Prison Break Returns

08/29/07

~I’m anxiously awaiting the return of one of my favorite series of all time, Prison Break. I’m literally counting down the days until September 17th – it feels like an eternity since last season ended and I’ve been pining for a new episode ever since! Besides being a great show I look forward to having Monday night quality time with Rich – usually one of us has to compromise while the other watches sports (Rich) or reruns of Law & Order (me). This is one show that we are both really into and it’s become a fun tradition to make dinner and watch the show together every Monday night! -maria

Florida Feelings

08/23/07
~The countdown is on…for my mini vacation that is! Greg & I are heading to Naples, Florida on Friday morning! I really can’t wait to do absolutely nothing but sunbathe (with SPF protection, of course), read all of the delicious fall fashion magazines and run on the beach. We’re going on a sunset cruise in the Gulf of Mexico which will be beautiful. Then when we get back from our trip we’re back to unpacking, painting and decorating our new apartment. -candace

Movie Recommendation

08/20/07

~I went to see Superbad this weekend (along with half of the population of NYC) and loved it! I was a little nervous that it would be like Knocked Up – you know – kind of funny but nothing to write home about. Well, it was more like 40 Year Old Virgin! I can’t wait until it comes out on DVD so I can constantly quote lines with everyone at work! -heather

Puppy Pictures

08/15/07
~Both Maria & Heather R subscribe to The Daily Puppy, which is an online magazine all about puppies! They always send me links to the cutest puppies and I want to subscribe but I fear I’d never get any work done! It’s so hard to stop browsing through all the cute pictures, just try! -erica

Bachelorette Party

08/09/07

~I’m very excited—my best friend’s bachelorette party is this weekend, and because she’s a girl after my own heart, there won’t be any strippers or cheesy dance clubs…instead, we’re going to a quirky little cabaret bar in the West Village where everyone sings show tunes. This is probably some people’s idea of a nightmare, but for me, it’s pretty much paradise—anywhere I can sing Guys & Dolls at the top of my lungs without having people look at me funny is OK by me. -alexis

A Retail Steal

08/06/07
~Okay, so I’m really excited about my fabulous handbag find today! I was shopping around the clearance section at a department store near the office and saw this great soft brown leather bag. When I looked at the marked down price I thought it was pretty good deal, but then I realized there was an additional 30% off on top of that. So, I got this great bag for a steal!! -heather r
