i missed it

or it missed me. somehow fall and i crossed paths this year but never stopped to chat. i never went apple picking, i never took that helicopter ride through the mountains of new hampshire, i never hiked through a park and photographed the changing leaves.

i feel a bit jipped. i feel that life is whizzing by and i'm just getting one small thing done at a time. that's what a week and a half of sick and a month of crazy workloads will do to you.

more importantly, prayers for my mom. she lost her husband this week and she has a lot to do and decide in the near future...i love you mom!

another day perhaps

and since i've been stuck in my apartment for two days, i decided to take a walk, get some fresh air and see the sunset that i tend to miss every night (now that the days are so short). isn't it lovely?

forgive me

for my absence. it's been a little INsane around here lately. but i did manage time to get a haircut. to some of you this is old news but to others it isn't.

i have a nasty cold (sinus infection?). i hate getting sick so i like to get back at it by telling everyone.

(aren't i scary just staring back at you like that?)

new camera 101

i'm still getting used to the new camera. that little thing has a LOT of picture taking options. it's not so point and shoot as i thought it would be, but it makes up for it in the pictures. plus it takes great night photos. it illuminates the subjects without missing all the great lights in the background. yay for canon.

save the ta tas!

well as most of you know, it's breast cancer awareness month. a whole month dedicated to reminding people that they are making tremendous strides in the fight against breast cancer.

this is a great month to consume for the cause, so i found this bag on the avon website(yeah, remember that stuff your mom used to order out of the mini catalog that somehow found it's way into every public bathroom?). this merimekko designed bag is only ten dollars! i'm not kidding! and 100% of the net profits go to breast cancer research, about 6 dollars and change. so go buy a cute back and save the ta tas!

boredom and fear

is this not hilarious? here we are traveling over the manhattan bridge on the top of a double decker bus and I AM FREAKING OUT. it's called a 'fear' of heights for a reason. and there's j-man, holding on to me and obviously completely exhausted by the task...

time to recoup

had a great busy weekend with our CT peeps. they came out for some site seeing and we were happy to oblige. we rode the hop on hop off tour bus for two days straight and it rocked. if you ever come to the city and want to see it all, just buy the 50 dollar ticket, get yourself to times square, sit back and enjoy.

oh and then there was the whole 50 Cent walked right in front of me thing, interrupted us trying to get a good picture of our friends, but whatever. didn't even apologize. jerk.

so tired! do i have to go work and be a functional member of society? yes, because i have LOTs to do! happy monday! {i've been up since since seven and guaranteed to crash by, oh, 3pm}
