a stocking stuffer for my husband. But all last night I kept dancing around the kitchen singing “I got you the greatest stocking stuffer ever today! And I can’t wait to give it to you. I can’t!” And finally, I couldn’t wait anymore. I tried to talk myself out of ruining...
