Friday night ten lovely ladies met at the Boston Common theater to see the fabulous Julie and Julia movie together. If I may speak for the group I feel it’s safe to say we had a fabulous time even though we did end up stuck in the third row from the screen. Thankfully Gayle soothed […]

Baby Emily and her Mommy, Meghan, took me out for ice cream last week after we continued our “Ladies Who Lunch” tradition. Just a dangerously short ride from their lovely home is the spectacular Crescent Ridge Dairy Bar. One of my few laments about living in the city is the inability to have this type […]

I’ve just returned home from an advanced screening of Julie and Julia, and while I’d like to stay calm, cool, and collected and write an analytical and objective review of the film without using effusive words I have to admit that this will be an utter impossibility because I found the film to be absolutely […]

I feel like I’ve been waiting for this movie to open forever at this point. I just loved reading My Life in France as well as Julie Powell’s thoroughly enjoyable Julie and Julia novel and I simply can’t wait until I have the opportunity to see Meryl Streep and Amy Adams bring both women to […]

Yes, I still had 25 cents to spare after my vegetable shopping spree that included rainbow carrots and ruby red beets from Atlas Farm, summer squash and zucchini, […]

There’s a home movie of me swirling around my family that unfortunately only exists on a VHS tape or I’d happily share it with you. Don’t worry there isn’t any night vision or scantily clad D list celebrities in it. It’s simply several very amusing takes of me around 7 or 8 years of age […]

When the weather is cold and dreary like this I always think about Glo Worm toys. I didn’t have the plush version with the battery operated light-up face. I just had one of the plastic ones that you held under a table lamp to charge. Then when I turned out my bedroom light the Glo […]

I embarrassingly admitted to the fact that I’d never been to the Penzeys Spices store in Arlington the other day and several of my fellow bloggers demanded that I make a command appearance as soon as possible. What’s a girl to do? Well obviously I obeyed and made it a priority to stop by that […]
