Game Night

I have been like Cinderella all day on my hands and knees scrubbing my apartment. I  just love the feeling of a clean apartment.  This is all in preparation for game night with some people who are around on campus and new faculty.  It is so fun to see all these fresh new faces!  It is going to be a great year.

Country Club Casual?

I was invited to a "Country Club Casual" party. Does this mean I break out my Lilly in full force even though it is on the Thursday after Labor Day?

No Internet + Olympics= Hiatus

My Internet has been broken for the last 2+ weeks and I have been glued to the Olympics. I am now at the Honda dealership for my 45,000 mile maintenance appointment. I am crossing my fingers nothing is wrong. The last few weeks have been wonderful--2 trips to NYC, an amazing day on the Jersey shore, shopping, hiking, yoga, pilates, cycling, and catching up with friends. I am back to my regularly scheduled programming.

I LOVE the Olympics... I love hearing stories about individuals that worked hard and are able to achieve a level of performance that is world class.  I love how the whole world is on stage.  I love how the host country displays their culture!

I was in the midst of a hectic first year teaching in 2004 and in my first year of college for the 2000 games.  I am psyched to be able to watch more of these Olympics as they happen.  

I just got back to PA and am watching the Opening Ceremonies- amazing!  I will go to NYC this weekend to meet up with college friends for the weekend... the fun never ends!
