Scenes from my week in Florida last week... I always love going down to West Palm Beach. I make a point to eat, drink and shop, enjoying all that WPB and Palm Beach has to offer. A few things to call out: the beautifully large succulent in the lower left, the delicious salad in the middle from BrickTop's, new shoes from the Off 5th outlet in the upper right, and cruising around in my step-mom's Mini in upper left. Til next year, WPB!
I've fallen into a peculiar pattern the past few years where I tend to have big life changes that come in a pair: a new job and a new apartment. It started in 2010, when in March, I got a new job and then that June, moved from living with 1 bestie to living with 2 other besties.
Cut to 2012, I got a promotion and changed roles (essentially a new job at the same company) in April and then in June, moved into my very own apartment.
Which brings us to the present time, where I started a new job in November, and later this month, DC and I are going to move in together!
It's odd how these to things seem to come as a pair for me. And while both are exciting and fun, man, do I hate moving.
The good things- besides living with DC- is that I will be in a bigger apartment with more modern amenities (yay for a dishwasher and in-unit washer/dryer!) and closer to all my friends in a different part of Southie.
I look forward to sharing pictures and decor from my new apartment!
It's a Hollywood and fashion-lover's Super Bowl, and last night's Academy Awards didn't disappoint. Ellen was so funny, and I was glad to see Jared Leto win.
Who were you favorites last night?
Lianna, Christine, Elizabeth, and Kate. If you missed them, click over to visit: Kyoto, The Atlantis, The Maldives, and a Road Trip.

Thanks, Kate of DomestikatedLife, for the final guest post, sharing her dream spring break with us today!-->
Last summer my husband and I took a cross-country trip for our honeymoon, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. On our honeymoon road trip, we did a route that brought us right through the middle of country: we stood under the St. Louis arch, had deep dish pizza and saw a game at Wrigley in Chicago, drove through the mountains of Colorado and saw a concert at Red Rocks, walked around Arches National Park in Utah, and even won big at the tables in Vegas before hitting the coast in LA.
After 13 states in 13 days, we ended up on the west coast and boarded a plan to take us back to Boston, and immediately thought to myself, 'Okay, where are we going on our next road trip?' So, my dream spring break would be another road trip, but this time somewhere totally different! I'd love to do a Southern drive and we've been brainstorming a good route to take for this type of a trip. I'd love to visit the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, drive down through the Carolinas and visit Charleston and Savannah.
I love road trips because of all of the unexpected adventures you find along the way, the picturesque detour you didn't expect to take, and the funny souvenirs that can only be found at the truck stop diner.
