As You Read This (The Calm Before The Storm)…

It’s 9:21 p.m. on a Sunday, and I am laying in bed with my laptop because it’s freezing in my apartment.

I’m laying in a bed half covered with sheets, half without, because a few hours ago, I spilled coffee all over myself, and my bed.

Practically in tears, I stood staring at my coffee-soaked sheets, and thought about how I’m going to be confined to my bed for the next week or so. As quickly as that thought entered my mind, I immediately told myself to think about something else, and threw my comforter and sheets in the wash.

I learned tonight that I suck at putting fitted sheets on my bed by myself.

I’m laying in bed chugging water, because after midnight tonight, I won’t be able to eat or drink, and one of my biggest fears is that I’m going to feel dehydrated at 12:01.

About an hour ago, a friend and I went to Houlihan’s for dinner. (Don’t ever go there if you’re a vegetarian, by the way. The menu is not veg-friendly at all). I ate a salad with barely anything in it, and then came home and ate one of Emily’s delicious red velvet cupcakes. I’m still hungry.

I’m laying in bed writing a blog post, because writing is what I do, and because I don’t want to think about tomorrow, I’m going to show you this pizza instead.


There are no words for how good this was. None.


You’re staring at the Roundabout pizza from Smith’s Tavern, which is where I went with my parents for dinner on Saturday night. Don’t drool too much.

To distract myself even further, I’m about to show you a million pictures from my blogger meet-up today. Are you ready? Hope so!

Meet-up 10-7-10

Hi, Katie!


What Heather looks like when she talks about the Badgers:


After breakfast, five of us continued to a Wizard of Oz-themed Corn Maze at  Ellm’s Family Farm in Ballston Spa.

In case you’re not sure how a corn maze works, here’s Heather to explain it to you:

She’s awesome at explaining things. I think it’s her facial hair…


Alicia and Heather

Brendon, an employee at the farm, did an amazing job telling us how to get through the maze.


We nicknamed him B-Wow. Not sure why.


We’re off to see the wizard…




The wonderful wizard of Oz…
